US media, please stop calling the MAGA crowd conservatives
They may be Republicans but... they are NOT conservative
Like most Americans, I hung on every word of President Zelenskyy's speech to US Congress yesterday. News channels of repute, all paid attention just as closely and reported as true journalists. Then there was the Fox News Media, Breitbart News Network, Newsmax Media, Inc. and similar crowd. For your convenience, I’ve included media assessments for each at the embedded links. They are short and I’d be grateful if anyone would read them… carefully.
Republican news sites either ignored, paid scant attention or preferred to push Russian news. Yes, you read that correctly. This is proof of just how pervasive the MAGA crowd is within the Republican National Committee. In fact, they are the controlling faction.
For the record, I will categorically state that this is a national security threat of the highest order. It is literally offering aid and comfort to the enemy. The named networks and their peers are not principled conservatives. Being a Republican is not the same as a principled conservative. Full stop!
Putin is a thug and war criminal with few earthly peers. He's committing cultural genocide against our ally Ukraine, in a soulless and sadistic manner. This matches what Stalin and the Soviets did in the 1930s in what is called the Holodomor. In other words, Stalin intentionally starved at least, 4 million Ukrainians to death for daring to maintain their Ukrainian identity. If any American cannot be supportive, or at least argue a well-supported, fact-based rebuttal, they have lost all privileges to be called a patriotic American. Our heritage and certainly our identity, is wrapped up in defending freedom from oppression.
This post is NOT political. Principled conservatives who remain in the party, those who've left or spoken out against Putin's Russia still have patriotic rights. This excludes the MAGA crowd. Only the party can reform itself from an extremist organization into a party again.
See what I mean regarding these propaganda sites masquerading as news sites, with the following links:
America needs well-informed citizens from all sorts of perspectives. That how democracy works best. At the moment, the Republican party, one of only two, major parties, fails this litmus test in every possible way.
Patriotism is easy to understand for those not seduced by propaganda and fake patriots. It's written into our founding documents. Wouldn't it be great if responsible media stopped calling all Republicans... conservatives. It would be far more honest!
