Chris Matthews called the annual CPAC conference a “crazy car” and CNN called it a carnival, highlighting the perceived extremism of Conservatives by referring to their “preaching” the “gospel” to the “faithful”.
CPAC’s annual conference is a feeding ground for the allegedly unbiased media. The media carefully scrutinized speeches and body language during the event to find that one word or phrase they could use to diminish the speakers.
This year, the one CPAC speech the lamestream media lauded was the one given by Chris Christie.
“He’s back!,” headlines blared. Apparently, the lamestream wants to help Republicans pick out their next candidate for president. So helpful! They have Republicans’ best interests at heart.
They especially loved this quote from Christie: “But the Garden State governor also offered a small dose of his usual brand of straight-talk, telling the crowd that Republicans need to ‘start talking about what we’re for and not what we’re against.’”
Lamestreamers will grab soundbites and one-liners while missing the point of the speech if they can.
They were less enthusiastic about the other speakers – all the other speakers. Check out the following examples.
According to them, Republicans apparently aren’t able to convey multiple messages though it’s okay for our president to be a multi-tasker:
CBS News: While President Obama attempts to rally his party behind a collective, economy-focused message, Republicans seem as splintered as ever.
Among those topping 2016 chatter, Mike Huckabee chose to discuss social issues and faith. Rand Paul talked almost exclusively about civil liberties and the National Security Agency. Marco Rubio focused on America’s place on the world stage. Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz independentlydecided to lambast their party’s political strategies altogether.
NBC News: “Palin appeared less as a prospective political candidate — though she received cheers of “Run, Sarah, Run!” — than as a conservative agitator before a crowd hungry for political red meat.”
MSNBC hinted at doom for the GOP, forgetting how uniting a force Obama is. They even got their Tea Party, immigration and gay rights plugs in:
“Although Republicans attempted to display a united front, the 2014 CPAC straw poll highlights intra-party tensions that remain unresolved in the wake of Mitt Romney’s failed 2012 presidential bid. Some Republican establishment figures have suggested the party needs to soften its stance on divisive issues like immigration and gay rights, putting them on a collision course with the more conservative Tea Party, which is pushing for a harder line in 2016.”
Media Matters, an IRS-approved 501(c)(4), claims to exist for the purpose of eliminating bias in the media while its true purpose is to spread left-wing propaganda. They hope to convince the public that all Obama crises are manufactured. They said this:
The right-wing obsession with Benghazi took center stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) as two prominent speakers, John Bolton and Sen. Mitch McConnell, focused on the attacks in an attempt to drive more media coverage of their manufactured scandal.
CNN titled an article, “Republican leaders preach the gospel to the faithful”, it started out like this:
Washington (CNN) — You can describe it as a political convention or a carnival, but either way, all eyes are on the Conservative Political Action Conference this week.
ABC News titled one of their articles: “Ronald Reagan: Dead for a Decade, ‘Alive and Well’ at CPAC”. Need I say more? Every chance the left-wing gets, they demonize Ronald Reagan because he was a successful Conservative president. They ripped into Reagan in the movie ‘Philomena,’ and ‘The Butler’. They even insult him and lie about him in Social Studies texts in high schools and colleges. The left-wing is desperate to ruin Reagan’s legacy.
Chris Matthews had his usual kind words to say: He called it a “whole tapestry of weirdness” attended by a “crazy car” filled with Sens. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio. Tingles further compared CPAC’s annual conference to the bar scene in the classic movie “Stars Wars,” which he said was full of “wild-eyed creatures from every part of the solar system.”
Huff Po slammed the major speakers with scorn and ridicule.
I could go on like this all day.
The media no longer reports the news, they decide the news. They tell the public how they feel and, if the media has to lie to do it, oh well, what difference…at this point…does it make?
