“Hating Breitbart” – A Powerflul Movie that Explains Why We Lost in 2012

Share

Hating Breitbart is a great movie about a great American patriot. Unfortunately it was released too late to help us understand what we were really up against in 2012. Governor Mitt Romney was not running against Barack Obama alone. He was also running against a liberal media that was determined from the beginning to re-elect the President they had installed in office in the 2008 election.

Hating Breitbart illustrates not just the bias of the liberal media, but the outright activism of the media. A point in case is the mythical Republican War on Women created by George Stephanopoulos during one of the Republican Primary Presidential Debates. Contraception was not and should not have been an issue in the 2012 campaign. But, Stephanopoulos created this myth that Republicans wanted to ban birth control and the rest of the media ran with it. This was not some kind of political fluke. It was, rather, a strategy implemented by the media to create and control the tone and content of the issues to be discussed in the election.

Abortion, likewise, should not have been a center issue for Republicans during this election. Granted, it is an issue of importance to people, and it should be a foundation of our platform and position, but this election should have been about jobs and national security. The media was not about to let that happen because those are losing issues for Obama. We followed their lead and let this be a promoted issue. The result – two stupid sentences from two Senate candidates – two lost Senate seats and a severely tarnished Republican brand.

There is no Republican War on Women. It is a myth created to drive a wedge between women and Republicans. If you want to understand where women are on politics, look at my interview with Debbie Georgatos and read her book, “Ladies, Can We Talk?”


Andrew Breitbart understood the media and its approach and tactics. After all, he had been one of them. But he saw the harm that was being done to our country and decided to do something about it. Breitbart went to war with the mainstream media and the Democrat propoganda machine.

When you watch the movie, Hating Breitbart, you will learn to look at the media in a different light. You will see how they are not only willing, but eager accomplices with the Democrats. Hating Breitbart illustrates this by showing how Breitbart dealt with Democrats and the media about the alleged issue of Tea Party member verbally assaulting black Members of Congress with racial slurs. It didn’t happen. There is no proof that it happened. But these Congressmen said it did, so the media ran with it. Evidence? We don’t need no stinking evidence!

All Republicans should see this movie. We need to learn and understand Democrat and liberal media strategies. We should learn their tools and use them against them. Radio talk show host Kira Davis has learned this and is using it very effectively to reach out to minority voters across the country.

In many ways, TexasGOPVote founder and publisher, John Stautner, shows much of the same warrior mentality as Andrew Breitbart. He is studying these tactics and teaching them to a small but growing army of bloggers and writers like me who will not sit back and allow the media to run unchecked.

  1. “Contraception was not and should not have been an issue in the 2012 campaign.”

    Why not? Because you say so?

    Rick Santorum seems to think it was important enough to bring up:

    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/santorum-court-ruled-wrongly-griswold-v-connecticut-pre-roe-right-privacy-decision

    I’ve been watching the right for years, and I’ve seen many people, especially in the Tea Party, come out against Griswold v Connecticut, thinking it should be overturned, so perhaps you should tell your own people that they should stop suggesting it be overturned, eh?

    “We followed their lead and let this be a promoted issue. The result – two stupid sentences from two Senate candidates – two lost Senate seats and a severely tarnished Republican brand.”

    Shorter Bob Price: We’re really f***ing stupid. We really should blame that one someone else.

    “Hating Breitbart illustrates this by showing how Breitbart dealt with Democrats and the media about the alleged issue of Tea Party member verbally assaulting black Members of Congress with racial slurs. It didn’t happen. There is no proof that it happened. But these Congressmen said it did, so the media ran with it. Evidence? We don’t need no stinking evidence!”

    I’m in love with this paragraph.

    First, “It didn’t happen”, which leaves no room for doubt. Then, “There is no proof it happened”, which is a fallacious argument – because Breitbart didn’t beleive it happened, any evidence it might have happened is suspect. Which then leaves the implication that a man like John Lewis (a better, braver, stronger man than Breitbart could have ever hoped to be) is a liar.

    Bob Price’s paragraph is such a subtle, insidious example of how conservatives try to manipulate things, it really is a thing of beauty.

    “Hating Breitbart is a great movie about a great American patriot. Unfortunately it was released too late to help us understand what we were really up against in 2012.”

    Yeah, too bad there wasn’t some documentary about how terrible Obama was that racked up $30,000,000. Oh wait, adulterer Dinesh D’Souza’s move, “2016: Obama’s America” was out there. People just don’t really care about Andrew Breitbart. He’ll best be remembered for getting a Congressman to resign for showing his wing-wang. That’s it.

    “In many ways, TexasGOPVote founder and publisher, John Stautner, shows much of the same warrior mentality as Andrew Breitbart.

    I’m surprised there wasn’t a link to a PayPal account after that.

  2. If you haven’t noticed, most people listen to talk radio, while driving to and from work. Almost all of talk radio is very conservative. Fox news, on tv, is also quite conservative. The newspapers, which nobody subscribes to anymore, unless they need bird cage liners, or use a can based charcoal starter for the grill, are liberal — but readership is not what it once was. So, the premise of this article is false — that it’s the liberal media’s fault.

    Secondly, who made a stink about contraception, and brought up the issue ? — in Arizona, it was the R’s in the legislature. Nationally, it was Rush Limbaugh calling Sandra Fluke a s–t. The liberal media did not start this — the R’s did. If it did not turn out the way you wanted it to, don’t whine about it like Mitt, be a big boy, and deal with the fact that it backfired.

