…of the MSM’s treasonous behavior (they passed “borderline” treasonous a long time ago), LC & IB Woody has a perfect example here.

The only quibble His Majesty has with LC & IB Woody’s conclusion is that his particular example doesn’t, in our opinion, fall under the Sedition Act as he suggests.

It does, however, fall squarely under Article III, section 3 of the Constitution of the United States of America:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort

Will they ever have to face charges?

Of course not. We gave up enforcing our own laws at around the same time that we gave up on the concept of personal responsibility.

    Your friend seems to have trouble applying his own rigorous code of intellectual honesty to his own comments section. I offered a dissenting perspective which was promptly consigned to the memory hole. Since then, he has taken to moderating all comments before publication to ensure no messy dissent finds its way into the mix. His right, to be sure, but cowardly.

If Mr. Sanjo doesn’t like my views or the way I handle his rants he can surf on.

    That’s not really for me to say. It certainly wasn’t your common-or-garden trollery. It cohesively followed the premise + premise = conclusion style of argument and points were substantiated with citation. There was certainly no reason for ‘Woody’ to delete it other than to advertise his reflexive intolerance for dissenting opinions.

    But all this is beside the point, which is that Woody’s moral authority to criticize liberal media bias is diluted somewhat by his anaphylactic intolerance to deviations from monolithic wingnut dogma on his own fucking blog.

The selling of Knight-Ridder music to my ears. I used to deliver the San Jose Mercury News, a full time liberal paper. A good paper, in their defense, but it ends there. I personally experienced some of their left wing benevolence……a long story. But, not to digress, blogs are comng on strong, this site here a strong contender. It does require some discernment sorting the wheat from the chaff, but no longer does the left have a hammerlock on the written media…or for that matter any of it. Long overdue, in my mind.

    Regardless of what your loony professors in your humanities classes told you, there are real people at the end of the line involved with the WOT. YOur brainwashing has obviously made you more sympathetic to the cave-dwellers than to the men and women who risk their lives, fortunes and sacred honor so that you have the right to be an ignorant ass. Your choice, sir, and I reserve the right to fight for your right to wax idiotic. Without being ridiculed by a supercilious idiot like you.

    With all that said, we do not object to your politics, which are nothing new to most of us. Nor the way you express them, which is sadly typical of you and your self-righteous ilk.

    What we are really objecting to is your fervent idea that your way is the only way and any other idea is not worth consideration. You come off daring to lecture us, when I am certain that you have not seen and done a tenth of what I have.

    Do you have any verifiable facts to back up your hysterical, pompous rants? Or are you going to bitch about how you wasted a half hour typing your verbal diarrhea-as if we chould appreciate it? What, do you want us to pay you overtime? Do you have any proof besides your feewings on the matter that your position is the correct one? Can you express these proofs without resorting to potty mouth?

    Can you actually put names to faces, or do you consider the entire US military a faceless, amorphous blob to be destroyed?

    It appears that you troll several of “wingnut blogs”, you poor attention-starved sot. You seem to be awfully obsessed with “wingnut” blogs.

    Yeah but I’ve got it under control. I can totally quit y’know. Yeah. I can give it up any time I want.

    Idiot.

    For what little it’s worth I have only ever posted on two wingnut blogs, Woody’s and this one.

    …someone so superior to us simple rednecks.

    Yes! She can be taught.

    Ah, it’s so gratifying when a wingnut finally sees the light.

    To tell you the truth, wanker, I am not interested in what you have to say because you are just another little rotten commie bastard incapable of thought and devoid of value.

    Oh, this should be fun…

    A few quick questions me m’dear. Firstly, what, precisely, did I write that gave you the impression I was a communist?

    Secondly, have you actually bothered to read ‘Das Kapital’? Communist Manifesto? Any of Marx’s commentaries on Hegel?

    Thirdly, are you even educated enough to tell me, clearly and concisely, what’s wrong with Communism?

    I know I can. How about you?

    DeathKnyte

    maybe a quick recap of [your post]?

    Oh, all right.

    Basically it was like this. Woody posted some crap about how the MSM was aiding and abetting terrorist guerilla’s in Iraq by not devoting every available column inch to gushing accounts of Jarheads handing out sweets to prepubescent amputees, culminating in this cosmically dense bit of buffoonery:

    I’m no lawyer, but it seems like there is a case to be made here. The first paragraph perfectly describes what the MSM/DNC cabal has been doing for five years, willfully conveying false reports (literally) to interfere with our success and promote the success of our enemy. Katie Couric, Charlie Gibson, Dan Rather, Chris Matthews… they all do this by deliberately ignoring any good news or victory and focusing and blowing out of proportion any bad news or failure.

