Well, President Trump did it again. With one tweet (actually two, since he deleted the first one to add more MSM names), he managed to trigger liberal snowflakes, especially those in the MSM, making heads explode from one end of the country to the other, when he said "The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!"
That one tweet went viral and once again liberal media did the work for Trump, creating a Twitter hashtag of #NotTheEnemy, which of course got taken over by conservatives providing examples all morning, afternoon and evening, of every "fake news" headlines the MSM has spread over the years. It was truly disturbing to watch the desperate and pathetic attempts to claim that journalists that have lost their lives to report true news, was somehow equated with the deliberately biased, and some cases, totally fake news that has been seen throughout the MSM over the last two years.
DELIBERATELY TRYING TO INCITE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA
That tweet, coming on the heels of the press conference where Trump highlighted how much "hatred and venom" the MSM was spewing on a daily basis, was simply too much for them, but the issue goes deeper than some kind of MSM vs Trump and his supporters, it speaks directly to the deliberate attempts on the part of the MSM to incite liberals into causing a civil war.
This morning I woke to another phrase trending called "Are Liberals Helping Trump," which was a reference to a NYT article which showed how Democrats were being pushed toward Trump because of the antics of the progressive left. While the writers bias against Trump was clear in the deliberate wording, the point was made in just a few paragraphs, where a registered Democrat, one who voted for Bill Clinton twice, describes the hypocrisy she is noting from liberals for lambasting Trump for his stance on illegal immigration yet Bill Clinton had said the same thing in a speech about the danger of illegal immigration.
The woman they quoted also highlighted the violent protests, saying "I don't have a problem with protesting as long as its peaceful, but this is destroying the country. I feel like we are in some kind of civil war right now. I know people don't like to use those terms. But I think it's scary."
"The Democratic Party has changed so much that I don’t even recognize it anymore,” she said. “These people are destroying our democracy. They are scarier to me than these Islamic terrorists. I feel absolutely disgusted with them and their antics. It strengthens people’s resolve in wanting to support President Trump. It really does."
While the piece detailed other examples, it is noteworthy that her point is born out by a recent study which shows that extreme protest tactics, as seen throughout the country, such as blocking traffic, damaging property, rioting, and other forms of extreme protest behaviors can reduce popular support for social movements, and backfires against the causes espoused by the protesters.
What is even more noteworthy is that the NYT writer seems to disconnect themselves from what they are writing about, never acknowledging how the MSM, including the NYT itself, who has been caught publishing 31 anti-Trump pieces in just one issue, is actually inciting such behaviors by acting like every word uttered by Trump, every cabinet member choice, every EO, and every action his administration takes, is some type of apocalyptic event.
The NYT headline is wrong in one regard, they aren't "helping Trump," what they are doing is driving away their own supporters in droves.
Every time the MSM uses minutiae, unimportant "news" pretending it is some type of dangerous event, further inciting violent behaviors from the Alt-Left, they are proving Trump's assertion that the "fake news media" is "the enemy of the American people."
THE PARTY OF 'TOLERANCE' BECOMES THE PARTY OF DEATH
Another thing that old fashioned Democrats, those that simply have different ideological leanings than conservatives but aren't part of the progressive liberal crowd that finds violent riots acceptable, if it is liberal snowflakes committing the violence that is, are showing, is that the hypocrisy being highlighted is turning them away from the Democratic party as a whole.
For example, if anyone suggested they were thinking of "blowing up the White House," when Obama was president, they would have been called racist "domestic terrorists," yet Madonna was hailed a hero by the Alt-Left.
Death threats against a gay man would be hailed as "homophobic," yet if that man is Milo Yiannopolous, it is acceptable in the eyes of the Alt-Left, because he espouses conservative ideals on immigration, free speech and economic issues. The media played their part in inciting violence against him as well, as they labeled him a "white nationalist," member of the Alt-Right, despite the well known fact that both groups hate him with a passion, and he publicly dates a number of black men.
While I could do page after page of examples, the pattern seen is that the party of so-called "tolerance" has become the party of death, and it is not a matter of being "intolerant" of those with different ideological beliefs, not at all. It is because the MSM and their progressive liberal Democrat brethren believe they "own" certain demographics, and when someone in a certain demographic category such as a gay man, or an African American, or a woman, or a legal immigrant, doesn't agree with them, they see their base going down the toilet.
Let me repeat this to be very clear, it is not "intolerance" we are witnessing. It is the fact that they are driving away their moderate party members by becoming the "party of death," and MSM is deliberately stoking the fires.
The liberal MSM believed they "owned" the sphere of "influence," but the election of Donald Trump, despite their consistent bashing of him and his supporters, made it very clear their influence on the American public is gone, and they are more than willing to incite a civil war in America and attempt to blame Donald Trump for it, when they are the ones pushing for it.
The MSM and Democrats believe they "own" the African American demographic, much like their Democratic ancestors owned black slaves, only now they consider them "voting slaves" rather than domestic, with Democratic politicians acknowledging them and using them during election cycles for votes, then ignoring them the rest of the time. So when a black Republican comes along, like Senator Tim Scott, they call him an "Uncle Tom" and a "House negro."
The media ignores women like the one shown below, who spoke out against illegal immigration at a townhall in a video now going viral, because they don't own her, or her opinion and she isn't afraid to speak out as a proud African American Trump supporter that says illegal immigration is what is really racist.
The MSM and Democrats believe they "own" the gay community, so when a member of the liberal gay community like Chadwick Moore, a 33-year-old journalist who lives in Williamsburg, decides to profile a piece the conservative, gay Milo Yiannopoulos, for his gay magazine "Out," he was ostracized, harassed, was called a Nazi, received death threats and called an Islamophobe.
Moore writes the following:
Most disconcertingly, it wasn’t just strangers voicing radical discontent. Personal friends of mine — men in their 60s who had been my longtime mentors — were coming at me. They wrote on Facebook that the story was “irresponsible” and “dangerous.” A dozen or so people unfriended me. A petition was circulated online, condemning the magazine and my article. All I had done was write a balanced story on an outspoken Trump supporter for a liberal, gay magazine, and now I was being attacked. I felt alienated and frightened.
BOTTOM LINE - THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
Why did Mr. Moore receive death threats? Because the MSM false labeled Milo a white nationalist. Why did Villa receive death threats? Because the MSM falsely labeled Trump supporters as racist, so the Alt-left saw her support of Trump as a betrayal. Why did women that voted for Trump suffer accusations that they "hated women?" Because the MSM falsely labeled Trump a misogynist. Why are we seeing all these immigrant protests? Because the MSM deliberately and falsely conflated illegal immigrants with legal immigrants.
Behind every organized protest and protester, it is the MSM behind the scenes fanning the flames of civil war, encouraging "fake" narratives to incite violence. Every injury and each drop of blood spilled is on the heads of the MSM.
Trump is right..... the "fake news media," is "the enemy of the American people.
