The Peasants Are Revolting – Disconnected Political Institutions Meet Their Monster Voters…
To say the last 24 hours have been historic could most certainly be an understatement. However, we can be certain a wounded global media will put every possible liberal, progressive, multicultural and socialist voice onto television and into print to push back against the visible rise of a growing nationalist sentiment.
The representative image of the sentiment behind the U.K. LEAVE campaign exists in the United States in the presidential candidate Donald Trump. Trump supporters are essentially anti-globalists, much like the U.K. nationalists were/are anti-European Union.
In an effort to retain relevance, the mainstream corporate media is forced to “gaslight” their audience with increasingly transparent falsehoods, manipulation, willful blindness and intentional deception. However, there are ongoing signs surfacing which show the scope of the American common sense electorate.
There simply are more of us than them and there’s only so much the media can continue to do to try and hide that reality. In addition we are tuned in to the schemes and techniques used to manufacture the Potemkin village they seek to build around us.
