Here is the media’s uniform misrepresentation of a nonevent—“the white supremacist insurrection” at the Capitol:

“Years of white supremacy threats culminated in Capitol riots,” Associated Press, January 14, 2021

“White supremacist extremists are the nation’s deadliest terror threat,” Los Angeles Times, January 16, 2021

“The Capitol attack was White supremacy, plain and simple,” CNN, January 10, 2021

“White Riot,” New York Times, January 13, 2021

“The seditionists made clear what their attack was about: White supremacy,” Washington Post, January 15, 2021

“What the Capitol Insurgency Reveals about White Supremacy and Law Enforcement,” Brookings Institution, January 12, 2021

“The Capitol Riot Was an Attack on Multiracial Democracy,” Atlantic, January 7, 2021.

“Insurrection Day: When White Supremacist Terror Came to the US Capitol,” Guardian, January 9, 2021.

When the media lies like this, the media normalizes deceit, and the word “liar” loses its sting. Lying becomes part of the New Normal.

When government lies as well—Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Assyd’s use of chemical weapons, Iranian nukes, Russian invasions, Russiagate—lying becomes ubiquitous.  Truth becomes so discordant that truth is discarded.  

Truth-tellers become dissident “conspiracy theorists” who are guilty of trying to shake the population’s confidence in the ruling lies.  They are censored, and if they persist they risk becoming labeled “domestic terrorists” and “enemies of democracy.”  Orwell’s 1984 is our reality.

Newspeak is used to restrict grammar and limit vocabulary in order to diminish the range of thought and communication. Thus, gender terms become impermissible, and language cannot be used to identify gender. The Democrat House has even passed House rules to this effect. A granddaughter is a grand-sibling, a stepbrother is a step-sibling, terms that obviously convey far less information. 

The feminization of university life and society in general results in feelings replacing reason, bringing an end to independent thought, which is confrontational.  “Tone” becomes more important than content.  With math and physics demonized as tools of white racism, society is on its way back to the dark ages.  (See  https://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/blog/an-unleashed-feminine-mystique-is-destroying-higher-education/ )

These facts of our time make this website important to those who value truth and wish to live a life outside The Matrix.  For this reason, readers should support this website.
