Here’s some advice for media moonbats that should be easy to follow. When confronted with your sympathy for those who are more forthright in advancing ultra-left ideology, just play dumb. This is how it’s done:
While covering a May Day rally in Manhattan’s Union Square on Wednesday, NBC New York reporter Ida Siegal was cornered and asked if her network planned to show the communist imagery the protesters were displaying. Hilarity ensued when Siegal immediately became defensive, denying she had seen any communist imagery and asking of the “Hammer-and-Sickle” flags: “What do they represent?”
What the hammer & sickle emblem represents is the senseless death of over 100 million people at the hands of their own communist governments, and the wretched enslavement of hundreds of millions more. It represents the nightmare past for Russia and — if the folks running the “mainstream” media have their way — the nightmare future for America. Compared to the hammer & sickle, the swastika is a smiley face.
Ida Siegal would deserve an Order of Lenin prize for being the ultimate useful idiot, if her ignorance were genuine.
