Robert F. Kennedy Jr. epitomizes how blind and delusional progressive liberals can be. During a discussion on HuffPost Live, he asserted that the two biggest problems in American politics are: the influence of big money and “the right-wing control of the American media.”
Focusing on FOX news, Kennedy complained saying: “It’s divided our country in a way that we haven’t been divided probably since the Civil War”. He also lamented that Republicans “are the only ones that have their own (TV) network”.
Considering that Obama and liberals have deliberately split the country with class warfare and have actively promoted an “us-against-them” atmosphere, Kennedy’s remarks are laughable. Continual attacks from the left on the integrity, patriotism, and decency of Republicans, along with allegations of racism, for disagreeing with the liberal agenda have increased partisanship and deepened animosity in the public.
Obama and the left manipulated public opinion and transferred blame for everything from Bush onto the rich, intentionally pitting the “have-nots” against the “haves”, poisoning the American Dream in the process. Obama’s “my way or the highway” governing has killed compromise in Washington and all blame for inaction of Congress is attributed to demonized Republicans.
The liberal mainstream media and network TV overwhelmingly backs the administration with a bias that has become blatant. FOX News, the only place one can hear both sides of an issue, is a threat to liberals such as Kennedy and hated for giving opposing views a voice. The increasing popularity of FOX undermines the liberal campaign to monopolize the news and public opinion.
Railing against the ‘influence of big money’ from a member of the wealthy and influential Kennedy clan is priceless. It mirrors Obama’s feigned distaste of the rich as he unabashedly elicits their approval, partnership, and money – while emulating their lifestyle.
Kennedy is so full of himself and his agenda that there is no room for reality. Unfortunately, Obama’s re-election has convinced many like Kennedy that the liberal agenda is the only American accepted agenda. This delusion drives a blinding distortion of reality and Kennedy highlighted that delusion well.
