when the lie becomes an end unto itself
contempt for truth is the hallmark of contempt for the people
one of the ugliest parts of the propaganda complex is when they stop caring about facts or even plausibility altogether. that’s where the real contempt for the subjugated emerges.
they just lie. they make up fictions from whole cloth and brazenly broadcast them in hopes you are too stupid or lazy to check. they seek to prey upon tribal tendencies towards confirmation bias.
this is not a sign that one’s side is winning. (much less that it’s on the side of science or of data)
this is the “record harvests among agricultural plenty despite reactionary saboteurs’ failed attempts to thwart the dear leader’s plan!” headline served up to a populace that just got finished eating their shoes and is starting in on their socks.
it’s not even clear to me who they are trying to fool anymore. (i wonder if it’s even clear to them…)
it takes 10 seconds of research to demolish this. (of course, that’s probably well past the attention span of his fanbase)
here, let’s look:
huh, florida is not “one of the lowest case rates per 100k” it is THE lowest case rate in the US over the last 7 days. literally the best of all 50 states.
any more questions mr kimmel?
this is just dirty political water being carried for the northeast who is rapidly heading into a winter that will likely wind up as bad as last year. the northern states are already FAR worse. MA, CT, RI, NY look to be playing rapid catchup.
these smears on desantis are wild. the need to attack the control group for succeeding and revealing the blue bastion’s mitigations and prevarications for the pseudoscience and fraud that they are is an unforgivable sin to this mind and social set.
that their arguments have been reduced to this sort of hallucinatory hand waving is, in and of itself, extremely telling with regard to both the strength of their case and the weakness of their morals.
i hope they keep it up. it can only discredit them further in the eyes of the center. there is always room for reasonable people to disagree on complex issues, but nobody trusts a liar.
the more soviet our media goes, the less credibility it will carry.
more potent still is the obvious and inescapable fact that anyone who would lie to you like this cannot possibly have any respect for you.
this is an act of contempt.
i suggest you return the favor.
