Time’s “Person of the Year”

Posted by on Dec 14, 2011 at 8:06 am

The photo is all you need to know. Frankly, I wouldn’t wipe my ass with Time magazine. Needless to say, their credibility is in the crapper.

“The Protester” has been named Time’s “Person of the Year” for 2011.

The selection was announced Wednesday on NBC’s “The Today Show.”

The magazine cited dissent across the Middle East that has spread to Europe and the United States and says these protesters are reshaping global politics.

Guys who crap on the street are reshaping global politics? Really?
“There was a lot of consensus among our people,” Stengel told the TODAY anchors as he revealed the magazine’s cover. “It felt right.”
Doesn’t mean it is right. But that’s how it is with these lefty propagandists. As long as it feels right, then it’s OK.
Remember back when Tea Partiers were protesting a lot? Back then they were a threat to democracy or something.

    Growing up, I was a big news, journalism, history buff (still am really), and I actually collected TIME Magazine covers as they came.

    Conservative though I have been forever, I still read all the big media until after 9/11 when the blogosphere came along and I realized that, not only did I not need them, but their relentless advancement of the leftist narrative was for the first time really and truly spelled out in real time. (For which we ALL owe people like JWF our eternal gratitude.)

    So I will never forget a year or so back when I just happened to pick up TIME for the first time in ages. You know what thought immediately went through my head?

    An old friend with terrible cancer, or perhaps meth addiction. I last saw him at 180 pounds, now he’s a gaunt and scraggly-haired 120. TIME was now as thick as a Marvel Spiderman comic off the rack, and about as relevant. I was not about to cry, but it really was like seeing an old childhood friend who was not long for this world. And, given it’s illustrious history, it IS tragic, it really is. Same thing with America’s premier socialist journal — Newsweek. I don’t lament the meth they have been peddling of late, I sure do lament their once grand role in the history of the Republic.

    And I said a week ago, that if TIME declares OWS “People of the Year” or some nonsense, then I give them one to two years, tops, and they are over and out of business. Done. And here they are.


    Never forget the number of Stalin’s victims, standing back to the wall, who shouted “long live Stalin!” as the Stalin’s bullets crashed into them.

    Uh, Gabby Giffords, Steve Jobs…?
    I think they did it just for the PR controversy. Desperation. They really wanted to name the OWS protesters only, but they needed the political cover of the Egyptians.

    The ‘protester’ in the picture could have used Time and kept the skid marks to a minimum.

    Do yourself a favor and add some comments to the ones I left on their website about how lame their decision was to try and prop up a movement of the same quality folks like the one pictured above.
