Mainstream Media Love the Alternative Right (Originally Untitled) Written Thursday 1st December 2016 (Aged 41)

Mainstream Media Love the Alternative Right

the mainstream media
love the alternative right
or as i say, just the right
read into that what you will
is this white power
with a show reel?
you can feel the tide rising
and it is flooding in
years of liberalism and progression
destined to drown
and all those media outlets
fawn over these,
right wing ‘commentators’
what can we –
do to challenge their obnoxious views
do we out debate them
or just invite them into our homes
or just shake their hands
enjoy this sunday morning –
political programme
the audience is grand,
the media are voyeurs
and show no desire to challenge
my heart, forever sinking
when did comprehension die?
when and when did we lose critical thinking?




James Garratt – Thursday 1st December 2016
