Donald Trump is a sexist and a xenophobe; Stephen Bannon is an anti-Semite; Jeff Sessions is a racist; Mike Pence is a homophobe and Micheal Flynn is an Islamophobe. Got it.
So is there such a thing as a non-racist, non-xenophobe, non-Islamophobe, non-sexist, non-homophobe conservative? Apparently not. And according to the media there never can be, either before or after the election. The bigoted theatre of the absurd is in full open-curtain mode and is showing little sign of getting to the final act so we can start a new play. It seems, as far as the self-assessed, non-fake news media is concerned, everyone that Trump is going to be working with (including himself of course) has one or more liberal bigot checkpoints that should worryingly concern social justice warriors, precious snowflakes and the fearfully afraid everywhere.
The proven-corrupt media went through the election throwing every insult it could think of against Trump and his supporters in the hopes that some of it would stick. However, whereas Clinton’s 60 million votes represented a drop of around 10 million from Obama’s high in 2008, Trump’s 60 million votes has been a consistent Republican turnout for the last three elections. It seems the media’s inherent bias strategy did not discourage Republicans from voting, and it did not encourage Democrat voters to get back to the 2008 level. This time, the media’s bias did not work; it was a painful shock to the system.
Along with other things this election has made it clearer to more than enough people in the country that the media has defined opinions that they will not debate or infringe, and those that do not share these defined opinions will be maligned and impugned. And although there has been some contrition and recognition of the need to be more inclusive and diverse from certain media post-election, the institutional bias is there still.
