I’ve been thinking about this for a while. One of the left’s favorite boogeymen is the evil corporation. Leftist writers just loooooove making evil corporations the villains of their dystopian novels.
It’s not just literature either. You see this in movies (Blade Runner, the Resident Evil franchise), TV shows, video games (again, Resident Evil), etc. They just love demonizing corporations, and I think it’s because they’re either socialists or communists.
But, given all that happened last year, with corporations like Alphabet (parent company of Google) firing James Damore over a memo he wrote, and MasterCard (of which is mostly owned by Muslims) demanding PayPal, Stripe, Patreon and others deplatform various conservatives, centrists and alternative services like Hatreon and FreeStartr over their politics, I’ve come to realize that we’re currently living in the dystopia these leftists warned us about.
Only problem is, these same leftists and their cohorts have no problem applauding these evil corporations. These corporations are run by leftists, so of course that is to be expected. These leftists also have no problem using these corporations to silence their critics and those that disagree with them.
Leftists will still claim to hate corporations, however, but when you ask them which ones, they’ll cite some random oil company, Enron, or Walmart. Even though Google is developing a search engine for China that censors information, they’ll never admit that Google is evil. Even though Mark Zuckerberg basically told Angela Merkel that Facebook would help her suppress any criticism of her insane immigration policies, leftists will never admit that Facebook is evil. Might I remind you that Facebook wants to develop mind-reading technology? Yeah, it’s true.
Facebook is developing technology to let users communicate using only their thoughts, the internet giant confirmed on Wednesday night. A secretive division at Facebook’s California headquarters has been experimenting with mind-reading technology for several months, the company revealed. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder, has previously described telepathy as the “ultimate communication technology”, but the social network’s ambitions have been unclear.
This is freaking scary. I still, rather stupidly, have a Facebook account, but I don’t use their official app. And, of course, I have uBlock Origin installed on all my desktop browsers (unfortunately it is not available for mobile devices).
I will probably get rid of it eventually, especially if this mind-reading technology comes to fruition. That is very, very creepy.
But, as I said, you don’t see the left calling Facebook out as much…they have no problem weaponizing these services to censor thoughts and ideas they don’t like. The left themselves have basically ensured that the nightmare they wrote about became a reality.
Okay, so I might be a little late to the party, but I am also lazy and easily distracted. But I’ve been watching this story with interest, and it’s gotten to the point where I just have to say something.
I am, of course, talking about Patreon deleting Sargon of Akkad’s account. Sargon is a prominent center-left YouTuber and podcaster, whose real name is Carl Benjamin. He is a vocal opponent of political correctness and SJWs, and despite being a vocal opponent of the alt-right, leftists hate him anyway.
He made an appearance on Michelle Caitlin’s YouTube livestream on February 7, 2018, and used the phrase “white [DREADED N-WORD THAT MUST NEVER, EVER BE UTTERED, WRITTEN, READ OR EVEN THOUGHT]” while talking about some racist alt-righters. To clarify, he was using the racists’ own words and methods against them. Here’s the evil words (thanks to One Angry Gamer):
“I just can’t be bothered with people who chose to treat me like this. It’s really annoying. Like, I — . You’re acting like a bunch of n*****s, just so you know. You act like white n*****s. Exactly how you describe black people acting is the impression I get dealing with the Alt Right. I’m really, I’m just not in the mood to deal with this kind of disrespect.”
“Look, you carry on, but don’t expect me to then have a debate with one of your f**gots.…Like why would I bother?…Maybe you’re just acting like a n****r, mate? Have you considered that? Do you think white people act like this? White people are meant to be polite and respectful to one another, and you guys can’t even act like white people, it’s really amazing to me.”
Some asshole took it out of context and reported it to Patreon, who then deleted his account, claiming that he had violated their terms of service.
This appearance didn’t take place on his YouTube channel. He did not advertise it on his Patreon page. So, one would wonder, where’s the violation of their terms of service? Oh, there isn’t one. But Patreon, like Twitter, has a Trust and Safety Council. Yeah, those things are extremely Orwellian. They exist only to censor people the leftists don’t like.
The mainstream media – and by ‘mainstream media’ I mean the handful of tech sites and bloggers that have bothered to cover this story – are predictably labeling Sargon as an alt-right monster, even though he isn’t alt-right (they’re also calling Laci Green, who used to be an obnoxious feminazi but is now at least open-minded enough to not label her opponents as utter monsters now, an alt-righter).
So Sargon decides to set up an account with an Patreon alternative, called Subscribe Star. A few other prominent people decided to ditch Patreon and move over to Subscribe Star.
This pissed off the left, so a couple of asshole leftists decided to investigate Subscribe Star’s infrastructure and operations. I made a few posts on Gab about it, but they got lost in the sea of activity.
The two people in question are Becca Lewis and Tim Squirrell. Becca Lewis, who I guess is some sort of leftist blogger, did a great deal of the legwork and probably got the ball rolling on this. Tim Squirrell egged her on and helpfully posted a list of services Subscribe Star uses.
One of those services was PayPal. We already know that PayPal has been on a banning spree, denying services to Milo, Alex Jones and other vicious thoughtcriminals. So, predictably, they have denied services to Subscribe Star.
But, Subscribe Star is run by a Russian guy who is absolutely not taking this shit lying down. They’re working on a solution to this problem and haven’t banned Sargon or any of their new members. Right now, I highly recommend Subscribe Star. I’d use it, but I don’t think I have much of a following and I don’t really have much to offer anyway.
You can read more about PayPal’s despicable actions in this Financial Times article. It’s an archive link because they put their stuff behind a paywall.
And now to my favorite part of this whole story. A prominent leftist philosopher, atheist, commentator and podcaster, Sam Harris, has deleted his Patreon account due to all of this, all the while still being a leftist. I can’t help but have a lot of respect for this guy.
Sam Harris is is a very popular American author, philosopher, neuroscientist, critic of religion, public intellectual, and podcast host. Sam Harris also has the 13th most popular account on Patreon. Patreon is a is a media platform that provides business tools for artists, writers and creators to run a subscription content service and raise money …
I don’t expect people to magically agree with me on everything. I’m just asking you to see me, and my fellow right-wingers as human beings. That’s all. I have no desire to silence anyone, despite wishing that some people would just shut up already. But am I going to actively censor them? No! Hell, if it weren’t for these people my blog wouldn’t have much content at all! The give and take is an important part of our society.
But the left doesn’t want that. They just want to shut people up.
Oh, and some more cool news? Jordan Peterson (who is not insane) is working on a Patreon alternative!
Gab’s got a payment processor and crowd funding alternative in the works as well.
Patreon is back in the news following another round of what appears to be an ideological purge from their platform. In the last few days the accounts for Milo Yiannopoulos, Carl Benjamin (Sargon of Akkad), and James Allsup were all terminated.
