Democrats: vote for us, we’ll wear you down, dox, and bully you but know we care…

Finally, an honest Democrats advert (made by someone other than the Democrats)

Too good not to share:

….
If they didn’t have double standards they’d have no standards at all.

This is the great work of Allie Beth Stuckey  — her channel.

        Yes, it did. Right at: “We’re the party of science: voting for us will end hurricanes, wild fires and tornados …”

        No hurricanes means No Sun. For a party of (ha ha) science they must know that :-D

        and No Sun = No climate, no temperatures, no weather, no life, nothing.

        They claim to be the party of Science, si they must know that.

          Yes, agreed, but that’s really old stuff. Even mention of Man made Global Warming vanished a decade ago. Then Climate Change. Hurricane activity has dropped remarkably with 500,000 serious windmills.

          But now it’s Climate Extinction which is the really truly serious imminent threat to all life on earth. Except no one knows what it is, but it’s really scary and extinction. Like the dinosaurs. Hurricanes, wild fires and tornadoes are nothing compared to Climate Extinction. Vote Democrat. Only a fascist government can stop climate extinction.

            And is again imminent which is why the planetary magnetic field is failing?

            Even the Democraps can’t fight that …

      This is turning out to be the most corrupt election ever.

      All US elections are corrupt, particularly in Republican states where the name of the game has always been to try to make it as difficult as possible for the poor and minorities to vote. In a democracy it should be the aim of all state institutions to maximize turnout, not to try to disenfranchise as many as possible.

    It’s excellent but the problem with trying to satirise the Left is that it turns out to be true.

    For example, the DemocRATS were the original party that supported slavery while Republicans opposed it. Today, instead of seeing Black people as labour slaves they see them as Democrat voting slaves and also deliberately keep them on endless welfare whereas Trump has created the greatest Black employment ever.

    The bullying is spreading. Co-founder of The Intercept, Greenwarld is resigning because they censored his own articles that were about to expose the truth about Biden. Greenwarld wrote:
    “The same trends of repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet I co-founded, culminating in censorship of my own articles.”

    Fortunately, we still have the Internet and free access to many other outlets to find the truth behind Biden, but for how long?

    • #

      I was astounded to receive on my phone, via Yahoo, an article claiming that there was no proof whatsoever of selective reporting by the media, and that conservative concerns were completely misplaced and unable to be substantiated. (or words to that effect)

      Either the idiot who wrote this is so completely disconnected that he/she is unable to trusted, or they know about the utter bias but cannot recognise it as such, or they know about it but choose to not report. Either way its totally ridiculous, but that is apparently what is acceptable these days.

      A friend in the US keeps bombarding me with Stephen Colbert videos (he’s a comedian but I do not find him funny at all.. this is the same with all Leftist comedians.) and about how Trump has destroyed the US and we need Biden to make things right again… Total delusion and he seems incapable of understanding that there is a different view…

    The art of telling lies and convincing people they are not lies but the truth is well understood by the pros in marketing and other areas. It’s a big business and people make lots of money training others in that art. It what makes so many gullible people fall for their lies. However, when it comes to politics there’s a real danger it will lead to a tyranny. Is that what most people really want on either side? Of course not. So the solution is simple. In politics people need to wake up and do their own research before voting with an open mind. Simple but unfortunately not easy. Hence the situation the West is going through now. If our worst fears are realised after the US election and Biden wins, it leaves only one option; crash and burn. Then and only then will most people wake up to reality.

      PeterS

      Having said all that, let’s look on the bright side. Placing on my rose coloured glasses I can see it’s possible a Biden win would lead to very little change. He might be like Obama and do very little. He might even surprise all and be more like Trump (whoops, my glasses just fogged up). Anyway, let’s not worry too much. After all there’s nothing much we can do. However, I do see the US election result as a great litmus test of the American psyche, good or bad. The other point is what will the MSM do if Biden is President? Will then ever be critical of him no matter what he does? If Biden does a lot of bad things and the MSM keep covering it up, the next election result in 4 years will be a clear win for the Republican side, assuming the American psyche isn’t all screwed up by then by the MSM, which brings me to my earlier point that people need to think for themselves and do their own research, something that’s too hard for too may. This is why as a realist I see not alternative, crash and burn here we come.

