I just realized it again today, something I have realized many times before. I will promise myself to never forget it again. People in the media on the center left are even worse that the right wingers that they say they will protect us from. I know Jimmy Dore says it all the time, but today I am really feeling it. Its a sick and helpless feeling. Of course the big media pundits, like Rachel Maddow making $30,000 a day at MSNBC will obviously will play this game. What really makes me lose hope in humanity when the little guys like Michael Brooks play that same game. Sorry, but I don’t think your phrase “dumb, dumb left” that you use to put down the true left independent media is going to get you the next gold ticket from MSNBC, but you never know, keep shitting on people who love Bernie and hate Hillary and you may impress the corporate overlords.
These center left people appear decent in many ways, but they are all too accepting of liars and hypocrites for no other reason than the fact that this appears to be normal. Issues get lost all too easily. For example a couple big issues that Hillary Clinton scares people on – World War 3 with Russia, and world-wide water quality destruction with Fracking. These are life threatening, life changing issues at stake here, yet there are whole leagues of media and others brainwashed to believe that hypocrisy is just part of the game. Somehow they rationalize this….or shall I say normalize, since its the new fancy word at play for these leagues of poor brainwashed souls who devote themselves to the pretzel logic of making themselves sound smart by putting down others. No matter how fancy their words, no matter how smart they try to sound, these people who are supposed to report on politics and news are entirely in their own bubbles. Its bad. Heads in their asses, and they just keep losing. Big league losers.
Trace the root of all our problems back to what I call the “Normalization of Hypocrisy”. All this talk of normalizing Trump from the same robotic eggheads who said that Hillary Clinton would make a great president. These people are dumb and numb to all around them. I will herebt dub them the “Dumb, Numb Left”.
We all know about right wing hypocrisy….the way it comes to light has been obvious, but more sinister is the way that lies and hypocrisy have been accepted on the left. Now we have seen that in full force, in the humiliating defeat of Hillary Clinton. I ask for humility.
“will they show any humility? or are they completely dumb and numb to the world outside their bubbles?”
As you know I am a contributor to the Majority Report, and the songs that I send in on Fridays are sometimes my attempt at correcting some of the nonsense on the show that has contributed to what I call the normalization of hypocrisy, and the lack of humility when confronting what they call the “Dumb, dumb left”. Famously, my song “Orange Lemonade” received a coo-koo clock and was cut off in mid song, simply because the song expressed the fact that even if Hillary was president we are still more or less fucked.
This is part 1 in a never-ending multi part series….more later on “Dumb dumb left vs. dumb and numb left.”
I wonder if Michael Brooks would care to debate me now? What does it take to get 20 minutes of his precious time? Does he care to better himself by getting into the monkey cage with me? Or is he afraid I will leave his world shattered and expose him? It could go either way, stay tuned!!!