Oh, and it gets even better. So Jacqueline Hart, the head of their Orwellian trust and safety team, has been doing some damage control. The team has been emailing various YouTubers, desperately trying to keep them from leaving, etc. Ms. Hart herself called YouTuber Matt Christiansen, and while he could not record the phone call, he did provide a transcript. You can get a summary of what was said at the video below.
Here’s a direct-link to the transcript. I highly recommend reading it. I might fisk it after Christmas. In short, Patreon does not support free speech and they “aren’t a free market”, whatever that’s supposed to mean. So, basically, if they don’t like you, you can kindly fuck off. That’s the conclusion I’ve drawn thus far.
I am sure it’s going to get even more ridiculous as more and more people have decided to ditch Patreon as soon as it’s feasible to do so. I feel sorry for the non-political people that have been affected by this.
I stupidly watched a beheading video. I’ve seen beheading videos, and videos of people being burned alive, and people being stoned to death, and so on. At some point, however, I decided to stop watching that kind of stuff. It was starting to bother me, causing nightmares and such.
But I was browsing Reddit and came across a thread about a Danish woman being beheaded. Two women, one Danish, one Norweigan, both in their mid-twenties, were hiking in Morocco. Both were found dead. Then a video of Muslim men beheading one of the women surfaced.
You can read more about it at Pamela Geller’s site, of which includes the video itself. It’s only about a minute long and is kind of blurry, but still graphic and disturbing.
Geller Report first brought you this story in “Moderate” Morocco on Tuesday: two female tourists found BEHEADED in Morocco. Three devout Muslims have been arrested after two female backpackers were found with severe neck injuries in their tent at a popular trekking spot in Morocco.
This is why we need a wall. This is why we didn’t sign that bullshit UN migrant pact. This is why Trump wanted that ‘Muslim ban’ that wasn’t even an effective ban at all, one that the mainstream media blew out of proportion.
It’s just a fact that people from the Middle East kind of resemble people from Central America. They have brown skin and dark hair. You wouldn’t really tell the difference between the two if you only had a fleeting glance at them. Hell, I’m not Arab but I’ve been mistaken for an Arab person and people have asked me if I’m Indian, and some people just look at me and go, “what are you, exactly?” I’m not saying this because I’m a racist cunt. I’m saying this because it’s just simple logic. Furthermore, Mexicans and other Central Americans aren’t strangers to this sort of horrific violence. They behead and mutilate people too. At least, gang members and the drug cartels do.
The mentality these two women undoubtedly had is also utterly ridiculous. They probably thought that by traveling in Morocco, they were being good little non-racist girls that embrace diversity and whatever else. I’m not saying you have to be racist, but you do need to have some common sense. Traveling alone anywhere in the Middle East – even supposed ‘moderate’ nations like Morocco – is suicidal. Even traveling with another woman is suicidal, as we have just seen. There are so many beautiful places on this planet that aren’t full of bloodthirsty Musloids who rape and kill those who reject their sexual advances.
I can’t get over how completely insane these people are. BEHEADING someone simply because they don’t want to have sex with you? What the fuck is wrong with these people?
That was a (mostly) rhetorical question. One thing nobody really wants to discuss is the rampant inbreeding throughout the Middle East. Take a look at the perps in the link above. They all look, to put it charitably, weird. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were inbred.
And the video…I really wish I hadn’t watched it. I’ve seen horrible violent videos before, and I didn’t need to see another one. At this point, I already know how monstrous these people are. If you’ve never seen one before…well, if you absolutely have to, all I can tell you is that it’s at least short and kinda-sorta blurry…but you’ll still see and hear things you’ll never be able to get out of your mind.
I don’t advocate the genocide of Muslims, but if there are any sane, moderate Muslims out there…you’ve gotta admit there’s something seriously wrong with a lot of your brethren. It’s obvious that it’s both religious and cultural, and that’s being spread across the world thanks to the insane immigration policies of various countries. If a Muslim is living their life, minding their own business and not hurting anyone, I have no beef with them. I am not, however, going to stop calling out the problem for what it is. If we Catholics have to bear the brunt of the priest abuse scandal, you can do the same for terrorism.
Now I’m just messed up and scared to go to bed and my throat feels funny and I’m just going to go play video games now.
Elle magazine recently published a hit piece on Lara Trump, Eric Trump’s wife. As I figured it would be, it was extremely biased and incredibly insulting to its subject.
It’s from their November 2018 issue, the one with Lady GaGa on the cover. It’s supposed to be the Women in Hollywood issue (like there haven’t been enough of these…Jesus, they come out with like, five of these damn things every year) or something, and I’m mystified as to why they chose to profile Lara Trump – she’s not an actress or singer or even writer – but there you go.
Now, I’ve been reading fashion magazines since I was ten years old. It’s been a long time for me. I don’t read them as often anymore, and I don’t actually buy them (they are way too expensive these days), but every now and then I’ll read an issue if someone interesting is on the cover.
While I’m not going to fisk every single line in this profile, I am going to quote the parts that are extremely biased.
The name of the profile is The Good Soldier. The author of this tripe is Emma Rosenblum.
So, after being introduced to Lara Trump, we get to the part where she goes on the campaign trail for her father in law. The author feels it necessary to provide “fact checks” after everything Lara says.
“Lara immediately went out in the field, campaigning up to six days a week, traveling across America with a group of pro-Trump women whom she’d assembled with the mission of softening their candidate’s image, with female voters in particular. “There was a narrative out there that Donald Trump was a bad person,” Lara says. (At the time, Trump had already been accused by multiple women of sexual harassment; “Grab ’em by the pussy” was unearthed in October of that year.)”
So, of course, God forbid their readers make up their own minds. I think most people remember when the Access Hollywood tape surfaced; the media wouldn’t shut up about it. The media demonized Trump as a bona fide rapist who routinely groped women. I have always believed that his pussy comment was a figure of speech and a commentary on famewhores and groupies, who basically let you do whatever you want to them in exchange for fame, money or both. As for those accusations…only one woman, I think, bothered to offer up her name, and they all ended up being completely baseless. Too bad, Emma – Trump is not Bill Clinton. That’s the real rapist, and I’ll bet you a million dollars Emma voted for him and his enabling wife.
“…Donald Trump’s presidency has been every bit as disorienting and frightening as many feared…
This has no business being in this profile. It is not fact, it’s opinion. What does this have to do with Lara Trump and the job she was hired to do? Nothing.
“She looks expensive; her Van Cleef & Arpels earrings shine. She’s polished, controlled, articulate, impossibly on message. In other words, everything our dear leader is not.”
