WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: What it’s like to be caught in the middle of a media firestorm

Ancient Chinese wisdom says, “May you live in interesting times.” We live in interesting times. But I personally live in really interesting times.

Few (if any) conservative media personalities have ever experienced 48 hours like I just experienced. I just lived in the eye of a hurricane.

It all started with my Newsmax TV show. I took a call from a viewer who wondered why Jews vote Democrat when it’s clearly against their self- interest. And then …

… I stepped into history.

I answered (let me paraphrase) by reporting a few simple facts: I’m a Republican Jew who loves and appreciates President Donald Trump. Trump loves Israel. And Israelis love Trump like no president in the history of America.

I said Trump is wildly popular in Israel — so popular that they are naming towns, train stations and even a soccer team after him.

Folks, these are facts. Why would they create a media firestorm?

I also said (off the cuff) that Trump is so popular in Israel that they treat him like “the king of the Jews.” And then came the clincher. As I’ve said a thousand times, it’s time for Jews to vote Republican because Trump is the greatest president ever for the Jewish people.

The president watched my TV show. He tweeted out his thanks to me, as well as an exact quote of my words in a series of tweets.

That’s when the liberal media lost their minds. That message obviously scares them to death. Clearly, they’re even more scared of that message in the hands of a Jewish communicator who speaks with evangelical zeal about bringing Jews to the GOP promised land.

Most of all, they’re scared that Trump brought my message to the attention of the world.

President Trump tweeted out his fourth tweet of the day about me. For the second night in a row, he was watching my TV show. He thanked me again, but this time he included a 3½-minute video from my show. So far, it’s been watched 1.4 million times (and counting).

No wonder liberals are so scared.

It all comes down to this for liberals: 1) If you can’t beat your opposition, make it personal. Destroy, malign, slander and demonize. 2) The truth to liberals is like a Christian cross to a vampire. So if someone exposes the truth, by any and all means, use “weapons of mass distraction.” Change the subject.

I’m a witness to their ruthless strategy. From that moment on, all hell broke loose. The whole media world exploded with rage. At me.

I was the main subject on CNN, MSNBC and the evening news. I was featured in the Washington Post, Esquire, on every liberal website and on the cover of the New York Daily News. The liberal media tried to destroy the messenger (me).

They failed. Just as they always do with President Trump. After their attacks, he always goes up in the polls. It’s simple. The hateful liberal media bring attention to Trump, which makes more Americans tune into Trump. And once they experience Trump, they like him and agree with him.

The media did the exact same thing for me. Millions of new viewers. My fan mail quadrupled overnight — all of them thanking me. Rush Limbaugh quoted me and thanked me in front of his 15 million radio listeners. “Wayne Root” was the No. 1 name trending in the world at Twitter.

Thank you, liberal media. God bless you. Keep attacking.

My only request is: Let’s engage. Instead of slandering me behind my back, why not debate face-to-face? Scared? Afraid I’ll win the debate? Cat got your tongue?

I thought so.
