Mine happened in 1980. The media trashed Reagan at the Republican convention. I couldn't wait to see the Democrats get theirs the following month. Never happened. I saw firsthand how biased the media was.

I haven't existed back then. But it's interesting... once we see the mask slipping, once we see the truth about the media and the establishment, we start to question everything we know about the past. We start to wonder: "Wait a minute, has it always been like that, and did I just get aware of it now?"

And it looks like, the answer is yes. It may be more vicious today, because we have a president who fights back actively. But the process existed for ages.

Also McCarthy was right all along, and the media covered their Marxists allies in high positions even back then. There is no reason to believe it ever stopped.

They actually were neutral towards the Nazis after the Soviets signed a non-aggression pact with them. The media has always sided with evil quite naturally. They just used to not be as shrill as they are now.

Reagan brought about the fall of the Berlin wall. Instead of trying to appease and coexist with the communist he said something along the lines of... How about this: We win, they lose! And that's what happened. This brought about great prosperity and freedom and a sense that the model of the Western world was one for the rest of the world to follow. The west assumed that, eventually all countries would become democratic and have the same values. In some places (like Hong Kong, Taiwan) that sort of happened. But we were arrogant and wrong to think that everyone would simply follow suite. That China as long as we let them develop, they would also become a free country. We were wrong, the CCP never intended to follow the Westren model, and fair enough, that's up to them. But all the while they have abused our appeasement and the greed of the corporate elite to fuel their own authoritarian, dictatorial oppressive regime. Trump saw this happen, and he stood up to it. People laughed at him at first, and the elites and the corporates and the swamp tried to stop him (because it crossed their personal gain). But people are getting it now. And we won't take it anymore.

The second biggest enemy to the CCP is big tech. They are in cahoot's with the communists because they are profiting of their Big FireWall, and they want to provide an profit from the technology that the CCP need to oppress their own people (and eventually the rest of the world).

Nice response. Thank you. We have always covered for the Red Chinese. From the murder of John Birch. to not allowing our marines to shoot at them in Korea, to hiding the Cultural Revolution. They have always walked all over us.
