Last month, I traveled to a McDonald’s in two separate countries – all in one day. In the morning, I was at a McDonald’s in the Caribbean. In the evening, I was at a McDonald’s in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The difference was striking.

The McDonald’s in the Caribbean was normal. People were ordering, eating food, chatting with one another. I didn’t have my camera, but it looked something like this:

In the Caribbean, you go to McDonald’s to eat food.

The McDonald’s in Fort Lauderdale had three televisions in the main serving area. One television had CNN, one had FOX and one had MSNBC. I didn’t have my camera, but it looked something like this:

tv mcd
In the US, you go to McDonald’s for political indoctrination.

The TV commentators were arguing with one another. Eventually, the patrons in the serving area began arguing; it was impossible to avoid, really. A disagreement broke out and I lost my appetite.

Why was there no television in the Caribbean McDonald’s, but there were three in the United States? Why are all the televisions in the US showing the news? Are they trying to keep the people informed or indoctrinated? I’m guessing the latter.

One thing is clear…America is under attack. The (((media))) wants to poison our minds. They want possession of our thoughts, to privatize our spirits. This is 1984, an Orwellian future that’s become the present.

Most Americans don’t realize that 24/7 public news is not common. In the US, the TV news is ubiquitous: at McDonald’s, the airport, the supermarket, etc. Conversely, most foreign countries are not subjected to this level of propaganda. And since most Americans do not own a passport or travel overseas, they’re unaware of this indoctrination tactic.

I worry for the nation. And while I support the surge in American nationalism, I think that we’ll be easy to manipulate. The more we stay confined to the United States, the easier it’ll be to fool us.

Memo to McDonald’s – I’m not loving it.

    An astute observation Ron, not something we particularly see here in the UK though. What we do have though is an increasingly biased BBC which is now completely run by the cultural marxists with their left wing agenda. Their reporters are so far biased to the left they are in danger of falling over! They escape the “fake news” tag by omission rather than fake. There are hundreds of events which show the strength of UK post our Brexit referendum they never publicise, awful incidents of no go areas and immigrant criminality in France, Sweden, Italy, Spain …. they don’t report, yet they will publicise accusations against Wilders and Le Pen and Farage but not about Fillon because he is a centrist left wing candidate in France. I do wonder though how they will report when Netherlands, France and Italy elect right wing Presidents as the majority population reject this madness. To return to MacDonalds, the only discussion you are likely to hear in the UK is about the latest on their Facebook pages or last nights reality TV. God help us!

    1. “What we do have though is an increasingly biased BBC which is now completely run by the cultural marxists with their left wing agenda.”

      I saw an episode of the BBC recently. Man, that was sad.No longer even thrying to entertain – it’s all social programming.

      1. I’m watching BBC News at the moment reporting on our government fiscal budget for the year. It’s nothing but attack attack despite the fact they have poured billions of £ into free healthcare, social welfare, education. But to do so we all have to pay a little more tax. You would think the earth had stopped rotating!!

      2. It reminds me of an abusive relationship. The abusive partner (the far left in this example) continually accuses the other partner of non-existent atrocities. But when the other partner decides to pick up and leave, the abuser cries foul.

    2. Good input of the BBC’s ignoring of Brexit. I think that eventually, they will try to do shutdowns of the internet (they already have in some ways). The freedom of speech is weakening their ability to control the people via a “one solution” narrative.
