I’ve been using the term #LyingPress a lot lately in the hope that it would start to catch fire with Trump’s supporters:
“After the rally finished, one man approached the press pen and shouted insults, accusing the media of being in the tank for the Clintons and being “bought and paid for.” Another man, wearing a Make America Great Again hat and holding a sign with the same slogan, walked up beside him and began yelling at the press that we were “lügenpresse,” adding that the phrase means “lying press” in German. The first man started shouting it too, then turned to the second and made a self-deprecating remark about not pronouncing it right. …
The website Occidental Dissent, one of the nodes of alt-right online commentary, frequently uses the term, and the #lugenpresse hashtag on Twitter is fairly active and largely used by alt-right Twitter accounts …
And yes, it was PEGIDA in Germany which repopularized the term:

My own recent experience with The Economist was partly the inspiration:

“FIRST, an apology, or rather a regret: The Economist would prefer not to advertise the rantings of racists and cranks. Unfortunately, and somewhat astonishingly, the Alt-Right—the misleading name for a ragtag but consistently repulsive movement that hitherto has flourished only on the internet—has insinuated itself, unignorably, into American politics. That grim achievement points to the reverse sway now held by the margins, of both ideology and the media, over the mainstream. It also reflects the indiscriminate cynicism of Donald Trump’s campaign. …”
Unquestionably, however, Mr Trump has bestowed on this excrescence a scarcely dreamed-of prominence. As Hillary Clinton recently lamented, no previous major-party nominee has given America’s paranoid fringe a “national megaphone”. Many on the Alt-Right loved that speech: “it was great,” says Mr Griffin. “She positioned us as the real opposition.” Because of Mr Trump, the Alt-Right thinks it is on the verge of entering American politics as an equal-terms participant. “He is a bulldozer who is destroying our traditional enemy,” says Mr Griffin. Mr Trump may not be Alt-Right himself, but “he doesn’t have to be to advance our cause.”
Well then, I would say it is fair to note that the “excrescence” known as The Economist is the lying Jewish mouthpiece of Lynn Forester de Rothschild who has been a major financial contributor to all of the Bill and Hillary Clinton campaigns. Last time I heard anything about Lynn Forester de Rothschild, she was hosting $100K a plate lamb dinners for Hillary at her oceanfront Martha’s Vineyard mansion:
“Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a backer of Democrats and a friend of the Clintons’, made sure attendees did not grill Mrs. Clinton at the $100,000-per-couple lamb dinner Mrs. Forester de Rothschild hosted under a tent on the lawn of her oceanfront Martha’s Vineyard mansion.
“I said, ‘Let’s make it a nice night for her and show her our love,’” Mrs. Forester de Rothschild said. …”
Has anyone else looked into this?
It’s like Lynn Forester de Rothschild is the epitome of everything Trump was talking about in his speech about the neo-liberal globalist conspiracy. Just glancing through her biography, you have a major Clinton Foundation donor who divides her time between New York and London and her oceanfront palace in Martha’s Vineyard who controls The Economist magazine who backed John McCain in 2008 and whose tentacles stretch deep into British finance, Wall Street and even the Bilderbergs (!!!)
If the Alt-Right is reviving Nazi-era terminology about the #LyingPress, maybe it is an act of self-defense against their Weimar-era degeneracy, corruption and warmongering?
Note: Personally, I used to laugh at the nutters who warned about dark conspiracies by the “Rothschilds,” but now after seeing all this I am starting to wonder if they might have been on to something all along. It is highly disturbing to see the same #LyingPress which led us into Iraq now agitating to embroil us in World War III against Russia.
