Joe: We Need More than Speeches
Seems like the President is ready to fight. But does he understand the war?
Good speech, Mr. President. Take the issues directly to them. Shrink the bubble. Love the dunk on the NRA and the victory lap on their grave. 🙌
This strategy is the right one politically, and this was a political speech. I get it.
But that’s not where the real war is. That’s on Telegram and Twitter and the enemy network of psychological traps masquerading as “news” websites and cable networks.
The cult feels the pressure we’re putting on them and they are reacting. Good. But we have to be ready to win this war or we’re just delaying the inevitable. We are faced with American ISIS. It needs to be treated that way. They want violence.
Sorry for the image, but what Lindsay Graham did yesterday on Fox News and what Tucker and his cohorts do every day on cable television, is no different from Zawahiri or bin Laden being pumped directly into millions of homes — which is exactly what they intend.
One bit of action that the President needs to take is to find a way to unfuck our FCC so we can start to take real action against these networks. The FCC is designed to have five commissioners in order to make sure there is no gridlock. The Republicans have managed to block Joe Biden’s nominee to the fifth commissioner spot, Gigi Sohn, so nothing is being done to fix the problem with our media.
Here are some of the people and organizations supporting her:
As our guest Milo from the Media and Democracy Project told us on Radicalized Pod, getting Gigi confirmed is absolutely critical to being able to start regulating the poison bathing our loved ones — and turning them against their own family and country.
Bringing attention to this nomination is something all of us can do. We must have a functional FCC so we can have the power to act on disinformation and propaganda. This is the battlefield, we need to seize the advantage while we have it.
