When President Bush
stepped onto the presidential landscape in 2000, the Left had only just started
to show their true colors – especially those on the extreme left-wing of
the media, who prove daily to be further aiding and abetting our foreign
enemies. Undeniably, Bush seems to have brought out the voracious fury
of the Left in ways no other president has done since Ronald Reagan won the
Although leftist propaganda portals such as CNN, MSNBC, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the San Francisco Chronicle,
to mention a few, have done their part to advance the Left’s agenda, ultra-leftist
extremists have already infiltrated the new media of cyberspace – spewing
out their caustic venom at the current administration.
One of the Web sites that has morphed itself into a veritable Trojan horse arm of the extreme leftist media is Truthout.org
– an anti-Bush cyber landfill that masquerades as a bastion of news credibility.
Not only does Truthout.org post exclusively pro-Democrat, Bush-hating articles
and editorials – they also boycott the views and opinions of both conservative
Republicans and Libertarians.
While claiming to represent America and purportedly seeking to “get the truth
out,” Truthout.org conceals who they really are: A cornucopia of anti-American,
anti-Semitic, pro-Palestine sedition. Its primary purpose: dumping
extreme, Far Left rhetoric into its own little private black hole on the
Internet – to anyone and everyone desperate enough to read its acerbic pontifications.
In fact, as an analysis, a quick glance at the articles posted on Truthout.org
reveals its ultimate goal: to politically destroy the moral and ethical character
of President Bush, while spitting on not only the graves of our brave soldiers,
but also on American patriotism. Its anti-U.S., anti-war message speaks
volumes about the treasonous corruption of the Far Left, who seems to care
more about protecting our enemies than protecting our borders.
Truthout.org’s associate editor, William Rivers Pitt, whose Web site seems
to post only articles and editorials with a Far Left anti-Semitic and pro-Palestinian
bent, has authored such leftist tomes as Our Flag, Too: The Paradox of Patriotism and War on Iraq: What Team Bush Doesn’t Want You To Know. The latter was written from an interview with Scott Ritter, a former Clinton Administration weapons inspector.
In the book, Pitt and Ritter try to make the case that the U.S. and the rest
of the world would have been better off if Saddam Hussein were still in power.
These two Fifth columnists theorize that Saddam never actually posed a real
threat to our national security at all – especially since he supposedly destroyed
all of his WMDs. (This is yet another trait of the Far Left: trusting
a lying, murderous despot more than our president.)
Moreover, Truthout.org’s home page reads like a Democratic Party billboard
– again, offering no point-counterpoint analysis; no balanced news articles;
no proper substantiation for the outrageous claims these embittered Democrats
have leveled against Bush and other prominent Republicans; and no honest
or open discussions for Republicans or Libertarians who wish to debate them.
In fact, a brief scan of Truthout.org on Aug. 11 alone yielded the following
articles and editorials, expressing unconscionable angst toward Bush and
our U.S. troops (who daily risk their lives to protect the freedom of speech
that Truthout.org refuses to afford others):
- Soldiers Emails-Bring Us Home
- Family Shot Dead by Panicking US Troops
- Basra Protests Continue for Second Day
- Terror Group Seen as Back Inside Iraq
- Powell’s Battle Cry Fails Test of Time
- Depiction of Threat Outgrew Supporting Evidence
- Pentagon Office Home to Neo-Con Network
- Protest Groups Planning for Republican Convention
- The Niger Time Bomb
- Tongue-tied Arnie Takes Hits From Left and Right.
In addition, Truthout.org’s Aug. 9 edition also included this story from the London newspaper, The Independent:
“Israeli attacks on militants leave families homeless.” In addition
to its daily postings of the deaths of our brave U.S. troops, Truthout.org
seems to have a demented kind of Schadenfreude in doing it as well.
Not surprising, these articles are submitted by none other than the left-leaning, anti-war Democratic house organs of the New York Times, the Washington Post, Reuters, The Associated Press, the Los Angeles Times, and the radically Far Left Village Voice.
Rife with anti-American and anti-Semitic sentiment, Pitt’s columns are also
featured on such leftist Web sites as Palestinemonitor.org and the politically
In March, Pitt wrote about former public defender Andrew O’Connor of Santa
Fe, N.M., who was arrested for saying in an Internet chatroom that “Bush
is out of control.” According to Pitt, Secret Service agents later
arrested O’Connor in a public library for threatening the President.
