Whoever controls the flow of information, controls the thoughts of the masses. For a very, very, long time, this power was exclusively in the hands of the mainstream media. They had the power to decide the results of elections, decide popular policies, and decide pretty much everything else of importance. However, they eventually became complacent, self-assured that their power was untouchable. And because they became complacent, things have now changed, and they’re in full on panic mode. They’ve been exposed and lost the trust of the masses, and they can’t handle it. Instead of taking a moment to reflect on everything, they instead have chosen to have a two year long temper tantrum, that currently shows no sign of abating.
President Donald Trump met with the publisher of the New York Times A.G. Sulzberger earlier this month. But the two seem to have different recollections of the July 20th meeting at the White House.
Of course they do.
Trump first revealed the meeting took place in a tweet on Sunday morning from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
“Had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with A.G. Sulzberger, Publisher of the New York Times,” Trump wrote. “Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, ‘Enemy of the People.’ Sad!”
Where’s the lie exactly? All they ever do is put out fake news these days. In fact,they put out so much fake news, that Trump was actually able to make a list of the top 10 fake news stories of 2017, just by picking the ten most egregious examples.
This is not simple incompetence. This is a deliberate attempt to gaslight,mislead, and control the thoughts of the general population. They want the people to feel frightened, feel angry, and to vote against their own interests. Therefore, it is perfectly fair and accurate to refer to the mainstream media as the enemy of the people.
In a lengthy statement released after Trump’s tweet, the New York Times said that it was the White House who invited the Times, and that it requested the meeting be off-the-record.
This could very well be true, but seeing as they’ve put out so much fake news already, I’m not going to believe them.
But with Trump’s tweet, a Times spokeswoman said the newspaper decided to publicize Sulzberger’s “detailed notes.” Sulzberger attended the meeting along with editorial page editor, James Bennet.
Sulzberger said he accepted the meeting to raise concerns about “the president’s deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric” and that he told Trump his language was divisive and “increasingly dangerous.”
According to the Publisher of the NYT, Trump is the one who is using divisive language.
Is it zero self awareness, or a zero sense of shame with these people?
“I told him that although the phrase ‘fake news’ is untrue and harmful,
He just engaged in fake news with this sentence.
I am far more concerned about his labeling journalists ‘the enemy of the people.’ I warned that this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence,” Sulzberger said.
And meanwhile in the United States…
Do you think that maybe there’s a possibility that the hateful rhetoric that media like the NYT put out about white people, could be contributing to the stats above? Do they even care? Of course not. These journalists make me sick to my stomach. They don’t give a damn about the violence that they incite on others, but when they’re called out, suddenly, they’re the victims.
“I repeatedly stressed that this is particularly true abroad, where the president’s rhetoric is being used by some regimes to justify sweeping crackdowns on journalists.
I warned that it was putting lives at risk, that it was undermining the democratic ideals of our nation, and that it was eroding one of our country’s greatest exports: a commitment to free speech and a free press.
You shameless, sickening rat. Nobody is stopping you from engaging in free speech. Nobody is stopping the free press from reporting the news. All he’s doing is calling you out on your lies, and holding you to account. Just as you have a right to say something, other people have a right to respond. These journalists are just unbelievable. They actually genuinely believe that they should be free to say whatever untrue things they want about people, and claim that they’re the victims, when these people talk back.
It’s times like this that I actually wish Trump really was as bad as they say he is, and was rounding up journalists and executing them.
“Throughout the conversation I emphasized that if President Trump, like previous presidents, was upset with coverage of his administration he was of course free to tell the world.
Which is exactly what he’s doing.
I made clear repeatedly that I was not asking for him to soften his attacks on The Times if he felt our coverage was unfair.
And so he shouldn’t.
Instead, I implored him to reconsider his broader attacks on journalism, which I believe are dangerous and harmful to our country,” he continued.
And I, and many others believe, that spreading fake news is a much greater danger, than calling out the perpetrators of the fake news. Maybe if you stopped lying, stopped trying to incite violence against white people, and started just reporting a fair and unbiased report of the news, you wouldn’t have to worry about being called out anymore.
“The president regularly meets with members of the media and we can confirm this meeting took place,” said White House spokeswoman Mercedes Schlapp.
A president meeting with the publisher of one of the country’s most prominent newspapers is not unusual. Presidents have often held off-the-record meetings with owners and publishers of major media outlets.
But the Times holds a special place for Trump, a New York native. Despite his frequent criticism of Times’ reporters and their stories, he has still given the paper multiple interviews.
Yeah,and that’s a stupid idea Trump. Don’t give them the time of day. They need you, more than you need them.
Sulzberger is still a new publisher. He took over the family-controlled paper from his father Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr. in January and has been overseeing a boom time for the business.
Despite Trump’s “failing New York Times” nickname, the Times is actually experiencing a surge in subscribers and popularity. Its profits increased by about two-thirds in the first quarter of 2018. Its “The Daily” podcast brings in millions of listeners each month.
Yeah, until actually see the statistics here, I’m going to remain skeptical.
Soon after winning the 2016 election, Trump traveled to meet with editors and reporters at the New York Times’ headquarters, where he lauded the paper as a “great, great American jewel” and that he hoped they could all “get along.”
I’ve often pointed out that the “diversity is our greatest strength” meme, has been heavily pushed, even though not a single shred of evidence has ever been provided to back it up. However, it looks as if they’ve finally found the evidence that they’ve needed at last. Following France’s recent victory in the World Cup, the treacherous career politicians, and the tightly controlled mainstream media are all rallying behind the story as “proof”, that diversity really is a strength. Lets just take a look at a sample of some recent headlines on the topic.
Wow, when you look at that, it seems pretty unanimous. How could anyone possibly doubt it, when all these different media sources, all independently came to the same conclusion? The evidence must be overwhelming. If I didn’t know better, and I was some kind of crazy, tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist, I would almost suspect that the media is basically a monopoly colluding with one another, on the narratives that should be pushed.
“JUST A COINCIDENCE. GO BACK TO SLEEP.”
No, I would say that THIS, is what is actually extremely dangerous to our democracy.
So yeah, according to the media and the political establishment, diversity is a wonderful thing, because a “diverse” team won a tournament that involves kicking a ball into a net. This is apparently the most important thing ever.
So lets take a look at what has been happening in “diverse” France, in the aftermath of their world cup victory.
Isn’t it funny, how the media is cherry picking which stories to focus their attention on, in regards to the diversity narrative? They play up the benefits of diversity in regards to the World Cup victory, a great honour for any country of course, but not something that is essential to the wellbeing of France or the French people. But in regards to the riots, violence, property damage etc., all of which are largely a consequence of France’s immigration policies, they are completely silent. No sane person thinks that the benefits of winning the World Cup, compensate for the untold damage that the country has undergone in the last few decades. Does the World Cup victory compensate for the multiple terror attacks? Does it compensate for all the burned our cars and smashed windows? Does it compensate for all the black/Arab on white violence that has happened in the country? Does it compensate for the collapsing social cohesion in the country?
