The Paul Pelosi Attack And The Political Divide
In this article, I will share one blogger's opinion on the reporting of the Paul Pelosi attack footage and how slanted both the left and right news outlets are.
The Left Exposed Their Agenda, Once Again
“This attack is terrifying and the direct result of toxic right-wing rhetoric.”
Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco)
Why does the media believe they must jump to conclusions? Does anyone remember what was being insinuated immediately after the Paul Pelosi attack? They were alluding to the attacker as a Trump supporter. An angry right-winged, Trump-loving, January 6th-supporting maniac.
❝Where's Nancy?❞ - Idiot In Chief, Joe Biden Pushes The False Narrative
Even Brandon instigated the right-wing nutjob narrative about the Paul Pelosi attack with his "where's Nancy" BS.
The mainstream news quickly reported conspiracies about the Paul Pelosi attack and then allowed it to quietly die in the background once their right-winged whacko narrative didn't pan out.
Typical mainstream media rhetoric.
Where were the questions? The investigations? To be fair, a few news organizations took legal action to force the release of the Paul Pelosi attack videos and the 911 call, including The New York Times. That's a far cry from a real investigation, but it is something.
The Right Was Wrong - As Usual
The right was just as bad. They had that old man, Pelosi, doing gay acts because he was in his underwear? Dude, it was in the middle of the night. You should see what I wear to bed.
The Glass Blown In Theory. Idiots.
What about everyone on the right jumping in on the “glass was blown out, not kicked in theory.” Based on a photo that, for some reason, no one could see, that glass was all over the place - inside and out.
The security video shows David DePape awkwardly beating the glass out of the door with repeated downward strikes. That's consistent with what we're seeing from the photo.
But the agenda-driven and hateful people you likely listen to and follow would have you believe that old man Paul Pelosi staged the break-in because he was doing the gay nasty or buying drugs.
Yet, that narrative is still part of the right-wing arsenal of lies. Why?
You can see that the glass is consistent with the way this moron is beating in the glass. It's like watching a monkey screw a football. We're not dealing with a professional here.
Why Can't Everyone Just Get Along?
Look. Eventually, both sides need to learn to live as a republic before we lose our republic. This childish back and forth, canceling each other out, lies, and omissions have caused mistrust in both the media and the leadership to the likes this country has ever experienced.
No Trust. Trust And Faith In The News Are Dead.
One of the biggest gripes I've heard since early 2019 is there's no truthful, unbiased news reporting. News reports from ALL media outlets are either skewed to support a narrative, or details are left out if the incident isn't completely ignored.
It's Social Media And Alt News Too
The same holds for social media, blogs, and YouTube personalities. As a country, we in the U.S. are more divided than ever, and it's slap you in the face blatant in the mainstream press.
I signed up with several alternative social media apps, including Gettr, Parler, Discord, and MeWe. These platforms need a new word to be invented to describe the caliber of people trashing up the net there. My go-to phrase, “cesspool,” just can't do this crowd justice.
The distrust in the media has sent folks wanting honest reporting to alternative sites, videos, and blogs. But, unfortunately, those resources are just as guilty, turning out garbage, conspiracies, and even outright lies to support the agenda they believe.
Tim Pool STILL Says It's A Drug Deal Gone Wrong. What?
The Paul Pelosi attack, as reported by Tim Pool, is the perfect example. Tim Pool continually goes out of his way, ad nauseam, to say he doesn't do conspiracies or jump to conclusions.
What was Tim Pool's conclusion of the Paul Pelosi attack? Drug deal gone wrong! Wow. What about the security camera video that shows the break-in by David DePape (embedded above)? Was that fake news now?
This idiocy happens when they've fallen into the left or right cesspool. They can't see or think straight anymore, and their hatred for the opposing side now drives their belief, opinion, and agenda.
Don't get me wrong, I don't hate Tim Pool, I think he's built a very successful brand, and I know he worked his tail off to get there. And truthfully, I've fallen into the same cesspool, which is one reason I rebranded as The Opinion Blog. I'm not in the business of reporting, just offering my opinion on topics I have an interest.
We have to be a little more responsible and not allow personal hatred to blind our ability to recognize truth and reality.
If we're in the business of reporting, we need to report the truth, not spin a tail that forces the dots into a story we want others to believe.
