The fact that Hillary Clinton is even still in this race is a testament to the power of the media to choose what they believe the average citizen should see as important.
Even in scientific inquiry, if you are only fed sets of data corroborating a certain hypothesis and never see anything contradictory, you are bound to reach conclusions that support the hypothesis. This is the power of omission the media wields like a massive sword.
More than just the power of the media, it also indicates just how close to a communist state America has become.
It is fair to count both the Democrats and the mass media as one entity holding progressive ideologies. It is also fair to equate contemporary American progressivism with socialism and communism. It is also fair to define progressives as statolatrists – people who literally worship government. To be a committed progressive, one must be comfortable committing (or excusing) literally any act that is purportedly committed for the “good of the many” and these days, such acts are committed almost exclusively by those who are members of government and the progressive caste.
What we are seeing is an apparent progressive majority of America that is comfortable with, and forgiving of, any sin committed in by someone in government or of the progressive class. Two current examples:
- The private sector candidate makes misogynist comments 11 years ago and he is metaphorically crucified. Every fault and statement is endlessly investigates, parsed and subsequently magnified by the media. These crass statements are raised to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors against humanity by the wife of the current resident of the White House even as she and her husband have invited dozens of rap music impresarios to entertain at their home even though the lyrics of their works incorporate far worse language against women than anything the private sector candidate has ever said.
- The candidate of the statolatrist progressive caste, a lifelong member of the government class with a history of lying under oath, actually breaks national security laws, lies about it and is not prosecuted when others who did exponentially less are tried, convicted and sentenced to prison. She has provided cover for a husband who actually received oral sex in the Oval Office via an intern and has allegedly committed sexual assaults in the past (and is reported to continue “dicking bimbos at home”), making her an accessory to these crimes at a minimum.
The “sins” committed by anyone not behind the shield of “government” or by a member of the progressive caste are forgiven and ignored while those committed by those not under the protective cover of progressivism are not.
This illustrates how powerful (and dangerous) the worship of government has become. When members of the pro-government progressive caste are treated as high priests free to cut the hearts from the people with impunity and other members of this statolatry cult are willing to capture their non-progressive enemies and their children to become chattel and sacrificial animals to their god of government, America is on the cusp of totalitarian, communistic rule.
