The Washington Post headline screamed:
Trump’s ugly and dishonest new TV ad shows he isn’t changing a thingI invite readers to view the ad and show me where it is ugly, racist, misogynist, nativist or any of the other pejoratives used by kneejerk reactionaries in Washington.
When it comes to ugly and dishonest, there is no better example than the Washington Post under the "ownership" of Jeff Bezos, who is absorbing the newspaper's massive losses as a means of obtaining influence in DC lest someone in the antitrust bureaucracy decides to go after Amazon.
Greg Sargent bylined what can only be described as a Hillary press release:
The new ad is filled with precisely the same sort of dark, dystopian themes and content — and even some of the same sort of grainy, dark footage depicting illegal immigrants as invaders — that marked one of the first ads he ran during the GOP primaries.Of course, illegal aliens are invading the country. They are here uninvited.
The daily drivel against Trump by the Washington Post reach boring months ago. They portray a man who can do no right.
More from Sargent's take:
Trump’s first general election ad depicts the main problems facing the country as illegal immigration and terrorism, featuring dark, grainy footage of illegal immigrants streaming into the country while vowing to “Make America Safe Again.”
In one respect, the new ad also goes further in its demagoguery than the original GOP primary ad did — it claims that the border is “open.” Broadly speaking, the new Trump ad echoes some of the ugliest elements of the picture Trump’s convention speech painted of what ails America and what must be done about it — a speech that may have further alienated some of the voter groups he needs to expand his appeal among if he is to turn around his slide.The real demagogue in this race is Hillary Clinton who portrays the nation under attack from a vast right wing conspiracy that wants to drag the nation back to the 19th century. Her real agenda is to sell out the nation for a few million bucks.
There really are two Americas -- the one that produces and builds things, and the confederacy of sloths who feed off them.
Guess which side the Bezos Post is on.
