After labeling NSA leaker Edward Snowden a traitor and a terrorist, the Fox News Watch panel exploded with laughter at the very notion that the government should fear the people.
Right after one panelist devilishly referenced the concept that the government should fear the people as a joke, even referencing the concept as tracing back to Thomas Jefferson, the crew couldn’t stop from laughing at the very idea that the people are meant to keep the government in check. And of course it is an idea that is fundamental to not only upholding the Constitution itself (the fabric of our nation), but to keep the continuous threat of absolute corruption and tyranny in check.
SHOULD GOVERNMENT HAVE ABSOLUTE POWER?
But apparently Fox News thinks the government should be able to reign throughout the People’s Republic of America without any form of checks and balances, all while arresting all whistleblowers like Edward Snowden in the process. An amazing declaration for a news channel that at least pretends it is on the side of the conservative America population that actually considers the Constitution to be highly important.
But once again, it is revealed that all mainstream media networks are in fact running off of scripted theater – at least when it comes to the big issues.
In fact, notice how the female panelist begins to laugh when he even mentions Thomas Jefferson and the First Amendment. The Constitution and our fundamental rights truly are a joke today to the media, especially given the fact that they virtually do not exist when it comes to legislation. And amazingly, that is how the debate over our rapidly diminishing rights is circumvented and diminished further into Big Brother corruption.
One such example is the ultimate acceptance of the Patriot Act. Instead of discussing ways to fight it and how we can reclaim our liberties, the mainstream media accepts the Patriot Act/FISA as an absolute that should never be debated. Instead, they ‘debate’ something stupid like whether or not we need to do something even more extreme like hire the TSA for all sporting events to ‘fight terrorists’ and ‘keep us safe’.
Meanwhile, we have the DHS Constitution-free zone ‘border’ that engulfs 100 miles of the US along every single border (including oceans). And in this ‘border’, your belongings can be searched at any time without a warrant – because hey, it’s within the outlandish 100 mile ‘border’. Instead of actually discussing this and trying to do something about it, it’s ignored for more worthless news.
You even see this repeated with the recent NSA leak that reveals the agency tracks everything you do, and how the information was covered by the mainstream media as an absolute – something that we must live with for our safety. And more importantly, the debate is now whether or not Snowden is a ‘hero or traitor’, a completely moronic distraction that has somehow become the question of the year repeated by every radio and television host on the face of the Earth. This is now the debate, not ‘why is the NSA spying on us’ or let alone ‘should they’ be in the first place.
The answer, of course, is absolutely not. At least not in any nation that is not submerged into the deepest depths of corrupt takeover.
There’s a reason that 71% of Americans say that the Founding Fathers of this nation would be ashamed of our country today, and the mainstream media script readers are very much to thank for this fact.
