High-ranking CBS staffer calls for destruction of Republican party

**Posted by Phineas

Well, at least he’s being honest about his biases:

The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat.


Obama’s only remaining option is to pulverize. Whether he succeeds in passing legislation or not, given his ambitions, his goal should be to delegitimize his opponents. Through a series of clarifying fights over controversial issues, he can force Republicans to either side with their coalition’s most extreme elements or cause a rift in the party that will leave it, at least temporarily, in disarray.

New tone?

That’s John Dickerson writing at Slate.  But he’s not just a frothing, nigh-ecstatic fan of Obama writing for a lefty web-zine.  As John Nolte points out at Breitbart, he’s also CBS’ political director:

Dickerson is merely being Dickerson, and  there’s no doubt he speaks for legions upon legions of those in the media today.

What is worthy of note, though, is that a CBS News’ political director is now comfortable openly calling for the destruction of the Republican Party. He obviously fears no admonitions from his colleagues or his employer. And why should he? Earlier this week, Bob Schieffer, a CBS News “living legend,” was perfectly comfortable publicly comparing the NRA to Nazis.

Ladies and gentlemen, your neutral, thoughtful Fourth Estate.

“Media bias?” What’s that?

Disturbing: Latest Newsweek cover features Obama w/ the caption: “Second Coming”

Wow, Newsweek sure isn’t doing themselves – nor their fellow cultish Obama worshippers – any favors by continuing to expose (collectively) their disturbing tendency to view our celebrity President as though he is God.

Newsweek's Obama cover

‘Second Coming’? I don’t think so.

Via Twitchy Team, which writes:

First the angel Obama-el got his gay-lo from Newsweek, and now, in the creepy 2013 Inauguration issue, he’s the second coming.

Framing President Obama as our lord and savior isn’t surprising. We’re more shocked by the news that Newsweek still has covers after killing its print publication. But that doesn’t make it any less creepy and cult-like.


Like I’ve said before, to many liberals government=God, and via extension a “hip” and “cool” Democrat President like Barack Obama (and Bill Clinton fit the mold, also) is their Lord and Savior and “He” is righteous and mighty and must be obeyed:

Then again, what do you expect from people who by and large view government aka Uncle Sam as God and your private religious beliefs that are supposed to be guaranteed under the US Constitution as secondary to what the their government god mandates?

Of course, even though Clinton is like Obama in this regard, Obama’s taken it several steps further. Both he and his wife made sure to paint him in a “God-like” light (“planet begins to heal“, “Obama is the only one who can heal this nation and fix our souls“) during his first campaign for President, and it’s a meme they have continued to operate under since then. Why not? It’s worked so well for them to this point. Why stop a “good” thing, especially when it helps get you elected to not just one term in the White House but two?

Our culture continues to rot from the inside out, and this Newsweek cover is just one of many real-time examples of the rot in progress. No person, no media outlet, no one at all should ever view a public servant as God or anything similar. Not even we Reagan afficionados view “The Gipper” in the mindless, bot-like way so many Obama fanatics look at “The One.” It’s a deeply disturbing mindset, and one that needs to be called out and called out loudly whenever the opportunity presents itself. Now is one of those times.