    Furiously curious

    I’m feeling pretty ambivalent about next week. One side or other’s high expectations will be splattered with a huge dinosaur egg, or it may even be close?? Whoever wins we are going to be stuck with armies of woke white ants eating out everything. They are so tuned into their ideology, their minds are not on their actual jobs. Woke=broke. You have to go a fair way back to find any competence in the left. In the 80s they did manage, and even got some things done. Actually both sides now look pretty light on inspiration. It’s the black hole on the hill these days.
    Some commentators are quoting pre poll counts, but I cant see how they have much relevance. We don’t know what the percentage of either sides’ vote they are. The Rep numbers are high, but that’s probably just their determination to vote in person, as against the Dems decision to postal vote. No one turns up to the Dem rallies, so why would they turn up to vote? There’s no indication on the numbers of postals, so any projecting from early voting is really sketchy.
    I don’t understand, if someone goes in to vote and is told they already have, does that show postal vote fraud? (so the postal votes are already counted??? which as far as i know isn’t true?) or does it come from early in person voting? There is a postal choice for special circumstances too.
    Biden’s family charity funds probably wont have any effect. Apart from the censorship, and a lot of the Dems having already voted, Biden was always just an empty, policy free, space, to not frighten off any anti Trumpers. The vote was never Trump/Biden, it’s just Trump/anti Trump.

      They are having it both ways. Unions are heavily invested in unreliables via their superannuation funds plus large numbers of their members work within the real power generation industry. They want to keep their members employed in genuine power production so they can keep paying their substantial union dues to keep the highly overpaid head union thugs in power and luxury.

      If you are that confident, David, why not put your money where your mouth is? Betfair is currently offering odds of 2.92 on Trump to win with Biden at only 1.52. That is a massive difference in a two horse race that is normally very close, and where the incumbent has an inherent advantage. £227m has been bet so far, so this is a pretty big proxy opinion poll.

    Twitter Suspends U.S. Border Chief For Touting Wall’s Protection From Criminals: Report

    “Apparently violating platform rules governing ‘hateful conduct’”

    By  Joseph Curl

    Oct 30, 2020   DailyWire.com

    Twitter has suspended U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan for a post in which he touted the benefits of the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a new report.

    “According to screenshots shared exclusively with The Federalist, Twitter locked Morgan’s account Wednesday afternoon for apparently violating platform rules governing ‘hateful conduct’ after the commissioner attempted to tweet about the wall’s benefits,” The Federalist reported.

      More info. Looks interesting.
      https://www.digitaltrends.com/news/ground-news-app-media-bias/

      We are all guilty of reading news we agree with and a new study by Pew Research Center shows just how deeply embedded habit is when it comes to political news. The study found that “no other source comes close to rivaling Fox News’ appeal to Republicans, a number of sources other than CNN are also highly trusted and frequently used by Democrats.”

      But a new app hopes to make Americans’ news diet a bit more diverse, or at least educate them on their media biases.

      Ground News was developed by NASA engineer Harleen Kaur, who says her background in engineering is what led her to develop it. “It’s amazing we have so much technology around us, but we can’t find a simple, reliable way to consume news,” she said, citing the general mistrust of news outlets today and the sheer volume of news available.

      President Donald Trump’s public and vocal presence on Twitter in particular has amplified the American public’s thoughts about various media outlets, adding fuel to the fire burning across the political spectrum. Ground News, which harnesses the power of an algorithm, almost feels like a return to pre-Twitter journalism.

        I have no idea how the App will develop. Journalism and opinions are always prone to some kind off bias. However trying to inform as neutrally as possible would result in less public interest for many stories and events. Clickbait and headlines with misleading loud exaggerations only serve to hype or scare people. Daily drumbeating fear isn’t healthy and will alienate, something we all have to watch out for. I know what indoctrination is and how manipulates. Whole societies have often fallen victim to group pressures, not good for anyone.