Of course it doesn’t, but the media and career politicians are never going to ask any of these questions, because they don’t give a damn about any of this. They have a mission to enforce a multicultural dystopian hellhole on the people of Europe, and they will cynically exploit any piece of propaganda that can help promote it, while downplaying any information, that might hinder it.
Enjoy your World Cup victory French people. If things keep going the way that they’re going, it could very well be one of the last things that you have any reason to feel proud about.
The following piece of text is an extract from George Lincoln Rockwell’s (leader and founder of the American Nazi party) 1967 book “White Power”. I would suggest that you set aside any emotional preconceptions that you might have in regards to the terms “Nazi” and “White Power”, and just judge what is said on its own merits, rather than on its source.
Off the New England and Gulf Coasts of America, a century or so ago, there were murderous gangs called “ship wreckers”. The gangs would set up false lights near real lighthouses, cunningly placed so that suspecting ships approaching the coast in the dark and in storms would be guided onto deadly reefs.
As soon as the ship was smashed, while the captain and crew were trying to survive the storm, these vultures would pounce on the helpless ship and rob it.
To protect themselves from exposure, the gang murdered every human being aboard.
There was nothing complicated in shipwrecking. It was the oldest crime in the world – murder for what the other man had. The only difference was in the method of using false lighthouses.
Today, there is abroad in the world an enormous gang operating in almost every nation doing EXACTLY the same thing as the early ship-wreckers, except that the modem “ship- wreckers” have added a fremendous complexity of refinements, and instead of wrecking ships, they wreck whole nations.
They are called “Communists”, or “Marxists”. But basically, the leaders are out to ROB and murder productive people for loot, just as the ship-wreckers robbed those who had worked for the ship’s cargo, and then killed them.
Their basic technique, in the end, just as with the ship wreckers, is always naked violence and murder.
But also, just as with the ship-wreckers, they cannot beat the honest productive people of the world by sheer force. They also need surprise and guile.That’s where the chart forgery and the fake lighthouses come in.
The Red gang of ship-wreckers lure decent, honest and sincere people onto the deadly reefs of Marxist insanity with their fake lighthouses of “brotherhood”, “peace”, “love”, “democracy”, “equality”. And then they rig all the charts available to show these fake lighthouses as the ONLY safe guides. Meanwhile, these robbers and forgers rig all our charts (the press) to show the real, safe channels, in which America sailed to greatness, as the most deadly and dangerous of all reefs.
Once our civilization has been wrecked, the Red gang plans to loot it, as they have looted every nation they seize.
In the next chapter, I shall present the fingerprints, footprints, witnesses and handwriting experts to prove before a jury of my fellow Americans just ‘WHO these Red ship wreckers, robbers and killers are.
But first, I want to prove THAT THE CAPTAINS OF OUR SHIP OF STATE, FOR THE LAST FORTY YEARS, HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH THE CRIMINAL INTERNATIONAL GANG OF SHIP- WRECKERS, STEERING BY THESE LYING CHARTS!
Returning to the coast gangs, a hundred years ago, you can imagine the additional effectiveness of the crime, if the gangs could install some of their own criminal members as the captains of the ships approaching the phony lighthouses.
With a fake captain, the unsuspecting ship and crew would have NO chance – even if some of the navigators began to “smell a rat”.
Any navigator who began to protest too vigorously that dirty work was afoot could be clapped into irons by the captain, with the full agreement of the other officers, who could be shown the phony charts. The evidence of dirty work would be too complex for most other officers and crewmen to see, and they would be led to believe the captain’s lies, because the captain always has the phony charts to prove he is right.
That’s precisely what has happened to America’s ship of state.
Men like the great Joe McCarthy were “navigators” who tried to warn the other officers and crew that the captain and the gang were wrecking the ship.
But the fake captains of our nation have been backed up 1000% by the fake chart-makers – the press, TV, etc. -and have managed to keep the innocent victims (the crew and ship) convinced that it was McCarthy who was trying to wreck America on the rocks, while the crooked captains have been presented as the greatest navigators in the history of the world.
Meanwhile, the same “wonderful” captains have been smashing our ship of state into one rock after the other, always with brilliant explanations by the captains, and adoring acceptance of the explanations as the ultimate in statesmanship, by our crooked chart-makers the press. The American crew never really has a chance.
Rockwell was describing the situation unfolding in his own country, America, as he saw it, but despite having been written half a century ago, and in relation to a different country, I can’t help but find it strangely prophetic in regards to what is taking place in Ireland right now.
Concerns have been raised about an “ethically dubious deal” between the government and national newspapers that involves journalists writing positive pieces about the Ireland 2040 plan.
The government’s strategic communications unit arranged for sponsored content to appear in local, regional and national newspapers including the Irish Independent and The Irish Times.
Last week, the cabinet travelled to Sligo to unveil the €116 billion national development plan to prepare for an estimated population growth of one million people over the next two decades. It set out spending plans for infrastructure, transport and housing.
It is understood that a number of journalists at Independent News and Media were asked to write positive news pieces, which could not include negative or critical content.
The rest of the article is behind a paywall, but I think the small extract that is available, makes its point clear. The Irish government has recently unveiled plans, for what it calls “Project Ireland 2040”, which details their goals for the country’s development by the year 2040. On the surface, a lot of the goals seem commendable. Improved services. Improved infrastructure. Development of rural areas. Moving to cleaner and more efficient energy sources, etc. However, there is one part that is cause for alarm.
According to the most recent census, Ireland currently has a population just shy of 4.8 million. A population of that size, cannot produce an additional one million people in just twenty years, just from new births alone. Even when combined with reasonable immigration levels, it can’t possibly produce that many. The only possible way that an increase of that level could occur, is through mass immigration, similar to the rates that are currently being experienced in countries like Sweden and Germany.
And we know how well that has turned out for those countries.
Precedent in other countries has already shown that increased mass migration has resulted in an increase in terrorist attacks, riots, rapes against native women and children, and other forms of violence, which is primarily migrants on natives. There’s no argument against this. It’s just observable reality. Why should Ireland be any different in this regard? How can we expect that somehow it will all work out just fine here, when it hasn’t worked out fine anywhere else? I can say with complete confidence, that if Ireland does go down the same path as other countries in regards to mass immigration, then the same problems will happen here as well. I would bet my own life on that.
And this isn’t even taking into account that Ireland is already experiencing a severe housing crisis as it is. How exactly is Ireland supposed to find housing for an additional one million people, when it can’t even provide enough housing for the population that we already have? It simply can’t be done. All this is going to do is push up the already obscenely high cost of housing even further, because the law of supply and demand dictates that when demand is higher than supply, then the prices will increase.
We have a situation that is going to result in very severe problems for the Irish people in the future. And instead of pointing this reality out, the media is colluding with the government, to keep the truth hidden from us. People are being deceived into going against their own demographic interests, in the name of “tolerance” and “diversity”, and other meaningless buzzwords. It’s all a con. Our so called “leaders” and our “free press” are actively involved in this con, and are working against us.
