Hatred masquerades as journalism
Arizonans foolish enough to subscribe to the shriveling yet still virulently leftist agendized Arizona Republic, know the drill. Illegal aliens are routinely referred to as “undocumented immigrants” or “asylum-seeking migrants.” Reports about their invasion of the United States or crimes resulting in their arrest treat them with kid gloves.
The status of illegal criminals is no longer reported, since that could unfairly prejudice readers regarding their unlawful residency. Wrong-way freeway drivers who are responsible for havoc and death due to their intoxication and/or inability to read English language street signs have become routine. Reports of men engaging in sex with underage girls are increasingly frequent. Then there is the obnoxious reporting notion that only reporters with Hispanic surnames can report on Hispanic issues or defendants. That same flawed perspective doesn’t hold true with other ethnicities.
If the AZ Republic’s bias would be encapsulated, the name to file it under would be hard-core left-wing partisan EJ Montini.
His recent column refers to conservative members of Arizona’s congressional delegation who joined the larger protest of the injudicious secrecy surrounding the Democrats’ attempt to overturn, by way of impeachment, the 2016 presidential election won by Donald Trump. Marginal miscreant Montini calls elected U.S. Reps. Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar and Debbie Lesko “stooges…engaged in an ignorant, idiotic sit-in.”
The Hillary-endorsing newspaper, recently included in a buyout by a conglomerate, obviously agrees, since his obnoxiously infantile column was not excised.
Republicans didn’t support Barack Obama, who campaigned on “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Following his election, he embarked on a world-wide apology tour, deferentially bowing to Muslim royals, despots and others. Making deals with the devil, he delivered $1.7 billion in cash to our enemy Iran — a rogue nation that has sworn to annihilate us. Collusion? Obama was caught on an open mic doing exactly that with the Russian President Dmitri Medvedev.
There were no calls from the right to impeach this duly elected, though clearly anti-American, president. We waited him out and ultimately elected President Donald J. Trump.
That same reliance on our Constitutional election process has no validity with the Democrats or leftist goons exemplified by EJ Montini.
