One month after the November 2004 presidential election, the George Soros funded, loony, left-wing group MoveOn.org sent a declaration to the Democratic Party: “In the last year, grassroots contributors like us gave more than $300 million to the Kerry campaign and the DNC, and proved that the Party doesn’t need corporate cash to be competitive. Now it’s our Party: we bought it, we own it, and we’re going to take it back.”
Yesterday, MoveOn.org showed the Democrats they were not kidding. Armed with an online petition of some 265,000 web-addicted idiots, this lunatic fringe of Stalinists ordered the Nevada Democratic Party to cancel the August 14th presidential debate in Reno that was to be hosted by FOX News Channel, FOX News Radio, the Western Majority Project, and the Nevada State Democratic Party. Unsurprisingly to anyone who follows politics in the slightest, the Democrats caved, posting an excuse so lame it would be hilarious if the matter were not so serious.
After the Nevada Democratic Party announced they would host a 2008 presidential debate, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), mistakenly believing he was the boss of the Democratic Party, said, “This is more great news for Nevada. I’m happy FOX News will be a partner for the August presidential debate. Western issues will be a major focus of this debate in particular. With FOX News as our partner, candidates will have an opportunity to not only speak to Nevada voters, but voters across the West who will be instrumental to electing a Democratic president in 2008.”
Obviously Sen. Reid spoke out of turn and failed to obtain a permission slip from MoveOn.org to make that statement. For no sooner had the Nevada State Democratic Party proudly announced the debate posting it on their web site with the praising endorsement of Sen. Harry Reid, when MoveOn.org rang the alarm and a cadre of socialist misfits, pony-tailed Kabballah-loving hippie rejects, and empty headed moonbats answered the call and flooded the Nevada Democratic Party with demands to reject FOX News from hosting the debate.
Nevada Democrats held out for a few days until the swelling tide of angry hard-core liberals overwhelmed them. Frantically searching for an excuse to cancel the debate, they latched onto a joke made by FOX News Channel chairman Roger Ailes during his acceptance speech at the 2007 RTNDF 1st Amendment Awards banquet. The joke was the sixth and last in a brief series of political one-liners in which Ailes, poking fun at President Bush, said, “And it is true that Barack Obama is on the move. I don’t know if it’s true that President Bush called Musharraf and said, ‘Why can’t we catch this guy?’
Like Larry the Cable Guy says, “I don’t care who you are. That’s funny.” It was also the life preserver, albeit soggy, rotten and full of holes, but the Nevada Democrats grabbed onto it like it was the last lifeboat on the Titanic. “We cannot, as good Democrats, put our party in a position to defend such comments,” the letter said. “In light of his comments, we have concluded that it is not possible to hold a presidential debate that will focus on our candidates and are therefore cancelling our August debate. We take no pleasure in this, but it is the only course of action.”
Translated into simple English, that statement means (1) MoveOn.org controls the Democratic Party, (2) Democrats know that MoveOn.org controls the Democratic Party, (3) MoveOn.org is Stalinist in nature by dictating which media outlets are allowed to broadcast, and lastly (4) MoveOn.org is so pathetically immature and insecure that the very thought of having a conservative leaning network host a Democratic presidential debate would be a torture akin to Hell itself. That analogy is probably incorrect due to the fact that for so many liberals the religion of global warming is their faith and for those liberals who do profess a belief in the Almighty, they are already convinced they are living in Hell as long as George Bush is president.
For five years now, FOX News Channel hs been the most watched cable news channel in the nation and currently presents 9 out of the top 10 programs in cable news. Therefore it is not difficult to understand the frenzy and derangement that drives this looney element. The March 10, 2007 editorial from the Las Vegas Review Journal capsulizes, “This hyperventilation results from the fact that far-left Democrats have no comparable media outlet, nor any widespread national appeal, for their radical views in favor of heavy-handed regulation, wealth redistribution, diplomatic capitulation and economic protectionism. So they attack their rivals’ messenger with a reckless barrage of rhetoric that cuts down their own allies with friendly fire.”
If I were Senator Harry Reid or Representative Nancy Pelosi, I might begin to feel like Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto in the movie, “Tora, Tora, Tora”. Upon reflection after the successful Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Yamamoto says, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” Is MoveOn.org the Democrat’s awoken sleeping giant?
