A recent post Medved schemes to obstruct 2016 GOP prez nominee took Republicrat radio talk show host Michael Medved to task for scheming to throw the GOP presidential nomination into chaos — by angling for a brokered convention resulting in a compromise candidate who has not been a player in the primaries and caucuses. Medved has repeatedly counseled his listeners to shun both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz and vote for John Kasich, a man who has only won a single primary — in his home state of Ohio. Kasich drags bottom in GOP polling.
As if on cue, the Friday edition of the far left Arizona Republic newspaper does exactly the same thing with a full-page editorial written in unison by the collectivists on the editorial board. The 4-inch high headline blasts: “Reject Trump. Reject Cruz. Vote Kasich.”
The hypocrisy of a left-wing outlet righteously interjecting itself into Tuesday’s GOP primary in Arizona is unrivaled. But with readership tanking and subscriptions hemorrhaging, being outlandish isn’t risky for the failing newspaper.
Using fantastic metaphors in a vain attempt to explain the emergence of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, the newspaper demeans Trump supporters as “a goon squad.”
Yet in the end, it’s all about the illegal invasion, which the newspaper supports and the majority of Arizonans disdain. Telecommuting editorialist Linda Valdez , we should remember, is married to a Mexican national. The editorial derides the idea of a border fence claiming it “will incite our neighbor and strategic partner” Mexico.
“Incite?” Americans who shoulder the burden of the invasion at a cost of nearly $900 billion a year, are the ones who are rightfully incited.
Bloomberg News reports today on the latest shocking revelation from our “strategic partner” Mexico, which is mounting an unprecedented effort to turn its permanent residents in the U.S. into citizens, a status that would enable them to vote —- presumably against Donald Trump.
Grossly underestimating the actual number of illegals — referred to as “undocumented immigrants” in the U.S., — the Arizona Republic uses the fallback fallacy about “separating families’ when the parents are free to take their American-born children with them when they return home.
They don’t like the brilliant and accomplished Sen. Ted Cruz any better. The editorial board gets down in the dirt, calling him “unlikable,” and “despised by fellow senators.” Obviously the reference is to John McCain who, after calling Cruz and other conservatives “wacko birds” for standing up for core principles, finally apologized when he was taking brick bats for his indefensible words.
The daily calls Trump’s motives sinister and demeans his supporters frustration as a desire “to level the Washington establishment.“
It’s a good bet thoughtful Arizonans casting their ballots in the Republican primary tomorrow will not be supporting Kasich in droves. Cruz was correct in calling him a “spoiler.” That’s the only reason he’s rated a blip on the Republic’s radar.
On the facing page, the newspaper’s Democrat endorsement goes to the distrusted Hillary, who deserves to be in prison. The headline: “Clinton’s experience makes her a clear choice.”