    Thirdly, please communicate to Mitt that people vote for their interests, and that usually means either paying less in taxes, or getting some benefit out of government. It wasn’t so long ago that the Arizona Republican party was touting subsidized sports for all, with new stadiums, with the bill going to out of state visitors via new taxes on hotel rooms and rental cars. I won’t take any of you seriously until those members if your party who supported that are publicly chastised and humiliated. You list the election because you are a bunch of flip flopping liars, without principles. Remember alt fuels — you republicans voted yourself 200 million in new car subsidies. Get serious. And tell Mitt that grown ups don’t whine.

  3. The malaise that the 2012 election was for my party had nothing to do with Breitbart. It was a textbook perfect self-inflicted gun shot wound, actually a series of deadly gun shot wounds.
    First came Governor Ultrasound, then came the matter of an aspirin pill between the woman’s knee caps for birth control, add to this the insulting name calling to Ms. Fluke by Rush Limbaugh, add to this the stupidity of Mr Akin “If it is a genuine (good old fashioned) [my italics] rape, the woman can shut the whole thing down”
    and finally: “rape is just another way of conception and that is God’s will”. As a bonus came our candidates’ assurances to de-fund Planned Parenthood, the only one institution of last resort for women in dire straits.
    It tit wasn’t war on women it was extreme disregard for women’s rights. That is how we lost the woman’s votes. We also lost the Youth, the Hispanic’s and the Black Minority’s. The latter could be reasonably expected, the former was an awakening surprise.
    We bet our smarts in a gamble for the the White House and eventually learned we weren’t that smart after all.

  4. Horst, I know many women who wish they had had ultrasounds before they made a decision to abort their children. It’s called “Informed Consent” which is given for any other medical procedure.

    It was the occupier of the White House who insisted that insurance pay for birth control. Why can’t people have choices in the insurance they purchase? He wants to dictate every aspect of our lives. Planned Parenthood is a private organization just like Crisis Pregnancy Centers. Neither should get government funds.

    I’m sorry that you fell for the same stupid storyline the Dems dished out to their faithful.

    by Donna on Nov 21, 2012 at 4:25 pm

  5. Horst is one of the posers on this site who are dyed in the wool progressives. He hates everything [and everyone] conservative. He is not “We”, he is they. Don’t try to persuade him of anything, that is what he appears to want, just for his own giggles I guess. There are a few leftists on this site that love to pretend that they are what there’re not.

    by Sgt. Flapjaw on Nov 21, 2012 at 5:46 pm

  6. Uh, Donna, they do have choices in the insurance they pay for.
    If you don’t want birth control, you don’t have to have it.

    And, there’s just a slight difference between an abdominal ultrasound and a trans-vaginal wand.

    by Jeff on Nov 21, 2012 at 6:04 pm

  7. Obamacare is NOT about people being able to buy the insurance they want; some may want catastrophic, or major medical where they pay for doctors’s visits, but are covered for serious surgeries.

    Insurance companies should be able to offer what people want, and compete on that basis. And employers should be free to offer insurance that does not violate their religious convictions, but under Obama it is government that is supreme, not God.

    by Donna on Nov 21, 2012 at 7:15 pm

  8. Donna,
    The point I wanted to make was that the Republican Party lost the confidence of the female voters and why. If you know any woman who might have changed her mind about not going through a termination of a pregnancy had they only be coerced into a trans vaginal ultrasound procedure so be it, albeit I have difficulties following your or their reasoning after all, a termination of a pregnancy is what it is.
    It is not the killing of a baby, it is the removal of a zygote, or an embryo or a fetus. But never a baby, or a child.
    The insistence of the occupier of the White House is irrelevant in this matter.
    As the Health and Medical Monopoly of this Country has established rules that hormonal birth control medication may only be distributed by prescription, and therefore we have an insurance system that agrees for a premium to pay for such medication if authorizes (prescribed by a doctor) the insurance company has to comply and no Bible freaking Deacon or Preacher Boy can over-rule that.
    Still, the insured woman has always the right to have herself knocked up every time she submits to her husband, she has the liberty to remain barefoot and pregnant behind the kitchen stove and home-school her 18 kids with barely one healthy tooth left in her mouth for all this relentless breeding good Christian Babies.
    Donna, you are obviously American educated i.e by members of the teachers union so I will not blame you for what you have not been taught.
    The female of the human species has at her disposal between puberty and menopause between 380 to 400 human eggs to be fertilized one at the time one every 28 days. No woman in human history ever had all her eggs fertilized. So if one or two more fall through the cracks (for lack of a better description), it is not a big deal.
    There are however instances, when a woman will be forced to make the decision to breed or not to breed. This decision or circumstances leading up to it are so many fold it is impossible to even list just a few for illustration.
    That decision when imposed on one of our citizen, can not, may not ever be preempted by some bible crazed idiot who takes his clues from men who walked the earth 5000 years ago and based their writings on 5000 years ago knowledge.
    Sgt. Flapjaw belongs into that category. He calls me a Progressive, he too was solidly educated by the American Teachers Union. He does not know, that PROGRESSION is the only Constance in the Universe, and I will not hold that against him, neither do I care to make him any smarter than he is.
    He uses the word PROGRESSIVE in a derogatory way, when it is a law of the Universe not unlike GRAVITY.
    How sophomoric can one get on this Blog?

    by Horst Kraus on Nov 21, 2012 at 7:57 pm

  9. Oh Horst, thank you so much for the Biology lesson. Everyone who reads this thread must feel so much smarter now. I do insist that you are a Progressive [Communist/Socialist/Etc.] Your arrogance alone gives you away. If you would take your head out of the women’s wombs and read the history and current Progressive Movement story, you would not have to be educated by me.
    I think you know what I am talking about, you just seem to be so enamored with your own intelligence that you think you can say whatever you want and not called on it. Me thinks…..Not here.
