There is not a second, a minute and an hour that goes by without some liberal media outlet attempting to smear the President through the dissemination of lies and the distortion of facts, aka fake news, aka a crock of slander.
The liberal mainstream media is involved in a conspiracy to take down President Trump by every means at their disposal.
The liberal mainstream media is the agitprop arm of the Democratic Party.
The liberal mainstream media are dutiful minions and scribes of the global elite and the Washington establishment.
The latest crisis concocted by the alt-left media pertains to the off the cuff comments Mr. Trump made at a Saturday night rally in Melbourne, Florida.
“You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden,” Trump said. “Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.”
The liberal media seized on the opportunity to attack the President, claiming that nothing was happening in Sweden. Liberals in the US and Sweden went on a social media rampage, posting pictures of cabins in the snow, of Swedish meatballs and Ikea stores; declaring how peaceful Sweden is and what could the President possibly be talking about. In fact, the Swedish prime minister, Stefan Loefven and the former Swedish foreign minister, Carl Bildt used the moment to attack the President.
Yes, there were no terrorist attacks in Sweden on Saturday, but Mr. Trump was referring in general to the massive wave of crime and terror to hit Sweden in the last few years as the small country has generously opened its doors to every rapist, terrorist and thug from the Middle East and Africa.
As they always do, liberals are living in a fantasy world of denial concerning the reality in Sweden. Rapes are up 70% in the last year and Malmo, Sweden, is the most dangerous city in Europe.
Not to outdo the lies about Sweden, the alt-left media continues to push the greatest story ever told; the fairy tale that Russia hacked the election and is in cahoots with Mr. Trump and his administration.
It is a complete fabrication and outright lunacy. It is a tale full of sound and fury and signifying nothing. It is a story conceived in the basement of the CIA by some creative, ambitious GS-7 who wants to be the DCI one day.
The idea that the Russians somehow hacked the election results is ludicrous and has been debunked by James Clapper and President Obama himself.
Nevertheless, on CNN and on ABC, in the Washington Post, in the NY Times; every day the drumbeat continues. Trump is a Russian agent! Putin hacked the election! This is bigger than Watergate! Trump should be impeached!
The lies perpetuated by the liberal media are off the charts since November 8th. Here are some examples:
After Trump’s electoral victory on November 8, rumors began circulating that multiple transgender teenagers had killed themselves in response to the election results. There was no basis to these rumors. Nobody was able to confirm them at the time, and nobody has been able to confirm in the three months since Trump was elected.
On November 22, Gabriel Sherman posted a bombshell report at New YorkMagazine claiming that “a group of prominent computer scientists and election lawyers” were demanding a recount in three separate states because of “persuasive evidence that [the election] results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked.”
At Politico on December 1, Lorraine Woellert published a shocking essay claiming that Trump’s pick for secretary of the Treasury, Steve Mnuchin, had overseen a company that “foreclosed on a 90-year-old woman after a 27-cent payment error.”
On the day of Trump’s inauguration, CNN claimed Nancy Sinatra was “not happy” with the fact that the president and first lady’s inaugural dance would be to the tune of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way.” The problem? Nancy Sinatra had never said any such thing. CNN later updated the article without explaining the mistake they had made.
The Washington Post wrote that President-elect Donald J. Trump “fired” the commanding General of the D.C. National Guard who is heading up the military presence during the coming inaugural event — in the middle of the oath of office ceremony. Yet a second story on Saturday did not contain the claim.
On January 20, Time reporter Zeke Miller wrote that a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. had been removed from the White House. This caused a flurry of controversy on social media until Miller issued a correction. As Time put it, Miller had apparently not even asked anyone in the White House if the bust had been removed. He simply assumed it had been because “he had looked for it and had not seen it.”
During her confirmation hearing, education secretary nominee Betsy DeVos was asked whether schools should be able to have guns on their campuses. As NBC News reported, DeVos felt it was “best left to locales and states to decide.” She pointed out that one school in Wyoming had a fence around it to protect the students from wildlife. “I would imagine,” she said, “that there’s probably a gun in the school to protect from potential grizzlies.”
How did the media run with it? By lying through their teeth. “Betsy DeVos Says Guns Should Be Allowed in Schools. They Might Be Needed to Shoot Grizzlies” (Slate). “Betsy DeVos: Schools May Need Guns to Fight Off Bears” (The Daily Beast). “Citing grizzlies, education nominee says states should determine school gun policies” (CNN).
On January 26, the Washington Post’s Josh Rogin published what seemed to be a bombshell report declaring that “the State Department’s entire senior management team just resigned.” This resignation, according to Rogin, was “part of an ongoing mass exodus of senior Foreign Service officers who don’t want to stick around for the Trump era.” These resignations happened “suddenly” and “unexpectedly.” He styled it as a shocking shake-up of administrative protocol in the State Department, a kind of ad-hoc protest of the Trump administration.
On February 1, Yahoo News published an Associated Press report about a phone call President Trump shared with Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto. The report strongly implied that President Trump was considering “send[ing] U.S. troops” to curb Mexico’s “bad hombre” problem, although it acknowledged that the Mexican government disagreed with that interpretation. The White House later re-affirmed that Trump did not have any plan to “invade Mexico.”
These stories are in addition to the daily disinformation the Washington Post, the NY Times, CBS, ABC and CNN throw at the President.
Gone are the days where the liberal media maintained some element of decorum and professionalism and at least tried to be impartial and present the facts, when everyone knew they voted for Democrats.
Facts, something missing entirely from the repertoire of unhinged liberals like Martha Raddatz, Jake Tapper, Van Jones, Don Lemon and Rachel Maddow.
It’s more than obvious that the liberal mainstream media has declared war on the President and his supporters, ‘we the people.’ It is time for us to declare war on them.
How can the average person take the fight to the alt-left media? Go on social media and call out these corrupt, lazy, Jihad loving, lying, no good, worthless, left wing hacks for what they are, a disgrace to journalism and this country. Present them with the facts, which are Kryptonite to the alt-left media.
It’s time for the right to go on the offensive. It’s time for millions of President Trump’s supporters to call out every liberal journalist in the country for what they are, purveyors of propaganda.
Steve Bannon is right on target. They are the opposition.
The left has crossed the Rubicon and declared war on the President and his supporters. They won’t stop until they hit a brick wall.
That brick wall is you, the deplorables.
