If Fascism Ever Does Come To America Media Will Goose Step In Line

As usual, rather than report and analyze dispassionately and responsibly, the media are collectively freaking out over revelations that the Clinton Foundation actually raised lots of money from lots of people.

 

That some of those people also met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state is supposed to signify something horrible, nefarious, devious, and no good.

 

And never mind that only a small fraction of the people who donated to the Clinton Foundation later met with Secretary of State Clinton, and never mind that those who did were exactly the type of people who normally meet with secretaries of state.

 

Whatever Hillary Clinton does is automatically cast as a conspiracy, even if those so casting can't manage to explain what exactly she conspired to do.

 

There are calls to shut the Clinton Foundation down—never mind the tens of millions of people who have benefited from its efforts, and never mind that many people whose lives the foundation is saving inevitably will be lost.

 

We are told that this is about optics. By the people whose jaundiced view of the Clintons perpetually prevents them from even seeing the Clintons. A charity that is lauded by objective monitors must be sacrificed to the bile of those who simply hate the Clintons for being Clintons.

 

Aside from the politics, which the Clintons themselves long have become accustomed to having to stomach, this is utterly depraved. And it reveals the Clinton critics once again as incapable of empathy or understanding, not only for the Clintons themselves, but for anyone who benefits from their good works.

 

American schoolchildren. Those suffering from HIV/AIDS. The Clinton critics just can't comprehend that some people do good deeds just for the sake of doing good deeds, and that the lives of the people who benefit from those good deeds might actually be more important than petty political hatreds. This latest effort of the Clinton Conspiracy Complex is without question the most cruel and cynical yet.

 

The media want a horse race. It's better for the ratings. They don't care about the public good.

 

They've also spent decades trying to tear the Clintons down, and rather than their perpetual failures inspiring them to contrition and self-reflection, they only make them burrow ever deeper into the fetid muck of their own febrile fantasies.

 

They're not capable of discussing or analyzing detailed policy, and it infuriates them that the Clintons are capable and actually enjoy doing it.

 

It infuriates them that Hillary Clinton won't cater to their fragile need to convince themselves of their own self-importance by indulging perpetually puerile questions about trivialities. They're so desperate to convince themselves of the rectitude of their own narratives that they're incapable of realizing the degree to which they have revealed themselves, now more than ever.

 

People's lives are at stake, and the media don't care. The future of the country and the world are at stake, and the media don't care. The least fit nominee for president in living memory, if not all of American history, is the only alternative to Hillary Clinton's election, and no one is asking that the media skew their agenda to help her win, but it would be nice if they would stop skewing their agenda to undermine her.

 

Donald Trump wants to gut our most important international security alliance.

 

He demonizes and caricatures people based on their race, their religion, and their gender.

 

He has no respect for basic civil and human rights, and he has offered no detailed policies on anything.

 

He doesn't debate, he incites.

 

He doesn't inspire, he inflames.

 

Fact checkers have to work overtime to catalogue his unprecedented litany of lies.

 

And yet the media normalize his extremism. It is she who receives the most negative media coverage.

 

Historians will look back on this election with shock and condemnation. Did it really come to this? Did we really face this abyss? And did we, as a nation, survive it? Right now, the polls look very good, but that's primarily because the American people seem to be smarter and more responsible than the ostensible information gatekeepers.

 

But when the histories are written, the condemnation will fall not only on Donald Trump and those Republicans who support or enable him—the media's role will be prominent.

 

We look likely to escape disaster this year, but the lesson is clear: If fascism ever does come to America, the media will be goose-stepping right in line.

When what a football player does or doesn't do, is more important than the most vile people on the planet trying to shut down a charity that will cost people there lives just to score political points, and win an election to make sure billionaires get another tax cut. You are one of those that need to be fed to ISIS to have your head separated from your shoulders.

 

And if you are more worried about Tim Tebow, than a charity that helps millions of people, including children. I'm happy to give ISIS the knife they need to do the job.

What can one expect when the mainstream media are owned by six conservative corporations?

 

Ever since the swiftboating of John Kerry, tearing down the good and trying to paint it as evil, has become a major pastime of the right .... In this case, The Clinton Foundation and Hillary's accomplishments as Secretary of State. It is another form of Goebbel's Big Lie principle: Say it loud enough and often enough, and the uninformed will come to believe it as truth.

another one of these threads predicting what already happened.

 

Instincts can imagine as many steps forward as lifetimes arrive here so far. The only thing missing is the actual events only happened in the moment here kinetically.

 

same crap thought management that takes place in climate change threads.

^^ Dumbass thinks media outlets are owned by conservative corporations.

NBC is conservative? Disney is conservative? GE is conservative? TimeWarner is conservative?

 

It appears you don't understand what "conservative" means.

As you imply it or as it applies to anyone defending their selected beliefs is a conservative to that form of ideology? everyone else thinking other wise is a liberal or progressive, or wrong, or evil, or anti social, mentally ill, and the list of game rules to applied caricature are all played the same way from every society's citizens getting even with their ancestry for not asking them if they wanted to be alive now.

 

Misery works together to make sure no one enjoys their time passing through the moment here kinetically. here is a couple of caricatures literal truths use to manage ancestry generation to generation.

 

Kinetic results are products of God, Allah, Karma, climate change, existential evolution along a time line and potential differences of opinions is Satan on the world stage directing societal evolution eternally.

 

How's that? Oh, that is just the up and down axis, forgot the two others framing 4 cornered triangulation on a horizontal intellectual playing field of comparing ideological possibilities it has to be done any other time than now or here.

 

simple, exact, concise, completely accurate regardless the theater of humanity?
