Liz Cheney: The Media’s Own Elian Gonzalez

Liz Cheney: The Media’s Own Elian Gonzalez

Remember Elian Gonzalez?

Well, if you’re my age or thereabouts, you probably do.

Elian Gonzalez was the little Cuban boy whose mother drowned at sea while the two of them made the dangerous trip to Florida back in 1999.

With his mother dead, little Elian was taken to relatives in Miami. Meanwhile, back home in Cuba, his father was demanding Elian be returned to him. A court battle ensued between Elian’s Miami and Cuban relatives.

Finally, in January 2000, the Clinton administration caved to Cuba and Attorney General Janet Reno sent armed officers into the house to retrieve the boy. You remember that iconic picture of the terrified Elian Gonzalez crammed in the closet with his relative as an agent in full tactical gear pointed a rifle at him.

When Elian Gonzalez returned to Cuba, the Castro regime wasted no time parading the kid and his father around. Elian became one hell of a powerful propaganda tool for the ruling regime against those evil, evil Americans.

And yesterday, as I sat watching a clip from Liz Cheney’s interview on ABC’s This Week, I couldn’t help but think of Elian Gonzalez.

Sure, she was rejected by Wyoming voters, but in her defeat, Liz Cheney has become a powerful propaganda tool for the anti-Republican media, eager to parade her in front of cameras to rail against those evil, evil Republicans.

Elian Gonzalez was only seven when Castro deployed him as a useful propaganda tool.

What’s Liz Cheney’s excuse?

The woman is in her fifties. Yet she lets herself be used for the corporate news media’s perpetual propaganda war against the Republican Party.

She even burps out the media’s approved phrase “election deniers.”

What an unbelievably odious woman.

But if you’re going to be the media’s Elian Gonzalez, I suppose you have to adopt the regime’s talking points.

The media, fully on the side of the Democrat Party, is delighted to have a Republican turncoat to echo all their slanderous attacks against the opposition party.

An actual “principled conservative” would never allow herself to be used in this way. But Liz Cheney isn’t a “principled” anything. She’s a grasping, bitter, resentful woman who decided if Republicans don’t want her, then she’ll burn down the whole party.

She’s like an American pilot shot down by the enemy who records a message condemning the US while praising his captors with one minor difference. Unlike the pilot who was coerced with threats of torture or death, Liz Cheney is doing this willingly.

Expect the media to trot out their Beltway Elian Gonzalez every week, week in and week out, from now until the Midterm elections.

And this loathsome, bitter fishwife will play her role willingly and with a song in her heart.

    I can’t believe that no one has pointed out that in spite of what Cheney claims Lincoln NEVER lost a Senate election. Until 1913 Senators were appointed by the state legislators. Check out the 17th Amendment. Cheney’s a lying, uneducated, stupid bitch.

      Not necessarily. She more likely is counting on ignorance of the people to make the Lincoln story work.

    Elian and his mother would never have left Cuba without the father’s blessings. Anyone who says differently is ignorant of Cuban culture.

    Georgia has their Tank, it seems only fair that Virginia now has a blimp
