America is a strange nation. Millions of our nation’s people choose to accept “alternative facts,” and ignore the truth. Sadly ‘the right thing’ is frequently ignored as television ‘celebrities’ use emotional warfare which reinforces the deviant and immoral beliefs of its audience.
In 1996 Media mogul Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes founded FOX Noise. The two men created an institution which would convey their right wing beliefs to an audience eager to hear them. It quickly became a Republican propaganda machine.
Ailes had one commandment; ratings at all cost. He hired fake-journalists who were instructed to say anything; true or false; which would increase the emotional level of its audience. The idea was to make money; and it worked. FOX became the highest rated fake-news network on television.
FOX’ number one personality was Bill O’Reilly; until yesterday.
O’Reilly is out of a job. He doesn’t need the money; he was paid millions of dollars a year for over 20 years to tell lies and divide our nation’s people. But the situation is an personal embarrassment for the network’s former biggest ‘star.’
In 2011, O’Reilly settled a sexual harassment suit for a reported nine-million dollars. In 2015 he lost custody of his children. Now multiple lawsuits including allegations of sexual harassment and
racism have forced his release from FOX.
He joins former friend and FOX Noise President Roger Ailes, who was removed based on similar complaints. Women who are or were previously employed by FOX reported that the network had become a ‘good old boy’s’ club where its success allowed the men to believe that they could do anything they wished without repercussions.
Years ago it was confirmed that O’Reilly’s journalistic success, and therefore the success of his books, was based on lies and half truths. Management ignored the facts and O’Reilly remained on the fake-news network. Profit before people; the right wing mantra.
Your illegitimate president has a record as vile as his friends; Ailes and O’Reilly. When his debauched beliefs and self-proclaimed actions were revealed in 2016, there was immediate outrage by women, men, and even some Republican politicians. The television media quickly ceased their reporting of the facts.
Millions of voters, including ‘women in name only,’ cast their ballots for the immoral crotch-grabbing con-man.
It appears to me that Trump should receive the same treatment as his close friends who are also sexual predators. He should be fired.
There are dozens of reasons why Trump never should have been gifted the presidency; he’s proving most of them true every day. For me it has always been his immoral beliefs and behavior; I will never accept him as a president because I have no respect for him as a man. Every intelligent man and woman in America is fully aware that he is a white supremacist, a bigot, a sexist, and an ignorant man who should not be allowed to live in our nation’s most revered residence.
I remained stunned that the American people allowed such a vile and unqualified man to become the leader of our nation. His job performance receives a grade of “F,” as his approval ratings remain the lowest in history for a president in his first one hundred days.
Trump should be on the street with two other dirty, old, white men.
