David Fischer, the Associated Press and Yahoo News should be ashamed of themselves. They have stretched so far to create a negative headline about GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney an eighteen wheeler can be driven through the holes in the story.
For years Fischer, AP and Yahoo have consistently and willfully ignored the fact that in his autobiography “Dreams From My Father” their dearly beloved leader freely admitted to using drugs many times. “I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years,” he wrote about his days in college. “Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it.”
However, like rabid dogs, they have jumped all over Romney for meeting Marco Rubio at a public juice stand, making short speeches and then handing out juices to the eager crowd.
What was the headline?
“Host for Romney event is a convicted drug dealer”
The truth is: Reinaldo Bermudez, owner of El Palacio del los Jugos, did serve three years in federal prison after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute cocaine back in 1999.
Bermudez has repaid society for that crime. He has served the time. He is now legally engaged in conducting a successful small business that provides for a need in the community.
In a statement to the Miami New Times, Bermudez said “Thankfully, we all have the opportunity in this country to re-enter society when we’ve done something wrong.”
Have Fischer, AP and Yahoo never heard of redemption in America? Apparently, by members of the self-imagined, self-appointed intellectual elite, redemption is not bequeathed upon Conservatives. It is reserved solely for “their people”.
For proud card carrying members of the “progressive” Party Pravda it is perfectly fine to ignore that by his own admission their anointed, almost god-like hero engaged in criminal activity on multiple occasions, but when their target who does not smoke or drink makes one speech and hands out drinks at a juice stand it is “newsworthy” because the stand’s owner once committed a crime for which he has long since made restitution.
A “progressive” can smoke pot, sniff cocaine, whatever they want, admit to it…and never be brought to task or to justice by Pravda. A Conservative is peripherally associated with someone who paid for their mistake and it is elevated to the level of high crime.
Keep an eye on the horizon for indications that Fischer or AP and Yahoo employees are Mike Vick fans.Subscribe to our Morning Briefing and get the news delivered to your inbox before breakfast!
