Thread: Everyone needs to see this to understand how we got to this point...

  1. #1

    Exclamation Everyone needs to see this to understand how we got to this point...

    This mini documentary from NYTIMES is from 2018 but it connects the dots on how we got to angry mobs burning down cities and storming our capitol. This explains the origin of "fake news" and how disinformation is used to destabilize governments and civil societies. Of course this is not the only factor, but this kind of information attacks on our democracy play a HUGE part in the beginnings of the end.

    Stick to creating threads where you celebrate people being killed that you disagree with politically.

    I don't know if you knew this... it seems like maybe you don't. But Russia (the governmental entity / military anyway) is actually an adversary that targets us consistently. Hybrid war is a thing, and it's on now. Continuing to be like "lol, Russia" every time it comes up kinda makes you seem like your head is buried in the sand. You might as well not say anything at all, it would make you appear less ignorant.

    If your team didn't blame Russia for EVERYTHING, maybe we would listen.

    But as it stands now.. Russia is your boogyman. Just like systemic racism.

    Russia is to blame for a myriad of problems, but no, they aren't a boogeyman. You're thinking of the right-wing's obsession with Antifa.

    No. I'm literally speaking of Russia and how the extremely stupid left (like you) continues to blame them for everything.

    Nobody here blames Russia for everything.

    It would be notable if when Russia was blamed for something they actually did, you conceded that they did it instead of playing this same game every time.

    You fail daily to account for the fact that: Russia is in fact targeting us daily in a variety of ways (Hybrid warfare), and that systemic racism is in fact an actual thing that causes a great deal of disparity in how "justice" is dispensed in this country, among other things. Acting like these two problems that face our country are myths, kinda makes it seem like you're on the side of: Russia or racism.

    Not "everything," but enough. But okay, Tardbandit, let's point out the errors in your position: believing it requires you to ignore:

    1) the Trump-appointed DNI and other IC agencies run by Trump appointees, who have repeatedly confirmed Russia's ongoing attacks against the US
    2) the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee's bipartisan report on those ongoing Russian activities and the Trump 2016 campaign's eager participation with known Russian intelligence agents
    3) the numerous conclusions of the Republican-led Mueller investigation, appointed by Trump's hand-picked deputy Attorney General, which showed the numerous times people in Trump's orbit, including his family, eagerly interacted with known Russian agents, welcomed their help/etc.

    Sticking your head in the sand doesn't constitute a reasoned position. It makes you a partisan imbecile who puts party before country.
