Collectivists declare, "No more Mister Nice Guy."
"All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war." -- Billy Beck, August 2009.
"Media Matters' war against Fox."
The liberal group Media Matters has quietly transformed itself in preparation for what its founder, David Brock, described in an interview as an all-out campaign of “guerrilla warfare and sabotage” aimed at the Fox News Channel.
The group, launched as a more traditional media critic, has all but abandoned its monitoring of newspapers and other television networks and is narrowing its focus to Fox and a handful of conservative websites, which its leaders view as political organizations and the “nerve center” of the conservative movement. The shift reflects the centrality of the cable channel to the contemporary conservative movement, as well as the loathing it inspires among liberals — not least among the donors who fund Media Matters’ staff of about 90, who are arrayed in neat rows in a giant war room above Massachusetts Avenue.
We are at war for the soul of America. The other side makes no pretense that it is engaged in all-out, no-holds-barred, ideological warfare.
Funny thing though. They are attacking FOX, when it is CBS that has the story with the potential to bring down the Leviathan's legitimacy in a thunderous crash. Perhaps we should encourage them to keep attacking FOX. "Hold onto 'em by the nose, and kick 'em in the ass," as Patton said.
