It seems our commander in chief thinks the media isn’t reporting terror attacks. So let’s pretend for a minute that terrorist attacks are happening and that the media is not reporting it, like Trump is claiming.
If attacks were happening, there’s this thing called Twitter – not sure if Trump knows about it; wherein 140 characters or less, you can reach the entire globe in mere seconds. Pretty cool huh?
If something were to happen – say something along the lines of a home grown “Real Murican” terrorist attack, perpetrated by a drunk, shirtless, white guy with a red “Make America Great Again” baseball hat on, who runs his pickup truck through a crowd of people attending an art festival, shooting at them with his legally purchased firearm – it would be on social media before the cops could even get there! Thus, the news of it even happening, would get out regardless of what the media does. Sorry to blow a hole in your claim Herr Trump.
It’s insane to think the media would ignore the incident whether it was committed by a “Real Murican” terrorist or a member of ISIS. Is Trump actually claiming that the media isn’t doing its job for some alternate reason? Does Trump not realize reporting on events, is the job of the media?
So here’s the thing and this may be a shock to the unthinking person (*cough-dumbass-cough*), but the reality is the media in all of its forms, is for the most part, usually part of a publicly traded for-profit company. However, that doesn’t make it inherently evil. Real news does get reported.
The media and everyone who works in the field, are all allowed to make a profit. Just like any other profession, they get paid for their work. If they don’t report on something, umm, they don’t get paid. But Trump is so smart, he knows things, things we don’t. So there must be a good reason the media isn’t reporting on these terror attacks right?
Do media outlets only care about making money at the end of the day, of course! Is there a moral dilemma between reporting facts to keep the public informed, versus reporting things in a style that sensationalizes just to get more revenue? Of course there is. Either way, whether the media outlet is just in it for the money, or only cares about reporting raw facts with no spin, not reporting on something is ludicrous. The media is NOT going to ignore terrorist attacks, as President Donald the Dingbat is suggesting.
Terrorism exists. It’s a bad thing. It’s scary all on its own without any sensationalism. We all have to fight it. The question becomes, why is Trump saying this? That’s the part of this that you have to think about, don’t just blindly ingest his words.
What Trump is doing, is using that legitimate fear of terrorism, for his own agenda. He wants power and money for himself and his Fascist entourage. He is trying to scare you so deeply that terror attacks are happening and convince you that the media won’t tell you – to manipulate you. Where exactly are these so called attacks happening? Where are the facts to back this up? They don’t exist. All he cares about is making people so afraid, that they turn to him for his bold interventions.
Using fear as a form control is something that has been part of our culture as human beings since the dawn of time. There are varying levels, but at the core, it’s a way to get someone to behave the way you want them to. You know the drill. “The Gods are watching and you will go to some form of hell if you don’t do what they say.” “Santa and the Elf on a shelf and the Mench on a Bench are watching, so you better behave.” “If you don’t pull good grades, you are losing your cell phone use for a month”.
We manipulate each other all the time. The important part is WHY we do this. Are we simply trying to get a child to behave, or are we trying to trick someone for purely dark reasons.
Trump is just doing what you do when you want to manipulate someone. That’s fair. What’s not fair, is that he wants you to be so scared and feel so helpless, that you turn to him for protection when in fact he is the one you should be afraid of.
Don’t fall for it. Resist!
