RED Dems

Remember Commie Red?

Yesterday I was listening to Tom Marr on WCBM when a caller brought up "NBC" taking the traditional Republican Blue and Democrat Red election map colors and flipping them.  His explanation was that "Democrats=Red" was just too unfortunate an association for media to swallow.  Tom Marr poo-poo'd the idea,  stating that Dems had always been blue.  Surprised me, because Marr has been around a long time.  Marr was wrong.

What the caller missed however was that the flip was coordinated (there was no Fox News) on all  networks, CNN included.  This happened sometime  around  Bush41—Clinton.  I could find out by watching election videos, but I can't be bothered. What further surprised me was that it went unmentioned, in my experience, until yesterday. Hmmm. I think what we have here is a probable first palpable example  of the Democrat Media Complex in action. 

Of course I can't be sure that the reason for the switch was the "Commie Red" v. "True Blue" association, but it was something.  And it was effected simultaneously across the television news spectrum.  Anyway, not two hours later I serendipitously happened across this video.

PS- I have a gnawing feeling that I first wrte about this on Free Republic ca1997, so I will guess it was Clinton's doing. 

Après Nixon, le déluge de merde communistes

Après Nixon, le déluge de merde communistes
WTF?  Explanation below the fold.

Thanks to George Kowalczuk for this bit of fun.  Again, this is representative of  the culture many of us grew up in; so what happened?  If I was to pick a turning point, it would be  AUGUST 9, 1974.  That's the day Richard Nixon was driven out of office in what I (and many others) can only view as a silent coup. The 1974 off-year elections saw a wholesale slaughter of Republicans; replaced by what we now recognize as  the vanguard of the neo-Democrat  Party that rules today. 

How leftist were they?  Hint; ten years later the the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) nominated their last presidential candidate, Gus Hall.  After that,  the CPUSA simply endorsed Democrat candidates.  .

Dianne Feinstein joins push to keep health plans
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that she will co-sponsor a bill by Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) to require insurance companies to continue offering their existing health care plans — a way to make good on President Barack Obama’s promise that consumers can keep their current coverage if they like it.

If it's true that Democrats thrive on creating problems that they can later campaign with promises of  fixing, and it manifestly is, then these two are poster girls.  Since Obamacare passed by one vote in the Senate, every Democrat is personally responsible for its enactment.  But some are more equal than others. Mary Landrieu took a $100 million (of taxpayer money) bribe for her vote,  and is singled out as "the deciding vote for Obamacare (and is) in a panic, not for you, but for her own political career." 

Then there's George Clooney.

Clooney was a featured villain in  "Team America: World Police."  - 'Nuff said.
