Kernaussage 1 von 5

The political Left is harmful to society and controls Americans through its media influence.

Does the political Left scare you? With the group’s inconsistencies, hypocrisy and lack of transparency, it should. There's nowhere in America where the Left’s influence is more pronounced, however, than in the media.

For example, the events surrounding Clarence Thomas's nomination to the Supreme Court in 1991 illustrate just how amoral and dishonest the political Left can be. Liberals accused Thomas of sexual harassment; in fact, all he really did was rent porn and invite women on dates.

As an individual, Thomas embodied the American dream: the son of a sharecropper who was about to become a Supreme Court justice. Why would the U.S. Democratic Party want to tarnish the impressive achievements of such an American?

The author was shocked by the events surrounding Thomas’s confirmation, and it galvanized him to rethink his political beliefs and the state of political action overall in America. The realization that the media wasn’t neutral, that it had actively sided with the Left’s cause against Thomas, was too much.

He realized too that Democrats weren’t guided by long-established principles but instead by the desire for political gains. After all, Thomas was a Republican and felt the U.S. Constitution shouldn’t be concerned with issues such as abortion. In contrast, Democrats were pro-choice and wanted a pro-choice justice to uphold a woman’s right to choose.

It’s clear that the political Left controls the media in America. And if you control the media, you control society – the Left does this by using its influence with filmmakers, radio and print journalists to spread its propaganda. Taken together, this influence is called the Democrat-Media Complex.

The Democrat-Media Complex controls everything, and even helped President Obama get elected. In the run-up to the 2008 election, influential talk show host Oprah Winfrey featured Obama on her show twice.

As conservatives, we have to fight against this. The only way to respond to the Democratic Party's unfair media practices is to counter its message through new media, such as video, Twitter and Facebook.

While en route to a Tea Party gathering, the author learned the value of video firsthand. Democrats attacked his car with eggs then called the police, claiming that he had orchestrated the attack. Fortunately, the author had filmed everything and could set the story straight.
