New York Times' Preemptive Strike On Obama Critic
While with one hand the media launches these campaigns to intimidate private citizens into not criticizing Their Precious One and on the other hand the same media savages Mormonism, reads Romney's "homophobic" high school mind from a half-century ago, and vets Ann Romney's horses -- the media is also working and plotting and planning together in obvious coordination with the Obama campaign to protect Barack Obama from free political speech that might harm his reelection chances.The attack on Joe Ricketts was thuggery, pure this:That's a nice business you got there. Would be a shame if anything happened to it.And in today's story featuring Jesse Jackson's Freudian slip, we learn that this media/Obama coordinated bullying has extended all the way to Ricketts' son:Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts is reaching out to black politicians and community leaders to try and control the political damage caused by his father’s involvement in a conservative super PAC that considered attacking President Barack Obama by using the fiery sermons of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.Ricketts’ explanation to the City Council’s 19 black aldermen and to the Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. is similar to what the Cubs chairman told the Chicago Sun-Times.Neither he nor any member of the Ricketts family would condone “racially-insensitive” attack ads against Obama. And the proposed ad campaign — since disavowed by family patriarch Joe Ricketts — should not stand in the way of an elusive, $300 million plan to renovate Wrigley Field.The bigger picture is the message Obama's Media Palace Guards are sending out the entire super PAC world: What happened to Ricketts can happen to you.