Another line that has absolutely no business being in this profile. This is opinion – the author’s opinion on someone other than the subject of her profile. Why is this even here? We want to know about Lara Trump. Presumably, the reader isn’t necessarily interested in the author’s bullshit opinion on the President, of which is completely unfounded. I don’t see the President as being the opposite of any of those things. No, really, I don’t. The only thing he does that comes close to being unpolished might be some of his tweets, but then again, everyone makes mistakes. Trump’s appeal is that people don’t see him as a slick, corrupt politician who says exactly what people want to hear, only to renege on it once in office. Plenty of mid-term Democratic candidates are already on record stating that they have no desire to maintain the moderate positions they campaigned on.
Right now, Lara Trump serves as an advisor to the President’s 2020 reelection campaign (yes, bitches, he’s running for reelection. Feel free to fucking kill yourselves now – it’ll do us a universe of good).
“Lara also makes regular appearances on Fox News and hosts a web series on the campaign site called Real News Update, in which she boasts about Trump’s accomplishments in an effort to refute the “fake news” bias that Trump and Co. are so fixated on.”
Emma Rosenbitch writes this shit with a straight face and wonders why “Trump and Co.” are so “fixated” on bias. Uh, hello, bitch? Do you have any self-awareness whatsoever? Evidently not. Emma basically says that Lara is either completely deluded or is a stone cold liar later on in this stupid article. She insults Lara, the subject of her article, the President, and the people that voted for him. Oh, but Trump and “company” are fixated on something that, according to this bitch, doesn’t exist. Her article and every single one of her bitchy little barbs is further proof of that “bias” “Trump and Co.” are so fucking fixated on. DUH.
“Heading into the midterms, and, crucially, looking toward the 2020 election, the white women demographic that Lara is tasked with preaching to is the wild card that Trump fears.”
Feminazis are clearly deluded over the POWER they have over us all. On the one hand, they’re eternal and perpetual rape victims trapped in a dystopian patriarchal hell, and on the other hand, they’re FIERCE BAD ASS BITCHES and SLAY QUEENS and whatever else. Pick one, bitches – either you’re a slay queen or you’re a rape victim. You can’t be both.
Oh, and it’s just so cute that Lara’s campaigning (that’s what she does, Emma, you stupid feckless cunt) is preaching, because Elle and Vogue and Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan’s constant fear-mongering over abortion and whatever else isn’t preaching at all. Too bad you can’t see my big huge fucking eyeroll. My eyes are rolling so hard right now I think they might roll right out of my skull.
And, to top it all off, this is from the same people that raked that very demographic over the coals for voting for Trump in the first place, but they’re so confident that these women they despise will come around and vote for whatever demented, degenerate baby killer the Democrats will shit out for 2020.
“At press time, Civiqs tracking found that 20 percent of women without college degrees have an unfavorable view of Donald Trump. It’s up to Lara to keep Republican women in the fold, to give the Trump administration a peppy, TV-friendly sheen for those low-information female voters who’d like to reelect Trump and not have to feel bad about it. (Initially, this was seen to be Ivanka’s mission, but as she’s gotten mired in actual fraught policy debates, Lara has emerged as the nice white lady Trump mom of the moment.)”
Let me start out by saying that Emma Rosenblum is a complete cunt. A blood-belching, pus-dribbling cunt. First thing I noticed was the bitchy cuntish remark about low-information female voters (Rush Limbaugh wants his phrase back, bitch) but now that I’m actually examining it, there’s a lot wrong with this.
First of all, who the fuck takes polls seriously anymore, except for people working in campaigns? How did that work out for Emma’s Lady and Saviour Hillary Clinton? Furthermore, even if these polls were accurate, things change. They change rather quickly in politics.
Secondly, the author seems to assume that while those uneducated women don’t have a favorable view of Trump, they’ll vote for him anyway. She equates “women without college degrees” with “Republican women” and calls those women “low-information voters.” More of that bias “Trump and Co.” are, like, totally paranoid about.
I voted for Trump in 2016 and I’ll do so again in 2020. I’m not white, I’m female and I have two college degrees. A woman without a college degree isn’t uneducated and that does not mean she’s automatically a Republican. What the fuck? And that certainly does not mean she’s “low-information.” Fucking bitch, I swear.
“Eric, who at the time was executive vice president of the Trump Organization, now runs the day-to-day operations, a role that he and Donald Jr. took over when their dad got elected. Lara takes issue with the media’s portrayal of her husband (she takes issue with the media’s portrayal of most things.)”
SO? AND? Lara’s right! Your bullshit article is more proof that there IS a bias. You’ve portrayed Lara as some dumb, corrupt, filthy rich racist white woman who blindly does what her husband and father-in-law tells her. I can’t blame the woman for taking issue with the media’s portrayal of “most things.” Of course she does. I do as well, and Emma Rosenbitch isn’t helping her own case. And yeah, based on what I read, the media’s portrayal of Eric Trump is highly unfair, but that’s no surprise. The media is full of communist shitheads who hate Christians and Republicans and white people and straight people and anyone else that’s even marginally different from them.
“On Saturday Night Live, Eric is parodied as a privileged dunce, while his brother Donald Jr. is portrayed as a marginally intelligent, if more devious. “Obviously they’ve got it very wrong, in my opinion – my husband is one of the most smartest people I’ve ever met,” she says. “And it’s so funny to see how people try to interpret the family. I think it’s just because Eric is under the radar that they don’t really have a sense of him.” So what is Eric really like? “I’ll tell you, he works so hard. One of the few things that really frustrates me is when people claim that the Trump family doesn’t work. I mean, the daily things that Eric has to deal with on all of his properties, unimaginable stuff, people filing lawsuits left and right about crazy things. He’s doing an incredible job. I think his dad is very proud of him,” she says. (Eric, along with Ivanka and Donald Jr., is named in a lawsuit against Trump brought by the New York state attorney general that alleges improper use of the Trump Foundation’s funds for campaign purposes; the Trumps have filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, and they deny the claims have any merit.)”
So, once again comes the unnecessary and bullshit “fact check” because, once again, God forbid anyone let Lara’s words speak for themselves. Of course she’d be full of praise for both her husband and father-in-law. Most people would, though. Of course, Emma Rosenbitch has no problem with the Clintons using their shitty Foundation to enrich themselves…I guess that’s the only proper way to use a Foundation. They’ve probably used their foundation to fund her campaign, but the media covers for the Clintons, so no lawsuit for them. This lawsuit against Trump, like that bullshit collusion investigation, is nothing more than a bunch of disgruntled Democrats doing everything to destroy Trump’s presidency. His kids aren’t the only ones stating that the claims have no merit.
“As for the rest of the family, Lara is “very close” with Ivanka, she says. “I think they’re doing as well as they can,” she says of Ivanka and Jared’s life in DC. “It’s really hard. I don’t envy them at all. People are protesting outside their house, and they have children in there. But I think they’re making a huge difference.” What difference, I ask? “If you look at the prison reform stuff, Jared’s worked so hard on that. I know he’s working so hard on the Middle East. Ivanka with the paid family leave – there’s so much stuff.” (The prison reform legislation is at a standstill; Trump recently announced the shuttering of the Palestinian diplomatic mission in the US; no paid family leave policy has been implemented – Ivanka has said that this will “take time.”)”
