Recently many people have become absolutely fed up with the “Traditional” Mainstream Media. During the 2016 Election Cycle and ever since Trumps election win, they have caught many times lying, selectively reporting news, colluding with a specific candidate, and basically sending the message that they think the American people are a bunch of dumb cattle. It wasn’t any better overseas with the BBC showing a clear bias against the “Leave” side of the Brexit Vote. Beyond that Liberal misinformation and trashy indoctrination has gone beyond the news broadcast to Entertainment such as Television Dramas/Sitcoms, Comic Books, Print Media, even Video Games, all of these have become playgrounds for Liberal Censorship and Thought Control*. In the face of all this, many people might feel helpless, but there is hope and it is a page out of their own playbook.
* Using the Term “Thought Control” sickens me
and makes my ass clench like I am in prison and the biggest guy in the cell block is stalking up behind me. I hate this term. It, however, best describes what the media has seemingly been attempting this past year and longer.
Many are worried and rightly so that this left wing media indoctrination will affect our youth. Amazingly however it seems the left are losing ground with millennials and that Generation Z will be more conservative than the Baby Boomers. But let’s not let our guard down since Liberals are actively attacking their access to information. The only way to stop it is to stop their cash flow through a boycott. Some think that is as easy as tuning out of a show you don’t like or even a network, but it takes a lot more than that.
A major problem is that Liberals have worked the industry to their advantage. A major joke that they throw around about Fox is that their shows get canceled so often, but that is because Fox runs as a meritocracy and contracts programs so they don’t get stuck with a sucky program. Other networks like ABC and NBC have been known to keep running unpopular programs which one would assume they fund from the revenue brought in by the good ones. Factor in Ad money and the fact some small group of people eats that shit up and it seems like a lost cause to get them to cut the SJW crap much less shut them down. After all, how can you penalize them when they seem impossible to hurt?
10 or even 20 years ago this would have been hard if not impossible. Luckily for Gen Z at least the technology age brings us so many possibilities. Since 2007 the perfected streaming service has provided consumers with the option to virtually cut the networks out of the loop. Funded by advertising fees as well as subscription fees, their survival depends on picking the high-cost production shows that bring in the most viewers. Some networks have tried to start their own services too but the bottom line is that shows that cost more require viewers to justify it, so by abandoning the traditional TV distributors and networks (and their streaming services), the model of tuning out of shitty shows works and brings us one step closer to purging a left wing dominated media.
Vote With Your Wallet
Obviously, they will still get money from advertising. That’s how they have run a free TV service for years. We can fight that though by avoiding name brands. Not entirely of course cause that is just a bullcrap move that can have an adverse effect on the economy. The goal is to reduce sales just enough that they have to reconsider where they focus their marketing, and that will be away from networks and towards streaming services.
Another source of their funding is the money they get from Cable and Sattelite providers. Some of these providers also offer internet service as well and have been known to gauge speeds on certain streaming services. Now obviously my first suggestion is to ask only for the internet and no TV service from these providers, but of course, the theme here is that it is never just that simple. Be sure to look into the providers since some will gauge speeds in favor of their own services or may be connected to one of the major networks. A fine example is Comcast, which as of 2013 has full ownership of NBC Universal which as we all know hosts an embarrassment known as The Rachel Maddow Show.
Did you know they even have their fingers in comic books now? The once beloved DC Comics which provided role models for young boys for over 80 years is now a subsidiary of Time Warner, the same Media Corporation that owns CNN and has close dealings with Comcast. This can account for some of the more left-wing tones in DC work, like how The Penguin from the Gotham TV program is now Gay. And not to drive the point too far home, but when criticized by fans for breaking cannon one of the shows actors gave the typical SJW response to criticism. It is a pretty sad fall from grace.
