“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.” George Orwell, 1984
The big story about Trump’s visit to Poland was a video of the Polish President’s wife purportedly snubbing Trump by not shaking his hand. It was a statement against his misogyny. You can tell this was made by Americans because this is the level of political discourse there. Poland? Where’s that? Warsaw? What? Why? Who cares? Let’s manipulate this video to further our agenda of laughing some more at our idiot President and show that the world laughs with us. This is how to educate Americans on the dangers of corporate-run media so when they watch it they will become critical thinkers. American ignorance about international affairs is why the world laughs. Not at Trump but at you because you’re the reason he’s President.
This was not a protest, no matter how much you would like it to be. As a matter of fact, none of you have ever heard of her before this so how can you possibly have an opinion about her motives? Here is her story. Mrs. Duda was an ordinary German teacher in a public high school before her husband was elected President. Since then, she has not made a single public comment about anything. Certainly not about the discrimination of women, and women’s right to control their lives and bodies during the big women’s marches a few months back. The fact is that her husband is a puppet and she is Mrs. Puppet and they are no different from any politician who has sold their soul for power at the price of silence. Granted, she didn’t run for office as did not Melania but everyone is complicit.
I knew it couldn’t have been a statement as Poles are VERY aware of their image especially in the presence of world leaders and this is THE world leader, like it or not. Mrs. Duda was not ignoring or snubbing Trump. She would rather have the earth swallow her whole than allow a faux pas in diplomatic relations. You can bet she was very well versed in how to behave during a Presidential visit and wanted to make a good impression. The etiquette is this. In Poland, you always shake a woman’s hand first. As simple as that. That’s it. That’s all of it. That’s the entire story. It’s too bad Trump’s handlers didn’t tell him that. But look how that image was invented. Clever, but your perception was managed and it shaped your opinion. THAT is what is frightening. How easy it was. Orwell was right.
Try as I might, I could not find a photo of her actually shaking Trump’s hand. Only as part of the entire video. Not only that, it was difficult to find the ENTIRE video. It is outside the accepted narrative. Mrs. Duda is part of a government who is waging war on everyone especially women while she stays silent. The only images of her that you see are her being surrounded by children in schools and orphanages. So portraying her as a feminist hero courageously protesting discrimination is truly laughable. But not as laughable as ignorance disguised as truth.
Makes you wonder about all the images you see, right?
Here is the ENTIRE video. Context is everything.
And I had to go to FOX to find this…
