Polling Shows How Many Americans Believe Violence Against Gov’t is Justified

And we have only the mainstream media to blame.

Published

Thanks in large part to the bloodthirsty menace that the mainstream media has become, Americans are growing all the more agitated by the day, with a great deal of this wrath being pointed directly at our federal government.

The infotainment industry has found a very clever way of selling more advertising on their channels, by perpetuating the false dichotomy of a polar political system.  They’ve distilled us all down into Team R and Team D, and they market to each group individually.  On Fox News, Ford will run commercials for its trucks, while over on CNN it’ll be an ad for their electric SUV.

And while this may make advertising and marketing a much simpler prospect, it means that these networks need to lean into the stereotypes that these advertisers are aiming for.  This creates ever-large divides between the two sides, and pits Americans against one another for the sake of corporate interests the nation over.

Left unchecked, this sort of greedy division can even lead to violence, as a new poll shows just how ready some Americans are for such an escalation.

A third of Americans say violence against the government is sometimes “justified,” a shocking new poll revealed on Saturday.

The percentage of people with that view compared to previous years increased significantly, according to the poll published by The Washington Post-University of Maryland survey.

The results, which come almost a year after a violent mob of former President Donald Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol, found that 40 percent of Republicans agreed it could sometimes be “justified for citizens to take violent action against the government.” Twenty-three percent of Democrats and 41 percent of Independents also endorsed situational violence.

And also:

Of those who agree that rising up in arms against the government could be acceptable, 22 percent said it would be justified for invasions of personal liberties, while 15 percent pointed to a military takeover or democratic collapse. Three percent said violence was appropriate if the government did not accept election results.

This is a stark uptick as well:  In 2015, merely 7 years ago, the percentage of Americans ready to take up arms against their government sat around 23%.

Coca-Cola Blasted By Billboards Over Support of ‘Genocide’ Olympics

This is BRUTAL!

Published

on

In just a few weeks’ time, much of the world will have their eyes on Beijing.  No, not on account of the misinformation that they spread about the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, nor their forceful takeover of Tibet.  We won’t be keeping a keen eye on the CCP over the Hong Kong hostage situation, or their repeated advances on the sovereign nation of Taiwan.

Nope.  We’ll all be watching young men and women cruising around on ice skates and skis, as opposed to having a serious conversation about the literal genocide that China has been involved in over the course of the last several years.

Now, international mega-corporation Coca-Cola is taking some serious heat over their continued support of what’s become known as “The Genocide Olympics”.

A conservative media watchdog group launched a billboard campaign Thursday outside Coca-Cola’s Atlanta headquarters, calling on the soft drink giant to explain its sponsorship of the upcoming Beijing Olympics in light of China‘s human rights abuses.

Accuracy in Media accused the company of hypocrisy with a billboard displaying the phrase: “Why does Coke support genocide?”

And it’s not as though Coke remains apolitical…not in the least.

The group notes that Coke condemned its home state of Georgia for implementing a new Republican-authored voting law and supported Major League Baseball’s decision to strip Atlanta of the All-Star Game because of the law — yet the multinational remains a major sponsor of the Beijing Games, “despite the fact that China is the greatest source of evil in our world.”

The billboards were soon making the rounds on social media.

As of this writing, there has been no official response from Coca-Cola.

Stephanie Grisham Makes Wild Claims About ‘Secret Meetings’ Ahead of Jan. 6th

The clear-headed among us will recognize this nothing-burger for what it is, however.

Published

on

Not everything is a spy novel, or a Hollywood blockbuster.  Not every little political machination in our nation is some sort of clandestine and seismic event.  This is something that we all must remember during the hyperbole-laden headline-mongering that the January 6th committee is looking to drum up.

The group’s very existence appears to be hinged on the idea that Donald Trump is a wannabe dictator of some sort who tried to take over America 12 months and 2 weeks ago.  They appear ready to figuratively die on this hill, and they have no qualms with taking the absence of knowledge and fashioning it into something sinister – much like the conspiracy theorists that they love to deride so much.

For instance, there are now headlines swirling around the mainstream media that tell of “secret meetings” that Trump was having just ahead of the attack on the Capitol – the subject and substance of which is undeniably unknown.

Yet still, these are presented as insidious incidents that somehow prove something that they’ve been looking to prove for a long time…despite our complete lack of knowledge regarding the actual facts of the matter.

Former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham told the House committee investigating the Capitol riot that former President Donald Trump had secret meetings in his residence in the days running up to January 6, The Guardian reported.

Two sources told The Guardian that she told the committee that Trump held the meetings, and that only a few of his aides were aware of them.

She said she was not sure exactly who attended but identified Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and the White House chief usher Timothy Harleth, as two people who scheduled and directed participants to the meetings, The Guardian reported.

The infotainment industry’s sources claim that Grisham’s testimony was “more significant” than expected, but there is nothing unusual about the sitting US President having meetings in which not every single solitary person in the White House is included.

Nonetheless, Grisham’s nothing-burger continues to gain traction in the media.
