From 6-29-16 episode of The Rob Zicari Show LIVE 10-1pm M-F
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The Republican Party is doomed is we don’t get our act together. The GOP is never going to take back the White House or have any say in the government unless they buy up media outlets like CNN, Huffington Post, NBC, etc.
A young person who is just starting to form their own political ideals is being inundated by liberal messages. They are watching Amy Schumer do comedy skits on gun control. They’re watching the BET Awards. It’s all liberal messages. We’re doomed.
As flawed as Hillary Clinton is, it doesn’t matter whether it’s Marco Rubio, Ted, Cruz, Jeb Bush or John Kasich. There is no way they are going to let a Republican win the White House. I don’t care how disciplined or on message the candidate is. I don’t care if there is nothing that separates him from Hillary Clinton other than he doesn’t have 30 years worth of scandals behind him. It doesn’t matter whether he’s young or good looking. The media is never ever going to let Republicans control the government. It’s never going to happen.
Look at the abortion case that was just handed down by the Supreme Court. Texas laws that required doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at local hospitals and forced clinics to meet hospital-like standards for outpatient surgery were struck down. Set aside the abortion argument of when life begins. To a rational person, these seem like common sense measures. Making sure a doctor can admit a patient to the hospital if there are complications or maintaining strict hygiene for surgery sound like good ideas to me.
The left’s argument is that a lot of these clinics won’t be able to meet these standards and would have to close and women would be forced to drive an extra couple hundred miles to get an abortion. But aren’t better safety and cleanliness standards worth a longer drive? Why would anyone want to get a medical procedure at a clinic without adequate hygiene or access to a hospital if there is a problem?
This is common sense to a rational person, but since the media controls the message, all you hear is that it’s a witch hunt, an end run around Roe v. Wade, it limits access to women’s healthcare and places an unreasonable burden on providers. If liberals didn’t control the message, there is no way this would have gone down the way it did.
Let me give you another example. Now I’m not a Nazi fan. I don’t dig the KKK. I’m not hot on hate groups, but if they want to have a rally in a park, and they’ve gone though all the legal channels to be able to do so, I don’t have a problem with it. I don’t have to like their speech and can choose for myself whether or not to listen to them.
There was an incident recently in Sacramento. It was very similar to what has gone on at Trump rallies, where protesters who are funded by George Soros and MoveOn.org show up and start beating up Trump supporters and throwing rocks at cops. This is celebrated by the left. No one condemns the lawlessness because if it’s something the left approves of, throwing rocks and bottles and setting things on fire is perfectly acceptable.
That’s what happened to about 30 members of a white nationalist group called the Traditionalist Worker Party. They were set upon by about 300 leftist protesters whose sole purpose was to shut down their event. Again, I’m not a supporter of Nazis or Klan rallies, but if they get permits and do everything by the book, they should have a right to have them. No different than a gay pride parade or a St. Patrick’s Day parade or a San Gennaro festival or a Black Panther march. It’s no different than anything going on that other people might not like. We may not like it, but what right do we have to shut it down?
So 300 leftist thugs attacked 30 Nazis. Ten people were treated for stab woulds. You had to do some serious digging to get the details because the media’s narrative was that a bunch of Nazis came to town and liberal freedom fighters shut them down because they didn’t have a right to be there. Some of these heroic liberals were stabbed and almost killed, but they did it for us. That was the narrative, but all the violence could have been avoided by letting the Nazis do what they were legally allowed to do. I don’t like racists any more than liberals do, but if they do everything legally, they should be allowed to express themselves, as repugnant as their views may be.
Look at Brexit. The British people voted to leave the European Union. But now they want to do a re-vote. A do-over. The media is pushing for a do-over. The liberal media doesn’t like what happened, neither do the politicians. Nobody is saying that the people have spoken, that it’s over. The media wants a do-over, so that’s the narrative.
I’m telling you, we’re doomed.
In order to get the real story on anything, you have to do some digging. If you rely on free media, you get the narrative they want pushed. That’s why the GOP needs to own more media outlets. It’s like advertising. If you want someone to buy your product, you have to put it in front of peoples’ eyes.
The narrative against voter ID laws is another example of a common sense measure that gets twisted by the media. You have to have ID to do anything in life, open a bank account, get a job, whatever. If you don’t have an ID, you have bigger problems than not being able to vote. Somehow requiring someone to have ID to vote is a race thing. If you support voter ID, you’re a racist. The media and the left created this. They took something reasonable and replaced it with something illogical.
As far as the left is concerned, there should no restrictions on voting or abortion. Anything that impedes either is racist or sexist. But when it comes to guns, there can’t be enough restrictions.
I know I’m preaching to the choir. The left isn’t listening to me or Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck. The left is preaching to the new people with fresh minds and hearts. Republicans need to be able to reach these new people or they are doomed. If the GOP doesn’t invest in media outlets and continues to do things the same way, they are done.
