Due to Trump’s visit to England, he has received more media coverage than usual, and this has also meant that certain people have spent more time talking about him than they usually would. It is as though some people can’t stop thinking about Trump; their whole life appears to revolve around him.
But, regardless of how often someone thinks about him, it is almost certain that they will receive approval if they criticise him online. In a lot of cases, it’s as if he is the worst person ever, and, if someone doesn’t agree with this outlook, they will probably end up being labelled.
Black And White
They might end up being called a misogynist or a racist, or another word that has phobia at the end. This causes so many people who support Trump to keep their views to themselves, thereby creating the impression that everyone is against him.
What this shows is that some people are only too happy people to label others, instead of taking the time to understand why they believe what they do. When someone doesn’t behave in a civilised manner, it naturally makes it more or less impossible to have a peaceful discussion with them.
While the mainstream media doesn’t have as much control as it used to, there are still a lot of people who look to this source to be informed about what is going on. In England, most of the media outlets have been against Trump.
In America, on the other hand, there are a number of news sources that are fully behind him, no matter what he does. Now, clearly someone doesn’t need to be extremely perceptive to see that the guy has issues.
An Easy Target
As a result of this, it hasn’t been hard for the media to find things to focus on, and, if they can’t find anything worth talking about, they will be happy to make something up. The trouble is that if someone accepts everything the mainstream media tells them, they can end up being manipulated.
For example, recently the media shared pictures of children in cakes, making out that this was something Trump had done. In reality, these were pictures that had been taken when Obama was in power.
It’s too late
However, by the time that the truth comes out – that’s if it does come out – it is often too late to have an impact. The damage has been done and once again, the media has taken advantage of the people who trust them.
One then has to wonder if these mainstream media sources are only interested in making sure that people hate Trump as opposed to informing them about what is actually going on. It would be easy to conclude that he is not as bad as they make out; if he was, they would have enough evidence without needing to make things up.
By making out that Trump is causing all these problems, it can be easy to believe that everything was fine before he got into power. What this then does is make Obama look like some kind of saint in comparison.
Therefore, if Obama was still in power everything would be fine. This also validates the people who believe that all trump supporters are bigots; as if everything was fine before, there is no way that these people could have actually had any real concerns.
One Big Distraction
But while it would be easy to go along with this outlook, this would overlook the fact that trump is, in many ways, another rotten apple on a tree that has produced many over the years. He is just the latest of a long line of people who are mere puppets for the establishment.
Sure, he is nothing like Obama in terms of how he behaves, but he is part of a plan that has most likely been in place for many, many years. Trump is like the person who jumps into a pool while Obama was like someone who gently slides into a pool, but this is just a facade.
The mainstream media is there to distract people from what is actually going on, and this is why Trump is the perfect president in this regard. When someone is completely focussed on the Trump show, it is going to stop them from seeing the bigger picture.
The people at the top use all the tricks in the book to deceive people; from trying to convince people that a black president would be different, to making out that trump was not part of the establishment. It has been said that these people have plans in place that go back hundreds of years.
Divide and Rule
What the mainstream media should really be talking about is who is pulling the strings from behind the scenes. This is not going to happen, though, as most of these media sources are all part of the same club, and this includes both the mainstream and the so-called alternative media.
These people are the minority and yet they control the majority, simply because there are so many people who are busy fighting amongst themselves. These sources of information are often happy to focus on what makes us different - be it skin colour, gender, or sexual orientation, amongst other things - but very rarely do they talk about what makes us alike.
The mainstream media needs people to buy into what they are saying in order to have power and influence. Without people’s attention, there is not a lot that they can do, and this is the last thing they want.
It could be said that there are two ways to change the world; the first is to try to control others, the second is to lead by example. The former is appealing, but it is morally wrong, and this is why the right thing to do is to be an example to others.
