If progressives win, get ready for lots of manufactured news

On the eve of the Canadian election …

From Rebel Media: If progressives win, expect lots of manufactured news


Progressives in media aren’t actually “liars,” or “hypocrites,” as many traditionalists and conservatives claim. Such an accusation implies an understanding that facts and evidence are real in a way that PC chatter and narrative are not. The progressive doesn’t agree.

He honestly views reality as constructed, not confronted. He gives himself permission to move in and out and around as he wishes, and to force others to accommodate his moves. And woe betide us if we don’t. Whatever he feels right now IS reality, and much more than reality once he has the power to enforce his vision.

But, let’s face it, many people like the legacy media’s fake but accurate news. It confirms their view of the world, as surely as legends confirmed the medieval view of the world.

Increasingly, anyone under 60 who listens to “network news” or reads the big papers has made a moral decision to allow himself to be deceived, and must accept the consequences. Too bad if the rest of us will be governed in large part by these people’s choices. More.

  • It will be even worse.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I am seriously praying to the God of all creation to please spare us another Trudeau “era”. Even if it means Justin has to die, I mean, that would be OK with me. And millions more should they care to be as honest with themselves.

        I am terrified. I don’t know if prayer will do it. If yes, I will pray day and night, I will not sleep till Monday night.

        When I was a kid I was slow to realize that the young offenders act would have given me immunity if I had withdrawn my paper boy savings account of a thousand dollars, gotten on a train, with a gun, and gone to Ottawa to kill PET.
        It’s one of those if you could go back in time and kill Hitler regrets that I have had to live with for years.
        It’s seriously contributed to my addictions to cigarettes and alcohol.
        Only alcohol now.

          Justin would not have been born and we would not have this problem now.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            He was already.
            The only thing I could have stopped was the walk in the snow.

      Off topic – Would really like for you to promote the Anglo FB page :
      October 19 – Vote with your faces covered
      BNI has an excellent post on the subject, worth many laughs :

        Don’t do FB.
        Pick another venue.
        Zuckerberg is a self hating Jew.

        • CoolTolerance

          I know re Zuckerberg and I really dislike FB also. Thanks anyway for the reply. I appreciate. BTW, do exercise your democratic right and vote with your face covered, it is legal. Cheers.

            Sorely tempted.
            I vote with my wife in every election.
            I’ve never been one for the grand gesture.
            If I was twenty or twenty five I would.
            I’m different from my Dad.
            He once wrote a cheque to his lawyer on a maxipad because even though it was cheaper to pay a false fee he could at least extract some embarrassment from him.
            The lawyer cashed it.

            There are photos of elderly people voting with their faces covered. Some are saying how good they felt, they never thought they would have the courage to do it but they did and are proud of themselves.
            Also, some people in wheelchairs with covered faces.
            It’s so easy to vote multiple times. You go first time dressed normally with I.D. and then go back with face covered, different clothes and a friend’s I.D. and voter card (friend that will not be voting).
            This is why the law must be changed.

  • But if progressives can “manufacture” facts then they’re not facts. The old adage: “you’re entitled to your own opinions; you’re not entitled to you’re own facts”.

    This is very much a conflict between conservatives with a libertarian bent and progressives with a fascist bent. A lot of authors seem to pretend that it’s not — “nothing at all to do with Left vs. Right — left and right are basically the same”. B.S. That would only be true if the Left wasn’t fascist — i.e. the use of FORCE to make everyone think the same as them.

      Left and Right were constructs of totalitarians fighting against each other.
      Stalin was on the Left and Hitler was on the Right.
      Hitler broke his nonaggression treaty with Stalin because he felt that one of them had to be king of the hill.
      Left and Right has been bastardized today and does not mean what it is supposed to mean.
      We are neither left nor right.
      We are freedom loving constitutional monarchists.
      Well, I am, anyway.

      • Good point. Both are Socialists as well.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Buddy at work calls himself a socialist.
          I told him he’s not a socialist.
          He just thinks he is.
          And if he is then he’s a communist because that is what socialism really is.

          • Few people realize that. The fact is according to Marxist theory, “Socialism” is actually the end game of the Communist agenda — it’s the state of utopia that we supposedly reach after the “dictatorship of the proletariat” has finally accomplished its goal. By definition (Marx’s not mine) you must first be a Communist to become a Socialist.

    I have a hard time seeing how “news” reporting could get worse. As a senior I can say that this leftist spin and leftist propaganda in lieu of news reporting has been going on for a very long time, in Canada at least. That is why long ago I ceased watching, listening to or reading their propaganda. Just knowing the topic or subject matter is enough to know exactly what to expect.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Space in Canadian MSM for actual “news” has been declining for years, and has been near ZERO for about a decade now, from what I can tell.

    That’s a great article. Welcome to Denyse!
