At Best, The Swamp Thinks You Are Really Dumb | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Tim Meads.

    The Swamp's reaction to Fox News's Tucker Carlson airing of less than two hours total of January 6 video footage proves that at best, the powers that be think you are really dumb and cannot handle doing your own research while weighing competing narratives and drawing your own conclusions about world events.

    And that is at best.

    At worst, and perhaps far more likely, the entire legacy media and leaders from both political parties are criticizing Carlson because his footage has changed the historic record and disrupted their narrative.

    Yet, for the purposes of this column, let us give folks like President Joe Biden and Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) the benefit of the doubt; Let us pretend that they really do care only about protecting democracy and the unvarnished truth. Let us also say that they did not use January 6 to tarnish former President Donald J. Trump and more than 74 million voters with all their might.

    Even if that were true, their reaction would still be insulting and belittling to the American people.

    As reported, Schumer called for Fox News to silence its eight o'clock host and called Carlson's first segment a "dangerous, unforgivable attempt to destabilize our democracy and rewrite the history of the worst attack on our constitution since the Civil War."

    He was not alone. McConnell also took umbrage with the news network for allowing one of its opinion commentators to go against the official government narrative.

    "It was a mistake, in my view, for Fox News to depict this in a way that's completely at variance with what our chief law enforcement official here at the Capitol thinks," he said. Indeed, the U.S. Capitol Police also slammed Carlson for his coverage.

    Biden also weighed in on Wednesday, in part saying, "How dare anyone diminish or deny the hell they went through? I stand with the Capitol Police."

    Again, treating these folks in the most Pollyannish way possible, it is evident that they think the common man is too stupid to intelligently watch Carlson's reporting, read the official January 6 Committee transcript, and scour the internet to make up their own opinions.

    Our elected leaders - and I use that term loosely - in Washington believe that information must first flow through government hands, be packaged in a way that advances The Swamp's interests, and then parceled out to approved "news sources" - again, using the word "news" loosely - where it will be regurgitated as propaganda.

    Carlson, obviously, does not fit that bill - which is why they want to stop any more J6 content from getting out to the public - which is all nonsense and patronizing.

    As left-wing radio host Jimmy Dore recently told best-selling author Michael Malice on a similar topic, "I don't need a person in the government or in Silicon Valley to pre-read my news for me and decide if I can read it or not."

    You don't need somebody to pre-read your news for you either. You are more than likely capable of reading many different sources and relying on the facts to ascertain the truth as well.

    January 6th isn't a one-off news story either. As readers well know, the lapdog media and their Beltway allies have consistently pushed the idea that there is only one accepted way to report on COVID-19 and its vaccine, the war in Ukraine, and other national news stories.

    That state-supported singular messaging always seems to make Washington, D.C. stronger. Any journalist - citizen or corporate - who dares think differently is deemed a threat who must be stopped. Any American who entertains that the government is lying, or not being completely forthright, is treated with contempt and derision.

    So, on one hand, The Swamp either thinks you are a gullible rube who must be protected against "disinformation" because you are too stupid to know any better; Or, they despise the average American - doubly so if they are a Trump supporter - and push propaganda around the clock while misleading the public for their own purposes.

    The truth is probably somewhere in the middle - which would mean The Swamp both hates you and thinks you are mindless.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
