The election of Donald Trump will, in all likelihood, be remembered as a turning point in global history – not just the history of the United States.
The sheer improbability of his electoral annihilation of Hillary Clinton is enough to send heads spinning in the world of political punditry, but the massive successes of his unconventional presidency have many around the world wondering where their Trump could be hiding?
On the other hand, however, it sent the liberal community into a tailspin of depression, rejection, anger, and blame.
How on earth could Hillary Clinton not be President, many of them wondered aloud. It seemed to make no sense to the devastated left, who looked for any scapegoat that they could possibly find. The first victim of their misguided rage was Russia, whom they believed may have influenced the election unfairly.
The left’s version of the Russia nonsense evolved several times over the course of the last year, and is still evolving to this day. During the aftermath of the election, Russia was alleged to have made an attempt to hack electoral data centers. Then, Russia had supposedly blackmailed Donald Trump with notes from the Muscovite prostitutes that he allegedly visits.
The biggest lie of all, however, was the left’s insinuation that the Russians had infiltrated the conservative news media and planted stories that caused Trump’s electoral landslide. Now, the left had not only vilified the Russian government, (which isn’t really all that difficult to do, anyway), but they had also painted a target on the backs of those of us in the free press. The stripes of their neo-Fascist tiger were beginning to show with this declaration, that aimed to delegitimize at least half of the news sources in the nation.
Luckily for the United States, the American people are a keen and observant people who understand the value of studying their history. Recognizing this bygone tactic as rising from the ashes of the Reichstag fire of 1933, President Trump and the republican media lashed back at the liberal fallacy, quickly exposing the true nature of corporate media giants such as CNN and MSNBC.
Now, liberal French President Emmanuel Macron is finding himself concerned for the fate of his own leftist media cabal, and is taking decisive action to prevent it.
“French President Emmanuel Macron will propose new rules cracking down on fake news during elections this year, he said in an annual speech to the press today.
“’When fake news are spread, it will be possible to go to a judge … and if appropriate have content taken down, user accounts deleted and ultimately websites blocked,’ Macron said.
“’Platforms will have more transparency obligations regarding sponsored content to make public the identity of sponsors and of those who control them, but also limits on the amounts that can be used to sponsor this content.’”
This is, without a doubt, an affront to the concepts of free speech that should be the cornerstone of any worthy democracy.
By disallowing the ideologies and opinions of your political opponents to be disseminated freely among the voters, you have corrupted the entire democratic process. Now, Macron finds himself blindly leading the French people into a neo-Fascist, hive-minded regime for Angela Merkel and the European Union to trample upon.
