As Civil Unrest Justifiably Rages Across America- Media Outlets Are Busy Condemning Protesters, Not Covering The News
Four months of Quarantine and the USA today looks like a scene ripped from a dystopian teen novel.
Minneapolis Riots, Atlanta Protests, even Washington D.C. is on fire- American’s are pissed off.
Not just American’s- the whole damned planet.
What do the “News Outlets” have to report? Condemnation and shaming.
American lives- black American lives- are being taken at an alarming rate by police brutality.
In any given newspaper off the shelves from any U.S. grocery store, you may or may not hear the names of individuals that have been murdered- executed- by the police.
George Floyd. Ahmaud Arbery. Eric Garner. Joshua Cloud. Michael Brown. Breonna Taylor.
Now, when this City or that City has protests to join in solidarity with one another- suddenly, all those same “news outlets” make sure to cover that news.
The Media is controlled.
The news is sensationalized.
News outlets are not much better than tabloids of the 90s.
Journalists have lost their edge with all the fear they have helped to spread.
Change has to come.
Change has come.
Welcome to The Change.
Mainstream media would have us believe that for us Protestors to have a Voice, we should fall in line and obey the rules that They have laid out. If we just follow- They will lead.
And They will lead- They will lead us to hell just like the monarchs of the past we fought to escape.
We were not puppets to be manipulated, congealed, or operated against our wills then-
We are not now-
Let’s get this clear; we NEVER WILL BE.
So go ahead and back up off us-
LET US BREATHE!
Starting on May 31st, 2020, Washington D.C. found itself gripped with angry protests demanding change.
And why shouldn’t they?!
The government has dictated women’s reproductive rights, same-sex marriage rights, transgender rights, not to mention our basic human rights- while we have been begging for change.
As the Coronavirus continues to plague us with uncertainty, unknown futures, and unbridled fear- our American brothers and sisters are being murdered by police.
This is why We protest.
We. Do Not. Tolerate. Execution.
I use the word ‘execution’ very deliberately, for that is what it is.
Police Officers are public servants-
Yet they patrol the streets and abuse their power daily, regardless of what We The People say.
Police Officers are supposed to uphold and protect the Law-
Instead, they only support and defend one another.
Police Officers are supposed to stand for justice, peace, and fairness-
However, to so many, they are seen as the Evil Empire enforcing their own regime.
I understand that my words are inflammatory, that not everyone is going to agree with what I have to say.
I am here to tell you that that is okay.
It is more than okay.
It indicates that we still live in a free world, or a free(ish) nation.
As soon as we all start to sound, look, and act the same- We The People should be terrified.
This planet is diverse, varied, filled with wonder, and difference.
No one group of people, one nation, or one ethnicity is better than another-
Yet we all have our particular quirks.
I live in the far North East- it’s damned cold- not many can tolerate it, but to me, it feels like home.
Others live in faraway places where I would consider a desert- yet to them, it feels like home.
Two very different climates- two very different perspectives of the world- two very different ways of life.
Is one better than the other?
Does each of them need their special consideration to dwell there successfully?
What does that mean?
Well, it doesn’t mean that we all dress the same-
I dare you to wear clothes for desert here in the far North East.
That doesn’t mean that we all sound the same-
Here in the far North East, we do not have poisonous animals or insects- much different than the desert- therefore, the language or warnings used by mothers in these two locations will sound much different.
It doesn’t mean that we all act the same-
Imagine City Folk coming to the country for vacation- now imagine Country Folk heading to the City for vacation- it is evident when the roles are reversed.
The thing is- this isn’t an issue- not really.
Mainstream Media wants us to believe, speak, and think the same.
Mainstream Media demonizes anything that goes against their established norm.
Mainstream Media would never print an article like the one you are reading.
Well, screw that.
Renaissance Rising is committed to bringing you free global news that talks about events and stories that are not oft-covered by government news outlets- from a variety of world perspectives.
If you are sick of “The Same Old News”- it is time you join the family- RenRising is sick and tired of it also.
Mainstream Media is famous for touting “Protesters Protesting Wrong.”
I was involved in the 2016-2017 Standing Rock Protests for four months ending in my arrest; also, during that time, I drove with a team of friends to D.C. to Occupy Inauguration- I am familiar with protests and protesters.
Mainstream Media makes every protest out to be violent.
But you know who the violent, enraged, aggressors genuinely are?
The Police Force.
Police Officers have all the training, all the equipment, all the knowledge-
Yet they let peaceful, prayerful, unarmed Protestors unnerve them so much that THEY incite the violence- only to turn Main Stream Media on us as soon as We The People react.
Until the Police Force is Reformed from the foundation up- We The People will not stop- a few bad apples have rotted the whole bunch!
Truth is getting out.
Mainstream Media is not friends of We The People.
The established System of the Fraternity Of Police Officers is not friends of We The People.
The American Government and those in “charge” are not friends of We The People.
What happens when We The People do not approve of the actions of the ‘elected’ officials ‘overseeing’ us?
Just what The Founding Father’s wrote into the Consitution Of The United States Of America-
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” (https://constitutionus.com/)
We The People.
Not The American Government.
Not The Military.
Not The Media.
WE, THE PEOPLE.
There is no ‘right’ way to protest. Mainstream Media doesn’t get to dictate this.
We The People make the rules- so keep that in mind while Protesting- is what you are doing wholesome, healthy, or something you would let your grandparents watch you do?
If it is- all the power to you.
If it isn’t- think of what you are standing for- is your message strengthened or weakened by your actions?
Violence is rarely the answer, but we cannot say it is always wrong.
Police have been brutalizing, maiming, and murdering our brothers and sisters for far too long. It is past time that we are heard when we speak up.
After all, We The People are what America is all about- as soon as it isn’t about We The People, it is our responsibility to take that power back.
