COLUMN: The 2016 Election
The 2016 election is proving to be one of the most important in American history. The anger level of people who care deeply about their country or are just news junkies as a whole is as high and fuming as ever, and that’s why people like Republicans Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz are winning the polls. With the mainstream media – including Hollywood and news agencies – being as openly far-left as it is now (even openly endorsing Hillary Clinton for president), and much of what’s happening in the world including ISIS gaining power and Iran and North Korea increasing their nuclear ambitions, it’s not hard to see why. The world is in need of a strong American leader, one that can defeat all the problems in the world right now. It is my personal belief that the anger level won’t be subsiding anytime soon, and that’s why people like Trump and Cruz are doing so well.
Another reason? Well, another example is the June 2015 Supreme Court rulings declaring Obamacare constitutional and legalizing same-sex marriage across the country respectively. Again, people are sick and tired of the authoritarianism the current administration is imposing on the American people, so it’s no surprise that gun sales would be skyrocketing, pro-American/pro-military movies like Act of Valor, American Sniper, and Lone Survivor would be winning the box office, and many religious-themed films and television would be doing so well. Another reason why you can tell the anger level here in America is so high? Well, the news media isn’t helping matters. They are doing all they can to make sure the GOP is destroyed, and we have a one-party rule like communist China. They’ve been so invested in defeating the GOP field of candidates, its absurd. That’s why Fox News continues to be the highest rated network in cable news, because they tell stories you will never get from the liberal media. They’re immediate targets of ridicule as a result, an example is a sitcom ABC is developing that’s specifically designed to bash that news network. According to Deadline, the sitcom will be developed by former Obama employee and Harold and Kumar star Kal Penn:
The project will be informed by some of Penn’s real-life experiences appearing on various news shows as well as serving as correspondent for Vice News and spending two years in Washington as an associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement and a member of President Obama’s National Arts Policy Committee.
Now as you know, ABC is in last place as of 2012. The network is owned by The Walt Disney Company, whose film division scored recent hits in Inside Out, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and The Avengers: Age of Ultron. The network might want to think about alienating traditional Americans to the extent they have. It’s the cause of their low ratings, and that could be very bad for Disney’s bottom line.
Now to go back to the election, it’s my personal belief that the 2016 election year is going to be very dirty, and very personal. Hollywood and the left-wing press will probably do what they do best these days, engage in personal attacks against the candidates, and assassinate their character. One example? Dr. Ben Carson, who has been repeatedly been the subject of negative news reports on the broadcast networks, and vicious mockery on late-night television and NBC’s Saturday Night Live, which has devolved into vicious anti-conservative propaganda under the guise of comedy. The hits kept on coming, leading to his fall in the polls. Ted Cruz is another example of this happening. Back in December, a cartoonist from The Washington Post created a cartoon depicting his children as toy monkeys. Even devoted liberals were outraged that such a cartoon would be allowed to be printed, let alone on the internet. After removing the cartoon, Post editor Fred Hiatt issued this statement:
It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it. I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree.
Obviously, that’s 100% bull. He knew about the cartoon, or else he wouldn’t have published it. So, you see what’s in play here. It’s time for us as conservatives to tell the media to be honest this election. We need to let them know we won’t be buying into their propaganda anymore. Same thing with the entertainment industry. They too are invested to seeing the GOP completely destroyed, and they will do anything and everything in their power to make sure that happens. We won’t let them get away with it, and neither should any Republican politician currently in office.
It’s time to stand up, and tell them “Enough!”
