Emotions are powerful feelings that can be used as weapons against the weak and uninformed. Unfortunately, when these emotions are not kept in check during times of crisis, they can lead to bad decisions being made, which gives way to destruction.
The hosts of “After Dark,” along with returning guest journalist Heather Robinson delve into the art of emotions and how the media is seemingly using war pictures of the sufferings of Ukrainians to elicit emotions of the American public. The end game is to get America further involved in the Russian Ukraine conflict with boots on the ground. This would be a monumental mistake, for no good would come from it. Only death and bloodshed would come to America should we be guided by emotions to enter into a war where we have no interest. We understand that the horrific pictures being seen on television and social media are heart-wrenching, but we simply can not allow that to be the emotional crutch to foolishly sacrifice American lives.
