    I watched Laura Ingram, Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity last night.  They have changed from defending Trump, to attacking Biden and the left, just like they did with Obama.  Only the name has been changed. They are up to their old tricks.

    I'm going to try to post their propaganda everyday to expose who and what they really are.

      I have to wonder, peoplepower, is Carlson implying that white supremacy and conservatism are inseparable? Why would he believe that true conservatives would be offended by attacks on the concept of white supremacy?

      It would be quite a revelation on his part.

        Sharlee:  I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. But it seems in any case you would have to ask Tucker what he means.

        I haven't seen Hannity but I can tell you that labeling every protest and opposing view as white supremacy is disgusting and racist. It insults anyone who has white skin and doesn't agree with far left ideals.

        The left is purposely trying to dehumanize an entire segment of the population. If you don't think I'm scared of what the left is doing, you should accept that those who don't accept the narrative being spun right now feel as if the left is going to push this further and further until they do radicalize people. And I believe that is their intent.

        I just wish that instead of demonizing opposition everyone would start listening to each other. I talk to people across this country every day and the people I talk to who lean left sound so hateful and mean. They spit venom. It's scary. Someone has got to stop this and from the voices I am hearing from the left they don't want to stop it. They want to escalate it.

          What am I saying, what is it that Carlson said or meant?

          I thought all reasonable people on either side of the political spectrum was against white supremacy in principle and only the most extremist kooks believe otherwise.

          We are not talking about possession of white skin, but the attitude of white supremacy and they are not one in the same.

          Why does Tucker believe that Biden, mentioning this as undesirable, was an attack on conservatives?

          There can be no room for accommodating intolerance and bigotry which is dehuminazation in itself.

          That is all that I am asking, no slight of hand or tricky question.

          By the way, I have seen just as many "scary" and unpleasantly adamant Trumpers in this part of Florida, like a plague of locusts.

      Oh my gosh! Political pundits attacking politicians on the opposing side.

      I never! How dare they! The left has never used those tactics.

        peoplepower73posted 5 weeks agoin reply to this

        The left has used those tactics, but they also present the news. When Obama was president, Fox was dedicated to denigrating him and the left. 

        When Trump was president, they were dedicated to promoting Trump to the point of a Trump run state news and still denigrating the left. 

        Now that Biden is president, they are denigrating him and the left, just like they did with Obama. 

        It is my opinion, there will never be unity in this country as long as Fox News and the MAGA news is allowed to present their propaganda. There are now 74 million people who voted for Trump and a large majority of them still believe that Biden has become president by illegal means and must be overturned from being president as the drumbeat continues from those outlets.

          They can't see it.  It's so hilarious,  in some levels.  Not so much on others.

          Notice one response here.  'Yeh, the left did it.  But that was news.'

          No differences of opinion allowed in that cult. I'm just hoping they aren't preparing to reenact Kristallnacht. They are certainly using the rhetoric needed to get away with it.

              LTL:  What do you think the attack on the Capitol was?  They broke windows the same way as in Kristallnacht.  The ones that led the break in were trained paramilitary and highly coordinated with comm systems. 

              Trump gave their cause purpose which was to overthrow the government, so he could remain their leader, but they failed. Fox and MAGA news wants people to think that white supremacists are the left wing, but in fact they are Trump's radicalized right wing.

                In my view ---This analogy is hurtful and insulting to every Jewish man, woman, and child. IMO your opinion was ill-thought-out.

                On November 9 to November 10, 1938, in an incident known as “Kristallnacht”, Nazis in Germany torched synagogues, vandalized Jewish homes, schools, and businesses, and killed close to 100 Jews. In the aftermath of Kristallnacht, also called the “Night of Broken Glass,” some 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and sent to Nazi concentration camps. Merely for being a Jew!

                Perhaps it is time to realize the left is dangerous spouting these kinds of analogies.   

                Kristallnacht was a night in that one race of people persecuted people for their religion, their very culture.  "Judaism can be thought of as being simultaneously a religion, a nationality, and a culture."

                Last I looked the people that rioted at the Capitol were American's dissatisfied with their Government. Right or wrong that was the cause. Nothing at all to do with, religion, culture, and persecution of a people.

                What the hell kind of society have we become when we can bend " the night of broken glass" to suit a riot that clearly was about some of its citizens being dissatisfied with the Government.

                I think your ideology is dangerous, much like those that spurred the Nazis on the night of broken glass. 

                I would think the majority of Americans well realize it was a combination of far-right groups and Trump protesters that attacked the Capitol. The FBI identified many to belong to far-right groups.  I have no idea what any talk jocks are pushing, maybe they are the biggest part of the problem.

                  Sharlee:  I saw people carrying flags that had NAZI swastikas on them.  They were others with shirts and flags with Auschwitz on them and all the while they were shouting, "USA, USA." 