Exactly as the “Nazi”, George Lincoln Rockwell, pointed out half a century ago.
So we’re all well aware of what happened in Spain, but apparently Spain wasn’t the only European country to be “culturally enriched” lately. I would just like to offer my heartfelt condolences to *checks sheet of paper*.. ah yes, Helsinki and Berlin. Much like what happened the night before in *checks sheet again*… Barcelona, yes, these are terrible tragedies, but we must not allow them to change how we think. Diversity is our greatest strength afterall, and attacks like these must not divide us. Our diversity is what unifies us. Yes, division equals unity. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
HELSINKI/BERLIN: In two separate incidents of stabbings on Friday, two people were killed and six injured in the Finnish city of Turku, while another man was hacked to death in the western German city of Wuppertal.
The Finnish Police shot one suspect in the legs and arrested him. Security forces wrote on Twitter that police were “looking for other possible perpetrators”.
One killed in stabbing in western Germany, attacker on the run
Police confirmed that one man was stabbed to death and another injured in Wuppertal, adding that the attacker was still on the loose.
Police in Germany said they were hunting for one or more assailants, but could not immediately provide more information about the circumstances of the attack
The stabbing happened at around 1245 GMT in the city’s Elberfeld area.
Both the incidents come a day after 14 people were killed in twin terror attacks in Spain.
You know, I haven’t been posting a whole lot recently, because as I mentioned, I’m somewhat burned out on everything that has been happening. I know that there were a couple of incidents in France recently for example, that I didn’t even bother writing about. The fact is, these sorts of incidents are nothing unusual anymore. They happen on a damn near weekly basis at this point, and if you add in all the other types of “enrichment”, such as acid attacks, rapes, Muslim grooming gangs etc, you’re pretty much seeing multiple events taking place all over Europe every single day. It’s impossible to discuss them all, let alone think of anything original to say about them each time.
However, these three separate attacks all followed closely on the heels of the incident in Charlottesville, when a quote, unquote, “white supremacist”, plowed his car into a crowd of “peaceful counter-protesters”, killing one in the process. I think it makes an interesting comparison to see the reaction in the mainstream media and on social media to the Charlottesville incident, and then to compare it to the reaction to the typical Islamic terror attacks, like the three most recent ones.
First of all, lets just give a little background context as to what was actually going on in Charlottesville. In the past few years in America, there has been this obsession on the far left, with tearing down monuments and symbols associated with the Confederacy, because they consider these monuments to be a glorification of slavery, and therefore consider them to be “racist” and “oppressive”.
However, there are a lot of other people who don’t consider these monuments offensive, but rather consider them a part of their heritage, and are against their removal. People like this are worried about a possible slippery slope occurring. If these monuments are offensive because of their association with slavery, then what’s to stop people from later finding other icons of American history offensive? Afterall, George Washington himself was a slave owner, so whose to say that these unhinged lunatics won’t eventually be calling for Mount Rushmore to be blown up, and for everything named after Washington, including their capital city no less, to be renamed to something “less offensive” and “more inclusive”? Indeed, as this video from Mark Dice shows, some already are making these demands.
So people who actually take pride in their history and their heritage, and who have realised from experience that these hate-filled lunatics will never be satisfied and will only keep pushing for more, had decided that enough was enough, and that they were going to protest against the planned removal of these monuments. So they organised a march to protest this and even went through the proper channels and obtained a permit. However, the city attempted to revoke this permit. This decision was appealed and a federal judge ruled that revoking the permit would be a violation of the protesters first amendment rights, thus over-ruling the decision of the city’s officials.
So many different groups of people, with many different agendas, united by their common interest in preserving the monuments, turned up to this protest. This did indeed include legitimate white supremacists, KKK, and Neo-Nazi types, but with the way American law works, there’s nothing illegal about having any particular political ideology, no matter how offensive it might be. As long as these groups protested peacefully, there was nothing that could be done to them. Many of them did turn up to the protest armed however, and detractors are citing this as “proof” that violence was their goal all along. However, I don’t believe this was the case at all.
Whenever any groups of white people turn up to protest in favour of their group interests, or attend speeches by people who campaign for them, these events are always attended by Antifa and other groups, who have the intended goal of shutting them down, usually employing extreme violence to do so. Indeed, I’ve discussed this sort of thing before, when the gay, half-Jew, black cock obsessed Milo (whose also apparently a Neo-Nazi, white supremacist), was giving a speech in Berkeley, and Antifa rioted against the event. So knowing that violent Antifa thugs were guaranteed to show up and engage in violence as they normally do, does it not make sense to arm yourselves in anticipation? The weapons weren’t brought in order to start trouble. They were brought as a defensive measure, in preparation for when Antifa did.
So sure enough, Antifa and other violent leftist groups showed up to the event as counter-protesters. Then the police, most likely under the orders of city officials themselves, made the whole situation worse. As I already mentioned, the city had attempted to revoke the protester’s permits, but was over-ruled by a federal judge. However, even though the federal judge ruled that they were allowed to protest, the police decided half way through that the march was “unlawful” and ordered the protesters to disperse. I’ve even heard it suggested that after ordering them to disperse, that the police deliberatelyherded theprotesters righttowards thecounter-protesters, were they were free to take cheap shots at them with baseball bats as they walked by. Indeed, video footage seems to confirm this.
Go to roughly 51:44 to see the protesters being marched out single file by the police, past the counter-protesters, and watch as the counter-protesters start throwing things at them and hitting them with bats.
So eventually the violence gets to a point were one of the alt-right guys plows through a crowd in his car, injuring many and killing one of them. As soon as this happened, the media leapt on it and started declaring it a “terrorist attack” immediately. However, can we really be certain that this was the case? Terrorism has a very specific definition. It’s about using violence and intimidation in order to pursue an ideological objective. When a Muslim runs over a crowd of people, yelling “Allahu Akbar” while doing so, it’s obvious that his motivation is ideologically based, and therefore fits the definition of terrorism.
The problem is, we can’t be certain that this guy ran over the crowd for ideological reasons, at least not until it is properly investigated. With all the violence and chaos going on, he may simply have done so in a panic, trying to escape from it. Alternatively, maybe he did do it on purpose, but it could have been as a result of road rage, due to the anger he felt from having his car attacked by the counter-protesters. Or maybe it is a genuine terrorist attack and he did so in support of the ideology of white supremacy. The point is, we don’t know yet if it does fit the definition of terrorism, but the media doesn’t care, because they are determined to promote their narrative that “white supremacists” are the most dangerous group of terrorists of all, and in order to do that, they need to have a few examples of white supremacist terrorists.
So Trump comes out and condemns the violence and hatred on both sides, and the media goes into hysteria, because he doesn’t condemn “white supremacists” specifically. As far as the media is concerned, condemning both sides equally, when both sides were engaged in violence (and the other side were the ones who started it no less), is the same thing to them as if he had condoned the white supremacists.
