The Obama Administration apparatchiks at TIME Ragazine are making Goebbels proud again with its choice of “The Protestor” as its 2011 person of the year.
Last week TIME named “Occupy Wall Street” the #1 story of the year, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise. The vast majority of Americans could care less about the Occupiers or the Arab Spring. The former they detest, the latter they fear.
But not TIME. Not Democrats. They think their support for both bowel movements will keep them occupying the White House.
Ed Morrissey at Hotair astutely points out TIME’s hypocrisy.
In 2009, Time had the same opportunity to pick “the protester” when the protests were the Tea Party and Iran’s Green Revolution, which followed from Ukraine’s Orange Revolution, and so on. Who did they pick? Ben Bernanke. When the Tea Party movement actually delivered results at the ballot box in 2010 in a historic midterm drubbing of Barack Obama’s Democrats — they lost 68 seats, the worst outing since 1938 — they could have hailed The Protester then, too. Who did they pick? Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
For TIME and Liberals, the only legitimate protestors are those who protest in the name of Leftwing causes. Those who stand up for life and liberty, is anathema to them.
The Japanese tsunami should have been the 2011 story of the year.
Those individuals who rushed into Joplin, MO, after the devastating tornadoes are far more deserving to be the ‘person of the year’ than a bunch of radicals, be they Leftist or Islamic.
But TIME would never point out the good in America. Because for Liberals, socialists, and Marxists, good can only be accomplished through the State.
