Just like in my last blog I was curious to see how the media covered events in the past few weeks. It has become popular to condemn people on social media and condemn the President. If you don’t call Trump names you’ll most likely be told to sit in the corner because you’re a “fascist” a “racist” or a “Nazi.” The Democratic party and the angry people in the media basically follow the idea; if Trump wants it I must oppose it. No matter what. Some very obvious American hating propaganda is everywhere at the moment.
What I’ve found is that there are great reporters on both sides of the American political debate and there are poor ones as well. Sometimes you just have to search to find the better ones, which is what I’ve done. Along with my own research and investigating of course. I wanted to look past the negativity brewing and the name calling and really see what is going on behind the scenes. This includes the party of hate, children being used for anti-Trump propaganda, a Women’s March to Islam, people comparing Trump to Hitler. You’ll have to read it to believe it.
The Party of Hate
Since the election, hate crimes and violence have taken over America and swarmed the streets. Journalists and people who support Trump are very likely to get threats, hate mail, and vile comments thrown at them via social media. Some comments even tell people that they are a disgrace to their race. The Berkeley riots and terrorist acts have shown the Republicans and conservatives are now in a political war.
For a college that fought so hard for the Free Speech Movement in 1964, they have ironically turned back the clock and betrayed everything they stood for. Milo Yiannopoulus a conservative entertainment figure was invited by Berkeley College Republicans to speak. Now of course the liberals have proved how delusional they are by calling him a “Nazi”, “white supremacist”, and a “fascist. You can’t call someone a Nazi or Hitler because it’s impossible to compare anyone to Hitler. Not to mention it’s an unspeakable insult to Holocaust survivors to trivialize their horrors and throw the word around just because you don’t agree with someone.
The protests happened first, but then the University was taken over by a group of people in ninja like outfits with black masks on their face. How can the protesters be protesting their own fascism? I’m sure they’re wearing masks so they aren’t grounded by their parents as most of them most likely still live at home. On their wild night out the rioters set fire to stuff, broke windows threw fireworks, attacked innocent women and people who were generally just curious to hear Milo speak. Here is a testimonial from a woman who was beaten. These women were pepper sprayed and beaten with flag poles and the Left decided to call it a victory. The celebrity endorsement of violence in the mainstream media is clear:
What happened at Berkeley was almost a mirror of the violence and rioting that happened on inauguration day as well. Both celebrities and the liberal media gave the terrorist groups a spotlight who show up uninvited and disrupt the somewhat peaceful protests. Same people with black masks. Same tactics. The only difference is the group on inauguration day call themselves #Disrupt J20, but the group at Berkeley call themselves Antifa. They could just admit what they really are:
You can bet that the mainstream media subtly applauded these acts, well you could say they left out the very important part about violence, and painted them as protests instead. They were riots not protests. The Berkeley Student Paper praised the anti-Milo protests. Time goes as far to say that riots are a necessary part of the evolution of society. CNN has a video with the title, Trump slams Berkeley protests. In the New York Times, Berkeley cancels Milo Yiannapoulus speech and Trump tweets outrage. Wait for it though it gets even better. There was a conspiracy that Milo had organised the riots. Cough, fake news. To find out what actually happened I took a look at some other news sources. I was interested to see Milo’s response to the riots and he composed himself very well in this interview on Fox News where he discussed political violence.
A number of other people on the Right have shared their opinions on the horrific events that have unfolded. Dr. Michael Savage’s comparison between extreme anti-Trump supporters and the tactics used by Nazi Brown Shirts seems quite fitting. This isn’t to say that these people are Nazi’s but it shows how far they’re willing to go. All you have to do is look at Antifa anarchists tactics, and communist German anarchists whose violent and intimidation tactics helped Hitler rise to power in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The Sturmabteilung men known as Storm Troopers, or Brown Shirts, protected Party meetings, marched in Nazi rallies and physically assaulted political opponents. The only difference today, as this great article points out, is that these people like Antifa are not Nationalists. These people are Marxist Communists and they are international. They’re wreaking havoc in America and Europe and people surprisingly support it:
What is even more uncanny is the way the police, media, and local figures turn a blind eye. They seem to condone these illegal acts of violence on behalf of a totalitarian government which thinks they are above the law. This is exactly what Storm Troopers did. Nazism was destroyed in 1945 and Communism slowly faded away, but Internationalism Socialism lived on in Western Countries. It’s in the media, in the education system, Universities, where professors and deceptive teaching leads to brainwashed adolescents. The Left follow an ideology that is set on ruining American society and their civil rights.
