“A Florida woman told police that she stabbed herself in the stomach with a kitchen knife because, “I’m tired of living in Trump’s country, I’m tired of Trump being president.”
Cops found the 46-year-old woman standing outside her residence in Palmetto Sunday, according to a police report. She had blood all over her legs, hands, and face, a cop noted.
When asked what was wrong, the woman lifted her shirt to reveal “three stab wounds on [her] stomach that were still bleeding.” She then told the patrolman she had “stabbed herself because she does not want to live in Trump’s country.”
The woman was subsequently transported by EMS workers to a local hospital “under trauma alert.”
Okay, maybe not 100% the media’s fault. Probably a large percentage of the blame has to go to the woman herself, who is obviously mentally ill.
But that doesn’t change the fact that the reason she stabbed herself was because she “didn’t want to live in Trump’s country anymore.”
Now, this woman’s life has probably not changed one bit due to Trump being in the White House instead of Obama. In other words, she hasn’t been directly affected by anything Trump has done over the past couple years.
It’s not like Trump’s many roving death squads ransacked her town and kidnapped her family. Trump has done nothing to this woman.
So why, all the sudden, would she find life in Trump’s America unbearable to the point that she’d plunge a kitchen knife into her stomach in an attempt to kill herself?
Because of the media’s coverage of Trump. Because of the contrived hysteria by Blue-Checked “journalists” on social media over Trump.
The Uniparty media’s endless negativity and 24/7 anti-Trump propaganda convinced this woman that America had become an unlivable hellhole of misery and pain.
The media pushed this already-unwell woman over the edge to the point of suicide.
The dishonest Uniparty media bleats on and on about “Trump’s Rhetoric!” making bad things happen in the country. Any time there’s a hate crime, it’s always blamed on “Trump’s rhetoric.”
What about the media’s rhetoric? What about the media’s propaganda and lies convincing a woman that life in Trump’s America is so horrific that her only option is to commit suicide?
The media has plenty of blood on its hands. In fact, I think going forward I’ll start documenting the instances where the media is at least partially responsible for real-world acts of violence–whether it’s convincing someone life isn’t worth living anymore because of Donald Trump, or convincing someone to go on a violent rampage against a group constantly demonized by the media (say, white people and Trump supporters in general). The media cannot continue getting away with being so reckless and irresponsible.
Fake News-driven media brainwashing has consequences. It has real-world consequences. People act on what they see on the news. Lots of people out there have no idea cable news is complete bullshit. They think it’s real. And the increasingly hysterical and apocalyptic tone of cable news in the Trump-era is pushing people over the edge. People out there think America has become the Fourth Reich under Trump, where black people are regularly lynched and gay people are being burned at stake (even though the reality is that virtually every major corporation is now lining up to adorn itself in rainbow colors and genuflect at the alter of the LGBT Movement during the Most Holy Pride Month.)
But the media doesn’t care that its Fake News has driven people crazy. The Uniparty’s various three-lettered media outlets are desperate to maintain their relevancy in the era of rising online digital media, and they will do or say anything no matter how repulsive, no matter how reckless. There is no collateral damage they will not accept.
They don’t even care if their Fake News drives people to kill themselves.
