One of the most helpful tools I have in assessing the crumbling of our National Culture, and the decline of journalism in America, is the Yahoo homepage that pops up on my monitor every morning. I find that it’s an excellent gauge of how low standards have become, and also a great example of the massive disinformation taking place on a global scale. In other words, whatever Yahoo promotes is a distraction, and whatever they hide and obfuscate is the real news.
My morning chuckle came from seeing the main story……..Surprise! it’s an in depth article on the 8 million dollar mansion that upstanding world citizen and voice for the globe’s poor/downtrodden/living-in-squalor, Angelina Jolie, has acquired for her and her international brood. Nevermind that Jolie is a fraud, and in my opinion a supreme weirdo, that is on camera making out with her brother, wearing Billy Bob’s blood around her neck, and collecting colors and ethnicities of children like shoes. As I understand from the story, she desperately needed a place to hide from mean-old-stoner Brad Pitt. To each their own, as they say.
The real news was buried several frivolous articles in……and that was that the Cascade Mall shooter, in Burlington Washington, was apprehended, and guess what? He’s a Turkish born, likely Islamic, resident alien. Huh…..who woulda thunk it? What’s really odd is that just a few days ago, Ahmad Rahami, another islamist, blew up some stuff in New York, after being on the Fed’s radar and his own father trying to turn him in.
I see a common denominator here, just like in most mass shootings that occur lately…….do you? Well Yahoo News sure doesn’t, and neither do the writers and producers of television news and entertainment. In fact, according to most fictional TV shows, an example being Law & Order SVU, most murderers, rapists, and crooks are blond haired, blue eyed, middle aged white guys. If terrorism is addressed by Hollywood it’s more likely to be a hidden army of Scandinavian Vikings, or a horde of neo-Nazi skinheads that roam the streets looking for poor, hardworking Muslim cabbies to terrorize out of nativist fear.
Could it be a coincidence that the mainstream media is watering down, and downright ignoring, news that weakens Hillary Clinton’s case for the presidency and strengthens Trump’s? Uh….no.
My only hope is that enough people are sick and tired of the ridiculous hypocrisy and lies that dominate our computer, television, and movie screens. We’ll see. I would like to believe that there are folks who see the Clinton ad where Hillary says, “Is this the president we want for our daughters?” and laugh. Why? Because all I can picture in my mind during that ad is Bill Clinton groping underage girls on the “Lolita Express”, sexually assaulting several women, sticking a cigar where it doesn’t belong while in the Oval Office, and Hillary Clinton attempting to cover it up and then publicly destroy all of his victims. Is that the president you want for your daughter, indeed.
The aftereffects from tomorrow night’s debates may be our only indicator of how many are still willing to swallow the left’s, and Clinton’s, lies. I have no doubt that our entertainment and news media will…….and that if Hillary (literally or figuratively) chokes on stage Monday, Tuesday morning’s Yahoo front page will be an expose of Angelina Jolie’s selflessness and one of the Kardashian’s cleavage and it’s contributions to the art world.
