Screw Political Correctness. It's boring and, like Jeb Bush, low-energy.
Trump proves that every day. He doesn't give a rat's ass about political correctness, and people love him “for telling it like it is”. Right On, Donald.
Rupert Murdoch, through his hacks at FOX, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Post stomps all over political correctness on a daily basis, and has dynamite ratings and readers to show for it. Hey, you gotta love the FOX program at noon with four babes with legs on a circular couch interviewing some dopey guy in the middle. I mean, Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
Murdoch and his hacks laugh at the candy-ass liberals who get all “hurt feelings” about everything. Poor babies. Don't they know that politics ain't beanbag.
Rupert himself had a little fun recently with what he called “the deeply sensitive souls” on the Left in a speech he gave at the Hudson Institute. He gave fair warning that the room would be “an unsafe place” while he spoke because he would not be “Politically Correct”.
Rupert, I think you and I are going to be cool. It's time to identify who's who and what's what. I'm with you completely. And one more thing, Rupert: if people don't identify who they are, let's you and I do it for them. Bingo.
Rupert, did I tell you I'm Catholic? Irish too?
You can be sure Murdoch hacks are going to step up to the plate and call those ISIS people what they are … Islamic Jihadists, right Rupert? And in case people aren't paying attention, Rupert will have them put the emphasis on ISLAMIC and drive that point home.
Repetition, baby. Tell them what you're going to tell them. Tell them. Tell them what you've told them. We don't have to worry about Rupert. He'll get his folks riled up big time. That's what he does. This isn't his first rodeo.
Now, if people start to feel really angry at all 1.5 billion Muslims and it makes the war with ISIS bigger, like really a lot bigger … no problem. Not for Rupert anyway.
Look at it this way, wars are great for ratings and if people die, well, everybody dies sooner or later. Plus, it gives Israel a chance to snatch some more (Islamic) Palestinian land in the Occupied Territories … I mean, who's going to make a big stink about it if Murdoch has everyone convinced that Islam is toxic? And, it makes conditions favorable for an attack on (Islamic) Iran … things that are near and dear to your heart right, Rupert?
I can guarantee you Netanyahu will be cool with snatching some more land and hitting Iran as long as the US does the fighting. With Netanyahu, Israel doesn't fight for us or with us, we fight for them. I haven't done the research, but I think Netanyahu is Jewish.
I see you got that big toothy grin, Rupert. You are a bad, bad boy Rupert. But you sure do know how to have a good time don't you big boy.
Rupert, I think it's time you told people you're Jewish. I mean, isn't that what we're about? We're upfront with who we are, and we're upfront about what everybody else is. That's our deal, right? No Political Correctness … just the straight stuff. Remember, I told you I'm Catholic. Let me remind you your late departed mother was an Orthodox Jew, that makes you Jewish.
Now, it's one thing for me to say it, but it might have more impact if you did too. Watch how easy it is.
Hi. I'm Tom Callaghan and I'm Irish Catholic. I think we should give the 5 Billion dollars a year that we are about to give to Israel to Ireland instead. I feel that way because I like Ireland better than I like Israel. Duh.
Now when you do it Rupert, you use your own name, not mine, and remember you're Jewish not Catholic. Plus, you don't even have to bring Ireland up, unless of course you agree with my position that we should cut Israel loose and give the money to Ireland instead.
You can do it Rupert. Don't be shy. Shy is low-energy and Politically Correct.
I will post again on Wednesday January 6, 2016 or before if the news flow dictates. Plus, I may post around the time of the next Republican debate on December 15, 2015.