In typical leftist defiance, Pitt wrote a follow-up column, inveighing:
Bush is out of control. I’ll say it again. George Bush is out
of control. I’m waiting for the black government cars to come squealing
up in front of my house, for the thump of the leather on my stairs, for the
sound of knuckles on my door, for the feel of steel braceleting my wrists,
for the smell of urine in some dank Federal holding cell as I listen to questions
from men who no longer feel the constricting boundaries of constitutional
law abutting their duties.
On Aug. 10, Pitt was the keynote speaker at the Veterans for Peace National
Convention (in San Francisco), which made up of primarily resentful, drafted
In his opening address, Pitt described his father’s hardships during a 1969
stint in the Vietnam War. But Pitt proceeded to go into this Bush-hating
the American people fully knew what this war in Iraq was really about, if
they fully knew what it means today to be a soldier in that part of the world,
they would tear the White House apart brick by brick. If the people
had but a taste of the horror and the lies, they would repudiate this administration
and all it stands for. They don’t know, because they have been fed
a glutton’s diet of misinformation and fraud. Changing that is why
we are here…
After listing a montage of alleged reasons why we shouldn’t have gone to war with Iraq, Pitt cited a Washington Post
article titled, “U.S. Shifts Rhetoric On its Goals in Iraq.” As usual, when
the leftist media refuse to substantiate its allegations against the Bush
Administration, the Post cited only an “unnamed source.”
Pitt, who admitted to never serving in the armed forces, however, told the group,
“I bet you all the money in my wallet that this 'source' was a man named
Richard Perle (chairman of the Defense Policy Board, an advisory panel to
the Pentagon) - who outlined the newest reasons for our war over there. 'That
goal is to see the spread of our values,' said this (unnamed) aide, 'and
to understand that our values and our security are inextricably linked.'"
What Pitt and other leftist extremists fail to comprehend is that if Bush
allegedly lied (and that’s a big “if” since it has never been proven), then
so did Bill Clinton. After all, Clinton went to war in 1998 using exactly
the same arguments as Bush. The only difference is Clinton never sought
congressional approval to validate his Wag-the-Dog bombings. But where
was the outrage on the Left over Clinton’s wars? Hollywood leftist
Janeane Garofalo has hypocritically claimed that criticizing Clinton’s bombings
on Iraq weren’t in style at the time.
But exposing Clinton as the real liar at least exonerates Bush from every
single lie the Left has told about the current administration. To read
about Clinton’s false intelligence lies, visit http://www.nationalreview.com/levin/levin.asp.
Another lie Truthout.org recently perpetuated is the Bush Administration
reportedly nurturing a “neo-conservative” presence at the White House.
Building on the infamous “vast right-wing conspiracy” scare tactic the Left
uses whenever they can’t effectively debate the issues, Truthout.org posted
an article by the Inter Press News Agency (IPS). (IPS is a left-wing
news clearinghouse, “recognized by the United Nations” and linked to several
leftist news groups who sponsor Third World countries.) According to
ISP’s Jim Lobe, the Bush Administration employs conservative think tanks
to advice him on foreign policy issues.
Lobe also cited Iran (which is part of the axis of evil – as if Iran is a
credible news source) in a deliberate attempt to undermine Bush’s military
successes, while ignoring Clinton’s culpability and dereliction of duty in
not thwarting terrorism when Clinton also passed up three separate opportunities
to capture Osama bin Laden: “Iran recently said it was prepared to turn over
five senior al-Qaeda figures, including the son of Osama bin Laden, who are
currently in its custody if Washington permanently shuts down an Iraqi-based
Iranian rebel group that is listed as a terrorist organization by the State
posting such articles on his Web site, Pitt seems to be endorsing Iran as
a legitimate news source to be believed and supported.

What Pitt and his readers fail to grasp is that by taking an extremely Far
Left stance against Bush and this country, they’re doing exactly what they
have falsely accused Bush of doing: practicing fascism.
That being said, Truthout.org is part of the anti-American, vitriolic ideology
that doesn’t tolerate dissidence, nor the free marketplace of ideas that
even remotely deviates from the Far Left agenda. If you are a Republican,
conservative or your last name happens to be “Bush,” you are already considered
Public Enemy #1.
