Playing Dumb

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.

On a tip from Sam Adams.

Maybe Ida didn’t notice the subtle flags.

    Funny how he blames drug use in America for violence in Mexico. I am sure the irony is lost on the Choomer-in-Chief.

    This epitomizes the typical Liberal in American today…

    “I don’t see it, hear it, or acknowledge it… therefore it DOES NOT EXIST!”

    If ever this country should become right again, the stinking filthy commies and their sympathizers holding that flag in Union Square would be deported to Chechnya, where they can waive the precious hammer and sickle and more fully appreciate the tender mercies of those who lived under tyranny in the USSR. In the meantime, keep locked and loaded, and your trigger finger itchy if they pay you a visit.

    Uh….notice her last name. She’s no doubt part of the tribe that HATES white Christian Americans, and will do anything to disempower us. These are the lovely people whose asses we saved in WWII, and this is the thanks we get.

    Don’t be surprised in your live in a heavily populated area, especially one that loves to welcome illegals, and you soon hear a VERY, VERY loud boom. Hang on!

    The Libtards New Motto is Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil. They are all willingly and knowingly blind, deaf, and dumb.

    Communism is just modified feudalism. However, under feudalism, a serf may become a freeman, a freeman may become a land-owner, a land-owner may become a Lord, a lord may become a Duke and a Duke may become a King.

    Under communism, they eliminated the middleman, leaving only the workers and the rulers. Only by the over-throw of the status quo is there a chance for the workers to advance, no matter how smart they are or how hard they work.

    I’d like to hazsrd a couple of guesses about Ida:
    1)She was, if not just a gleam in daddy’s eye, still poopin’ in Pampers when the Soviet Union fell, therefore it never existed.
    2)She was probably too busy lookin’ for “violent” Tea Partiers wavin’ Gadsen Flags who wanted to kill all the Commies rats to notice the red flags.

    Funny how he blames drug use in America for violence in Mexico. I am sure the irony is lost on the Choomer-in-Chief.

    Just as an aside, people who use illegal drugs, including Dear Leader, have blood on their hands. They are the folks financing the violent gangs who risk life and limb to bring them the product they crave. Without users, there would be no (as in zero) suppliers.

    So the 24,000 who have died in Mexico in the last 7-8 years are in direct response to US users, including Dear Leader.

    Of course, what does he care? He would willingly let a baby die who has survived a botched abortion. Think he gives a damn about the average American citizen?

    With regards to the former Communist USSR, I spent a couple of years in Finland in the early 1970’s. Finland shares a long border with Russia. I saw a couple of guard towers on the border to “keep the Finns out.”

    The Finns also have a shared border with Sweden (and from time to time, Sweden has controlled Finland). About 20% of Finns speak Swedish.

    In two years, I met exactly one (1) guy who admitted to knowing any Russian.

    There is a lot of hate there.

    progressives never seem to grasp that the very “end” they’re pushing and shoving to achieve will result in them having a government gun trained on them,too…

    Here is another guess.
    Ida likely spent most of her time in Journalism school under the professor’s desk performing Lewinski’s while he informed her classmates of their role as propagandists in the Ayers Marxist overthrow of America.

  15. Spider says:

    Communist flags being flown on the streets of Manhattan by professional anarchists who’s goal is to destroy America. In any other country, they would have been shot of gassed. But, this is America. Apparently, we have become a society that not only tolerates those who would destroy us, we welcome them and protect them.

    Prison inmates who show signs of self-destruction are put on what is called, a “suicide watch”. I wonder what it’s called when an entire nation shows those same signs?

    Thats the kind of flag i would like to see burning with the one holding the flag first wraps it around themself

  19. Eric says:

    When I was in West Germany back in ’85-’86, in the military, I had a USSR flag on the wall in my room – upside down. Everyone asked why, my answer was always “know your enemy”. After Chernobyl blew up, no one ever asked again. I wonder if I still have that thing.

    Ahhhh, the Reagan years.

  20. Comrade Kulak says:

    Useful idiots are first on the up against the wall list for the real commies.

    Clingtomyguns said: “If ever this country should become right again, the stinking filthy commies and their sympathizers holding that flag in Union Square would be deported to Chechnya”

    Nah, they would be allowed to stay. The Constitution ensures their right to speak and hold dissenting beliefs.
