Hysterical Headlines (funny or absurd) for June 5th:
Bottom Line: I've ID'd some in the media as generally being Godless, soulless and slanderous (ok, so the Godless/soulless thing is a theory...The slanderous part - that's pretty real). I've decided to grab some of the most outrageous headlines to illustrate the point of just how outrageous it's become. Here are today's examples:
- Trump's Stupid and Reckless Climate Decision Bill McKibben, New York Times
- Donald Trump's Incompetence Won't Save Our Democracy Masha Gessen, NY Times
- Trump Stomps Planet Earth Maureen Dowd, New York Times
- Can the West Survive Trump? Andrew Sullivan, New York Magazine
- America, Get Ready for the Comey Show Frank Rich, New York Magazine
- Rise in Brutal Hate Crimes is Intrinsically Connected to Trump Jamelle Bouie, Slate
Gone are the days when anything approaching decorum or "respect for the office" was a thing within many in the Godless, soulless, slanderous media. In a span of two days headlines included the words "stupid" & "incompetence" from New York Times writers. There's not even an effort being made to attempt to make an intellectual case for their opposition to the President. The approach has taken on the path of... "the President's stupid and incompetent and if you disagree you are too"...so much for being open minded. But that's always been the irony of those in the media on the intolerant left. This is also hardly something new either. Remember what partisan's in the media did to Bush? Heck, they even did it to Reagan. Remember all of the "Star Wars" jokes about Reagan's SDI project. Incidentally the same program that just last week shot an ICBM missile out of the sky proving that if North Korea does figure out how to fire missiles at us successfully - when have the ability to take them out long before they get here. But Reagan was just a "stupid" and "incompetent" fool too.
The only difference is that only difference with today's bigotry out of the media is that it's more pervasive in the era of 24/7 media outlets everywhere, President Trump's an easy target for those in the media looking for material and we just experienced eight years of these same bigoted media outlets kissing the butt of the President. What's more is the choice of language. As a reminder there's a significant difference between using the term "stupid" and "ignorant"
Stupidity is an aptitude issue, while ignorance can be resolved with more information...The choice of words being used are especially outrageous and purposeful.