Rolling my eyes again. While yes, it may be true that Ivanka and Jared might not have gotten all of their wishlist items accomplished, I think the Trump administration has done some great things. Lowest black unemployment in years, we ditched the Paris climate bullshit, we didn’t sign the bullshit UN migration pact, some manufacturing has returned to the US, and our gas prices are lower. The wall hasn’t been built, though, and that really irritates the shit out of me. And, of course, there’s the NAFTA thing. Things aren’t too bad right now. The left is still throwing a temper tantrum over 2016 so they think that anything that doesn’t remotely go their way is basically rape and oppression and whatever else they’ve got bouncing around their stupid heads.
But this profile isn’t about Ivanka and Jared’s accomplishments or non-accomplishments. There’s no need to fucking fact-check Lara’s words. Notice how Emma totally glossed over the fact that her fellow demented leftists are literally protesting outside Ivanka’s home. Well, she doesn’t totally dismiss it, but she does minimize it later on.
“Lara then launches into talking points that I recognize from her speeches at Trump’s rallies, which you can watch on YouTube and which are riveting in a dystopian, filmic way.”
Once again, more bias. I could say the same fucking thing about Obama’s creepy-as-fuck rallies and that creepy-as-fuck “Mmm mmm mmm Barack Hussein Obama” song sung by creepy Children of the Corn. These people act like Trump has cornered the market on slavish devotion and that’s not true. Witness their stupid reaction to Hillary losing. People bawling in public, on camera, over a fucking election. Or that nutjob screaming her head off at Trump’s inauguration.
I think the left is just pissed off that Trump enjoys far more popularity than Hillary. Nobody held rallies like that for Hillary.
“…And, unfortunately, given that we live in the climate that we do, a lot of things will never get reported. But i say this to people all the time – 50 years from now, when we look back on this period in time in the United States and this presidency, I really do think that people are going to say that Donald Trump was actually really, really great for the United States of America.” Cute rapturous applause and chants of “Lock her up!”
Oh, but Trump will totally be impeached, you guys. Cue chants of “Yes we can!”
I don’t know how Trump will be viewed by history, but I am pretty sure that historians will look at the hysterical years-long temper tantrum of the left and wonder what the hell is wrong with them.
“She’s a natural politician, really. Because I can’t tell if she believes her spin – the White House is a smoothly running machine; Trump loves women; he cares about immigrants; he’s a strong, smart leader; he wants what’s best for the country – which, based on every single story coming out of the White House for the past two years, is completely, totally, maybe 1,000 percent untrue, or if she’s lying through her bright white teeth.”
And here it is. Either Lara Trump is Joseph Goebbels in drag, or she’s, like, totes 1,000 percent a liar!
The White House is a smoothly running machine. If you call letting a fucking US ambassador DIE in a terrorist attack, only to have his fucking corpse paraded down the streets running smoothly then you’re fucking deluded. Trump ended up with a lot of treacherous assholes in the Cabinet and in the FBI. Plus, the media is a propaganda machine that blows up every little thing to make Trump look bad.
She wants us to believe that Trump hates women. Really? So, can you explain to me why he has two fucking daughters? Can you explain to me why he let his two sons marry women? Can you explain to me why he allowed his granddaughters to be born? I mean, he’s been married to three women so far – two of whom are immigrants. He is a strong, smart leader. Trump was very successful in a very difficult real estate market. And now he’s President of the United States when everyone in the fucking media said he had no chance. Furthermore, it’s not his job to “care” about immigrants (and what she really means by “care” is allow every foreigner on Earth to invade the US and live here without being citizens while the rest of us slave away to keep these fuckers fed and sheltered). And if her Lady and Saviour can’t beat Trump the Rapist in a Presidential campaign, what does that say about her? I guess she isn’t too fucking bright either.
Letting our country be overrun by hostile foreigners and feminazis is not what’s best for the country. It simply isn’t. This section has no business being in this article. Once again, the author injects her opinions in a personality profile, and wonders why we complain about media bias.
There’s a really long section about how Lara can go about New York City without being hassled by people, and that this random person claims that nobody heckles Lara or anyone else associated with the Trump administrtion. Lara and others on the right side of the aisle are routinely heckled and harassed by asshole leftists, and Emma wants you to know that they’re all lying. It’s just sunshine and roses for Trump supporters in NYC.
“I know she feels like they’re hated in the city, and I’m sure that’s not unwarranted,” Aronson says. “But to be honest, when I’m with them, I’ve never experienced that. I’ve never seen anyone heckle them; I’ve never seen a negative response. IN fact, I’ve seen the opposite. I’ve seen people come up to Eric at dinner and say, ‘I really love your father.'” Says Perozzi, “In almost any other city in this country, she and that family would be treated like royalty. Imagine if they lived in Dallas! I mean, the doors would open. Here, that’s certainly not the case, and in many cases, it’s the opposite. She has a circle of friends, she’s very close to her family, and her parents are very involved. And she and Eric have a routine; they go to certain restaurants regularly. And it’s fine, but I don’t think there’s an outpouring of love or, like, sentiment when people see them, for sure.”
That’s because most crazy leftists don’t know who Eric or Lara Trump are. They don’t know what he looks like, and most New Yorkers are probably used to seeing them. Just because these two dillweeds haven’t experienced any heckling doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. It has certainly happened to Ivanka on a number of occasions.
“This idea of the Trump family as victims is a theme that Lara returns to, whether she’s discussing her own experience, Jared and Ivanka’s, or the president and Melania’s.”
It’s true. They are victims of being heckled by nutjob leftists. As I said, there’s documented instances of Ivanka being heckled in public.
But, according to Emma, the Trumps aren’t allowed to claim victim status. They, like, totally deserve it.
“It’s got to be really isolating to be the First Lady, and I don’t think people ever really consider that,” Lara says. “You can’t go for a walk down the street. Especially in an environment like this, it must be really, really lonely.” And what about Melania’s Zara jacket, the one she wore to visit the children’s refugee center, with “I really don’t care. Do u?” scribbled across the back? “I really don’t know what that jacket was. I haven’t even asked her about that. But she’s a smart woman,” she adds. “She speaks, like, five languages. She’s incredible.”
Notice how there’s no fact check for this statement. Let me go ahead and offer one. Melania’s jacket had that phrase printed on the back, not scribbled. Melania didn’t have anyone put that message on the back of it. That’s just how it was. She wore that in reference to the criticism she kept getting from the media, as that was at the height of the “oh my god, children are being put in cages” nonsense. It was aimed at the media and she said so. Lastly, she removed the jacket before she arrived at the center itself. The future Democrat voters – I mean, “refugees” – didn’t even see her wear it.
