Old and dying, sustained only nostalgia for an idealized past that's been symbolized by a single thing? Call me crazy but I'm pretty sure they've got that one down.

I just wish they'd wheeze their last and roll credits.

Lose the big election to Boss Jim Gettys?  Buy loads of expensive junk just to chuck it in a warehouse unopened?  Drive his second wife to drink?  Die fat and paranoid with the name of his childhood sled on his lips?

I mean, there's a lot of options here.

They already have their own media.

Stormfront,, Daily Stormer, Daily Caller, Daily Wire, Fox News, Sinclair Broadcast group (locals), The Federalist, Wall Street Journal.... and on and on.

Christ, even mainstream media buys into idiotic GOP framing of topics, like pro-police propaganda

Well the reason for Hungary is to show what they want america to become.

Descriptively he's not wrong. It's why you can't allow a partisan press in your country, to prevent that. Prescriptively, therefore, he's wrong and we should take note of how to frustrate or subvert these strategies for attaining power.

They already knew this. They've been executing on that very strategy for decades. The difficulty in the US is that they can't control all the media; but, they're trying.

They want it to be just small enough to enforce Corporate business policy. No need to use taxpayers money for anything but guaranteeing the largest companies stay in business and keep those "leadership funds" well stocked with liquid.

There are very few factually honest people in Congress.

Hhhmmm....this guy ain't the brightest bulb in borsch belt.....ya might want to look up a very likely reference to what "Rose bud" means in the movie-as far as Hearst is concerned.
Nor has the Prime Minister watched the movie, it ain't exactly complimentary to Fox style "journalism" it portrayed back in the day.

"Zsolt Bayer, a pro-Orbán pundit who formerly called Roma people "animals", referred to Jewish people as "stinking excrement" and used racist slurs for Black people during the BLM protests."

I can see why Tucker would fit in well there.

With everything going on, it'd be too on the nose to have it in Moscow.
 
2022-05-22 1:31:32 PM  
It's kinda cute, I always thought, that a demented old whore like Hearst came up with such a flowery name for his mistress Marion Davies' cooch. One imagines the orange gasbag, in his human moments, has tried to find a similarly endearing way to describe Melanie's. Not her fault if she's not turned on by the repeated bellowing Daddy's little girl

That entire article is disgusting and every US attendee in an elected position should be removed from office.

A CPAC speaker says Jews are excrement and Roma are animals. He also uses anti-black epithets.

The conservatives are forming an international alliance to combat internationalism.  Confused?  When they say internationalism, they don't mean international, they mean Jews.

CPAC should be nuked from space. I would also accept Jewish Space Lasers.

The Hungarian prime minister said that with his fourth electoral victory on 3 April, Hungary had been "completely healed" of "progressive dominance". He suggested it was time for the right to join forces.

"We have to take back the institutions in Washington and Brussels. We must find allies in one another and coordinate the movements of our troops," Orbán said.


Oh look. A NWO.

That's essentially what they're trying to do. They're trying to unite all the right-wing movement worldwide to wage a war against anyone who doesn't side with them.

France probably would have joined them if Le Pen won, thankfully she didn't.

See, this post right here illustrates the value of a liberal education!

Instruction from the Kremlin does not get recorded or written down, or transmitted over telecommunication systems - it's only given vocally, in person.  It's much, much easier for the Kremlin's messengers to freely speak with CPAC members in Hungary than in the US.  Plus, the local gendarmes turn a blind eye to a lot of things even the scumbag police in America find distasteful, which is a strong selling point to the GOP.

Yes because the problem is we don't have enough Tucker and other fascist dick bags. When I cut cable and they asked why I made sure to tell them Fox news was a big part of it

No kidding, I was shaking my head throughout. Our people went all the way to Hungary to listen to this? It's straight out of 1930's Germany. This is what they want.
