Trump’s harsh tweet on mainstream media yesterday once again convinced the “progressive left” that Trump is a nazi fascist tyrant.
Though, Trump just openly stated the conservatives’ attitude towards press they have had for the last 25 years. Many Republican leaders have already stated this, but in a softer and more politically correct form.
I agree that having the President undermine the judiciary and media is pretty disturbing, but it all is just plain rhetoric (yet?) and it hasn’t caused real harm to the media.Unlike Barack Obama, who never critiqued the media, but was silently throwing a monkey wrench into its job.
Under Obama The Department of Justice put the media under pressure, they had to reveal the names of their whistle-blowers. Over the Obama’s years, the administration has prosecuted nine cases involving whistle-blowers and leakers, compared with only three by all previous administrations combined, they even labeled one journalist as a co-conspirator in a criminal case, while he was just doing his job.
In 2012 Eric Holder, then-Attorney General spied on the AP journalists by monitoring their phones hoping to find out who provided information to them.
Cases mentioned above are just the most outrageous ones, while there are dozens of those.
But of course, Trump is nazi fascist tyrant and his tweets pose a real threat to all the freedoms we have.
