As Americans, we are used to a bit of raucous rhetoric in our national debate, but the last few weeks have been something else entirely.
With a slew of hate crimes and politically motivated terror sweeping the nation in the days ahead of our 2018 midterm elections, Americans have reached an entirely unprecedented level of stress in recent days. The blame game is in full effect, of course, with the media blaming the President for his campaigns against political correctness.
On the other end of the argument, however, we have a great many political observers and participants pointing fingers at the media who stand to gain the most from the “New Civil War” that they themselves have been alluding to. You see, they would reap millions in ad revenue should these shocking events continue, and as Americans find themselves glued to the television set.
Now, one of the President’s long-time allies is speaking out on this very subject.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday called on the press to stop looking for ways to blame President Trump for the synagogue shooting over the weekend that left 11 people dead.
“Politicians pointing the finger, media making it about themselves,” she said on Fox News. “Cut it out, and recognize that this man went in there to ‘kill Jews.'”
Conway said Trump has always asked people to unite when tragedy strikes, but she said the press keeps trying to turn every tragedy into a weapon against Trump’s presidency. She said cable news shows do this more than most.
Whether or not we are ever able to resolve this scenario is unclear, given just how similar it seems to the age-old “chicken or the egg” argument.
What we do know, however, is that we will take every bit of respite that we can while the nation attempts to rediscover what it means to be an American.
