More From The NPR Lugenpresse Twins

“We can also see that family members of the Dorr’s have noticed. We know Ben Dorr has a Father-in-law — a reconstructionist Pastor — who has been following this broadcast closely. He’s taken to calling me (Lisa) and Chris the ‘Lugenpresse twins.’ ‘Lugenpresse’ means ‘Lying Press’ in German. The word was popularized by the Nazis and popped into American far right vernacular around 2016.”

1.) There is irony here if only because during this very same NPR broadcast the Lugenpresse Twins tell us that they learned about Confrontational Politics. They learned that those who practice Confrontational Politics consider it a success when they get so under the politician’s skin that the politicians begin to assiduously ignore them but better still is when the politicians begins yelling at them and denigrating them. Having read Richardson’s book, “Confrontational Politics” well over a decade ago I can only revel in the success that my confrontational approach here at Iron Ink had with the Lugenpresse Twins to the degree they believed they had to give me 18 seconds of air time in practicing their Lugenpresse attack on me by way of lexical innuendo.

2.) The Lugenpresse twins flatter themselves by suggesting that I was “following their broadcast closely.” They produced a format. I listened to the format and wrote down my impressions and a rebuttal. If listening to the show constitutes “following their broadcast closely” then color me a NPR fanboy. What I see is a continued practice on their part of habitual hyperbole. I listened to the show and they call it “following their broadcast closely.” The people can’t help themselves in their attachment to hyperbole. Who knew NPR hired Drama Queens?

3.) They mention I am a “reconstructionist Pastor” almost as if that is worse than being a Nazi. What would they ever think if they knew that I preached that the God who is has just wrath against sin and sinners that can only be assuaged by trusting in Christ alone? They’d probably look to see if I was somehow related to Himmler.

4.) Would have the Lugenpresse Twins given me a pass if I had used the French language and called them “presse couchee,” or if I had used Dutch and called them “liggende pers,” or if I had used Xhosa and called them “cinezela cinezela?”

5.) But if I had done that then they couldn’t do what their whole six part series excelled at. If I had used any language but German they couldn’t have used innuendo to hint that somehow because I used German it proved I had Nazi sympathies. I also smoke Cuban cigars so that must prove that I have communist sympathies. (But then again, having Communist sympathies would likely be acceptable to the Lying Press twins.)

6.) Since I grew up with German Grandparents it couldn’t be that I still remember snatches of German that I learned from my Grandparents from 55 years ago. Ah no… I must be some kind of Nazi sympathizer since I used the phrase “Lugenpresse.”

Ahh, well, NPR has finished their irresponsible Christ hating hit piece. They have finished their attempted assassination of Character by way of innuendo and guilt by association.

Oh… and I just can’t resist. Earlier in their broadcasts they hinted at the idea that the Dorr brothers weren’t really lobbyists and yet in their final broadcast they explicitly say that the Dorr Brothers will often work with a few “champion” legislators to push the legislation the Dorr Brothers desire to see passed. You’ll excuse me if I note that sure sounds like lobbying to me.

Oh… and the closing with your false and insincere sympathy was a cheap shot. You used family tragedy to suggest, by way of innuendo, that you were correct on your analysis on what you consider their recklessness.

You people have neither any honor, nor any shame.
