Right now, Alabama, along with the rest of America, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. A mission that culminated in man walking on the moon and fulfilled the vision put out by President John F. Kennedy that it would be done before the end of the 1970s.
In normal times, this would be a time for celebration and unity. Americans from all sectors and political parties would drop their swords and join together to consume media of trying times and magnificent accomplishments.
Unfortunately, this is Trump’s America and because of that, the overarching theme that must pulse through every aspect of American culture, which is dominated by the media and their Democrats, is the simple undeniable and universal belief that America sucks.
It’s racist, stupid, sexist, stupid, homophobic, stupid, Islamaphobic, stupid and stupid.
Our soccer team believes it. Our celebrities believe it. Our politicians believe it.
And the news media is going to feed it to us non-stop.
For example, Werhner Von Braun was a Nazi, therefore his accomplishments on this matter are unworthy.
Another example: The space program had too many men, therefore it was problematic.
Another argument is Soviet Russia had more firsts (or something), so America should have focused less on accomplishing the mission and more on diversity.
Who is this for? What American wanted this? Who is the consumer for this news?
Inhabitants of American newsrooms and their woke superfans online.
This was not one outlet, one reporter, one editor — it is across the board.
These are major American media outlets and they cannot resist the urge to scold their fellow Americans for, in this case, the perceived sins of the past.
This is why people hate the media as a whole.
They aren’t offended, they aren’t going to write a letter, they aren’t going to demand someone be fired.
Your average American is sick of this nonsense. They roll their eyes and go on about their business.
This is why people don’t trust them. This is why they are called things like the “enemy of the people” and people applaud it.
This is how you got Trump.
President Donald Trump is the embodiment of the people who are sick of this crap.
And every time the people who work in these newsrooms and under these “legendary” banners write these articles try to scold Americans for some clearly arbitrary offense of the day, or the past, they might as well drop a dollar into Trump’s reelection campaign.
