Orlando Murders Demonstrates Our Media’s Continuing Failure

Most news outlets are calling the Orlando murders “Mass Shooting” and some even admit that it’s terrorism.  Unfortunately,  everyone seems to be afraid to call it whatit really is – religious extremism.  This is the same kind of extremism we witness regularly by our religious right murdering doctors and clinic employees and patients.

You see the media being so very careful to state ISIS when referring to radical extremism, so careful not to offend the American terrorists.

Just like other mental problems,  America can only begin to recover from our extremism when we are willing to admit that we have a problem with our own conservative extremism, religious and political.

The media is the only mechanism we have for facing the facts but we can’t when they hide the facts from us.

America needs an overhaul of our failed media.

What’s Next, Hillary Clinton?

The big mistake the Democratic politicians have been making for the past 30 years, the big reason Democrats are sick of voting for them, is that they campaign to the base (the Progressives) in the primary election and then move to the center to try to get the moderate voters in the general election.

How has this worked for the Democrats? I’ll tell you how. It’s pissing off the Democratic voters enough that they are leaving. Why is the Democratic part so ignorant that they can’t see this?

So, now Hillary says she has the primary election all wrapped up and she and Obama are saying it’s time for the rest of the party to come over to her side.

Here’s what I say about that. Bullshit! Those who aren’t voting for Hillary think she’s just another Republican. As she moves more to the right to foolishly try to catch the moderate voters, she will be further abandoning the real Democrats on the left.

Why should any of us come to the Republican side and vote for Hillary while she moves further and further into Republican territory?

We won’t! If Hillary wants the Democratic voters to vote for her, and not just the moderates, then she will have to move further into the Democratic camp, not further into the Republican camp.

Why is there even the slightest chance that a Republican idiot like Trump could get elected president? Because the Democrats are sick of their party moving further and further into the conservative crazy train. We are sick of voting for Republican lite politicians. We’re sick of voting for someone who says one thing in the primary and then moves into the enemy camp for the general election.

Hey, Hillary, if you don’t want your base, the Sanders supporters to stay home on election day, give us a Democrat to vote for, not just another Republican.
