Freedom’s “Worst Enemy” Today Is the Mainstream Media
Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)
I have written about this topic on several occasions because it truly represents an existential threat to both our freedoms and rights as a (supposed) free society. This is not hype or exaggeration, but is firmly grounded in a truth we are not supposed to recognize or understand … by design!
From the originally intended protector of liberty (the fourth branch) … to the ever more blatant enemy of liberty, the MainStream Media is one of the the five main tools being used in the attempt to subjugate We the people. The other four being … the Healthcare, the Food Supply, the Education System and Entitlement Programs. As of now the elite, who own and run this corporation we call America, pretty much have a chokehold on all five.
But let’s discuss the media because if you control (own) the media, you control how the population thinks making all the other tools to be used against the masses that much easier to impose and accept. Using this tool can effectively shape and mold public opinion to suit your needs or justify your actions, and in doing so render all of your heinous weapons much more effective and successful.
A couple of examples of how the MSM has influenced society’s mindset:
In the late 1960’s and continuing up through the Bush presidency, we had many peace rallies and anti-war demonstrations railing against warmongering. Yet now with many more hostile actions taking place across the globe overtly or covertly, we hardly hear even a whimper. Did all the peace-nics suddenly become war hawks?
I don’t think so!
It used to be if a president or his cabinet made a huge OOPs it was national news, but for eight years of Obama, it was hidden, covered up or justified in some perverse fashion as being good for us, or somehow beneficial in the scheme of things. So did the vast majority of Americans suddenly become ignorant or chronically apathetic?
One might think so.
Lets look at another example:
If you wished to remove the ability or the right of citizens to posses firearms, but knew this to be an unpopular endeavor with a large segment of the population, what better mechanism than the MSM to convince the majority of the propaganda absorbing populace that those wishing to retain their firearms are evil people only wishing to perpetrate harm on them, and thus bring undue public pressure to see all guns banned.
The ability of the MSM to play segments of We The People against each other for their gains and our losses, or to move what may otherwise be an unpopular elitist agenda forward, is powerful beyond compare and demonstrated daily.
This entire process is called the dumbing down of America and thanks to the MSM it has worked pretty damn well! So mission pretty much (but not totally) accomplished by one of the most effective and monstrous mechanisms ever developed by mankind, to control man’s mind, Mainstream (elitist owned) Media! Every tyrannical government in modern times has used this diabolical weapon to perpetrate evil in the pursuit of the total subjugation of its people, and done so in a hugely successful manner!
We The People have no special immunity to what may just be freedom’s worst enemy.
Why you should never trust the Mainstream Media …
But despite the massive effort to seriously dumb Americans (and indeed the global population) down, We are waking up to the reality of these constant lies meant only to serve the elitist agenda. We have a long road to travel back to a MSM that can once again be relied on for the truth.
A media that can once again be referred to truthfully as “The Fourth Branch”.
Here is a short presentation of the nuts and bolts of today’s mainstream media (MSM) showing their meteoric plunge from information (truth) presenters to propaganda (lies) reporting … and why the MSM has fallen from the most trusted to one of the most distrusted entities in American society today …
Why No One Trusts the Mainstream Media …
