The media feel and act like gods, but the American people are starting to see through their conceit.

Punch Drunk Hate
As this administration’s scandals fade into obscurity, liberals have become emboldened by the I can get away with anything atmosphere created for them by the liberal press and nurtured by a consenting entitlement generation. But this attitude (and not the scandals) may become their undoing. Because instead of using the covert strategy of “one step back, two steps forward” that has worked so well for liberals in the past, this administration has become openly power-drunk. For liberals to tip their hand and show their true colors before they have achieved complete dominance is atypical of their ilk, and basically reveals to the American people who and what we are really dealing with.
The press has not only created this atmosphere, but has become power-drunk itself. Instead of the being the foot-soldiers and unsung-heroes they used to be, they have become elitist celebrities, basking in their limelight, spewing whatever will keep themselves well-accoladed and well-paid. They feel and act like gods; even see themselves as gods. But the American people are starting to see through this conceit.
Eric Holder seems to be the new spokesperson for this new power-drunkenness. He seems to identify more with people of a specific race than with all of the American people. He refuses to go after the real abusers of civil rights (IRS, government surveillance), and instead mischaracterizes stand-your-ground laws as lynching laws, while at the same time trying to lynch one Florida Hispanic man. (Excuse me, “White-Hispanic” – in which case, we will need to start calling numerous celebrities, including our president, “White-Black.”) While this lynching serves to distract the public from real civil rights issues, it also detracts from a real tragedy – that 94% of black murder victims are killed by blacks. Maybe Mr. Holder considers this OK, as long as both the perpetrator and the victim make the proper fashion statement by wearing hoodies.
As much as Jessie Jackson might wish he could take back his 1998 comment – “There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start to think about robbery and then look around and see it’s somebody white and feel relieved.” – the comment is out there, and it is a sentiment shared by many, many people of color. And it is more than just a feeling. The statistics/facts overwhelmingly support their fears.
If Mr. Holder, Mr. Jackson, Mr. Sharpton, the NAACP, and others, still insist that shared skin color trumps our shared humanity and shared citizenship, then it is seriously time for them to get their own house in order. Maybe instead of boycotting Disneyland, they should be marching in their neighborhoods, carrying signs that say, “Brother, stop killing your brother!” But no. Instead, the problem of black-on-black crime is virtually ignored by the press, by politicians, and by so-called “civil rights” leaders, who instead focus on race-baiting to engineer liberal-supremacy to fill their own pockets. It is the ultimate pyramid scheme, with those on the bottom promised success, but guaranteed failure.
This administration promised to unite this country, but instead, has only polarized it into two groups: 1) those who are preoccupied with skin color, and 2) those who, regardless of color, are focused on the principles of success, for the betterment of themselves, their families, and their communities. Maybe, inadvertently, this administration has done a good thing by showing us which side of the line they stand on.
Most successful people were taught not to steal, to work hard, don’t complain, don’t blame others for what you don’t have, and don’t expect others to give you anything. Some in this country haven’t had the benefit of this moral upbringing, and liberal leaders are taking full advantage of this by stirring up envy, hatred, revenge, and even violence, in order to achieve their own “success.” But the price of honest, lasting success for individuals and society is still the same as it has always been, and all the complaining, blaming, and entitlement programs in the world aren’t going to change that. And good people, no matter what their color, still know this.