Oh, we’ll get to the children in cages issue later. Bitch Emma does offer a “fact check” for that.
“As Lara rises in rank, she’s been studying the president’s policy positions. She touches on these in her Real News Update segments and also during our talk. We’re at the height of the refugee crisis, just after Trump has reversed curse on US Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s zero tolerance policy, and so I ask for her thoughts on this. “It was definitely going on under President Obama,” she begins, ” and, of course, this is a president who has been very strong on immigration. We can’t have open borders – that doesn’t work for any country. But that doesnt’ mean that we’re not going to help people or do hte right thing.” (The zero tolerance policy was created during the Trump administration; the detention centers were created under the Obama administration to deal with the increase of unaccompanied migrant children. The Obama administration did not purposely separate children from their families as part of an immigration policy.)”
More bias, and an outright lie. The zero tolerance policy’s purpose was NOT to deliberately separate children from their parents for the sake of separating families! She at least got the bit about the detention centers partially right – they were created during the Obama admin. The images of “cages” were from the Obama years. The administration chose to continue to detain people because you can’t put these children in PRISON, you fuckwits! Furthermore, a great deal of those children came WITHOUT their parents! The adults those kids came with weren’t their parents in the fucking first place! At least for some of them! But Emma Rosenbitch wants you to believe that Trump and Jeff Sessions and whoever else were cackling and saying racist stuff while planning to separate these poor innocent widdle brown families for no good reason, and no, that’s not what happened. At all.
“She blames the media for blowing the whole thing out of proportion. “It’s very hard to filter. Even for me, a family member who understands what is going on, some of the things I see, I have to remind myself, Well, that’s not the reality, that is a bit of a stretch. It’s not like the president said, ‘I want to rip…'” she trails off, careful not to complete the sentence. “I mean, come on, that’s crazy.” This is the ice cream guy, remember. The guy whose heart she knows. The guy who would never hurt an animal or rip a baby from his screaming mother’s arms.”
That baby you would have probably aborted if it had been yours, you mean? No, the President never had any intention of ripping your precious brown babies from their mothers. I don’t know why it’s a problem when Trump does it, but it’s just another day when Obama did the same fucking thing. Unless this deluded bitch really thinks Trump sits in the Oval Office and cackles at footage of some Mexican woman having her anchor baby taken away from her because she was stupid enough to commit a crime whilst holding her anchor baby in her arms. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. I hate it when feminazis talk about babies. Everyone knows damn well that these bitches get moist at the thought of slaughtering an innocent baby in the womb or even in its crib, especially if that baby come between them and their sleazy bar hopping.
“In August, Lara’s plan to stay under the radar blows up, foiled by one Omarosa Manigault Newman, who, as part of her publicity tour for her tell-all book, Unhinged, releases audio of Lara offering her $15,000 a month to work on Trump’s 2020 campaign in exchange for her silence regarding her time in the White House.”
Yeah, Omarosa’s shitty little tome crashed and burned. I had forgotten all about that. Oh yeah, Lara and the President are quaking in their boots over this. It’s kind of suspicious that they’d offer Omarosa anything in exchange for her silence, but then again, this is Omarosa, and offering her a lot of money to keep her mouth shut is probably easier than dealing with whatever nutjob lie she might tell to promote herself. I guess this is supposed to “prove” that Trump is corrupt and insane but to be honest, nobody really cared about what Omarosa had to say.
“It’s the day after Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, was convicted of five counts of tax fraud, two counts of bank fraud, and one count of failure to disclose a foreign bank account; and after Michael Cohen, Trump’s former laywer-slash-fixer, pleaded guilty to violating campaign violence law. Have the recent developments affected the mood of the rally? “I don’t think anybody at the rally paid mind to anything other than the fact that the president was there,” she says. “It’s an amazing feeling, people cheering and clapping.”
She’s good, Lara. She never breaks. She never wavers. An expert in glossing over reality, she’s just vague enough so that it’s hard to poke holes in her propaganda. And Trump, recognizing the power of his beautiful mouthpiece, has elevated her beyond what she thought possible.
Of course, Lara can’t possibly be telling the truth. She’s just spewing propaganda. Lara’s right. Most of us Trump supporters weren’t really fazed by Manafort and Cohen’s convictions, especially since Manafort’s convictions had nothing to do with the actual campaign. It certainly had nothing to do with the bogus Russia witch hunt.
The piece ends with a quote on Lara’s possible future in politics.
Thank GOD I am done with this. I am so pissed off at this stupid “article.” It is so extremely biased and incredibly insulting. Elle has done this before – back in 2010, they published a nasty hit piece on Sarah Palin, and a couple of years after that, wrote an insulting piece about “mini Palins” and they’re far from the only fashion magazine with liberal bias. These people have no self-awareness whatsoever.
This, also, is why these stupid magazines are going out of business. Well, it’s one reason. A lot of women are Republican. Those women are not interested in reading a Democratic feminazi pamphlet. These magazines are supposed to be about fashion, not bullshit Dem talking points, but here they are.
Oh, and if you think this is standard fare for a profile, think again. The vast majority of the stories they do on public figures is fawning nonsense that doesn’t challenge anything the subject says or does. The only exception is for non-leftists like Lara Trump and Sarah Palin. There was no bullshit “fact checks” for the things Lady GaGa, their cover star, said. Nope. Only Lara Trump.
Gab haters BTFO! Gab was back online yesterday afternoon, and I am SO happy. I really should have had more faith in Andrew Torba and the Gab team. They found a friendly host, domain registrar and payment processor. Now, some are claiming that Gab has gone back on its “free speech” thing because they’re asking users to report anything that violates their user guidelines, but I am pretty sure Gab has always had user guidelines. They can only really be enforced when someone actually reports violations. Gab is still a small start up. They can’t afford to pay armies of moderators to comb through all the posts and find violations. If users see something and don’t think it’s worth reporting, then…there isn’t much Gab can do about that, is there?
But that will probably change. I don’t know how I feel about that. I want Gab to be completely free speech. Every time I see racist or anti-Semitic crap, I just mute it. That’s what most users do – they see something offensive or objectionable, they mute the user. I think one exception was lolicon, of which was banned by Gab. Lolicon is…I think it’s anime drawings that are kind of pedophilic or something. Some people are super butthurt that lolicon is no longer allowed on Gab. I can understand banning something like lolicon, and yes, I know that it might not necessarily be illegal, but I can’t blame people for not wanting to accidentally see that. Plus, I wouldn’t want that found in my browser’s cache. Just saying.
Anyway, Gab hasn’t been online for a full 24 hours, so it’s a little slow right now.
UPDATE: They’ve got a new host, but now their domain provider, GoDaddy, has decided to tell them to go fuck themselves. (And this is very stressful for me because this very host and domain are from GoDaddy…dammit). One step forward, two steps back. Gab is now down while they move to their new host. From what I hear, the downtime won’t be for long. As for the Gab.com domain, they might not get it back, but I think there’s no issue with the gab.ai domain.
