I don’t want the ‘Mainstream’ Media to Acknowledge and Condemn Leftwing Corruption and Thuggery.
Really, I could not care less about the media.
If the media wants to ignore the blatant election theft taking place in Florida, whatever.
Did you really expect anything else?
And I’m done trying to get the media to acknowledge that the left has taken a mobbish and violent turn. I know full well the media will never discourage and disavow Antifa.
By begging the media to please, please care about our plight, we continue to give credence to the idea that the “mainstream” media still actually matters.
We’re also admitting that we don’t really matter; we’re admitting that we’re just the “alternative media” and nothing we do or say really means a damn. We’re saying, “We can scream about Antifa and Broward County ’til we’re blue in the face, but until the ‘Mainstream’ media actually starts talking about it, nothing will actually happen and no one will be held accountable.” We’re admitting that.
Sitting here all day begging the Democratic Media to stop being the Democratic Media and take our side is utterly ridiculous. It makes us look foolish and desperate.
We’re the high school losers still trying to fit in with the Cool Crowd after the Cool Crowd has long since told us to shove it, losers, and poured milk on our heads.
*milk dripping down head* “LOL, that was a good one, Chad! Hilarious! So can I *voice cracks* hang with you and your friends after school? No? That’s cool, I’m sure you’re busy with something. Wait–don’t go! My parents are gone this weekend, we can totally throw a party at my place! Alright, I’ll call you–do I have your number? No? I’ll just get it from somebody else! See you this weekend, bro!”
Why on earth would we believe a media that exists to propagandize for the Democratic Party would care about Democratic Party corruption and thuggery?
Why would we leave our fate in their hands? Why would we leave it up to them to hold the Democratic Party accountable?
They are the Democratic Party.
“Well, we’ve brought attention to the corruption and thuggery of the left. Now we can only hope CNN/CBS/NYT/WaPo/ABC/NBC will take it from here and bring the malefactors to justice!”
You and I both know the media exists to propagandize for the Democratic Party. So why do we pretend that suddenly the Democratic Media will start fighting our battles against the Democratic Party for us if we just beg enough, or if we have enough #Facts and #Logic to support our claims?
#Facts and #Logic don’t mean shit. Being objectively right doesn’t matter. The media will never help us. Ever.
So I’ve given up on trying to get the media to Condemn and Call Out Democratic corruption and thuggery. I’m done pretending NYT/WaPo/CBS/NBC/ABC are even remotely objective or “mainstream”. I’m done playing that game.
They must be treated as the 100% partisan propaganda outfits they are.
The reason I bring attention to the Democratic Party’s corruption and thuggery is to get our side pissed off.
I want our side to become as angry as the left has been for years.
I want our side out in the streets. I want our side amassing and protesting every little thing the left does.
I want them to be scared to win because of all the havoc we’ll wreak–the way we feel about them.
And while I hate that it’s come to this, maybe we need our own shock troops on the front lawns of prominent leftists shouting threats at their wives and children.
I can hear your gasp, “No! We’re better than that!”
Yes, we are. But what has it gotten us?
We’ve tried the high road. It doesn’t work.
Cable news will still portray us as the bad guys and Antifa as the good guys. You get clubbed across the face with a bat by some Antifa scum and the media will say, “That Nazi had it coming.”
We will never get any sympathy.
I know what your next objection is, “We can’t let them portray as as calling for violence!”
Uh, seriously? They already do. They tried to blame the Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooter on us even though he despised Trump. Don Lemon of CNN calls white men the single greatest terror threat in this country. After any mass shooting, they say that anyone who doesn’t support their gun control agenda Wants More Dead Teenagers.
They not only already portray us as the violent ones, but they encourage and enable leftwing violence against us in the process.
A rabid horde of Antifa literally lays siege to Tucker Carlson’s wife and kids in their home, and the media’s response is, “Well, maybe if Tucker wasn’t a #WHITENATIONALIST then he’d be left alone!”
This is where we are as a country.
Understand: I am not calling for any behavior or action the left hasn’t already done to us.
Stop holding out hope that the Reasonable Moderates of both sides will come together and marginalize the violent fringes. While we condemn and disavow ours til we’re blue in the face, the left enables and encourages its violent fringe, meaning the left and its violent fringe are one and the same.
News flash: you don’t “win” by being a victim of leftwing thuggery and corruption. You will not be awarded any Moral Points by the media. The media will not cover our side in a favorable light if we are the victims of wrongdoing or injustice.
In fact, the media will be actively enabling and/or promoting that wrongdoing and injustice. The media is now calling you a “conspiracy theorist” for raising alarms over the attempted election theft in Broward County–even after the media pushed the baseless “TRUMP RUSSIA COLLUSION” conspiracy theory for two straight years.
