I think

24 Jul

many of us have had enough.

Now let me ask you, have you EVER seen Conservatives protest? I sure haven’t. The only thing approaching it was the Tea Party stuff (which I think was a precursor). Usually they are busy at their jobs.

So it really seems to me like times are changing. We are seeing things now that we have never seen before. Conservatives are going the “Punch back twice as hard” route. They are even saying that. There is a palpable anger, now. That is a new thing. I worry that the sleeping giant is stirring, that the bulldog is almost to the stage of severe action. That would not be good.

Leftists won’t like it if Conservatives start to protest. Lefties have been the only ones protesting for two generations. Conservatives have been very slow to action. But you won’t like them when they’re angry…

So Lefties, be careful! The dog’s “leash” may not be as short or as secure as you think.

 

Yeah,

pretty much.

I think hoity-toity Leftists are making a HUGE mistake, here. People are sick to death of the MSM’s overweening arrogance, and the correct response for the MSM is NOT to double down on overweening arrogance. They are alienating the masses.

The disparagement here is stunning, and the MSM would be wise to pay attention to it. Alas, if they were wise the wouldn’t be in this situation in the first place…

More NY Times

26 Jun

layoffs.

These guys totally deserve it. Unfortunately, decent people will get hurt, but so it always is in such cases.

I can both recognize that the NY Times is a disreputable rag and that decent people will get hurt as it falls.

But the sad thing is that the NYT soiled their own britches. If they had played it straight they wouldn’t be in this mess at all. Unfortunately, those who directed the paper sold their birthright for a mess of pottage.

Wow,

that is a total shellacking.

Good for Cotton. It’s about time he stood up to the NY Times bullies.

it’s an isolated incident and we really don’t know the motives. The guy yelling, “Allahu Akbar” wasn’t a hint, eh?

Really, do they think we are so stupid that we can’t tell which way the wind is blowing? Yeah, well I’m not that stupid.

How our “unbiased” news media

21 Jun

took the news that Democrat Jon Ossoff lost and that the chance to stick out their tongues at Donald Trump was gone:

A picture truly does say 1,000 words! Is there any question where they stood?

Could you play the “Sad Trombone” for me again? It goes so well with this picture! Let’s just say that Lefty tears are delicious…

Be careful!

Alex Jones and Infowars is more than a bit goofy. There is some real paranoid ideation, there. But just because you are paranoid does not mean the people are NOT out to harm you!

The MSM is NOT reliable or trustworthy. And I think THAT is the real damaging message. It is not just Kelly or NBC. This exposes a far more consequential issue. You may see one cockroach in your kitchen. Just one, but you can be certain that is not the only one in the house.

The media are NOT Truth-Tellers. It’s certainly not that Jones is intellectually beyond reproach and Kelly is totally wrong. It is that Kelly was clearly and obviously dishonest–Jones could not trust her. It’s NOT a matter of liking or believing what Jones says–I don’t. But Kelly is quite clearly deliberately deceptive.

That means that she (and by short extension the MSM) is not reliable as a source of Truth. She could be telling the truth, or she could be being deceptive. Just HOW would you know? And that is the real question–how do you know what is true? I think that both Kelly and Jones are wildly incorrect and most likely cynically so, but on what grounds does one make THAT judgment? On just what knowledge grounds are you standing?

And this episode tells the whole story about the MSM in general. Kelly was caught this time. But how often do MSM outlets tell lies and are just never caught? From this we know they lie–it is just not a question, it is just not arguable. It is a know fact. It was incontrovertibly shown here. But what, as many of us argue, if this is not an unusual and isolated event? That single event tells you that logically you can’t just assume that what you are being told by the MSM is true. Again, did you just happen to see the only cockroach in the house? Hmmm.

I think any reputable interviewer does not object to you doing your own recording. If they do, that is prima facie evidence that they are really not trustworthy and that you should run away immediately. So while Alex Jones is indeed wacky, there is simply NO question that Megyn Kelly is dishonest and untrustworthy.

ALWAYS bring your own recording device. Always.

Sunday seems

18 Jun

a very appropriate day to bring this up.

The very unfortunate fact is that the MSM lies to you. They want you inert and discouraged. Or, in other words, they want to turn your good impulses against you in a sort of moral Jiu-Jitsu. That is the purpose of fake news. And don’t kid yourself, that is what the MSM is pushing. And of course any source is only intermittently false–sometimes CNN or the NY Times tells the truth. So that makes it much harder–spreading a false narrative is much easier when there is a little truth sprinkled in. You can’t just blindly go by the source–you have to evaluate each story. Yeah, even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while…

It is wrong. It is immoral. It is a counterfeit of morality. It is what the MSM does. These guys are NOT your friends. Just because you would never lie and deceive doesn’t mean that that applies to them. Be wise. Be wary.

My counsel? Don’t believe them. If a pollster calls, lie to them (yes, sometimes lying is the moral thing to do). Carefully convince your friends. Then do what you think is right. But know that the MSM lies to you on a regular basis–they give just enough truth to make you put your guard down. And the anchors and reporters and management are true believers, so they seem totally truthful and reliable. See, not many humans do what they know to be wrong. But they often do what is wrong nonetheless.

If there was any doubt left…

There is certainly none now.

And truer words were never spoken: This isn’t brave.