If you aren’t convinced by recent events, this video shows a professor who screamed and shouted swear words at police because they wouldn’t attack a conservative speaker. In another case, Yvette Felarca, a national organiser of left-wing militant activist group By Any Means Necessary was featured on the Tucker Carlson show. Yvette is a middle school teacher who was very happy to say Milo should not be allowed to speak anywhere. In the video you can see her throwing a man to the ground. These people are somehow allowed to teach. Here we have another video of a Dallas teacher pointing a water gun saying “die” to a video of Trump. The worst one has to be these videos though. These poor children were made to read an anti-Trump message. How disturbing that these children are being used for political bias that they have no clue about. Let them go outside to play and just be children! It looks like the liberal media have learnt some cues from Hamas, Hezbollah, and ISIS who use children to spread propaganda.
Well, the examples above explain where the education system in America has gone wrong. These young people are being manipulated to destroy the country from within. As Robert Spencer points out in this well-presented article, the Democratic Party has painted their opposition as enemies for years and even decades. He noticed the hostility and vicious hatred that the Left directed at Ronald Reagan back in the 80’s. It all falls under Saul Alinksy’s rule number five which says that ridicule is man’s most potent weapon:
Years ago, the Democratic Party as a whole, along with the entire Leftist establishment, adopted the Alinskyite tactic of ridiculing, mocking and smearing their foes instead of engaging them on the level of ideas. Leftists today routinely portray their opponents as simultaneously stupid and evil, idiotic but crafty; it’s practically a reflex.
If we rewind back to the early 2000’s it’s easy to see that the Left was stirring up this kind of trouble long before Trump took office. Their behaviour during the election and after the election is not normal at all and completely un-American. Republicans and conservatives have remained peaceful, but things are only going to get worse. Conservatives may have to even adopt some of the same tactics the left are using to protect themselves. Author, speech writer and columnist, Peggy Noonan, wrote an article in the Wall Street Journal in 2006 which sums the situation up perfectly:
What is most missing from the left in America is an element of grace — of civic grace, democratic grace, the kind that assumes disagreements are part of the fabric, but we can make the fabric hold together. The Democratic Party hasn’t had enough of this kind of thing since Bobby Kennedy died. What also seems missing is the courage to ask a question. Conservatives these days are asking themselves very many questions, but I wonder if the left could tolerate asking itself even a few. Such as: Why are we producing so many adherents who defy the old liberal virtues of free and open inquiry, free and open speech? Why are we producing so many bullies? And dim dullard ones, at that.
2. Women’s March
The media praises the Women’s March and said it gives voice to a roar of resistance. The numbers and historical turnout cannot be denied. Yet it would be interesting to know if the women wearing p***y hats were aware, or cared to know, who the organisers of the Women’s March actually were. Like many of the Left-wing charades this was yet another attempt to show their superiority and reject anyone who did not accept socialism, reject pro-life supporters, and banish women who voted for Trump. For those who are interested to look beyond such obvious indoctrination, the facts will come as quite a shock.
One of the main organisers of the Women’s March, Linda Sarsour, is a Palestinian-American activist, Linda Sarsour. She is also the executive director of Arab American Association of New York which was created after 9/11. Huffington Post and many others quickly jumped to her defense and that she had been targeted by viscous Islamophobic attacks online after the march. All you have to do is look at Twitter to see how openly Linda romanticizes Sharia Law based on her own personal experience, apparently:
Wait a minute. Sharia Law allows a man to marry an infant at the age of 9, rape women, women can lose custody of their children in divorce, and women can’t drive. Sharia Law has already weaved it’s way into the UK, and spread through Europe, and even into America. It’s not hidden it’s all in plain sight. The ideal Islamic state is Saudi Arabia where Sharia Law is enforced with brutality. As you can see Linda seems to have a very different definition though:
Well Linda you sure did pull the wool over their eyes.
