Trump Starts Overtly Persecuting The Accredited Media!

Yesterday, Trump held a summit at Trump Tower and invited a host of leading journalists, news anchors and executives from America’s top accredited media corporations. The invitees accepted the invitation, thinking it would be an opportunity to grill the President-elect on his bigotry, damaging policies and many character flaws. But instead, Trump used this meeting as an opportunity to vent his personal vendetta against the accredited media, subjecting his guests to a series of terrifying rants, laden with implicit threats and intimidation.

The guests were horrified when Trump lashed out at various networks, calling them liars and shills, and accusing them of unfair coverage of the election. He criticized them profusely for accurately covering his many bigoted statements, corruption and sex scandals, and threatened them with legal action and intimidation if the dared challenge his authority again. He also insinuated that they were somehow protecting Hillary, and that ignoring Russia’s attempt to influence our elections with the stolen Wikileaks documents was the wrong thing to do.

Never before has our country witnessed such an aggressive and outspoken criticism of the accredited media. Social scholars are worried that this mistreatment of the media signals a coming persecution of the free press, which we have witnessed over and over again in fascist regimes. It’s time to take a stand against the oppressive Trump regime, and to show our support for the many accredited media corporations that most Americans hold dear to their hearts, such as CNN, MSNBC and the New York Times. Although it scares me to admit it; if we fail to speak out now, we may never have the opportunity to do so again in America.

It is very scary indeed! Trump wants a total media blackout on his many flaws and misdeeds! Somebody needs to act as a watchdog, holding him to account at every turn and scrutinizing his every move. The accredited media is that watchdog, and he wants to shut us down!

Black Lives Matter

Sadly, I’m not surprised. This site BROKE the Trump Foundation scandal. Meanwhile, we all know that Trump is a secret white nationalist conspiring with Putin and other “deplorables” to implement racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, and Islamophobia. This is not a conspiracy THEORY; it’s a conspiracy FACT.

I think the Trump foundation scandal was a collective effort involving various accredited news sources, but yes I think our article was what finally forced them to shut down the Trump Foundation in New York City. About time!

Look, I was sick to my stomach when I heard about this abuse of the absolute denizens of the Fourth Estate, the free defenders of our Democracy.

I really needed a Safe Space. These poor upstanding media people had no idea that they were being forced before a grandstanding Trump, who gloated and Lorded it over them all, and basically told them “Unless you toe the line, you’re fired!”

This is an utter travesty in a Democracy, and the bastard hasn’t even been inaugurated yet!

I need my Safe Space again…

It’s disgusting! The accredited media are the overseers of our democracy – they let us know when a politician does something wrong, or when they deserve praise. Without them, we are uninformed about who to vote for or which political ideology to subscribe to. Trump wants to shut them down so he can use his mind tricks and snake oil salesman tactics to trick people into supporting him and allow him to oppress women and minorities.

Sorry it troubled you so. It made me giddy as a school girl and i hope the media scum is fed what they have been dishing out.

I was sick to my stomach when I heard about this – Trump ordering the denizens of the Fourth Estate to attend at his lair, at his whim, and then flailing at them in such a fashion.

What a disgrace – everyone who was anyone from the critically important Not Fake media was required to attend, and Trump then publicly castigated them. I really needed a Safe Space to escape from the emotional turmoil, and have a think about this.

Here we are, the Orange Bastard hasn’t even been inaugurated, and he’s making demand upon demand against the last bastion of freedom in our Democracy.

It’s even as if he’s personally lining them up and saying: “Unless you toe the line, YOU’RE FIRED!”

Oh, I feel sick again – to my Safe Space…

Yes, I agree. The media needs to be licensed, much like the taxi industry is licensed in most cities. Just because you can drive a car doesn’t mean you can work as a taxi driver – you first need to be accredited by a license-issuing authority. The same should be true for the media – just because you can write, speak and present news, doesn’t mean you should be able to start a media outlet. Only accredited journalists, approved by a dedicated government department, should be allowed to do so, to make sure they are reporting accurate facts. This could be called the department of truth, or something like that.

