Rush Limbaugh: Let Me Tell You Who is Behind the Media Echo Chamber

Yesterday, I was out and about running errands (Errands! Drive me crazy sometimes!) and so I heard a little bit of Rush during my travels.

He was reporting on a bombshell report by investigative reporter Paul Sperry about how the Leftwing  media echo chamber works.

The Progressives know how to manipulate language!  

You’ve seen how the media picks up words over the years and that word is repeated far and wide in an effort to stick it to a particular political figure the Left doesn’t like. Surely you remember “gravitas”*** and more recently “collusion.”

Heck, even the phrase “new American” which I have pointed out on many occasions is surely the work of the word-manipulators and is used to erase in the minds of uninformed Americans any distinction between illegal aliens, refugees, and other legal immigrants—they are all the same—warm, fuzzy, and to be welcomed “new Americans.”

This morning when I watched my usual 15 minutes of CNN (I want to know where they are going every day), I laughed and was reminded of Rush’s discussion yesterday of this important investigation by Sperry.

CNN used a certain word several times!

ACLU Jumping for Joy as Iowa Supreme Court says Medicaid Dollars can go to Transgender Surgery/Care

Advocates believe the decision is the first by a state’s highest court to hold that transgender people have the right to use public money for transition-related surgeries.

The federal government defines Medicaid as follows,

Medicaid provides health coverage to millions of Americans, including eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. Medicaid is administered by states, according to federal requirements. The program is funded jointly by states and the federal government.

And, according to the feds last analysis 65.9 million (‘poor’) people are covered. That is over 20% of the entire US population!  And, if the ‘progressives’ at the ACLU have their way that number will rise.

I’ve been writing about Medicaid (and Medicare) fraud, and this is one more example of the expansion of these fraud-ridden programs as part of the Left’s agenda to move America toward a socialist form of government.  (Don’t miss Leo Hohmann’s call to arms in my previous post.)

Vermont Progressive Somali Running for Elective Office Apologizes for Sexist Tweets

Diversity is beautiful alert!

His friend says the mistake was made because:  “…it was based on someone who came from a place where women are considered lower class — in Africa, especially in Muslim countries.” 

But, he is a changed man says the friend who is a “new American” like Jafar.

Here is the story headline,

Jafar Vows to Remain in Burlington Council Race Despite Sexist Tweets

Mohamed Jafar vowed to stay in the race for Burlington’s South District city council seat despite a VTDigger.org story published Monday that described a series of sexist tweets the candidate had sent as recently as 2015.

“I sincerely apologize to those I’ve offended. I sincerely apologize to those who were really surprised” by the tweets, Jafar, 22, told Seven Days. “My personality and character have evolved since then.”

[….]

Though he was contrite on Monday, Jafar, a Progressive running on a platform of equality and civic engagement, said that there’s “no chance” he’d withdraw from the race as a result of the revelations.

In the race for the South End seat, Jafar faces incumbent Joan Shannon, a Democrat, and Paco DeFrancis, an independent. Shannon and DeFrancis each told VTDigger.org that they were troubled by the tweets.

Progs contacted by Seven Days on Monday appear to be standing by their man. Councilor Ali Dieng (D/P-Ward 7) said he was initially disappointed by the tweets but would continue to support the candidate. Dieng has campaigned for and spoken publicly in support of Jafar. Both men are New Americans; Jafar is Somali and was born in a Kenyan refugee camp. He was 7 when his family immigrated to the U.S.

Dieng noted that Jafar was young when he tapped out the offensive tweets. “Where the mistake was made, it was based on someone who came from a place where women are considered lower class — in Africa, especially in Muslim countries,” Dieng said. “His life has definitely shown he has changed.”
