The threat of truth 2

In this video, issued shortly before the inauguration of President Trump, the admirable Pat Condell talks about those who fear the truth – in particular the truth about Islamic aggression – and how Donald Trump “came along with a great big bucket of honesty”:

We agree with almost all he says. Only, we don’t think that Donald Trump’s “willingness to tell the truth” is “all he’s got going for him”, as Pat Condell suggests may be the case, at least in the minds of some who support him. We think Donald Trump has an understanding of how a free, capitalist society works or should work, and how nation-states are good and need well-guarded borders; and that he will keep America the strongest nation-state in the world for its own good and the good of the world.

    “We think Donald Trump has an understanding of how a free, capitalist society works or should work, and how nation-states are good and need well-guarded borders; and that he will keep America the strongest nation-state in the world for its own good and the good of the world.”

    Well done. For evidence we have a stock market that is setting new records. Our new president is job creator and that’s a good thing.

    Yes, we’re tired of being told what to think by the media. After the last White House press conference, in which Trump bashed the press for their dishonesty, they whined that he wasn’t allowing them to “ask the tough questions”.
    Right – as if they’ve done that in the last eight years.
    Sorry, media, your “Speak Truth to Power” card expired a long time ago, along with your credibility, while you were busy narrating the Obama Utopia fake news fairytale.
