WOW, do people have short memories. Now that the Democrats have ‘won’ the 2020 election, ‘it is time for unity’. Funny that, because I remember after the 2016 election when the Republicans won, it was a time for Resistance.
So when the Democrats take a break from making their hit-list against the Trump administration, they tell the American people that it is ‘time to heal and come together for the sake of the nation’. Further, all the good-for-nothing, faux conservatives are urging Trump to quit. And why, may I ask, would he do that? Oh, yes, because you want some peace and quiet and to be liked by the Left who despise you. Give me a break.
Immediately after Trump was elected in 2016 (by real voters, not dead ones) there was The Resistance. From memory, we had the highly organised women’s march and ‘not my president’ campaigns. Many actually called for the electors of the Electoral College not to vote in line with the electorate of their states and vote against Trump. In this piece in the Atlantic the writer stated that ‘for the first time in modern American history, there’s a plausible case for urging the electors to vote with their consciences’.
There was a grassroots petition to ‘persuade members of the Electoral College to do something that has never been done in American history — deny the presidency to the clear Election Day winner’.
I’m not feeling much acceptance so far.
Lots of celebrities swore to leave the country (sadly, that never happened). Once the marching and the protests and all the celebrity nonsense was over, the Democrats got serious and ran the Russian collusion narrative. Then they got very serious and impeached President Trump. All of this and more was done to delegitimise the 2016 election. And after four year of endless media hysteria and the incredibly well-funded Resistance, Trump is supposed to quit and go quietly? I don’t think so.
Then there is the media bias. You know, most of the media bias that we complain about happens before the story ever hits the airwaves or the papers. The real bias is in the stories they decide not to cover, compared with those that deserve the full wall-to-wall CNN hysteria treatment.
So for two weeks the media waved around Justice Kavanaugh’s 20- year-old high-school yearbook as if it was a murder weapon. It was really important that we examined very closely what was in that yearbook. But to question whether dead people were voting in the most important election in the world makes you a ‘conspiracy theorist’.
For an entire weekend CNN, MCNBC, and the rest of them pushed a dodgy video about a Catholic kid who was wearing a MAGA hat at a pro-life march, with the result that the school had to close owing to death threats. Eventually, CNN had to settle a lawsuit brought by said kid. But to question mail-in ballots in an election is ‘Right-wing misinformation.’ Nothing to see here, move along.
For months, the Left-wing media in the US failed to cover the trial of an abortion doctor who killed babies, and I’m not talking unborn babies, I’m talking about full-term babies born and butchered by the monster Kermit Gosnell. Their mothers were abused and often left for dead. Not until Mollie Hemingway at the Federalist shamed the media into covering that story did they do so.
A scientist says the wrong thing at a conference halfway across the world – he is cancelled 20 seconds later. A respected historian says something foolish on a niche podcast. He is as good as dead. On and on and on it goes – cancel everyone who disagrees with you, but we can never, ever cancel any illegal votes. They told you there were white supremacists everywhere, but not a single dodgy vote anywhere.
I don’t know what happened in this election, but I do know media bias when I see it. And media bias is when they won’t even look into voter fraud and simply answer: nothing to see here, let’s all move on, oh did I mention Kamala Harris looks fabulous in a white suit, and check out Biden’s two dogs. So cute! Whatever you do, do not look at the pile of votes just dumped behind me which all, miraculously, were for Biden.
Media bias: the stories they bury are the real news.