Yes, that’s a good idea, although many accredited media outlets such as CNN have often changed their message without any reference to the fact that they are doing so, such as using the term Climate Change instead of Global Warming, calling Trump racist during his presidential campaign after praising him for many years, and discouraging Islamaphobia after encouraging it after 9/11. I think that’s ok, as long as the message is consistent with the current policy objectives of our accredited officials. Our short term goals as progressives change over time, and our message and reporting should seamlessly change to reflect that.

No you’re right sorry – it’s not customary for an accredited journalist to make reference to inconsistencies in reporting. It’s best to move forward with the current set of messages without reference to the past. My apologies.

Pbier, you are sort of correct but the beauty of progressiveism is you can say what ever and change constantly and all is good. You can like Islam one moment and the next realize how oppressive and horrible it is.

Isnt it fun!

The correct department is Ministry of Truth. You havent been refering to your 1984 bible have you. Bad progressive, bad!

Trump needs to be stopped. I dont care if he brought the truth to light by exposing the mainstream media for what they are (bought stooges), he cant keep carrying on like he is. The last thing we want is someone making changes.

We may have to do more than just speak out against the persecution of the accredited media. Dr. Martin Luther King taught us that we have a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. Following his wise counsel, progressives today demonstrate against Trump in a manner that would be called an unlawful riot in normal, just times. In normal, just times, demonstrators rampaging through steets and highways might be shot and killed. We no longer have Dr. King, since he was murdered by the alt-right. I guess the best moral compass we have is the Social Scholars mentioned in the article. We must listen closely when they define which laws are unjust, and when they give the signal to riot, I mean demonstrate.

I can’t stop having a horrible dream wherein it is revealed that white people are all part of a secret society whose stigma and sacrament is the alien DNA they carry in their genes. In this dream they are all insouciantly going about they lives as they await the Signal from one in whom the taint runs stronger than in run of the mill Caucasoid otherkin when lo it is revealed that this biological transmitter is none other than Donald Trump at whose Roman Salute in the Washington Mall they all fall to working furious slaughter on their virtuous POC stepbrothers.

Do you guys think it means anything?

Yes. It means you should pack your bags (bot that kind of packing) and head to fag friendly Saudi Arabia. Be sure and dress and act as flamboyent as possible when you arrive.

Oh and take friends.

That’s very scary! I’m absolutely petrified of what Trump will do. Is he really going to send entire families of undocumented Americans over the border, Nazi-style?? Somebody wake me up from this nightmare!

So if a redneck thanks laws that say you can kill a black person is unjust they can break that law?

I AM NO SCHOLAR, but according to a strict interpretation of Dr. King’s speech, I would have to say: “Yes, that is what he is telling us.” He said: “Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘an unjust law is no law at all’.”

HOWEVER, I think you will learn from accredited media that SOME GROUPS HAVE MORE MORAL AUTHORITY THAN OTHERS. You may have observed that certain groups make up the majority of rioters since the 1960’s. But not many rednecks riot. I could be confused, but my take on it is that the rioters, who had keen moral perception, heeded their moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws more than the rednecks. There is an article this web site called The Oppression Pyramid – A Lesson In Critical Race Theory. It shows you how to numerically rate your oppression. Rednecks are not specifically listed on the pyramid, but a white male Christian heterosexual from the south is going to rate HIGHLY PRIVILEGED. If I am confused, I HOPE YOU WILL STRAIGHTEN ME OUT, but DO HIGHLY-PRIVILEGED PEOPLE (like rednecks) even have the moral capacity to distinguish between just and unjust laws?

Most states have a sales tax or gross-receipts tax. They are regressive taxes that hurt the poor. I think sales tax is unjust. I am going to start doing what Dr. King and St. Augustine would have done: refuse to pay it. I am going to just stay there in line at the store till the clerk removes the sales tax. That’s what Rosa Parks would have done. I’ll refuse to move till they remove the sales tax. ONE HAS A MORAL RESPONSIBLITY TO DISOBEY AN UNJUST LAW. AN UNJUST LAW IS NO LAW. Somebody has to do this first. Maybe some day my picture will be in American-History books. Everybody please join me.

I admire your courage and moral integrity sugarlock. Black Lives Matter is showing us just how activism should be done, by blocking highways and chanting threats towards cops. In order to effect real change, you have to be radical, and clearly it’s going to take riots on a whole new level to stop Trump.
