I knew all mainstream news were one and the same with a tiny bit of shilling for one side. But holy fuck. Seeing this shit is terrifying, and they know it. They have got news stations around the US (abc, cbs, fox, cnn, etc) so the top levels just must have said something along the lines of

"They're catching on that we're shilling. Quick, how do we make them not feel like sheep for a couple more years?"

and then

"Oh! I know! Let's talk about oUr DeMoCrAcY when we don't get our way! It's such an original and hot-topic issue that's baseless at the same time!"

No fucking wonder everyone was just spouting out about "MUH DEMOCRACY!!! TRUMP/HILLARY BAD, MY CANDIDATE GOOD!" like some shitty middle school debate club. They were all spoon-fed this notion that they are all threatened by the big bad. There is no fucking doubt in my mind anymore that both parties are the same fucking people, and we're being played for extra cushy house seats and vacations while nothing gets done. Can't wait to see how the future plays out. That'll be a fun fucking ride to witness when I'm 60.

Not to mention how damn near everyone sucks the government's cock off when they get their way. It's almost like their history teachers didn't do their fuckin jobs.

Whenever they say how important protecting "our democracy " is they don't mean something that reflects the general population's desire, it's just the politically correct buzzword for maintaining the self enriching power structure they've built up for themselves. Corporate media benefits from it too, and if you want to dig deeper then the argument can be made Operation Mockingbird was a success.

History major here, hard to fault the individual teachers since they're products of academic institutions that wouldn't dare look at the true policy makers/"great men" of history, which are not presidents/elected officials but rather the bankers/global elites who initially funded them into those positions. A fair amount of contemporary history can be boiled down to a select few rich people with not so dissimilar interests throwing their money around at shills to get their way while tricking the general population into voting against their own best interests. It's the same elites who have traditionally played a major role in keeping these academies afloat. Research into their involvement in contemporary historical events is stigmatized as conspiratorial since a lot of the theses comes from outside the institutions.
