As someone who was once married to an SNL writer, I am particularly appalled by the new style of Politburo late night “comedy”, which is completely unfunny and in which the viewer is berated and beaten into submitting to a Trump-deranged, Far Left point of view. Late night comedy was not always such a weapon of Soviet-style conformity!
In December 2016, I joined Dark Journalist to discuss the passage of the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act, which I remain convinced is the source of this full-spectrum media derangement phenomenon. The legislation was allegedly designed to counter foreign propaganda but it has since been deployed to aggressively propagandize the American people.
The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act is the likely financier of the unprecedented, non-stop gaslighting of the American public into Trump Derangement and of this bottomless pit of Fake News. The Act’s budget is controlled by the State Department’s Global Engagement Center.
The goal of this 24/7 regime-change propaganda operation run by DC bureaucrats has been to impeach the President. One way to promote this is to subject the public to never-ending (idiotic, faked) media hoaxes intended to make Trump supporters look like violent bigots, from the “MAGA Bomber”, to the “MAGA Teens” to the “We are MAGA Country” assailants of Jussie Smollett’s fraudulent self-lynching, with each plot more moronic than the last.
But when the fakeness becomes too obvious, cover-ops are in order. In this segment of The Daily Show with South African host, Trevor Noah, he attempts to ridicule and to distance himself and to clean his hands (and by extension, those of the entire #FakeNews complex) from the fraudulent actions of Jussie Smollett.
The results are, indeed hilarious but we must never forget that Smollett’s mendacious claims were given life by the same channels who now burn him in this delicious comedic effigy.
