How to Watch ‘Glee’ Season 2: The New York Times Interview
“What the fuck are you talking about?”
The New Yorker’s Matt Taibbi, a longtime critic of American culture, says in a video for the website that aired on Thursday.
“You know what else I’ve been saying?
I think the American mainstream is going to take over America in the next few years.
I don’t know if you’ve heard that but I think that we are going to be at a tipping point.”
Taibb is referring to the demographic shift from white men, a demographic that is expected to continue until the country reaches the point of no return.
And, of course, the American public is aghast.
“The reason this is such a fucking scandal,” Taibbs said, “is because the mainstream media are now the real enemy.
They are the enemies of the American people.”
“You know how you go through life?
You go through a lot of shit.
You have bad days.
You get to a point where you can’t take it anymore.
So you get to the point where, you know, you say, ‘I’m gonna get out of here,'” he continued.
“And then you go to work and you don’t have any work.
So then you think, ‘Okay, I’ll just keep on going.
I’ll keep going.
You know what?
This is gonna work out for me.
I’m gonna make it through this.’
And it doesn’t.
So the American populace is in a pretty good place.
They have their lives under control.”
But the mainstream, it seems, isn’t so certain.
Taibbs says the mainstream press has been “hiding behind this big lie” that the country is “at a tipping-point” and the media should stop covering the election.
“Look, the whole reason we are talking about this is because the media is the enemy of the people.
You can’t cover it,” he said.
“They can’t talk about it.
They can’t say it.
And so we’re talking about it, because the people are fed up with this fucking shit.
And that’s why it’s so fucking important.”
