Schieffer and Brokaw Throw Hyperbolic Rhetoric Into Overdrive

Left-wing “mainstream” media dinosaurs Bob Schieffer and Tom Brokaw are two of the most cartoonish propagandists ever to pass themselves off as respectable journalists. That people would trust these shrill partisan kooks to tell them what’s going on in the world explains how a center-right country can be duped into electing a socialist government.

CBS’s Schieffer holds forth on the hard left’s attempts to crush the NRA for defending the Constitution:

“Surely, passing civil rights legislation, as Lyndon Johnson was able to do; and before that, surely, defeating the Nazis, was a much more formidable task than taking on the gun lobby.”

On one side, we have patriots struggling valiantly to defend an individual liberty prominently enshrined in the Constitution. On the other, we have oligarchical collectivists aggressively devoted to gutting that Constitution, running roughshod over even the fundamental human right to self-defense, and attempting to render the population defenseless against tyranny by seizing its firearms. The absurdity of the latter comparing the former to Nazis should be perceptible even to liberals.

The preposterous comparison of a campaign to deny us an essential civil right to civil rights legislation was echoed by the still more insufferable Tom Brokaw of NBC, on a program hosted by a professional racist whose pogroms got people killed at Crown Heights and Freddy’s Fashion Mart:

“Reverend Al, it reminds me a lot of what happened in the South in the 1960s during the civil rights movement. Good people stayed in their houses and didn’t speak up when there was carnage in the streets and the total violation of a fundamental rights of African-Americans as they marched in Selma, and they let Bull Connor and the redneck elements of the South and the Klan take over their culture in effect and become of face of it. And now a lot of people who I know who grew up during that time have deep regrets about not speaking out. There were a few brave souls who did and they were knocked down pretty hard within their own communities for coming out and speaking out in a moderate way, not even in a liberal way about the right of African-Americans to be able to vote, for example, and to walk into any restaurant they wanted to. But there was a lot of silence at the time. Now it’s time for the people who do have strong feelings, who are feeling that they can’t do anything about it, to kind of band together and have something to say here.”

For liberals, everything will always boil down to how much they admire themselves for championing blacks, no matter how irrelevant this pose may be to the matter at hand. Yet Bull Connor was a Democrat like Brokaw. Before blacks became a privileged “victim” class, they relied for self-defense against the terrorist arm of the Democrat Party (a.k.a. the KKK) on the rights the NRA defends and preening fascists like Brokaw and Schieffer relentlessly attack.

The two make it obvious why most Americans “have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly.” No reasonable person could take these pompous clowns seriously except as threats to our country.

    So they finally had to come out and admit it, now that the Coroner has released some info along with Police. An AR-15 Rifle or the so-called “Assault Weapon” was not used in the school shooting. The shooter even tried weeks earlier to buy a Rifle but was turned down in the background check. So he had to kill his Mother to steal her rifle. There were initial reports right after the shooting, that Police found the AR-15 Rifle in his car, NOT IN THE SCHOOL. The Rifle was not used. The Shooter went into the school with 4 handguns. Not an Assault Rifle as the media has charged. I remember in the intitial hours of this shooting, the Police said they found the Rifle in the car. But the News Media had a Pre-Planned Attack already waiting, to ban so-called assault weapons and jumped on that line of reporting, knowing it was a lie. Including people like Piers Morgan who said the shooter used an AR-15 that shoots hundreds of rounds per minute, as if it were a machine gun. Could it be that the Democrat Liberals and the Media were pushing for the new law, hoping they could do it, before the Coroner released the info. I’m betting on it.

    Just look at the expressions and body language of these two self-important posers in that picture….

    A couple of washed-up newsreaders manage to make it to old age, and suddenly, in the minds of air-headed lefty moonbats, they are transformed into oracles and statesmen, brilliantly spouting great words of wisdom.

    Get over yourselves gentlemen….the American public certainly has.

    Do I see another impending caption contest here?

    “Yet Bull Connor was a Democrat like Brokaw.”

    B-b-b-b-bbb-but right after that all the racist Democrats left and joined the Republican party! (Although nobody seems to be able to name a single one.)

    I refuse to agree that I am an enemy of my country, and I refuse to agree that I am a threat to national security.

    Schieffer and Brokaw may live in upscale gated communities with private security. I live in Chicago, and we have different rules here.

    What little trust I had in the MSM news reporting was lost shortly after the 1980 election. I noticed that all three stations (ABC,NBC,CBS) told the same “news” stories in the same order with the same conclusions, with only difference being who was reading tele-promter and what feel good fluff piece they ended their program with.

  8. whotothewhat says:

    The one thing I read in the comments from leftist from time to time, is a idea that if they can just wait out us so called old timey right wing white old men that, nature will do the work for them and we will just die off. But look who the left has for mouth pieces from the lame stream media but old timey left wing white old men that are a lot closer to kicking then I am. I also subscribe to the fact that once the majority of lefty baby boomers start to kick it. A lot of there commie screed will die with them. Now I being a X’er know just how short a memory the following gens have in particular when it comes to a boring subject like history. That over the course of years after the leftist Profs and other commie toadie instructors have passed off to dust. The I am SPECIAL AND I AM DESERVING OF ALL THINGS WONDERFUL Millennials will be so wrapped up in there own selves that most of this commie hogwash spewed by these leftist fossils will be forgotten.

    The major difference between what Mr. Schieffer thinks the NRA is and what they really are is that the people Mr. Schieffer compares them to, the Klan and the Nazis used force and physical intimidation to argue their point, while the NRA tries to persuade using reason. Occupy Wall street has more in common with Mr. Schieffer’s bêtes noires than does the NRA, in that they have threatened those with whom they disagree with great bodily harm

    It occurs to me that gun owners are the new persecuted blacks of the 60s. The Democrats in the KKK in the 60s persecuted blacks, and now the modern-day version of the Democrat KKK is persecuting gun owners.

    I guess we need a Martin Luther King, Jr. to help us keep our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

    If Brokaw would take the marbles out of his mouth maybe someone would listen.

    If the African-Americans had guns, would they have needed to march to demand their civil rights?

    BTW, Bob Schieffer should remember that many Democrats voted AGAINST the 1964 Civil Rights Act. If not for a greater percentage of Republicans supporting the bill, it would have failed.

    “The Congressional Quarterly of June 26, 1964 recorded that in the
    Senate, only 69 percent of Democrats (46 for, 21 against) voted for
    the Civil Rights Act as compared to 82 percent of Republicans (27 for,
    6 against). All southern Democratic senators voted against the act.
    […] In the House of Representatives, 61 percent of Democrats (152
    for, 96 against) voted for the Civil Rights Act; 92 of the 103
    Southern Democrats voted against it. Among Republicans, 80 percent
    (138 for, 34 against) voted for it.”
