Check out what passes for prime time network television these days (video, below).
CBS, proud but dying member of America’s Alphabet Network Club, is airing Madam Secretary, a nauseating look at the delusional paranoia that liberals share and attempt to convince the rest of the world is reality.
The November 10 episode was all about how white nationalists are dominating a YouTube-like social media site by manipulating its algorithms to prevent any content but what they, the left, consider conservative, crazy, racist videos.
There’s that term again, “white nationalist,” which I first recall hearing from the lips of Barack Hussein, circa the Charlottesville riot. It is now a part of the liberal lexicon and a front burner talking point, driving the narrative that “white nationist” is synonymous with “white supremacist,” which their brain-dead zombie followers now believe, and that it is OK to censor conservatives because it is for the greater good.
Forget that “nationalist” is actually, by definition, synonymous with “patriot.” Thus, a “white nationalist” is any patriot who happens to be white. THAT is who the left really hates – patriots, especially white patriots, like President Trump.
The left has created the narrative that white patriots are nothing more than white supremacists, a lie that millions of their followers now believe. It no longer takes a racist act to be labeled a racist. The fact that one loves America is all the proof the left needs because in Liberalville, “patriot” is synonymous with “racist” and “white supremacist.” Even black patriots are now being labeled white nationalists by the left. Not kidding!
Thankfully, this is Madam Secretary’s final season. I reckon its seventeen mouthbreathing viewers have moved on to more fun and productive pursuits, like pulling the wings off of flies and marketing tin foil hats on Amazon.
CBS’s Madam Secretary has been quite bold in its final season. First, of course, it starts out with its Hillary Clinton-like female president. Then, it follows up by praising reporters as fighting “the good fight.” Now, it goes one step further in promoting censorship out of fear of causing white nationalism.
The November 10 episode “Deepfake” concerns a video portraying President Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) and her husband Henry (Tim Daly) insulting the South Korean president. It’s fake, of course, but that doesn’t stop the South Korean president from beginning to pull out on a trade deal from the bad press. Apparently, all it takes to bring down a deal is for fake news to be shared by their Alex Jones parody Shawn Olson (Matt Olson) on his Project Falanx channel.
This leads to a discussion about forcing the platform Yourevid (the YouTube stand-in) to take down the video. Chelsea Weldon (Sharon Washington), the CEO of Yourevid, defers to the First Amendment stating, “Our policy is the same as our Founding Fathers: Let the people think for themselves and trust that good speech will fight bad speech.” Elizabeth’s counselor Mike (Kevin Rahm) negatively responds, “Our Founding Fathers had no idea there’d be so many idiots.”
Check out this insane dialogue from the stars of Madam Secretary….
Henry: What’s going on? There another video?
Elizabeth: No. But once I searched for it on Yourevid, the algorithm started autoplaying all of these other paranoid videos.
Henry: Yeah. Illuminati, flat-earthers. All the classics.
Elizabeth: Well, it starts with the crazy Project Falanx stuff, which brings in the people who are already suspicious of big institutions, and then… It starts validating all of their views, playing one video after another. And somehow, it all leads to white nationalism.
Henry: The pot of gold at the end of the extremist rainbow.
Elizabeth: Yeah. You know, Chelsea Weldon says that Yourevid is a neutral platform, but the way it’s set up, it just keeps feeding you more and more poison, you never see anything that offers another point of view. It doesn’t want you to.
Henry: How do they justify it? What is the rationale?
Elizabeth: Russell says that their philosophy is “Fight bad speech with good speech.” But how, if the algorithm only lets you hear one kind of speech?
Anyone else seeing a bit of projection here, liberals guilty of egregious unfairness (censorship) which they then accuse patriots of?
