1) NEW THREAD directed to the thousands of new #Trump supporters who have followed me over the last week because of events in #Syria. I want to take this opportunity to make you consider things you are not aware of because of the bias mainstream media, which you guys know exist
2) in the US if you consider there reporting of Trump, especially pre-election. Many of you describe Assad as a dictatorship and his government as a regime. If we look towards the Syrian Presidential election in 2014, Assad won 88.7% of the votes with a turnout of 73.42%.
3) This is a significant amount of voter turnout considering the last time the US had a higher percentage per capita was in 1896. This would suggest that as the war has progressed and the jihadist element became more evident, the people recognised Assad as a source of stability
4) and peace despite mainstream media efforts to demonise him. Questions arise about electoral fraud, but this overlooks that the elections were overseen by observers from over 30 countries including from post-colonial states like Brazil, India and Uganda.
5) The observers said in a joint statement that “the Syrian people participated in the elections in total freedom, contrary to Western and regional propaganda that tried to fabricate a false narrative”.
6) A YouGov Siraj poll on Syria commissioned by The Doha Debates and funded by the Qatar Foundation in January 2012, found that at least 55% of Syrians supported Assad. It must be noted that this poll was funded and commissioned by Qatar who has been one of the key anti-Assad
7) players, and even their poll, which could be susceptible to bias, found that the majority of Syrians supported Assad. It must also be highlighted that the poll has since been deleted from the The Doha Debates but the results of the poll are still cited by The Guardian in an
8) opinion piece by Guardian columnist and author Jonathan Steele. These facts cannot be ignored. Also the US as a Christian nation, why do people not LISTEN to Syria's Christians, one of the oldest Christian communities in the world, at all? They overwhelmingly support the gov.
9) Finally, Thanks for having an open enough mind to find out what is happening in #Syria. You guys have the power to avoid war and make this world a safer place to live.
