Rachel Maddow, Your Attempt At Slander Failed
July 18, 2013 by Wayne Allyn Root
Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. And I’m under massive attack by the mainstream media and Barack Obama’s defenders. (Oh right, I repeated myself). I must be doing something right. I must be scaring the Obama socialist cabal to death. I must be hitting a bulls-eye with my opinions.
This past week, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow tried to defame and slander me in a bizarre, rambling 15-minute diatribe on her national TV show. Fifteen minutes on national TV about me. Thank you, Rachel, that’s quite an honor coming from you.
Maddow even gave me a name, “birther.” It sounds similar to “murderer,” except it means only that I dared ask questions about Obama. Funny enough, none of those questions has ever involved his birth or birth certificate. Never. Not once. But hysterical defenders of Obama never let a fact get in the way of a good slander.
Rather than attacking a patriotic American, shouldn’t journalists like Maddow be asking questions of the President? Do the answers to the questions I asked scare her that much? Am I getting that close to the truth? Do I pose that much of a threat?
Perhaps there is a connection to the media’s refusal to ask these questions of our current President and the problems we’re experiencing:
- An economy in decline.
- No jobs.
- Our own government now violating our rights at every turn.
- It’s using the Internal Revenue Service to intimidate and punish us.
- It’s using the Environmental Protection Agency to bankrupt the energy industry.
- It’s using the National Security Agency to spy on us
- And it’s using the Federal Reserve to bury our children in debt.
- And it will perhaps soon use drones to kill us — without holding a trial or even hearing the charges.
Every patriotic American — and especially every legitimate journalist — has the responsibility to question the background, character and policies of the person who is the CEO of the world’s most powerful economy, the commander of the world’s most powerful military and the person with his finger on the nuclear button.
Yet if one American actually dares to ask questions about our President, suddenly all hell breaks loose. He gets called names. He is slimed and slandered.
I am that one courageous American. I have many questions about Obama’s background, actions and policies. I’m willing to boldly stand up in public and question and criticize the President. The result: First came vicious IRS attacks. Then, after I beat them again and again, next came the leftist national media attack. Someone is very worried about Wayne Allyn Root.
Saul Alinsky is one of Obama’s heroes and mentors. His book Rules for Radicals, is Obama’s bible, even though Alinsky’s masterpiece is dedicated to Lucifer, the devil. Funny, I’ve never heard the media mention that little fact.
Alinsky’s philosophy is to destroy and discredit any conservative who dares to question you by demonizing him. The strategy is to call him vile names and tell lies, because the end justifies the means. Humiliate and intimidate him so badly, the critic will hide under the covers, never to be seen again. In this case, Maddow’s goal is not only to destroy Wayne Allyn Root, but also to warn other conservatives that if they dare question the President, they too will get the same treatment. So stop asking questions!
My personal story is the achievement of the American dream. The son of a blue-collar butcher, I graduated from Columbia University (class of ’83 with my classmate Obama). Through discipline, sacrifice, personal responsibility, work ethic, enthusiasm for capitalism and a relentless attitude, I became a successful entrepreneur. This has allowed me to give more time to my passion: politics. I became the Vice Presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party, a media personality on FOX News and conservative talk radio, and the author of the national bestseller The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide. I am also the home-school dad of four beautiful children, including a daughter at Harvard and Oxford.
Because of all this success and my media megaphone, Obama’s defenders have me on their radar. I’ve got a bulls-eye on my back. I’m making a difference. And I’m obviously scaring powerful people on the left. In one rambling, raving diatribe on national TV, Maddow slimed me and reduced me to one curse word: “birther.” Let me repeat: I’ve never been a birther. Ever. Not once have I ever questioned any aspect of Obama’s birth or birth certificate.
Alinsky would be proud. This is how you destroy your political opposition, silence dissent and socialize America. This is how big government takes over a once-proud Nation of individuals.
Maddow isn’t alone. In the past few weeks, since I’ve asked critical questions and made common-sense predictions about Obama’s true agenda, Obama’s IRS scandal and the mysterious story of Obama’s years at Columbia University, I’ve come under withering attack from across the liberal media. Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, Mother Jones magazine, liberal bloggers and now Maddow and MSNBC have made attacking Wayne Allyn Root a national pastime. The attacks intensified as The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide rose on the bestseller list. Coincidence?
Last month, even CNN host Piers Morgan tried to discredit me and bait me into a slugfest on CNN. At least he had the class to do it to my face. Give Morgan credit. Maddow, on the other hand, wouldn’t take the chance to debate me face to face. Rachel, why are you so afraid of the truth?
Maddow gave me so much airtime she might as well have named me “the most evil man in the world.” I’ve been in the TV and entertainment business my whole life. I know full well that no TV host would ever dedicate 15 minutes of a national TV show to one outspoken critic of the President. Not unless they are seriously worried. Not unless he’s hit a bulls-eye.
Maddow’s attack on me is certainly a show of desperation. I’m obviously getting too close to the truth. In the military they say, “You know you’ve reached the target when you start getting hit by flak.”
If I’m so unimportant, why is the liberal media so intent on destroying me? If my instincts about Obama’s scandals are so wrong, why are they so intent on discrediting me? If I’m just some kook, why would Maddow even pay attention to me? Why give me so much precious time on national TV? Does Maddow read PersonalLiberty.com? I didn’t know liberals cared so much what we said here.
But perhaps Maddow has spilled the beans. Perhaps this is a clue that I’m not so unimportant. Perhaps the left knows that I’ve stumbled onto the storyline that could destroy the Obama Presidency. Perhaps they’re afraid far too many Americans are reading about Obama’s purposeful plan to overwhelm the system and destroy capitalism that I unveiled in The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide.
Perhaps they are worried my story about the IRS scandal has legs. I was the first in the country to report a year ago that this IRS scandal is massive and involves the IRS going after individual critics of the President and top GOP donors.
Perhaps my gut instincts about how Obama might have committed fraud to gain entrance to Columbia University is striking chords. Something about Wayne Root has set off alarm bells among Obama’s defenders. They are sweating and panicking. They are desperate to discredit and destroy my reputation.
Rachel, methinks thou protests too much. Remember: I’m from Las Vegas and play a mean game of poker. You’ve tipped your hand. You’re playing with a pair of 2s, you know I’ve got a full house, and you and your liberal friends are obviously desperate to bluff me out of the game.
Newsflash: You failed.
You’ll be sad to know I played to full houses, standing room only, at both FreedomFest and the GOP Women’s Gala in Las Vegas this weekend. The GOP event had to turn guests away. And your slander helped raise thousands of dollars at this weekend’s GOP Women’s Gala. By the way, the highest bid of the event was for a private dinner at the home of Wayne Allyn Root. Sorry, Rachel: You lose.
I draw three conclusions:
- There is a God.
- Alinsky is rolling over in his grave.
- Thank you, Rachel, from the bottom of my Republican conservative heart. You’re the gift that keeps on giving.
I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week right back here. Same time, same place. God Bless America.