I feel like our mindset is, “Yes, the left is getting increasingly violent and intolerant, but so long as we remain passive, nonviolent and committed to free speech, our inherent moral goodness and rightness will somehow carry us to victory in the end!”
“Yes, well, the left stole our rightfully-won Senate seat in Florida, but at least we Took The High Road. That has got to count for something down the line!”
No, it won’t.
There is no such thing as karma—not in politics, not at all.
Karma is the belief that if you take it on the chin enough and don’t do shit about it, somehow, some higher cosmic power will bring justice to your enemies sooner or later.
It is such a loser’s mentality: “Someone else will fight my battles for me!”
Stop believing in karma. Stop believing that you’ll win in the end not because of actions you proactively take, but by passively sitting by and waiting for “karma” to kick in.
That path ends with you wasting your life waiting for good things to happen to you instead of making good things happen for yourself.
In fact, the opposite of karma is generally true in this life: those who do evil and get away with it are more likely to do it again.
Stop being a bystander in your own life. Stop being helpless in the face of evil.
Being censored by Silicon Valley does not make you a martyr. Last week my blog got taken down by Medium and I’m not sitting here whining about it and waiting for some cosmic force to administer justice on my behalf.
I immediately moved my blog to a new site and started anew, more resolved than ever to fight and defeat the left. The only way I can “win” is if I prove that they cannot silence me. And doing this is entirely on me. I can’t expect someone to do it for me.
In no way did I see my blog getting taken down by a lefty tech company as a “win” on my part. I did not feel victorious in victimhood. I did not feel as if I would ultimately have the last laugh because of “karma”. I did not think I was still the Better Person because I believe in free speech and they don’t. It was not a “moral victory” for me.
They silenced me, so they won–for the time being.
Karma ain’t gonna beat the left for us.
Karma ain’t gonna save Rick Scott’s Senate seat for us.
The only thing that will save us is action we take ourselves. Fortunately it seems like Rick Scott’s people understand this.
For our part, we need to work to bring about the demise of the Democratic media. Stop treating NYT/WaPo/CNN et al as more credible than we are.
Treat them like the partisan propaganda factories they are.
Our talking heads need to stop making appearances on those cable networks, stop citing articles from those newspapers and, for the love of God, stop begging those outlets to fight our battles for us. They are the enemy.
Ignore reports that come from NYT and WaPo the way the left ignores reports that come from Breitbart and Daily Caller. Dismiss it all as partisan hackery.
Daily Caller (specifically Luke Rosiak) has been reporting on the Awan/Wasserman-Schultz House IT scandal for over a year and nobody beyond of the right knows anything about it because the Daily Caller isn’t seen as a “credible mainstream news source.” Rosiak’s reporting, which is objectively better than 99% of the anonymously-sourced “reporting” in NYT/WaPo, is dismissed as dubious partisan nuttery.
We need to start treating the NYT and WaPo with the same disrespect and contempt that the left treats Breitbart/Daily Caller and the rest of our outlets.
And we need to stop acting like the leftwing media are the only ones who can hold the left accountable.
The more we marginalize the leftwing media, the less power the leftwing media has to influence and bully law enforcement, politicians, judges, businesses and organizations.
If we marginalize the media, we eliminate a great deal of the left’s cultural power and ability to both intimidate and socially reward.
We need to focus on building up our own media outlets that will marginalize and compete with the left’s (in case you haven’t been following, the left’s media = NYT/WaPo/CNN/CBS/ABC/NBC. When I say “the left-wing media” I don’t mean outlets that are openly leftwing like ThinkProgress, Vox, MSNBC, etc. I mean the big ones that pretend to be “mainstream” while pumping out Democratic Propaganda 24/7.)
The name of the game is repeal and replace the leftwing media: there should not be a single Republican reading NYT/WaPo or watching CNN/CBS/ABC/NBC–just as no Democrats watch Fox News or read Breitbart/Daily Caller.
Again: being more virtuous doesn’t win wars. If an Antifa smashes you in the head with a bike lock and you don’t fight back, you haven’t “won”–even if the video of it goes viral and you get an outpouring of sympathy and support on social media. All it will do is encourage Antifa to get more violent in the future.
That Antifa will not think, “Maybe I’m the evil one for striking that pure and righteous lamb.” He will think, “Hell yeah! I just rekt that Nazi scum!”
Surrendering to evil is not virtuous. In fact, it is the very opposite of virtuous.
It is weakness rationalized as virtue.
Are the French the heroes of WWII because they submitted to evil? No, the Americans and the Russians are the heroes of WWII because they fought the evil.
Evil unpunished is rewarded.
So stop rewarding evil, and stop pretending the media will come to our rescue.
