Note from Great Vocal Majority:

This story is a good example of the kind of bias that inflames people today against the media.  Donald Trump retweeted a quote today, which is a famous quote from the Italian Fascist dictator, Benito Mussolini.  There is nothing particularly witty or clever in the quote.  Nothing that suggested fascism or hatred or antipathy of any kind.  There was nothing particularly remarkable or political about the quote, except that it was said by Mussolini.

Contrast that with how Democrats, almost as a matter of routine, say even more outrageous things.  In 2014, Florida Democratic Congressman  said, “We proved Communism works.”  In 2009, Obama’s communications director, Anita Dunn, declared Chinese Communist leader, Chairman Mao Tse Tung, as “one of two political philosophers she turns to most.”  .  Not Jefferson, Madison, Adams, or Locke.  Instead, a man responsible for the murder of 70 million of his own countrymen.  Did Chuck Todd question Anita Dunn?  No.  She gets a pass.  Why?  Because it’s good being a Democrat.

There is so much corruption in today’s media, it’s no longer reliable.  Here is a short video of some of the problems in just the national media.


 

Chuck Todd confronted Donald Trump this morning about retweeting a parody account that attributed a Benito Mussolini quote to The Donald.

Trump said, “It’s okay to know it’s Mussolini. Look, Mussolini was Mussolini. It’s okay to––it’s a very good quote. It’s a very interesting quote, and I know––I saw it. I saw it. I know who said it, but what difference does it make whether it’s Mussolini or somebody else?”

The quote in question is “It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep,” and Trump finds it interesting.

And then this exchange happened:

TODD: Do you want to be associated with a fascist?

TRUMP: No, I want to be associated with interesting quotes.
