I failed to see it after the election and got it in spades with a Facebook fight with lifetime friends that made me take pause. Hhhhmmmm, This is not going well….
But the HYSTERIA has continued. It is in response to almost anything the 45th President says.
It’s bled over onto his children and their business ventures – Nordstrom chucked Ivanka’s successful brand off the shelf given a coordinated hit campaign called #grabyourwallet. In their own words, here is #grabyour wallet and their mission statement. Never having met, Shannon Coulter and Sue Atencio joined forces and announced on Twitter they’d be boycotting any retailer that carried Trump products, with the goal of motivating those companies on the list to stop doing business with the Trump family.
Are Trump’s children responsible for his political platform? Should their business ventures suffer accordingly? What if Malia or Sascha Obama had a clothing or accessories line which was summarily boycotted by objectors to their father’s political stance? I’m just guessing but likely we’d see the largest howls from the media and other Progressive facilitators as to how abhorrent, racist, unjust and evil boycotters were.
I have been ill prepared for the hate. For the venom. For the Facebook posts done regularly, (multiple times) daily by some, declaring absolute bile and blatant hatred for 45. Again, if the anti-Obama crown had even considered something even close to this, there would be massive outcries form the left. If not arrests. What’s the result for Trump supporters? Looking at FB much less often.
Not to mention that the Progressive movement has such an enormous leg up on most media platforms who as liberals themselves are sorting, blocking, pushing narratives that suit their proclivity. Familiarize yourself with Twitter – regularly Conservative posters are blocked and dumped. Pre-Election several media outlets noted the censorship of Conservatives; The Hill: Silencing Conservative Voices on Social Media .
The Press – The Main Stream Media has not responded well to Trump (via Bannon) branding them Enemies of the State. I’m not sure about this long term strategy of repeatedly punching your critics in the face but Bannon seems certain. More to come about his well-defined and undeniable agenda, but buckle up when his address at CPAC includes this: “If you think they are going to give you your country back without a fight you are sadly mistaken. Every day it is going to be a fight.” Bannon’s on TRUMP Agenda at 2017 CPAC See 5:40 Mark for Quote.
At CPAC Bannon asked listeners to hold Trump accountable. He maintained they will keep pushing forward. We’ve got time. Trump inherited a mess – and he’s getting no credit for any level of success. His supporters are sticking with him, no matter what and we are not tuning to the MSM media for interpretation any time soon.
