Media bias hatred.

Never in our history has the media so thoroughly and so openly despised a U.S. president. Donald Trump’s victory last November was so shocking to our bi-coastal media elites that they are now utterly incapable of any objective coverage or even sober discussion of the Trump presidency.

So appalled are the establishment media grandees at Trump’s victory, so wounded are they at having so utterly failed to see Trump’s election victory coming, and so outraged are they at Donald Trump’s frequent and outspoken criticism of them, that they have effectively replaced the Democratic Party as the opposition to a Republican administration.

For its part, the Democratic Party is in such disarray and is so appallingly weak politically – weaker than either party has ever been in the history of the two parties – that but for the media there would be no effective political opposition to Donald Trump at all. Whereas a generation ago Tip O’Neill stood foursquare in opposition to President Ronald Reagan, no Democrat in either the House or the Senate is much more than an ankle-biting nuisance to President Donald Trump. (He suffers much more in Congress at the hands of his own party.)

Donald Trump’s real opposition comes from Anderson Cooper, Joe Scarborough, Chuck Todd, George Stephanopoulus and the rest of the glittering galaxy of smug, condescending, self-satisfied elite media liberals.

This has enormous implications. If it did nothing else, the 2016 presidential election revealed that the country now exists in two distinct iterations. Over the vast majority of the North American continent there exists the United States in pretty much its original, traditional form. People living there work (or at least try to work) at middle class jobs, educate their kids in public schools and go to church on Sundays. This portion of the country has found pursuing life as they have long understood it to be increasingly difficult and, as a result, broke with many of the accepted political norms last November and voted for Donald Trump.

In a comparatively small portion of the continent there exists the United States in its other iteration. This portion of the country exists mostly along the Amtrak corridor between New York and Washington and in the areas surrounding Los Angeles and San Francisco.

People living in these bi-coastal enclaves disproportionately have incomes far in excess of the U.S. average, educate their kids in expensive private schools and likely never attend church. This part of the country has a disproportionately large population as compared to its geographic size and holds a disproportionate share of the country’s wealth. Its existence as a second iteration of the United States is a comparatively recent development.

It is in this second, alternate U.S. iteration that you find the elite, liberal, so-called “mainstream” media.

By attempting to take down President Donald Trump, these media elites are seeking to assert themselves in place of the voters in the vast majority of the country as the final arbiters as to who is and who isn’t acceptable to serve as President of the United States.

Talk about a constitutional crisis.

    The media is disgusting. ALL of the main stream media outlets are reverting back to childhood it would seem when children would harass other kids they didn’t like or were jealous of. This lack of respect is something deeper that needs to be resolved. These people evidently do not respect themselves anymore than they clearly show disrespect for people they do not like. It makes you wonder just what kind of upbringing they had growing up. Were they TAUGHT this by their parents or did they learn it in our higher educational institutions? Journalism died many years ago, we now have jackals running around baring their teeth, snapping at everything and everybody who crosses their paths. It is a sorry state this world is in now and these media jackals are not even trying to improve anything by their constant mouthing…most of which they actually know nothing or very little about!!!!

    The media elites are political assassins that are using their “freedom of the press” as a cover for their terrorism by indoctrination to destroy the Constitutional Conservative foundations of the American culture that is under assault.

    Those on the left were brilliantly described once upon a time by William Safire as “nattering nabobs of negativism.” How true! All they know is pessimism.

    President Trump, in stark contrast is an eternal optimist who loves the United States of America. And optimism & love always trumps over pessimism & hate. ALWAYS.

  4. “Incomes far in excess of the USA average?”

    So we should REDISTRIBUTE that wealth?

    Isn’t wealth what your East Coaster Rush Limbaugh:
    a) boasts about daily; and
    b) calls (“The accumulation of wealth”) The American Dream?

    At least he’s more conspicuous church-goin’ than the better-educated.

    As for “the mainstream media” you eschew, do you offer your station not-mainstream? Are fringe media like Alex Jones more usefully informative than ABC News?

  5. Another outstanding column, Paul.

    We have indeed become two Americas. Our first America, the one we cherish and love, must be protected and preserved against those who hate all traditional America stands for.

    If the media jackals, as Ms. Montrose so aptly describes them, manage to pull Trump down (with Democrat and Republican help), traditional America may loose its greatest and last hope. Trump must win. I believe he will continue to deliver on his promises, but he can’t get it done without us. So long as he fights that good fight for us, we must every day and every hour be in that fight at his side.

    Paul,
    It is good to see that your article can expose the “religious left” that will worship the lying fake media no matter how extreme their hatred becomes visible (as you have articulated) while condemning a “truth teller” like Rush Limbaugh that daily and effectively skewers their propaganda machines.

  7. C M Solomon says:

    How many times have we heard the Left Wing Media FALSELY blame Conservative Media for every high visibility violent act that they conveniently twist to be a propaganda weapon against Conservatives? The Left’s score card for intolerance is legendary. It is matched only by the degree of “hate speech” they camouflage as “free speech” without logical substance or argument value. Their hatred for the American way of life as shared by the vast majority of Americans loyal to the Constitution has disastrous consequences when acted upon by their extremely demented followers who are persuaded by this mainstream hate speech that becomes legitimate by default. This virulent version of hatred has consequences as we have seen today, yet the Left takes absolutely NO responsibility for it.
