The mainstream media and popular culture have long been conspiring to normalize the violent end of the Trump presidency.
This errant cultural nonsense began even before Donald Trump was considered a possibility for the office of President in barrooms and bedrooms, with horrifically misaligned Americans making snarky comments to their friends and loved ones. We have all heard at least one person in our inner circle mutter something along the lines of “there’s no way he makes it through his first term”, and the sentiment will go down in history as one of the most vile and vitriolic colloquial ideas that was allowed to be uttered.
Then, due to this normalization, celebrities got in on the act. Kathy Griffin’s now-infamous beheading photo shoot and Snoop Dogg’s double-whammy of anti-Trump mock violence are merely the tips of the societal iceberg.
And while many on the left believe that there’s little or no harm to the ideological death of a President that they oppose, real damage has come from this line of thinking. Not only did a young man at a Trump campaign rally in Las Vegas attempt to wrestle a gun away from a police officer in an attempt to murder then-candidate Donald Trump, but James T. Hodgkinson’s shooting spree aimed at a baseball field chock-full of GOP congressmen occurred in such proximity to the Griffin stunt that the connections cannot be ignored.
Now, one Showtime program is pushing the envelope even further, and involving their facsimile of one of the fringe media’s most well-known figures.
“Former CIA agent Mathison (Claire Danes) is back in the first trailer for Showtime’s Homeland season 7, which depicts the show’s heroes and villains alike struggling against an overreaching and civil rights-abusing president.
“The upcoming season of the espionage thriller has a rogue Mathison trying to take down criminals in the government under the tyrannical administration of President Keene (Elizabeth Marvel), who has arrested 200 members of the intelligence community after barely surviving an assassination plot in the season 6 finale.
“Also targeting Keene: The show’s Alex Jones-like conspiracy character Brett O’Keefe (Jake Weber) who was first introduced last season. ‘The founding fathers foresaw the dark day when we would face a president like her,’ warns O’Keefe as he aims a pistol at a poster of the president’s face. ‘Anyone who takes a stand for what they believe, people are gonna say they’re crazy. They’ve been calling me that for years.’”
This horrendous and violent propaganda has shown no sign of diffusing itself over the course of Trump’s first year in office either, with multi-million dollar productions such as Homeland just now getting in on the act.
President Trump, who won the 2016 general contest in an electoral landslide, may very well be the first President of the era of the radical left, but in no way is that an excuse for the behavior of the cretinous content creators who continue to virtually murder him.
