Russia: Mainstream Media And Censorship To Blame for Incoming US Civil War

| The corporate-controlled U.S. mainstream media are deliberately pushing America towards a full-blown civil war, Russia claims.

In an op-ed for state-run Russia Today, journalist Robert Bridge claims left-leaning media giants have entered their third consecutive year of open warfare against Donald Trump.

Rt.com reports: This non-stop assault risks aggravating political passions to the point where ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’

| snowballs into something completely beyond our ability to control. Like full-blown Civil War.
Over the weekend, the Washington Post, one of most prominent serial producers of partisan agitation, published an article entitled, ‘In America, talk turns to something unspoken for 150 years: Civil War’. The piece, which deftly places Democrats above the fray, opens with the following whiff of grapeshot:
“With the report by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III reportedly nearly complete,

| mpeachment talk in the air and the 2020 presidential election ramping up … there’s talk of violence, mayhem and, increasingly, civil war,” the Bezos-owned paper forewarned.

With a level of audacity and self-righteousness that has become a trademark of the Left, not once did the article float the possibility that just maybe the mainstream media is complicit in the ongoing deterioration of political discourse,

| or that the Democrats are just as much to blame as the Republicans for the political fallout that now presents a grave risk to the Republic.

As many knowledgeable Americans will openly admit, battle lines have been drawn across the political and cultural frontier. This division is perhaps most conspicuous on social media, where friends and family who disagree with our political worldview get the ‘nuke option’ and are effortlessly vanquished(‘unfriended’)with the push of a button.

| This is a worrying development. The real danger will come when Americans from both sides of the political divide stop talking and start erecting electronic barriers around their political belief systems. Not even family members are spared from the tumult; ust because people share the same bloodline does not automatically mean they share the same political views. America, though still green behind the ears,

| may understand that fact better than many other countries.


| Yeah, sure Russia. Nothing to do with you guys, of coouuurse not. It's not like you're famous for propaganda and disinformation campaigns.

Oh, wait.

| As if russia hasn't similiar problems... This country is socially and politically divided too. Putins reign is backed up pretty much by ultraconservative reactionists, who dominate mass media pretty much. Even "liberals" and "communists" are infected with national chauvinism while subordinating or even ignoring the serious and increasing economical and social issues.

| On both sides they point wild across their borders, scapegoating "foreign powers" and "foreigners" for problems caused, amplyfied or at least ignored by their rotten politics.

| I may be a Trumpet, but Russia is a joke.

| Pot & Kettle.

| Pot and kettle it may be, but it is a fairly accirate analysis. A bit heavy handed in using the term civil war, but the divisive nature of modern political media is very true, and I agree that news outlets are some of the largest perpetrators in generating hate and division. So, while it is hypocritical, it is also a fair analysis.
