Our Radicalized Media: A Clear And Present Danger

Most associate the term “radicalized” with ISIS.  But radical movements aren’t limited to a religion.  A jihad is a crusade for a principle or belief involving struggle” and “resistance.”

The Washington establishment, the Deep State, and special interests have launched their own jihad, built on a battle cry to “resist.”  Today, calls to “resist!” echo through Congress as half of the House and Senate stage a mutiny against a duly elected president.

“Resist!” is the call to arms from Democrat leaders (Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama) and radical activist groups (Black Lives Matter, Antifa).

More than 50 organizations have formed to “resist!” the Trump administration.

Just as ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi calls on his followers to resist infidels, so this Washington cabal calls on its warriors to resist our government, to obstruct the president.

These machinations are not conducted in the shadows, not a secret plot carried out in the dead of night.  It’s all in our faces.  Rush Limbaugh warns of a silent coup, Sean Hannity a “soft coup,” Ambassador Bolton the “first coup d’état in [U.S.] history.”

Wow – a domestic plot to take down our government, and the best we can do is chronicle the uprising?  How did we get to the place where we witness a coup and tacitly accept it?

In a word, the media, the left’s super-soldiers, brought us to this point.

This powerful propaganda tool is utilized to take the state message into every living room, bedroom, workplace, and gym, anywhere there’s a TV or internet, omnipresent, Big Brother.

Like Hitler’s “Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda,” the media control information, reporting only news that attacks our president and those working to exonerate him.  They bury news of lawlessness that implicates Democrats – Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, any member of the leftist cabal.

But why are the media protecting the bad actors?  Is it their liberal bent, their far-left ideology?  Well, yes and no.  Yes, the media are radicalized, wholly devoted to the progressive dogma of the left, but it’s more than that.  These faux journalists couldn’t spew their poison, advocate the overthrow of a president, without their boss’s permission, without government approval.

Oh, I know: Time Warner, Comcast, and other private corporations, not government, own the media.  Except corporate America and government are one and the same, partners in a corrupt merger.

The roots of this merger are in the iron triangle, a mutually beneficial three-way relationship among Congress, government bureaucrats (the Deep State), and special interests (corporate).
