My opinion on Donald Trump’s media attention

To the BBC, NBC and major Western news outlets.

Donald Trump’s populist Republican campaign for the US presidency started in June, 2015. Since then he has became the frontrunner for the nomination, with several other ones dropping out, like Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina and most recently, Marco Rubio. I personally feel, as well as many others, that Donald Trump has been given a unfairly high percentage of the airtime, despite his far-right-wing ideals (e.g banning of Muslims entering America) He has effectively split the nation, with one March 11, 2016 rally never taking place due to repeated violent incidents, with people holding up Bernie Sanders campaign flyers and yelling at each other. (USNews report, March 11, 2016 7:52PM) His vulgar attacks on other people and candidates (including Barack Obama and Ted Cruz) seem to have gave him more airtime in the US, which he seems to want so he will gain more supporters.

He is gaining airtime at the expense of other candidates, and his endless “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” chants mesmerise unwitting supporters to his campaign, and again puts the other candidates at a disadvantage. In fact through November 30, 2015, Donald trump had more airtime (238 mins) than the entire Democratic field (123 minutes) (Donald Trump News Dominance Report – December 31, 2015)

He asserts propaganda to win. This is the same strategy as Adolf Hitler used, back in 1933. But, all of this does not matter to me.

As a left-wing UK citizen, I do not care who wins the US election, even if it is Donald Trump. I do not care which party wins, Democratic, Republican or a third party. I do not care who ends up in the White House and I will never care who ends up in the White House. If Trump wants to oppress Muslims as president I do not care.

The world is very different than it was in 1933, and Europe, despite US influence, is a lot more independent now with the EU, and has it’s own issues to worry about (e.g Putin). So I do not care. No matter how much pressure he puts on the EU, no matter how much trade is reduced, and no matter how many laws are passed reducing American democracy (which is already pretty bad), they will never bow to US pressure.

So us, the BBC, BSkyB, ITV, Al Jazeera and other news channels have nothing to worry about. I hope you, the people reading this, don’t either.

Neophyte OUT.
