No 'national dialogue' needed? Lapdogs ignore Mich. union thuggery, invent Tea Party violence

Bingo. Standards and practices has become practicing double standards.

Yesterday’s events in Michigan proved once again that the Fourth Estate is dead. As Twitchy reported, Democrat Rep. Geiss said “there will be blood” from the Michigan House floor about the right-to-work vote. Michigan Democrats gleefully and proudly tweeted it, then quietly deleted. Why? Because “there will be blood” resulted in union thuggery and violence. But, you wouldn’t know that, were you to watch only mainstream media. The lapdogs were far too busy once again burying bones for unions and Democrats to, you know, report on the news.

There also won’t be any need for a “national dialogue,” just like after the FRC shooting.

Exactly! Paging Brian Ross. Remember, he recently tried to link the Aurora theater shooting to the Tea Party. With dangerous and potentially fatal results. But, no big whoop! The Tea Party is evil; that’s his story and he is sticking to it. Even though all evidence points to the contrary.

Ace of Spades continues to take the media to task.

That’s right. Just like “get in their faces.” Sssh! Don’t mention such things!

And, where is Bob Costas with one of his sanctimonious lectures?

Twitter users have had enough of the shameless media bias and lack of journalistic integrity.

It’s sad that a member of the media needs to be singled-out and praised for doing his job, because it’s so rare.

Sometimes to also push a false racism narrative.

Yes. Yet, arrests, violence and rape were covered up for the degenerates at Occupy Wall Street.

Frightening, indeed.

The media is shameless and shameful.

Update: Oh, they were only “voicing their anger, you see.”

And it was “mostly peaceful” and all.


Media malpractice: Even with #BrettKimberlin trending, lapdog media remains silent

Shameful media malpractice: ABC’s Brian Ross links Aurora theater shooter to Tea Party; Update: ABC admits no connection between shooter and Tea Party

Occupy the Truth: Citizens protest flagrant media whitewashing of Occupy violence; Update: Lapdog media absent; Michelle Malkin: ‘You rock the boat and you rock it hard!’

Project too much: Citizens continue to appreciate Chick-fil-A; Left, media frame as day of intolerance while bullying

#RestoringLove: Tens of thousands gather to honor freedom and America; media ignored

Backlash: Tea Party Patriots call on ABC to stop false reporting, citizens urge #FireBrianRoss

Media decide no ‘national dialogue’ on civility needed after FRC shooting; WaPo calls it a ‘scuffle,’ ideology ignored; Update: Media embargoes shooting

    TokyoJoe on pMSNBC covered this? Did he lament that it was awful for that young man to thrust his face upon that upstanding union member’s fist?

    Just another situation Obama can try to exploit in order to become the Chavez of the North.

    The operative phrase is “tacit approval.”

    Leftists, ask a smart friend to explain what it means.

      First they came for the communists,
      and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.

      Then they came for the socialists,
      and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a socialist.

      Then they came for the trade unionists,
      and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

      Then they came for me,
      and there was no one left to speak for me.

      Tacit approval immortalized,

        I wish it was possible to see who the hell down-voted Mr. Raymer’s reminder of the words of Martin Neinmoller.

        *hat-tip* (to Mr. Raymer)

    Stop watching the MSM. When the viewership is down, so is ad revenue. When revenue is down, so is the company. Ignore and bankrupt the MSN and take this country back!

  • MoxieLouise

    And the beatings continue as, on another front, the MSM captures scintillating photos of Psy and the President dancing gangnam style in the White House as the sheep bleat in approval. When the show’s over, the sheep will get fleeced. Yes, there will be blood. But the only way we’ll hear about it is if it’s liberal blood spilled by a conservative. Then it will be national headlines for weeks to come. Please don’t give them the satisfaction.

    Liberals: Political violence is okay (if it’s for a really good cause)

    To many, this attitude is surprising. Liberals are portrayed as nonviolent and peace-loving. And some of them are. But some on he left prefer an “ends-justify-the-means” mentality. And that seems to be on full display right now.

    Gawker’s argument essentially boils down to this: Crowder was asking for it!

    In other words, the justification is that Right to Work laws constitute “stealing” from workers. And since stealing is a violent act?–the workers are within their rights to retaliate.

    • Shawn Smith

      Ends justify the means, baby.

      • conservativechick

        Too bad someone didn’t punch out Michael Moore, then, who was actually “calling for violence.”

  • my preciousss!!

    we need to flood journalism colleges with conservative kids. the only long-term solution.

    • SpinMeNot

      A noble goal, but I wouldn’t subject someone like our esteemed friend Ms. Josephine (here on twitchy) to the journalism department of one of the colleges that would place her on the “inside track” to media prominence.

      She seem far too reasonable, intelligent, and kind to wish that kind of misery upon for the 3-4 years she would be there.

  • stuckinIL4now

    I’m shocked! I tell you, just shocked!! Oh no wait, I think I predicted this in a post yesterday. I guess if unions didn’t exist neither would this kind of violence, eh? Do we have to wait until somebody dies, but, then again, the slimestreamers will find a way to distort and ignore that, too–unless it happens to one of them.

  • John Kerry’s Forehead

    This is bullshit. I saw the video and that Steven Crowder guy repeatedly pounded on that union gentleman’s clenched fists with his face. Outrage. The nerve of that Crowder guy.
