I have been observing events for some time, analyzing the landscape and taking in the facts, and reaching conclusions. I am concerned about what is happening to both my country and the world at large. To begin with, I am concerned about the consequences Trump’s so-called “fake news” nonsense. At his latest rally, he has whipped his supporters into a frenzy and there were hints that they wanted to attack reporters because they were brainwashed by Trump’s nonsense about the media. As an autism ambassador, I have a decent understanding of the inner workings of the human mind. When you whip a bunch of people into a frenzy, you can get them to do anything, including attacking reporters. Some of these rallies even took special precautions to protect reporters in case the crowd wanted blood.
It’s not just reporters that are in danger because of Trump’s war on the media. I learned that a rancher in Texas attacked anti-Trump protestors with a gun because he was brainwashed by Trump’s “fake news” nonsense. The protestors were trying to launch a balloon that said, “You are not alone” in Spanish in order to let the separated children know they had the protestors’ support. They were trying to help the children and give them hope and this brainwashed man attacked them because he accepted Trump’s “fake news” nonsense. This is how the truth dies in America, with a tyrant’s propaganda.
This is the dark genius behind Trump’s war on the media. He has lied so much and manipulated people’s views so greatly that he is effectively slowly turning America against itself. Some may ask how this happened. Well, Hitler once said “people swallow lies easily if they are big enough”. Mentioning Hitler may be extreme, but there are clear similarities between how he and Trump use propaganda and misinformation to brainwash their citizens. I am terrified about what is going to happen to the world around me as Trump continues to create chaos and disorder with his silver tongue.