This is so irritating, and people like Vox Day are not helping with their bullshit gloating and whatnot. It was indeed the Pittsburgh shooter and not the Florida bomber that had an account at Gab. The shooter was anti-Trump and also anti-Semitic. Gab has cooperated with the authorities, handing over his account, and they also terminated said account.
I doubt Twitter or Facebook started out with moderators combing user accounts for bad stuff. Instead, almost any social site of any sort, from social networks to message boards rely on a reporting system. User sees something that they think is bad, and they report it to the mods. Mods look at it and decide if it violates the Terms of Service or not. Gab staff can’t know if something’s bad unless they themselves see it, or if someone reports it. Gab did nothing wrong and everything right, and yet companies from their hosts, to their online storefront and payment processors and God knows what else is conspiring to shut them down.
This, first of all, is deeply hypocritical. These same people expect a Christian to bake a wedding cake for a gay wedding, but they can pull this kind of shit when it is so obviously that they’re kicking Gab to the curb because of politics.
Twitter and Facebook don’t have to worry about this shit from their domain registrars. They also have their own servers, so they don’t need to worry about changing hosts every three months.
There’s a couple of things at work here. One, the left wants to silence right-wingers. They thought that this could be achieved by getting right-wingers banned from the mainstream platforms. But, as that racist idiot Vox kept saying, we need to build our own platforms. Well, gee, that’s kind of hard unless you’re a fucking billionaire. At this point, we right-wingers will need to have our own domain registrar, DNS, server farm, store front, payment processor, and, eventually, Internet service provider. Yes, I said ISP because once we actually get or build those other things, they’ll try to get us banned from our ISPs next.
Second thing…the mainstream social networks clearly don’t like the competition. Major corporations are always like this – they send their lobbyists to DC and conspire to make doing business extremely hard and expensive for smaller businesses that might pose a threat. Twitter, Facebook, etc are no different.
They conveniently claim that Gab violated their Terms of Service for having “hateful and violent” content without getting rid of it, but we all know that that is utter bullshit. What’s really going on here is that they’re using their Terms of Service as an excuse. They know how this shit goes. If something goes unreported, it gets missed. That’s hardly Gab’s fault. And, as I said, they did everything right when it was brought to their attention.
This is purely political. They’re all a bunch of leftist assholes who want to silence us, and a week before the midterm elections no less. Banning us from their shitty little platforms doesn’t work anymore, so they have to destroy ours. Yet they expect Christians to commit blasphemy by baking a cake for gay weddings. They expect right-wingers to provide them goods and services without complaint, but they can treat us like shit all the time.
Excuse me, but fuck that. I’m in California right now, but I’m going home on Wednesday, and I will vote early if I can, and I’ll definitely be at the polls on November 6. Nothing can keep me from voting straight Republican after this. Stop whining about RINOs because keeping Democrats out of power is the most important thing right now. Even the RINO-est of RINOs is better than any Democrat. Those lousy cunts don’t deserve to be within one hundred light years of the levers of power.
(By the way, I am still as sick as a dog, so I won’t be updating the previous post until I get home, basically. I feel like utter crap right now.)
They secured a new host. Their priority now is to cooperate with law enforcement regarding the bomber or shooter or whatever. Thank God. There might be some downtime tomorrow as they transition.
I have more to say, but I am really sick right now. I am happy to hear this news. Also, discovered a new social network so I’ll write about that when I’m better.
So the Florida “bomber” (I put that in quotes because the things he mailed were nothing more than props – none of them were actual bombs) had an account on Gab. Therefore, Gab’s hosting company has decided to terminate their account effective 9 am on Monday, basically destroying the site, of which, according to Andrew Torba (the owner), will be down for weeks.
The left is pure evil. Plenty of past shooters had accounts with YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Those respective networks didn’t have to be shut down entirely because of one bad user or even a sizable number of bad users. Then again, they all have their own servers.
What pisses me off is that the Gab team didn’t anticipate this. They should have been working on this ages ago. First, Microsoft boots them off of their Azure service and now their host provider does the same thing, all because of ONE user! Gab deleted the guy’s account, saved his posts and forwarded them to law enforcement. And yet this happens anyway. What the hell?
They need to get their own servers. Maybe something will happen tomorrow. I hope so. I really liked Gab, and I can’t imagine using anything else. I am so angry right now.
So he’s been confirmed and sworn in. I’m gonna go salt mining now.
Okay, so, predictably, the left lost their mind over the Kavanaugh confirmation (which was 50 to 48…very close and down party lines). Asshole Hollywood actors have also gotten into it, acting like damn fools. I am going to post a couple of tweets and so on.
Even if Brett Kavanaugh is innocent – which I do not believe – ALL he had to do to bolster the appearance of judicial fitness was to keep his cool for just a few hours. Only a few hours of even-tempered composure. That’s it. He couldn’t.
Well, I believe that he is innocent. He had every right to be as upset as he was. Don’t act like Democrats don’t get angry in public (remember Anthony Weiner? Before his sexting grossness, he was famous for losing his shit on the House floor). He looked pretty even-tempered to me. I mean, he wasn’t screeching and losing his mind like all those leftists protesting him.

Cher is completely insane. Her Twitter feed has been a cancerous tumor on humanity for a very long time. Someone needs to take her fucking computer away from her until she can learn to type and spell properly. She could at least do that.
My rage will not extinguish my hope, it will only organize it. #BelieveWomen #BelieveSurviviors
So, basically, we’re supposed to believe women no matter what. They didn’t believe Juanita Brodderick, or Kathleen Willey, or Paula Jones, or that girl Keith Ellison beat up (even though there was photographic evidence of his abuse). This pisses me off more than anything, this notion that we have to believe women no matter what. First of all, yes, women do lie about being raped. It’s happened plenty of times. Secondly, they only say this whenever a Republican is accused. They weren’t saying this shit about Keith Ellison (then again, they probably don’t know about Keith Ellison’s abuse because the mainstream media has been silent about it).
You can read more at Breitbart, which is where I got the above cancer.
“Another gross day in the history of our country, but the midterms are coming. We are stronger than this bullshit. We can fight and fight and we may not see the results right away, but we will see them. Our daughters will see them. Don’t give up.
Seriously, I think I need chemotherapy now, given all this cancer.
Okay, so here’s Juanita Brodderick bringing the spice by making a really good point:
Absolutely. Will you @ValerieJarrett sign my petition to have Bill Clinton investigated for sex crimes against not one but MANY. Then we will know you SUPPORT ALL SURVIVORS. https://t.co/DNc2R6PsqN
This whole “believe survivors” bullshit is obviously very partisan. One of the left’s favorite tactics is to destroy their right-wing opponents by making sexual assault/sexual harassment accusations against them. This time it didn’t quite work out for them, which is why they’re losing their shit over this.