    Woody ignores two pertinent points, here. Firstly, he neglects the fact that Liberalism is a set of beliefs and agenda’s and isn’t defined negatively in the absence of his personal comfort level of ditto-monkey talking points. Consequently, stories covering the carnage in Iraq are not, in and of themselves, de facto demonstrations of ‘liberal’ bias.

    Secondly, he fails to factor in the numerous past occasions when the MSM acted as little more than Republican Stenographers, dutifully peddling the party line in flagrant defiance of known facts. Social scientists refer to this selective retention as ‘Confirmation bias’. I prefer to call it ‘Being a fucking moron’.

    The specific example I used to illustrate my points concerned the New York Times’ handling of the ‘Aluminum Tubes’ scandal. As you may remember, the New York Times loudly trumpeted the existence of these tubes as proof positive that Saddam Hussein was, as the Bush Administration had previously asserted, attempting to construct a nuclear centrifuge. The Bush Administration then lauded the ‘Liberal’ New York Times for its splendid journalistic prowess in bringing this story to national attention. It then came to light that not only were the tubes completely unsuitable for use in nuclear centrifuges but that the NYT’s sources for the story were all intimately connected to the Bush Administration.

    I then said that this was just one example of a great many particularly egregious abdications of journalistic responsibility by so-called ‘Liberal Media’ outlets. Then Woody deleted my post.

    I have read the Communist Manifesto…come to think of it just check out the ACLU…and what they believe. Save yourself the trouble. What communism does is simply deny basic human nature, especially the negative aspects. But all the arguments aside, in my experience it boils down to is what people have to say…people that LIVED under those regimes. Say….Solzhenitsyn and The Gulag Archipelago. People die seeking to leave these countries, conversely, people die trying to enter America. Some here at this site have lived under those regimes and passionatly hate what communism has done. Or faced them across the line, guns at the ready. I have never lived in such an environment. My experience during some global travels many years ago indicated that communism simply destroyed the human spirit, the ancillary effects rendered clear in the economic, social and environmental destruction that resulted. A plain simple observation, hopelessness a common theme, oppression and fear constant bedfellows. So I seek out those having been there and known personally what it was like. No amount of reading, education or pontificating remain a viable substitute. I believe in the right to self-protection, I own a gun, I believe in God and the right to worship as I choose, I also belive in the people that fled and came here. For as was once said about those that came West here in America…the weak died on the way, the cowards never tried…you get the idea. I often wonder how soem of these lefty college professon would react to being told they had to teach Islam to their students? I thought they didn’t believe in God, or was it simply a Christian God. We would soon find out. Or how some of the radical feminists would react to Muslim law? I’ve mixed it up with enough of them. I no longer bother. As I say, I listen to those having been there……..they remain the most credible.

    Woody ignores two pertinent points, here. Firstly, he neglects the fact that Liberalism is a set of beliefs and agenda’s and isn’t defined negatively in the absence of his personal comfort level of ditto-monkey talking points.

    And you neglected that “firstly” probably isn’t a real word. And that Liberalism is an ideology that purports to liberate people from oppressive situations. How does that fit into opposing actually liberating people and giving them the ability to express themselves through a franchise? Can you point to modern welfare-state liberalism helped the people of Iraq and Afghanistan more than conservative direct action?

    Consequently, stories covering the carnage in Iraq are not, in and of themselves, de facto demonstrations of ‘liberal’ bias.

    No, but endless stories of death and carnage to the almost complete exclusion of more positive things happening in the theater is an indication of bias in the media. Need I remind you that many of the people posting here are veterans of Desert Storm, Operation Anaconda, Operation Iraqi Freedom or ALL THREE? If you are not willing to consider that our collective experience does not jive with the media’s outlook, then may I suggest that you read this study about press bias from UCLA?

    Secondly, he fails to factor in the numerous past occasions when the MSM acted as little more than Republican Stenographers, dutifully peddling the party line in flagrant defiance of known facts. Social scientists refer to this selective retention as ‘Confirmation bias’. I prefer to call it ‘Being a fucking moron’.

    ANd I prefer to think of social “scientists”, especially those who are willfully ignorant of real science that explodes their notions about media being biased towards conservatives “over-educated fucking morons”. Yeah, I called you childish.

    Please don’t cry on me Mr. Lindberg.

    The specific example I used to illustrate my points concerned the New York Times’ handling of the ‘Aluminum Tubes’ scandal. As you may remember, the New York Times loudly trumpeted the existence of these tubes as proof positive that Saddam Hussein was, as the Bush Administration had previously asserted, attempting to construct a nuclear centrifuge.

It then came to light that not only were the tubes completely unsuitable for use in nuclear centrifuges but that the NYT’s sources for the story were all intimately connected to the Bush Administration.

