Most people reading this article right now likely understand the insultingly low attention span of the average American. What is today’s top story is often and quickly buried by tomorrow’s media outrage, fear mongering or sensationalist nonsense. We are bombarded 24 hours a day by our televisions, computers, and cell phones, with propaganda disguised as “news” — 99% of which is completely negative.
Thanks to the short memories of Americans this news cycle of propaganda can easily sway their attention from one story to the next, spotlighting negativity to keep citizens in a constant state of fear and obedience. We recently witnessed the nature of the easily swayed masses as the corporate press shifted from covid hysteria to Russia hysteria.
The masses temporarily switched out their masked profile pictures in exchange for Ukrainian flags almost overnight and just like that, the Branch Covidians had traded their “mask and jab” mantra for their new one, “I stand with Ukraine.”
Obviously there is nothing wrong with standing with the Ukraine as they have been invaded by a thug dictator. In fact, it is quite noble to stand against tyrants. But the selective outrage is embarrassing and the Ukraine emojis show how hollow the sentiment is considering the fact that most of these same folks have been largely silent as children have been slaughtered for 7 years in Yemen.
Essentially, they are outraged because they have been told to be outraged. And, because of short attention spans, that outrage is about to shift once more and it will most likely land back on covid.
The media and the establishment are already setting the stage for covid hysteria once more. After Americans got a much-needed vacation from chief fearmonger himself, Dr. Anthony Fauci, suddenly reappeared in the media. This time, he is telling people to prepare for the possibility of more restrictions.
Last weekend, Fauci told ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos that Americans must be “flexible” and “prepared” to return to COVID-19 restrictions, if cases surge.