                  Now either these people are so radicalized that they don't know what the hell they are doing or they do know what they are doing. How can they be shouting United States of America when they are going against the basic tenants of being an United Country? 

                  I believe to them, if you are not white, then you are the "others."  In Charlottesville, they were shouting "We will not  be replaced." When interviewed, they said they did not want to be replaced by Jews and blacks who were taking their jobs.

                  This all goes back to Trump, Fox, and MAGA News emboldening these people to finally culminate in attacking the Capitol and shouting USA, carrying confederate flags and, even using the flag that we pledge allegiance to break in and bludgeon those who tried to stop them.

                  If they would have succeeded in stopping this constitutional process of certifying a president elect, what do you think their next step would be?

                    Yes, they broke windows, did they cart off 30 million citizens to concentration camps? A bit of a hyperbolic stretch.

                    Comparing something as  Kristallnacht to a gang of extremists trying to protest with violence something their Government was doing is not by any means close to what was done to the Jewish people.

                    You don't need to point out to me what happened at our Capitol or Charlotteville.  I clearly see militia groups were present at both riots. And as I pointed out I saw what the FBI claimed that the groups were organized extremists trying to stop our Government from proceeding with their constitutional duty at the Capitol riot.   This attack was planned, and to disrupt our government from confirming the election results.
                    It was not in response to the hate of a religion or culture.

                    "If they would have succeeded in stopping this constitutional process of certifying a president elect, what do you think their next step would be?"
                    .
                    I would surmise they would strike again and again. That's what thugs do when they are left to lawlessness. Just like the riots in our Dem cities that are still going on today after months and months of being let to run loose.  Right or left violence the fact is at this point in our history it seems to be on the rise. You want to see broken glass have a look at what rioters are doing to the Ice Building in Portland.

                  Sharlee, unless you think the encloypedia is a source of liberal bias, Nazism is clearly a right wing philosophy, not a leftwing one. Why are so many of the Trump faithful sporting the swastica if Nazism was actually left wing Socialism in practice?

                    Hold up !!! Please don't deflect off my comment.  This was the comment I was replying to. No mention of far-right ideology was present in his comment. In fact, if you read my comment I added at the end---

                    "I would think the majority of Americans well realize it was a combination of far-right groups and Trump protesters that attacked the Capitol. The FBI identified many to belong to far-right groups.  I have no idea what any talk jocks are pushing, maybe they are the biggest part of the problem."

                    And before you start pointing fingers maybe have a look at what far-left groups were doing all last week in Portland outside the ICE building. Ya want broken windows to have a look-see. Thugs are thugs on the right or left. Both have sick ideologies and promote violence.

                    I don't condom any form of violent riots. I also don't applaud BS statements that are ill-thought-out. The Night Of Broken Glass in no respect should be compared to a handful of thugs charging the capitol. Very poor analogy.

                    On November 9 to November 10, 1938, in an incident known as “Kristallnacht”, Nazis in Germany torched synagogues, vandalized Jewish homes, schools, and businesses, and killed close to 100 Jews. In the aftermath of Kristallnacht, also called the “Night of Broken Glass,” some 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and sent to Nazi concentration camps. Merely for being a Jew!

                    Really hyperbolic comparison at best.
                    If I were a Jew and had to pick what riot I had to live through --- That would be the Capitol riot. Broken windows and all. No genocide was involved as I recall.

                  The same society that is convinced Trump is the equivalent of Hitler, long before he is ever elected.

                  https://www.newsweek.com/just-how-simil … ler-501252

                  A comparison that started in 2015.  But if you go back, you will see some compared Romney when he ran against Obama to Hitler, many complained that Bush was as bad as Hitler while he was in office... the more extreme elements of the "Left" spectrum seem to do this to all serious opposition.

                  With Trump however, they went hyperbolic.

                  I would say we have entered a new phase of this however, as we saw with all social media platforms banning Trump as well as many who support him, and now the outcry seen here that the "propaganda" of Fox news must be shut down, such "brainwashing" needs to be banned.

                  I would expect in the coming couple years, such matters will be dealt with, and those problems will be remedied.

                    Yes, I realize as you pointed out "Hitler" is always pulled from the
                    "Democratic Sure Political Gems Playbook". What shocked me is it has truly become such a dog whistle that promotes such a strain of hate. To even insinuate that former president Trump was in any fashion trying to promote one American turning on another physically sickens me.   

                    IMO the Democrats and the left media have become a burden, a threat to the Country.  I finally must admit, we are in trouble, my friend.

    Are people really that ignorant? Hilter and his cronies killed over 11 million people. Hilter started WWII. Trump didn't start a war and look at what happened in the Middle East while he was in office. Comparing Trump to Hilter is decreasing the crimes of the Nazis. Making a statement that compares Trump or even Obama to the psychopath is ignorant and parroting the news media.

      The concept of white supremacy being a serious threat is laughable, partly because half the people considered white have bought into the "white guilt" that has been part of our social programming (IE - TV shows, News) for decades now.  And partly because whites are the minority throughout much of the country (IE - CA, TX) and will be the minority in America from here on out.