    Are you seriously suggesting that the NYT is a conservative cheer rag because they were mistaken, along with the rest of the world, on the nature of the WMD program in Iraq? Interesting that you would put one anecdotal occurance down as proof of your ignorant notion that the NYT is conservative. Read this:

    An additional feature of the study shows how each outlet compares in political orientation with actual lawmakers. The news pages of The Wall Street Journal scored a little to the left of the average American Democrat, as determined by the average ADA score of all Democrats in Congress (85 versus 84). With scores in the mid-70s, CBS’ “Evening News” and The New York Times looked similar to Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., who has an ADA score of 74.

    Ignorance does not become a supercilious cunt.

    I then said that this was just one example of a great many particularly egregious abdications of journalistic responsibility by so-called ‘Liberal Media’ outlets. Then Woody deleted my post.

    I’ve kicked your karma rating up now once I noticed the problem, so you shouldn’t have any problems from here on out. If you do, please let me know so I can correct it ASAP.

    I’ll get back to your post tomorrow.

    I hold the brave men and women of our armed services in the highest esteem and defy you to find anything I’ve written which suggests otherwise.

    And I defy YOU to prove that you do not approve of the press deliberately releasing information harmful to our troops. Considering that you are so quick to defend the fifth columnist fourth estate.

    How about this: the actions of the LA Times and other newspapers that published details of our defenses agains IEDs is despicable AND counts as sedition under the constitutional test of “giving aid and comfort to the enemy”.

    Your defense of this seditionist garbage that has demonstratably damaged our mission in Iraq AND most likely caused deaths and maimings of our troops in the field makes your feelings plain about the troops.

    You know, the ones you hold in such high regard.

    You can’t have it both ways. Either you approve of the biased (as I have proven in an earlier post) mediots hurting and killing our troops or you do not. YOu are not Bill Clinton, and cannot make simultaneous differing arguments at the same time with any degree of skill that he does.

    Which just about shows where your sympathies lie, don’t they?

    Consider yourself defied, chump.

    Bah! The whining libtard got pouty because he was told that his verbal droppings were utter nonsense.

    The little commie bitch also has a hell of a persecution complex. Those mean old right-winger bullies, squishing his precious “dissent” on their sites! I swear, he acts just like an uninvited guest at a party who shits on the rug, barfs in the punch bowl, then gets indignant when the maid cleans it up and the butler throws his sorry ass out.

    Has it ever occurred to Dirty Sanchez, in his feeble little chicken-brain that he is flattering himself by thinking everyone is out to get him? Truth is, Dirty Sanchez, nobody cares. It’s as simple as that. Now, go dance in the streets and chant some slogans, it will make you feel better. Wanker.

    Er, I thought that I was going to get back to your post, but the Ref has left precious little for me to chew on.

    Besides, the whole point of Woody’s post and mine was the simple question: Is or isn’t providing the enemy with information helping them to kill our soldiers treason/sedition?

    The answer to that one ought to be pretty simple for sentient beings.

  47. LC Woody Comment by LC Woody UNITED STATES

    Yes, Misha you are correct. Let’s not miss the point.

    The LA Times was way out of line here, but other MSM/DNC cabal members tip toe across the line all the time. The cumulative effect of all this deception is a sapping of the national will.

    FDR said it best:

    “[…] there is an added technique for weakening a nation at its very roots, for disrupting the entire pattern of life of a people. And it is important that we understand it.

    The method is simple. It is, first, discord, a dissemination of discord. A group –not too large — a group that may be sectional or racial or political — is encouraged to exploit (their) its prejudices through false slogans and emotional appeals. The aim of those who deliberately egg on these groups is to create confusion of counsel, public indecision, political paralysis and eventually, a state of panic.

    Sound national policies come to be viewed with a new and unreasoning skepticism, not through the wholesome (political) debates of honest and free men, but through the clever schemes of foreign agents.

    As a result of these new techniques, armament programs may be dangerously delayed. Singleness of national purpose may be undermined. Men can lose confidence in each other, and therefore lose confidence in the efficacy of their own united action. Faith and courage can yield to doubt and fear. The unity of the state (is) can be so sapped that its strength is destroyed.”

    He was speaking about WWII of course, but history has a way of repeating itself. This is essentially what the MSM/DNC cabal has been engaged in for the last five years.

    …but history has a way of repeating itself

    LC Woody, you just said a mouth full. We’re seeing lying media, wobbly-kneed congress people, filthy hippy protestors; all undermining our efforts and giving succor to the enemy. The spitters can’t be far away. Sheesh, at times I feel like I’ve jumped in Dr. Emmett Brown’s Bricklin and ended up back in 1970.
