Yesterday on Twitter, somebody did a Twitter poll asking who is the one dividing the nation?
Among the choices were “Barack Obama” and “Donald Trump.”
But the truth is if you really want to know who’s dividing us, look no further than the mainstream news media.
They want division.
And I’m not entirely sure why.
Sure, a large part of it is their single-minded desire to make the country so toxic they can force Donald Trump out of office.
But this obsession with dividing us began long before Donald Trump even ran for office.
Remember three years ago when Ferguson went up in flames, CNN and MSNBC covered those riots like they were covering the Super Bowl.
Okay, that’s not fair.
Folks that cover the Super Bowl rarely cheer for one team over the other.
And these guys did.
They glorified and celebrated the very people who were burning Ferguson to the ground.
And they perpetrated the toxic myth of “Hands up, don’t shoot.”
These are not the actions of objective journalists.
And they’re certainly not the actions of a Free Press.
Would Barack Obama’s divisiveness spread so far and wide if we had a Free Press objectively reporting the facts?
They aided and abetted the riots that began in Ferguson and spread like a cancer throughout the country.
And while the divisive rhetoric of white supremacists, Black Lives Matter and Antifa are poisonous in and of themselves, it is the news media that has amplified the toxicity.
They’ve fanned the flames of hatred and division for their own purposes.
Take this for example.
The other day, Jack Posobiec tweeted out this:
Meanwhile: 39 shootings in Chicago this weekend, 9 deaths. No national media outrage. Why is that? https://t.co/9Crutnnrp8

Not long afterward, President Trump retweeted this tweet.
And the news media descended on Posobiec like locusts.
They accused him of being one of those evil racist Alt-Right people and a “conspiracy theorist.”
In no time, Posobiec and his family were subjected to harassment and threats.
The media – the supposed objective journalists – set a mob loose on a man who is not a white supremacist or member of the Alt-Right.
They defamed him in order to smear the President of the United States as a white supremacist.
So who’s dividing us?
Look no further than your television.
They want the American people suspicious of one another.
They want us hating each other.
And when we aren’t sufficiently divided, they step in and add more fuel to the fire.
