Since the moment the polls closed on November 8, the Western establishment media and their partners in the State and Corporate classes have been working overtime to embed another propaganda-filled narrative deep into the minds of the American public. This operation involves President-elect Donald Trump, the recent fake news meme, and Russia. The goal of the operation? To further divide the American public between Statist, establishment-worshiping minions and principled, critically thinking truth seekers. Let’s take a look at the pieces of the puzzle.
First, I should make it perfectly clear that I am not a supporter of Donald Trump, nor am I a supporter of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, Gary Johnson, Jill Stein, or any other politician. As far as I am concerned these people are all a part of the problem. At best they are naive for thinking they can change the system from within; at worst they are actively shilling for the establishment to propagate division and support for the dying system.
Also, I do not buy the narrative that Donald Trump is an outsider who somehow duped both the corporate media and long-term politicos with his victory that nobody claims to have seen coming. Time and time again we have seen that anyone who aims to truly challenge the status-quo is not allowed to win. I say “allowed” because whether you are talking about easily hacked Diebold voting machines, the uselessness of the popular vote, the ever-increasing influence of money on politics, or the outright oligarchy that controls our world – your vote does not matter. Presidents are selected and not elected. For some reason a growing portion of the “alternative” media seems to have forgotten this.
Either way, Trump’s role seems to be that of the Great Divider. He has been brought on board to say absurd one-liners that can be repeated by the media ad nauseum and create a panic in the half of the population that believes he will launch World War 3. Meanwhile, Trump will betray his supporters by breaking campaign promises like every president before him. Instead, he will bring about more of the same old game we have seen played through the Obama, Bush, and Clinton regimes. Trump gets the privilege of running his mouth with controversial statements (whether he means them or not) while the media is happy to repeat everything he says.
Bottom Line: Trump is the establishment’s “anti-establishment” candidate. He is being used to create division while promoting a false resistance to the true establishment.
If Trump is the establishment’s wolf in sheep’s clothing, the Fake News meme is the establishment’s tool for distraction and division. Since Trump was declared the winner, the corporate media (read: actual fake news) has pushed story after story claiming that government insiders have evidence that the Russians interfered with the U.S. elections by propagating fake news stories that favored Trump and attacked Hillary Clinton.
The Washington Post and other mouthpieces for the establishment ran with a report from the organization PropOrNot which claimed to identify websites that were spreading fake news and quite possibly working as Russian propagandists. The list contained Activist Post, Mint Press News, The Free Thought Project, The Anti Media, and many other independent media outlets. Essentially, the corporate media is repeating baseless accusations in an attempt to demonize both Donald Trump and his supposedly unexpected victory AND Russia.
This feeds back into the love/hate Trump loop, further dividing Americans. Those who hate Trump feel justified in their discontent and are happy to buy media lies about Russian interference in the election and fake news spread by uneducated Trump supporters. On the other side of the fence, Trump supporters feel justified in their distaste for the corporate media and their apparent “anti-Trump bias.” The media’s focus on Trump and repetition of unconfirmed rumors from unnamed government sources fuels the anti-establishment mood of the pro-Trump camp.
Again, I stress that from my analysis I have concluded that Trump is a part of the program. He is keeping the people divided and distracted while the American public fights about the veracity of their news, and the government searches for ways to begin regulating independent journalism while pretending to care about truth.
Bottom Line: The Fake News meme is being used to attack independent media that offers an alternative take to the party line. It also happens that the fake news meme serves as a way to divide Trump supporters and critics, as well as point a finger at Russia.
