Another Day Of Infamy: ABC’s Diane Sawyer And Vile Leftwing Pseudo-News Propaganda

ABC’s Sawyer Says Palin “Targeted” Gabby Giffords In Special On Congresswoman
Posted on November 15, 2011

In an hour-long special on Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Arizona) and her miraculous recovery, ABC’s Diane Sawyer ruined it in a segment about the Congresswoman’s political future.

Sawyer praised the Congresswoman as being “upbeat” during the “unsettling” 2010 campaign season in which she received “vitriol” from her constituents. Sawyer then linked these events to someone shooting her office door while including a sound of a gun being shot. Continuing, Sawyer says Giffords was “targeted” by Sarah Palin. Cue video of Palin speaking and the ad which had a cross-hair on Giffords’ district. Transcript below:

DIANE SAWYER: “So does Gabby Giffords really want to go back to Washington? Back where she was once called ‘the most positive person in Congress.’

“Staying upbeat, even during the unsettling campaigns of 2010. When we all watched opposition sometimes become vitriol. After she voted for health care, she faced people in her district calling her a ‘traitor,’ booing her in town halls.

“Someone even fired a gun into her office door. And you may remember Sarah Palin targeted her district with an ad that had a gun sight on it.”

Allow me to tell you what I remember:

First and foremost, Sarah Palin did not use a “gun sight.”  That is a documented lie.  Sarah Palin used a surveyor’s symbol:

The icons placed on strategic Congressional districts throughout the U.S. were interpreted as cross hairs or gun sights. Devonia Smith at the Examiner says they’re neither; they’re surveyor’s symbols:Surveryorsymbol

Now, aside from the fact that saying it this way makes Diane Sawyer a liar and a propagandist, I suppose it is true that calling it a “gun sight” rather than a “surveyor’s symbol” sounds more provacative.

Fact number two: If you want to know who has actually used “gun sights” to target their opposition, Ms. Sawyer, why didn’t you point out the Democratic Leadership Committee’s use of gun sights to target Republicans?

The map appears on this page of the Democratic Leadership Committee website (dated 2004 during the Bush years). I guess we could argue over whether the DLC counts as “senior party officials” but they’re certainly as much a part of the party as Palin who, after all, currently holds no elected office. …

Fact number three: Bob Beckell, liberal Democrat strategist, has long boasted that he created the targeted district concept.  Why didn’t you acknowledge that fact, Ms. Sawyer, you liberal propagandist witch???

But there’s a fourth fact that Diane Sawyer and ABC would have mentioned – given that they decided to drag Sarah Palin into this – if they had so much as a scintilla of integrity or objectivity in their little cockroach souls: Sarah Palin was by far and away the only one to “target” Gabrielle Giffords.  And the liberal who DID target Giffords also went so far as to say the words “she’s dead.”:

Update, January 9: I would like liberals who blame the “toxic rightwing rhetoric” for the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords to respond to this little factoid:

The website Daily Kos has also deleted a diary about Rep. Gabrielle Giffords entitled “My Congresswoman Voted Against Pelosi, Now She’s Dead To Me,” but so far has not deleted a post by founder Markos Moulitsas that lists Giffords’ district among those on their “target list,” and noted that “Not all of these people will get or even deserve primaries, but this vote certainly puts a bulls eye on their district.” (emphasis ours).

Please explain to me why Sarah Palin’s use of surveyor symbols or whichever angry conservative comments resulted in Gabrielle Giffords being shot rather than leftwingers putting her on their “bulls eye” “target list,” or influential liberals like Moulitsas saying that Giffords is “dead to me.” Because I’d really like to know.

If you click on the links, you will see that somebody wisely kept a record of the truth that the vile left dishonestly tried to purge.  Even as they shrilly demonized Sarah Palin for doing a tiny fraction of what they themselves had done.

Nobody is more responsible than our journalists for creating the hell that America has become.  As godawful as Democrats are, they have the right to be partisan.  Journalists have a constitutionally-imposed duty to serve as impartial watchdogs – and they decided to become leftwing propagandists instead in an act that poisoned this country with a constant barrage of carefully selected lies.

Why did Diane Sawyer decide to demonize Sarah Palin so unfairly and so divorced from factual reality?  Why did she go after Palin and refuse to go after Joe Biden (remember how Obama lectured us to be more civil in our language?)  And yet the very next day after Giffords’ was interviewd, Joe Biden said to unions:

“Folks, you fired the first shot.”

You know, rather like Jared Loughner fired the first shot into Gabrielle Giffords’ skull…

Why not bring something like that up instead?  You know, unless you are a far-left Joseph Goebbels-style propagandist???

Satan masquerades as an angel of light (2 Cor 11:14) while he deceives billions of human beings into hell.  And these demonic minions of the mainstream media sweetly smile at you and lie like the hell they are filled with while they’re doing it.

If the media reported fairly, accurately and honestly, the Democrat Party would have gone the way of the Dodo bird a long time ago.  One day Diane Sawyer and all the “journalists” like her will burn in hell.