So eventually he does come out and condemn white supremacists specifically, and the media still isn’t satisfied, because he didn’t do it quickly enough, or with enough enthusiasm for their liking. This of course is nothing new. Back during the election campaign, they made a big deal about white supremacists endorsing him, and his apparent “refusal to disavow them”, even though he disavowed them constantly.
So lets look at a few of the double standards we’re seeing on display here.
Muslims constantly commit terrorist acts in white majority countries. The media tries to downplay them as being due to “mental illness” on the part of the attackers. White guy who may or may not be a white supremacist (for all we know, he’s just someone who wants to preserve the statues), runs over a crowd one time. Media instantly claims that it was an act of terrorism, before the facts are even established.
Whenever a Muslim terrorist attack happens, the narrative is always that it’s just a tiny minority who do it, and that it doesn’t reflect Islam as a whole. The media calls for tolerance and understanding towards Muslims, and condemns anyone who speaks out as a “racist” or an “Islamophobe”. White people stand up for their own group interests, peacefully 99% of the time. The 1% of the time were violence does happen and the media condemns every single person with any belief in pursuing white interests, and tars them all with the slurs of “white supremacist” or “Neo-Nazi”, and demands action be taken against them.
Antifa and Black Lives Matter, constantly riot and violently attack people, whose political opinions they disagree with. Media downplays them as being “peaceful protests”, and any violence is from a “small minority, which doesn’t represent the movement as a whole”. White nationalists attempt to have a genuinely peaceful protest, get attacked by Antifa, and then fight back to defend themselves from this violence. They’re all violent thugs, and every member of the movement is bad. There are no good people pursuing white interests. They’re all white supremacists, and they’re all automatically violent, just because of their beliefs, even if they don’t commit any actual acts of violence.
Hillary/Obama/Bernie Sanders supporters, make up the ranks of Antifa and BLM, and are constantly involved in violence. The media doesn’t demand that anyone of them disavow the support of these groups. Meanwhile the media constantly demands that Trump disavows the support of “white supremacists” (ie, anyone who believes that white people have a right to pursue their own political interests), and as the video above shows, they don’t even listen to him when he does disavow their support anyway.
When you look at the reaction to what happened in Charlottesville, you would think the world itself was ending, and that this is one of the worst things to ever happen. Yet, we’ve seen months of violent riots from Antifa groups, months of violent riots from Black Lives Matter groups, and countless examples of Muslim terrorist attacks, including at least three in the past two days alone, and none of it ever generates even a fraction of the outrage that this Charlottesville incident has. This suggests that Charlottesville specifically holds special significance to the media, and the only logical explanation, is that the reason why it holds special significance, is because of the groups involved.
What people need to understand, is that none of this is an accident, nor is it a case that the media is simply too “politically correct” and cowardly, to address these issues honestly. No, this is completely deliberate and malicious in its intent. The mainstream media in the Western world, does not exist for the purpose of keeping the population informed about what is actually going on. In fact, it exists for the exact opposite purpose.
In reality, our civilisations have been infiltrated by an enemy that wants to exterminate and replace us all. In order to ensure this extermination occurs, it needs to keep us misinformed and asleep to what is actually happening. As long as we’re unaware, we can’t resist. When Muslim terrorists are constantly killing us, it runs the risk of waking us up, so they deliberately try to downplay what is happening, so that we don’t rise up and demand their removal. When white people protest in favour of our group interests, they deliberately send groups like Antifa and BLM to violently shut us down, and then use their control of the supply of information, to pretend that these Antifa and BLM types are peaceful protesters, rather than the vicious thugs that they really are. When white people come together simply to stand up for our own group interests, against the Muslims who are killing us, or the perpetually offended special snowflakes who want to strip us of our history, they create blatantly false narratives about us, claiming that we’re the violent ones, or that we’re the supremacists, simply for defending ourselves. When we elect a leader who campaigns on representing our interests, and actually tries to do what we want, they use their control of the media to constantly attack him, to destroy his reputation, and to pressure him into disavowing us, in the hopes of creating a divide between him and his base of support.
None of this is an accident. Just think about it honestly. Do you really honestly believe that they could be reporting so much wrong, just by mistake, or that it’s just a coincidence that they always just happen to condemn the right-wing white groups, and defend the non-white and the left-wing groups, no matter which side is the one who is actually in the wrong? No, it’s not a coincidence. It’s done on purpose, because the media is nothing more than a propaganda tool that is under the control of a small and hostile minority, that is at war with the ordinary citizens of their countries.
Now, if only we knew just who that enemy could be.
In my most recent post, I discussed the hysterical CNN overreaction to an internet meme that Trump drew attention to by retweeting on his Twitter. CNN tried (with a straight face) to make the ridiculous claim that the animated GIF of Trump beating up the CNN logo (just the logo, not a specific person), was somehow inciting violence against journalists, and compared it to how journalists are treated in totalitarian regimes, where they’re regularly tortured and murdered, simply for reporting facts that the regime doesn’t like. This was after they had been exposed as liars for continuing to push the Russian hoax, even admitting on camera that they knew damn well that it was complete bullshit the entire time, and after having numerous times supported words and actions that could have been interpreted as inciting violence against Trump. Hypocrisy, thy name is CNN.
Anyway, just when we all thought that CNN couldn’t possibly sink any lower, they have somehow managed to do the impossible, outdo themselves, and sink to even lower depths. Because CNN had their feelings hurt by the animated GIF, they decided to investigate who was responsible for creating it in the first place, eventually tracing it back to a Reddit user by the name of “HanAssholeSolo”. Then they discovered, much to their horror, that this fellow was behind several more anti-CNN posts, with one in particular standing out to them. He had noticed a certain commonality between top figures at CNN and posted this meme.
So HanAssholeSolo was guilty of the most heinous crime of all. He noticed uncomfortable “coincidences” involving Jews, and had the audacity to draw attention to it. Meanwhile, CNN has no problem pointing out that Trump’s cabinet is full of white males.
So it’s OK for them to draw attention to the fact that white males dominate positions of power in Trump’s cabinet, but when someone else draws attention to the fact that Jews dominate positions of power at their organisation, that’s an unforgivable crime that needs to be punished. But what can we expect sure? They’ve already proven themselves to be massive hypocrites with regards to this whole “inciting violence” thing. Is it really unexpected that they’d be massive hypocrites on this issue as well?
So because of this unforgivable crime, CNN used all the resources at their disposal to figure out the true identity of this HanAssholeSolo fellow, and when they did so, they coerced him into making an apology, taking down the memes that he made, and promising not to make any more like them. If he had refused to do any of this, they would have published his personal details, subjecting him and his family to public humiliation, and possible violence in the process. CNN also made it clear in their article on this story that they “Reserve the right” to publish his information, if he goes back on any of this.
