For comparison’s sake, consider Biden and his family vs. President Trump and his family. Consider especially the intersection of their actions and how the Democrats and their media addressed said actions.
The differences are stark. Those same differences also give credence to the Dems’ claims that our very democracy is in jeopardy, but that the Dems are projecting their own guilt and the threat they pose to America upon President Trump., his family, and the 10’s of millions of patriots who supported and continue to support him.
And that is the fundamental basis of the a cappella agitpop that tries to pass itself off as news in America. The Lamestream Media’s go-to play is to find something, no matter how localized or minute, spin it into something outrageous, and sensationalize it in order to turn it into a widespread “issue” that demands the readers’ or viewers’ attention and reaction. Simply put, it’s how they make their money.
And, when the Lamestream Media is particularly successful, e.g., any negative encounter between a Black and the police, they create an actual nationwide problem that further feeds attention and money to the “news” media’s coffers.
“Lights, Camera, Fiction!” Truly, this is how, if anyone was still interested in either honesty or America’s Constitution, how every single broadcast by the Lamestream Media should start. After all, they’ve proven time and time again over the years that the truth is no longer in them and something they actively avoid speaking with what amounts to religious fervor.
While each of the many Lamestream Media outlets has its own guides for how to report on politics, they rarely differ more than in the specific wording and dog-whistles that are to be used. All of them follow the “journalists;” guide shown above with religious fervor.
And that is an existential threat to the very Republic that provides the freedom for the Lamestream Media to operate as it does. Even Malcom X recognized this approximately 50 years ago.
The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses. The press is so powerful in its image-making role, it can make the criminal look like he’s a the victim and make the victim look like he’s the criminal. This is the press, an irresponsible press. It will make the criminal look like he’s the victim and make the victim look like he’s the criminal. If you aren’t careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.
— Malcom X
This isn’t new – though Malcom X was mostly wrong about how his sorts were reported upon. It was obvious during the 2007 – 2008 Democrat primaries when the Lamestream Media engineered public opinion away from Hillary Clinton and toward the Black candidate. And then, even more, during the actual 2008 Presidential Election, when the media pilloried Sarah Palin. And it just continued on, escalated, and became more shamelessly overt since then, culminating in their unprecedented attacks upon President Trump, his family – including specifically young Barron, and any and all who weren’t sufficiently hateful towards them.
It’s a simple comparative study of both the facts of #BlackLivesMatter/#antifa riots and insurrection vs. the singular act of some few Americans storming the Capitol and the result outrage promulgated by the Congressional Democrats and their media.
The findings are equally simple. The nationwide outrage over the assault upon the Capitol is utterly falsely based and manufactured. The Left and their minority sharecroppers are not intrinsically bothered by violence, not even nationwide, extreme violence. They’re only bothered when it’s not Blacks and their “White” enablers committing the violence. And they’re furthered outraged because the assault was caused by the firmly held and not truly unwarranted belief on the part of the Americans involved that the Dems stole the 2020 election in order to install Biden as POTUS.