This attempt to conflate support for due process with opposition to women is so disingenuous and transparent https://t.co/IsNHqPO4DB
Ben Shapiro is kind of a cuck, but he is so right about this. I know reporting a sex crime is really hard. These crimes are also hard to prove, and they’re embarrassing and recounting what happened is also quite traumatic. That being said, it is also important that we respect the rule of law, and in doing that we need to support due process. We all have the right to a fair trial. Even rapists. Rape and sexual assault are serious crimes, and it isn’t right to make false accusations. It isn’t right to prosecute someone without any evidence. If we do that, we minimize the seriousness of the crime.
I’ve said this to myself over and over again…feminists like being able to make false rape accusations, because it gives them power over men. An easy way to ruin a man’s life is to level a false accusation against him, and they get bonus points for being a victim, since feminists are obsessed with victimhood. (Source for above tweets)
The Democrats who think there will be no backlash at the polls in response to how they treated Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court confirmation process should consider this sentiment from a conservative who was not a Trump supporter. From a conservative who has been disgusted by the Trumpified GOP: “I didn’t think I could drag myself to the polls.
Once again, leftist assholes assume that by believing Kavanaugh’s testimony, we’re saying “fuck you” to all sexual abuse survivors. No, we are not. We’re saying that to Christine Blasey-Ford, the other accusers and their supporters because it’s obvious that they’re all lying. It’s obvious that they only made these accusations to keep Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court, and their reason isn’t because he’s a predator or whatever, it’s because he’s a conservative. Another reason is their unhinged hatred for Trump. As I said earlier, they would have done this to any person Trump nominated.
“White women, come get your people.” That is the title of an op-ed published by the New York Times in the aftermath of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. The article’s author, Alexis Grenell, attacks Sen. Susan Collins and Republican women, calling them “gender traitors.” Republican women “are gender traitors.”
Okay, so in order to be a good woman, we must blindly believe every single sexual assault allegation leveled at a Republican. That’s basically what they’re saying. I am so sick of this shit. I’m not a ‘traitor’ to my gender. I don’t know how to explain this…but it’s as if Democrats think they have a claim on ALL women, just like they have a claim to ALL non-white people. They think they fucking own us. They think I’m obligated to be a Democrat and that I’m obligated to believe everything a Democrat says.
In a sit-down interview with CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash, Katz said Ford does not want Democrats to pursue allegations against Kavanaugh if they retake Congress in November. “Professor Ford has not asked for anything of the sort.
She conveniently decided to drop this stupid crusade roughly on the date of the final vote. If someone had sexually assaulted me and got away with it, I’d be on the fucking warpath. Her decision to go public has, so far, amounted to jack shit. If he really is such a horrible predator, this vote shouldn’t have stopped her from pursuing justice. He could just as easily hurt someone else, especially now that he’s gotten away with it (I hate to say that, because I believe he is innocent, but I’m playing the devil’s advocate here). Now it’ll be on her hands.
But she won’t have to worry about that because she’s a fucking liar, and her decision to retreat now is proof of that.
Gardner, who voiced his support for Kavanaugh’s confirmation in July and continued to support the justice throughout the confirmation process, told Fox News Sunday his wife not only received the graphic message, but several of his family members had their names and addressed posted publicly in a process also known as “doxxing.”
But we’re the violent ones. I believe this, because this is their MO. This is what leftists do whenever their power is threatened.
Typing “kill” into Twitter’s search function currently returns a shocking result at the top of its search suggestions: “#KillKavanaugh.” It’s also currently the third autocompleted suggestion in searches for “ki” and the fourth suggestion in searches for “k” as of this writing.
Oh, but I get banned from Twitter for arguing with leftists. But this shit, a whole hashtag calling for the murder of someone is apparently, totally okay. Fuck Twatter.
The confirmation hearings on Brett Kavanaugh were disgusting, driven by Democrats who held a vicious 36-year-old allegation of sexual assault against the Supreme Court nominee until the 11th hour and then set about tearing down a good man who’d work his whole life to achieve his dreams of serving
Well, not really, because he’s on the Supreme Court now. Granted, he’ll be like Justice Clarence Thomas – there will always be dillweed asshole leftists bringing this up anytime his name is mentioned, but at the end of the day, he’ll be voting right alongside Justice Clarence. I do worry about his wife and children, however. They seem to be decent, well-adjusted people, so in time I think they will be okay. But we’re supposed to see leftists as poor put-upon victims while they brag about ruining people’s lives.
Leftists had a rough day, Saturday, as the Senate voted to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to the nation’s highest court, and for the most part, they didn’t hide their despair. With Handmaids on Capitol Hill and protesters on the National Mall, leftists turned downtown Washington, D.C., into a massive, ongoing temper tantrum.
As I said, they’re all insane. Makes me want to vote right now but I have to wait. I am very much looking forward to voting straight Republican.
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) faced a torrent of death threats and abuse on Twitter following her declaration that she would vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, and her remarks in defense of the presumption of innocence. So far, Twitter has taken no action, allowing the threats against a sitting Senator to remain on the platform.
Senator Collins is seriously one of the most left-wing Republican senators ever, but that clearly won’t help her here. As I said, they’re all fucking insane. Oh, and of course Twitter does absolutely nothing, even though threatening the life of anyone, much less a senator, is a fucking crime. But go ahead and ban people for getting too salty with snowflakes.
Chuck Wendig seems upset. No, we don’t expect you to know who is he, we didn’t and honestly, we still don’t (although his bio suggests he may be a writer of some sort) BUT after going through thousands of Kavanaugh meltdowns on Twitter, he should be famous for this one.
Okay, this douchebag has given us permission to ditch civility and go all apeshit on any liberal we come across. Cool. Does this idiot realize that this shit goes both ways? And we’re the ones with the guns, champ.
Oh, and Twitchy…Jesus those headlines. They’re so cringey.
Fuck Trump. But he’s just the ugly fake-gold mask they’ve put on this thing. Fuck all the GOP, fuck that blubbering, bristling frat boy judge, fuck McConnell, Ryan, Grassley, Collins, every last one of them. Fuck them for how they’ve shamed victims and helped dismantle democracy.
This shit again? We’re not attacking all sex abuse survivors! Christine Blasey-Ford represents nobody but herself. We do have compassion for survivors and victims. We just don’t believe her. She’s a liar. We do not believe her because she has presented no evidence to prove that what she’s saying is true. What part of that can you dipshits not understand?
Well, if you hadn’t said those SASSY WORDS and demonstrated ANGER at our whittled-down democracy, I for a second might’ve been convinced not to eat this baby. But fie! Fie on you! Your incivility MADE me eat this baby!