By the way, though this is unconfirmed, I’ve heard rumours that he’s actually only 15 years old. Can you imagine that? This 15 year old boy posts a funny meme that shows the CNN logo getting beaten up by Trump, and an image that simply points out the truth, that the majority of leading CNN figures are Jews, and these scumbags track him down and try to blackmail him into silence. This is not the actions of a professional and respectable news organisation. These are the actions you would expect from the Mafia.
Unfortunately for CNN, nobody likes a bully, and doing this has resulted in an even bigger backlash than what they already had received. Numerous prominent content creators on YouTube have voiced their disgust over this…
People are mad as hell about this, and so they should be. CNN constantly try to portray themselves of innocent victims of “violent rhetoric” simply for “doing their jobs”, but yet at the same time, they think they have the right to to bully and threaten a teenage boy, simply for exercising his constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech.
This is exactly why Jews have been so despised for as long as history has been aware of them. Just really think about it. We’re always hearing about how Jews have allegedly been oppressed and subjected to violence, anywhere they’ve lived historically, but do you notice how we never hear why? We’re always led to believe that they’re just innocent victims, and that their host nations inevitably turn against them, just because they’re evil and full of irrational hatred for them.
It’s all complete crap. If they had been persecuted or expelled from where they were living once or twice, you might think “OK, lets give them the benefit of the doubt here”. But when they suffered at least 109 expulsions historically (possibly even higher still than that), and after seeing behaviour like this from the CNN Jews, then does it not become obvious, that they’re the ones who are to blame for these expulsions, not everyone else? If this is the kind of behaviour that they’ve always been engaged in historically (and I’m inclined to believe that it is), then their previous expulsions have been well deserved and justified. They work together as a group to promote their own ethnic interests, while at the same time promoting policies that are detrimental to the interests of the majority (conflict with Russia, constant wars in the Middle East, mass third world immigration, anti-white rhetoric etc). Then when attention is drawn to the fact that they’re all Jews pushing these unpopular narratives, they screech like rats and use intimidation to try and silence any criticism against them. They’re pure evil.
Antisemitism is probably at its highest now than any time since WW2. This isn’t because we’ve all suddenly become Nazis. It’s because the truth about the collective behaviour of the Jews is reaching more and more people. Inevitably, the Jews have always managed to push their host societies too far, and ended up receiving a violent backlash in retaliation. This is because whenever they have gotten powerful enough, they’ve always gotten too cocky for their own good, and gotten careless with their decisions. As their controlled mainstream media continues to spiral into irrelevance, they’ve started panicking and lashing out uncontrollably. This freakout over a stupid joke and persecution of the boy behind it, are not the actions of rational people. It is the actions of a desperate and hysterical parasite, that is terrified of their host waking up to their presence. Yet ironically enough, their attempt to hide the truth, may in fact serve to wake more people up to it. Long may they continue to panic, and risk losing everything in the process.
The “Russia hacked the election” narrative is dead. It was obvious to intelligent people that the whole thing was a hoax, as soon as the media started promoting it. People of average intelligence, started figuring it out in the months that followed, as they failed miserably to produce even a single shred of evidence to back up their claims. Stupid people have finally started seeing through their lies, after the crusading undercover Journalism conducted by Project Veritas, revealed CNN figures admitting on camera that the whole thing was complete crap (videos posted below)…
… and now the only people that remain, that still actually buy into this ridiculous narrative, are the stupidest and most uninformed, drooling imbeciles imaginable. Anyone with any sense, can see this story for the obvious lie that it is.
So what’s the media to do then? They have exposed themselves as liars and charlatans of the highest order, and their credibility is at an all time low. If they had any sense of self-awareness, they would realise that they’re entirely responsible for causing this themselves, and would be taking steps to win back the trust of the ordinary people. So of course, they do the exact opposite instead, and try to find a new ridiculous scandal to talk about in relation to Trump, one which they can run with in place of the now debunked Russian hoax, and boy, it is a stupid one. They’re now making the claim, that Trump is inciting violence against journalists.
So here’s what has happened. Trump has regularly done business with the WWE over the years, and even was involved in a storyline 10 years ago that culminated at that year’s Wrestlemania… their biggest show of the year. As part of the storyline, he got into a (very fake looking) physical altercation with fellow Billionaire, and WWE owner, Vince McMahon.
So people online, having observed Trump’s ongoing war with the fake news mainstream media (of which CNN is probably the most shameless organisation of all), decided to have a bit of fun with this clip, by editing it so that CNN’s logo covered Vince McMahon’s head. Trump then retweeted this edited video.
So the sensible reaction to this would be to laugh it off and take it in good humour as the obvious joke that it is. Instead figures in the media have been acting hysterical, about how this was “disgraceful”, and that by retweeting this video of himself beating up the CNN logo, that Trump is attempting to encourage his supporters to engage in violence against journalists, simply for having the audacity to “keep him in check” and to “ask him the hard questions”. Even though in reality, they’ve already been exposed as liars and that’s the real reason he has a problem with them.
Just look at this video for example…
The CNN talking head is practically foaming at the mouth and on the verge of breaking down in tears at the “scary” and “dangerous” video that he retweeted. It’s absolutely incredible just how personally they’re taking this. He then shows a statement from the news organisation itself, in which they decry how he isn’t using his time to do his job (as if the two minutes or so it took to retweet the video had really made a difference to the amount of work he’s doing), and they condemned him for “inciting violence against reporters”.
I think it’s very hypocritical on their part to accuse him of inciting violence for doing this. Lets really look at this situation fairly. Just before Trump’s inauguration as president, CNN ran a piece in which they fantasised about Trump and Pence getting assassinated, because due to the way American law works, Obama would have been able to appoint someone to the role in their place. They even made a point of specifically mentioning that this only applied up until that Friday at noon, as if to hint to any potential lunatics watching “If you want to stop him, make sure you do it before then”.
.@CNN pushed the possibility of Trump being assassinated on Inauguration Day.
This isn’t an incitement of violence. It’s just journalism.
How about the fact that there was a version of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” play, in which an actor portraying Trump is stabbed to death? not only did CNN defend the play, but their parent company, Time Warner, actually sponsored it.
This isn’t an incitement of violence. It’s just a play.
How about when (former) CNN regular, Kathy Griffin put out a video of herself holding what looked like Trump’s decapitated, bloody head? Yes, she was fired by CNN, but only after the backlash she received for doing so. The firing only took place after the backlash, so there’s no evidence to suggest that they would have done so, if there hadn’t been such an uproar.
And then how about the time when some lunatic tried to run on stage during a speech Trump was giving, in an attempt to attack him? CNN gave the guy a platform to speak, and treated him as if he was just a political activist, exercising his right to protest.
This isn’t an incitement of violence. It’s just encouraging young people to get active in politics.
So lets summarise here:
CNN subtly hints that Trump needs to be assassinated before his inaugeration, in order to prevent another Republican from succeeding him. Not inciting violence against Trump.
CNN’s parent company sponsors a play, in which Trump is assassinated. Not inciting violence against Trump.
