A few days ago, former President Barack Obama announced that “there’s no actual evidence that there was anything illegal or fraudulent taking place.” That the former president is lying is obvious: Obama cannot be unaware of the evidence, from multiple whistleblower reports, to the multistate discovery of uncounted, wrongly counted, and ballots counted multiple times, to the huge vote discrepancies down the ticket.
None of the MSM challenge his lie. Why? Those media platforms that make up the MSM have embraced lies and deceptions as a means to political power. In the past four years, we witnessed their obsession with the “truth” of Russian interference in the 2016 election, and even more pointedly, the public crucifixion of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
One of the persistent and popular lies is the comparison of President Trump and his supporters to Hitler and the Nazis. It’s one thing for a hysterical CNN “reporter” to make this comparison, and quite another when it’s repeated by figures such as the highly honored writer Joyce Carol Oates. Her November 19 tweet asserted: “For many pro-T***p Americans, the pandemic is like the Holocaust to many Germans: they knew what was happening but adjusted to living with it in indifference or, in some cases, profiting from it. Only if affected personally do people seem to care.”