To get a better grasp on the March it was important to look at the funding, politics, and stance taken. What the march forgot to mention is that it is not a Women’s March, it’s an anti-Trump march. There are claims that George Soros has ties to at least 50 organisations, out of the 403 groups that funded the march. Names include Planned Parenthood which are against Trump’s anti-abortion stance, Amnesty International, and the National Resource Defense Council, who strongly oppose Trump’s environmental views.
At the end of the day, Madonna talking about blowing up the White House, and celebrities whining on stage, including convicted criminals, were not the most evident symbol. The biggest symbol was the Muslim veil. There was shock and even anger that women in America, and non-Muslims, were wearing the hijab. Cheri Berens, an American who has lived in Egypt for years working as a researcher for the Egyptian Ministry of Culture wrote a blog titled, Women’s March to Islam? She says that for Muslim women in Egypt who watched the scenes in Washington D.C it was disturbingly familiar:
The women in the coffee shop began to get visibly agitated. One said, “We have been fighting to remove the headscarf. Why are these stupid women putting them on?”
Berens explains further that women who refuse to wear the hijab are made to suffer:
In Muslim countries such as Egypt, women who do not wear the headscarf are often sexually harassed or attacked. They are beaten, they are raped; and sometimes they are killed. In 2012, when the Muslim Brotherhood took power, there were several attacks on Christian women on trains. They were grabbed, their hair chopped off, and they were pushed off the fast-moving train. They were told they must wear a headscarf even though they are not Muslim.
So did the March somehow become a message about getting Islam into the White House? In the real world, you can’t claim to stand for rights as a woman and wear a veil that would take away your rights. These women in the photo below have insulted everything the American flag stands for.
The women who truly respect women’s rights were not given an invitation to this march, they watched silently from the sidelines, their voices were not heard, and they’re not convinced. Instead, they peacefully marched for pro-life where Muslim veils and profanities were non-existent. But hey, the media bias was on full display when certain outlets chose to give them barely any coverage even though Vice President Mike Pence made a speech.
3. Anti-Abortion Signed by Men, Roe v Wade Signed by Men
The trending photo on Twitter that has come up is this photo of Trump signing his anti-abortion executive order. It was shared on my news feed and people expressed their disgust that men were deciding the fate on what women can do with their bodies. Fair enough ladies. Remember Roe v Wade. The Supreme Court were a room full of men who decided the fate of abortion in 1973 by declaring it legal under the Fourteenth Amendment.
The abortion debate has divided the nation and constantly nudges at people’s conscience. Fast forward to 40 years and there have been more than 50 million abortions. Where are the protests and outrage over that. Of course it isn’t considered genocide because these babies are unborn. Very often the media like to make out that all women are somehow for abortion and don’t present both sides of the angle.
It would be amazing if mainstream media notice this mature 16 year old, Autumn, who made such a bold and powerful statement in a response to harmful messages in Teen Vogue. The article is about what to get a friend post-abortion and makes it sound like it’s something to celebrate. Girl power. It’s like someone gave the writer some strange gags and gifts and said here write about this. The language used in the article suggests all teenagers skip into the clinic like they’re getting their hair done. Check out Autumn’s strong and moving speech here.
As a final thought, I think it is fair to be either pro-choice or pro-life. What people shouldn’t do is force someone else to pay for their abortion. If you say women should only have control over their bodies, why should the government be involved with what you do with your body? Pro-life women have had to fork out money to fund abortions that goes against their beliefs and everything they stand for. Now they are the ones who finally get to celebrate and rejoice with a President who finally stands up for the unborn. Something that hasn’t happened since the days of Ronald Reagan.
