I have to say – I am not a person that is way into politics or even stays 100% up to date with things. I definitely have my views on things – but find it frustrating to emerse myself in all of it all of the time as some people do. There is so much negativity and I am a pretty mellow la-dee-da type of person. I don’t like to add unnecessary stress to my life. One thing that I do believe is that, as an American, whether you agree with your president all of the time or not, you should show them at least a tiny bit of respect. You should not root for them to fail. You should want your leader to be successful right? Sure let it be known that you don’t agree, by all means. But why be blatantly disrespectful?
I am also the type of person who believes that everything you say or do has an effect on something or someone and that you are responsible for that. If you put some false idiotic statement on your facebook status, people are going to read that and take it as fact and talk about it and pass it on and this whole cloud of negativity over someone is created – by you.
But who are we? In the grand scheme of things we aren’t much as individuals. Who cares what our facebook status says right? Well what about major news sources. Like the FOX Nation. I do not watch FOX news. They do all of these things that I mentioned. All of these little, unnecessary, negative things that I find toxic on a small level like facebook is all that I see on FOX news except blown up a million fold. I see them trying to create fear, hate, and anger.
This was the headline page on the FOX news website recently.
I find this to be just obviously racist and offensive and cannot believe that they get away with things like this on a regular basis. FOX Nation picked out the African American people who attended and left out all of the white folk to stir up fear and hate amongst their racist viewers.
One would hope that most people know that FOX tends to ignore facts that everyone knows anyway so what does it matter. But, I know that there are some people who ONLY Watch FOX news and take what they say as 100% fact. (like my grandfather who once told me that all news is false, except FOX news which is the only balanced news that gives all 100% truths and NEVER exploits/exaggerates. And he said this in all seriousness, he really believes this which leads me to believe he is delusional in his old age.)
That is all. I obviously just saw this and needed to rant a little. Thanks for listening – whether you agree or not. And before anyone gets on here saying blah blah blah all news is false. I am fully aware that all news leaves things out and bends the stories to fit their agenda. But never have I seen so much omitted information, false information, and exaggerated information from one source.
