Forget about the threat of socialism or even communism; the real threat comes from those who want to foist idiocracy down our throats. Merriam-Webster defines idiocracy as a "form of government in which a county or territory is run by fools." And, the madness of anti-government protests have swept the country since the election of President Trump indicate that the fools are hell bent on taking over. The opposition certainly has a right to voice opinions, but only idiots would go to the extremes that the Never Trump movement has gone since Mr. Trump took office.

And if you don't think the media is wittingly or unwittingly culpable in distorting the truth in order to promote a brand new brand of socialist anarchy, think again.

Instead of reporting the facts of a news story the way a reporter with integrity used to do in day, they prefer to put a spin on their reportage. And, more likely than not, the will spin the fact to suit ideologically liberal notions of how things should be. It's about opinion disguising itself as news, not from a rogue website on the internet, but from CBC, ABC, NBC, CNN, New York Times and the Washington Post. Watching the network news at 5:30 has become laughable. Idiocracy, indeed!
