All republicans and news outlets who supported the Big Lie should be chopped up into a thousand pieces, pureed into a fine slurry, then heavily salted, and finally shot into deep space in a capsule marked 'Traitor' in 100 different languages. Only then can the healing truly begin.

We can only hope.  I'm ready for a nice steady, boring administrator who gets shiat done.

At least it sounds like he's for increasing the budget for deep space utilization and exploration.

I care because these networks create an alternate reality in which my fellow Americans reside, entirely disconnected from actual events. These Americans then act on their distorted view of reality, which collides with actual reality in dangerous ways. For example, belief in this alternate reality can compel these distorted-reality-americans to commit acts of terrorism as some of them did on January 6.

6:39am: Fox Business guest Bob Unanue, a Trump supporter and the CEO of Goya Foods, says "a war is coming," and claims the 2020 US presidential election was a vast conspiracy meant to usher in "the dawn of a new world order." He also falsely says Trump won 80 million votes (in fact, Trump only won 74 million, to Biden's 81 million). Fox host Maria Bartiromo does not challenge him on any of these fronts.

Because the roughly 74M people who voted for the POS ex-POTUS tune in regularly to them? It's actually kind of scary.

Nah, that's just Chris Wallace. Him and Shep Smith were always the more reasonable voices on the network. I wonder how much longer Wallace will last if OAN and Newsmax continue to eat into Fox's market share.

Being aware of propaganda's content is the best way to fight the propaganda?

Knowing what BS the treason-weasels are being fed can help warn before things like 6 Jan happen?

Beyond that, IDK.  The article was so watered down I couldn't tell if it started off as urine or pilsner...

No, don't give them the insanity defense. This is all calculated. Its purely for profit and in my mind that makes it worse. It's reality tv and it's being packaged as legitimate news. Between this and the destruction of the education system, it's no wonder this country is slipping into 3rd world status.
 
2021-01-22 6:25:58 AM  
This is why we will never have unity.

So Biden just needs to drag his nutz on their faces, for the next two years.

Rapmaster2000: Opening Car Door For Wifegate!


Out of all the stupid in the article, I think that one takes the cake. I realise being courteous and kind isn't the Republican way of doing things, but seriously? Next thing they'll get mad at will be when Biden tells uh,Biden how much he loves her. Oh,the horror.

Because millions of easily-led sheeple watch this crap.

There is no reason why this filth should be allowed to litter the people's airwaves.

Seriously, no snark.  Big news agency says X.  X may be exaggerated or a flat out lie.  People watch it because they want to here X. They aren't going to listen to me (or you) because it's what we're saying is contradictory to X.

So I say again.  Why do we care?  It changes nothing.

Can't we just have a 1 month period where we don't have to deal with these idiots? After 4 years of fighting idiocracy, we won. I don't want to fix these morons right now, I'd rather let reality soften them up a little but.

On the flip side, CNN was at a very creepy level of gushiness about the whole thing.   I'm thrilled Biden is president, but CNN was making it weird.

Reality has a Liberal bias. Hell, Richard Nixon once floated the idea that Walter Cronkite was a Communist after Cronkite started reporting on the Watergate scandal.

Opposition research. It is best to know what kind of shiat it being flinged, even if it's difficult to deflect it. Any edge that can be gained in this fashion shouldn't be wasted.

I can't find pics or video but I'm pretty sure I saw Joe getting out of the limo, walking around to the other side and opening the door for his wife at the inauguration.

Liberals are too tolerant. Lincoln proved this by letting the racist south off to tend to there farms and continue on with their racist behavior without consequence after the civil was. It was left to fester then and it continues to bear strange fruit today.The only solution this time around is zero tolerance,,

Interesting.  You believe the opposite of reality (that which can be proven to be real with evidence and facts versus whatever you or your pedagogues feel is right or going to yield the most money for them.  The slogan might say that, but in reality:

This country already has a 3rd world mentality when it comes to guns, a point I've said many times, and not once has this point been disputed by the pro gun people on Fark so apparently they are fine with that.

Wow, just wow. But living in Alabama I kind of see this pattern with the right-wing women, so she probably doesn't know any better. There will be these successful professional ladies who are quit attractive, but are hardcore in Cult 45. They want to find their "soul mate" but every time they find a "good God fearing conservative male", it never lasts, because the man never respects them and equates being a gentleman to being a "cuck".
