Accuracy in Media

We applaud the liberal media for doing their job in covering news that is relevant, such as the recent vandalism of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. after mob violence led to one civilian death in Charlottesville, Virginia.

CNN, CBS News, USA Today and other liberal media outlets covered the news about a vandal spray-painting the memorial.

Why is this important? The outrage on social media surrounding Charlottesville was rational until vandals began to deface monuments across the nation, including the Lincoln Memorial in the nation’s capital.

Also, it highlights the concerns about U.S. education, where people equate Abraham Lincoln with slavery, which could not be further from the truth.

    “In his speech on the Dredd Scott decision Lincoln said, in opposition to Chief Justice Taney (of the1857 Supreme Court Dredd Scott decision [that Negroes had no rights]), that the rights enunciated in the Declaration of Independence were understood by its authors
    to apply to all men, Negroes included. That Negroes in the United States were
    not then enjoying the rights with which they had been endowed by God and nature
    did not mean, therefore, that they were not understood to possess them…”
    [as the Black Power leaders of the 70s and 80s supposed was the Founders’
    understanding, since they did not immediately free their slaves ]…

    “…If equal rights were not then enjoyed by Negroes,” said Lincoln, “neither were they enjoyed by all whites… The Declaration,” said Lincoln,’ meant to declare the right so that
    enforcement might follow, as fast as circumstances should permit…”

    ~ Harry V. Jaffa,in the introduction to his book ”Crisis of the House Divided, pp. 12-13

    [Jaffa then goes on about how the Supreme Court in 1954 did not share Lincoln’s view of the Declaration, and actually justified (20-30 years later) the Black Power leaders’ cynical
    understanding of the Founders’ intention as expressed in The Declaration because]
    “the [1954] court implied [ in Brown vs. Topeka Board. of
    Education,] that the Constitution is not based on any unchanging
    principles at all…” [such as equal rights…] …” In the same way,” Jaffa continues, “the
    great Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1965 were then seen … merely as
    registers of pressures generated by protest movements…[instead of as ] a
    successful appeal to the conscience of the nation [as expressed in its
    foundational legal document, the Declaration of Independence… ] ” Ibid., pp 12-13
