Liberal Fascists: Two DC Protests, Two pictures
Gun Watch ^ | 27 January, 2013 | Dean Weingarten

Posted on 01/26/2013 2:57:59 PM PST by marktwain

The coverage of two recent events in the District of Columbia shows how the old media in this country has dropped all pretence of impartiality. The first image is from yesterday, 25 January, in Washington, D.C.

Please consider how much media coverage you have heard about it.

It was a pro-life protest.

The second image is from the next day, today, the 26th of January.

It was from a protest against the the people's right to keep and bear arms:

Consider how much media coverage that you have heard of this event.

The camera shots are completely different. The first gives you a pretty good idea of the size of the crowd. The first image is from the new media.

The second shot does not give you a good idea of the overall size of the crowd. The image is from AP. This is very deliberate. I could not find any shots of the overall crowd of the second event.

By my memory, both events were described as having "thousands of protesters". Many outlets did not even mention the pro-life event.

I used the pro-life image because it was only one day apart from the anti-rights image, and because the pro-life cause is every bit as politically incorrect as the right to keep and bear arms.

The old media has become so self blinded and self deluded by progressive political correctness that it has become a tool of repression for the regime.

We may yet obtain pictures of the overall crowd at the anti-rights protest from the new media. I doubt that they will show more than a few hundred protesters.

The old media is incredibly powerful, and it runs the world.

New media is interesting, but has no measurable effect on the world.

The old media is not blind or deluded.

Those who believe it are.

The old media is deliberate and purposefully feeding us Bullsh*t.

I believe anyone with an open mind can see through the Media attempt to kill one event while praising the other.
The media has an agenda and Pro-life is against that agenda.
Anti-gun fits right in.

You see half of the Untited states population is under the spell of the Obama propaganda program called the Media. It elected him again. Tere isn’t enough money in the world to buy enough advertising to fight the Democrat owned media.

The Houston Comical ran 2 photos side by side this week in covering 40th anniversary RvW articles.

The “anti-abortion” protesters were having a “march”.

The “reproductive rights” activists were having a “vigil”.

Wouldn’t it be more accurate to say that the defenders of life were having a PRAYER vigil for 50 million innocents that were murdered?

What “vigil” were the pro-abort activists holding? What was there to “watch”?

Absolute truth.

Dean Weingarten of Gun Watch has come up with a term that is most appropriate when refering to what I call mainline socialist media MSM that is they are “tools of repression”.

Democrats Are
God deniers and congenital liars
for to share the wealth
it’s first your money then your guns
leaves you defenseless when crooks come.

The operative word in “The Corrupt Liberal Media” is “CORRUPT”

Liberalism has killed journalism.

Yet you get tons of much more turnout in the pro-life march then in the gun control march than the old MSM is letting us in on.

Through The Wire: Reuters Layoffs

By Kara Bloomgarden-Smoke 1/22 11:36pm

Last week was a bleak one at Thomson Reuters, the financial news and wire service giant. According to sources, as many as 3,000 people were let go, out of approximately 50,000 employees around the globe. Most of the layoffs came from the financial sector—the sales, training and analysts’ divisions—but some were on the editorial side.

“Yes, I can confirm there have been layoffs across Thomson Reuters today, including editorial,” Barb Burg, vice president and global head of communications at Reuters, told Talking Biz News last week. “Similar to efforts across the company, the Reuters organization is focusing attention on our global cost structure as well as the need to simplify and ensure we have the skills and expertise within our organization so we can continue to contribute maximum value to the business and our customers.”

Here is a new media image of most of the anti-rights march against the Second Amendment. It looks about the same as the pro rights rally at the Arizona Capitol that I was at the other day. I estimated that one to be a bit over 1,000. Interestingly, the Washington Post put the anti-rights rally at about 1,000.

New media is interesting, but has no measurable effect on the world.

I much disagree.

The libs have seized the advantage there (Google, Facebook, Wikipedia, etc) and have used it to plant their evil principles deeply in the mind of youth.

If you don’t think new media has an effect (Google, Facebook, Wikipedia, and other progressive controlled media) you need to talk to some young people. Liberal doctrine is being implanted 24/7/365.

Well there’s a big difference between “surviving” and “prospering”.
