Do you know why the military shoots at silhouettes of people?

Well, there are a few reasons, but one of the reasons is to normalize shooting at another human being. It's just not a natural reaction for people to shoot at other people. Its why there are names out there like, Jerry, Hun, Jap, Nip, Gook, and Raghead, its to dehumanize the other side.

I mean, who would you rather shoot at? Hamid, a father of two, whose son was accidentally killed, or that terroristic muzzie over there?

My point in all of this is to show what Donald Trump is doing to the American Public right before their own eyes. His loathing of the media has gotten to the point of blasting music so loud at his rallies. That the media there has a hard time doing a live report. Did this go on before FOX news decided to stop covering his rallies live? Trump has said time after time that the media is the enemy. During his rallies when Trump comments on the media in the back, people make gestures at them like the slicing of their throat.

He has also muddled the waters about American Intelligence. They're right, they're wrong, there is a Deep State embedded in there out to get me. He has gaslighted the American public to the point of which has never been done before. If he told me that he knew a way to hypnotize dimwitted people, it would take a second for me to decide if he was just bullshitting me or not.

However, I'm not trying to say that Trump is some evil genius that has an Island Lair either. I'm just pointing out that he is normalizing things that just shouldn't be normal.

Its gotten so bad, that the media is even giving cute nicknames to these racist white women Please Stop Giving Racist White Women Adorable Nicknames not to mention the fact that these people are starting to think that what they are doing is ok. Where would they be getting an idea like that? Im not taking away that these people had already been racists, its just that now that they see their President doing it, they think its ok for them to do it as well.

As we speak the "right-leaning media" is out there spreading flat out lies about Jamal Khashoggi. Saying how he is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and to Osama bin Laden. Where is the country that would rail against these types of abuses, and against a journalist who tried to bring light where tyrannical dictators didn't want the light shown? It sure as hell is the United States anymore. The UK, EU, or the UN is going to have to take the lead on this.

1. Here is Trump for the 1st time actively praising a violent action

Dismayed journalists condemn Trump for praising assault on Guardian reporter

“Gianforte is a criminal. He pled guilty to [assault]. The president is congratulating a criminal on committing a crime,” said New York Times correspondent Binyamin Appelbaum.

Trump’s comments “mark the first time the president has openly and directly praised a violent act against a journalist on American soil,” added New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg.

Trump fondly reminisced about the physical assault that occurred on May 24 last year when Ben Jacobs, the Guardian’s political correspondent, asked Gianforte a question about healthcare policy in the course of a special congressional election in Montana. At Thursday’s rally, Trump said that anyone who could perform a body-slam, as Gianforte did on Jacobs, was “my guy,” and that news of the attack, which occurred the night before the special election, probably helped Gianforte win.

Nothing to see here folks. Just a president normalizing assault on the media.
