Let me ask you a question. Were you at all shocked that
the God-Emperor ascended his throne Donald Trump won the US election? When I say shocked, I don’t mean horrified. I also don’t mean scared and I don’t mean disgusted. What I mean is that you couldn’t believe he won because you really thought he would lose. You don’t have to hate Trump to have been shocked; you could have voted for him believing there is no chance he would win.
If you were shocked, I want you to think for a second. Why did you believe he had no chance? I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that you watched/read mainstream news sources (i.e. CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Fox News, Wall Street Journal, etc). See, these news sources gave Donald Trump absolutely no chance of winning even the nomination of the GOP, much less the general election. In fact, the few people who believed Trump would win the election were laughed at; Trump campaign was considered a complete joke.
Donald Trump winning the Republican nomination against all odds should have proven that he is a force to be reckoned with. Naturally the mainstream news media didn’t seem to learn anything from this. Then continued to double down on Trump losing. Just two days before the election the LA Times, among others, projected strongly for Hillary Clinton. They predicted that Hillary would win with 353 electoral votes against Donald Trumps 186. Turns out they were wrong, very wrong. Not only did Trump win with almost 300 electoral votes, but many states predicted to blue went to Trump by a wide margin: Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, etc.
I bring all this up for a reason. See, you were shocked that Trump won because the mainstream news media told you that Hillary would trounce Trump. Polls conducted by these news sources had Clinton firmly ahead for practically the entire election cycle. Now, there were news sources, bloggers and authors who predicted that Trump would win from the very beginning, but these guys were seemingly small fries compared to massive news stations like CNN and Fox News; they were “nobodies”. Vox Day and Mike Cernovich, both influential bloggers and successful authors in their own right, predicted a Trump victory months ago. Mike Cernovich, in particular, went further and released a book analyzing Trump’s successful candidacy almost a month before the election. The guy was that sure Trump would win. So clearly, there were some who predicted the Trump victory and their readers, myself included, were not all that surprised when Trump actually won. Those that received their news from mainstream sources were the shocked ones.
There are two reasons that could explain why mainstream news sources were wrong: 1) they were lying to you and 2)they were incompetent. Now it doesn’t matter which reason is true; both should disqualify these news sources as anything worthy of your time. They failed big time and their credibility is now suspect. This is not a matter of liberal news media vs conservative news media. Fox News also got it wrong and refused to take Donald Trump seriously as well. If anything, this election shows how trustworthy the American news media is. I suggest you do yourself a favor and find yourself other news outlets to explore. Let these mainstream news sources burn to the ground.
