I, like many others, was surprised when Trump was selected to be the President of the United States. We all know the system is rigged (our President
elect even brought this issue up) so what exactly were the puppetmasters doing this time around? More importantly, is it working?
So let's talk about the players in this tragicomedy.
We have Hillary Clinton-- corrupt, villainous; the very definition of "The Establishment."
We have Donald Trump-- brash, divisive, primed to hit people viscerally, whether it be to tap into their fears (illegal immigrants, radical Islamic
) or their hopes (this guy is here to destroy corruption, to make America great again, to stick it to the Man!).
We have the American people, primed by MSM to fear, distrust and despise "the other," whether that be a partisan, race or class issue, or all
We have the media, which we all know is owned by a few very rich powerful people, feeding us fear and hate on a daily basis.. inflaming old racial
tensions, deliberately partisan, sensational, appealing to people's mose base emotions.
We have the internet-- a seemingly infinite depository which provides loads of information.. some factual, some not, and provides forums for people to
anonymously spew rhetoric which they will not be held accountable for.
So the internet has, in a sense, made the plebs aware of the secret operations of the elite. But it is also full of disinformation and an excellent
medium to spread propaganda and inflame the passions of people. And all the while we are gathering info on the elite, they are gathering info on
the average citizen has come to truly despise the establishment and is ready to throw aside their serfdom in favor of self-reliance.
Whether said citizens are capable of self-reliance at this point in time is another issue.. the desire is there.
So who better to put forth than a candidate that is "anti-establishment"? All the bankers hate him (do they, he is a billionaire after all) Soros
hates him (so we think) the elite owned media hates him, and he speaks his mind
! He is not like the impotent president who can't bring himself
to say "radical Islamist terrorist" he is not like the SJWs who hate white people but call everyone else racist, and he is NOT PC!
Just the right guy for the environment. He runs a divisive campain. His tweets are picked up on by the media and his opponent and shock those who
don't subscribe to his beliefs.
Meanwhile his opponent is mired in scandals.
Those who like the first candidate are categorically opposed to those who like the second, and vice-versa. One group supports a criminal, while the
other supports a hate-monger. One group is treasonous, while the other is deplorable. Even darker rumors whirl. The democrats are hiring thugs to
disrupt rallies. They might be involved in a child sex ring. And all the while the elite-run media fuels the flames.
But no one really thinks Trump will win. So when the email scandal is reopened a week before the election, people are pissed! On both sides people
are worked up into a fever-pitched frenzy. Trump supporters think the whole system is rigged and they will have to accept a criminal as president.
Clinton supporters think that the Alt-R is nuts, full of crazy conspiracy theorists and racists, and are deep-down afraid because they can see support
for Trump everywhere.
Fast forward to the night of the election. The Trump supporters watch in triumph as their candidate crushes the opposition. The Clintonites watch in
disbelief as their candidate is demolished. It's just close enough to keep people glued to their TVs, emotions running high.
The day after the election is unlike any other election in the history of the US. Clinton supporters are crushed, they can't look Trump supporters in
the eye, thinking that they are all racist misogynists (from Trumps own words) and that a reality TV star has just been elected to run their country.
Trump fans are elated, still full of disgust towards Hillary and towards the population which is labeling them as racist misogynists.. enboldened by
Everyone takes to twitter.. some take to the streets..
So, ATS.. how does this play end? It is up to us. Do we do what the elite tells us or do we break the chains? Time will tell.
