Ex-Proud Boys head Joseph Biggs gets 17 years in prison, second-longest sentence in Jan. 6 Capitol riot case
Sure, according to Establishment politicians and mainstream media, the “insurrectionists” of January 6th fomented rebellion reminiscent of the Civil War. Well, except for only one totally-not-a-Fed man who is innocent. 🙄 Do some googling of Ray Epps and watch the barrage of MSM articles defending one, and only one, participant in Jan 6th protests. How much more evidence do you need of the Establishment politician/Big Tech/mainstream media symbiotic relationship?
We know all the usual mainstream media shills–NY Times, Washington Post, CNN, NPR, MSNBC, ABC, and so on. But the leftist propaganda goes way beyond the so-called “news” media. It’s dominant throughout the sports media with their “social justice” and other garbage. One area that isn’t mentioned enough is the financial press, most notably the highest rated channel–CNBC. I frequently have it on in the background when I’m reading or exercising, mostly for the stock quotes & economic indicators. Good luck in finding a conservative or libertarian guest on this network. If one ever expresses an opinion opposite of the daily talking points, they won’t be invited back again.
Interestingly, two companies seem to dominate their business coverage more than any others. Obviously, these must be the most widely held stocks, highest in market cap, and central to our lives, right? Not so much. The first is Tesla. While high in total market cap, the stock ownership is highly concentrated, and although this may change in the future, the cars are primarily owned by upper/middle class Americans on the coasts. The 2nd company that dominates CNBC coverage is Twitter, which is privately-owned and therefore not relevant to the investing public that tunes in. I’d estimate 95% of the coverage of Tesla and 100 percent of Twitter is negative. So, class, can anyone think of a reason why these two companies are targeted for so much hit-piece coverage? 🤔
Obviouly, it’s because the 2nd most hated person in America by the Left (after Trump) is the owner of both companies, Elon Musk. Interestingly, with Musk’s focus on climate change & building a sustainable future, he was once perhaps the most loved person in America by liberals. All it took was his standing up for free speech and stopping the mass censorship of conservatives/libertarians to complete this reversal. That should tell you all you need to know about the Left.
Getting back to CNBC, when discussing Twitter, I not only hear the same talking points from every commentator, but the exact same words, which almost always include “racist” and “cesspool.” These words were never used before Musk took control, so my question is “Based on what?” How is CNBC and virtally every other MSM shill coming to that conclusion? Are they basing it on a few cherry-picked tweets out of the hundreds of millions posted daily, which could easily have been planted? Is the conclusion based on any kind of scientific study? How would you even undertake one that filters out the millions of fake accounts and bot posts?
This is a 100 percent media-narrative driven campaign. For those who don’t know the formula: it starts by the DNC or some smear merchant like Media Matters feeding a story to a prominent “news” organizaton like the New York Times or Washinton Post. CNN, MSNBC, CBS, CNBC, and the rest of the propaganda infrastructure pick up the “breaking news” and add it to their daily broadcasts. Celebrities, social media liberals, and local media then echo them again. Then, eventually the BS is repeated so often it becomes accepted as mainstream “fact.” Then, if someone asks a question like I just did about what backs up the “cesspool” assessment, leftists can quickly put together 10 mainstream links (always listed first on Google) which back up their talking points. But if you look deeper, none of these are independent, primary-sourced research. They’re all just echoing each other in infinite circles.
It’s tough to tell if MSM commentators really are incapable of independent, critical thinking, or if they know what they’re saying is gaslighting bullshit but are corrupt and/or compromised. In any case, freedom of speech easily exposes this kind of thing, which is why Twitter and all other free-speech outlets must be destroyed.
