N.Y. TIMES worried about threats to democracy? Oh, really?

Frequently appearing as worrisome  public narratives are the fears of external threats to U.S. democracy, be they bricks-and-mortar attacks or cracks appearing in the basic legal underpinnings of our nation.

The below-referenced TIMES article goes there, … but effectively gets it UPSIDE-DOWN … seriously adding to our confusion.

The piece aims to disclose potentially damaging ramifications of what they say is Russia’s social media “warfare” against the U.S.

— “If there has ever been a clarion call for vigilance and action against a threat to the very foundation of our democratic political system, this episode is it,” former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified before Congress — as stated in the article.

POOR US!

WE in the U.S., of course, … would NEVER do anything to create or further an “information war against global democracy,” undermine another nation’s sovereignty, or interfere in their elections, … would we? Neither, heaven forbid, would we use REAL war techniques like soldiers or bombs or drones to disrupt internal affairs abroad, would we? Not US!

Among the tremendous ironies, disinformation, and outright lies of such a major and “serious” article, is the TOTAL ABSENCE OF AWARENESS of just HOW MUCH our own home-grown oligarchy with their bought-and-paid-for media empire and cash-driven political machinery … are indeed engaged in multiple levels of attacking, dismantling, and destroying whatever remains of a functional democracy here in the USA — one that should consistently hear, reflect, respect, … and serve the American People!

This would just be a perverse joke, were it not so deadly serious for us all, and for the planet. Here we have many local proponents actively tearing down democratic practices & institutions both domestically and abroad, screaming about their concerns over possible Russian influences upon our internal politics! Obfuscating what really goes on right here daily by controlling news coverage, is how they cover-up their own true actions and roles.

Yes. We SHOULD be afraid … afraid of those arrogant domestic automatons chipping away at our rights and freedoms … and of those individuals paid good money to call themselves “journalists” while misleading us and hiding from us major realities that they themselves might not even be capable of perceiving, much less comprehending!
