"Disinformation Without Challenge??"
So claims Carol Towarnicky in today's version of her perversely-named "The Common Good" column in the Daily News.
Her column starts off not to praise Jerry Falwell, but to bury him. I really didn't support Falwell and have no opinion, good or bad, about him. It rapidly spins out of control from there:
In the middle of Ronald Reagan's first term: Rush Limbaugh was just beginning his national radio career and his imitators on conservative talk radio had yet to turn on their microphones to broadcast disinformation without challenge.
Disinformation without challenge?? WTF do you call NPR? That's government-backed disinformation! What about the visual aspect of our broadcast media?? SeeBS? CeeNoNews?? MSMSNBC, in all its various forms??
This is then followed by an even more obscenely-humorous charge:
Yet last weekend, unannounced Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich exhorted the graduates of Falwell's Liberty University to continue the fight against "radical secularism," that is, apparently, a government that adheres to the First Amendment.
No, Carol, a government that adheres to the First Amendment would allow the use of the word God in the public venue. It would allow creches and menorahs to be displayed, side-by-side, in the appropriate season without a lawsuit from the "radically secular" ACLU!
For the uninformed, like most Dumb-o-crats, the First Amendment simultaneously provides for the free expression of religious beliefs, while prohibiting the government from being ruled by only one religious faith or belief system. It is only over the years that the "radically secular" liberals have perverted the First Amendment to quash any and all expression or utterance of the word God in public.
Next time, get your head out of your ass and get your facts straight!
