When the Left loses the war of ideas, they resort to violence and demands for suppression.

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman on Tuesday said it was a “moral issue” for the press to censor conservative views about the debt ceiling.
Quite shockingly, the Nobel laureate took to his blog to complain that the news media are being too fair and balanced in their coverage of this highly contentious issue:
“Watching our system deal with the debt ceiling crisis — a wholly self-inflicted crisis, which may nonetheless have disastrous consequences — it’s increasingly obvious that what we’re looking at is the destructive influence of a cult that has really poisoned our political system.
And no, I don’t mean the fanaticism of the right. Well, OK, that too. But my feeling about those people is that they are what they are; you might as well denounce wolves for being carnivores. Crazy is what they do and what they are.
No, the cult that I see as reflecting a true moral failure is the cult of balance, of centrism.”
Wow! Balance and centrism is a “true moral failure”:
“So what do most news reports say? They portray it as a situation in which both sides are equally partisan, equally intransigent — because news reports always do that.”
I’m not sure what news reports Krugman has been watching, but the ones we’ve been monitoring at NewsBusters concerning this matter have been anything but balanced.
The take for weeks has been that taxes must be raised to solve this problem and that it is the Republicans – and, in particular, Tea Party freshmen in the House – that are refusing to “compromise.”
A new Media Research Center study on this issue found that ABC, CBS, and NBC have consistently cast the GOP as the villains in this debate.
During the uproar over ObamaCare being rammed through the Dem-controlled House and Senate, WaPo hack Richard Cohen opined that there is just too much democracy in America. Libtard Chris Matthews also has a major beef with ‘objective journalism’. Obama thinks it would be so much easier if he could bypass Congress to make his own laws and if he were the leader of a totalitarian regime.
Krugman shut down the comments on his blog after several posters handed his ass to him over his bat-shit crazy Keynesian economics.
The Left has a big problem with the concept of a Democratic Republic. It’s diametrically opposed to their ideas of socialist control….of everything.
Krugman aka “Nobel laureate”, is a mealy-mouthed little prick who has no credibility. The Nobel prize has been reduced to a sick joke.
Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, and B. Hussein Obama are among the recipients. That fact alone should be enough to abolish the prize and the intellectually bankrupt committee that hands out the award.
Freedom of speech is a double edged sword, Krugman. It provides a wide open forum for discourse, no matter how raucous, and it also gives assclowns like you the opportunity to show off your fascist side. When it comes to crazy, no one does it like you.
UPDATE: Joe Scarborough ripped Krugman a new asshole:
……If you write the same column for a decade and blame everything including earthquakes halfway across the world on Republican extremism, at some point, somebody could look at an op-ed and go, “Eh. Perhaps there’s a seed of truth to that.”……Let me just say, he is influential because if you’re a blogger, and you’re still living in your mom’s basement, and you got Cheetos all over the keyboard, you type in your underwear…you look at Paul Krugman and you think, “He is my hero,”…