CNN regular Kathy Griffin posts an image of herself holding a representation of Trump’s decapitated head. Not inciting violence against Trump.
CNN gives a platform to a lunatic who tried to attack Trump, and treats him like a hero in the process. Not inciting violence against Trump.
Trump posts a video, in which he is seen beating up the CNN logo (not any specific person, just the logo itself). “OMG HE’S INCITING VIOLENCE AGAINST JOURNALISTS!!! THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!!!”
Surely I’m not the only one who can see how stupid this whole narrative looks. I think it may actually be even worse than the Russia one. At least that one was complicated enough, that I can actually understand how people might have fallen for it. This though is just completely stupid. The hypocrisy on display is completely self evident. I really think CNN are on the verge of a complete meltdown at this point. They’re just lashing out blindly, trying to see what sticks in their war with Trump. There’s no logic, no planning behind any of it. it’s just hysteria at this point. Long may they continue to humiliate themselves. They deserve nothing less than complete contempt.
A little under a week ago, I wrote a response post to an article published by the Huffington Post, in which the author, a self described feminist, called for the “temporary” disenfranchisement of white males , supposedly in the name of “equality” and “progress”.
The article attracted a massive backlash online, to the point were the Huffington Post deleted the original article (archived here), and used the original link to the article to re-direct to this response.
Huffington Post SA has removed the blog “Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?” published on our Voices section on April 13, 2017.
We have done this because the blog submission from an individual who called herself Shelley Garland, who claimed to be an MA student at UCT, cannot be traced and appears not to exist.
We have immediately bolstered and strengthened our blogging procedures that, until now, have operated on the basis of open communication and good faith. From now on, bloggers will have to verify themselves.
We will hold discussions on putting in place even better quality controls.
In addition, we note the commentary on the content of the blog post and will submit it to the South African Press Ombudsman Joe Thloloe for his analysis of the opinion we carried.
Huffington Post SA stands aligned to the Constitutional values of South Africa, particularly the Preamble of our Constitution which states that: “We the people of South Africa believe that South Africa belongs to all who live in it, united in our diversity.”
We further understand that universal enfranchisement followed a long struggle and we fully support this.
In addition, Huffington Post South Africa is a signatory to and supporter of the South Africa Press Code. We support free expression as limited by the following value as set out in that code.
5. Discrimination and Hate Speech
5.1. Except where it is strictly relevant to the matter reported and it is in the public interest to do so, the media shall avoid discriminatory or denigratory references to people’s race, gender, sex, pregnancy, marital status, ethnic or social origin, colour, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, conscience, belief, culture, language and birth or other status, nor shall it refer to people’s status in a prejudicial or pejorative context.
5.2. The media has the right and indeed the duty to report and comment on all matters of legitimate public interest. This right and duty must, however, be balanced against the obligation not to publish material that amounts to propaganda for war, incitement of imminent violence, or advocacy of hatred that is based on race, ethnicity, gender or religion, and that constitutes incitement to cause harm.
The thing is, I don’t think they were actually sorry at all. This was purely done as a matter of self-preservation. At one point in my response to the article, I made this comment about it.
The more I read on, and see how ridiculous it is, the more I start to think it’s a satirical article, just to annoy people like me. Then again, the Huffington Post really has been terrible in the past, so it probably is real. At the very best, the article might have been submitted by a troll, and isn’t intended seriously, but the Huffington Post still published it, so at the very least, they approve of its message, serious or not.
And it turns out, the article really was satirical in nature. It was actually written by a South African, White man, with the express purpose of proving a point. The idiots at the Huffington Post, so blinded by their hatred of white men, were happy to publish an article that fit their narrative, without any regard for fact checking, discrimination laws, or even if the article was written by a real person. The details behind his motivation for doing what he did can be read here.
Some relevant extracts:
“I just thought you can say almost anything you want . . . not necessarily attacking white men. I think there is a lack of fact-checking in South African journalism. I thought, would it work?
Roodt explained he didn’t target HuffPost specifically and that his main motivation was “the lack of fact-checking in journalism”. He also identified a few stories published by South African media which he believes are inaccurate and which served as his motivation.
He says his blog – which promoted the idea that white men are the cause of a lot of societal malaise and should therefore be denied voting rights – might have been too aggressive or angry. Roodt, however, argues both white and black South Africans tend to generalise about other groups and that these generalisations often go unchecked.
Roodt says he believes the resultant furore might lead to a debate in society about race relations and journalistic ethics. This, he added, was a good thing.
So there you have it. A white South African man creates a fake profile, submits a satirical article to it that is highly discriminatory in its message towards white men, and the Huffington Post happily publishes it, without any regard for the accuracy of the information contained, or the highly offensive nature of it. To think, that there are actually people out there who think this a real news source. It’s nothing more than Buzzfeed tier, garbage of the highest degree.
Anyone who thinks this organisation is trustworthy needs help.
OMG, I’m actually laughing so hard right now. As I’m sure people have seen, the media has been flooded with stories about an apparent increase in hate crimes, ever since Trump became president. Just check out some of the headlines below that show up in Google searches for the term “increase hate crimes Trump”.
Most of these alleged hate crimes usually end up getting debunked very quickly and appearing on fakehatecrimes.org, a few days later. The media never gives as much attention to the debunking of course, as that doesn’t fit the narrative. Therefore, even after they do get debunked, most people still continue to believe that there is some massive epidemic of Neo-Nazi, white supremacists, committing acts of evil against minorities, in the name of Trump.
Anyway, one group that has claimed to be getting targeted a lot as of late, has been the Jews. First of all, there was the story about one of their graveyards getting vandalised. Then there was the stories about how there were dozens of bomb threats being sent to Jewish institutions. The media went into a frenzy over these “antisemitic hate crimes” and started screeching for something to be done to protect the poor innocent Jews, from all the hate they were experiencing (for absolutely no reason of course). Well, the graveyard vandalism, turned out to not be vandalism at all. But sure, the bomb threats were still real, right?
The typical “anti-semitic” hate crime, follows a very predictable trajectory. Usually, a crudely drawn swastika and hate filled message (often poorly spelled for extra effect) are found on the wall of a Jewish business or home. The media goes crazy and starts demanding something be done and there is a big moral panic over the “alarming increase in racial hatred”. A few days pass by and people start asking questions. Suddenly, holes start turning up in the original story, and this causes suspicion. Then the Jew who faked the hate crime is exposed
Israeli police say a 19-year-old man with American and Israeli citizenship is suspected of making threats against Jewish institutions worldwide.
Everyone with any understanding of these situations, predicted this would be the case. Lets just look at it logically. There were dozens of bomb threats being called in against these Jewish institutions, and there was never any actual bomb, not even once. A real antisemite wouldn’t waste time with dozens of hoaxes, because they’d know damn well that the only people who would benefit from it, are the Jews themselves, because of the victimhood points it would give them, and the fact that it could potentially have been used as an excuse to crack down on antisemites.
