The Slippery Social Media Slope

Everyone reading who reads blogs, Tweets, timeline posts, or watches vlogs and the like is actively involved in social media of some sort. There is a difference between opinion and fact, truth, and lies. Right now there is a bunch of gray between what is reality and fantasy. My friends having some certainty and stability in the chaos of this life we are all leading is so necessary right now.

My opinion of Donald Trump is that he is a vile, evil, son of a bitch who has no empathy or care for anyone other than himself. Others would differ.

With all that being said we live in a time when it has been documented that he and other politicians live somewhere between true and false statements.

In the pandemic age we live in we need facts and we are getting them from public health professionals who have studied and prepared for a time like this.

When it comes to democracy making it easier for people to vote and participate is necessary for any nation to choose the right people to lead and hopefully serve. To spread lies about mail-in voting does great harm.

My friends the regulation or deregulation depending on the circumstances of social media is a slippery slope. Especially when it’s coming from a person who uses the technology to bully, intimidate, lie, and to undermine our society. When you are supposed to be the leader of the free world words matter and his words seem to do great harm to many.

I am concerned because without checking the facts what can be said on Twitter might as well be the gospel truth in the mind of those who choose not to research further and to get more information. All of this is scary and everyone who is a content creator of some sort has to stand up and speak out. For many, their livelihoods are at stake.

My friends, be vigilant, and use the tools you have to make your voice heard and seen.

  1. I don’t even care about Trump lies, I care about how the GOP and his supporters are all, his lies are fake. If that makes sense? He retweets things that have been constantly debunked, disproven or the person’s just been outright banned for inciting violence or they’ve already been for spreading false information. Their response is “Yeah, aint that the truth” and it’s not,lol

  2. Thank you for speaking your mind about Trump. I agree 100%. I have realized he is an evil person who, in my opinion, is just out for himself and is doing tremendous harm to the people of the US.
