We’ve got a little Congressional special election going on over on the west coast of Florida to fill the seat left by the passing of Florida Statesman Bill Young, Chairman of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee. Republican David Jolly is running against Liberal Democrat Alex Sink.And the liberal media hypocrisy in covering politics is in full flower. Sink makes frankly bigoted comments on the subject of immigration reform, but of course the media doesn’t call her out on it.
Watch the video. You can’t make something like this up, folks.
During a heated debate against Republican candidate David Jolly on Tuesday, Sink said “We have a lot of employers over on the beaches that rely upon workers, and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean out hotel rooms or do our landscaping?”
Earlier this year, according to Newsmax, Sink called a Congressional Budget Office report indicating that Obamacare would reduce workers’ hours as being an “exciting prospect” because people would have more choice about how they work. “Over the years, particularly the past five six years when we’ve been in this horrible economic environment, I’ve had so many people express to me, ‘Boy, Alex, I’d love to start a business or I’d love to change jobs, but I can’t because I’ve got good health insurance at my workplace now. I’m stuck in a dead-end job I’m not very happy in, but I have to stay here.’ ”Message to former Florida Chief Financial Officer Sink: the economy stinks because of the president you support and his policies – at least you are honest enough to admit that fact — but wait until all those employer mandate delays from his highness run out.
But can any of you imagine what would be the lead story on every liberal media outlet if the statement made by Sink was made by a Republican – even worse, a Tea Party conservative? Liberals are going nuts about two closed traffic lanes in New Jersey but could you conceive the “feigned outrage” over a statement such as Sink’s?
Of course, you don’t hear a peep about what she said. And those pesky FCC newsroom monitors certainly wouldn’t want her comments to be spread far and wide across the fruited plain, now would they?
