“Turn It Off!”
Today it is becoming more and more apparent how the media machine is conspiring to divide the people of our great country, the evidence is as clear as it can be. Whether it’s the constant barrage of sensational headlines concerning abortion, gun violence, immigration, Russian collusion or the measles outbreak, the list goes on ad infinitum.
The underlying reality of any and all these topics is that the one thing they’re not telling anyone is the truth. Why? Because the truth doesn’t sell, the truth doesn’t fulfill agendas and they’re afraid that if you and yours really knew the truth you would realize just how much they lie to you and how much they want us to be divided. If the people of the United States can be divided by half-truths and misleading “news” stories, then the easier it is to put forth an agenda that is based on hate and fear.
The longer we continue to tune in to their channels and “click” on their headlines and pass their sensational falsehoods and slanderous crap around the longer and more damaging the division will become.
It’s a sad time in society when more of us know the names of our local “news” team talking heads than we do our neighbors names.
These thoughts came to me recently when my son was working on one of his Scout Merit badges and was tasked with watching the news for a week or reading the newspaper headlines for a week and writing an essay on a topic he saw. Think about that…. how many of you would let your kid watch the crap they fill our screens with for a week? I won’t, so to fulfill his requirement we went to the library and pulled old newspapers covering the California wildfires and had him write his essay on that topic.
Slowly but surely, we have allowed the media to control the message. I challenge all of you to just turn it off and stop feeding into their plan.
Until next month, my rambling is complete.