Police arrested the suspect in the south of Israel on Thursday morning over threats against Jewish communities in the US, New Zealand and Australia.
He was detained by Israeli cyber-fraud police, after an inquiry with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.
Last month an ex-US journalist was arrested for several of the threats.
Yeah, that was some black guy who probably had real mental health problems (not the fake kind the media talk about every single time there’s a Muslim attack), who was more than likely just doing a copy-cat crime, after seeing all the attention the previous bomb threats got.
In fact, that was almost certainly the point in the first place. Make bomb threats against their own people, give these fake threats massive coverage in the media, and hope for some attention seeking lunatic to copy them, then blame it all on Trump and white supremacy. Too bad it was a black guy who copied it instead.
But Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said on Thursday the latest suspect’s motives are unclear.
^See above. I think I figured out the motive very easily. This is pretty common behaviour for Jews. They seem to have a natural inclination towards paranoia, and are constantly expecting the next persecution to occur, at any time. If they aren’t being persecuted, they invent persecution against themselves instead, either to justify their paranoia, and demand some kind of compensation from the rest of society, or to use it as a weapon against their enemies (Trump in this case).
In one of the threats made against a Jewish Community Center (JCC) on 18 January, a caller is heard saying: “In a short time, a large number of Jews are going to be slaughtered.
“There’s going to be a bloodbath that’s going to take place in a short time.”
I wish I could find the video again. I remember listening to it at the time, and it was blatantly obvious it was a Jew making the threat. The voice was a bit distorted, but even so, you could easily make out the stereotypical, nasally, New York Jew accent.
Imagine this voice, but distorted and making threats.
Doron Krakow, president of the JCC Association of North America, said he was “troubled” to hear the suspect is Jewish, adding that he is “hopeful” that the threats have come to an end.
We’ll just have to see. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are other Jews who were involved as well.
Investigators say the Israeli teen used camouflage technologies to disguise the origin of the dozens of calls.
“He didn’t use regular phone lines. He used different computer systems so he couldn’t be backtracked,” Mr Rosenfeld said.
Very clever. Just not clever enough, it seems.
In the US, more than 120 hoax bomb threats have been made against Jewish schools, synagogues and cultural centres since earlier January, according to the Anti-Defamation League.
And the media was having a frenzy, blaming Trump and Trump supporters for it.
There have also been at least three vandalism attacks made against US cemeteries in recent months.
At least one of which we know was caused by mother nature. I wouldn’t be surprised if the other two were vandalised for real though… but by Jews.
The teen is also suspected of making threats against Delta Air Lines, forcing a plane to make an emergency landing in 2015 in order to be searched for explosives.
Israeli’s minister of public safety Gilad Erdan congratulated the police for the arrest.
“We hope that this investigation will help shed light on some of the recent threats against Jewish institutions, which have caused great concern both among Jewish communities and the Israeli government,” he said in a statement.
There is a court order in place preventing the media from reporting the man’s name.
But not his ethnicity ^_^
He will be held under arrest until 30 March, the court ruled.
According to Israeli newspaper Haaretz, the army had refused to draft him on personal grounds, after determining that he was unfit for service.
Probably mentally unfit from the sounds of it.
A reported spike in anti-Jewish incidents led to criticism of the Trump administration, with some saying they did not react quickly or forcefully enough to the hate threats.
Which was the whole point. Fake hate crimes against themselves, then use it as an excuse to criticise Trump. It was so predictable. As soon as I heard about bomb threats being sent to Jewish institutions, I knew a Jew was behind it, just from previous cases.
Last month, the White House denounced the threats and rejected “anti-Semitic and hateful threats in the strongest terms”.
But that damn antisemite, Trump, didn’t denounce them quickly enough. Sure, didn’t you hear that Trump is apparently a Holocaust Denier , just because he didn’t specifically mention the Jews by name, in his speech commemorating the suffering of Holocaust victims? He still acknowledged that it happened of course, but just talked about all “the people” who had suffered, rather than “the Jews”. What a horrible monster he is.
It pledged to provide “support to groups affected by these incidents to enhance public safety”.
And of course, in order to provide this support, they need more funds from tax-payers, and draconian hate speech laws implemented against people who dare criticise the Jews in any way. If they don’t get this money, and these laws, we might see more fake hate crimes being committed.
There’s an old Vladimir Lenin quote that rings true even today. And that quote, is this:
A few days ago, in my post about George W. Bush condemning Trump’s “racism”, I briefly mentioned the point that the reason why he’s coming out to condemn Trump, but stayed silent on Obama, is because the establishment Democrats and Republicans are just two sides of the same coin, and only exist as controlled opposition to one another, in order to give people the illusion of choice. The same can be said in pretty much any two-party dominated political system that exists in the world. One party gets voted into power, and makes decisions that benefit a small handful of elites in power, at the expense of everyone else. The people get pissed off and then vote for the other major party in the next election. This other major party gets into power and makes the same decisions (with maybe a few superficial differences in issues of minor importance), once again for the benefit of a small minority of elites, at the expense of everyone else.
Then, instead of voting for any true opposition, the public goes back to voting for the other major party who have seemingly “changed their ways” or “brought in fresh blood with new ways of thinking” or whatever. Any genuine opposition parties are pushed to the fringe, and the controlled media will either ignore them completely, or will slander them as radicals, who can’t be trusted with power. The fact that the two major parties have already proven themselves untrustworthy multiple times already, whereas these “radicals” have never even been given a chance, is never actually addressed of course. The media exists solely to maintain the status quo for the elites, by feeding the ordinary people information that is part of the approved narrative. It doesn’t exist to actually inform people of the truth. God forbid, if the people were actually well informed on what’s going on and were inclined to support policies that go against those that are approved.
However, it stands to reason that eventually, a lot of people will lose faith in this controlled media as time goes by, as they start to lose credibility for constantly pushing unpopular narratives, or for exposing themselves as liars. This discontent from the public, allows a market niche to develop for alternative media from the mainstream, media which will tell people things that the mainstream media won’t. The establishment have been able to foresee this eventuality, and have taken preemptive strikes to control this opposition, by setting up their own controlled “alternative media”.
These controlled alternatives then try to direct the energy of the opposition away from important issues, by instead focusing their attention on low hanging fruit such as radical feminism, or mass Muslim immigration. While focusing on these easy targets, they tend to ignore, or in some cases (as the video I’m about to post shows) dismiss the real issues that are of concern to us as a people, and which the powers that be want to cover up. Those real issues being, that white people are being targeted for genocide on a global scale, and that the masterminds behind this genocide, are overwhelmingly Jews.
Lets take a look at this video. This video was produced by “Rebel Media”, an organisation owned and run by the Jew, Ezra Levant, which tries to portray itself as edgy and cool, all while arguing within the established limitations that are approved for controlled opposition to discuss. The video claims that white people who think they have a right to live in an ethno-state are stupid for thinking this way. Meanwhile, Ezra Levant is a supporter of the Jew ethno-state, Israel. Of course for anyone in the know, this is hardly surprising. The double standards and hypocrisy of the self-proclaimed “God’s chosen people” is well documented at this point.
