WND: Journalists Should Be Executed In Honor Of Free Speech Week Because Supporting American President Is Treason

Are you there God? It's me MargaretWingNutDaily editrix Jerome Corsi is still flying around on Ol’ Miffed Romney’s plane as a valued member of the press, but is he aware that his own columnist (a black man who is, er, the author of Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal – America’s Racial Obsession) is now calling for his death by firing squad as mandated in our cherished and inerrant Constitution what Jesus wrote? If anything, it just makes too much sense. Supporting the American president is treason, and Fifth Columnist Angela Lansbury stand-in Candy Crowley waved the Queen of Hearts at the foreign policy debate, so all reporters must die, because it is Free Speech Week. We are sorry if that sounds harsh, but freedom isn’t free or something, dudes.

So what is up, Erik Rush?

Well, it’s Free Speech Week, an annual celebration of Americans’ right to free speech hosted by the Media Institute. Partnering organizations include media organizations across the political spectrum. What’s ironic is the extent to which Americans’ free speech is under assault at present. While this is more evident among the non-liberal, non-secular folks among us, this oppression is just part of a design that will ultimately stifle all of our speech and liberties to varying extents. Since it is Free Speech Week, I can’t think of a more perfect time to clarify just what free speech is and, more importantly, what it is not.

We think we can guess where this is going: It is Free Speech Week, but Free Speech is not liberal speech because liberal speech stifles speech. (SO ALL REPORTERS MUST DIE.)

During my lifetime, I have seen the press become an advance force for social engineering and global socialism. The degree to which they have deceived Americans and enabled the agenda of radicals in recent decades is beyond shame. As former Democratic pollster Pat Caddell said recently, the press has become an enemy of the American people. In the matter of this president, the press largely facilitated the ascension of Barack Obama. The instances wherein they have promoted, shielded and aided him are beyond enumeration.

This goes beyond such things as MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and his man crush on Obama – I’m talking about treasonous collusion. One particularly scandalous incident occurred during the second presidential debate, when CNN moderator Candy Crowley made an interjection that appeared to have been as spontaneous as Ambassador Chris Stevens’ murder, and which led to a solid point scored for Obama. Most recently, after Mitt Romney brought up Obama’s 2009 “Apology Tour,” the press did their best to support Obama’s claim that this never happened, despite boundless reams of footage that exist chronicling the event.

Chris Matthews, Candy Crowley, Pat Caddell, Libya, Socialism. Okay. Got it. Reporters must die.

It is improbable that the framers of the Constitution anticipated a situation in which the press were entirely given over to seditious, anti-American policies. If they had, it is likely that their modus operandi would be similar to that for any faction found guilty of high crimes. Trials for treason and the requisite sentences would apply, and I would have no qualms about seeing such sentences executed, no matter how severe.

Treason and executions, yes. Understood. Reporters: are they dead yet?

Those whose speech and actions impinge upon the God-given rights set forth in the Declaration of Independence and codified in the Constitution are, by definition, excepted from protection under the First Amendment (as well as the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment). This is a very important concept to consider, because it is based on these presumptions of protected speech and equal protection for all that progressives and socialists have engaged in their predation upon our liberties.

If these truths can be acknowledged and widely accepted as such (as opposed to progressives’ Orwellian interpretations), then the political disenfranchisement of liberals, progressives, socialists and Marxists can begin in earnest, and in the open.

A man advocating executing journalists for treason in honor of Free Speech Week for being too supportive of the American president just described other people as “Orwellian.” Good job, Rush. Super totes double-plus-good.

Go home everyone. The Internet has won. (Unless you’re a reporter, in which case, time to die.)

    Can we start with Jerome Corsi?

    • http://www.wonkette.com Lionel[redacted]Esq

      No, because he is standing up for the great American Value of accusing someone of being a secrete Muslim while engaging in random gay sex and drug use without any credible evidence. That is what the founders were thinking about when they wrote the Declaration of Independence and Constitution.

      • shelwood46

        I believe you mean when the Founders wrote down the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, as dictated by Our Lord Jebus. (Wouldn't want to get that wrong, as that is a hangin' offense.)

    Your move, Joe Stalin.

