Fake News

Postby Melvin Bradford on Thu Jan 17, 2019 1:26 pm

Thought we had a heading for fake news...oh well, we do now, for now.

The ultra leftist website 'Think Progress' has come out with a doozy. Guilt by association by lie.

https://thinkprogress.org/americas-bigg ... h-sanction

Back in the glory days of the Bolshevik disaster US progressives and lefties were enthralled with the socialist utopia. Folks would travel to the Soviet Union to glimpse the 'wonder of their achievement' even though it was no more than a brutal third world threshing floor of backward technology, anti-faith and family environment complete with prisons for political dissenters or independent thinkers, and state run education/ indoctrination with speech codes and citizens reporting on one another for the glory of the absolute state.

Fast forward to our modern twisted assault on the American mind from what can only be described as the
"grease drippings" from the failed Soviet experiment in the form of American leftists like this fake news/ testimony from the young brown shirts of digital information.

You see from the text the direction the "Russian" narrative wants to go.........to the complete indictment of lets just say for now....everyone who voted for the current President, has a conservative leaning, and is of the Christian faith.

The group and its origins sound innocuous enough. But the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) — a right-wing group founded 36 years ago — has deepened connections between America’s religious right and Russians even as the latter have been sanctioned by the United States, according to a ThinkProgress investigation.


What a bizarre projection, huh? It's Think Progress but still. The propaganda is not meant to convince conservatives that they're being brainwashed... they've given up on us... it's to convince their own ideologues that conservatives are being brainwashed. They brainwash their own base to believe the other side is, of course, brainwashed.

Goes back to that gaslighting concept again. People are given something real to focus on. For example, there really is an investigation into Trump for collusion with Russia. We really did have a former president claim that Russia hacked our democracy and the entire intelligence community agrees with him. It's real.

But how really real is the Russian Collusion? We can't get close to it and inspect it. We don't know much more than what we knew two years ago. How did Russia hack us? How might Trump be involved? Even the most ardent conspiracy theorist on the left eventually has to admit that they're waiting on Mueller. The gas lamp. He has something on Trump and boy is it going to be something good.

I believe that's true. And it's not enough just to say that the socialists are attacking freedom of religion. They are specifically targetting Christians and Jews. Why?

What pisses me off about the older sect of socialists is that they grew up in a Christian dominate culture and they benefitted from... get this... Christian privilege. That's right. And yet they have no appreciation for the peace and prosperity they enjoyed. They want to completely change the system and thereby deny the younger generations the same opportunities we all had... that the socialist wannabes had.

Our laws are built on a base of Judeo-Christian values. It's funny listening to the left because they constantly talk about 'our values' without really defining them. They claim a perch of moral superiority without any evidence of their attainment. The far left of our country lives in a sort of moral relativism bubble. They have no base for their beliefs. This helps to explain the 'triggering' and the 'scream at the sky' mentality. They hate people of faith because they operate with a different paradigm. Those that believe in god believe in a shop keeper. That one is not just free to do what they want without consequences. As the sages say, "The book is open and the hand writes." That sort of talk is absolutely despised by the left because they want to make up their own rules. They don't want to be confined by what was written in scrolls thousands of years... probably just so they could control the people... as the lazy thinker might guess. And they sure as hell don't want to believe that they may be punished for their actions.

Socialists, the new extreme progressive, want to degrade and undermine Christianity while promoting their own rules and values... essentially a new religion without saying as much. But worse, because reality doesn't fit their rules and one must accept many lies and direct contradictions in order to hold onto the ideology. Open thought is eventually forbidden because the socialist religion cannot tolerate any questions. It is the questioner that must be silenced. So the irony for the left, what they believe is this archaic form of living life believing in god, is actually empowering to the individual. The leftist ends up rejecting faith in individuality in favor of oppression and shallow thinking.

How to know if you've fallen into the Russian Illusion cult:
*You believe Americans have been tricked by Russians
*You don't see anything unusual with all the deep state actors being fired at the FBI and DOJ.
*You believe that while the Clintons paid for the dossier, surely some of it came from responsible US officials.
*You believe Obama when he said that all 17 Intel agencies agree with what was written by Comey, Clapper and Brennan (all political appointees).
*You're addicted to the gas lamp of the Mueller probe. What do they know? Surely, it's something... even though every leak turns out to be false.

Yes, fake news to protect the liars/ abusers and feed the mob who defend it with insults, public protests, death threats and overt hostility....all sanctioned by media.
Fake news to advance political agendas.....libel Republicans.....and acquit Democrats.

Notice that whenever BoJanglesRiley has failed to answer numerous challenges to prove his unfounded blatherings , then out pops his other Seattle Times account [Jack Cust] to spread more unproven blatherings and SWARF.

I doubt that you know how to determine valid sources. It's not the TV station you watch or the newspaper you read. It's not Rachel Maddow or Sean Hannity. Some use anonymously sourced material, which is usually fake news, but most will give a source.... a name with some authority for which we can judge whether the information is accurate. Sources like Congress, the DOJ, and the Department of Homeland security for examples.

The essence of fake news is lying through omission. This is what has BTDT and others hopelessly lost. If they don't take in information that their favorite media refuses to report, they lose that bit of information and therefore can't properly judge a particular situation. The left is concentrated on keeping people at a low information level and misinformed at that. Then they tell them not to pay attention to Fox or Alex Jones.... anyone not giving the same talking points so they don't get exposed. People like BTDT latch onto that sort of talk because they're afraid of the implosion of their world view.