So the black dude from the so called “Rebel” media makes a video sneering at “alt-right white nationalists” for wanting to pursue policies that will stop us from going extinct. He also denies the very concept of “white genocide” even existing, and suggests that people who believe in these things are just as bad as “Black Lives Matter” protesters. Of course, this comparison is completely idiotic because:
Alt-Right white nationalists aren’t rioting in the streets, burning cars, or attacking innocent people of different races, unlike BLM.
White genocide is actually a real thing, unlike the idiotic hoaxes that BLM’s entire premise is based upon (a topic I’ve addressed before).
The video is getting absolutely hammered in the comments section, and in the “like to dislike” ratio.
So lets take a look at some of the comments, just in case they get deleted, or the comments section gets closed down later. Believe me, the people are really pissed off about this video. Rebel Media obviously underestimated just how much of their audience is made up of the “Alt-Right White Nationalist” crowd that they’re trying to direct people away from.
It’s nice to see that the video got this (deserved) reaction. I must admit that overall, I’ve generally enjoyed Rebel Media’s content, because they do at least talk about some issues that I think matter. However, when the whole concept of the “Alt-Right” first appeared, they tried to brand themselves as such, and redirect it away from the most important issues of all. This tactic failed miserably, because the true Alt-Right were too stubborn to give an inch in regards to their ideology and didn’t give a damn how controversial they were. Not wanting to be associated with the more taboo elements of the ideology, Rebel Media, much like the rest of the controlled opposition to the mainstream media, has instead tried distancing themselves ever since, and videos like this are a desperate attempt to feign respectability in comparison.
Unfortunately for them, that leaves them in an awkward position. Both sides of the ideological divide are getting more and more extreme, and the center is starting to disappear. Those who are left in the middle are pretty much being forced to take a side or get left behind. To the Antifa, anti-Trump, SJW crowd, organisations like Rebel Media are just as bad as actual Nazis. To the Alt-Right crowd (which yes, does include genuine Nazis), Rebel Media is nothing more than a “bunch of leftist cucks”. In a sense, Rebel Media is going to be left in a position where they appeal to nobody, and are hated by everybody. They’re too hardcore for the mainstream, but they’re too soft for the rapidly growing counter-culture.
It will be interesting to see what the future holds for the likes of Rebel Media and other controlled opposition to the mainstream. Will they move further to the mainstream, eventually settling into a more “Fox News for a younger audience” like position? Or, will they try to keep appealing to the audience they were set up to appeal to in the first place? Honestly, I can’t see them pulling off either of these positions. I think the most likely thing is that they’ll see their audience shrink and either cease to exist in a few years time, or hit a certain level that they’ll never be able to grow beyond again.
The New York Times is widely considered to be one of the most reliable and trusted new sources in the Western World, and has been considered arguably, the gold standard of journalism for more than a century. The New York Times has also been one of the most vocal critics in the media’s current ongoing war against Trump. With the possible exceptions of CNN (which has seen its credibility collapse at this point) or the likes of the Huffington Post and Buzzfeed (neither of which really qualify as news anyway), no organisation has been more vicious in its attacks against Trump, than the New York Times. With all the credibility that the NYT has built up over the past century, it’s perfectly understandable that people will be inclined to trust them. When you have an organisation like the NYT opposing you, and have the likes of Fox News supporting you, it really doesn’t do much to help your own credibility. However, I believe that there’s a major conflict of interest for the NYT in regards to Donald Trump, and I believe this conflict of interest can potentially bias their reporting on him.
Mexican Billionaire Carlos Slim has taken a financial hammering since Trump rose to political prominence. In dollar terms, at least, nobody has lost more, Bloomberg reports.
By Bloomberg’s reckoning, the telecom magnate’s personal fortune fell from just below $67 billion on June 15, 2015—the eve of Trump’s presidential bid commencement—to about $51 billion this Wednesday. Where he’d once held pole-position on the Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index, he’s now in sixth.
A drop of $16 Billion in the space of a year and a half, is an awful lot. If such a loss really could be attributed to the actions of one man (Trump), you could probably expect him to hold a grudge against him.
Asset losses are a multi-factored affair and Slim’s personal value actually peaked in October 2014 when he was worth $81 billion—but Trump’s Mexico-bashing has apparently hacked away at the value of his asset base. In 2015, Forbes listed him as the year’s biggest billionaire loser. Although the Peso has rallied in recent weeks, it plummeted through 2016, forcing Mexico to raise interest rates. And when the Peso slumps, so does Slim.
Or so the thinking goes.
Just wait until the Glorious Leader actually builds the wall. If the Peso (and by extension, Slim’s fortune) is taking this much of a beating already, can you imagine how bad it will get for him when the wall is finished?
But a surprising flip-side to the 77-year-old telecoms tycoon’s monetary losses has been his gain in popularity. When Slim met Trump in Mar-a-Lago for, what the latter described as “a lovely dinner with a wonderful man” last December, many Mexicans were impressed. A poll conducted by El Universal the following month reportedly showed Slim pipping populist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador as the Mexican considered best-suited to face Trump.
Yeah, but I’m sure if given the choice he’d prefer to have the 16 Billion Dollars though.
“16 Billion Dollars in exchange for greater popularity? Hmm, I’d be happier with the 16 Billion Dollars.”
According to Bloomberg, it’s not only Slim’s defiance of Trump but his calls for greater economic self-reliance that have appealed to Mexicans. A price war and regulatory crackdown pushing down cell phone bills might have helped too.
Anyway, you may be wondering how this article about a billionaire losing 16 Billion Dollars because of Trump has anything to do with the NYT. Well, it’s very simple. Look at who the biggest single shareholder in the NYT is.
Now lets be realistic here. A newspaper is just like any other business. Its main purpose is to work towards the interests of its shareholders. A successful Trump presidency, in which he manages to accomplish the goals he has set out to accomplish, will damage the financial interests of the NYT’s largest shareholder of all. Therefore, is it really a stretch to say that it is in the interest of the NYT to undermine the Trump presidency as much as possible, in order to prevent him from accomplishing his goals, and thus in the process, protect the financial interests of their largest shareholder?
I fully support the concept of an uncontrolled and independent press, who are free to report on things, without fear of government suppression for doing so. However, ordinary people seem to forget that journalists are ultimately just employees who have employers to answer to, and these employers are human beings with interests of their own. There is no such thing as a truly unbiased source for news. Every news source is run by a human being, not an emotionless robot, and so it stands to reason that every news source has the potential to reflect the interests and biases of the person in control. This doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re automatically going to be wrong when discussing certain topics because of it, but it does mean that people should consider these potential biases and conflicts of interest, instead of automatically taking whatever they say on board. Sure, this blog is also completely biased, but at least I’m upfront and honest about it.
