I am trying to understand the viewpoint of some of the more liberal media including The economist, The New York Times and the Washington Post. And like the demonstrations taking part by college students who chose not to even vote, the arrogance and hypocrisy elements are – difficult.
A journalist/opinion-op person who writes for The New York Times, is quite unabashed in his derision and choice of words concerning Trump. His latest barrage is about how “we can not just get along”… which of course was the Obama and Clinton mantra that he seems to feel only applies if his team wins!
While Trump is attempting to mend, journalists continue to divide. And for some reason Trumps’ attempts to mend are not met with grace, but instead even greater hostility, as though offering a hand was an evil thing.
To be sure, we don’t know exactly what Trump will do his first months in office. We do know that some of the more major issues including healthare, securing the border, and terrorism are at the top. But the mess left by Obama, the racism, the division, the daft teachings of our educators, are quite embedded and a generation of uneducated twenty somethings makes us gulp back bile.
But it only takes a few seconds to look back at previous articles written by this NYT man to fully embrace the hypocrisy. Hiss op-ed when the rave of election fraud was being discussed before the election was a vilification of the ‘fake news’ conspiracy lunatics. After the election, given his team lost, suddenly the shift is to declare ‘election fraud’!
I still believe that election fraud occurred. The problem? All the fraud that was uncovered pointed exclusively to the Democrats. All the fraud that was uncovered in the Obama election cycle – pointed to the Democrats. Reams of it. He denigrates Trump for not accepting his ‘Loss’ graciously. And in the end, this man makes a fool of himself.
The media seem to have conveniently forgotten the massive manipulation perpetrated at the highest levels for decades; Operation Mockingbird. The media that willingly colluded included, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Newsweek, Miami News and CBS. They were used because of their aggressive liberal stance and anti-Soviet rhetoric.
Then there was/is Operation Earnest Voice which specifically targets international social media censorship. It is funded as a propaganda tool.
There is sockpuppetry which has been used to extol one business while vilifying another. The concept is also used by the UK government, by journalists, and the EU governments, to create false accounts that lobby for a particular government idea or cause, when the lobbying is actually derived from the government itself.
There is Merkel telling the German media what they can and cannot print with respect to immigrant problems and related rapes and sexual assaults. That is media manipulation.
The BBC, state owned, which filters it’s content based on what the UK government determines is allowable.
These are the sources of “Fake News”.
So why is the new obsession all about vilifying Russia propaganda? Because that is in line with the EU and US propaganda… It’s one propaganda vilifying another who vilifies another until there is no reality left. Just a bunch of puppets. At some point, the train will either come to a screeching halt, or a complete derailment.
In the meantime, most Americans search and search for news that has some semblance of reality and not propaganda. Are their fake stories circulating? Of course! Unfortunately, more often than not, the source is a liberal format. Unfortunately, the demand for hate and vilification is more often than not sourced back to Liberal agendas. Why?
I believe the moral and ethical value structure that is embraced by our country has been corrupted. Too frequently, the Donna Braziles of the world justify their corruption as for The Greater Good, as defined – by them. And they feel no remorse, no regret, just like the rioters destroying our businesses and our property.
It used to be that when someone was asked if they understood ‘right from wrong’, those that didn’t were considered mentally impaired.
