After CNN tracked down and forced the creator of a gif portraying Trump beating up the CNN logo, the internet united against them to create multiple memes and compilations of gifs that portray… well… Trump beating CNN. From the classic scene in the Karate Kid to random clips of wrestling matches, internet users spent their time to create mash-ups and compilations that are certain to make the Left (or at least CNN) completely irate.
Multiple pro-Trump content creators such as Mike Cernovich, InfoWars, Based Patriot and others spent their time to do the very thing Reddit user “HanA**holeSolo” did times 100. And the best part is that CNN can’t “mafia” their way out of this one.
Like I said in the previous article, CNN wrote a story on how they tracked down the Reddit user and forced him to apologize at the risk of having his identity be made public (an insanely dumb move on their part). And the internet took notice of this. The internet, a place where millions of people go to share, read, and watch content largely felt that the aforementioned Reddit user’s rights to freedom of speech had been violated. In retaliation, the internet proceeded to absolutely tear into CNN.
And while CNN may be able to bully an individual into silence, they can’t bully the masses into silence. They can’t track down every single person that creates these things, and even if they could, it becomes less threatening to say “we will reveal these millions of people’s identity” as opposed to “we will reveal your single identity”. When it’s a lot of people doing this stuff, CNN doesn’t have the intimidation factor. Every single person that created these gifs and compilations is darn proud of the work they did and have no problem if CNN were to try to bully them.
That’s because CNN DOESN’T HAVE ANY POWER OVER THE MASSES! You see, this goes back to the whole Fake News issue. CNN and the MSM in general no longer have a monopoly on people’s thoughts and information. With the internet superhighway being as powerful as it is with as much information as it has, cable news and large news organizations no longer have a “toll booth” of information. That is to say, they no longer are the only people that can give out information to large masses of people.
One of the reasons Trump is so popular is because he stays connected with We The People through the use of Twitter. That’s one of the advantages Trump has over Reagan. Reagan’s only means to delivering news to people was through the press and with the hopes that they wouldn’t severely twist his words. But Trump has a direct line with the people. He can call out Fake News for what they are immediately.
And Trump isn’t the only source of information out there on the internet. There are multiple conservative organizations and even Facebook, Reddit and Twitter users that have a power that people of previous generations were limited to: the power of true information. They can now find out whether what the MSM says is true or not (mostly not) and whether people in the government like Obama and Hillary are telling the truth or not (again, they mostly lie).
And when the MSM is exposed for bullying a person into silence, the internet has the power to utterly destroy the MSM. No one wants their freedom of speech taken away from them. Particularly when the reason for taking it away was simply because of a joke or having a different opinion from the Left. The internet knows this and will fight back against the Left if they have to.
But with these compilations, memes and mash-ups, it just goes to show how strong the bond between Trump and his base is. I can’t even begin to count how many different clips I’ve seen of Trump beating up the CNN logo in these mash-ups. A couple of them only last a minute and a half, while another (the InfoWars one) lasted a full 4 minutes. It’s clear that the internet is very creative and very much against what CNN did against the Reddit user they bullied into silence.
And so, they used their power of content creation to decimate CNN for their actions by showing multiple gifs of Trump “fighting and destroying” them. And it’s truly a blessing that this whole thing happened. What I mean by that is that CNN’s reputation is likely on the verge of total collapse. Yes, many people stopped trusting them for a while, but this is a whole different thing. What CNN did was a clear violation of a citizen’s first amendment rights, and millions of people didn’t like that.
Last month, they were exposed by Project Veritas as b.s.-ing the country with the Russia narrative. And in less than a week into July, an even bigger scandal breaks out about CNN. This might set them on the path to irrelevance and maybe even bankruptcy. If people don’t like CNN, don’t watch it and think they are nothing but bullies, CNN is in massive trouble. And the most ironic part of it all is the fact that that’s a Leftist tactic: destroy the reputation of your opponent and separate them from their base. They’ve been trying this on Trump since the campaign began, but now, CNN might just fall victim to their own tactics. To their own weapons.
God knows precisely what He’s doing. He’s using evil’s own weapons against them to defeat them. He knows what CNN’s destiny is. He knows whether this will be the beginning of the end for them or if they will somehow manage to come back from this and own the narrative once again. He will use this time to bring people closer to Him and He will use the internet to achieve that.
Remember: God is in control. Nothing is a surprise to Him. He knew what CNN was going to do to that Reddit user and He knew the backlash they would receive from their actions.
