    Exactly. The media has blown up the Floyd case into something it isnt. 1000 people per year are killed by the police. The real tragedy about Floyd is there is very little true outrage. If there was we would hear about all of the 1000. Faux outrage is sickening and disturbing.

    I agree.

    The societal problems we have today are because the media is running false narratives and gullible people don't take the time to research and find out the truth.
    "What happens is of little significance compared with the stories we tell ourselves about what happens. Events matter little, only stories of events
    affect us.

    That is why I don't use the word media without quotes. "Media."

    The Lame Stream Media


    Democrats


    Political Leftists.


    The Politicization of the Lame Stream comes from Democrats. In which the Lame Stream media enables the Democrats to get away with whatever. The Political left is their Pod People who do the pointing and wailing.


    They are traitors to the Country. To the Constitution. To the people. They have left We the People with only one answer to deal with them. Talking, Debate, is useless. Negotiating is useless. Protesting them is useless. They cannot be voted out in their the areas they control. Accepting them can no longer be tolerated.


    If nothing is done.....then the Founding Fathers Dreams and Hope is over with. This Country will be no more and make no mistake. Those traitors will destroy it.
    History does not long Entrust the care of Freedom, to the Weak or Timid!!!!! Dwight D. Eisenhower ~

    I can't decide whether it should be Trump first and Trump supporters second, or the other way around.

    Right, you need more people on the government dole to help achieve your agenda. Why don't you put both as first?
