There are most definitely some sick people in the world. But, they're usually not the people that the media tells you they are.

Often, it's the media themselves that put out so much propaganda into the ether that they themselves have become the villains of America.

TIME magazine released the image of their July 2, 2018 issue which depicts President Trump standing over a crying migrant child with the headline, "Welcome to America." What the headline should've said is, "Welcome to America. We made it this way with our propaganda."

Here's the cover, with TIME actually showing how the original picture of the crying child was turned into the finished product:

Sick. The TIME article talking about what the U.S. once was is riddled with inaccuracies. Everything from claiming the U.S. was founded as a democracy to Trump taking the country further and further away from humanity was self-righteously written by author Karl Vick as if he were some kind of patriot.

Here's an excerpt from the article:

For the first 240 years of U.S. history, at least, our most revered chief executives reliably articulated a set of high-minded, humanist values that bound together a diverse nation by naming what we aspired to: democracy, humanity, equality. The Enlightenment ideals Thomas Jefferson etched onto the Declaration of Independence were given voice by Presidents from George Washington to Barack Obama.

Of course TIME referenced their messiah, former president Barack Obama. I didn't know this, but apparently Obama breathed new life into the Declaration of Independence somehow.

What do all of you think? Has TIME gone too far with the new cover?
