Black Hats, White Hats, Political Correctness, Oh My!


The News reporting of the Orlando nightclub massacre this past Sunday morning was ultimately reflective of our dysfunctional so many ways.   I first heard about it Sunday morning as I woke up at 4:30, flipped on the TV, and watched CNN.  In the first reports 20 were dead with dozens more wounded.  

I watched CNN for 15 minutes and did not once hear the word "Islamic Terrorism" once.  Then, I switched over to Fox News and that channel was declaring the incident a terrorist attack.  My very first thought was one of disgust....that oh so politically correct CNN had decided not to characterize the attacks an act of terror...even as both local, state, and federal agencies has declared the incident a terrorist attack!  So, again, we learn that political correctness overshadows even our need to know the facts...if nothing else to keep us safer!

Our liberal politicians and main stream liberal media wonks have embraced political correctness as their religion.  We saw this a few years ago as illegal Mexican invaders became "undocumented immigrants".  The latest trend are the "transgendered confused".   And now, in an effort to not to offend Muslims, neither our President, nor the main stream media are willing to call a spade a spade...even when denial threatens the safety of every American!

I really long for the days when Americans were brave enough to "declare the facts"...when it was so much easier to tell the Black Hats from The White hats...when we were not politically correct cowards deathly afraid to tell the truth, no matter who the hell it offended.

Maybe CNN and MSNBC and NBC and CBS will come around and actually report the news someday...but don't hold your breath.

Won't happen unless people realize the Liberal Media is much like the Russian Media Outlet, Pravda and just stop watching CNN, MSNBC etc. It would be nice if they just "disappeared"...

Looks a bit promising, Frank. At least even many Dems and a lot of Independents totally gave up on MSNBC. There's hope.

Many comments have been posted on this and the most recent I read today was Orlando was actually caused by White anti gay racists! Really in black in white. This country is so over and it's going to get a lot uglier before it's done.