This is retarded and makes no sense. And who the fuck uses the word “sassy”? This isn’t 1992, asswipe. You cunts haven’t been civil for the past fifty years and you know it So yeah, I’m done with being civil too. You punch me, I shoot you. Anyway, you should read the comments at the Twitchy site. They’re hilarious.
After spending weeks and weeks and weeks writing about the Left’s response to even the idea of Kavanaugh being confirmed, we knew that once it happened on Saturday (woot!) that the explosion on Twitter would be monumental. And hilarious.
More insanity from the left. Cry harder, bitches. A selection of especially insane tweets from the post above:
@PolitiBunny I know you’ve probably seen this one, but it’s my favorite. For some reason, the verified check marks make them better.
Nancy Lee Grahn is some no-name actress who posts a lot on Twatter (she clearly has nothing better to do), and I believe she got me banned from Twitter so many years ago. I just remember talking shit to her a few years ago. Anyway, as you can see here, she is clearly insane, although was sane enough to delete the post. The Internet, however, is forever. Sounds like a bouncy story from DU or something. How convenient that a “Latino” woman was nearby to give her a cuddle and some reassurance. *eyeroll*
They really think Roe v Wade is utterly done after this. This is one reason why they’re freaking out so badly. They’re all a bunch of sex-addicted sluts who want to be able to murder their babies so they can continue to sleep around, and as I’ve said before, they’re so obsessed with casual sex that they’re willing to commit genocide to keep doing it. I wish I witnessed this psycho’s meltdown. It was probably hilarious.
Im literally shaking right now. They elected a rapist. I am going to need funds for therapy now. As a muslim woman of colour, I am no longer feel safe in the West! Anything helps 🙁 https://t.co/fpT5vm5yRi I made a donation page.
This fucking Musloid. Your bretheren in the Middle East rape women left and right. Your brethren in Europe – those supposed ‘refugees’ rape women left and right. Yet you have no problem with that. Furthermore, Kavanaugh was never actually accused of rape, which is different than sexual assault. The only accusation that came close to rape was the allegation that he and Mark Judge attended gang rape parties (but the accuser never actually saw them rape anyone). So, if you no longer feel safe in the West, go back to the Middle East, where you’ll be stoned to death for holding a boy’s hand.
Oh, and she’s grifting for money. I guess she needs some new hijabs or something.
Okay, this is as much as I can stand. My laptop’s battery is kind of running down anyway. This was fun, though. I love their pain and misery. I just fucking love it, and I hope they suffer for centuries to come.
So, shortly after the 2016 Presidential election – in fact, in direct response to it, the mainstream media decided that they needed to blame something for their epic fuck up. They decided to blame sites like Breitbart and the Daily Wire and such as peddling fake news. Trump decided to turn it around on them, labeling them fake news and basically appropriated the term for his own use.
However, fake news was a very real phenomenon. In fact, I got quite fed up with the shitty sites people kept linking to on Facebook. I was a member of a few conservative groups and I’d keep seeing posts from questionable sites loaded with crappy ads and shitty site designs. Then, of course, leftists kept getting duped by satirical sites and promoted those stories as actual news. Most satirical sites had a disclaimer at the bottom, so this was entirely on the leftists and their wishful thinking.
Yes, I am sure that these crappy blogs and satirical sites had a role in the outcome of the 2016 election, but a minor one. That being said, I haven’t encountered many fake news sites ever since I cleaned up my Facebook feed.
On Friday, the world lost one of the greats, Dick Van Dyke. The comedian and actor spent his lifetime keeping us entertained and reminding us that America is, at its core, a wholesome place. Van Dyke taught us that good, Christian morals are how we can get through as a nation, and he wanted to …
First of all, take a good look at the domain name. It’s “abcnews.live” – ABC would never bother with that domain extension, and if they did, it wouldn’t be for a basic news site. It’d probably be used for a live feed that could be streamed. Secondly, go ahead and look at the site in question. Hover your mouse cursor over the Breitbart link. Here’s a screenshot of what it says when you do that:
You’ll have to click on it to enlarge it, but if you look at the status bar at the bottom of the screen, it has a nice, charming message for all us evil right-wingers: “if you believe this, you are an idiot.” Here’s an archive link in case they change it.
So, being that I’m always skeptical, especially about celebrities proclaiming their love for anyone on the right, I went straight to Breitbart and did a search. Their most recent post on Dick Van Dyke is about how much he looooooved Bernie Sanders. Yes, he’s a Bernie Bro. Or was, back in 2016. Oh, and he’s not dead, obviously.
During brief introductory remarks at Santa Barbara City college, the 90-year-old star of the Dick Van Dyke Show said he had a “really important” message for older voters. “Mostly I want to be here to talk to my generation,” Van Dyke said, according to the Hill. “I have a really important message for them.
So, with this in mind, it’s important to learn how to tell the fake news from the real news.
Check the website for “this is satire” disclaimers. They’ll usually be found at the bottom of the page or on an ‘About Us’ page.
Check the sources cited. If there’s any anomalies with the links, it’s BS. If they don’t bother with a link to a source at all, it’s BS. If their source is another sketchy site, it’s BS.
I hate to advise this, but cross check with mainstream media sites and Wikipedia. If something is true, they usually get around to writing about it eventually.
If there’s no ‘About Me’ or ‘About Us’ page, then it’s probably BS.
And, of course, there’s obvious stuff, like misspellings, punctuation errors, getting basic facts wrong, etc. Whoever runs the abcnews.live site, they’re idiot leftists who have nothing but contempt for right wingers. Just move your cursor over any link on any post. There’s almost always a nasty message for us. Furthermore, they still have a Meta section! What that is, is a section, or widget for WordPress users that allows you, the owner, or a contributor, to log into the blog’s admin section and make a post or do other maintenance, like update plug-ins and such. A lot of mainstream media organizations use WordPress, but they don’t leave the Meta section on their pages.
I just uploaded this very basic video recording of me browsing this fake news site: An Example of Fake News. I suppose the site is supposed to be satirical, but they don’t state as much anywhere on their site. That’s highly irresponsible. After all, the left keeps falling for satirical articles on Sarah Palin (this one is old, but relevant):
The Daily Currant is a satire site, but that didn’t stop CNN primetime anchor Piers Morgan from gleefully tweeting out a Currant story attacking Sarah |
This has happened a lot over the years. Liberals read satirical posts on Sarah Palin and, thanks to their wishful thinking, tweet it as if it were absolute truth. Then it spreads all over social media and liberals everywhere end up believing it, and by then it’s too late to really bother with a retraction. That’s why fake news is such a problem.
Oh, and one more example for the road (I really love Embedly, lol):
The Sarah Palin Story is a cautionary tale about what can happen when politics and celebrity meet. Fox News and their once-upon-a-time darling Palin recently parted ways after three years. But never fear. Palin has a new media outlet by which to share her commentary.
So, apparently, this has been a problem for years.
