Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
The Liberal (a/k/a Progressive) is always preaching “diversity”, but deep down they really don't want everyone to just look different, they really want everyone to think like they do. They are the chief proponents of “political correctness”, who will determine what you can say or do, and will have the unelected P.C. Police “sworn in” to carry out their destructive attempt at conformity.
When a liberal is offended by what is said or done, he/she doesn't just complain or offer an opposing view, they want their “pound of flesh” by calling for for that person or group to be fired, and if that offending person is in the media, they want his advertising sponsors to boycott the “offender” to further their desire for compliance to the liberal orthodoxy. How divisive and exclusive are those tactics?
This “modus operandi” is almost the sole provenance of the liberal left against conservatives or conservative thought. Just recently, the liberal left “attack dogs” have put Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh etc., in their “boycott” cross hairs.
In previous years, the “tolerant” left has also used similar tactics against Bill O'Reilly and Dr. Laura, with some success. It seems that since they couldn't confront their adversaries by using debate and alternate facts, they wanted to shut them up permanently, regardless of the human toll on their opponents and their families.
The liberals have been notoriously unsuccessful in challenging conservatives in the arena of ideas, as in talk radio and T.V. and in newsprint. The ratings overwhelmingly favor the conservatives which I'm sure drives the liberals crazy. Instead of having their message geared to gain support of the voting public, all they try to do is to try to marginalize the opposition by a constant barrage of biased, made up stories (fake news) trying to tear down those who have the audacity to have a different opinion(s) than their own.
Most all successful talk shows on T.V. or the radio are conservative. Very few, if any, liberal shows are rated as successful as the conservative shows. The ratings overwhelmingly favor the
conservative shows by a wide margin. Conservative pundits like Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, and Fox shows, “Fox and Friends” and “The Five”, have all outdistanced their liberal counterparts in the ratings. CNN and MSNBC are way down in the ratings as opposed to Fox News. Even the late night T.V. shows have seen a decline in their audiences due to their constant haranguing of President Trump and the Republicans. By constantly trashing the president, the 50% of the electorate who support the president, tune out these shows as a result. Previous late night hosts like Johnny Carson and Jay Leno were equal opportunity comedians who lampooned liberals and conservatives alike, and it was done in jest, not in venom which the preset hosts now indulge in on an almost nightly basis. I guess you could say, “If you live by the sword, you'll die by the sword”.
So, diversity in looks and thoughts should be the rule, not the exception, if we want to live in a civilized society.
