So sick and tired of the hate.

I don’t like continually harping on this subject, but honestly, people, can we please have a return to common courtesy? The mainstream media continues to denigrate last week’s Restoring Honor rally and conservatives and, yes, Fox News. They seem to be incredibly disappointed that the rally wasn’t the violent, hate-filled, racist event they predicted.

At the liberal web news site, the Huffington Post, they posted a group of photos from the event which they labeled “The Most Ridiculous Messages”. Oddly enough, one of the messages they found ridiculous was a quote from GEORGE WASHINGTON!!! And it’s also apparently ridiculous to be a flag-waving American. Well, you know what? I’m proud to be an American and I’m proud to wave our flag! And sure, the people at the HuffPo are entitled to their opinion. But why do all the liberals feel compelled to demand that Fox News be taken off the air because “they’re too prejudiced”. Gee, maybe they’re slanted towards the Right because all the other news services are every bit as prejudiced in favor of the Left. And you don’t see the rest of us demanding that MSNBC, CNN and the major networks have their licenses revoked.

I’ll admit I’ve been somewhat guilty of being politically apathetic. I always vote, sure, but beyond that I’ve never thought much about politics. But if I can calmly and POLITELY discuss my beliefs and feelings with my liberal friends, it seems to me the least the media could do is attempt to do the same.

But wait. That wouldn’t garner as much ratings, would it? (Ooo, that was catty. Sorry. I’m not perfect. And neither is the liberal media, despite their opinion to the contrary.)
