1) Remember when Senator Trent Lott caused a fire storm over his lauding of Strom Thurmond? Remember the moral indignation of liberals of all colors- especially the Congressional Black Caucus- when Lott praised Thurmond, even saying that America would have been better off if Ol' Strom would have been elected President? Well, recently Connecticut Senator, Christopher Dodd made very similar comments about West Virginia Senator, Robert Byrd. He said that Robert Byrd would have been right on our founding, the writing of the Constitution, the great conflict of the Civil War, and many other periods in our nation's history. Matter of fact, Dodd said that he could not think of a "single moment in this nation's 220-plus year history when he[Byrd] would NOT have been a valuable asset." Facts: Bobby Byrd once was a proud member of the KKK. Byrd was a segregationist. Byrd voted against the 1964 civil rights bill. As late as a couple of years ago, Byrd, whatever the context, was STILL using the word "Ni__er." This doesn't even cover the fact that Byrd is a demagogue who has turned his state into a wasteland of pork & socialism. What makes these two incidents similar? The two senators in question praised men who have been NOTHING but divisive to this country & supported hate & fear over progress. The difference? It seems that the liberal mass media, the Congressional Black Caucus, and liberals, en masse, seem to be giving Dodd a free pass. Dodd, himself, called for Lott to step down from his position of power on the heels of his comments about Thurmond. Yet, somehow I doubt that he, Dodd, will either accept responsibility for his comments or resign from his position of power from any committees on which he serves. 2) In the most recent tumult at the Times, a New York Times entertainment reviewer was shocked when he found his review of a Broadway show had been altered. Describing a terrible show, which played up how wonderful it is to embrace life, his term "pro-life" had been changed to "anti-choice" by a low-level editor. Not only did it erroneously alter the intent of his usage of the term, it showed the subconscious liberal agenda & the worshipping of political correctness at the Times. Now, if these two incidents would have transpired AND been completely explored & exposed by the LMM, they STILL would have been disturbing. However, the fact that they took place and were IGNORED by the liberal mass media nearly makes their "cover-up" an intellectual & journalistic crime. Yeah, I guess it's only going to get worse when they REALLY try to get Kerry elected....though they will fail and fail MISERABLY!
