Brian Williams is leaving MSNBC and gives a stark warning about the United States and the condition of its citizens. Is it true? Not necessarily. What we need to focus on is what’s next. Politicians have less of their constituents’ beliefs in mind and more of their own. That’s not the sustainable way forward.
Williams said, “After 28 years of peacock logos on much of what I own, I’ve decided to jump into the great unknown without a net. For the first time in my 62 years, my primary concern is for my country.”
People in this country need to grow up. Not everything is sensationalized, yet most people are weak and freak out over the things that don’t necessarily matter. When significant changes come, they can’t handle them. The United States isn’t lost. The U.S. has constantly been changing, but it’s been a long time since it did. COVID-19, massive riots, and an election threw the country on its head all at one time and caused division. If politicians knew what was good for the country, they would return it to normal.
Williams continued, “I believe in this place, and I yield to no one, but the darkness on the outskirts of town has spread to the main roads, highways, and neighborhoods. It’s now at the neighborhood bar and bowling alley, the school board, and the grocery store, and it needs to be acknowledged and addressed.”
He’s not wrong. Accountability at all levels of political office has largely been lost and politicized. Holding your account has to come first before you can ever go after someone else. Democrat’s habit of letting their party slide and going after Republicans, and the Republicans do the same.
“Grown men and women who swore an oath to our Constitution and were elected by their constituents, with college degrees I could only dream of, have decided to join the mob and become something they are not, hoping that we will forget who they were. They’ve decided to burn it all down while we’re inside, which should frighten you as much as it does an aging volunteer fireman.”
First of all, college degrees don’t come with leadership skills. The college has turned into social programs to create activists rather than educate students.
Tulsi Gabbard, former Hawaii Congresswoman, related Congress to high school, and it seems that she was more correct than you may have thought.
Williams has been criticized for exaggerating stories, but he seems correct on this one.
