The elite media narrative, we have all seen it, a couple of minor players at the GOP federal machine make a foolish error, and it is all over the news.
This is like indicting Rudolph Giuliani as a bad mayor because Bernie Kerrick used to work for him. The truth is that Giuliani hired thousands of people and made thousands of decisions with the vast majority being very good for the people of New York.
Yet where is the constant onslaught against white Republicans and former GOP chairs who were less effective? Or DNC chair’s who get beaten in fund-raising and media presence by our GOP Chairman Steele?
Do you remember Miguel Estrada? He is a brilliant lawyer and when nominated by the president to be a federal judge, the Democrats said in their own leaked judiciary committee memos that his nomination had to be stopped “because he is Latino”. Read it in their own words HERE.
The left and the elite media’s narrative is that anyone who isn’t a Democrat or opposes a Democrat is a racist. How effective can that narrative be when effective Black and Latino leaders are the face of the GOP and are in power?
Did we see Senator Schumer illegally obtaining any other DNC or Republican chairman’s credit report and leak it to the press (or any other candidate’s credit report for that matter)? No. Do we see democratic operatives showing up to Steele events and throw Oreo’s at him? Yes. Do we see the failures of the DNC as far as fund-raising and generating a persuasive media presence being piled onto by the elite media? No.
Election season is near and Micheal Steele will be the face of the GOP this midterm. The elite media and the Democrats racist narrative cannot hold water with Steele being on television every single day, so they must destroy him. It is the same reason that when a Latino or a Black Tea Party participant rises to speak at an event, the elite media turns the television cameras off. Anyone who has been to a large Tea Party event has seen this happen. Look at the racist attacks on Supreme Court Justice Thomas from the left or how about the left comparing Condi Rice to Aunt Jemima etc. ?
Kevin Jackson has headlined 80 Tea Party events, yet I bet this video is the first time you have ever seen him.
The RNC just had another record month of fundraising. When you have the big gun you become the target and take a lot of fire from the enemy and this is what we are seeing in the attacks on Chairman Steele. Yes Steele has made mistakes, who doesn’t, so did Mayor Giuliani; by and large both are very capable and effective leaders. It is foolish to make the perfect the enemy of the good.
The uncomfortable truth is that the elite media narrative would be much more effective if the face of the GOP was a white southerner like Haley Barbour (don’t get me wrong, Gov. Barbour is a great guy but we are talking about a media war here). If Chairman Steele was a white man from Queens, the elite media would not be piling on as they are.
Republicans too often get caught up in the wave of media narrative and end up going along with it. Democrats, no matter how corrupt they get, can always get together to smile for the camera, drink beer and eat polish sausage. Republicans hold their own to a much higher standard, but once again we should not make the perfect the enemy of the good. Chairman Steele is an effective leader. It is time to stop making him less effective by adopting the elite media’s bogus narrative. It is time for Chairman Steele to go on the offense, big time.
