Capture of Saddam Shows True Evil of Liberal Media and Politicians
self | 12/14/03 | self

Posted on 12/14/2003 11:59:27 AM PST by thesummerwind

I was suggesting to another freeper earlier that - somebody ought to start a thread to compile all examples today of disgusting, evil liberal spinning on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, etc. It was disgusting from the very beginning of the news of the capture.

An example stated on NewsMax; "Time Magazine columnist Joe Klein suggested that another 9/11 attack could revitalize Democrat hopes of defeating Bush next November. "This election, more than any other I've covered, is out of the hands of the politicians and in the hands of the events that take place in the world," he noted. "All it would take, God forbid, would be one [domestic terrorist attack] - not even on the level of the World Trade Center. You know, say they take out an elementary school or a movie theater or a shopping mall. "That could change everything," Klein predicted.

Klein was almost outrightly asking for something awful to happen, just for the Democrats' benefit. Somebody start a thread where any freeper who witnessed this stuff, writes it down. It was pathetic!! It would make a very illuminating thread!

..........

So now, I decided to start it myself. I was up this morning even before I posted third on the first thread on the capture, "Saddam Hussein Captured." And since then, I have heard and seen numerous lefty reporters and politicians say the most disgusting things in order to diminish the troops' success, the possible success of the Administration, and, at the same time, to try to boost their evil intent.

Here is hoping that every freeper who witnessed an outrageous, nasty comment today, would please include it here. If we collect all their comments in one place, it may serve to clearly illustrate their real damaging desires, and their outright evil . Thanks for any help.

My guess is that France and Germany have hit squads right now trying to find Saddam and kill him. --- no doubt about it. My God, if he talks what are the Dems. going to say?

I just got off the phone with a family member who gets all her news from the usual network leftist media sources. She was distraught over the death of Keiko the whale. I asked her what she thought of the big news of the day....the capture of Saddam. She told me that was no big deal and it did not mean anything.

I was amazed at that reaction, even from her. I asked what made her think his capture was not important. She said that his second in command (who's name she could not remember) now has all the money and he will just carry on the fight so catching Saddam is meaningless. Now I know she did not come up with that one on her own, so I must assume that is one of the ideas being pushed by the mainstream media. Marginalizing the significance of his capture will be important in the days ahead.

First thing I saw on ABC was Stephanopoulus saying how the Iraqi celebrations were so small.

And example of the vacuity was on ABC later where after Bush's speech the first thing they talked about was Bush's tone -- ie how he gave the speech rather than about the news itself.

They went on talking about it in terms of political nonsense.

Why do these "news" people forget they should first and foremost present information on the actual news event.

Of course many of them (DU - Chomskyites)) are unhappy---after all he is the leader of the "freedom fighters" who are fighting against the "invaders"

These are the same idiot goons that love Fidel and Mao and all the rest of the evil tyrants that Leftist ideology has spawned.

Regarding your comment that Lieberman "is the only dim I can stand..."

Why IS that? Possibly because he is the only democrat candidate who even PRETENDS that religion and God are a part of his life. Every other candidate: a) never mentions it, b) says he keeps that part of his life separate from politics, c) says he isn't religious, or even worse, d) mocks religion.

At least Joe has SOME sort of moral compass, paltry though it may be.

I was stuck running errands this morning with my 13 month old and all I had was NPR.

Their description of Saddam's capture sounding like a eulogy. They were obviously saddened. A few of the guests they had on were mildly upbeat.

I've read about the Great Debate before WWII and how once Pearl occurred that the Nazi sympathizers and isolationists STFU.

...not anymore...the enemy has breached the walls and it is....us.

Probably because they think they're too smart to just report the news. They are compelled to analyze and comment on it, so that stupid, ignorant, uneducated people like us can begin to understand it.

"Someone on another thread said that l'il Aaron was concerned that Saddam's dignity had been taken from him. Can you believe that sh!t?!"

Oh BARF...only in utter desperation will I ever turn to cnn for news. I've seen aaron brown exactly once...and the only response I can think of is that aaron must have been empathizing...one dignity challenged POS to another POS.

I happen to think that stripping SH of any & all dignity was precisely the point in capturing him alive. In fact, I don't think the capture could hardly have been scripted any more perfectly...we literally dragged him out of a hole in the ground. Only way it could have been tweaked is if a rock had been covering the hole---but that cheap chunk of styrofoam was something of a statement too, making crawling out from under a rock seem like a lofty ambition by comparison.

What really stood out is that it took such a small amount of time for the networks to go negative

Yeh, it was instantaneous. Kerry on FoxNews couldn't get a full sentence out without going to his sick talking points. What a loser. To think I knew his wife pretty well when she was Mrs. John Heinz. She was fine then.

But you're right, they had those *hitty, negative responses already in the bag.

I was just listening to NPR's special program;they had their reporter Ann Garrels, commenting, it was unbelievable to listen to her spew a vitriolic diatribe against the US military,the Bush administration, and everything going on in Iraq, which she described as "total anarchy".

