I understand what you're saying, I really do... but campaign bullsh#t compared to the full on media lies and the deep dark corners right wingers go for their specialized misinformation fix.... there's just no comparison.

And we never got to see the RNC Trump emails did we? I'' not convinced Hillary is the first person to get a debate question early, or to have their party's national committee pick a favorite. And it's not like Left want that sh*t and crave it.

The threads linking to a dumb repeating YouTube video claiming Hillary is having a seizure due to Parkinson's, the dumb birther thing, the Obama secret Muslim terrorist, the healthcare death panels.... Right wingers are HOOKED on their misinformation and it's become this HUGE part of the right wing business model.

Without misinformation Right wing has no platform. They are anti-climate science and use a platform of misinformation to justify their position.

They're just full of sh#t and it's why the majority of people have such little respect for them.

BLM is a white hating terrorist organization.
Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton go to pedophile sex parties.
Obama is a secret Muslim terrorist AND a Socialist communist who pals around with terrorists.
Obama is trying to start a race war.
Climate Change is a global hoax

What else... what other bullsh#t is there? There's so much. It's hard to remember it all because so much sh#t gets thrown into the mix.

This addiction is unhealthy. It's hurting the world. It needs to stop.

Except, the stories he mentioned came from the echo chamber. They are the direct product of the echo chamber -- media outlets (if you can call them that) who incite people for profit, who tell them exactly what they want to hear so they can increase their pageviews, even if it means they have to fabricate the stories from whole cloth.

There are plenty of media-based echo chambers in America, but most of them are biased presentations of legitimate news stories. The bias is a problem, and the world would be better off without it, but it's not quite the same thing as an echo chamber based on mountains of outright lies.

Do tell us, what do you call a group of people who call for the deaths of police officers, and white people in general?...





There are plenty of videos showing BLM protestors, and even the founders calling for the deaths of police officers and whites in general...

But in your progressive little world that is a lie huh?...

Of course, to someone who has been brainwashed by the "progressives" it somehow, in some other progressive reality it doesn't sound as a racist group... That's fresh...

BTW, President Obama wants to fight "climate change" by telling truckers that they can avoid climate change regulations by paying a hefty fee... Yeah, like paying Obama and his pals is going to make global warming stop...

Obama Says Truckers Must Pay Fine To Avoid New Climate Regs

It seems that somehow in your little progressive minds paying a fee to the democrats is going to stop climate change meanwhile truckers continue doing what they have been doing all along...except they now have to pay more money to avoid these regulations...

BTW, there is plenty of evidence that shows President Obama and his administration have been releasing over 167,000 illegal criminals in total meanwhile deporting more illegal non-criminals than any other President, and the left hail Obama as "the champion of illegals"...



You seriously need to rethink what propaganda is, because you seem to have swallowed the whole progressive kool-aid pitcher...

Fake News from the left




Note the time of this news, first thing election morning.

In 2008 I respected the huffington post, now it's like the national enquirer for the left.
Just BS left wing propaganda meant to tickle the eyes and ears of SJW, feminists, and liberal progressives.
Even the Young Turks condemned them this election cycle, and they are on the same side.

Pathetic.

Unfortunately, to pooh pooh a news source because of its name and not the substance of the article, is fallacious. Even the National Enquirer has been correct.


Am I to believe that you regularly read the National Enquirer?

Interesting

You working on Bannon's PR team now?

Leftist authoritarians wanting to censor and end free speech and control the flow and type of information.

This is my shocked face.



The left promotes free speech. It is the right that often uses derogatory terms for the left when it is exercised.


The left promoting free speech is like a vegan promoting Jim's Steakhouse.

I don't believe you.

Sounds like you're spewing propaganda. I agree with you that extreme fringe left nutcases want to limit free speech, but to simply state in broad strokes that the left in general wants to limit the 1st amendment is ridiculous. Extreme right people are opposed to people not standing up for the national anthem, in essence, they are opposed to one's freedom of self expression. There's loonies on both sides here, let's not forget that.

Until you have a divine power to understand the tens of millions of people that are on the left, and know that each and every left individual wants to systematically limit free speech, I'll be on the same page as you...


Here's a small snipped in history of the lefts promoting free speech.

The left are the one's who had looked at the 1st amendment as a "living breathing document" (not that i agree with such an interpretation). During the vietnam war, there were students who wore black bands on their sleeves to protest the war. Students got into a legal dispute, and it went up to the supreme court. Conservative justices concluded that the 1st amendment does not say anything about free speech pertaining to something you wear on your clothes. And they are right, regarding a strict interpretation, it doesn't state that anywhere in the 1st amendment. This is what the conservative justices believed at the time.

On the flipside of the coin, the liberal judges concluded that free speech can have it's expression manifest in symbolic terms, such as the case of the black band of protest. Because of the evil left having a majority of seats in the court, and with their diabolical non-strict interpretation of the constitution, free speech was extended and protected into other forms of expression, SICK!

The leftists then aren't the same leftists now.

To compare the two is erroneous.

We've seen countless examples of cries to ban "offensive speech". We see on-line agencies banning accounts based on ideology. We even have the president and politicians bemoaning alternative news and their cries of censorship.

It's too big to ignore any longer.

Just my opinion, of course.

Your boy Trump - the president elect - doesn't agree with you. He believes in censorship big time

This is what he has to say to people exercising their right to free speech:


The Theater must always be a safe and special place.The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!



Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing.This should not happen!


Maybe you should have a word with him? About getting a thicker skin - maybe explain how the 1st works here in these United States of America?

Just a thought

BLM is scum. They used to be inclusive and would reach out to ALL races, but it has festered into this plague. By now I think people from both sides from the political spectrum (not including the extreme left) are aware that BLM is national embarrassment. A poor excuse of what a movement and organization is.

J Edgar Hoover was one crooked person, but if he were here today and the FBI were to utilize the COINTELPRO program to dismantile and dissolve BLM, I'd leap a mile high with joy.

BLM has just as much a right to free expression as any other group.

Just because the message isn't what you like, should never be a basis for censorship.

I think the problem is that things have turned into a slippery slope. There have very well been instances where banning "hate speech" was absolutely warranted. And that unfortunately set a precedence to ban "offensive speech" by the butthurt left. Then this lead to the banning of accounts, then to the blacklist of alternative websites. And then the crybabies bat a blind eye when their own kin is acting deplorably.

But again, the fringe left constructed this fiasco. There's no way you can attribute it to all lefts, unless there's a pew poll to back up your claim. In high school and in college I've taken the political spectrum tests and it indicates that I am actually on the fringe left side of the specturm as well
. With that being said, I do not agree with what's going on. Why you might ask? That's because you have the left, and then you have the butthurt left.

The butthurts are perpetuating this, the other ones like me, and others in this thread have openly disavowed such actions. And in fact, LIKE to have our ideas challenged, (it's the reason why I hate listening to NPR radio unless they have the conservatives come on the telephone line to rattle the liberals)

But I ultimately, I think I see where you're coming from, there's SO MANY butthurt liberals that it could possibly be justified to just generalize the group as a whole. Who knows? At this point, the butthurts could be the majority.... orrrr the vocal minority. While the regular lefts are just openly accepting what has happened and therefore have no need to cause a ruckus .
