Media Narrative Activate: It was DARK!!!!

Media Narrative Activate: It was DARK!!!!

Well, the media wasted no time coming up with the narrative for Day One of the Republican National Convention. It was DARK!!!!

Dark, my friends! Super-duper darky darkness.

Yeah. They did the same thing for President Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech too, remember?

And his Inauguration speech.

Not to mention every State of the Union Address.

And every single other speech he has ever given.

So it’s hardly shocking they would return to this silly “It was DARK!!!” narrative.

Yes sir. Last night’s Republican Convention was nothing but dark and dystopic and apocalyptic and nihilistic!

It was baddy-bad-bad-bad.

And did I mention it was dark?

It was DARK

Did none of these oafs watch a minute of the Democratic National Convention? Not that I would blame them if they didn’t. Because, in addition to having the production quality of 1980s public access television, it was, well, it was dark.

Trump is a fascist, racist who will destroy our “democracy” if he wins reelection. This country is a racist shithole that is filled with racists because it’s systemically racist and Trump said “very good people” about the racists who are crawling all over this racist shithole country. And did we mention that Trump is a fascist?

Now, I have watched several of the speeches from last night.

And let’s just say, the “It was DARK!!” narrative is not rooted in reality.

In addition to the deeply moving and powerful speech by Maximo Alvarez that I featured in the previous post, here’s a few other highlights from yesterday:

Wow! Parnell knocked it out of the park. Holy smokes, is that great. Though, not exactly what I would call “dark.”

Do any of these speeches sound “Dark” to you?

You want to see dark? How’s this for “dark?”

Vile Twitter Resistance

Now, if you want to know the truth, I suspect the garbage media came up with the “It was DARK!!” narrative late Thursday night after Joe Biden finished his somewhat pedestrian acceptance speech. If you recall, Joe banged on about how he was fighting on the side of the Light against the Dark.

His campaign team keeps tweeting out this Light versus Dark message from old Joe’s Twitter account.

Like this one from Sunday:

And obedient campaign operatives that they are, the dinguses in the media decided to play that up by accusing the Republican Convention of being dark – despite the utter lack of darkness.

As a side note, thanks to Richard Spencer’s endorsement of Biden, we now know that when Biden was talking about Light, he meant the warm glow from a Tiki Torch.

Any old how.

If you want to read an excellent summary of Day One, check out Mollie Hemingway’s column at the Federalist “6 Quick Takeaways From the First Night of the Republican National Convention.”  Mollie watched all of the Democratic Convention.  And she does a great job comparing and contrasting the RNC with last week’s DEMentia Telethon.

You might also enjoy the Federalist podcast from Friday where Mollie and Sean Davis talk about last week’s dreary Democratic Convention. It’s pretty entertaining, actually.

Meanwhile, CNN’s resident spud, Brian Stelter apparently believes it’s 1992, and the only way for folks to see the convention is to tune in to network and cable news.

Yes, Brian. Maybe, and I know this will sound like science fiction, but maybe one day someone will invent a way for Americans to watch the Republican National Convention on their computer – where speeches are streamed live as they happen. Hey! I know! They can even call it Live-Streaming!

One day, Brian. Maybe that will be a reality.

What a buffoon.

But trust me. They really wish they still had complete control over what we see.

Sadly, they act as if they still do.

How else do you explain running with this “It was DARK!!!” narrative despite the fact that millions of American could watch it in a myriad of ways and see for themselves that Day One wasn’t in any way, shape, manner or form “dark.”

Stupid, inaccurate narratives only work if nobody is watching for themselves. And, sadly for the media hacks, a heck of a lot of people were watching last night’s Republican National Convention — far, far more than watched last week’s DEMentia Telethon.

    I often refer to the broadcast media as ABCNNBCBS. I am not creative enough to have come up with this on my own, but I can’t recall from whom I must have stolen the thing.

    Lately, I have had to modify the initials to ABCNNBCBNS/DNC Cartel.

    It is truly impossible to discern which is the dog, which is the tail and who’s wagging what.
    What is daily more clear is that the DNC talking points are the broadcast media’s primary lede, so the differentiation is irrelevant anyway.

    Best meme of the week:

    Explain your reasoning why you plan to vote for Biden, but without referring to Trump.

    LOL! All.Dems have is “it was dark and dystopian!” A great nation standing for equality, freedom and opportunity actually IS their idea of a dystopia. That’s the sad part.

    I seems the DNC talking points media needs to get a thesaurus.
    Guys, listen, it isn’t some kind of dinosaur, it’s a big book, try one out sometime.
