HYPOCRISY 101: A Lesson
by Pauly Fongemie
Day of Penance
By now most of us know all too well that the vast establishment
media is full of deceit, distortion and derogation of the Christian.
Sometimes its self-appointed elites also lie boldly with no sense of
shame. This is hardly newsworthy.
However, the latest uproar over the Brian Williams [of NBC News]
debacle - he was found out in a big lie - gave me pause to think. It
isn't that he lied, I just assumed he was less than honest on occasion and thus never
tuned into NBC News. It is the disreputable discussion about what
penalty he should incur and if it was fair that NBC has suspended him
for now at least without pay, hardly a hardship, since he is worth
substantial millions. Because he is an accredited liberal, there is
much hand wringing by some of his confrères, how much he is respected
and admired and will be missed. If the lie he told was from the mouth
of anyone but a liberal, CURTAINS immediately! No examination, no
Of course this is typical of the major media, hypocrisy on steroids,
again, nothing new, and sadly what we have come to expect as the
Usually this sort of stuff would be swept away in a cover blitz knowing
the public has a short memory span when it comes to important
matters. If it is a trifle, the public seems to have long term
memory retention, for some reason that escapes me. It is a corollary of
the inversion theorem and the disappearing context. If a conservative
has stumbled, the context is removed; if a liberal has, not only is the
context the headline, it is manufactured if necessary, as well as the
malingering someone else's fault, if at all possible to effect; the
greater the threat to the natural law and the Republic, the greater the
downsizing of the reportage and vice versa.
It is less a matter of what is being said, but who is saying it that
tells the real story - this a pretty reliable axiom to keep in mind. It
is all political now and with a vengeance, Truth be damned!
But because of the nature and obvious context of the lie, NBC had to do
something or lose what little credibility it still maintains. Hence the
suspension without pay. The cries from his fellow "journalists" can be summed as follows:
severe punishment, but deserving, while making sure to interject that
they hoped he would be back.
Look, I don't like NBC News, but I have no personal animus
against Williams as
an individual, and I don't like to see anyone be humiliated in public,
period. Unfortunately sometimes it cannot be avoided, such is reality.
As Christ taught us when judging in the external forum, "By their
fruits thou shalt know them."
But this only part of the story. The bigger picture is that in the
mass media, telling lies is actually no big deal unless it is
the smallest fib from a conservative or anyone who refuses to trash the
natural law, whether an accredited conservative or not, The Williams
case is one of the exceptions notable enough to prove the rule. Because he was held accountable, this was the shocker, not the magnitude of the lie, all claims aside.
In fact it is more often the case that telling the truth is a detriment
to one's career and reputation, such is the downward ethic spiral the
USA is in.
At the present time the criterion that must be met by anyone who
wants to keep his position is that he must endorse "homosexual
coupling". He can tell a whopper - and it is a damnable lie, indeed,
that sodomy is a right to be glorified and honored. He can be the
biggest montebank in the country, but he is tolerated at least; but if
a good man dares to breach
this "social contract", once tacit, now established more or less
officially, and tell the truth, that he upholds the natural law
, while not engaging in busybody tactics, he is asked to leave his job immediately or feels so uncomfortable in the milieu
he finds himself that he voluntarily withdraws. There is no
understanding, no forgiveness, no sympathy, just revulsion and
resentment that a co-worker would have the audacity to remain steadfast
and loyal to the Divine and natural law on principle. Case after case
the person who is not for officially-sanctioned sodomy is dispossessed
and disowned, a non-person. If he endorses the same, his fall from
grace is seldom forthcoming; he can refuse to pay his taxes and still
maintain a position at the IRS, for instance; as long as one goes along
with the Zeitgeist, one gets along per usual, a noted exception here and there that proves the rule once again.
The groundswell for sodomy's rally call is now certainly a runaway
train. Anyone who aspires to be someone must hop aboard. Anyone who
does not do so is guilty of hate speech if he has the courage to speak
the Truth, without hate in his heart, just love of the Truth for the
glory of God and love of his fellow men whose dignity is violated when
the Truth is vitiated to assuage badly deformed consciences - while
those who truly hate those who tell the truth about man and the natural
law, are hailed as heroes. Another aspect of the inversion theorem.
George Orwell was prescient! These are remarkble Orwellian times. We
cannot escape the total all pervasive hypocrisy, and by now surely the
irony ought not elude us either!
Free speech? There is no such thing anymore, it comes at a high price and only the valiant need apply
. For the deceivers and
destroyers of decency the cost is not only free, it is dirt cheap for
the exchange and only the habitual charlatan thinks he is accomplishing
something worthwhile, deeds he can be proud of!
I repeat: We cannot escape the total all pervasive hypocrisy, and by now surely the irony ought not elude us either!
