Vogue Magazine’s embarrassing love letter to Mrs. Assad

HOW does the Left affect Pop Culture? More and more, the Left IS Pop Culture, as this excellent post attests.

Thanks to Tom over at ‘Quiner’s Diner‘ for the legwork here…

A Heapin' Plate of Conservative Politics & Religion

Liberal chic is built on fluff.

How you feel trumps how you act.

Style supersedes substance.

Thought conformity is valued more than intelligent thinking.

Four media outlets help mold modern liberalism: the Huffington Post; the New York Times; Newsweek Magazine; and Vogue Magazine.

Vogue, with its 11.7 million readers, looms particularly large since liberal chic is such a fashion statement. Vogue has lovingly advanced the status of Michelle Obama and Texas human abortion advocate, Wendy Davis, on their pages. They championed another emerging icon two short years ago in a lavish spread, which, mysteriously, has been scrubbed from the internet.

Obama had to choose between Freedom and Tyranny in Syria. Guess which one he chose?

Remember back in 2009 after the Iranian elections, when Obama basically did nada to assist the Iranian protests? When our president punted on a chance to knock-out the Anti-American leadership in Iran, and refused to offer ANY real help to the protesters?

Remember how that all worked out? 

Well surprise, surprise, Obama is at it again. It appears he and he alone decided to not arm the Syrian rebels, against the advice of virtually EVERYONE in his administration.

According to Leon Panetta’s and Martin Demsey’s testimony this week, we had the State Department, The Joint Chiefs, the CIA and the Defense Department all in favor of supporting the Syrian rebels…and yet Obama said “uh, …nope“.
