Amid the media’s doom-and-gloom narrative, there seems to be little room for any sort of good news these days.
That’s because positivity doesn’t sell. If everything was great, and there were no daily conflicts, what in the world would the folks over at CNN talk about? Whatever subject that may be would certainly not be as compelling as Americans murdering one another over political biases, ergo, it wouldn’t rope in as many viewers, and that would cause the network’s stock to drop. Advertisers would walk away without this blood, lust, and anger-centric programming to keep them hooked, and the world might actually be a better place.
But CNN and others have chosen a different path – one that exploits our mental and emotional dependence on fear, hate, and anger. That is why they attempt to turn President Trump’s socioeconomic critiques of cities like Baltimore into a racial issue: Because the anger you feel about it releases chemicals in your brain that make you more likely to keep watching, and make CNN a whole lot more money.
But, after that President’s tweet regarding the very real issues in the Maryland city, something incredible happened, and the mainstream media isn’t going to show it to you.
The trash cleanup Scott Pressler organized in West Baltimore on Monday wasn’t a political event, even if he was inspired by the back and forth between Trump and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) about the terrible conditions in some parts of the city,
Scott Presler’s Twitter account reveals that he spent two years of his life “working to defeat Hillary,” and he also plans to help re-elect President Donald Trump in 2020.
“[It is] not a Trump rally; this is not about Rep. Cummings; This is simply about Americans stepping up to help Americans,” Presler told Fox News.
Scott’s determination was not in vain, either.
Presler and some 170 volunteers descended on the city bearing trash bags and shovels. By the end of the eight-hour session, the group had collected 12 tons of trash.
“It’s always been like really trashy and like I showed the before picture what we were dealing with,” one woman in the neighborhood said in a video posted on Presler’s Twitter account. “I’m elated. I really am. I’m really happy. I want to cry but I’m not a cryer so I’ll just keep smiling.”
How much is 12 tons of trash? Enough to relocate 857 pounds to each floor of the 28-story CNN Center building in Atlanta, Georgia.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
