Anti-GOP desperation reaches a “slashing” zenith

Movie reviewer, with no movies to review, recommends cutting conservatism out of our lives

There’s no question Arizona’s radically left local newspaper is fighting for its life. To counter the fact that subscriptions are in the toilet after losing its building and repeatedly being on the auction block before finally being sold, it showcases its commitment to ethnic diversity hires, while giving a hostile thumbs down in opposition to diverse thought. Massive staff cutbacks are evident to even a casual reader as editor-deprived ASU Cronkite Journalism students take up the slack prior to being ready for prime time.  A columnist who died over three years ago reappears through his recycled columns, with the added bonus that he doesn’t require a salary. 

The latest attempt to save a buck is moving the movie critic into the political arena. Bill Goodykoontz has held on longer than cartoonist Steve Benson, who was unceremoniously kicked to the curb after decades when the failing newspaper could no longer afford the Pulitzer Prize winner.

It’s not a stretch to imagine Goodykoontz dutifully double masked as Biden and Fauci recommend. Though with no movies to review during the pandemic, he shows off his ambidextrous skills as he swings far left to grovel at the feet of job security, morphing from a reviewer to a venom spewing critic of conservatives. 

Not only does he attempt to decimate top-rated Fox News host Tucker Carlson, but like a foot stomping petulant child, he demands viewers, “Cut him out of your media diet entirely, even if you’re a fan.”  He also advocates cutting the My Pillow guy Mike Lindell out, “Like a vegan would red meat.” Why?  He’s a Trump supporter, which warrants not only silencing, but loss of your livelihood. “Vote with your remote,” hotshot Goodykoontz, the impostor who calls other people liars, advises.

You get where this is going.  See no conservatives, hear no conservatives and you’ll eventually lose your ability to comprehend or articulate conservative thought. The hope is you’ll be ignorant enough to actually buy the overpriced, leftist newspaper that pays Goodykoontz’ salary.

    A seven-year-old with a lemonade stand can tell you there’s no future in insulting your customers.

      Don’t know about insulting its readers. Don’t think many conservative are still reading this rag. SO, it appears that the paper is preaching to the choir.

    The Arizona Repukelick (kudos to whomever thought that up!!) knows its days are numbered. The so called commitment to diversity is a fraud. It is single minded in its devotion to the most extreme leftist views. Claiming diversity is represented by immutable genetic components is insulting to the people they hire, who must realize they are being marginalized and will be resented if they aren’t proficient enough at the job they were hired for. Imagine the uproar if a corporation advertised that only blue eyed applicants need apply. This is that same discrimination in reverse, but seeking “people of color” (What a smarmy term!) gets the green light? All employees should be hired on their qualification, not their ethnicity, which is something over which none of us have any control.

    The company I work for stopped selling My Pillow no surprise. And Michael Crow is a CIA plant who hates the 1st Amendment. Look what he did to Rae Lee Klein.

    Started watching Tucker regularly after seeing an attack on him. Of course the left hates him. He has courage, he digs deep and is not afraid to tell the truth. Truth is not a left-wing value. The press is the enemy of the people. They lie as easily as we breathe. They never expose a leftist lie and repeat the plethora of democrat lies. Imagine if they were fair and balanced. Donald Trump would still be president. The NY Times far exceeds the local rag–all the lies fit to print. Check this out:

    Thank you, once again for the editing suggestions, which have all been implemented. Your interest in keeping SRAZ on the journalistic straight and narrow is definitely appreciated. If we had a payroll, you’d be on it!
