Donald Trump’s startling and explosive victory has not only shaken America’s oligarchy to its core, it’s also sending shock waves across Europe and scaring the top hats off plutocrats and their tame politicians.
The great Mark Twain wrote early in the 20thcentury: ‘if you don’t read newspapers you are uninformed. But if you do read them, you are misinformed.’ Amen.
As with the 2003 war in Iraq, the US media totally dropped its mask of phony impartiality and became a cheerleader for the Clintons and their financial backers.
Media was clearly revealed as a propaganda organ for the ruling elite. No wonder its disgusted clients are decamping to online sources or just ignoring the biased media.
Amazingly, working class men and women rose up and overthrew the oligarchy, led by the corporate media and the self-enriching, war-promoting Clinton dynasty and its Davos friends. There was plenty of anguish among leftist groups and weepy young women, but America breathed a gigantic sigh of relief.
So did the stock market. So did ordinary white Americans royally fed up with the elite’s promotion of ‘diversity,’ which they believe is a euphemism for mixing races, pushing junk popular culture, and advocating homosexuality, lesbianism, and bisexuality.
Across the Atlantic, political nerves were just as tense. Three major votes will be held in the coming 10 months in France, Germany, and Italy, Europe’s economic, political and cultural core. The old order is scared to death by Trump’s crushing victory.
