Ollie North, And The Tards
Ollie North, writing at RedStateUSA.com, has established that the Mainstream Media, the MSM, the purveyors of more misinformation than you ever want to hear, are following well established traditions.|
Go read his article. He makes some good points. I'm not going to detract from his points by repeating them here. I just wanted to add this little tidbit.
Above I used the phrase 'well established traditions'. This type of publication does indeed have a tradition, by now, of skewed reporting. Interestingly, today I ran across a comment to a post wherein the commenter mispelled tradition as 'tardition'. At the instant I read that, it hit me... these media organizations are tards!
If you have spent much time on the net, then surely you have run across the word 'tard' prior to this. Originally typed as 'tard, it was short for retard, but has now come to mean a stupid person, a clueless person, an annoying person... just about anything you want it to mean, as long as it is said in a derogatory manner. Many times a modifier will be stuck on the front end, a common result being f**ktard, a REALLY stupid AND annoying person. Or organization.
Time Magazine, New York Times... publishing classified materials: Tards!
Newsweek publishing Koran story: Tards!
Rep Dennis Kucunich demanding we 'Bring the troops home': Tard!
Sen. Dickie Dustbin comparing U.S. Military to Nazis, etc.: Tard!
Those lefty people who do not listen to logic and reason: Tards!
(They already have a name for those on the right that behave the same way: Right Wing Nuts)
Yeah, I know it sounds like name-calling, but I prefer to think of it as a description instead. I could go on and on and on... but it's bedtime for me. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!
Again, go read Col. North's article. And thanks to Free Republic for the initial link.
(FYI only: tardition, misspelling of tradition, commenter Tiredofl Iberals in this post:
You are, in part, correct that the appeal to tradition (or "prejudice" as Burke would call it) was an important part of the reason why many on the libertarian right, including folks like Glenn Reynolds believed that Congress overstepped its bounds.
This part means nothing, unless you wanted to know where I got it, so disregard subject.)
