Your fears have been confirmed.
The media have not changed. They have been against Trump since he announced his candidacy. I took this photograph on October 19, 2016. The Atlantic says “don’t vote for Trump” in the upper right corner. The New Yorker says “last chance to train Trump”. Time said “Total Meltdown”. And the Economist depicts Trump as the asshole of the Republican elephant.
Need I say more? There will be a hoax a week between now and November.
1. Nominate a presidential candidate who is manifestly in mental decline. He is embarassing to watch.
2. Nominate a Vice-Presidential candidate more PC and less popular than Biden or most of the other runners-up for the Democratic presidential nomination.
3. Burn the downtown cores of cities when they are in Democratic Party control.
4. Promise whites that they will suffer for all eternity for their “whiteness”, because whiteness, like a voodoo emanation, is the all-sufficient explanation for black underperformance.
5. Promise to defund the police and in the meantime fail to support them against rising tides of crime and lawless behaviour.
6. Rigorously pursue policies in the work place that discriminate against white males, and require thought crime confessions in public shaming ceremonies.
7. Invade neighborhoods after dark in deliberate acts of annoyance and terrorization.
8. Blame Trump for the urban violence and intimate that a Biden election victory might possibly end it, or not.
Do I have this right? Am I missing anything?
Seen in this light, the clever minds of the Democratic Party must be wondering at this stage whether their strategy is working. Thirty seconds of clear thought would indicate that this strategy is suicidal, yet they cannot back down, or shift to something more positive. They are doubling down on a bad bet. Meantime their thugs are out losing the election for them,
Have you noticed the meme going around that Portland is “mostly peaceful”?
I am reminded of the line in Gladiator, “people should know when they are conquered”.
This is Kevin Roose (@kevinroose) on Twitter this morning. He makes the case that the mainstream media are being circumvented, and that, in consequence, millions of people are getting a view of reality that the MSM cannot control. This comes as news to them, it would seem. I have seldom seen so well confirmed the view that we are all in information bubbles.
My liberation began when I got rid of cable television, with its state-approved sources of “news” and its minute number of approved filtering agents for the much wider assortment of filtering agents, whom I choose.
The following is Kevin Roose of the New York Times, reporting to a CNN panel his surpise at “discovering” the parallel universe of FaceBook.
“Didn’t have time to list it, but I pulled some data for this segment:
August FB interactions CNN: 21 million NYT: 8M Ben Shapiro: 55M
August FB video views CNN: 73M NYT: 12M The Hodgetwins: 84M
August FB shares: CNN: 2.2M NYT: 800K Dan Bongino: 5.6M”
I had onlhy become aware of the cheerfully moronic Hodgetwins last week, and Dan Bongino is as yet unknown to me. But I will look them up, fast.
NYT's @KevinRoose says the MSM is missing what's happening on Facebook: "It's a completely parallel universe, in which Trump's response to Covid-19 has been fast and effective; in which these riots in Portland and other cities are THE biggest news story in the world…" pic.twitter.com/OdVYcE2FGA

I feel like an onlooker to a battle in the US Civil War. I can hear the rattle of musketry and the blast of cannon fire. In places our side, the Union, is falling back and needs reinforcements. In others the Confederate onslaughts are being driven back with losses. The outcome is still uncertain, but the generalship is superb. While my eyes tell me that the outcome is still in doubt, my ears are telling me that the attacks are being rebuffed. Our side is firing back accurately. Troops are moving to the right places. Commanders are keeping their cool and feeding in reserves at the right places and times.
General Biden is decomposing before our eyes, as Scott Adams says. General Trump is maintaining his cool. He was boring in his acceptance speech, largely because he was not allowed to be impromptu, and had to read off the teleprompter. His speech was long because he had so much to boast about. And the fascists of Antifa keep reminding us that the fate that awaits us is a perpetual boot to the face for being white.
In my view anti-whitism is the largely unspoken but real issue in the election. I mean that everyone is aware of the claims being made against white people, but no one is explicitly responding in public discourse to the challenge. As Barrelstrength is not in the line of fire we can respond more overtly to this gigantic lie. In brief, the manifest failure of American blacks to equal the performance of other ethnic or racial groups is being attributed to the evil power of systemic racism. Systemic racism is a weird voodoo that, unbeknownst to its practitioners, which are exclusively white people, is an evil emanation of white institutions, thoughts, and culture. Blacks are so feeble that they have fallen under the domination of these evil mojo emanations of Everything in the World made by White People, and since white people made everything in the United States (according to this view), systemic racism cannot be cured until everything white is destroyed.
This view has many white allies, which consist of BLM activists and antifa, and thier dupes in the intelligentsia.
Observe [below] the white woman in the pink sweater being menaced by an angry mob for failing to raise a fist for BLM. Ladies and gentlemen, this is your future, if Biden and the Democrats win. This picture is what the election is about. It is not anything smaller or different. It is not, therefore, about COVID, the economy, China, Russia, or foreign interference in US elections. It is about the future state of white people. Will there be a boot stomping on your face forever for being white, or not?
Seen in that light, the outcome of the election is obvious.
1) In a scene that played out several times Monday, a Black Lives Matter protest that began in Columbia Heights confronted White diners outside D.C. restaurants, chanting “White silence is violence!” and demanding White diners show their solidarity. #DCProtests pic.twitter.com/fJbPM76vb0
