Chris Matthews Nails It The LA Progressive
Once upon a time people this - ”ill informed” shall we say? - were to be found mostly on the fringes of the American political scene. Not even in the days of old Joe McCarthy did it get this strange – not on such a national level anyway. Back in the good ol’ days, the type of behavior we are witnessing today was pretty much restricted to KKK rallies in the deep south and the editorial offices of the Wall Street Journal. A half a century ago political extremism hadn’t yet gone mainstream. It has now. In fact it’s ready for prime time! For this we can all thank the nice people at FOX Noise.
It was Rupert Murdoch’s “News Group” that promoted this movement from their inception. Murdoch himself has denied this accusation over and over again, but the videotapes are there - and video doesn’t lie - unless, of course, it’s a taped replay of a typical Sean Hannity program. The Plutocracy, with FOX as its propaganda arm, has brilliantly managed to convince a huge segment of the American public – a lot of whom could barely be qualified as middle class – that the problem with this country is all those damned, bleeding heart Liberals. The question needs to be put to them: “Where were you assholes when George W. Bush was driving this nation into the economic ditch?”
