High-ranking CBS staffer calls for destruction of Republican party

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?

  1. There’s nothing more to be done about the fabulists of the Mainstream Media, which are now openly partisan and ideological. They’ve chosen their sleping arrangements; if falls to us to seek out other sources of edification.

    It’s interesting that the “most extreme elements” of the Republican party today would have been considered socialists in 1960, but the mainstream of the Democrap party would have been arrested, tried and convicted of treason for being anti-American Marxists/communists in the same time period.

    Which basically means that both parties have moved leftward, but the Republicans only so-so, while the hijacked Democrap party has become a real party of extremists.

    And the extremists running that party know it, hence, use the Alinsky tactic of accusing the opposition of exactly what they themselves are: extremists.

  3. I have a better idea: How about the destruction of CBS, as in Communist Bull S*it?

    We no longer watch anything on CBS, NBC, ABC. We watch Nat Geo, Discovery, etc. BBS slips in a lot of propaganda so you have to take some of their stuff with a grain of salt. We watch way less TV now and we are better for it.

    Sister, thanks for this. As the elite machine gears up for their clearly planned demonization of the NRA (life member here), it’s great to see something that basically tells us which way the water is gonna flow during the next four (scratch that – two) years. We have to prepare for a big, dirty fight. And it’s clear that there’s no turning back for anybody now. I fear for this country, but not for freedom.

    Could I ask a favor? Not sure how you feel about Google, but I’ve been sticking to Google Plus as my social breadcrumb trail, after dealing with Facebook’s stealthy work to *change* society by messing with pro-gun groups, etc. So, if you could add a Google Plus widget, I’d by happy to link to your stuff in the Google Plus world.

    Thanks, and God Bless! -Wolf

    Thank you Drew! Well stated! Clearly, we are reaching FASCISM because now any voice that is not compliant will be silenced one way or the other. It’s beyond rational yet, we now have so many Americans willing to sign over their freedoms and LIBERTY for government handouts, subsidies, protection, and care. How so-called intelligent people can blindly follow a government so obviously grown beyond the norm, full of corruption on every level, with politicians more faithful to lobbyists than to the people–who pass laws for the masses and opt out of them–and hanging onto a thread financially due to massive regulations, massive spending, outrageous deals & payoffs to cronies, and a president who has expanded his power under the Affordable Health Care Reform Law–which is neither affordable nor it is in any way REFORM–to dictatorship levels, by controlling the entire health care industry & medical field which will eventually dictate who has access and who does not. I have seen things I never imagined… and my neighbors are perfectly content with what’s going on. I wonder if there were Jewish people in Germany during the 1930s who saw the disaster ahead and tried to warn people? They were probably denounced and demonized just like today’s conservatives—and let me reassure you, not all Republicans are Conservatives. God help us all!

    Brontefan – at this point, I’m fairly certain that Obamacare / Gun Control was a carefully devised 8-year plan. This explains why they pushed so hard for Obamacare in the first four years, and ignored the stuff that truly needed to be fixed. If we go back and look now, I’m sure there will be all sorts of Easter eggs in Obamacare that support disarmament by mental health.

    The trouble is, they couldn’t wait for Obama’s inauguration to start the gun-control thing. I think that Sandy Hook was just too much of a “gift” for gun control – they simply had to take the bait. If there was any good to come out of that horrible tragedy, it’s the fact that Obama can no longer nuance his way out of the fact that he was going against his own word not to grab guns. The designs of the Democrats are completely naked at this point.

    My mom was in Germany under Hitler (she was half-American), and yes – there were lots of Jews who tried to warn both Germans and the world. Many who could see it coming were like my great-aunt’s lover, who felt there was nothing to do but run. He fled the country before it was too late – he survived the war. Some tried to fight – most of them died, but a few survived, like a prof I had. We have to learn from their mistakes. Any resort to violence while the fascists still control the media will basically boomerang. Jews who did things like violently protest or attack Nazis were used as propaganda to support tighter controls. This is why Ted Nugent is so spot-on with his statement about going to jail – and why he assiduously avoids talk about shooting back. In the early part of the resistance, it’s imperative not to give them propaganda ammunition. But at the same time, it’s also critical not to let them deplete our capability of real ammunition to resist later.

    Never let them demonize you. If you know in your heart that you’re part of the resistance, no amount of smearing and denigrating will work. Look in the mirror and ask yourself: when it’s all over, were you part of the resistance, or part of the ones who went along with things that you know in your heart are wrong? That’s the key. Resist non-violently until good people are dying and everybody knows it. That’s when we reach for the guns.

    Don’t shoot until you see the red of their fangs.

    In my opinion, we need to expect take-downs of nasty militias very soon, which they will try to link hard to the NRA and the rest of us. The Obamoids need political fodder for their machine. We need to be ready to question their narrative, but not allow ourselves to be forced into unholy defense of the nasty people they want to smear us with. Remember – WE are the NRA. The people they are going to take down soon are scum. They will try to link us, and we have to be ready to take the Dems to task for it.

    Think of the world as a stage and an audience, and most people are too afraid to jump on the stage with us. There will be a lot of people who *seem* not to be on our side, but don’t believe it. Over half of America will be with us. Plus a lot of the rest of the world. You’ll see.

    We are so sick of the mainsteam news media…thank goodness for other outlets. We must keep putting this information out there! Thank you!

  9. Liz says:

    Spread the news! We need to tell establishments who play TV, ” CBS has called for the destruction of the Republican party and I hope you will no longer play this statio in your establishment.” If I had money I put an ad in the Wall Street Journal!

  10. Slow POKEY says:

    Ben Shapiro wrote a book called “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans.” it’s dead on. Put it in your search engine.

  11. Carlos says:

    @Wolf Moon: Linking us to the paramilitary neo-fascists will be like linking Obhammed to Stalin and Mao.

    Oh, wait. That’s a much better and provable connection. Not only that, but his ideology is miles closer to that of the neo-fascists than it is to the long-gone traditional Democrap platform.

    It’s too bad his millions of voters can’t connect those dots, or are too young to believe the atrocities committed by every communist regime in history. Obhammed rails against our history because it includes slavery and near annihilation of the Native American, but nothing in our history compares to the bloodbaths committed in the name of the state in Russia, Communist China or in Pol Pot Cambodia, and those are the kinds of states Dear Leader is pushing us toward as hard as he can with, of course, his cheerleaders in the LSM.

    Wow! A Liberal calling for the violent destruction of a group with an opposing point of view! Who could have seen that coming?
