I am sure you could think of half a dozen individuals you would like to be our next president rather than Donald Trump. I know I could, but not one of the professional politicians running this year would be on my list. I honestly believe Trump is winning because so many people are voting against the “political establishment” when they cast their vote for Trump. I have written in the past that the day was coming, when no longer will the candidate who raises the most money, be declared the winner long before the votes are cast. That day has arrived and apparently they still don’t “get it.” The flood of money being raised to stop Trump is simply driving more votes his way.
So the media is now starting to play the “Hate Card.” Just read the editorials, look at the political cartoons, and the covers of various magazines. Images of Hitler, Mussolini, KKK etc. are being used to inflame voters passion against this “evil monster.” “He must be stopped!” When the great “propaganda machine” is unleashed, by those who are seeing their agenda fail, mayhem and violence are sure to follow.
They’ve done it before. As a Vietnam Veteran returning home in the summer of 1969 I experienced the hatred the media generated towards all returning vets. We were told to change into civilian clothes as soon as possible and keep our Vietnam experience off our job applications. The media was against the war but their “hate campaign” was towards those of us who fought for our country.
So now they’ve focused the propaganda machine on Trump and anyone who dares to support him. His only support is from “uneducated white males” according to many in the media. I have always loved “The Week” magazine but they have joined the fray. A U.K. polling company claims that 20% of Trump supporters believe Lincoln should never have freed the slaves. So I went to Google and searched “Trumps comments about African Americans” and came up with nothing negative. Yet the media is intentionally trying to pit African Americans against Trump. Maybe it will work, but I believe most Americans are tired of being told by the media, what to think and who should get their vote.
