RUPERT MURDOCH FOR PRESIDENT

Rupert Murdoch doesn’t need me to defend him but I’m going to anyway.

He owns Twentieth Century Fox, World News Corp, The Times, Fox News Channel, Wall Street Journal, (Ha, I am out of breath and don’t need to continue, but you get the point.)  Nevertheless, when he recently tweeted aloud his thoughts about Ben Carson and how sweet it would be to have “a real Black American president” it caused quite an uproar.  All of his rival media buddies, bloodied by his prowess in the marketplace now pounced on a genuine gaffe.  If they can’t beat him in business perhaps they can draw some political blood?

The fact is everybody knows what he meant.  He meant wouldn’t it be nice to have an African American president who actually tried to heal race relations instead of drive a wedge between them?  Wouldn’t it be nice to have our own American Nelson Mandela?  The kind of president we had hoped Barrack Obama would be.  The kind of president the world hoped he would be when they gave him the Nobel Peace Prize before he had even uttered a word or done a deed.

Pundits on the other networks piled on Murdoch, incredulously asking aloud, “Now, what could he possibly mean?  Does he mean that Obama is not really black?  What is his point?”

But we all know his point.  And we know that those pundits know it as well.  So let them laugh, act puzzled, and revel in their pious, moral superiority.  The joke is on them.

Ben Carson is hated and feared by the political police because he is Black and not a bigot.  And well, perhaps, because he is also a Christian.

Let’s face it, there is a new hatred in America, a new bigotry.  It is reflected in the stifling, anti intellectual media language and in the on air segment choices they make.  One network newscast recently refused to allow witnesses from the Roseburg shooting to say that the gunman asked his victims if they were Christian.  Instead, they allowed the quote, “He asked us our religion.”

After the massacre at Umpqua Community College people debated gun laws and the impact on society of violent videogames and our dismal mental health record but no one dared utter a word about the fact that in our current atmosphere Christians are being targeted for murder, simply because of their religion.  That doesn’t fit the narrative but it is an astonishing fact.  And don’t expect it to ever be called a “hate crime.”  That is reserved for the select and approved people in American society who should not be killed.

It is the national media which feeds this new bigotry, which is why they became so alarmed when one of their own, like Rupert Murdoch, insisted on speaking his mind about Ben Carson.

It is remarkable how this trend persists against all logic.  In 2007, CNN aired Cristiane Amanpour ‘s production of “God’s Warriors” which implied that Islamic terrorists were not much different than fundamentalists in Christianity and Judaism.  All three were equally dangerous.   It won the Peabody Award and was accepted as a basic truth about society.

By 9-11, the disparity between deaths at the hands of Muslim terrorists as opposed to Jewish and Christian terrorists had outdated Amanpour’s bogus documentary.  Today, I am told that “God’s Warriors” is shown to much laughter in dorms at Notre Dame, BIOLA and other Christian Universities, but the bigotry behind this media narrative has not changed.

A couple years ago ABC television tried to promote a sitcom called “Good Christian Bitches.”  One can imagine the outcry if the target community had been gay or Islamic? Christian’s are acceptable targets.  Their women are “bitches” and their young people can be ordered to stand up and be killed without comment from journalists.

There is no doubt that the backlash against this controlled speech about race and religion is behind the rise of Donald Trump.  The public is not racist, nor are they anti-Islamic, but they are tired of being treated like children and having insolent demagogues cram stilted propaganda down their throats.

They are suffocating in the smog of political correctness.  Moments of truth, such as Rupert Murdoch’s wistful reflection on Twitter, no matter how painful or rare they may be, are brief glimmers of hope that the Gulags are still a few years off.

Rupert Murdoch for president.  Oh, I know, let me have my fun.  Don’t be a “birther.”

    Right on! Good for you, writing this! I have been waiting for this. I could not agree more.

    Excellent Doug! I agree 100%.

  4. Joe Kolb says:

    Great post! It is hard for anyone to deny the bias of the media and how the facts are twisted as a matter of common practice. One had to spend a lot of time to get to the truth… time that the average good hard working American doesn’t have. The media relies on this, taking advantage of it to skew things in whatever direction they desire… whatever gets the ratings and whatever is politically correct. Thanks for your great post!

  5. David Perez says:

    Great article Doug!

  6. It’s genuinely very complicated in this active life to listen news on Television, therefore
    I just use the web for that reason, and obtain the most up-to-date
    information.

  7. Ed Wiens says:

    Insightfuflly poignant as always!

    This is a good one. Although I’m really a fan of Murdoch. Btw, have you heard of Rabbi Daniel Lapin? I recently heard about him from a friend and picked up a couple of his books. His stuff is really good, no matter your religion. Here’s his podcast for a taste: https://soundcloud.com/rabbi-daniel-lapin-show

  9. Greetings Doug …..been a long time since I posted on here. Interesting article on Murdoch . And as a side note ….we still have our David and the Princess ORIGINAL tape ….I do have one question that I would trust ONLY your answer …..Knowing your history as I do and the work you put into “real research” …..Why did Murdoch allow such an abysmal debate as Megyn (and her two almost silent sidekicks ) put on …..it was embarrassing and beneath a low point for FOX ……you have our ear as always . God Bless and “hello to family ” D & S

      Hi Donna, you know, if you check out “Megyn Kelly owned” on Youtube one of my interviews is listed as the most watched. But I don’t think I “owned” her. I thought she was great. For me, the harder the questions the better. Yes, she’s a lawyer and lays out the opponent’s argument succinctly, but goodness, the media should ask hard questions. She lets you answer. What bothers me is when a reporter misquotes you or reports on you falsely and doesn’t let you answer. (Here was the interview. https://youtu.be/Jc8WUYhW_yU)