Marvel has not been much luckier. Along with adding new poorly written characters who are a monument to Virtue Signalling, they have pulled the exact same move as the writers of Gotham. Far from getting the positive reaction they hoped for, they instead face criticism from readers and surprisingly by some who rightly point out that the author in this basically made a “Bisexual Erasure” type statement. For those of you who don’t know, Bisexual Erasure is the tendency to minimalize the importance of or deny the existence of Bisexuality and it is basically a gays equivalent of homophobia since this tendency is seen most in the Gay and Lesbian communities. I like the idea of a sexy young Twink Iceman, but at the same time considering the motivation and the completely forced way they did it I would have to classify this as another thing to Boycott with your wallet since it is propagandistic trash.
Worth Less than Toilet Paper
I am not a fan of Bernie Sanders, I just want to state that for the record. All the same, it is fun to point out that last year the Washington Post published 16 negative stories about him in 16 hours on the 6th and 7th of March. There is no coincidence that this happened to coincide with the Primary Debate in Flint Michigan. They also were forced to acknowledge a story about Russian Propoganda they published was based on sham research. It is a shame since they used to be a reliable news source.
Don’t forget the New York Times feud with the President. They have told so many lies about Trump, it is hard to keep track of the entire exchange most times but it is clear that they have a major boner for Trump. There are also outlets that are unashamedly left-leaning such as the Huffington Post. That said there is a website known as AllSides which gauges the bias and reliability of both print and broadcast media. Upon giving it a cursory look over I can say that it seems legit and it allows you to vote on the reliability of any source then balances it against blind surveys conducted with average Americans to see which articles from which source people find most trustworthy.
Yes, I parodied a music video from nearly 40 years ago for this sections header, you can thank my father who is old as sin and listens to the same music over and over for that. Don’t lose sight of the point though, SJWs are destroying the video game industry. It is not paranoia either, remember the controversy around “Fire Emblem: Fates”? Before the release news came out that features and dialogue from the game had been removed by Nintendo Treehouse, specifically an employee known as Alison Rapp who aside from being an advocate of pedophilia was also abusive towards Nintendo’s Customers/Fans on Twitter. She was later fired not for harassing customers imposing her political beliefs onto how certain video games would be localized, but because she was prostituting herself on the sidelines and selling lewd images to customers. Not the reason I would have liked to see her fired for but, ehhhhh. Of course to her and her followers, it was “Muh because sexism” and her termination had nothing to do with her being a crappy worker with a shitty personality (which sadly it didn’t) or being a stupid whore and endangering Nintendo’s family friendly image.
And now we have the issue surrounding Mass Effect: Andromeda. Not surprising though. This was a long time coming since EA stopped hiring on merit and just started hiring any old SJW they could find apparently as many of the most valid claims from former EA fans is that game quality has dropped and SJW stuff has gone up. Mass Effect Andromeda is a prime example, besides complaints of its poor quality it had an almost forced and poorly written transgender character as well as an openly racist game designer who is suspected of making it impossible to make a fair skinned character in the game due to his political beliefs which may finally have gotten him fired for opening them up to a huge lawsuit. Whew, well with that run-on sentence aside my bottom line is that you should stop shopping EA and maybe research who is working on the development teams of your favorite video games.
The Battle Fought Far and Wide
After reading this I bet you feel overwhelmed and a little depressed. Yes, liberals like a plague of locusts are eating away at societies pathways of expression and recreation. Even sports are not safe anymore from being tainted by the left wing agenda. We have gone from a society of merit to one of mediocracy. We were pushed there by left wing tyrants with cash for years and have just come to notice it the past 8 years.
As with their efforts to push us here, our efforts to dry up their cash flow will take years. It can be sped along with lawsuits which I do encourage where appropriate and necessary as is the case with EA for allowing an openly racist developer to use his job as a medium to discriminate. It will still take plenty of patience however and a lot of willpower. I want to make it clear though that this article is not a call to action but a series of suggestions, some of which I myself will not follow because of my own limitations. I will however make one call to action, and that is a call to support alternative media online and on air. To quote the slogan for Alex Jones website Info Wars, “There’s a war on for your mind.” And I can tell you, the most meaningful battle of this war can only be fought by you yourself.
