I think of my great-frandfather Harry Albright during times of international crisis. He had a theory that “most people don’t pay attention to overseas politics because they can’t pronounce the names of those people.”
Considering the state of education in this country, Grandpa Albright seems more like a prophet every day, as the media continues to ignore the repeated attempts of a Marxist election theft in Honduras:
A Spanish Catalan newspaper is reporting that Honduran authorities have seized computers found in the Presidential Palace belonging to deposed president Mel Zelaya. Taking a page right out of the leftist dictator’s handbook, these computers contained the official and certified results of the illegal constitutional referendum Zelaya wanted to conduct that never took place. The results of this fraudulent vote was tilted heavily in Zelaya’s favor, ensuring he could go ahead and illegally change the constitution so he could remain in power for as long as he wanted to. ACORN, I’m sure, is taking notes.
Babalu Blog continues to wonder how long the American media will ignore this story, which has been in the Spanish Media for a week now:
It seems either the English-speaking media is still sleeping since Friday night or they can’t find anyone who speaks Spanish. Two days have gone by and no one has been able to translate the numerous articles that have come out around the world regarding the seizure of computers in Zelaya’s Presidential Palace containing the results of a referendum vote that never took place.
As of this morning, after spending a couple of hours scouring English news sources, I have yet to find one single mention of this very important development in the Honduran crisis. Only the USA Today posted a one-paragraph article that links to a blog post that contains a translation of the original article from Europapress I posted yesterday, and could hardly be considered a news story. In addition, you can search the USA Today news site and this story does not come up in the results.
Perhaps he can’t pronounce “Zelaya.” Maybe he likes Marxists. Or maybe he just thinks Honduras is the 57th state. Who knows with this guy anymore.
