Why I belatedly wrote Chapter 29
In August 2020, I initially completed writing my book and then commenced looking for a traditional publisher for my book. At the same time however, I was becoming more and more concerned with developments in America reported by a leftist agenda driven global Mainstream Media (MSM), which one could easily dub, the global Marxist Stream Media.
Particularly disturbing was how the global MSM portrayed the US summer riots of 2020 as mainly peaceful, even when from video evidence, cities burned as MSM journalists amidst this devastation claimed that demonstrations by violent Marxist entities such as Black Lives Matter (BLM), Antifa and Freedom Road Socialist Organisation (FRSO) were mostly peaceful! The latter in fact, was responsible for sparking the violence in late May 2020 in Minneapolis in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death. See YOUTUBE or RUMBLE. For me, this evoked eerie historic parallels between modern-day America and the death throes of Weimar Germany in late 1932 to early 1933, when Hitler’s Brown Shirt thugs or Sturmabteilung (Storm Troopers) and Mao Tsedong’s Red Guards in the Chinese Cultural Revolution from 1966-76 ran rampant.
Then, the aftermath of the November 2020 election with its obvious and rampant fraud apparent to anyone willing to open their eyes and not believe the leftist agenda driven narrative of the global MSM. However, the tipping point for me writing Chapter 29 was America’s “Reichstag” moment of Wednesday January 6th 2021; an eerie parallel to the Reichstag (German Parliament) Fire of late February 1933 just a month following Hitler’s rise to power in a then minority government. After watching and listening to the lies and distortions promulgated by the Global MSM, I sought to ascertain the truth from the independent media “The Epoch Times,” of whom I had already been listening to on their various YouTube channels for ten or so months before January 6th. One of many dubious claims of the global MSM they quickly quashed was of Trump supposedly inciting the riot, given the fact that the breach was already well underway before he completed his address. Hence, if they lied about this, what else have they been lying about?? As Chapter 29 reveals; PLENTY MORE!
The Epoch Times were founded by Falun Gong practitioners who fled China for America on account of the heinous oppression perpetrated upon them by the CCP since July 20, 1999. Now ironically, in the “free” country of America, their multi-cultural staff report the truth in the face of an ideologically driven mass-media of pack journalism, which mirrors in so many respects, that of Berlin and Moscow of the 1930s, and indeed, modern-day Beijing. Mainstream media inevitably use the old foil of portraying them as far-right, even though “All Sides Media” rates them as “Lean Right, though perhaps close to Center.” (See https://www.allsides.com/news-source/epoch-times-media-bias)
Moreover, after years of studying Communism and National Socialism, and viewing with my own eyes, almost two metric tons of human hair at the Auschwitz Concentration Camp Museum in Poland in mid-2005, I do not require an agenda driven pack global media, masquerading as diverse free media, telling me what’s far-right. On the other hand, to reiterate, feigned incognisance of far-left accountability by global MSM reporters, literally amidst the burning and devastation of the 2020 summer riots, claiming that such “protesters” were mostly peaceful, is breathtaking. As is their synonymous and inexorable hypocrisy.
As such, one of the most important points the reader should take from Chapter 29 “Dietrich and Ruth and their Times Relevance for America in 2020-21 — Lessons of History,” is to start listening to news from media such as The Epoch Times independent of the global MSM and then draw his or her own conclusions. Up until the outbreak of the Wuhan virus, I had listened exclusively to global MSM for my entire life. Then until the US November 2020 election, I listened to both, but gradually became more and more disillusioned with the entire global MSM, which included France 24 and the German Deutsche Welle English language News which I had watched for years during breakfast before going to work. After Friday November 6th however, with their dubious and dismissive insistence of “no evidence” for electoral fraud, their obsequious covering for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in relation to its cover-up of its role in the Wuhan virus outbreak and their tacit approval of leftist violence, I reiterate their credibility on par with media coming out of Berlin and Moscow of the 1930s, and indeed, modern-day Beijing.
In concluding, I would ask the reader to consider this. Before Trump decided to run for President in 2015, it seemed Trump was hardly hated by the media — certainly not to ribald extent that seemed to explode once he announced his intention to run for president. Indeed, in a glowing comment to his 2015 book “Trump: The Art of the Deal”, “The New York Times” now one of the most virulent of the leftist Trump hating global MSM, of whom I dub “Pravda on the Hudson” wrote:
“Trump makes one believe for a moment in the American dream again.”
Dare I ask; “Why is this so???”
All the best and may God Bless you all.
