Steve Bell on Donald Trumps reaction to pipe bombs – cartoon

center_img Share Rise up and fight the power. Facebook Facebook Share on Facebook I don’t know if violence is as American as apple pie, but in this case we are talking about political theater, not actual violence. Not one of the supposed “bombs” explodes, and their design looks right out of a Hollywood movie – a large clock taped to a pipe with wires sticking out. A time bomb sent by mail? Is there something more absurd than that? As for violence in America – the homicide rate in the US is 3 time lower than average in the Americas.

Horris Courtney Share Share on Facebook Twitter We look back on the media as some kind of dinosaur, but it always was, or is. Blaming MSM for every ill was always shortsighted. The internet age is an amazing thing, and fewer people get their news from papers than ever before. If you are hyperpartisan, the media sources available, across the net, will give you access to all the propaganda to reaffirm a view. Propaganda is much more nuanced now compared to 20 years ago. The press … is the best instrument for enlightening the mind of man, and improving him as a rational, moral, and social being. 56 57 Share on Facebook Report Facebook Fat chance – Turkey, Philippines, Hungary, India, soon Brazil…all have their fuckwits in charge … without adding Vlad to it.

You can read more about this at Reply Trump no, but then he has swung the other way and as a result is very popular in Tel Aviv. As for Yaxley-Lennon, I’m not so sure. The far right was unequivocally anti-semitic not that long ago – and not merely critical of Israel. It would not be surprising if Y-L had rubbed shoulders with some serious Jew-haters in his younger days. Jew-hating is no longer fashionable in far right circles, muslims now perform the function of the foreign group who don’t belong here. 26 Oct 2018 3:55 MereMortal | Pick Reason (optional) | Pick Report emilyadam Reply Facebook rachel follows Report 26 Oct 2018 4:18 Share Tintenfische q321gg8cla Sorry there was an error.

Thirty odd years ago newsrooms were resourced to carry out long investigations, sub editors and legal teams were resourced to fact check and ensure standards of verification were met and that meant readers could have a degree of faith in what was reported. The bloggers and internet news teams do not do that. The MSM does not do it as much as they did. That leaves space for propaganda and fake news.

They enjoy having the high school jock in charge, the posse of bozzos who swaggered down the corridors bullying the geeks and little guys and touching up the girls. Hollywood has always portrayed them as getting their comeuppance in the final reels and the geeks triumphing over the bullies. Trump has shown that in real life the bad guys can win the day and there will always be plenty of voters who haven’t left their high schools and their teenage yearning to join the hard goons in abusing the teachers, school rules and saying up yours to education itself.

Right wingers are particularly adept at trolling so called Social Justice Warriors online in video compilations mocking and owning them. For their part liberals are also very antagonistic towards Trump supporters, their demonstrations turning increasingly ugly and their ideological obsessions-Me Too, trans rights etc becoming increasingly authoritarian. Its not exactly the street brawling of the Weimar republic but we are getting close to it. The country is deeply divided and locked in a battle of mutual recrimination and insults. The centre has failed miserably.I used to think comparisons with Hitler were inaccurate but Trump tap directly into the shadow side of the American collective unconscious and this makes him extremely dangerous. Sadly I think it is going to get much worse. 4 … Twitter Share Close report comment form Facebook 1 Share on Twitter Report Facebook Facebooklast_img
