While out running errands on Saturday I popped into the barbershop. The barber keeps the TVs on Fox News. Not bad, so much better than CNN, but I’d have preferred the MLB Network or NHL Network. Fox can be annoying too.
I tried not to pay any attention but one story caught my attention. There was some rally for “Immigrant Rights” in Hollywood or featuring Hollywood celebrities.
The babbling actors and actresses kept pretending that Pres. Trump had simply banned foreigners and immigrants. Mass deportations and house-to-house searches were about to happen (applause and boos).
I wondered as I listened, why do they so grossly mischaracterize what Trump is doing? Do they not know what he is doing?
That’s a possibility considering the way the lamestream media misreports all things Trump. They probably also rely on their friends and other fellow libs in the hermetically-sealed Media-Entertainment Complex bubble. Actors and actresses are generally not too bright but often want to be thought highly of by appearing studious and thoughtful.
And there is the possibility that they know they are lying but do it anyway — to be popular and signal their virtue. And maybe they want to have anyone, from anywhere, be allowed to come to the United States whenever they wish. It would be nice if they just honestly admitted that, rather than accusing Trump of calumny.
It gets frustrating watching reporters, politicians, activist groups and celebrities try to dupe the public by conflating illegal aliens with standard immigrants — who are not threatened by Trump’s orders.
If only we had a group of people who would transmit the actual facts to the general public. That’s such a great idea. I wonder if I can copyright that????
