Elder Patriot – Back in the 1960’s and ‘70’s leftists suggested we surrender to the growing communist menace rather than remaining ever vigilant and militarily engaged in the protection of our freedoms.
And, leftist politicians like President Lyndon Johnson, with the help of leftist journalists like Walter Cronkite did their best to prove to the American people that the situation was helpless with the way they prosecuted and reported the Viet Nam war.
The Antifa communists of that time chanted “better Red than dead at their rallies.”
By 1980 Americans had enough of the communist-corporate globalist takeover, and despite the mainstream media’s total rejection of him (sound familiar?) they elected Ronald Reagan. That brought decades of relative peace and prosperity to America. Until…
Smooth talking Bill Clinton was elected president and began selling nuclear and missile secrets to the communist Chinese while, the MSM once again ignored the growing threat to our freedoms and safety.
The strategy of the communist-corporate cabal is obvious by now, eliminate the middle class so that more wealth is concentrated among the few at the top, and they are still relentlessly advancing it through their wholly owned MSM mouthpieces.
Why else would the MSM remain silent as we built communist China into a nuclear and power and the leading manufacturing country on the planet? How does that make Americans safer?
Do not doubt that there is a Deep State that manipulates the “news” for the benefit of the globalists, not yours. In 1975, Senator Frank Church (D-Idaho), chaired what became known as the Church Committee to investigate the Deep State’s nefarious activities. Among those clandestine operations that his committee exposed was the CIA’s role in manipulating the news that Americans read and heard:
This brings us to today’s Judas Iscariots that seem to be there every time we turn on CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the MSM.
Three years ago – before President Trump ever came upon the scene – CNN’s Jake Tapper tried suggesting the hopelessness of fighting the terrorist threat.
Here is Tapper’s thinly veiled introductory statement when he interviewed former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell who was the lone survivor of an ambush that saw eight soldiers and eleven other SEALS killed:
“One of the emotions I felt while watching the film is first of all the hopelessness of the situation — how horrific it was and also just all that loss of life of these brave American men.”
Luttrell was having none of that line of thought and snapped back at Tapper that hopelessness never entered into it.
Tapper continued his best Tokyo Rose impersonation: “Just the sense of all these wonderful people who died. It seemed senseless. I don’t mean to disrespect in any way, but it seemed senseless — all of these wonderful people who were killed for an op that went wrong.”
No matter how hard Tapper later tried to nuance his statements the message was clear to his viewers – “better Red (or, Ahmed) than dead.” Nuance is beyond Tapper’s intellect. Just look at his inability (really, unwillingness) to correctly report President Trump’s nuanced remarks following Charlottesville.
There is nothing patriotic about Tapper or his MSM cohorts. They are bought and paid for by the foreign and corporate interests who they work for. The interests of hardworking Americans has nothing to do with their reporting.
