Dear Mainstream Media, So Baffled by America’s Disdain for Clinton

 

                “What difference, at this point, does it make?!”

 

 

I recently revisited a report in The Sacramento Bee regarding the hostility Secretary Clinton has faced throughout the election cycle – the reporter seemed absolutely baffled… I, personally, think you must be either completely detached from reality, are incapable of retrospect, or suffer from acute bouts of denial to find that question difficult to answer. However, we’ve observed this attitude both acute and widespread among so-called journalists these days. I could literally just go on indefinitely with potential reasons for a great deal of the disdain her campaign had to work to impossibly mitigate… And quickly.

The mainstream media and the journalists churning out the propaganda have long abandoned any attempts at observing the journalistic ethics of objectivity, non-partisanship, and non-biased reporting. Donald Trump’s victory this week was a triumph of epic proportions. Until this week, I’d felt helpless and claustrophobic at the thought of how daunting a task it would be to dismantle the corrupt, elitist giant media empire which decided our elections, both gave and took back power and prestige for the sake of special interests. I felt helpless knowing how much influence this juggernaut held over my fellow citizens unable or unwilling to make this readily apparent revelation for themselves. It seemed very few of my peers understood that it wasn’t just partisan reporting, the media had been complicit in undermining and insulting the intelligence of American citizens for years while showing signs of devolving even further.

Donald Trump changed all of that in a single day. It seems the media hasn’t yet fully accepted that fact; they’ve only continued to incite divisiveness among the citizenry. That may prove effective in the short-term, but the fact is people are waking up to the truth, seeking it out, and thinking for themselves exponentially more so than it seems they once were. The election of Donald Trump despite the remarkably unprecedented media, political, elitist, Hollywood, pop-culture, and corporate collusion against the man failed to deliver the results to which our modern nobles have become accustomed… Whether or not the attacks were true mattered little. The sheer volume of accusations and implications had most believe it impossible a man under that much fire and loathed so much by so many of the most influential voices in this country implied so much; but, I’m struck by one thing in particular – the results proved incontrovertibly that the great and powerful “influencers”, accustomed to having their words hailed and followed by we mere plebeians, have clearly and decidedly lost that capacity to influence We the People. And it’s about God damned time!

The journalist who wrote the article I mentioned could only come up with one possible explanation for the public’s lack of embrace of Clinton – Misogyny. REALLY? That’s all this political pundit (an occupation which almost entirely rests on the capacity for providing thoughtful, sensible insights to readers) could come up with? That’s just insane. It’s so beyond ignorant it’s crazy. With his claim of misogyny, he invited readers to write in with our own insights – a challenge I accepted:

 

Good afternoon sir,

This is hardly my forte. I’d normally never actually take a reporter up on this; but what you said in your article questioning the apparent public hostility towards Secretary Clinton, in my opinion, is remarkably lacking in insight – a quality I imagine is rather imperative in that line of work. “America dislikes Hillary Clinton on account of misogyny…”

I’m not writing on account of ill-will, I’m writing because I’m baffled. It’s not the statement itself that’s left me incredulous; but rather that it was asserted by someone whose job it is to provide readers informed insights (insights not commonly arrived at by your every day moron)…. The assertion that misogyny is the underlying reason for America’s disdain for Hillary Clinton is incredibly short-sighted for a journalist, in the opinion of yours truly. I hear that sort of thing coming from the more uninformed, unenthused, and uneducated liberals I might encounter on a day-to-day basis…. I’d definitely expect it straight from the mouth of Mrs. Clinton herself or through spokesmen, paid trolls, and other Clinton allies taking a stab at raising the “misogyny card” in hopes that it might evoke some sort of national mass-amnesia pandemic……”

Is it really that mind-boggling for you to consider why fans of Hillary Clinton seem to be in short supply these days? I’m a simple layman – a mere plebeian – and I can name multitudes of reasons for the anger being demonstrated towards Secretary Clinton and her campaign; and I must tell you, I’ve taken such satisfaction observing it all unravel. For years I felt as if I was part of a frightfully small cadre of citizens keeping track of her many transgressions, lies, and manipulations; manifestations of greed on an almost unprecedented level in politics (which is quite an accomplishment, really); the flip-flopping; the legalize prose so transparently insulting to our collective intelligence; the embarrassingly condescending ways in which she speaks to her own supporters and base – to any casual observer with any capacity for critical thought or creating insights of their own volition, it seems readily apparent Hillary Clinton doesn’t even respect those she preaches to from her podiums on high.

She routinely avoids media, unscripted Q&A sit downs with real journalists who actually desire to conduct their jobs properly, with complete and utter disregard for potential voters. She talks transparency yet is CLEARLY the furthest thing from that. It’s insulting her campaign even includes that word or any word associated with it in their platform. I’m not even getting into the emails OR Benghazi simply because there were countless reasons to rue the inevitable day that woman would seek office far before those things even happened.

In this photo taken May 20, 2015, Democratic Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., poses for a portrait before an interview with The Associated Press in Washington. For Democrats who had hoped to lure Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren into a presidential campaign, independent Sen. Bernie Sanders might be the next best thing. Sanders, who is opening his official presidential campaign Tuesday in Burlington, Vermont, aims to ignite a grassroots fire among left-leaning Democrats wary of Hillary Rodham Clinton. He is laying out an agenda in step with the party’s progressive wing and compatible with Warren’s platform _ reining in Wall Street banks, tackling college debt and creating a government-financed infrastructure jobs program.

I’m a white man (FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m completely devoid of “White Guilt”), so surely you can pass this off as purely based on misogyny; and, while you couldn’t possibly take my word, I tell you now that I would openly accept, support, and eagerly vote for ANYONE of ANY sex, skin color, religion, you name it. I care only for perceived motivations and genuineness, love of country, humility, the utmost respect for the nation they wish to lead. I’m rather averse to supporting those running for office not for public service, but for their own egos; or worse, out of some sense of entitlement – politically speaking, my only care in this world is for the health of this nation, it’s people, and its future… The fact Hillary Clinton was, is, and always will be corrupt is an incontrovertible fact of reality with which your reporters should familiarize themselves in due haste.

any say, “oh, but corruption in politics is far from isolated to Clinton!” And? We don’t want them either. Americans have begun to awake from the slumber which enabled far too many representatives of this nation to fail themselves, their people, and their country. Hillary Clinton visually embodies that very idea. Clinton is one of the few who we could call “the face” of all that’s wrong in American politics.

Not to mention, the whole narrative of her “inevitable” presidency that’s been thrust upon the citizenry for years has likely been majorly counter-productive. No one appreciates flagrant worship of an elitist who somehow received the crown of entitlement to lead this nation. Her candidacy was talked about by those in your industry, or in entertainment, for years now. The giddy anticipation was so painfully clear and cringe worthy – I actually feared the strategy would, indeed, result in the inevitable president Mrs. Clinton.

Thankfully…. And I mean that wholeheartedly… Thankfully, it seems at this point I wasn’t the only one put off by the very long, very public, and very obvious list of reasons for the public disdain which so dumbfounded you, the ever-insightful journalist. Perhaps you should take another look at her real history, rather than solely her carefully manicured highlight reels.

Respectfully,