      Such articles shift focus from the REAL struggle in America today, it shifts people's attention from reality to hating one another based on race and identity politics.

      And people who bang on the drum of these issues are the BIGGEST reason why there is racism and identity politics.

      The real reason there is rioting in the streets, by LEFT and RIGHT extremes, the reason why fedearl buildings are under attack in Oregon and why people are storming the Capitol Building is because the system is FAILING them.

      it's because during this "pandemic" the wealthy have gotten obscenely wealthy, while working men and women are told to stay home, and lose their jobs, lose their businesses, etc.

      The banks have nearly tripled their Demand Deposits on hand in the past year, trillions have been given out mega corporations (who in turn fire their employees), hedge funds, investment firms, etc.

      These are the REAL problems... brought on by a failing economic system out of control state governments shutting down businesses and a corrupt federal government that does what is best for the corporations and banks not the people.

        Ken:  You will probably think this is tripe as well, but it is worth the read.

          No, it wasn't, it was tripe for the easily manipulated. 

          That was obvious as soon as it detailed the sources of information.

          I don't expect you to understand that though.

      This reminds me of when Trump was running for the nomination.
      Many conservatives here didn't like him, called him a liar, a bully, not qualified, etc. But, once it became clear he was the frontrunner, they claimed he was no worse than any other politician. Some even claimed they liked him all along.

      This is very similar. Just three weeks ago, Trump incited a riot. We all saw it with our own eyes and ears and processed it with our brains. That incitement resulted in his fans desecrating the Capitol, killing an officer, and injuring many othets. That initial revulsion toward what Trump did (what they saw with their own eyes, ears, and brains) was justified. it was reality. But, you know, three weeks have gone by and subsequent re-interpretations offered by Trump loyalists have easily swayed some people to change their minds, to deny what they really saw.

      The psychology of Trumpism is fascinating and will be studied for years to come.

      Just keep denying what your eyes, ears, and brain tell you and you can remain a loyal Trumper to the bitter end....

        "This is very similar. Just three weeks ago, Trump incited a riot. We all saw it with our own eyes and ears and processed it with our brains."

        You're right - we all saw and heard it.  It was during that "processing" part where the meaning of the words was changed to mean something other than what was said by some of the brains "processing" what had been heard.  Like "talk to your representative" means "shoot and hang them", or "march on the Capital" means "break in and rampage about".  Even "fight", used for centuries to mean a political battle in the legislature, suddenly means personal violence against legislators.

        TDS has a way of doing that - when the desired conclusion takes priority over understanding and truth that is natural.

          You're a master. I've always said so. Has Trump hired you yet? You can lead the next disinformation campaign. The midterms are only two years away. Maybe you can help get even more conspiracy theorists elected to Congress.  Sandy Hook was a hoax and Trump is single-handedly fighting a secret cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles. Time is short! :-D

          Wilderness:  It's not the words by themselves that have meaning.  It is the context they are used in. Do you think every time Trump said the word fight, that he meant a political fight when there were armed paramilitary troops in his audience ready to breach the Capitol and even kill people if necessary, which they did.? 

          He may have used the words, but he incited and created a monster.  But I must admit, he did have control over them. When he told them to leave and he loved them, they obeyed their master.

                  Perhaps it wiser to listen to his speech in full, it offers the listener his tone, his demeanor, and not just selected highlighted words. IMO this can offer a more balanced way to form an opinion. However, it is well apparent we have a segment of our population that are more or less trained to select words and forgo all other contexts.

                    Sharlee:  Here it is.  I would love to hear your impression of the entire speech. It's an hour and ten minutes long. Now you have the transcript and the live version.  I would think that would be enough context to form a balanced opinion. I'm not doing this just for you.  I'm doing it for everybody in this forum so they can all have a balanced opinion of what went down that day.

                  Thanks for the link Mike, and your highlighting efforts, but I don't need it. I listened to the speech the day it was given and was disgusted by it.

                  I don't need to nit-pik or argue particular words or phrases to defend or condemn. My opinion is firm. I think that speech, along with his previous 3 weeks of urging, clearly revved-up that crowd of supporters to do what some of them did.

                  But, I also think the Jan.6 speech was not the match that lit the fuse. I believe the fuse was already lit. Some folks came to that rally prepared—with weapons and plans. They didn't need the incitement of the Jan. 6 speech. It was just the final permission.

                  My bottom-line is that I do think Pres. Trump is responsible for spurring on the group that assaulted the Capital, but it is the responsibility of 3 weeks of action, not that one speech.

                    GA:  I agree with you totally. That speech was the culmination of Trump's drumbeats including the fake news, the enemy of the people, the weak republicans, the radicalized democrats, and the election being stolen that lit the fire. He had been repeating this for months, and in some cases for years as he played it to a very select audience.
