From an editorial in the QCTimes via NewsBusters:
“We’ve read and heard all of the justifications for the congressional impasse that is terrorizing our nation. We use the word ‘terror’ emphatically. What else can you call tactics the perpetrators fully intend to wreck the stock market, throw people out of work and remove any semblance of stability for economic growth?”
Where to begin on this inane piece of leftwing political propaganda?
For starters, maybe assuming the writers now have the power to look into “the perpetrators” motives and hearts? What? Has the QCTimes hired Jesus on staff now? How else could they possible know what “the perpetrators fully intend”? They can’t and they don’t—the writer is a Democrat operative.
And really—“We use the word ‘terror’ emphatically”? What word will they use when there is real terror or terrorism—Republicans? Rather than fostering free speech, which I assume QCTimes supports, this moronic editorial has poisoned public debate on an important issue—which might be their goal.
Way to completely marginalize your publication QCTimes—what thinking person could possibly take you seriously after this frothing-at-the-mouth editorial?
The reason I had to link to NewsBusters is because I had already used up all my “free” clicks to QCTimes, but Newsbusters also had some juicy comments about this mindless QCTimes screed. They called this editorial “a valentine” for Bustos “who defeated Tea Party Rep. Bobby Schilling in 2012”.
This isn’t exactly true either. This editorial was a valentine to former QCTimes employee Cheri Bustos—nothing else, which makes me think Cheri might be in trouble.
Also, Schilling isn’t “Tea Party”—he has said as much himself, but then his voting record isn’t very conservative either.
In my view Bobby Schilling isn’t Tea Party or conservative, except for culture war stuff, he’s a Country Club Republican.
