The media are failing us, making it more important than ever for Americans to work together to defeat fascism
Yes , Yes and Yes. Marjorie T Greene is albatross around Democracies neck and its because the media loves lies and their effect on the population at large. Its like a mental obsession with chaos and fear. Which creates a continuous fount of chaos and fear .
They are bored with good people. Reasonable individuals don’t stand a chance . Look at the coverage on Biden . Negative. And why because he was reasonably calm and considerate. After Trumps calamitous behavior, they had lost the constant outrageous, catastrophic and yes , entertaining aspect of crazy . Such a terrible loss. Not even.
Just like they thrilled to Trump’s every unhinged word (and those of his ever changing cast of characters-from Kellyanne & Spicer to Giuliani & Powell. Thereby boosting the hysterically stupid instead of the boring policy, contrasting the two to the point of ridiculousness. We have 2 fairly ignorant generations who need a crash course in reality, their big dream to “be famous”, then were ‘Left Behind’ in school and raised on FB, Instagram and now TikTok. Now adults being fed a diet of Trump, DeSantis & the Toxic Twins MTG and Boebert. They can’t even recite the Pledge of Allegiance much less understand it. Ok so maybe it’s not the media’s main job to actually try to educate the less well informed. But wait...YES! IT IS!
Superb! MTG s so stupidly unhinged that she is a danger to democracy, and the shame accrues to my home state of Georgia for sending her to DC. Future (if there is a future) historians of the South will have fodder for future studies equal to anything produced from 1870-1950 on southern demagoguery.
