I made the case a few days ago about the personal dichotomy but it goes much larger than that. In this vein you have a positive outlook while there is a volcano of negativity surrounding you constantly. It is the feeling of being bombarded from everywhere by constant negativity no matter what good you see happening. Wonder why?
Meanwhile, the left and its media comrades bash the president on every word they can. What he does in his policies not as much. Most of his policies have had positive outcomes and the fruits are all around us, for anyone who wants to see them. But those never get the attention in the airwaves. Instead we are treated to a cascading critique over every little word he speaks. When Trump zooms in on the fake news, they cry foul and abuse.
Media delivers the goods. They are judge, jury, and executioners — the Full-Court Press.
A perfect example of this playing out was on Don Lemon this week. He had notoriously vile Rick Wilson, Republican turned Republican hater, commenting on the nature of Trump and his supporters. Wilson turned it into a mockery diatribe of dumb, redneck supporters who succumbed to Trump’s every word and command. Lemon busted out laughing to the point of being out of control like it was a comedy show. So they all had a barrel of laughs at the expense of mocking Trump voters.
The following night, Don Lemon’s focus of attack was at Trump for picking on the media. How cruel it was. Press is again the biggest victim. It’s a little hard to feel sorrow for the villainous media when they attack people for voting a certain way.
But when they play that victim card, they demand everyone’s sympathy. And they demand your anger is turned to blame Trump and his nefarious supporters. It’s our fault. How can media be the real victims when they regularly attack voters in prime time?
Never mind the voters and people across the country they insult every day. This creates a nice flashpoint every time they choose to ignite it. In typical faux fashion, Lemon came on the next night, before playing the victim card, claiming he was not laughing at the people but at the joke. But the entire joke was us and the punch line was very clear…. us.
Even though the House Managers put on their slipshod impeachment trial in the Senate, the media treated it with the solemn certitude of a State funeral, complete with nonstop coverage and commentary. But it was a joke. The whole thing was like a comedy sketch with no off ramp that eventually has to end. Everyone knows it but can’t find an exit.
And when it did end, with the predictable results, they poo-poohed their own play as a dismal failure because it did not achieve the desired end. We could have told them that. But instead of blaming their own lousy script and collective performance, they lashed out by attacking the audience for failing to deliver success to them.
No one could convince them their work was only a mockery of the process; they refused to listen. So they created a narrative in the House that didn’t sell in the Senate — and they even went about that deviously. They still want you to see them all as victims.
Did they really think they could sell their creation on perception and glitter? Fool’s gold.
