Trump Is What Happens When You Nominate A Cheater and Live In An Echo Chamber—Please Learn From This

Did you read Wikileaks?

Well, you should have.

The “conspiracies” were true, and the mainstream media lied to you to about everything.

Wikileaks was not Russian propaganda, it was the news.

Wikileaks has a 10-year record of never releasing a single falsified document, and is not connected to Russia. Everything they released were the actual e-mails of Hillary Clinton and her campaign staff. You had the opportunity to look through a window into the Hillary Clinton campaign, but you didn’t.

By ignoring the leaks, you ignored reality.

By not listening to your fellow Americans, and accusing them of being “conspiracy theorists” and trusting the corporate media, you ignored reality. By only following other liberals on social media, and only reading liberal or corporate news, once again ignoring reality. When Hillary Clinton was caught rigging the primary against Bernie Sanders, and Democrats nominated her anyway they ignored reality.

Everyone was simply insulating themselves within their own echo chamber ignoring anything outside their bubble.

The Media Lied To Us About EVERYTHING

If you’ve been following my Twitter or Facebook account during this 2016 election you probably would have thought I was a Trump supporter. However, I am a former registered Democrat, a Bernie supporter, and consider myself a progressive libertarian. This was the first election I ended up voting 3rd party, but my second choice was Trump. I simply could not vote for Hillary Clinton because of her mishandling of classified information, and stealing the nomination from the people’s choice Bernie Sanders.

Hillary never should have been nominated in the first place. The first clue was when she was under FBI investigation, and the second clue was when she rigged the primary elections.

In an attempt to inform my friends, family, and followers I posted dozens if not hundreds of Wikileaks e-mails, and tweeted alt-right news just as much as I did liberal news. I did this because most of my followers are liberals, and I realized they were all living in an echo chamber on social media where they were not being exposed to differing opinions or news. I was mostly rejected by liberals for doing this, they didn’t understand why I was sharing things that made them uncomfortable, but now they know why. Ironically, I got far more support from Trump supporters for trying to tell Democrats the truth. I wasn’t expecting that.

I took it upon myself to understand Trump, and his supporters. What I found was millions of great Americans who had been disenfranchised, normal people like you and I, who did not recover from the Great Recession. They’re pissed off about Obama Care, endless wars, trade deals that have killed jobs, higher taxes, a rigged economy–and, they are not wrong.

Had Democrats taken the concerns of average American seriously, especially the concerns of Millennials, they would have quickly realized Hillary Clinton was not the right nominee for the Democratic party in 2016.

Bernie Sanders Would Have Beat Trump

I 100% believe Bernie Sanders could have created a political revolution to beat Trump, but instead we’re getting Trump’s revolution.

The reason Hillary Clinton did not win this election is because she never should have been nominated in the first place. There was a better choice.

Democrats let Hillary hijack the DNC, and use her corporate money to push everyone around. Meanwhile, she used Correct The Record to poison the minds of people online into isolating themselves with paid Hillary trolls. Had Democrats paid attention to the leaks they would have seen the mountain of evidence that told the world that Hillary rigged the primaries against Bernie Sanders, and was illegally coordinating with Super PACs like CTR. She should have been disqualified. The evidence is on Wikileaks.org.

Meanwhile, the media, and social media kept everyone ignorant and isolated from differing opinions. They lied to us, manipulated us, and made us think the rest of the country agreed with us, when they didn’t. They used their position of authority to mislead us into believing in a false reality—in propaganda.

This is the problem with America today, the technology that was supposed to bring us together actually isolated us into echo chambers and drove us further apart.

Getting the news from just your friends is a logical fallacy, you need to know your enemies, and realize they’re not much different from yourself.

There Is Good News

While you weren’t paying attention, Trump is actually a former Democrat. If you study his actual values he has far more in common with traditional moderate or liberal values than he does a traditional conservative. In fact, Trump may even be more liberal than Hillary Clinton on several issues.

The media prevented any kind of discussion on values, and instead focused on rhetoric and propaganda. So most Americans who immediately defaulted to what the media and Clinton campaign told them never took the time to actually get to know Donald Trump. They just watched the jokes on SNL, and corporate media blindly without considering other sources. While I’m still unsure about Trump myself, we at least know politically he’s actually a New York Democrat in Republican clothing (this is why the Republican establishment rejected him).

You also need to consider Donald Trump just overthrew a group of political elites who have been ruling this country for decades. He just beat the political establishment singlehandedly. No matter what you think about him personally, he just accomplished something historic to become our President.

At the end of the day, this is an opportunity to learn and grow and consider another world view. This is a wakeup call to get out of safe spaces, politically correct thinking, shatter echo chambers, and challenge yourself to consider the other side of the fence. This is an opportunity to reach out and truly learn to understand each other.

We all have to come together to solve any real problems with our country in the next 4-years. This election was a lesson to consider all ideas equally, regardless of established authority.

We need to come together and move forward together.

  • Very well written. Now you have the simple task of opening minds that reside in distant Galaxies.

  • st

    like a libtard can read more that a 4 line text :eek:

  • kom

    TRUMP IS who the establishment wanted to win
    Your vote IS your consent to be governed and unfortunately more people than ever gave their consent to be governed by a totally corrupt government
    It still needs to be rebuilt from the ground up
    He was the power elites choice the entire time
    You’ve been had

    • Yep. One guy gets it.

      • Hillary will be back in 4 years to turn the country on its head ! The Donald will alienate most of the population in the mean time. We are still in a slow motion train wreck and the tracks have already been laid. We can only hope that more people will awaken to this nightmare we call the American dream ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nd0gQZG-LDU

        • I’ll give you even odds Hillary will be drooling on herself, or dead in 4 years. Trump will reverse at least some of the damage Obozo has done, and possibly slow down the decay of America.

  • All I can think about is 2 1/2 months and we can get rid of the 8 year miserable ugly lying nightmare. Next we have to hold Trump to his words….hold him accountable. Push him to destroy executive orders along with obcare.

  • Trump is incredibly flawed. But he is preferable to yet another liar, felon, and corrupt politician in the W.H. That is why he won.

    • Mr. Donald J. Trump (although festooned with some liberal, Marxist, socialistic ideology from days as a Dummycrat) is far better qualified & able to perform duties of President of the United States than the present queer, Satan worshiping, fraud born in Kenya; B.H.O.. We can only pray that Mr. Trump can do all that is required to prevent B.H.O., transvestite Michele Obama, felons Bill & Hillary Clinton, & John Kerry from escaping the USA in moving to nations with no extradition treaties.

  • A good read!
    And well said.
    :smile:

  • A very interesting comment. As an Australian, living far distant from the US but very aware of much of the Washington crap, I feel that this election may lead to the breaking of the neocon grip on the US government, and a cessation of the bastardry being imposed on sovereign nations around the world. Hopefully Trump will survive, he must be protected from the harm that befell JFK; he must live to do what he set out to do.

    Unfortunately, too many Americans live in the bubble of delusion; the dumbing-down of the people does not help them to see past the misinformation peddled by MSM, but hopefully time will burst the bubble and sanity will reign.

    I hope Trump can rein in some of the rogue elements among the CIA, FBI and other government organisations.

  • HAHAHAHAHA too bad crazy bernie wasn’t really running the consament con man WOW!!
