    Not exactly. The news was real, but it was presented in a way that is deceptive. These days both sides engage in both fake news and deceptive news tactics. It's frustrating.

    No. Again, words have meanings, so do phrases. A false narrative is one where facts may be presented, but a tale is woven to distort the story.

    In this case did you come away thinking "Those poor Hispanics, yelled at by a drunk asshole and the cops did nothing". If so, the author of that narrative put exactly the correct spin on it.


    Like all these pieces Farside is linking to, as though suddenly. out of the blue, racists are shouting mean things at colored people only because they've been emboldened by Trump and his absolute crushing victory over the left and everything decent.

    When in truth, asshole racists been shoutin mean things at darkies since forever. It just wasn't 'news' before.
    I wouldn't even censor you.

    I'll grant that, some people do use the term 'false narrative' as a way of dismissing news they don't like or agree with and use it in the same manner as 'fake news'.

    Personally, if I'm going to hate somebody it's because of what they do. Not because of something stupid like skin tone. It's like hating somebody because they have blue eyes or some shit like that. It doesn't make that right either exactly, but eh. Human here. At least I don't have an irrational hatred of all things French.

    I just have a perfectly rational hatred of all things Trump.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.

    You know, we can find articles of illegals murdering and raping people all over the place. Do you think that these citations mean much overall? They're exceptions to the rule, not the rule itself. Just like the illegals that are rapists and murderers are the exceptions to the rule.

    The media, overall, kind of already blew their chance to really send the current POTUS and his astonishing ego off the deep end; as they needed to start doing what I suggest next the day after he got elected (though the effects could still be interesting were they to start this now):

    He likes seeing his name everywhere, and the bigger the headline the more he likes it. So, to any and all media outlets everywhere:

    DON'T USE HIS NAME!

    Instead of "Trump Signs New Proclamation" as a headline, say "President Signs New Proclamation". Instead of referring to the "latest Trump tweet", call it the "latest POTUS tweet". Refer only to the position or the office, not the man.

    He'd shit himself.

Guess how much the Koch bros., the Mercers, the Murdochs, Adelson, et al. spend to influence elections and undermine democracy throughout the world? I'll give you a hint: one of them owns a propaganda cable channel that consistently spreads lies to support Trump.

    Oh look, another ignorant, far-right talking point with zero basis in fact. Christ, you don't even know what globalism means, for fuck's sake. Go on, tell me, as you type it out on your Chinese-made keyboard, sitting your fat, stupid arse down on your shitty, Chinese-made faux-leather chair and chug your off-brand, knock-off cola (from China).

    The multiple Ad Hominem attacks employed in this latest response does not improve the points you are attempting to make.

    Here is a challenge for you Kzach, how many relevant posts in a row can you provide without resorting to these types of attacks? Surprise us.

    That would work. Also if they just started ignoring his tweets, treat his tweets for what they are: old man yells at clouds on twitter.

    Before Trump was elected? Occasionally one. A month. Since? Zero. Trump really got under Kzach's skin in a strangely personal manner. Same with Spoony.

    In a strange way, not only is Trump, "old man yells at clouds on [the Internet]" but he made Kzach and Spoony also into "old man yells at clouds on [the Internet]."

    I also have to give Xyxox credit for not staying on the forum and continuously spewing hate-filled posts. [Insert President Name] Derangement Syndrome has been growing increasingly common. The fixation is no longer centered around the individual in office, but former presidents (Clinton, Bush, Obama) and presidential candidates (Hillary) as well. Each successive fixation seems to be more severe than the last.

    Once a person (or group) is demonized cooperation, reflection, and mutual respect give way to extreme radical beliefs/actions. The actions of the demonized are no longer viewed as 'bad' but 'evil' to be righteously extinguished. The pursuit of 'ends justify the means' is the symptom of a sick/dysfunctional society.

    I’m not so deranged that I won’t defend Trump when he does get something right. He didn’t bow to the Queen of England today and most of his haters are livid. But - He’s a head of state and he should never bow to anyone. Heads of State just don’t do that, and when Obama was doing it he was wrong.

    Hey fuckwit, you should probably learn what an ad hominem actually is before you accuse someone else of it and commit an argument from fallacy while also being a hypocritical moron and committing an ad hominem in doing so.

    Gee, I wonder why? Could it be because the leader of the free world is a fucking autocratic, narcissistic, moronic, racist who is actively working to fuck over the rest of the world (including America) all for his own selfish aggrandisement?

    Fucking moron.

    Fuck you're stupid. If you can't see how destructive Trump is and has been to world security and stability, then you deserve the coming wars that you will have directly played a role in due to your abject stupidity.

    Antifa supporter arrested with "a "concerning" amount of bomb-making equipment and illegal guns". For some reason the article waits until the half-way point to even mention the "sheriff's department had earlier said Einerwold was connected to Antifa."

    I like hats.
