David Brock is the founder of the ultra-liberal Media Matters for America. At one time, he played the role of a conservative journalist during the 1990s when he wrote the book The Real Anita Hill (1993) and authored the Troopergate story which led to Paula Jones filing a lawsuit against Bill Clinton. Brock is like Arianna Huffington, co-founder of the news website The Huffington Post, who also masqueraded as a conservative before returning to her liberal roots and becoming a mouthpiece for leftist causes. Like Brock, Huffington is a political opportunist.
David Brock has had it in for conservatives ever since he revealed that he came out as a homosexual and was not embraced by his conservative friends. He disavows his former political tactics as a conservative in his book Blinded by the Right: The Conscience of an Ex-Conservative. The book has been described as “a public act of political atonement.” Here’s how Frank Bruni of The New York Times describes Brock’s motives for righting Blinded by the Right:
“Brock wants us to know that he did people wrong, and that he recognizes it. He wants us to understand that he was chasing fame and fleeing personal demons, and that the velocity of those efforts distracted him from the unwarranted damage he caused. And he wants us to believe him.”
One would think that such a confession would lead him to change his tactics. But it hasn’t happened as anyone who has ever read anything from Media Matters knows. Now we learn that Brock had a very specific agenda in starting the non-profit, tax-exempt Media Matters. It would be fighting against businesses, wealthy Americans, and conservative Christians.
“Media Matters for America (MMA) believes that news reporting and analysis by the American media, with its eye on profit margin and preservation of the status quo, has become biased,” read the group’s application, obtained by The Daily Caller, “It is common for news and commentary by the press to present viewpoints that tend to overly promote corporate interests, the rights of the wealthy, and a conservative, Christian-influenced ideology.”
Does any of this sound eerily familiar? This was the same tactic used by the Nazis against Jews. “The Nazi regime employed propaganda to impress upon German civilians and soldiers that the Jews were . . . dangerous enemies of the German Reich.” Jews were political scapegoats, a religious race to blame for Germany’s troubles. Media Matters and other liberal groups are following a similar methodology. Unless Christians can be shut up, we will never have any social progress.
