Hearing so many in right-world harrumph in unison about the new propaganda war is heartening. I guess. From Jim Eagle laws in Georgia to pay-for-play in Florida to nothing-to-see-here in NY nursing homes, it’s clear that many on the right have decided that it’s time to think about getting out of bed to clean house a bit.
You see, the media has just started a 24/7 propaganda campaign acting as an arm of the progressive political movement. That’s right, this new development is suddenly more dangerous than the baseline of regular old bias we’ve been familiar with for so many decades. Because now a decidedly ordinary and non-racist voter reform law is being vilified unfairly to the tune of 30-some percent disapproval (more than enough, apparently to get major corporations to declare their fealty publicly and with their bottom lines on the line).
Just think how popular this would be without the constant hysterical propaganda, then MLB wouldn’t have had to burn so much customer goodwill. This new discovery of a propaganda campaign in the open and in overdrive is surprising. Hold on, I’m experiencing some big-league deja vu. Let me recover on my sofa for a moment before I continue. Ok, that’s better…. nope deja vu still going. Maybe I’d just better get used to it.
I’m glad that our guys are finally mostly awake and stretching so that at any moment now they will jump out of bed and spring into action. Any time now, just after they rub their eyes a little longer maybe. I’m looking forward to all of those productive Senate Committee Hearings and wicked Fox rants from the latest young US Representative star. Perhaps we’ll see some well-done fundraising materials too. Ooh, and I hope they don’t forget the killer appearances on the Sunday shows so they can be interviewed by someone like George Stephanopoulos (don’t I know him somehow from his time before becoming a journal— no, sorry I can’t finish that without guffawing).
Ben Shapiro, still wrong about counter boycotts and making them feel their complicity where it hurts, is at least trying to put up by starting alternatives to the woke corporations. Good luck, Ben. Can’t wait to fly your airline, drink your cola, watch your baseball league, open a checking account at your bank, and use your internet. Mitch McConnell is issuing strongly worded warnings to corporations to butt out of policy. Watch out Delta – Mitch is going to frown in your direction. Briefly. No, seriously, watch out or you might miss his facial rebuke.
Anyway, I’m glad that the propaganda is apparent and new. There’s no telling what might have happened if this propaganda campaign had been going on and we didn’t do anything to counter it, or, God forbid, sometimes join it. \Shudder\Published in