    • HogeyeGrex

      and I would have no qualms about seeing such sentences executed, no matter how severe.

      Which made me wonder how he'd feel if the pendulum swung the other way and things like advocating torture and warrantless searches and unjustifiable war and indefinite detention of citizens without charge and such as were to be considered treasonous.

      Wupsie.

      Yeah. "Kill them all", as long as I get to decide who "they" are.

      • GunToting[Redacted]

    Ah yes, "beyond enumeration"…2012's answer to "studies have shown".

    • http://www.wonkette.com Lionel[redacted]Esq

      "some people have said"

    • Generation[redacted]

      Just in case someone asks him to enumerate them. Nope! They're beyond that!

    • AlterNewt

      "..beyond enumeration."

      That's handy.

    • JustPixelz

    • Callyson

      "beyond enumeration" = I've got nothing.

    • mull_man

      So he is saying the set is uncountably infinite.

      However, the number of journalists is a finite set; the stories that any journalist can produce is a finite set. Any operation of one finite set on another yields a finite set. Therefore, the proposition is false. QED.

      Proposition II: Erik Rush is an ignorant dick. Ibid. QED.

      • Boojum

        Or, it could be he is recognizing, at some level, that he is suffering from mental illness, in which case he is referring to irrational numbers, which are (quite literally) beyond enumeration. So, he believes, the press did these things pi times, or the number of times they did them is equal to the square root of two.

  • PsycWench

    Remember, to the Jerome Corsi's of the world "Free Speech" is short for "My Freedom to Hear Only What I Want To Hear But Say Whatever The Hell I Like". Surely you can see why so confusing.

    • HogeyeGrex

      "Free Speech" = "My Speech" and no one can criticize me for it now SHUT UP THAT'S WHY.

    • natl_[redacted]_cmdr

      And if anyone dare criticize his speech he will accuse them of violating his free speech by pointing out how fucking stupid he is.

  • JudasPeckerwood

    "It is improbable that the framers of the Constitution anticipated a situation in which the press were entirely given over to seditious, anti-American policies."

    Um, as revolutionaries, weren't they all about that seditious-y stuff?

    • PsycWench

      The term "revolutionary" does seem to infer seditiousness, now that you mention it.

    • HogeyeGrex

      Good thing none of those Conservatives wax nostalgic for any sort of major seditious events or perhaps fetishize things that commemorate them like, say, flags with stars and bars on them.

    • delaney_blom

      seditiious, pro-American policies are okay. (pro-real American, that is)

    • LesBontemps

      Also, founding grandpa Ben Franklin? Mainstream media mogul. And treasonous, too, definitely.

    • Boojum

      Yes, I cannot imagine that the Framers could possibly have believed that the press would have had an agenda and would certainly have criminalized such journalistic crimes!

      Of course, I say this knowing that it is full of shit.

    • Swampgas_Man

      As I recall, Thomas Jefferson wasn't terribly fond of the whole Free-Speech thing.

  • owhatever

    An old reporter read this fart's ranting and said, "Yawn."

  • emmelemm

    Wait wait wait…

    the political disenfranchisement of liberals, progressives, socialists and Marxists can begin in earnest, and in the open

    So, first he says the liberals have taken over the media so there is no free speech, blah blah blah. Then he says, "We must disenfranchise the liberals, socialists, etc…" Yes, disenfranchising people openly and in earnest. I'm sure that's exactly what the writers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution had in mind.

    • http://www.wonkette.com Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Well, if they are Socialist, and probably uppity.

    Well, if what he says is true, (and I have no doubt it is) and he's a member of the press "whose speech and actions impinge upon the God-given rights set forth in the Declaration of Independence and codified in the Constitution", the only patriotic thing to do now is turn himself in.

  • docterry6973

    Not at all. He is making a logical argument. Obama is a traitor, so any reporter who says Obama is a traitor is a patriot, and any reporter who does not say that Obama is a traitor is a traitor. Now if we had a Republican president, any reporter who said he was a traitor would be a traitor, and anyone who did not would be a patriot. QED.

    The key is that Erik Rush knows the GOD-GIVEN rules by which we must conduct our government, so his definition is absolutely correct for all time. Simple, really.

