DAILY DOOM ANTIDOTE: Punching holes in media’s narrative that claims widespread support for Obama — 10/2/2012
Let’s do an exercise this morning (but not P90x or anything, because we all don’t have to be Paul Ryan…though, that would be nice).
So, the corrupt vintage media in Barack Obama’s Ministry of Truth (Minitrue for short) pushes a narrative that there’s more widespread support for him in 2012 than there was in 2008; this is, of course, required if the polls that Minitrue expects you to believe without question could possibly be accurate since in the polls that show Obama leading he’s snagging a bigger share of the vote in swing states than he did in 2008. That’s just not possible, folks.
If you stop and think about it, you’ll see how irrational it is.
When I was a kid, I must have seen JAWS on TV late at night and for a while I had an irrational fear of great white sharks (how racist, I know). I was six or seven and would get the jitters in a swimming pool…or around Lake Erie…and I’d even be a little leery getting into a bubble bath because I couldn’t see to the bottom of the tub. This lasted until my parents taught me how to stop, think, and decide if my fear was rational or not by seeing if I could punch some logical holes into whatever crazy thing was scaring me.
Let’s do that with Minitrue’s latest pro-Obama narrative. Does the public really love this man MORE in 2012 than in 2008?
Here are some things I could think of just off the top of my head indicating that is NOT the case:
* 2009 — saw the rise of the Tea Party, which didn’t much like Obama. Minitrue kept trying to claim the Tea Party didn’t exist, but there sure were a lot of people packed into those rallies and none of them loved Obama more in 2009 than they did in 2008
* 2009 — Town Hall Meetings against Obamacare proved the public hated this bill, despite Democrats and Minitrue (but I repeat myself) claiming the public loved it. Minitrue did its best to hid the Town Halls from the public but film emerged online showing Democrats terrified by the negative reaction they were getting in their districts. Some Democrats even stopped returning to their districts so they would avoid being screamed at.
* 2010 — Glenn Beck’s Restoring America Rally in DC…which easily had over a million attendees. I know because some friends and I were there and we saw how Minitrue kept trying to lie and claim there were only 50,000. It was easily the largest assemblage of people around the Lincoln Memorial that I can think of. None of these people loved Obama more in 2010 than they did in 2008…and they came from around the country to show it.
* 2010 — Midterm elections…and Minitrue spent several months in the lead up claiming that Democrats would not only hold the house but would also gain members. It was the biggest blowout against a party in power in many decades. Nancy Pelosi was removed as Speaker, despite claiming up until election day that she’d retain her gavel. Democrats lost governorships, Secretaries of State positions, and state legislatures. Clearly, Americans did not love Obama and Democrats more in 2010 than they did in 2008.
* 2008 – 2012 = the antics and adventures of Andrew Breitbart gave Americans opposed to Obama energy and encouragement and people responded with enthusiasm for everything he did. We will forever be grateful.
* 2011 — Occupy Wall Street fizzled out and did not return in the spring of 2012 as promised. Democrats at first embraced it as the antithesis of the Tea Party but then had to disown the “movement” when it clearly focus-group tested poorly and hurt the Democrat brand further. In 2012, Democrats and Minitrue are not pretending that OWS never happened.
* 2012 — Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day…a massive outpouring of support for a business besieged by the Left. Minitrue refused to cover it, but word got out anyway and lines stretched around for blocks causing some locations to run out of chicken.
* 2012 — “You Didn’t Build That, Somebody Else Made That Happen”…a quote from Obama that I think sealed his fate and that objective historians will one day agree is what cost him the election in a “let them eat cake” moment. Minitrue pretends this didn’t happen either, or that Obama was taken out of context.
Despite Minitrue’s best efforts, 2 + 2 must always equal 4.
There is no great white shark in the bathtub or swimming pool.
Fear is the best weapon in the Democrats’ arsenal. The Alinsky Rules for Radicals assume their opponents will cower and quiver with frost-fingered fear.
Sitting down today for a few minutes and thinking about things that punch holes in the narrative that Barack Obama is popular and beloved by the majority of Americans is a smart thing for you to do on a personal level…because once you do this, you’ll see just how much Minitrue lies to you…and how ridiculous the lies are because consistently the tee-vee networks and the newspapers attempt to rewrite history to better suit Democrats today.
They’ve tried to pretend an awful lot of things since 2008 didn’t happen…and that’s just AWFUL period.
What else is on your mind today?
