LIBERAL MEDIA SOCK PUPPETS JUST CAN’T MENTION ‘MORMON’ ENOUGH
Have you heard the newsflash? Mitt Romney is a Mormon! Yeah, I know; it shocked the hell out me too – all 42 dozen times the Obama Media Group (OMG) reminded me of it over the weekend. If you didn’t already know that the OMG was in the tank for the O-man, you’d think they were merely obsessed with Mormonism. While the OMG isn’t quite comfortable (yet) attacking Romney’s faith outright – except for MSNBC, of course – they are employing a not-so-subliminal form of advertising – just to remind us - ad nauseum - that the GOP presidential candidate is a member of that “odd, polygamist religion.”
None of this should come as a surprise, mind you; in the eyes of the liberal, anything and everything about the personal lives of conservatives is fair game for ridicule and degradation when it comes to politics. (Ask Sarah Palin’s kids – including Down Syndrome son, Trig.)
A recent study by the Culture and Media Institute, “Baptism by Fire,” looked at the coverage by ABC, NBC and CBS of the religions of the Republican primary candidates versus how the same lapdogs covered that of Democrat candidates in 2008. Interesting – but not surprising – stuff. Despite the fact that 75% of Americans identify themselves as Christians and 93% profess a belief in God, (according to the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life,) the once “major” networks have determined that, for some reason, the religious beliefs of this year’s Republican candidates is damn newsworthy. In 2008? Nope:
From Jan. 1 to Oct. 31, 2011, network stories mentioned the GOP primary candidates’ faith more than seven times as often (143 stories to 19 stories) than they had for Democratic hopefuls between those same dates during the 2008 election cycle. As it relates to Mormonism, ABC, NBC and CBS have made 57 specific references to Romney’s faith since Oct. 31 – on top of the more than 100 times they talked about it from Jan. 1-Oct. 31, 2011.
Funny how the liberal media “worries” aloud that Main Street Americans may have trouble accepting that Mitt Romney is a Mormon, huh? It never seems to bother itself with Islam, whose followers deem it perfectly okay to sexually mutilate – and stone to death – women, behead infidels and fly airplanes into buildings full of innocent Americans. Or Scientologists, who believe that Xenu, the dictator of the “Galactic Confederacy,” brought billions of his people to Earth 75 million years ago in a DC-8-like spacecraft, stacked them around volcanoes and killed them using hydrogen bombs. (What a “coincidence” that many Hollywood liberals – Tom Cruise, John Tavolta and Leah Remini included – are Scientologists, huh?)
Perhaps if Islam and Scientology contained healthy chunks of Christianity, they’d be attacked as well, huh?
Here’s MSNBC political analyst – and self-labeled Socialist – Lawrence O’Donnell:
“Mormonism was created by a guy in Upstate New York in 1830 when he got caught having sex with the maid and explained to his wife that God told him to do it. 48 wives later Joseph Smith’s lifestyle was completely sanctified in the religion he invented to go along with it, which Mitt Romney says he believes.”
Memo to Larry: While it’s true that Joseph Smith was a polygamist, the exact nature of his polygamy has been contested; his only children were from his first wife, leading many to believe that his polygamy was of a non-sexual nature. Hell, Larry – Muhammad married a nine-year-old girl and Gandhi’s 14-year-old wife was the victim of an arranged marriage; why haven’t you attacked Islam and Hinduism? I got it – you’ll get around to it if and when a Muslim or Hindu Republican ever runs for the presidency, right? P.S. The Mormon Church officially renounced polygamy in 1890, you disingenuous fool.
Also from NBC, Meet the Press host, the ever-sniveling David Gregory:
“Let’s be honest, this [Mormonism] is the core of who Mitt Romney is. He was a missionary in France for two years. He has been a bishop in the church, which, in the Mormon church, is effectively like a a priest. Philanthropically, he’s made huge contributions. He’s had a big impact on the church. And yet he doesn’t talk about it. It’s the core of who he is, and yet he doesn’t feel like it’s safe to talk about.”
“And yet he doesn’t feel like it’s safe to talk about,” jackass? Why would you suppose that’s true? Would you “feel like it’s safe” if you knew the merciless Obama sycophants in the media would be all over you like a chicken on a June bug as a result?
This hypocrite exactly makes the case why Romney avoids discussing his faith – yet in the end, wonders why he is leery to do so. Unbelievable – and predictable at the same time.
While some members of the OMG simply wonder aloud whether “Republicans,” or “America” is ready to elect “a Mormon,” others go so far as to ridicule Mitt Romney’s underwear. Seriously. Earlier this year, New York Times columnist Charles Blow was forced to apologize for this tweeted reference to Romney’s “magic underwear.”
Oddly, I haven’t read anything from this left-wing clown about the (Muslim) New Black Panther Party’s Darth Vader Halloween costumes, have you? Or the taqiyahs and burqas worn by their Muslim breathen? Nary a peep. Just another liberal bigot.
Check out this delightful anti-Mormon cartoon with a voice-over reminiscent of a 1950′s sci-fi movie:
It’s no surprise that nothing is out of bounds with the liberals in their impudent attacks against Mitt Romney; it’s all to be expected – it’s who they are and what they do. Never mind, of course, that these are the same people quick to wet their panties whenever anything about the O-man is questioned – including his religious beliefs. The real question is this:
Will Barack Obama condemn the attacks on Romney’s faith, or will he lie quietly in the weeds – as he did throughout the cruel attacks against Sarah Palin’s family? Or the threats against George Zimmerman? We know the answer.
The blatant hypocrisy of the liberal media would be nothing more than laughable – if it weren’t so insidious. And if there weren’t so many stupid people who insist on voting.
