Media Suicide by Trump

Whio-TV News Set  Ed! at English Wikipedia
For decades legacy media have been a kind of symphony orchestra that performed hymns to the Left. They played well, forte and were consistently perfect in meter and pitch.  But there is a new conductor in town, and he has provided scores with unfamiliar notation they haven't learned how to read.  What were once melodic concerts have become a cacophony that their former audiences are, increasingly, no longer willing to hear.

President Donald Trump, Heretic, Faces the Star Chamber

Deplorable Men
I refer to his August 15 press conference where he had the unmitigated temerity to commit a heresy that cannot be forgiven.  He told the truth.  Worse, he spoke it directly to the high priests of the PC Marxist Church.  It took great courage, to be sure, but he must not go unpunished.

His Party brethren, including some closest to him, showed more discretion.  Not desiring to burn in Hell, they were quick to distance themselves from any deviation regarding church orthodoxy.  It was not lost on them that truth -- whether spoken of past or present -- is verboten.

While political correctness is cowardice masquerading as comity, it must be preserved.  How else to restore the good name of communism.  Shame on you, President Trump!

Deliver Us from Strange Children

More and more I find myself taking a decidedly biblical view of the world.  A view informed by Old Testament wisdom, law and the Covenant.  That is especially true when I think of the Adolescent Rebellion of the 60's and 70's and the evils that followed (and continue to follow) in its wake.
I dwell also on the societal consequences of the interruption of generational continuity.  For America the break was, in the main, brought about WWII; for Europe (and broadly, Western social, literary, economic, academic and religious foundations) dissolutions were brought by the combination of World Wars.  Disillusion and cynicism, following great breakdowns of confidence in institutions, secular and divine.

Nationalism? Populism? Whoa, Nellie. Not So Damn Fast

Those facile labels, in their generality -- their certitude -- smell of Leftist media, meme factories and think-tanks.  And they are unconsciously, yet eagerly embraced and repeated by fearful, ignorant, thoughtless and inarticulate eunoch Republicans.  "I don't know how to sort this stuff out on my own, so I appreciate the help.  Anyhow, if I had an original and contrary thought, I wouldn't think of arguing.  I don't want to look bad in front of my Democrat colleagues.  And how will I be seen in the media?"
