The enemies of the people unite

The enemies of the American people mass-collude in a futile attempt to convince the people that those who relentlessly attack them and their interests is not their enemy:

US newspapers big and small hit back Thursday at Donald Trump’s relentless attacks on the news media with a coordinated campaign of editorials, triggering a fresh tirade from the president on Twitter.

Leading the charge was The Boston Globe, which had called for the drive highlighting the importance of a free press, accompanied by the hashtag #EnemyOfNone.

More than 300 newspapers around the country joined the effort.

“Today in the United States we have a president who has created a mantra that members of the media who do not blatantly support the policies of the current US administration are the ‘enemy of the people,’” the Globe editorial said.

The press is not free. It is owned by six corporations, none of them owned or controlled by Americans. And the press is most certainly opposed to the interests of the American people, as its monolithic endorsement of Hillary Clinton and the invasion of the United States by foreigners demonstrates.

The media is the enemy of the American people. There is absolutely no question about it.

UPDATE: Apparently the Senate is too. This is not a surprise.

The Senate on Thursday approved a resolution asserting that the press is “not the enemy of the people,” as President Trump has claimed, and condemning Trump’s ongoing attacks against reporters. The Senate quickly considered the resolution from Sens. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, and Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and passed it unanimously in a voice vote.

The President should hold a ceremony vetoing their resolution.