What’s even more frightening is the fact that Pitt was once a Boston schoolteacher.
In turn, these young impressionable students were unwittingly subjected five
days a week to Pitt’s Far Left ideologies that likely permeate that particular
For example, although the TV series, Boston Public, is fictional, it nonetheless
underscores the often times radically out-of-control views of teachers who
have literally become surrogate parents by protesting with their students
and being supported by equally subversive school administrators. Therefore,
it would come as no surprise if Pitt were expressing his Far Left rhetoric
in his classroom – found so laden on Truthout.org.
In the end, Truthout.org is nothing but a pro-Communistic/Marxist, French-adoring,
anti-U.S., Bush-hating virtual gripe fest for U.S. traitors. Those
who visit Truthout.org are able to fuel their overt hatred for Bush and this
country with anti-American propaganda.
Since leftist-controlled Web sites like Truthout.org already know they have
lost the debate in the marketplace of ideas, they now have to take their
leftist crusade to the information superhighway: the place where they feel
the safest, and where they never have to be challenged face-to-face about
their outrageously propagated claims.
After all, the Left wouldn’t be raising such a ruckus – much less, even care
– if they didn’t feel so threatened by alternative voices of opinion who
seek out their constitutionally protected right to be heard. Inasmuch
as they claim to be for free speech, the Left only supports free speech when
it applies to them.
In other words, in the Left’s twisted world, conservatives and Libertarians
who don’t tow the leftist line have no say and therefore, have no place in
society. Despite the fact that the Left has had an ideological monopoly
in media, industry, business and entertainment for over 50 years, they still
want to believe they are the only true voice in mainstream America.
If Truthout.org genuinely wanted to “get the truth out,” as they claim on
their Web site, they would be exposing the lies and distortions of the Democratic
Party, instead of covering them up. They would also be allowing conservatives
and Libertarians to be heard.
For example, why doesn’t Truthout.org tell the truth about Gray Davis, who
recently validated drivers licenses for illegal aliens in a last-ditch effort
to garner support, as well as votes? Or, why hasn’t it told how a state
convoy carrying Davis was pulled over on Aug. 9 for speeding at 90 mph on
a major highway, allowing the “constitutional officer” (as reported by the
San Francisco Chronicle) to break the state’s own speed limit?
Or, what about telling Truthout.org readers that Davis deliberately concealed
his state’s disastrous financial condition in order to guarantee his re-election?
What’s more, how about California Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante, a Democratic
Gubernatorial candidate and the highest-ranking ethnic minority politician?
On Feb. 9, Bustamante used the “n” word in a speech at a prominent African-American
labor group banquet. Although Bustamante reportedly apologized for
his racial slur, he told reporters he meant to say “Negro” but said he “slipped.”
Or, why doesn’t Truthout.org tell their readers about Democratic presidential
candidate Dick Gephardt lying to his core constituents about his childhood
upbringing and about his father’s party affiliation?
So, why doesn’t Truthout.org post such straightforward news items about Democrats
– especially since it claims to want to “get the truth out?” Simple:
The Left has a problem with the truth. The Left’s dishonesty clouds
everything they do and say.
Because the Left doesn’t care about the truth, their unfounded lies about
conservative Republicans and Libertarians serve only to fuel their rage –
which is what most leftists live for every day. This is also why Democrats
and the leftist media are having a literal meltdown.
What Truthout.org needs to understand is that truth involves telling both
sides of the story, instead of only presenting one side in order to fulfill
a political agenda. It involves exposing all lies – not twisting the
truth to support those lies.
Daniel J. Flynn, author of Why the Left Hates America: Exposing The Lies That Have Obscured Our Nation’s Greatness,
said of the Left’s seething hatred for this country, “Clearly, it is the
Left that represents the greatest threat to free speech in America today.
At the same time progressives indignantly censor others, they confuse – deliberately,
perhaps – any criticism of their program with censorship. It is the height
of hypocrisy that people who exercise their free speech right to run down
this country then cry censorship when they are criticized for their irresponsibility.”
If Truthout.org really desired to “get the truth out,” it would stop promoting
the blatant lies and fabrications of the Democratic Party – and start exposing
