You're half right.
Your Father has seeded Cinservatives with a manner to fight democrats.
But more importantly, he is pummeling the media.
They are the real enemy as your Father points out.
They have betrayed the people as watchdogs and protectors of individual freedoms against the corrupt government and business realms.
They are mostly whores self interested in ratings and popular following,
along with maintaining a never satiated degree of public influence.
Most of MSM is rotten to the core or paid to give opinion on corporate agendas all invested in Deep State.
I coined it Hypocronance.
