I'm beginning to feel it's hopeless. Russia/Fox News (pushing same propaganda) are destroying us with lies. I made mistake of going to a #MAGA account & reading comments - they believe DEMs are committing massive voter fraud. We know it's GOP playing dirty.
How can we as a nation ever come together if half of us believe entirely different narrative? Russian propaganda is literally tearing this nation apart. We have a president, entire party & major "news" station reaffirming lies - governing w/ lies, even altering video to do it.
Do you see how far down the rabbit hole we've fallen? The purpose of disinformation is to make us all stop believing in very concept of truth. They want us to shrug our shoulders & ignore it all, feeling truth is unknowable. This is so fucking dangerous.
It's not possible to reason with Trump voters because they're living in an alternate reality - where immigrants are pouring over border to kill us, Dems are committing voter fraud, minorities are all on welfare & Trump is a damn hero taking down a Dem pedophile ring. Seriously.
When I was on #MAGA account, I began countering their lies, making counter-arguments, then realized how futile it is. Their reality is not my reality - there is no possibility of agreeing. It's like fighting over whether it's night or day with someone in a different time zone.
Except their reality doesn't exist at all. They don't play by guidelines we do - facts, legitimate sources, proof. They accept what Fox "News" and a lying president tells them. I tell myself - forget them, let them believe their crap. But then I realize it will get so much worse.
Dictators don't have to ban the media to take power. They only need to control it, have their supporters buy it up. With Sinclair controlling what news anchors in 1/3 of the stations in the country can air, we are already heading into scary territory.
I already feel the mainstream media is compromised. They continue to attack Trump on their op-ed pages (which most Americans don't read), but the major headlines are often misleading & overall gist of the coverage is that Trump is an ass, but everything's still normal.
Everything is NOT normal & we're falling into a fascist state at a dizzying speed now. We have a government that LIES to us daily. We've come to accept it as fact w/out stopping it. WH literally released an altered video the other day to support a lie to ban a reporter.
President then immediately threatened the ban of other reporters if they don't start reporting in a "respectful" manner. Media SHOULD be screaming right now, sounding the alarm bells. They aren't. Probably they'll just start behaving better so Trump won't pull their credentials.
I really fear for us. Media keep talking about Trump & 2020 election, but there's simply no way America will still be America in 2 more years if he stays in power. We are falling at a dizzying speed - so fast we all just want to cover our eyes & take a break from it all. We can't