Obviously, the capture of her hero has unhinged her (small,leftist) mind!

Here's how to create fast links- and, this works with any webpage or site, not just Free Republic...

1- keep your browser open on the page you wish to link, open Outlook Express, and "create new mail." ( One caveat- OE has to have a tab punched which enables that new mail to show a toolbar on its bottom with "edit, source, preview" showing. You may have to poke around the upper toolbar, but somewhere among its choices is a tab that switches on the bottom 3-tab bar in new mail.

2- hilite, copy and paste the URL in your browser "address" box over to the new mail, go back and hilite, copy & paste the title, and any other info you want. Do this as many times as you like.

3- when ready to post, punching the "source" tab in the email reveals the html inside it- simply copy & paste that to where you need it.

This usually works with pictures, too- it can be quirky, so always preview with graphics, tables, and the like.

Lucky that the troops dug Saddam up before he sprouted. Once he took root and went to seed, Sadam weeds could have covered Iraq, like Kudzu covers Dixie.

The capture of Sadam, should be viewed by the world as one of the best Christmas presents the USA has ever given. But it won't be, of course.

"Bush had better not gloat..."

The unmitigated gall of CNN amazes me! Chastising the President of the United States like they are school marms and he is an errant school boy! As if they have any credibility in the Bush administration at all!

They are ALL pieces of excrement to me, and they have once again shown their true colors -- The Communist News Network at its finest!

This is disgusting. Klein was engaging in two things. Wishful thinking, and offering the enemy of America his personal strategy.

Senator Rockheadfeller quoted by AP:

"----Sen. John Rockefeller (news, bio, voting record) of West Virginia, the senior Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement that the circumstances of Saddam's capture in a hole in the ground showed that he was "not managing the insurgency, and that he had very little control or influence," indicating that the attackers were not fighting for him, but against the United States."

CBS cut off coverage of Bush's speech right in the middle. At first it went to an empty football field and then back to Dan Rather who fumbled for a minute or two - himself even, apparently, realizing how pathetic their actions were, before going back to the 2nd half of Bush's speech.

There are no doubt some collaborators of his (countries & companies) that would like to see him dead to keep him from talking

----- most likely about 50 or so assorted agents getting ready in four or five countries to stop Saddam's nasty breath.

I noticed something else about the media today. I posted the following on another thread:

I've noticed a trend among the media today. I was listening to CBS news on the radio a little while ago and the reporterette said something like, "When the WMD are found..." No more "if they are found."

Reuter's made reference to the fact that "little evidence" regarding WMD has been found so far as opposed to their past statements that "no evidence" has been found.

AP said, "Aides even declined to describe Bush's reaction at the news, despite the long-sought development that could bring significant vindication for the war the president started nine months ago," which is opposite their past position that there was no justification, period.

I also heard Woodruff say that given the circumstances in which he was captured, there doesn't seem to be any way that he could have been coordinating attacks so his capture really isn't that big of a deal.

I heard one of them say that Saddam's capture was meaningless too, because Bin Laden was the dangerous one. Mara Liasson?

Add this one to your list:

"Given the location and circumstances of his capture, it makes it clear that Saddam was not managing the insurgency, and that he had very little control or influence," said Sen. Jay Rockefeller, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

From the FOX News website. (Democrats actually manage the insurgency).

The AVERAGE voter watched the news coverage today, and probably had dropped jaws! They might not KNOW what Fifth Column means, but what they saw and heard probably left them with a bad feeling about the media and the Democrats.

Their voices will be heard on voting day.

I have a MIL and a whole family like your lefties. ICK!

On CNN, Wolf Blitzer turned to a CNN expert correspondent, "veteran Secretary of Defense" William Cohen (from the Clinton Administration), urging calm and self-retrospection in the face of this good news, since after all, "this may seem like a day of celebration", but "we should remember that a week ago, there was coverage of Iraqis dragging U.S. soldiers through the streets."

CNN quickly returned to its non-biased coverage of Saddam Hussein's capture, featuring commentary on assertions that the Bush Administration needs to make sure its response to this event is toned-down enough so as not to come across as "arrogant". The CNN segment continued to remind viewers that "we are acting on behalf of Iraqis", and that if the Bush Administration takes too much pleasure in the capture of Saddam, it might leave the impression that the administration "has its own interests in mind".

Little wonder at the liberal response. They and Al Queda are cousins under the skin. They could give a flip less about this nation except to destroy it and everyone that stands in the way of their socialist pipe dream.

They are the enemies in the gate, we cannot continue to live with their presence here. They can move to France with like minded individuals, neither they nor anyone else has the Consitutional right, civil right, nor the freedom to turn the USofA into a socialist nightmare.

We should not tolerate them anymore. They should be told to leave, and in no uncertain terms.

Toward the end of Brian Wilson's spot on FNC, he was talking to Chris Wallace and John Warner. Wallace said "I expect that Bush won't repeat the 'Mission Accomplished' mistake from the carrier," and Warner observed "But this mission WAS accomplished -- they captured Saddam Hussein!"
