Scottie’s world today
Conservatives coordinate corporate fascism.
Stories with no context are propaganda. White supremacy runs on propaganda.
The misinformation right wing media tries to keep their base riled up with anger and outrage to keep them engaged. They know if the base is angry they will be more active in the cause. But anger clouds judgement and the right wing media misleads to get the desired actions from the base. The result is cognitive dissidence on a massive scale. The base has to deny reality and create conspiracy fantasies to make the ideas work. Normal things are taken as if nefarious plots. A guy they call sleep Joe and claim has lost his mental abilities is also a mastermind taking away their nebulous freedom thing. The right uses the same arguments in support of their conspiracies that they refute on things they do not want others to have the freedom to do. Such as abortion. Against vaccines then it is their body their choice, but if it is a woman wanting an abortion it is her body but someone else’s choice mandated by law.
Conservative gospel: think only of yourself while thinking the worst in others. Convert your shame into anger. Never atone.
It’s a FUCKING DEATH CULT!
Seems as though the same christian Taliban that believes Transgender schoolgirls will somehow utilize their penile extremity to their advantage in sports, didn’t think the massive strength and abilities of the Williams sisters put an unfair advantage over other girls in Tennis.
Misleading right wing media cartoons / memes
This is the craziness that the right promotes about public health mandates. Creating rules that keep the public safe is cause to kill some one. WTF
The Truckers can protest on the side of the road, in the park almost anywhere they would like. the TRUCK is a tool that is regulated by the state and as such it has NO FREE SPEECH RIGHTS.
But it’s not about COVID, vaccination, or mandates. As part of an interview with Pat King, leader of the “Freedom Convoy”, he tells us exactly why they’re “protesting”:
“Now, what it is, is the part of the depopulation. And a lot of people don’t understand what that means.”
(Tell us, Pat. Tell us what it means)
“And what there is, see, is there’s an endgame. It’s called depopulation of the caucasian race. Or the Anglo-Saxon.”
“And, that’s what the goal is, is to depopulate the Anglo-Saxon race, because they are the ones with the strongest bloodlines.”
The Democrats face an uphill battle to get their message out. Also historically the party in power loses seats in the midterms. But the Republicans are facing their own serious voter issues with only the shrinking base fully committed to the current message out of the Republican party. For example tRump is very popular with the base but not popular with the average Republican and swing voter. The Jan 6th denials are very popular with the base, but despised by the main stream Republicans and swing voters. If the Republicans run on the emotion of blocking every thing the Democrats try to do to help the public while pushing tRump with his big lie and trying to sell the fantasy that Jan 6th was legitimate political discourse the Democrats will keep control of congress and may even gain seats.
What would you have him do, start world war three? Nuke Moscow and end civilization as we know it. Putin wants to lie and and invade with little cost to himself. By Biden keeping it in the news, marshaling the NATO countries, by getting other countries to agree to crippling sanctions he is doing as much as he can to deter Putin. Plus the US has increased our arms sales to Ukraine and encouraged other countries to do so. Anything else is just counter effective and would prove Putin’s point that he needs to take other countries to keep his safe.
And now some for fun
There was a cartoon about cannibals in this space. While I thought the punchline was funny it was pointed out to me that the way the individuals in the cartoon were drawn, it was very stereotypical and is a trope used by racist bigots. I have decided because of that to remove the cartoon and explain that my intent was not to cause harm. The punchline would have worked without the characters being drawn that way and it is a shame the cartoonist went in that direction. I apologize for missing the offending part of the cartoon and I thank the person who pointed it out to me. Thanks.
