The media don’t seem willing to talk about Democrats, not accurately anyway. All the attention is on Republicans and their dysfunction in the election, as they see it.
If you weren’t a progressive Democrat operative, or a socialist by any name, then you probably did not hear of the meeting over the weekend in Chicago. That meeting was called the People’s Summit.
Just about anyone who is influential in the far left — which is just a euphemism for the active Democrat base — probably attended the 3-day Summit. But absent by reason of non-invitation was one Hillary Clinton.
The uber-liberal pundit Ellis Henican said on CNN over the weekend the Democrats have a hairline fracture but the Republicans have a canyon in their Party. Oh really? Totally dismiss the fight going on in the Left but drum up the revolution going on in the Republican Party, as they all portray it. There is so much distrust and vitriol for Hillary on the Left. Many of Bernie’s people have said they would not vote for her. Her scandals go way back, her self-serving interests do as well. The only one who benefits around Hillary is Hillary.
But the disdain for Hillary is not the whole problem. There is a giant fight on the left. Socialist Bernie was the only one who excited them. Hillary is part of the past and liberal Democrats have progressed far past the Clinton days. Bernie even calls his movement a political revolution. Is that a chorus of Kum ba yah? Add to it Hillary’s legal circumstances and investigation. So the unity and lockstep in the Democrat Party is pretty fractured. Then add all their emotional baggage and positioning to that.
This weekend’s meeting is exhibit A of the deep division in the Left between all out communism, socialism with their shelf-brand covert “progressive” politics. There is a lot of friction and many of them want to state their communist goals openly, proudly. They are tired of being closeted Marxists. They want to scream it from the rooftops. And their bitterness now for those less verbal progressives is fierce. Hillary, to them, is not far enough to the Left. But many of them don’t know just how far left Hillary is. The fact that she is not good enough should tell us a lot. It is even past Bernie, he was just a vehicle.
Media turned their attention to everyone else this election, allowing Bernie and his people to claim their territory, which is the actual base of the Democrat Party, They’ve taken control. Media took its cue from Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Jennifer Granholm, with David Brock and Axelrod thrown in. Even Hillary’s surrogates are shaken by Bernie supporters’ fierce confrontation whenever they meet. But media has not played that up. It pretends that everything is flowers and rainbows on the Left.
Though all you hear from Liberals, Democrats and media is about the dysfunction of the Republican Party and how it is in all out war and total meltdown. Get the message? Only Repubs have internal problems. Only they have wide areas of disagreement. So now that it is obviously clear beyond any doubt about the bias of media, turn on the TV and you will hear a steady harping about the Republican war. You’ll be treated to non-stop coverage about Donald Trump. For anyone who thinks all media coverage of Trump is a positive for him, I have a few bridges to sell them. That coupled with the Left-wing punditry amounts to a constant and continuous attack on Trump.
Right, Trump is being attacked from every direction. If you cannot see that then you aren’t looking. Hillary totally drifts off the radar, whatever it is she is doing.
Enter Fareed Zakaria’s GPS program
A real example of this is CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, who fashions himself a world dignitary and influential journalist. (read global advocacy journalist) He does an exclusive interview with Vladimir Putin, with other leaders on the stage. First question right off is “are we entering a new cold war?” Putin navigates through that. Then he asks about compliments Putin paid to Trump and got a few laughs. That opened the door for Putin to shred Fareed appearing to embarrass him. That wasn’t the plan. Then Vladamir went on to criticize our election process while Americans preach democracy. So he turned that right around on Zakaria.
Then Putin cleaned up his negative remarks on Hillary after Fareed brought them up.
That’s why Fareed is a good example, straight for the political as if by impulse. In fact, he opened his show with a monologue about guess who? Donald Trump. He asked where all the great Republican leaders, former cabinet members, were on signing the latest Never Trump pledge? He castigated the silent ones. He called on McCain to preserve his honor by signing it. Who made Fareed leader of the Never Trump Train? We know what he is trying to do, push Trump out and marginalize him. He had no shame directly doing it.
So is it any surprise he goes to Russia trying to use Putin to make a public laughing stock of Trump, and humiliate him in front of world leaders? Putin didn’t bite. That reminded me of the old Ted Kennedy communique to Andropov to undermine Reagan in the ’84 election. Kennedy and his pals promised Russians a media stage here if they would come to undermine Reagan’s campaign. Or in effect to campaign for Ted. Russians declined the offer. Fareed’s Putin interview was in the same vein.
He must be aware of all that, the Russians are, but it didn’t stop him. As media, Fareed went over there to stir up some Russian discontent for Trump – or at least to mock him.. Putin was not lured into being used as a tool of the Democrat Left. Putin claimed they stay out of foreign elections. However, Zakaria was soliciting and inviting their input.
Then Fareed went a step further playing the woman card with Putin and other leaders. What would they think of having a woman leader, with the not so subtle reference to their thoughts on Clinton being the first female US President? They brushed off the real question about Hillary while saying they have well-qualified women in their countries.
Now how bad has this election gotten, and how bad has the media coverage of it gotten? They prove there are no limits to which they won’t go to influence this election — whatever it takes. They found their whipping post, Trump, to collectively attack. No critiques about a woman who should be up on charges. But everyone from DNC to media, even supporters, ignores anything about Hillary as a non-issue. Actually, she claims as well to be the most transparent person, and fully vetted. However, she only ran in the 08 primary but was not vetted in the general election. She skipped that part. Now they give her a pass because, well, she’s also a woman. Did I mention that? She is the anointed nominee.
Now, even many Democrats see the fallacy with this whole charade for Hillary. Bernie was supposed to be just a placeholder for an opponent. Turned out he was way more than that. Turns out there is much conflict, turmoil, anger and unrest in the Democrat Party. They’re already in the red zone, in more than one way.
