Americans are as divided today as they have ever been in their history, thanks to the mainstream media’s exploitation of conflict as a revenue source.
The infotainment industry is pushing us ever closer to our wit’s end these days, vilifying our fellow Americans with reckless abandon, hoping to get some juicy, violent content for their advertising platforms.
And this isn’t some abstract effect, either; there are very real examples of radicalized citizens crossing the line, on the marching orders of the media.
The latest example of this culture-media war saw a Georgia Congresswoman attacked in a restaurant.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., said Monday night that she was “attacked” by an “insane woman” at a restaurant and yelled at by the woman’s son over her political stances.
The congresswoman claims the incident was sparked by a difference of political opinions and that the mother-son duo had “no respect” for opposing viewpoints.
Greene was blunt in her assessment of the situation.
“They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views,” Greene wrote in a tweet. “They are self righteous, insane, and completely out of control.”
“I was sitting at my table, working with my staff, and never even noticed these people until they turned into demons,” she explained. “People used to respect others even if they had different views. But not anymore. Our country is gone.”
Greene has been a frequent target of the radical left, thanks to her close alignment with the Trump-centric MAGA Movement.
