Barack Obama complained. So did Hillary Clinton, (who claimed it was responsible for her losing the election) and of course, a multitude of Mainstream Media figures. Even the Pope issued a complaint against it, likening it to excrement.
“Fake News” – which in reality, is actually news not power-approved. News that speaks truth to power. News not processed through the filter of the socio-political establishment. And yet, people are falling for it, not wanting to be seen as “fooled” by something not real. What follows is a nearly-real time case in point:
Here was the headline, via Breitbart, a news site which has been consistently aggressive in its effort to share the truth of the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton, and the 2016 Election. For that, it is also a site now under attack by repeated accusation from the far left of disseminating “fake news.”
Obama Urges Soldiers to Question Trump’s Authority, ‘Criticize Our President’
It is a seemingly outlandish headline, and as such, some calling themselves “conservative” were quick to dismiss it as “fake news.” One social media comment demanded the headline be accompanied by President Obama’s actual words, declaring “not even Obama” would say something so stupid.
EXCEPT HE DID.
And if those sadly lazy, quick to judge and dismiss readers had taken but a moment to peruse the Breitbart article, they would have discovered it was in fact sourced with Barack Obama’s own words via a recent speech the president gave to military personnel assembled at MacDill Air Force Base, in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday.
Breitbart went so far as to provide a link within its story to a CNS News article that had embedded video of Mr. Obama’s statements, including those outlined in the above headline. Breitbart, and other alternative media sites like this one, are now fighting a fully-engaged counter-attack by the Mainstream Media that is but another version of the Emperor Has No Clothes.
Get enough people to fear being embarrassed by allegations of “fake news” that real and legitimate news stories are quickly buried beneath the weight of Establishment-directed accusation – the same Establishment that actively promoted the story of a YouTube video being the cause of the Benghazi Massacre, or that if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, or that an Obama presidency would be “deficit neutral”, or that we have had no terror attacks on American soil since Obama was president, or that the IRS was not targeting conservative groups, or that Hillary Clinton suffered from allergies…no….heat exhaustion…no…the flu…no…walking pneumonia, that Donald Trump would be defeated in a landslide, and on, and on, and on…
What is truly fake in this scenario is the fake outrage over allegedly fake news.
DON’T FALL FOR IT.
If you do, you will only be allowing yourself to be controlled by the likes of these people:
The Establishment wants nothing more than for you to return to the mass flock of the ignorant masses. It’s up to you to allow that to happen, or to choose truth.
If it comes down to the power-approved New York Times or Breitbart (or D.C. Whispers) you best choose wisely, because there are forces gathered beyond many’s ability to imagine, preparing to deny success to a Trump administration, and they are counting on your ignorance to do so.
