In an age where conservative agendas have mired this country in a war based on false intelligence and a radical change to our military detainee policy, there are still individuals who seek to make all the many failings of the conservative-control over our nation for the past eight years appear to stem from liberal agendas.
Be it a ploy to sell books and promote ratings by giving false positions designed to illicit anger and promote misinformation or a genuine expression of a political perspective the damage of placing any one party as beyond rebuke is the same.
It is an attack on very nature of our political freedoms to engage in partisanship guised as truth. Though all groups are guilty of partisanship only one group has completely monopolized the market on misplacing the blame for all the things that are wrong with America on “the other guy” and that group is the conservative movement and the Republican Party combined.
The greater tragedy is that there is not enough popular rebuttal in radio and literature to combat this spreading of intolerance of political thought. The offenders are allowed to carry out their offenses as long as the public continues to buy books and subscribe to broadcasters who promote the false ideology of holding the conservative movement above all others, in all possible situations.
This unwillingness to address facts and face the nature of the failings within the public policy and the fiscal policy promoted exclusively by Republican representatives in government is appalling to me.
The Freedom of Speech does, and always should, protect these people from being silenced in any form. But what exactly is the force that silences the majority of the intelligent and composed rebuttal from major media and big publishing houses? It is both willful ignorance of the public from hearing any contrary opinions and the selected omission of formats who refuse to engage an issue as important as an attack on continued political freedom in the United States of America due to fear, or corporate bias, or both.
