In today’s episode, I wanted to be a little more philosophical about how many of us process the news. I am always wondering why so many continue to blindly believe the mainstream media, no matter how many times they are wrong. What is it that convinces so many to say, “Sure, okay, they got that last one wrong, but I’m sure they’ve got this one right!”
The only explanation I have been able to formulate hinges on the primitive parts of our brains where our emotions are. Our earliest survival techniques centered around feelings of fear, anger, love, etc. It made is run away from threats or confront them head-on. Emotions are strong and hard to overcome. Just see what happens when you tell an emotionally distraught person to “calm down” and you know what I’m talking about. Asking a person to apply logic and reason while in the midst of an emotional upheaval is quite difficult.
To illustrate this, I open with how the Left is suddenly using Replacement Theory as something only seen in white people, specifically white conservatives and, by way of extension, white supremacists. It’s to the point where some believe all Republicans are represented by the murderous psychopath who killed fellow Americans in Buffalo, NY. These same people in the media, though, have forgotten how the topic of demographic shifts have been a giddy talking point for them for years. I share a montage of sound bites over how excited they are to see the shift in demographics will lead to a Democrat takeover for generations to come.
Emotionally, they are so angry at one side of the political aisle, they are incapable of seeing how the very theory they want to link to white supremacy, is the very topic they celebrated as a means of decades of future political power. It’s sheer anger and fear that leads to so many news stories turning into disinformation. As an example, I pull several clips from Nicole Wallace of MSNBC, who should be in line for an award at how much disinformation she has spread in her career.
Blue-checked journos have jumped onto Congressman Barry Loudermilk who met with a constituent family with young children in the House Office Building on January 5, 2021. Supposedly, this is utter and undeniable proof of an inside job for the January 6th riot and an example of how they “cased the joint.” Tristan Snell has been pointed out before on the show for his tireless errors and Trump Derangement, which is why he is qualified to be a commentator on CNN and MSNBC. It doesn’t matter that a family from the Congressman’s district never entered the Capitol building. No place where the family went on the 5th was breached on the 6th. The family did not even enter the Capitol grounds on the 6th and no one in that family has been investigated or charged in connection to January 6th. Yet, this is the story du jour for Leftists who are so mentally unhinged, they cannot allow facts to get in the way of a good story.
Today, Pfizer’s CEO Albert Bourla announced at the WEF in Davos, they have developed an ingestible chip to put in a tablet so when a patient swallows the medicine, a wireless signal is sent out to inform authorities it has been consumed. He adds, imagine the compliance to know the medicine a patient should take has been taken. I guess the old saying is true, it’s only a conspiracy until it isn’t.
And, the AJC is reporting how more people who are double-jabbed and boosted are coming down with Covid anyway at pretty much the same rates as those who hare totally unvaccinated. But, they still want you to believe the vaccine works. They cannot accept how it wanes rather quickly and provides no long-term protection.
To cap off the show, how many still believe the group Black Lives Matter had honorable intentions with all the money they collected? Now, Patrisse Cullors, a self-identified Marxist, admits the $90 million in funds received by her organization were mismanaged. How many of you were scammed into thinking BLM was there for something other than to line the pockets of its founders and their friends and family? Some still cannot admit they were conned.
Ego and pride are at the root. No one likes being wrong. Worse, no one wants to admit they were gullible and fell for the ruse. For some reason, it’s better to double-down and dig in your heels, than to admit being fooled or made into a fool for helping to spread the lies.
