I only hope that when you realize what kind of deal with the devil you are making, you don't also find yourself up against a wall and realize there is no one left to fight for you.

The kind of world you think you are wanting always comes with purges, lots of purges. I'll be one of the lucky ones. They'll take me out early because I'll fight.


What happens if they take your keyboard?

I know. When atheist/socialists use ""brothers keeper" to sell socialism, it irritates me.


Are you talking about the "My Brother's Keeper" initiative that Obama pushes?


Yay!

Yep.

One individual helping another individual does not equate to government taking from the successful to redistribute to the less successful.


That program is one that tries to help inner city black youth from getting involved in gangs and violence.

It's a great program and we should support such a thing to curb the uprising of more inner city "thugs".


Then sell it as that.

Don't DARE try to "guilt" people into accepting that government is going to take more.

Propaganda can also be quite dangerous. In the hands of the right people, or wrong people depending on your personal opinion, propaganda can lead to horrors and atrocities that stain the fabric of human history for generations to come.


Well that was rich.

'in the hands of the right people' !!!

I hate to break it to you.

ALL propaganda has but only one purpose.

To further a cause at the EXPENSE of someone else.

Like that hit piece in the op. That was nothing, but propaganda.

Don't forget now the entire practical aim of American politics is x trying to convince the 'masses' they are better than y.

When the reality is it is a false choice fallacy.

Excellent post. I recognized this years ago, but right-wing propaganda is severely undermining America's status as an advanced nation. Look at how many people now believe that education is bad, science is bad, secular government is bad, Social security, unions, birth control- basically everything that makes a country not a third world hellhole.

Of course there's plenty of left wing propaganda as well, but the right wing is pushing America over a giant cliff with insanely powerful and wealthy elites and insane morons destroying America from both sides at the same time.

What kills the Left is when their agendas get exposed.

Much of the so called "Right Wing" conspiracies and propaganda is actually real.

The 90s brought in the internet hyperbole.

The lack of rebuttals is the main problem of the "Left".

For decades, they enjoyed the luxury of being able to dodge exposures because they controlled all the major media.

Those days are long gone.

" There was a demand for a politician that would step in to that void and represent the radicalized views of the brainwashed. "

Your use of the abjective term ' Brainwashed " in that sentence negates your entire post of exceptability unless you somehow substantiate such a Generalized Claim . It sounds more like a Delusional Rant than an Object Discourse of the Body Politic to such an astute observer as myself.

What kills the right is when you bring facts into the mix.


PolitiFact Says Republicans Lie Three Times More Often Than Democrats, According To New Study

All Politicians Lie. Some Lie More Than Others.

Now that is bad, but what is worse is that the constituents buy them and rarely fact check what they are being told and that is sad.

Exactly!!!

I never really understood what all the "he's not a conservative" BS was about.

Who gives a rats!

Trump is sort of a centrist with good ideas from both sides.

Isn't that the best of both worlds?

He is fair in my opinion.

Propaganda be damned and woe to those who can't see through it.

Its that silly right wing dance, tip toe around the subject in thread, fling insults, post memes that say funny things, oh and dont forgot the smiley faces.

I honestly wish they could see how there behing played by both sides.

Oh and the leftish propaganda is grade school work compared to fox news, they cant even get there lies together, cnn and msnbc wish they could be like fox.


That Fox meme is just left wing propaganda.

Parroted ad infinatum everywhere.

That is just spreading lies.

Oh that particular rabble has always existed in this country & unfortunately they have net access so now we have to listen to their rantings.

The dumbing down of the GOP started with Nixon & the southern strategy where they courted the racists.
Next Ronny Raygun brought in the Dominionist religulous faction, then of course you recently had the Teabagger invasion.
Those people are so out of touch with modern American culture they actually called themselves that until people started laughing at them.

Really what your seeing is those that are too "whatever" to cope in modern society are lashing out.
Unfortunately for them short of a civilization crumbling catastrophe the world is just gonna pass them by anyway.

The danger is they may be willing to burn the world or at least their part of it so they can feel in control again.

I'm supposed to believe politifacts?

Obviously you and others do, why?

I watch Fox news. I see and hear things with my own eyes and ears, news is news, i also watch local chinese news and they have the same stuff.

Politifact must be talking about the opinion shows they don't like.

Any other ratings for CNN, al jazeera, BBC etc?

This last page of comments really drive home some of the points I discussed in the OP. Some people can't seem to see past the end of their own noses to realize they are completely brainwashed.

You people should go see Batman vs Superman.

My friend and I had the same thoughts about it.

He said it reminded him of the presidential race.

I agree, it was uncanny in a way.

Really good movie, btw.

That is just sad.

The only thing that has been 'proven' is the LEFT has deluded themselves in to thinking they are better than the RIGHT.

No one has said that the Left is better than the Right. What is sad is that you refuse to actually address the topic at hand, which is entirely true, and try to change the subject to the Left.

Of course, that's what you do in these sorts of threads. You are unable to come to terms with reality and so you inject red herrings in an attempt to change the focus.

So it is your own delusional knee-jerk reactions that are sad here. Man-up, grow a pair and be honest for once.
