CNN’s headline story on the morning of Friday, November 25th put Dylann Roof back into the national spotlight. For those working hard to demonize anyone branded with the “ALT Right” or “White Nationalists” label, the timing couldn’t be more convenient.
The demonization of the “Alt Right/White Nationalists” group, has amped up since the election. I previously predicted that after the election a violent incident would be blamed on someone branded an Alt Right extremist. Their purpose in doing this would be to increase the public’s fear of domestic terror and to direct the public’s aggression towards the Alt Right. What I didn’t consider is that they might do this using an old event instead.
Dylann Roof fits the role of a White Nationalist demon perfectly. He’s what the mainstream media wants the public to think of when they think of the Alt Right, White Nationalism, or anything associated with Trump.
I believe that the media will make Roof the face of the Alt Right. The public will be reminded of the Dylann Roof narrative, and they’ll be lead to believe that under a Trump administration, stories like that of Dylann Roof will become common place.
To believe that the Dylan Roof’s of the world will run rampant under a Trump administration is a totally insane and irrational thing to believe. But that’s the purpose of demonization propaganda; to bypass all logic and reason, and appeal directly to fear and hate.
The media has found the face of their Alt Right demon.