    I like the comment: "It is improbable that the framers of the Constitution anticipated a situation in which the press were entirely given over to seditious, anti-American policies."

    The article's author can't comprehend that the framers of both the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were seditionists. You can fact check with King George III. How ironic that it's now illegal to talk sedition.

    "It is improbable that the framers of the Constitution anticipated a situation in which the press were entirely given over to seditious, anti-American policies."

    Oh no you don't, dickcheeze. It is ALSO improbable that the framers anticipated a situation where one man could murder dozens in just a few minutes with a firearm that spits out hundreds of rounds per minute. If you get to play this game with the 1st Amendment, why don't we get to play the same game with the 2nd Amendment?

    Only a true conservative lover of the constitution would be able to suggest something like this. Where do we find the details the patriotism test that we should give the press? I'm thinking something simple-if the reporter sinks, he/she was clearly a witch/islamofacist/maoist/marxist. If he/she floats, patriot.
    I love fake patriots like this guy-only things done to further beliefs other than yours are traitorous. Things like this done to further your own cause? Patriotic. Disregarding the constitution to silence a perceived enemy and to win a political victory? America. Fuck yeah.

    • Rotundo_

      If you're not scared, you're not paying attention. Use the fear like I do, as motivation to get off my ass and vote. All kidding aside, when these types get a little light shined on them they usually wither and droop pretty fast. The ones who don't (see the Koch brothers) are the truly scary ones. But you still can vote. Do so while it is still available.

    Remember, this is Erik Rush, not Jerome Corsi, writing. I find his rich and varied biography frightfully interesting:
    http://www.erikrush.com/blog/?page_id=2

    Erik Rush is a New York-born columnist, author and speaker. Erik writes sociopolitical commentary for WorldNetDaily, The Daily Pledge, and other online and print publications. His latest book, “Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal ~ America’s Racial Obsession,” examines the racist policies by which the political left keeps black Americans in thralldom, white Americans guilt-ridden and yielding, and maintains the fallacy that America remains an institutionally racist nation.

    In February of 2007, Erik was the first to break the story of President (then Senator) Barack Obama’s ties to militant Chicago preacher Rev. Jeremiah Wright on a national level. Erik has appeared on FoxNews, CNN, and is a veteran of numerous radio appearances.

    Erik Rush was born in New York City on January 1, 1961, the first child of a white father and black mother. For many years his family lived in the same neighborhood as Betty Shabazz (Malcolm X’s widow) and her children. His mother also founded a prominent African dance and drum troupe in New York; thus, Erik grew up keenly aware of the unfolding cultural issues of the day.

    From 1975 to 1985, Erik worked as a studio, club, and stage musician and in biomedical research. In 1986, he relocated to Colorado and became a Christian in 1989. In 1996, one of his short stories won a Chrysalis first place award for short fiction; in 2002 his novel, “The Angels Fell,” was released.

    Having been cognizant of sociopolitical issues since his youth, as he wrote, Erik began to lean toward expression of his beliefs concerning the mind- and spirit-stultifying developments and conventions that he saw in America.

    Erik has studied various Eastern philosophies, martial arts, politics, military history and business. He enjoys family time, playing music, and refinishing guitars. In addition to biomedical research, he has worked in marketing and media production.

    Why should America be scared shitless by multiculturalism, when a tragic mulatto can turn out to be an outstanding WND author like the clear-sighted Mr. Rush?

    • northernbassist

      From 1975 to 1985, Erik worked as a studio, club, and stage musician and in biomedical research.

      OK, having worked as a studio, club, and stage musician, and knowing what goes on, his only biomedical research consisted of, "how much of this shit do I need to shoot up before I start trippin' balls…?"

    "…after Mitt Romney brought up Obama’s 2009 'Apology Tour,' the press did their best to support Obama’s claim that this never happened, despite boundless reams of footage that exist chronicling the event."

    It was boundless, all right. Fantasy has no limits, as it isn't tethered to reality.

    PS: If Erik "Can't Stop Fucking That Chicken" Rush wants to see REAL government-media collusion, perhaps he could Google "Operation Truth" … a major op to subvert the Press from none other than Ronald "Fascist Death Squads Are Just Like The Founding Fathers" Reagan.