4. The Refugee Ban, Yes REFUGEE Ban
This will be a good game. Try to count how many times you’ve seen Trumps immigration refugee order referred to as the “Muslim Ban” in the media. I tried to count. I got to about 60 and gave up. Just to be clear it’s a 90-day ban on travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Also known as the Visa Waver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015, what a mouth full. These countries were already established by Obama as terrorist hot spots, and Trump made it clear he wished to secure the borders then of course there was an uproar. The experts and media like to call it a “Muslim Ban” though.
Media outlets who frequently say “Muslim Ban” include the New York Times, Stuff, Vox, The Guardian and there are many others. Now the use of language I find strange here is the rush to call it a “Muslim Ban.” It’s not a Muslim ban, but as history has shown the media have censored their language when it comes to Islam. To criticize Islam would be deemed as Islamophobic. Trump has made it clear he is against illegal aliens. His wife is a legal immigrant. The difference is very big. Legal. Illegal.
There seems to be a piece missing from the puzzle though. The media is so focused on painting Trump as the enemy that they forget to mention they have represented Muslims negatively in the media for decades. Both before 9/11 and afterwards under Bush and Obama. Every journalist knows that trauma, crime, and natural disasters make the best news. Hence why terrorist and suicide bombers always make the headlines. The use of the language “Muslim Ban” was no accident it is a clever play on words. It was used to evoke an emotional response from viewers.
If the media are so concerned about such a ban surely there would be more Muslim guests featured on cable news to give some clear evidence. I have seen very few shows that show Muslim experts or people who say the ban has impacted them directly. That’s why I don’t buy it. This is not limited to conservative news either. As the image shows below, Fox News featured the most Muslim speakers regarding the ban, but CNN didn’t:
It’s evident that liberal media outlets have a certain narrative embedded in how they portray the news. With the rise of violence, ISIS, and the election Muslims have become the main topic for political debate. They are often scrutinized and studied by outsiders yet they are never invited to the VIP party to express their views. Awkward. The approach taken by the liberal media is to inspect and talk about the “Muslim Ban” but what seems strange about the picture is that there is usually a panel of male non-Muslims talking about it.
People are quick to give sympathy and pity Muslims, the country cries out to let them in, but they do not believe Muslims should contribute to the discussion. Do I smell hypocrisy in the air. By excluding Muslim voices from the media it only enhances stereotypes against Muslims. It’s well known fact that Western countries only get their source of news through the media and the results can shape their view of the Middle East significantly. A survey by Pew proves American’s know little or nothing about Islam, while 68% of Muslims in seven countries believe Westerners are selfish.
What is happening in the media is that Muslims are described as victims in a one-sided argument when really they aren’t. The award winning and eye opening documentary, Jihad in America: The Grand Deception, shows how the media can be swayed at times but it is up to the viewer to decide. An Islamic Society of North America spokeswoman for CAIR says in the documentary:
“Media in the US is very gullible. If you have something to say, especially as a Muslim; they’ll come running to you. Take advantage of that!”
5. Make America Great Again
I could go on and on with a long list of things that have happened but one thing that was a light in all the darkness was this. Seeing Melanie Trump open the Florida rally with the Lord’s prayer. It was very touching to see her hold her head high after the media have attacked her and called her terrible names which I won’t repeat here. What is such a shame is how the left made fun of her for praying. I find it odd that liberals are so against Christianity and strong advocates for Islam. If women can march around wearing the hijab a strong intelligent women can say the Lord’s prayer.
In dark and desperate times like these we could all use a little prayer. A prayer for America as the Left try to destroy the country instead of sharing it with others. The media has aided the Democratic Party for years and handed out rioters like candy. For the not my President fans look around at the madness that is unfolding and the people you associate yourselves with. They’re turning into everything they supposedly hate while the real enemy has yet to show their face. What is encouraging is seeing people fight to protect their country and culture. They’ve had enough. They’ve also had enough of the mainstream media who can report local news and the weather, but are too busy taking sides to report the real facts. Right now, more than ever, good journalists are critical to ensuring objectivity and fairness. Although we may not always agree with what they say, its important to respect journalists who are dedicated to get to the core and find out the truth. We need that now more than ever.
