The great (Dis)Information War continues to rage all around us

Published

on

Every now and again, social media facilitates some incredible exchanges of ideas and concepts, if you can just get past all of the Candy Crush requests and liberal lunatics attempting to organize pedantic protests.

Twitter has been the hotbed of free speech and free thought in recent years, with human beings interacting with one another in real time, over any distance that we can currently travel in the universe.  This incredibly powerful reality has been reduced to cat videos and Farm Ville in some arenas, but there are still users out there making the most of their digital soapbox.

One such social media magnate is @GalacticRedPill on Twitter, who just today dropped a lengthy diatribe on our current state of affairs.  The five nuggets of knowledge that follow are perhaps the most poignant of his pontifications.

Trending: AOC May Have Committed ‘Major Ethics Violation’ After Startling Discovery Uncovered

#5.  Kicking Things Off With A Bold Analogy

GRP’s insinuation here could easily be construed as a dig at the Deep State, who have reshaped public service into their own selfish image.

Trump, as a Citizen President, is certainly shoving Americans into a new, uncharted era in U.S. politics.  Our blindfold is both a figurative shield against the truth of the Deep State swamp dwellers and a burden on the previously nonpolitical President.

But, as with all things America, we are at our best while we are trying hardest.

#4:  Exposing How The Media Subconsciously Feeds You Their Own Narrative

The cable news networks and their social media presence are almost certainly to blame for this, with their constant and consistent conflict porn blaring in our general direction at all hours of the day and night.

To make matters worse, just the act of scrolling is addictive in its own way.

Are Facebook and other social media companies intentionally exploiting people’s psychological vulnerabilities to keep them addicted?

You bet, says Sean Parker, who made a fortune as an early Facebook investor and its first president. In an interview with Axios’ Mike Allen this week, Parker said that he has become something of a “conscientious objector” to social media. And he reflected with some regret on his own role in helping to mold the sort of company that Facebook would become.

“The thought process was all about, ‘How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?’,” he said. “And that means that we need to sort of give you a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever, and that’s going to get you to contribute more content, and that’s going to get you more likes and comments. It’s a social validation feedback loop. … You’re exploiting a vulnerabilty in human psychology.

#3.  Putting Trump’s Adversity Into Context

While this is certainly an intriguing and colorful visualization, there is more than a little truth to the analogy as well.

This is where @GalacticRedPill begins to veer into the juicy world of QAnon and the alleged “real” reason for Robert Mueller’s time in Washington D.C.

#2.  Here Comes The Real Point

And while Donald Trump is steadily working to avoid a complete collapse of political order in our nation, he is still winning at nearly everything he attempts.

The lists of accomplishments that this Citizen President has achieved in just over a year is unfathomable, with just some of the highlights being the end of the Iran nuclear deal, the denuclearization of the DPRK, and the end of the sixty-plus year Korean War.

#1.  A Message For The Future

The point here is that Americans are living in a golden age of U.S. influence on the world, and the mainstream media is attempting to drown us in content to belittle this fact.

We must all step outside of the sphere of media malfeasance from time to time, in order to fully appreciate the gift that our nation has been given in Donald Trump.

Former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan: Democrats’ battle against the border wall is driven by identity politics. President Trump declaration of a national emergency to build a border barrier is necessary according to Obama’s Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan.

The more the Democrats fights securing the border, the larger the price they will pay in 2020.

Per the Daily Caller:

Former President Barack Obama’s Border Patrol chief blamed the disagreement surrounding the border wall on identity politics, during a Friday night interview with Brian Kilmeade on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Mark Morgan was on Carlson’s show to discuss President Donald Trump’s decision to declare a state of emergency in order to reallocate funds toward constructing a wall along the southern border. Trump received $1.375 billion from the bill that he signed, and intends to dedicate an around $6.5 billion more from other agencies.

“Mark Morgan is the former head of the border patrol. And he’s heard the rhetoric, but he knows the reality. Mark, is the president making up an emergency?” Kilmeade asked.

“Absolutely not,” Morgan responded. “Brian, this is part of the frustration for those of us from a law enforcement, border security perspective. How many more statistics do we have to provide? How many more factually based examples do we have to provide? How many more angel families have to stand in front of some of these individuals before they finally say, ‘Yeah, okay, this is real.’ It’s just incredulous.”

In an interview with CNN former border patrol chief Mark Morgan said that President Trump had no choice but to declare a national emergency to get funding for the border wall because “Congress failed.”

The Democrats think they know so much more and are much better informed than those who are actually on the ground every day at the Southern border.

This is not the first time Mark Morgan explained that a border barrier was necessary. In a mid-January interview he stated:

“Before I was the chief of border patrol I was with the FBI,” Morgan explained. “And I actually supervised MS-13 gang force in southern California. We used to catch them on surveillance wires, and they would laugh, MS-13 gang members would laugh [at] how easy it was to go back between Mexico and the U.S. border.”

(…) The other day when they had the national press conference, and they [border patrol agents] got up, and they said the wall works, they’re right,” said Morgan. “And it’s not based on a personal political ideology. That’s based on historical data and facts that can be proven.”

This isn’t only about identity politics. It’s also about stupid, stubborn, defiant Democrats who have chosen to disregard their duty to represent the people in favor of petty party politics

MAGA MADNESS: Loony Lib Pulls Gun on Trump Fan Over Hat

I must remind you once again that we are all Americans, regardless of our political affiliation.  It’s time to start acting like it.

MAGA

What started out as a social media joke about the lunacy of the liberal left has now turned into a bonafide phenomenon called Trump Derangement Syndrome, for which we are too intrinsically intwined to have any true perspective as if yet.

Try to remember the shock and horror that you felt when you first saw the bloody, decapitated head of the President at the end of Kathy Griffin’s outstretched arm.  The steely, cold stare that she gave the camera was purely chilling.  Her eyes belied no emotion at the heinous and callous effigy in her hands, that she herself chose to create.  She had the uncaring and unflinching look of a cold-blooded predator.

It was unnerving to witness.  The photo-realistic, bloody head was enough to form a brick somewhere deep in my guts, but seeing Kathy Griffin’s absolute void of emotion struck me in ways that no political imagery had before.

Now, remember that this was all nearly two years ago now.  Today, in 2019, were we to see something like this, it wouldn’t have nearly the effect.  We’d scoff, and scold, but in the end we would chalk it up to “liberals being liberals”.

It is this passage of time, and the erosion of dignity within the democratic party, that has led to madness such as this:

Police in Bowling Green, Kentucky, say James Phillips was arrested after witnesses said he pulled a gun inside a Sam’s Club outlet because the victim was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat.

A police report notes that the suspect admitted to getting upset over the headwear and that he “flipped off” the MAGA hat wearer, according to WBKO-TV 13.

The victim, Terry Pierce, told police he had a right to wear the hat. “I have as much right to wear that hat and support my country and my president as he has not to,” the Sam’s Club customer said.

Pierce added that Phillips, “Pulled a .40 caliber out and stuck it in my face, backed up and said, ‘It’s a good day for you to die.’”

Phillips claimed that he told Pierce to put the gun down so they could settle the argument like men, but Pierce ran out of the store, instead.

I must remind you once again that we are all Americans, regardless of our political affiliation.  It’s time to start acting like it.

Sensibility is the only cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome.
