The lyrics of the Rascals song “Look Around” characterizes my feelings about the provocateur Karl Rove:
Everything is upside down
Bigotry, hate and fear
Got ten million votes this year”. Rove will say and do anything for a GOP vote. The goal is make the fear red staters fear or hate something and blame the Democrats.
We discussed this earlier when Herr Rove propagated hypocrisy about the XL Pipeline. It really doesn’t matter what topic he’s lying about it is all about “Turd Blossom’s” “permanent Republican majority”.
Can we just dismiss Herr Karl’s concern for Hillary Clinton’s health? No, the red staters will be inundated with this misinformation until the eyes and ears burn and if they had sense they’d turn it off-but they have to trust someone. It is unfortunate that their upbringing and culture force them to believe Rove’s comrades Rush Limbaugh and the entertainers at FOX News.
The article “Karl Rove publicly questions Hillary Clinton’s health” makes me feel like Winston in “1984”. I’d offer up for torture anybody just to make my greatest fear listening to Herr Karl again to stop. In Winston’s case it was the rat from eating him alive, and isn’t that a fitting analogy?
The article states “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that,” Rove said.”
Another GOP crony former Bush communications director Nicole Wallace as well as Rove later admitted that Rove’s comments were not accurate.
The article states “Wallace continued, saying that voters are, “smart enough to cancel out” comments that are wrong or have crossed a line, and will correct for that.”
For the love of all that is good and decent in the world how will red staters ever work this out when all that Clear Radio Channel and FOX News propagates is this distortion of reality? Every one of us has to believe in something. It is unfortunate that their biases lead them to believe this, and Rove knows all about red staters psychology.
We discussed in the article “Murdoch Saw Citizen Kane and Rove is Eager to Use Him” that Rove has no concern for veracity, as the article states “William Randolph Hearst created yellow journalism, which is sensationalized stories of dubious veracity.” Doesn’t that seem similar to the tripe that the GOP’s propaganda organs spew out? Is there anything worse than lying your country into war? Hearst is by many sources to blame for leading our country into the Spanish American war and many accuse Rove of leading us into the Iraq war.
Of course, Rove would lie about Hillary Clinton and there will be attacks in the future.
I accuse Karl Rove of being a GOP propagandist of the worst magnitude. History shows us that no one should have believed Hearst’s misinformation and will have the same judgment for Rove.
