Can't wait for the REAL FCC to obliterate them.

I know Trump's conviction and COVID relief is important. but monopolistic ownership of radio and TV and newspapers by right-wingers SPEWING SEDITIONIST LIES IN A CROWDED THEATER got. to. GO.

We've let them grab more and more of the minds of Americans over the years in the name of Free Speech, but it's time to put the brakes on the outright lies and manipulation.

So...Sinclair is still broadcasting radicalized terrorist propaganda?

make me some tea: So...Sinclair is still broadcasting radicalized terrorist propaganda?


Technically, no.

Their radical terrorist propaganda does radicalize terrorists, if that's what you meant to ask; but just as oxidizing agents cannot be oxidized, their radical terrorist propaganda itself is not, and cannot be, radicalized.

I don't even know what this means, but damn it, if Sinclair is just going to spout nonsense, so am I!

Crush them. De-platform them. Remove any and all licenses they have. RICO their corporations.

No mercy.

Wouldn't it be a shame if Sinclair, as well as News Corp, got hit with the Sherman Anti Trust Act?

I may be reaching my sister but she tried one last "what is your opinion on this????" regarding the barely reported ANTIFA demonstration in New York. I told her that one republican female said she was attacked and only she is talking about and...THEY DIDNT FARKING ATTACK THE GODDAMN CAPITOL OF THE UNITED STATES WITH THE INTENT TO ASSASSINATE POLITICIANS. So stop it with the bullshiat Trumpspeak of BSAB. I also showed my work that poked enough holes in the right-winger article she sent me to make her go "hmm ok :)"

Yeah I'm sending that to meme to her today lol

2021-01-16 5:38:01 AM  
How PISSED are the Republicans that real "Antifa" didn't turn up and rush the Trumper crowd? They were clearly relying on this as part of their overall strategy. The tiny number of cops who couldn't stop grandmas walking past? The repeated refusals of National Guard involvement? No other reinforcements until it was all way too late? Republicans thought they had this planned to look like an Antifa attack on patriot demonstrators until ... Antifa didn't turn up!

Literally, if Trump's plan had come off and Antifa folks had rushed the Trumpers, hundreds on both sides would have died, such was the tiny police presence. The cops would have been powerless. And the storming of the Capitol by the "patriots" would have come closer to succeeding.

Why did Trump fail? Because Antifa clearly have learned how to pick which fights they turn up to and when to just let their enemy make a huge mistake all on their own. Classic Art of War stuff. Well done to all the left activists who decided the best strategy was to stay home, it was a fantastic winning plan, and now the idiots still trying to pretend the attempted coup was anything but Trumpists are just looking stupider and stupider.

I'm not digging up the link now but I posted my own ideas about staying away and not interrupting Trumpers making serious mistakes and I expected some blowback on Fark but was pleasantly surprised and got none.

In recent years I've been disappointed by the young leftists for their lack of strategy, and also at times by their overreaction to what should just be "free speech" issues. When I was young our team didn't always get "free speech" in the media or wider debate, and I don't get why some modern lefties want to shut down as much speech as they do. Often, their campaigning to shut down speech like Milo Yiawhatshisname actually gave those farkwits their entire "careers": they were super controversial. They'd have been super ignored if the left had ignored them, they literally had nothing else to offer, none of the rightwingers who attended his speeches thought he was worth their while according to his internet reviews.

But last week showed a huge maturing by the left in America. Successful strategising delivers a bigger payoff than turning up and yelling or throwing fists. And the media around the world has been saturated with Trumpers making idiots of themselves with no assistance from the left, it's all their own fault. Magnificent outcome.

So well done millennial lefties, you've matured, you've learned, and you've already out-strategised Donald Trump and his intended finest moment has become the incident which made him commit to a transition even though he farking hated doing that. This is somewhat bizarrely the best moment since the young boomers ousted Nixon.

Yeah, think about that. This is the finest moment for young American lefties since the boomers ousted Nixon. Ha ha millennials, you've become what you hate!!!

/Gen X, we never achieved any sort of revolution but we got climate change meaningfully on the table and we didn't get in the way of progressive issues progressing

Once the majority of local news stations are owned by Sinclair, we're done.  With facebook misinformation, Fox News and the Sinclair lie distribution system, there will be no truth anymore.
 
2021-01-16 7:09:20 AM

I lied, I could be bothered bringing up the link to the thread....

https://www.fark.com/comments/1107065​2​/DC-Yo-MAGAts-no-guns-on-January-6?cpp​=1#new

I wrote "The one thing I'm NOT expecting to see is Trumpers behaving themselves. Anyone turning up is turning up to get arrested. Some will get violent, others will just be disorderly, and for what it's worth my preference is that any counter-protesters hang back and let these fools get tased by the cops. Biden doesn't need images of violent lefties attacking Trumpers overshadowing his inauguration, he's got enough shiat to clean up as it is."
