The truth about “Fake News” and why you should care!
Hello, my friend and welcome back! There has been a lot of talk in the news and talk shows about Fake New. I’m very concerned about this and you should be too because I believe it is just a ruse, to further infringe on our civil rights, so grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.
It seems like every time I turn around there is someone yelling about fake news in the media. So what exactly is “Fake News”? Now, that is actually a hard thing to define because the definition seems to vary depending on just who you talk to.
Common sense says that it should be general news that is wholly or in part false. Unfortunately, however, Whether or not something is believed to be true can depend on a lot of variables according to my liberal friend. Apparently, even if it’s based on facts, it can still be considered to be false. If this sounds confusing to you, then you’re not the only one.
In order to fully explain this, we need to start by looking at what prompted all of this sudden interest in fake news to start with. This all started during the election when liberals we spouting anything they could think of to make President Trump look bad in hopes others would believe it even it is false. I actually think a little of this was done on both sides, to tell the truth.
At one point back during the campaigning for Presidency, I confronted one of my Liberal friends about something he was promoting that simply wasn’t true. His response floored me because according to him, it didn’t matter if it was actually true or not, that it was just a part of the campaigning process. Say what?
Next, the mainstream media was exposed for spreading damaging reports about Donald Trump that simply were not true in order to help their candidate. Once the spotlight was on them and showing their failures, they then began to push the idea about fake news and how they want to stamp it out.
What they really mean is that they don’t want regular people to point out their ugly ways and expose them for what they really are. A few Democratic and some Republican politicians joined in to take action for their own reasons. In any case, the real definition of “Fake News” is anything that cast them or their interest in a bad light. There is still legislation pending to help abolish fake news.
Yes, I know that none of this is news to you if you have half of a brain. So why should you be concerned about it? There are plenty of reasons like the varying definitions of whether or not something Is actually true of not for one. (My father is rolling over in his grave I bet!) Leave it to politicians to take the simple idea of telling the truth and screwing it all up.
What the Politicians have in mind is to not regulate morality, but to ensure that the American people only hear the narrative that they want to push. Because of the internet and the way that information travels on it, they simply no longer have the control they once had when the large news companies were the only way to get information. They were able to hide their dirty dealing from the public. If you’re thinking that’s not bad right now, you would be wrong. The bills that have thus far been submitted do nothing short of taking away your right to free speech.
The Liberals and Muslims and minorities are pushing the idea that if something offends them then it’s not covered by free speech. Now any person with an IQ over 1 knows that no matter what you say that is important, will offend someone, somewhere. An example of this is this notion that governments and organizations can limit free speech to certain areas of their property or places.
Let me put this in a nutshell for you, all of the noise about “Free Speech” is nothing short of an attempt, by people who don’t want others to expose them, to limit your right to free speech in order to achieve their goals. If this doesn’t make your blood boil, then you may need to check your pulse!
People, our freedoms are under attack and we are in a very real war to defend it. Someone once said “All it takes for evil to win, is for good people to do nothing. ” I believe that is true and it’s up to each and every one of us to push back against this intrusion of our right to freedom of speech.
Well ,that is all for today my friend and as always I would love to hear your thought on this subject. Until nest time my friend, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared. God Bless America!
