Young liberals are being programmed by media, entertainment, and political propaganda to believe that Donald Trump is an insane totalitarian they must resist. Media portrays all things President Trump does as evil and all that Obama did as good ad nauseam without regard to real effects. They know that propaganda, like the Force, has a strong influence on the weak-minded.
Rush Limbaugh talking about Glenn Greenwald’s observation that Democrat’s investment in lies that Russia changed the outcome of the election will backfire:
The media, the Democrat Party, and all of their satellites are engaging in a daily effort to undermine the outcome of last year’s election. The Russians had nothing to do with it. [Greenwald] says, “The principal problem for Democrats is that so many media figures and online charlatans are personally benefiting from feeding the base increasingly unhinged, fact-free conspiracies … that there are now millions of partisan soldiers absolutely convinced of a Trump/Russia conspiracy for which … there is no evidence.
“And they are all waiting for the day, which they regard as inevitable and imminent, when this theory will be proven and Trump will be removed.” Again: “so many media figures and online charlatans are personally benefiting from feeding the base increasingly unhinged, fact-free conspiracies.” That would mean increased subscribers at the New York Times. That would mean increased subscriber circulation at the Washington Post. That would mean higher ratings for CNN, MSNBC. They are benefiting from perpetuating this lie.
They are personally benefiting. Higher ratings, higher ad rates, more ad pages, you name it. But there’s something besides that. They are furthering an illusion. They are furthering a lie to undermine an election. That is the endgame here. But Greenwald says they’re taking it too far here. “Key Democratic officials are clearly worried about the expectations that have been purposely stoked and are now trying to tamp them down. … Many [key Democrat officials] have tried to signal that the beliefs the base has been led to adopt have no basis in reason or evidence.
“The latest official to throw cold water on the MSNBC-led circus is President Obama’s former acting CIA chief Michael Morell. What makes him particularly notable in this context is that Morell was one of Clinton’s most vocal CIA surrogates. In August, he not only endorsed Clinton in the pages of the New York Times but also became the first high official to explicitly accuse Trump of disloyalty, claiming, ‘In the intelligence business, we would say that Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation.’
“But on Wednesday night, Morell appeared at an intelligence community forum to ‘cast doubt’ on ‘allegations that members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.’ ‘On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire at all,’ he said, adding, ‘There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.’
What does this all mean? It means that idiot De…
