I’d say it started well before 2015. I think the media worship of Obama is when clown world really started accelerating. Virtually no coverage of any of his scandals, while claiming it a scandal free presidency. The blatant weaponization of government agencies. The lies being to told to Congress by top administration officials. Spying on reporters, while also claiming to be the most transparent administration in history. Trump just blew the lid off from it all. Honestly, how many people really thought that Trump’s claim in December 2016 that Trump Tower was wiretapped was an overstatement of fact at the time?

Wasn't it Obama that removed American's protection against propaganda from the US press?

I'm unsure if Obama had any role, but the AP changed its guidelines to abandon ethics for activism in 2011

HR 4310, also known as the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, was signed by President Obama on Jan. 2, 2013.

"The amendment — proposed by Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) and Adam Smith (D-Wash.) and passed in the House last Friday afternoon — would effectively nullify the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which explicitly forbids information and psychological operations aimed at influencing U.S. public opinion."

Immediately gave rise to the social media moguls becoming billionaires overnight.

The amount of "cooperation' between the three-letter agencies and social media platforms is only surpassed with the contracts given out to the likes of Google.

It's our own fault. We value comfort over liberty so we lost an entire republic.

This, things really started to go into full swing when the phrase "white privilege" started taking off was around 08-09 when I started seeing it on social media when I lived on there in my teens-early twenties, and now we can see what that shit scented flower has blossomed into

It was a slippery slope around that time and everything just accelerated into what it is now. Remember when you could watch comedians tell a joke and not give a shit about being politically correct?

Yeah the NYT did a political analysis of the left vs the right and how far left or right they leaned.

Left and right were pretty standard and within reach with some crossover until 2012.

When the lefts views basically shot left by magnitudes to be further left than the Scandinavian countries and bordering communism.

Is that when Bernie came around? I know it was Obamas 2nd election. Occupy Wallstreet?

I would say it started even before that, with W. Not going full conspiracy, but HOWEVER the towers fell, the shit that motherfucker put in place for our "SAFETY", theres that word again, which cost us a ton of FREEDOM. That shit set the wheels in motion for whats going on today.
