The rays from this beacon, lighting this gateway to the continent, will welcome the poor and the persecuted with the hope and promise of homes and citizenship. It will teach them that there is room and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but that those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.
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.
It’s honestly like that these days and has been in ever-increasing severity for many years. Various Leftist and other anti-White/anti-American sorts, e.g., the entirety of the “Black Community,” are tuned to- and trained for being outraged by whatever the Lamestream media tells them be outraged over.
Understand, these sorts are addicted to being outraged. The Lamestream media, reinforced by the social media platforms, has hooked them on it and turned them into outrage junkies. And, like all dealers in destructive things, they greatly profit from their junkies. Indeed, the closest analogy I can come up with is the Lamestream media “whores out” the outrage junkies, much like some pimps addict their “strings” to ensure some level of commitment and loyalty. This is because, to the media, those junkies are products, not customers.
It’s A Total BUMMER
Jaron Lanier, one of the pioneers of Virtual Reality, coined the acronym, BUMMER in his 2018 book, Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now. It means ‘Behaviors of Users Modified and Made into Empires for Rent’ and it aptly describes what the Lamestream Media and Social Media does. They addict people to the outrage they peddle, then rent them to their advertisers and/or the Democrat party.
Social media is biased, not to the Left or the Right, but downward. The relative ease of using negative emotions for the purposes of addiction and manipulation makes it relatively easier to achieve undignified results. An unfortunate combination of biology and math favors degradation of the human world. Information warfare units sway elections, hate groups recruit, and nihilists get amazing bang for the buck when they try to bring society down.
— Jaron Lanier
Lanier, due to his tech hyperfocus, focuses on Social Media, but one can see the same pattern for the same economic reasons in the larger, more traditional media forms and outlets as well. Also, while there might not have been a bias to the Left, there is such a bias today. The new generation of media employees started work with their outrage addiction already in place and getting their fix is easier when their worldview has been modified to fit a Leftist ideology.
Yeah, the sheeple on the Left have been hooked on the dopamine-driven outrage response by the Lamestream and Social Media. They just get their fix from their phone, phablets, tablets, and PCs instead of from a needle, pipe, or line. In the end, junkies are junkies and dealers are dealers.
Did you know that President Trump did all these things – among many other fine and great acts – during his four years in office?
Most likely, unless you’re a serious political wonk with either too much time on your hands or a material need to hunt down such things, you don’t. It’s not like the Democrats’ Lamestream Media ever reported any positive thing that President Trump has done. Doing so wasn’t their job since it didn’t fit the chosen narrative or the Democrats’ most-likely successful pogrom to remove our POTUS from office.
Well now, too late in all likelihood for a positive and peaceful resolution, you know. What you do with that knowledge is a matter for your own conscience.
Here’s one positive thing. You can stop or reduce your worrying over the coronavirus. COVID-19 is on its way out thanks to the Biden Vaccine. The Democrats likely-beyond-reasonable-doubt installation of Joe Biden as the next POTUS is the vaccine that will destroy The ‘Rona.
By that, I don’t mean any “real” vaccine. I mean that, with the incoming Biden-Harris regime, the Lamestream Media will largely back off on sowing undue fear about COVID-19 and lambasting the Executive over any responses made or not made. They’ll do their “best” to “normalize” the fear levels while protecting Biden and Harris.
It makes perfect sense once you realize that the media is the virus. The media is the real disease causing so much pain and strife across our nation. Once that truth is understood, it makes sense that, having achieved their and their masters’ goals of installing Biden as the titular POTUS, the symptoms they caused will fade out.
Fade out, not go away!
That the media’s propagation of the “Panicdemic” will fade out doesn’t mean that it will fade away. No; the coronavirus will still be here. It’s just that the Lamestream media will normalize that while keeping just enough fear alive to enable them to castigate any and all who rebel against various and sundry Democrat politicians’ “reasonable” restrictions upon Americans’ Rights of Speech, Assembly, Religion, and Association.
One could probably substitute any channel’s “news” group meeting for NBC’s Today Show and be accurate enough for everyday use. They’ve all, except for Fox News, lost the trust and the viewership of both Americans and the Democrats, and they seem to choose to double-down on Leftist, anti-Trump editorializing instead of correct their behavior.
Ah well; stupid should be painful and they’ve collectively been grossly stupid. They went full-on Libtard – one should never go full-on Libtard 😆 – and threw away the trust and viewership of the American people, leaving stuck with pandering to the Left in order to stay afloat. And the Left? They’re deep into decompensation these days, demanding more extremity, more hate, and more explicit compliance with the “orthodox dogma” of their cult.
