The Power of the Media and the Dependency of the Left

The media has the power to make anyone look like an idiot. They have that influence. The media can make unfounded claims about somebody, question that person’s moral character and make it sound convincing to the common person, when it’s really not convincing to anyone who takes the time to investigate. They have that power and if they target you, you can’t really defend against yourself because the media is never going to allow you to explain why you’re not an idiot.

Similarly, if the political left wants you to look like an idiot, they will since they control the media. Because so many foolish people and sheep listen to the media and take what they say as fact, it’s going to be in their minds that you’re an idiot. Which is why many good people are shy and would rather not go into politics to become trusted politicians. But we need people to fight back, charge them with being idiots and put them on the defensive.

The power of the media, Hollywood and celebrity comes into play especially in award shows and late night interviews where there are huge audiences they can preach to and cram liberal views down people’s throats. It’s prevalent throughout and across that spectrum. Most people in the media, at least the mainstream media, think the same way. They tend to be on the left politically and it shows in their “reporting.”

Actors and musical artists are the same. When they have an opportunity to express their viewpoints, they take it. It endears them to the group as a whole and immediately they’re elevated to the status of social justice warriors and media darlings.

It’s Psych 101 and the principles of Abraham Maslow, specifically the third component of his hierarchy of needs model – love and sense of belonging – also come into play. People want to belong, to be liked and belong to some sort of community. Not usually in a commune type setting but they want to have friends and associate with people who believe like them. It’s easier when they have that set of ideals in common with others around them. It makes getting through life easier.

The media need the left and the left need the media. It’s a sick relationship, really. In today’s age of social media and alternative media, however, it’s possible to combat this. It’s time sane people stand up and confront the left and the media on all the issues they champion. It’s time to turn the tables on them and expose them for the idiots they are and put them on the defensive.
