Liberal “journalists” make up hit piece out of whole cloth.
Interestingly, after once declaring that Carson “fabricated” his story about West Point, Politico has edited that word from its headline, and the word appears nowhere in the current version of its story. But to a great degree, the damage has been done. The media is taking a hammer to a good man’s reputation, and casual observers may soon find themselves believing left-wing lies.
Mouthbreathing liberal idiots will believe every word of it, because it confirms their irrational, racist prejudices. Sensible people figured from the start the smear job at best bore only a glancing resemblance to the truth, and that the truth was going to come out eventually and would stand at variance with the lie–and that no matter what, those liberal idiots will still cling to the lie anyway, and insist that it’s the truth, and become apoplectic should anyone dare to present them with the facts.
You can’t really win arguments about words with people who routinely manufacture new meanings for them which are the direct opposite of the original definitions…like, say, the word “liberal,” just for starters. Right out of the gate, you know you’re not dealing with someone who’s arguing in good faith, rendering the whole process a total waste of time. More and more, I’m coming to believe that the best approach to debating with “liberals” is the same one Ignatz Mouse took with Krazy Kat.
Hovering over the feeding frenzy is the absurd media spectacle of mainstream reporters claiming they’re merely “doing their job” by diving into 50-year-old details of Ben Carson’s childhood. The same reporters who were not just incurious about the details of Barack Obama’s background in 2008 but actively hostile to those who asked reasonable questions about his relationship with admitted domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and his years of religious instruction from Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright.
At the end of the day, what are we left with? An admirable though imperfect man who rose from abject poverty to the pinnacle of one of the most challenging professions in the nation — all while never forgetting his roots, maintaining grace and humility even as he earned riches and honors. In fact, his life story — and his character — would make him one of the most inspiring Americans ever to occupy the Oval Office. But he’s a direct threat not just to leftist narratives regarding race and class but also to the leftist stranglehold on the black vote. And for that reason alone he must be destroyed. A “high-tech lynching” is again underway, but if recent history is any guide, the Left’s attempt to strike down Carson will only make him stronger.
Or, as AP says: “So Ben Carson’s going to spend the next week or two running against the media. Think that’ll work in a GOP primary?” PLEASE don’t throw me in that briar patch, Br’er Fox.
Admission update! Toothsome, filling, and nutritious snark from Hemingway:
In a story published early on Friday, Politico’s Kyle Cheney authored a piece headlined “Ben Carson admits fabricating West Point scholarship” with a subhed “Carson’s campaign on Friday conceded that a central point in his inspirational personal story did not occur as he previously described.”
There were at least five major problems with the story:
- The headline was completely false
- The subhed was also completely false
- The opening paragraph was false false false
- The substance of the piece was missing key exonerating information
- The article demonstrated confusion about service academy admissions and benefits
But other than that, A+++ work, Kyle Cheney and Politico.
Ahh, but it accomplished what they wanted: it gives “liberals” a fig leaf to cover their hatred of a black conservative candidate, in perpetuity. As I said before, they’ll cling to and believe it forever, repeating the lie again and again until, even if Carson wins election, libtard “journalists” will be expressing their “serious concerns” about his “questionable statements” about West Point years from now.
Read it, learn it, live it: we are not dealing with rational, reasonable, honest, fair-minded people here. We’re dealing with “liberals.” Expecting anything other than this sort of thing from them is foolish and self-defeating at best.
