'MILF': How the MSM Uses Popular Culture To Do Their Dirty Work

Piers Morgan is a CNN primetime host, a valued position at a cable news network that likes to present itself as down-the-middle, objective, centrist, and fair … everything it says their competition is not. But if you watch the clip below, you have to ask yourself why a supposedly objective news outlet would host a comedian famous for being vulgar and openly hostile towards conservative women.

And it gets worse…

For those of you who live the clean life, a “MILF” is a “Mother I’d Like to F—.” Now, you can’t blame Bill Maher for being Bill Maher. In fact, it’s this kind of rabid soundbite that makes him a regular guest on these kinds of shows. But why is he a guest?

Well, if you notice, when Maher refers to Governor Palin and Congresswoman Bachmann as MILFs, Morgan audibly chuckles.

That explains a lot.

Using Bill Maher and Jon Stewart and David Letterman and Tina Fey and other left-wing showbiz types is all part of the MSM’s overall gameplan to personally destroy conservatives. Phase one is elevating left-wing celebrities as serious commentariats by having them on as guests or presenting clips of their work or employing them as permanent hosts of “The View.” Phase two is for the MSM to use their commentary/comedy as a way to practice the politics of personal destruction. Case in point: Maher’s demeaning and diminishing of Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann — two serious, accomplished, and savvy leaders — into sexual objects. This is nothing more than a different play from the same playbook that found the MSM using Tina Fey’s Palin impersonation over and over and over again until it stuck in the minds of some voters. “Saturday Night Live” has less than 10 million viewers a week. But thanks to the mainstream media’s obsession with destroying Palin, EVERYONE saw Fey’s impersonation.

This is no accident.

What popular culture allows the MSM to do is to push destructive narratives against conservatives (especially women) and then wash their hands of the crime with a shrug and, “Lighten up, it’s just a comedian.”

Obviously, today’s narrative push is to personally destroy Bachmann (and there’s been a three-year push to destroy Palin) — two genuine threats to a failed president’s re-election chances and an existential threat to a Democrat Party that can’t operate with 1% fewer female voters. And so yesterday in the afternoon you had Whoopi Goldberg turning Bachmann’s concern for the destruction of the modern American black family into some kind of racial incident and in the evening you had Maher sexually degrading her.

Narrative. Narrative. Narrative.

As we’re seeing with the Palin documentary “The Undefeated,” as soon as the MSM starts to talk about ideas, positions and records, a politically attractive candidate emerges. Same goes for Rep. Bachmann … and that can never, ever be allowed to happen. Solution: the MSM employs mercenaries from the world of popular culture, elevates them with their brand, and then stands back and lets them say everything they would like to but can’t — if they want to retain their weapon labelled “objectivity.”

I can hear the Left’s response already. “Well, Fox News puts Greg Gutfeld and Dennis Miller on their primetime shows.” Yes, that’s true. But I’ve never heard either of them stoop to the kind of cruel and dehumanizing ad hominem we constantly see from the Left.

Regardless, how long do you think Gutfeld and Miller would be around if either one referred to the First Lady as a MILF.

To be clear, Fey, Garofalo, Maher and the rest have every right to say what they want. I have no issue with a comedian being a comedian. That’s what they do. That’s who they are. I may disagree and even personally dislike some of them, but the standards we hold entertainers to is something entirely different from the standards held by the news media.

What I’m seeing, however, is the MSM using the celebrity loophole in order to ignore those standards. In their minds, it helped to put Obama in the White House in ’08 and might just help to keep the failure in place for a second term.
