Trump Supporters Humiliate Smug, Dismissive Congressman
Hunter Thompson said, “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” To those of us who survived the financial crisis of 2008, there is no mystery in that statement. To those who started careers working online after that period, the statement is especially pertinent.
The political events of the early 2000s through the present day have awakened a lot of people to the fact that there is a lot more going on than the thin narrative given to us by the mainstream media indicates. With the rise of the internet and the need for people to become financially independent, a lot of people started YouTube channels, monetized them and made names for themselves by providing news and news analysis.
These voices have become a powerful vector of competition for mainstream news and entertainment outlets. The fact that a person can set up a laptop computer in a kitchen and create a channel that can compete for ratings against CNN and FOX — and win — has made a lot of people in the mainstream media very uncomfortable.
This has lead to campaigns of slander against these small independent content creators. It has also resulted in mega-companies like Google creating algorithms that throttle channels which push a brand of politics that Google heads do not like. Even Donald Trump’s Twitter account was temporarily shut down by a lone employee of Twitter, as was the YouTube channel of Jordan Peterson.
Here’s Mark Dice on YouTube Trump supporters, Diamond & Silk, taking the fight — and a whole lot of sass — to Congress.
