Journalists are Not the Enemy

Posted: August 16, 2018 in Life, News, Politics

There are two sides in this.

On the one side, you have a man who acts more like a cult leader than a world leader.
.
On the one side, you have a man who tells his followers to only believe him and his faithful and then says that all others are lying to them. He tells them not to believe what they see or hear with their own eyes and ears, but rather only believe what he tells them to be truth.
.
He praises the honor, integrity, character, and intelligence of those he places in his inner circle, the ones that you the faithful are to believe. He tells you to believe in them for they are great people, the best people, and far better and more trustworthy than any others. Then, the moment they leave his cult, and many do, the new truth that you must now believe is that these people have always been fools, ignorant, liars, without value or character, and absolutely untrustworthy.
.
As for anyone who will not join his cult to begin with? They’re not merely disloyal to him, but they are the enemy. And they are not merely his enemy, but rather they enemy of his people- THE people -and the country they live in.
.
Like many third world dictators who have sought unchecked power, Trump condemns anything that restrains his ability to get and do whatever he wants, and he casts any who would dare criticize him as his enemy; claiming by extension that his enemies are the enemies of the people and the country. Like many third world dictators, Donald Trump demands you choose sides.
.
On the other side, you have thousands of newspapers, news magazines, news stations, news programs, and news sites comprising tens of thousands of people working for them day in and day out. You have the institution of the free press, it’s greatest weapons its pen and the truth, its greatest shield the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution.
.
These are things the current President seems to hold in contempt.
.
When the President of the United States stands before the world and praises dictators but points his fingers at the free press of the United States and proclaims them to be the enemy of the people and the enemy of this country, he proves two things beyond a shadow of a doubt.
.
1- He is unfit for the office he holds.
.
2- If there is an enemy of the people and the country in this equation, it’s the man who currently holds the office of President of the United States and demands that the country behave as if it was a third world dictatorship under his control.
.
The press is not the enemy of the people.
.
The press is not the enemy of the country.
.
The press is not the enemy of the truth.
.
More and more each day, Donald Trump demands that people take a side. More and more each day, Donald Trump makes it clear what the two sides are.
.
You can choose the side of America, or you can choose the side of Donald Trump.
.
Choose America. Stand with our free press who are, rather than an enemy of the people, the voice of the people.
.
Journalists are not the enemy
.
US newspapers unite against Donald Trump’s ‘fake news’ rhetoric
