Take today's Strib letter section (please! - hahaha -ok I'll shut up). There were 10 letters in today's edition. Three could be characterized as either politically content-neutral or merely incoherent. Six were obviously left-wing talking-point drivel. That leaves one measley letter advancing a conservative viewpoint. One! Given the results of every election, that seems awfully out of step with what could be characterized as "public sentiment". At least the editor printed the conservative letter first. A small victory!
No, as the activist party, the DFL (and the national Democrat party) is comprised of professional letter-writers. Call it: "propaganda by a thousand paper cuts". If you have faith that the letters editor selects certain letters for publication based on a reflection of the content of all the letters received, you can see that the moonbats' strategy is to shoulder aside differing points of view; to in essence stiffle debate at the grass-roots level. That's why they hate blogs.
I did some googling on the 6 lefty letters. Of the three that produced usable hits, here is what I found out about the "common folk" expressing their views in the hometown paper:
- Charles Underwood is a DFL activist and was a Kusinich delegate(!) to the 2004 DNC.
- Mary McLeod is some sort of education muckety muck and, if you read between the lines, is a DFL activist
- Colleen Nardone is a DFL activist who notably was a volunteer on Ann Wynia's losing Senate campaign
That's a "crock of shit". And I just proved it.
