I’ve written previously about Donald Trump’s claims of a ‘rigged’ election, and how these assertions delve in part from his underlying streaks of narcissism.
However, when assessing the media’s role throughout this election cycle, the scales have been unfairly, unduly and excessively stacked against the Trump campaign.
This was apparent as America’s so called ‘uncle Joe’, recently escalated the election’s rhetoric.
After criticizing Trump’s improper behaviour on an 11 year old tape, Biden expressed his own desire to physically harm the Republican nominee.
“The press always asks me, don’t I wish I were debating him. No I wish we were in high school and I could take him behind the gym”, Biden aggressively declared, to the great thrill of the crowd.
Apart from these statements revealing the truly deplorable and classless person that is Joe Biden, they also demonstrate the pitfalls of American media.
As what has been the media response or outrage towards these threats? Nil.
No organisation is even pretending to care that the Vice- President of the United States and one of Hillary Clinton’s biggest supporters, has physically intimidated the candidate of the Republican party.
Sure, some might argue given Trump’s record and provocatory nature, that he simply deserves it.
But this reasoning cannot be employed when convenient and dismissed when it is not so.
The media can’t enter these prolonged, extravagant, wholly- contrived reactions when something inappropriate has been said by Donald Trump, and then ignore comparably inflammatory rhetoric espoused by the other side.
While this unrivalled media bias might be the quickest ticket to a victory for the globalist Clintons and their elite financiers, it is certainly not the best way for the nation or world to move cohesively forward.
Particularly when the very slogan of the Clinton campaign is ‘stronger together’.
Translation: ‘stronger together’, means that progressives are welcome to join us. But as for the rest of Americans, they are an ignorant, bigoted, racist, Islamophobic, homophobic base of ‘deplorables’ that will hold no future place.
