It’s hilarious that any of you actually think any of it matters and that maybe if we just reason with the media and be nice enough to them and prove them wrong with “FACTS!” that they’ll eventually start being honest and/or fair.
Don Lemon credibly accused of sexual assault? — SHUT UP.
Chris Cuomo responding to free speech with threats of violence? — SHUT UP.
April Ryan paying people to rough up journalists? — SHUT UP.
The Dow Jones gained 18,000 points in its first 120 years, and then 7,000+ in the 3 short years since Trump was elected? — SHUT UP, the economy is terrible right now and it’s Trump’s fault, you moron.
The recession Obama “inherited” was actually one he caused with Democrat policies that sought to socialize our housing sector? — SHUT UP, it was “Bush tax cuts” that forced banks to lend money to people who couldn’t possibly pay it back, you racist.
The Democrats and their media marketing arm spend 24×7 dividing our nation by race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and religion while calling it “progress” and then blame Republicans for identity-based disunity and disparity? — SHUT UP, only a Nazi would reject the idea that all brown people are pathetic, helpless saps who need social and financial handouts from universally racist and evil white people in order to have a shot at a decent life in this hellhole you call “America.”
The New York Times flat-out admits that they’re not actually a news organization but a propaganda machine pursuing predetermined narratives to bring down Trump and put targets on the backs of his supporters? — SHUT UP, you obviously just hate facts and the truth and are brainwashed by Trump to think journalism is supposed to be objective and impartial. WHY DO YOU HATE THE FIRST AMENDMENT?!
Trump supporters can’t even leave the house wearing a MAGA hat because they’ll be violently assaulted by the media’s faithful audiences who know they can act on their anti-free speech rage with impunity because the media will either defend them or make sure most of the country never even knew it happened? — SHUT UP, it’s your fault for wearing the MAGA hat you white supremacist scumbag who is so good at hiding it that you literally have brown skin.
The Democrats and their media marketing arm have spent a solid 3 years doing Putin’s bidding by casting doubt on the legitimacy of our elections while insisting without evidence that the President of the United States is a Russian spy? — SHUT UP, you clearly hate America if you can’t see that Trump’s refusal to call Putin names means he’s in Russia’s pocket.
DON’T SHUT UP
Anyone on the right — from the grassroots, to the conservative media, to the politicians — who doesn’t know that the media, not the Democrats, are the greatest threat to our nation’s progress and unity, are very much part of the problem and forever distant from being any kind of asset with respect to the solution.
It. Doesn’t. Matter. What. Happens. Or. When. Or. How. It. Happens.
If it helps the right and/or hurts the left, the media will either dismiss or distort it to fit their anti-right, pro-left narrative.
Trump could literally create world peace and bring employment, prosperity and good health to every person on the planet — and the media’s entire story line would revolve around “anonymous, inside sources” who told them he only did it because he’d been angrily scribbling Obama’s name on the White House walls for months and finally figured out the best way to get back at him would be to do the things Obama promised but couldn’t get done.
“So is this really a win for President Trump? Or does the credit go, as it has so many times in Trump’s chaotic and corrupt time in office, to his predecessor and the Democrats and media firefighters who worked so diligently and nobly to hold him accountable? We’ll let you decide.”
-Jake Tapper, after Trump cures cancer and creates world peace for all eternity
There isn’t a single thing Trump could do, or a single story line that arises, that the media won’t spin to fit their hateful narrative for Trump and his supporters and their lovefest for any and all things who oppose Trump and/or violently attack and assault his supporters.
And it would be the same way if Romney or Sasse or Amash or any of the media’s other pretend darlings were POTUS, only with slightly less vigor on the media’s part because each of the aforementioned lack any semblance of nuts with which to dare swing back at the media.
I’m writing this piece really just to re-up one I already wrote that got zero traction. So this is another at-bat for me on this subject. A passage from that piece…
On literally every issue, the Democrats are social psychopaths whose goals are so far out-of-touch with reality that they have to lie in order to pitch them. There isn’t a single thing the Democrats want and/or fight for that they’re honest about. Every single issue gets packaged in a hilarious euphemism that’s designed to help make their goals more palatable, because their ultimate objectives are so totally insane that nobody would ever in a million years be okay with them.
And that’s where the media comes in.
