Taking The Red Pill: For Some, The Truth Is Hard To Swallow


Just about everybody has seen the pivotal scene from the Matrix, where Morpheus gives Neo a critical decision. Taking the blue pill means living in blissful ignorance, but taking the red pill brings the truth.

This scene is eerily both prescient and timely, considering the world we are living in. The mainstream media has given us a lot of blue pills. CBS cooked up a goose of a coronavirus testing line. NBC edited Bill Barr’s words to make him look bad. ABC killed Amy Robach’s Jeffrey Epstein research and story. Buzzfeed produced the phony dossier, and CNN reporters have had to resign over false stories. Isn’t it interesting that they all share a problem with the truth.

Elon Musk recently posted a tweet that reads “Take the red pill.” This comes on the heels of him threatening to leave California over Gavin Newsom’s draconian quarantine regulations that have punted the lockdown into August. Jon Cooper, of Team Joe Biden tweeted back “Take the red pill and shove it, Elon.” 

The truth hurts, but it’s worth it.
