Donald Trump was against the 2nd Gulf War when 80% of the country and nearly all of our elected officials pushed for it. In recent weeks, President Trump has echoed his long-standing sentiment that he does not want another war in the Middle East even as Iran provokes the world to respond to their obvious attacks on the freedom of shipping in the extremely important Strait of Hormuz. Yet even after being caught red-handed, they still claim it’s President Trump who is pushing for war.
And leftist media is echoing this sentiment.
It’s amazing that the media can play the smoking gun video, see the evidence that Iran was not only behind these attacks but the attacks from last month, and still try to fame the narrative around provocations by the White House. It only makes sense if you realize just how biased the media really is.
Left-leaning Politico offered the latest in a long string of reports that it’s the President, not the terrorists in Iran, who is to blame for rising tensions.
The U.S. reaction to the episode has sparked concerns that President Donald Trump and his administration are firmly on the path toward war with Iran.
The only people concerned about the administration’s “path toward war with Iran” are those who are either not paying close attention of who get their news from leftist media. Most conservative outlets are reporting the truth, that Iran is provoking us and thus far the administration has shown a very high level of restraint in responding. The only reason we haven’t directly punished Iran for their attacks is because they have thus far avoided attacking direct American interests. That may very well be the next step in their escalation plan if they cannot be made to understand the consequences before taking such an action.
Here’s the problem. They read American news outlets. They watch the internal strife and react accordingly. If they are led to believe by the false narrative about the President that their strikes are shifting American sentiment in their direction, they will be emboldened. By echoing Iran’s own talking points, leftist media in America is giving them more reason to carry out further attacks.
Calling the fake news media the “enemy of the people” was dangerous because it opens up doors to suppression of the 1st Amendment. I was against this message when the President first made it. Now, I’m seeing he was right all along. Their response to Iran’s attacks is even more dangerous to Americans and our interests than anything the President has Tweeted because the echoing of Iranian talking points by mainstream media draws us closer to war. I never thought I’d say this, but fake news is more than just an election or education problem. Today, the irresponsible way in which the media would rather echo the lies of the Iranian regime than the truth of their own President shows just how unhinged they’ve become.
Today, they proved me wrong. They really are the enemy of the people who will do anything to make the President look bad, even if it means costing American lives by driving Iran towards war. Unfortunately, the only recourse is to promote the truth. We cannot weaken the 1st Amendment despite the lies being promoted by the press. Not to be too self-serving, but the best way for patriots to counter fake news is to help news outlets like NOQ Report become more prominent through your generous donations.
The media has always been the pawns of Democrats, but now they’re extending their activism to become pawns of the Iranians. If it hurts Trump, they’ll publish it, even if it hurts Americans in the process.
