Most of the candidates running for President on both sides of the isle are attempting to be “politically correct” – and those that aren’t are marginalized, ignored, and slandered because they speak the truth rather than being “politically correct.” Americans, if they wish to save their economy, the constitutional guarantees of free speech and “liberty and justice for all”, and possibly their lives as President Bush spews rhetoric alluding to World War III – need to forget political correctness and listen to the facts, not the tap-dancing of Hillary Clinton, who by virtue of her wealth and her husbands popularity, is the front-runner of the Democratic Party.
Each and every citizen needs to ask themselves how “politically correct” is it that over 3,839 of our troops have been sacrificed in Iraq, and over a million Iraqis have lost their lives at an expense to the American taxpayer that tops $464,105,205,910 – and still, no end is in sight. In fact, if we remain “politically correct”, there’s a growing possibility that we will attack Iran and possibly enrage China and Russia – which could bring on World War III – a matter that the Presidency appears to brush-off as an “acceptable risk.”
Many Americans have come to understand they can’t trust the Mainstream News Media and have instead turned to alternative news sources such as Op-Ed News, BuzzFlash, and Raw Story; they also seek the truth and facts by reading the many political Bloggers that are stirring-up the political landscape by daring to be truthful and offer commentary that is insightful and defies being politically correct, but even among the Blogs – the stench of “political correctness” and marginalizing candidates they don’t care for is apparent, and today I’m taking specific aim at The Huffington Post – one of America’s best-funded and most popular Blogs.
This morning, on The Huffington Post’s main page, which is now in the political section, there’s a blaring headline that states: SHOTS FIRED The political page leads into an article that describes the recent Presidential debate and shows the pictures of the debaters – which is misleading on its face. The Huffington Post posted great photos of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards, and Christopher Dodd – but there were six (6) Presidential candidates attempting to take part in the debate, and The Huffington Post coincidentally left-out photos of Dennis Kucinich and Governor Bill Richardson, who were also present and were largely ignored even during the debate itself. At one point Dennis Kucinich interjected: “Is this a debate here?” Governor Bill Richardson also threw up his hands in despair and exchanged glances with Dennis Kucinich, according to The Huffington Post – and how can we blame them for expressing their frustration in attending a Democratic debate where they were almost completely ignored?
Why did The Huffington Post add to the marginalizing of Presidential Candidates by leaving out two of their photos on a front page “splash” that was intended to show the debaters? To me, the photo-spread by innuendo indicates the other two candidates are and were immaterial to the debate – and because of who the questions were directed to – the debate was skewed to only represent those candidates which are the frontrunner’s. If the Democratic Presidential Debates ignore viable candidates which have also entered the race, how are we to have a fair analysis of the candidates themselves?
Speaking of being politically correct, yesterday Dennis Kucinich dropped all pretenses of being politically correct and questioned President Bush’s mental stability LINK – which was addressed by Republican National Committee spokesman Dan Ronayne who stated that it was hard to take Kucinich seriously. LINK The Huffington Post also ran an article on Mr. Kucinich’s questioning of Bush’s mental health – and much to their discredit, they failed to mention other stories that have been available on the Internet since 2005 that have also questioned Bush’s sanity; if a lone Blogger like me has access to that information, especially in consideration that it ran throughout the Internet in an article that I republished yesterday, I can only surmise that it was “politically incorrect” to point out that The Commander in Chief may be suffering from severe mental disturbances that the public has the right to know about, and they could have reinforced Mr. Kucinich’s position by publishing or linking to those allegations, but for reasons of their own, they choose to ignore the facts and left Mr. Kucinich standing on his own!
For those who are interested, read these stories and make up your own minds:
The second article has to make us wonder what President Bush is taking in regard medication or other substances that is obviously “Top Secret” – however on this matter we can only speculate, as no concrete evidence other than the secrecy of the President’s fecal and urine are in evidence, but it does raise questions, and I believe those questions should be addressed.
I’ve attempted to keep my writing factual and non-partisan, and have pointed out the Democrats have also betrayed America since the 2006 Mid-term elections LINK, LINK, but I am totally miffed as to why when one or two candidates are attempting to impeach an obvious warmonger, Dick (Darth Vader) Cheney, and Dennis Kucinich is relentlessly attempting to save our nation from another war by bringing forth real issues that affect our economy as well as our survival as a nation, that he is in sixth place in the race of Democratic Presidential candidates. The only assumption I can make is that money talks, and those that have raised the most money are always being highlighted by the news and even certain Blogs, but those that support our troops and are attempting to ward-off another illegal war are essentially ignored!
The time for being “politically correct” is over. If we wish to save our Democracy and stave-off another war, it’s high-time that we listen to the facts and look deep within ourselves; do we want another glitzy President that once in office ignores the will of the people, or do we want someone that is attempting to save our nation from disaster, and in this writer’s opinion, Dennis Kucinich appears to be that candidate!
