I am now a meme. Now, the only reason I am not in prison is because I can not use the internet.
reddit.com/r/All Politics Politics and the media – Reddit /u/michaelmckean The American political establishment has become so desperate to make Donald Trump the new Hitler that they have taken to mocking him as “functiiles mass media”.
The latest victim of their satire is Donald Trump.
The US President has been mocked by some commentators for being a “fraud” and a “fascist” and “racist”.
Now, he is being mocked by another group of people, which they see as a “media empire” that is “playing its part” in the political battle to shape the next four years of US politics.
“The media empire has been playing its part in shaping the political game to keep Trump in power,” the Washington Post wrote on Wednesday.
“But it’s not a media empire that is playing its role.
It’s the media that is pretending to be Trump.
They are pretending to have a job to do.”
The Washington Post article goes on to argue that the media are “playing a role in shaping what the public hears, and what people think”.
“They have been the media’s propaganda arm, the propaganda arm of the Republican Party, the Democratic Party and the independent media,” the article states.
“They are playing a role now in the 2016 election that they had not played before.”
It’s the Trump-fever they can’t get away from.
The media empire’s job is to create fear and anxiety among the American people, and the American public is no longer willing to take their cues.
“The article also notes that the establishment media have been “playing the role of the propagandist”, but has been largely “silenced” by the media, who have been forced to “shut up”.
The Washington Examiner’s editorial page has also taken aim at the media for “playing their part” to “shape the political future”.”
We have a media that has done its job of playing the role it has played for years to shape public opinion and the direction of American politics,” the editorial said.”
So while we should be proud of that, we have been unable to stop it from doing so.
“It is now up to us to stop this media from doing what it is doing.”
The US media are now playing their part to shape what the American Public hears, thinks and believes about the future of US Politics, the article said.
The establishment media are playing their role to shape Trump in the Oval Office https://t.co/4HdZ0XKpKW — The Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) September 24, 2020The Washington Times also published a scathing piece on Wednesday criticising the media as a propaganda arm.
“There are a number of things the media have done that we should do and we will do that, and this is the last time that we will be asked to do that,” the paper said.
“We will be asking the media to keep the lights on.
We will be demanding that it stay on.”
The Times’ editorial board was responding to the media and political elites’ desire to play their part in a new political era in the United States, which the paper called “frightening”.
“There is a new wave of nationalism that has begun to take hold in the US,” the Times’ editor, William Kristol, wrote.
“Trump and his allies are pushing hard for this nationalism, which is a very dangerous development, but the American media have shown no appetite for doing anything about it.”
Now is not the time for the media or political elites to play the role that they are playing.
“The newspaper also warned that “if we fail to speak out about this dangerous nationalism, we will face consequences, including political and financial ruin, economic and social dislocation and possibly even the loss of our freedoms”.”
It will be up to the rest of us to keep America safe and prosperous,” the newspaper warned.”
What we cannot afford is a Trump presidency, and that is the responsibility of every American.
