The media reaction to it all has been striking, what the Columbia Journalism Review called “a Murrow moment.” It’s not unusual to see news stories describe him as “erratic” without attribution to an opponent. The “fact checks” of his falsehoods continue to pile up in staggering numbers, far outpacing those of Mrs. Clinton. And, on Sunday, the CNN “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter called upon journalists and opinion makers to challenge Mr. Trump’s “dangerous” claims that the electoral system is rigged against him. Failure to do so would be unpatriotic, Mr. Stelter said. Trump Is Testing the Norms of Objectivity in Journalism, by Jim Rutenberg, Mediator Blog, NYT, August 7, 2016. [Links in original].But Rutenberg [Tweet him] ultimately excuses this conduct, claiming:
This, however, is what being taken seriously looks like. As [NYT "senior editor for politics" Caroline] Ryan [Tweet her] put it to me, Mr. Trump’s candidacy is “extraordinary and precedent-shattering” and “to pretend otherwise is to be disingenuous with readers…”It may not always seem fair to Mr. Trump or his supporters. But journalism shouldn’t measure itself against any one campaign’s definition of fairness. It is journalism’s job to be true to the readers and viewers, and true to the facts, in a way that will stand up to history’s judgment. To do anything less would be untenable.But why is Trump’s candidacy so “extraordinary and precedent-shattering?”Rutenberg repeatedly sneers at “nationalism” during his article. For any non-Western people, though, nationalism is the norm. Why shouldn’t a national leader privilege his own citizens? Isn’t that the entire point of government?The Trump candidacy, as VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow has repeatedly said, serves as a wrecking ball. But it also serves as a kind of spotlight, revealing horrifying truths we suspected but didn’t really know for sure.And one of the most important ones we now know is that journalists are really no different from activists. Reporters are practically part of Hillary Clinton’s campaign team.Their hatred of Trump is not motivated purely by their scorn of The Donald as a man. It’s their hatred of what he represents – namely, the historic American nation, the core population of the country which is being deliberately dispossessed and disenfranchised because of mass immigration.VDARE.com stand virtually alone in explicitly giving voice to true Americans' interests. But we cannot do it without the support of our readers.The New York Times has time to run hit pieces on Donald Trump supporters, trying to whip up mobs because these angry American citizens occasionally have the temerity to swear or express their scorn of the Lying Press. The press does not denounce the widespread violence directed against Trump supporters. Indeed, they practically encourage it.What this election has shown is that the Lying Press and the political class know exactly what they are doing. They support mass immigration because it hurts the traditional American nation, which they see as an enemy. The Main Stream Media simply serves as the mouthpiece of the hostile occupying government. They are hostile political activists and enemies which need to be overcome if the American nation is to survive.And in order to overcome, we need your help.What we face now is a media war. And as it’s often been said, in war, good generals study tactics but great generals study logistics.We’ve at VDARE.com have gotten good at tactics. Especially with the Trump candidacy—but even before it—we see VDARE.com talking points entering the mainstream. Our social media presence has exploded. We’ve had a powerful impact in mainstream culture, even being featured at the Republican National Convention’s Twitter feed. We’ve expanded our content and programing, the number of people reading our website has dramatically increased, and we’re hosting real world gatherings all around the country.The enemy Main Stream Media knows we are a force to be reckoned with.But in the end, we are limited by resources and logistics. We have been cut off from some of the major foundations. We are no longer allowed to get Amazon commissions after the Southern Poverty Law Center ($PLC to VDARE.com) and the Washington Post joined forces to get us kicked off. We are completely dependent on the donations of ordinary patriots.
The good news is one dollar you send us will go farther at VDARE.com than it will anywhere else. Everything you send us will be converted into the intellectual ammunition the patriotic American resistance needs as we continue this intellectual war. And with the growth we’ve seen over the last year, the potential we have for the future is truly remarkable.However, we can only do this with your help. We need you to give generously, to give whatever you can, ideally, to convince others to give as well. Because unless we can secure our supply routes in the form of a steady stream of income for writers and content providers, the war effort is going to stop dead in its tracks.And make no mistake–this is a war. As Patrick Henry once said, “Gentlemen may cry peace, peace, but there is no peace. The war has already begun!”And it’s going to get far worse for the American people unless we can push through immigration restriction right now and take advantage of this historic opportunity.This is a time of crisis. And we need you. We need you like we’ve never needed you before. If you do nothing, our enemies, your enemies, those people in the press who are increasingly comfortable with identifying as your enemies, will win.Don’t let that happen.
