As we age, some things get harder to watch, what passes for news being near the top of that sad list. With the Lamestream Media being very little else than a Leftist propaganda corps for the sorts that vote Democrat – more and more the more extreme part of the party too – this is unavoidable.
Mr. Russell, in his work, Unpopular Essays, was quite correct. The behaviors of Liberals, Progressives, Minorities, Feminists – all of the sorts that vote Democrat – have proven this time and time again, with each paroxysm of fear and its resultant ferocity and often feral savagery further proving that it’s a degenerative cycle.
It doesn’t matter which fear it is either. COVID-19, Climate Change, Capitalism, or the more fundamental fear of straight, White men, the response by the Left and their minority sharecroppers is always to circle up and attack anyone who doesn’t share their fears however they can, which normally means vilifying them and labeling them as an existential threat.
Worse, it doesn’t end – though the latest, trendy fear may distract them from previous fears for a while. Instead, it escalates because the Dems’ collective fears create a feedback loop between them, the Lamestream Media, and their politicians that is self-perpetuating and, like all engines subject to positive feedback loops, prone to runaway or race conditions.
The truly unfortunate thing is that there’s no outside cure for cowardice, only cures for cowards.

What actually happened during the 2020 elections, the ongoing COVID-19 panicdemic, Russia’s invasion of at least parts of Ukraine – be cognizant that you’ve been lied to about them all, both in broad sweeps and in detail. The truth exists; it’s out there, but it’s not what you’ve told.
I’ll give them that the vaccines are safe since a vanishingly low percentage of recipients have had any noticeable adverse effects worse than some years’ flu shots and the largest number of them can be and were handled by simple measures at the vaccination sites. But highly effective? Or even particularly effective at all for preventing either the contraction or transmission of COVID-19? No; I’m not sold on that at all.
Sure, all the data shows a high likelihood that all of these COVID-19 vaccines will, while they’re still working, reduce your chance of infection and, if infected anyway, the severity of your symptoms. Hence, by and large, I advocate getting vaccinated, and your strongly considering keeping up with the boosters. But don’t try to tell me that they’re highly effective. That’s just propaganda designed for the purpose of crowd control.
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 mediaâ€™s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and thatâ€™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 heâ€™s a the victim and make the victim look like heâ€™s the criminal. This is the press, an irresponsible press. It will make the criminal look like heâ€™s the victim and make the victim look like heâ€™s the criminal. If you arenâ€™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.
