The mainstream media has completely lost it, we can all agree on that. They are a joke, they lie, and they push an agenda that is so toxic and divisive that it’s really hard to stomach. Everyone knows that the mainstream media is horrible, but at the same time Trump makes their job of creating zero substance clickbait stories 1,000,000 times easier than it could be! For the past 2 years we’ve watched as Trump and the media mindlessly go back and fourth at one another like two 1st graders arguing over who should be “it” in a game of tag. It’s intolerable, and the American people are so sick of watching this circus. From the moment Trump stepped on the stage to announce his presidency, the media started salivating at their chance to cover something new. We all saw it and we all thought it wouldn’t last, but unfortunately it did. The constant coverage of everything Trump expanded from his campaign into his presidency and has not stopped since. It’s annoying, it’s pointless, and 75% of it is a load of crap. This is where Trump needs to begin being smart, but he won’t do it. Why? Cause he’s Trump and he can’t control himself. A little bit of advice Mr. President: Complaining about how unfairly you’re being treated by the media is not going to get you anywhere! Saying stupid things and acting impulsively because you got angry will not help you. Finally, tweeting irrelevant crap at three in the morning, spelling half the words wrong, and ending each tweet with “SAD!” will not help you!
He does nothing but give the media fodder for stories about him! Does the media rake him over the coals? Yes. Unfortunately, this is the way it is. Trump is a Republican, it comes with the territory. The media also treated George W. Bush terribly, but he dealt with it in a way that wouldn’t help the media aside from his notorious grammar mistakes. Trump acting like a victim will not help him. If he would just ignore the BS stories, not give the media the attention they crave, and stop screwing over his press secretary by making him look like a buffoon, then maybe he can overcome the media trying to swamp him. Right now the mainstream media is outsmarting Trump, so unless he can get himself under control they’ll continue to produce endless fake news stories in a vicious cycle with Trump brainlessly providing the starting content.
It’s amazing what happens when people are left alone to make their own decisions and come to their own conclusions about certain things. The natural way that people come to develop their opinions on things is the way that real tolerance is reached. The leftist SJWs just don’t seem to understand this concept. They believe that shouting at people over and over again while calling them racists or homophobes or whatever the insult may be, will drive them to accept their point of view on any certain issue. This hurts their cause more than it helps it. For example: Say you’re a person who isn’t completely on-board with the whole idea of gay marriage, but you personally don’t have any problems with gay people and accept that this is now the law of the land. How do you think you’d feel if anytime you expressed your opinion about how you feel about the issue someone shouted “Homophobe!” at you over and over? You probably would start to resent that issue even more. That kind of behavior would probably drive you to be more against it than you already were. The reason? It’s because you’d get into this frame of mind: Why are you going to try to be tolerant of an issue you aren’t completely on-board with if everyone is just going to scream at you and call you a homophobe anyway? In this situation, if everyone just left you alone and let you believe what you wanted to, you may come around one day! Who knows? If not, than that’s alright too because this is America and everyone in entitled to their opinion.
Real tolerance can not be achieved by forcing beliefs upon someone. Even if people will say they’re tolerant just to not get screamed at, that doesn’t mean it’s what they actually believe. This is how the fake tolerance of the leftists is created. It’s born out of fear of being called a racist bigot sexist homophobe and doesn’t do anything for anyone. If you just leave people alone to make their own decisions and believe what they want to, some of them will come around one day. In contrast, if you yell at and berate people for having different beliefs, you’ll just cause them to hold even more resentment than they already had. If you SJWs really want to help your causes, then leave people alone, don’t cause resentment, and let people achieve real tolerance on their own.
Last week the cancelation of the popular ABC comedy “Last Man Standing” was announced despite having very solid ratings. The show stars Tim Allen (a Republican) as Mike Baxter. Baxter is a middle aged, middle class, conservative white man living in the Denver suburbs. He lives in a house with 4 women and frequently makes jokes related to this. He also frequently jokes about his son-in-law and oldest daughter who are model SJWs. Politics is a sub plot of the show, making satire of how a family with so many different views operates, and at the end of each episode the members of the family are always able to put their views aside to come together.
So a well received show that’s been on the air since 2011 suddenly gets canceled despite it’s success? Fans of the show weren’t buying it and neither was Allen. He believes the show was canceled due to his personal beliefs which he recently discussed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” There are talks of the show picking up a new home on another network but this is beside the point. The point is that the media has gotten completely out of control. Their attempts to control the narrative is pushing its way into everything they can control, now including the shows they air on their networks. Anything that doesn’t fit the SJW leftist narrative is now seemingly off limits. There is a petition on change.org to reinstate the show which currently has over 100,000 signatures. Think about giving your signature to fight back against this authoritarian narrative of the media.
