The “enemy of the American people.”


President Trump tweeted that the news media “is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

Good God! One would have thought it was December 7, 1941 again from the reaction of the lame-stream media. They nearly claimed it was another day “that would live in infamy.” They certainly did not hold back from their usual comparisons to Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Mussolini. Of course, their favorite appellation, “fascist,” was also tossed around.

The media have yet to learn that our new president does not shy away from a fight. They also need to learn that they are remarkably one-sided in their criticisms. Let’s take a walk own memory lane.

Back in 2010, Obama blurted out a telling insight into his personal views on how to deal with his political adversaries: “We’re gonna punish our enemies, and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us…” Did you hear the hew and cry from the media for his choice of words? I didn’t either!

Perhaps you recall that during the first Democratic presidential debate, Hillary Clinton was asked “Which enemy are you most proud of?” and she replied, “Well, in addition to the NRA, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the Iranians? Probably the Republicans.” So, Mrs. Clinton compared Republicans (that would be me) to true enemies – state sponsors of terrorism – actually the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism. Time for the media to start calling her Mrs. Stalin, etc, etc. You remember the outrage from the media. Don’t you? Me either. I never heard a word – but did hear a lot of chuckling.

Secretary of State Clinton compared ME to a regime that took dozens of our diplomats hostage for more than a year, help to kill numerous US service personnel fighting in Iraq, and who is responsible for countless terrorist attacks that have killed hundreds of Americans. Of course, you remember the outrage of the press for this heartless comment. No? ME EITHER!

Maybe Trump’s tweet was ill advised, but it was closer to “true” than to “false.”

    Anyone who is in favor of the H1-B Visa program is an enemy of the Untied States.

    See? It works both ways. 😉
