- As you’ve undoubtedly heard, Democratic activist operatives got to ask plenty of “gotcha” questions during a televised Republican primary debate that were only designed to make the Republican party as a whole look bad. CNN, of course, denies that their hosting and filtering out participants for the debate was biased in any way. After all, any question is a good one, right?
- An excellent response to liberals and Democrats who are trying to justify the brazen dishonesty involved on the part of CNN and the activists.
One question I might try to take on later is whether or not liberal activism necessarily means liberal activists have to lie. After all, if you believe progress occurs through any challenge whatsoever to the present, then isn’t saying anything (it could be a lie, it could be the truth, who cares) always in the service of a greater good?
The Leftist ideology driving the Democratic party via the netroots now is probably far too radical to be allowed to have any sort of power – it seems to see all media as manipulative which doesn’t parrot its stance exactly. Which raises the question: What does a sustainable liberal critique of the Right look like, and how can we encourage a moderate Democratic party that is opposed to Republicans on issues but not openly pining for the death of the Vice President?
