On Tuesday, October 12th, 2004, The Kerry Campaign, representing the Democrat Party in America, made the following statement to a broadcast audience.
“Listen - they better look out there at Sinclair Broadcasting," campaign spokesman Chad Clanton threatened, as the controversy around Sinclair's decision to broadcast a documentary about Kerry's anti-Vietnam War protests continued to heat up.
Sinclair Broadcasting has plans to air a documentary on Vietnam Veteran prisoners of war who were tortured for 'War Crimes.' Fearing that a factual potrayal of the consequences of Lieutenant Kerry's anti-war rhetoric and criminal accustations against his comrades, might reflect poorly on the candidate, the Left is up in arms. In the aftermath of Michael Moore's anti-Bush propaganda film, dozens of 'hit' books on the President - including a few literal ones - two fabricated smear stories from CBS Broadcasting plus an open 60 minutes forum for any author willing to bash the President, and the Democrats ongoing misrepresentation of Bush's National Guard Service, the Left has the nerve now to promote censorship... or worse. This is an astounding admission from America’s perveyors of progressive tolerance, as they appear to be threatening a broadcast company, and representative body of journalism (the press) for behaving in a manner detrimental to their regime. In isolation, the statement might be dismissed to the inane ranting of a clearly unbalanced individual in need of immediate intervention. But, taken together with the numerous stories of increasing violence toward Republican voters, organizations, and campaign offices and the equally disturbing (and quite overt) nationwide incidences of voter registration fraud, there is a clear trend emerging on the Left that threatens to inaugurate a frightening era in American history. In this nation today, we have a party with political parity, backed by the majority of the fourth estate, willing to abandon their ideological legacy, for the sake of one election. Inevitably it will relegate them to the unforgiving pages of historic infamy while damning this nation to a future of uncertain chaos. H.G. Wells once wrote:
"I'm not a lawyer, but they've stirred up a lot of hatred," Clanton continued to rail on Fox News Channel's "Dayside with Linda Vester."
"We've got thousands of people now very mad, jackballed up - calling these [Sinclair]stations, protesting, threatening boycotts of their sponsors," he claimed. "I think they're going to regret doing this," the Kerry spokesman warned before adding -"They better hope we don't win." (reference)
I grieved to think how brief the dream of the human intellect had been. It had committed suicide. It had set itself steadfastly towards comfort and ease, a balanced society with security and permanency as its watchword, it had attained its hopes --to come to this at last. Once, life and property must have reached almost absolute safety. The rich had been assured of his wealth and comfort, the toiler assured of his life and work. No doubt in that perfect world there had been no unemployed problem, no social question left unsolved. And a great quiet had followed. (The Time Machine)In fact, it is the Democrats who had better hope they don’t win this particular election season. They stooped to the level of vermin after the 2000 election, when they damned the Constitutional election process, feeding on the detritus of rhetoric and propaganda, and delivering pestilence forever into the process. After the attacks of 911, the Left stooped to stygian depths to undermine the nation's authority, respect and resolve in the War, showing more solidarity with an inhuman enemy, then with their brethren. For the sake of the 2004 election, they have sold their political souls to those demons of chaos, with whom they must forever reside in the darkness of venal victory. They have accepted the terms as offered - ignorance, dishonesty, depravity, intolerance, self-loathing, violence, malaise and a few million fanatic suicide chickens coming home to roost. As it stands, the Democrats time machine is set for three weeks from today when they hope to retake that which they believe to be rightfully theirs. Kerry and Edwards have been annointed as the personification of 'anything but...' From now until then, 'anything goes' to make that journey possible; all of which might be forgotten as if it never occurred. Not likely! Their faith in a nation being as delusional as they is as ill-founded as the belief that Saddam had no WMD and Al Qaeda was in sixty other countries on Earth except Iraq. The stage will be set for the next progeny of despots willing to slide the bar ever lower for their 'right' at the throne by any means. If successful, the plagues the Democrats will unleash can never be put back in the box...
...and hope will go home with the man from Crawford.