The media’s job is to be a marketing arm for the Democrats. All day, every day, in virtually every political news media vehicle except a few voices on Fox News and a few others on AM talk radio — the entirety of the mainstream political news media runs cover for the Democrats while attacking and demonizing Republicans. All they do is lie. They lie about the subject matter and the people involved. Some of the lies are flagrant, while other lies are more subtle. Some of the liars are aggressive, while others are more nuanced. But it’s always lies, and it’s always on behalf of Democrats and at the expense of Republicans.
While feigning deference to forces allegedly beyond their control, they decide exactly what stories will be covered and exactly what spin will be attached to those stories.
The media is, and for decades has been, nothing more than a propaganda machine to help the Democrats lie about their true objectives. And because the media is so powerful, our Republican “leaders” had spent decades balled up in fetal positions trying to tell us that our perceptions about media bias were imaginary, and that we really couldn’t do anything about it and shouldn’t bother trying.
The swamp worked like this: The Democrats ran the show, the Republicans pretended to fight them, and the media told our nation that it was a real horserace while slowly but steadily ensuring everything always shifted only to the left. Shame on those Republicans who just a few short years ago dared to lecture us about the media AKSHUALLY being pretty honest and fair. It was never the case, and that’s never been more obvious than right now as they try to take down the one person who finally stood up to them on our behalf: Donald J. Trump.
The media abandoned impartiality and objectivity decades ago but they still at least tried to fake it. Today, as Trump repeatedly batters them with the truth they should’ve been pummeled by for decades, they’ve also abandoned even the impression of impartiality and objectivity. And the only people left who will even pretend to dispute that are the avowed members of the media’s increasingly violent army, also known as The Resistance.
We are in an all-out war for the future of the United States of America. And the greatest domestic threat to our nation’s future surely isn’t the weak, toothless Democrats or their feckless establishment Republican whipping boys. The greatest domestic threat to our nation’s future is the tremendously powerful mainstream political news media — with a pathetically attempted assist from the pajama boys in the entertainment media (Hollywood) who eagerly surf their coattails. (Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert, Alyssa Milano, Mark Ruffalo, Patricia Arquette, Robert DeWeirdo, etc.)
This is why we must stop focusing on the laughably impotent Democrats and instead take our fight directly to their most potent weapon: The mainstream political news media, most notably CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, AP, The Washington Post and The New York Times.
And that’s exactly what I, and increasingly many others, are focused on. The Democrats are a joke. The flagrantly partisan and incredibly powerful political news media whose sole job is to promote and defend the Democrats, are the real threat to a united and progress-minded America.
The Democrats are a joke. The media is the true threat and, I’ll go ahead and say it…
And the fact that some of you think calling them out for missing a fact here or there, or that one-off indictments of their reporting is even remotely effective, is frankly pathetic. The entire f**king institution needs to be indicted by our entire movement. And the most important first step is to say the words out loud: The feckless, impotent Democrat party has nothing on their insanely powerful media marketing arm which infiltrates every American home all day, every day. This isn’t about a boycott. This isn’t about blocking their channels or refusing to click on their links. This is about getting the word out and making sure everyone on our side hears and understands it.
The Democrats are the least of our worries. It’s the media who defend them at every turn, no matter what, in the most appallingly dishonest and destructive ways — so completely asinine in their flagrant bias and dishonesty that you could be forgiven for thinking it’s some kind of very effective form of psychological warfare — who are the real problem.
Or, alternatively, you can just wait until Twitter bans Trump and the media refuse to give him or his supporters any air time while all of the most effective conservative voices are deplatformed and kicked off social media entirely, and then air your grievance about who and where the real threat was. But you’ll be yelling into an empty void and nobody will hear you, because the media will have already stood by laughing as you and everyone who thinks like you were kicked out of the public square — and they’ll be busy writing their stories and doing their news hits about how it was all your fault, and the world is a much better place without you anyway.
So by all means grassroots conservatives, conservative media, and GOP politicians — keep pretending to be really surprised and mad that the media won’t get in line and tell the world how great we are and how bad the Democrats are. Keep pretending that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have even a shred of the influence that Jake Tapper, Chuck Todd, Lester Holt and Stephen Colbert do. Keep waving your research around that proves the media is biased, and then going right back to absolving them by pretending the real problem is the Democrat party.
The Democrats are a joke. The media is the real threat. And anyone who doesn’t understand, articulate and act on that — in accordance with their non-violent civic duty and commitment to pro-liberty, character-over-identity, social and political pursuits — is part of the problem. And if you’re one of the lucky few who have a meaningful platform in conservative media or by way of elected Republican office, you’re exponentially worse than the rest because you’re the ones in a real position to bring attention to this but are too stupid or afraid to have done so.
