So, anyone still pushing the false flag/dems and soros did it narrative about the bombing? Redstate and put that down the memory hole and is now "asking" whether the Dems and the lib media drove the bomber to it #partyofpersonalresponsibility.

I'm genuinely curious about what is driving the radical 'conservatism' movement that makes them defending up=down, black=white almost to 'earth is flat' like positions. What makes them want to live inside this low/free fact bubble?

It’s very clever what the Trump camp has done. They’ve screamed “fake news” so often that there’s now enough people who are sceptical of any negative coverage that they automatically assume it’s a fabrication. It then becomes a feedback loop and becomes the new narrative with the original story almost forgotten.

Therefore “school shooting prompts gun control debate” becomes “crisis actors try to discredit Trump’s continued winningness...” and then morphs into “peddlers of fake news need to stop the cycle of hate”, and then when journalists are attacked the line is almost “look what you made them do.”

Remember the story in the NYT on Trump's tax shenanigans a few weeks back?

Exactly.


It fell flat on its face. Crisis after crisis; we've always been at war with Eastasia'.

I don't get the outrage over Soros. Don't the Democrats have the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson pouring millions into GOP coffers? Are the people attacking Soros unaware of this, or do they just think that contributions towards their policies are exempt from criticism?

Yes. It's sports. Stick with your team, right or wrong.

New year. Same me. Proceed accordingly.
Soros inspires a deeper level of crazy than the average "Go Piggers!" political dispute. The wingnuts have latched onto him as a driver of the New World Order (UN overlords, Rothschild fantasies, Agenda 21, Global Government and the loss of sovereignty, etc). The even wingier wingnuts (yes, fringe to the fringe) put him as a direct member of the Illuminati. Really.

ZOG. Oh, you didn't know Soros was Jewwwwwish?

Yeah, though it's larger the modern Republican tactic of "let's stir outrage that the other side might be doing what we definitely are doing, so our asses are covered".

...he spent even more lavishly to rebuild civil society in the former Eastern Bloc, constructing schools, training teachers and paying scientists. The Central European University is the most visible fruit of that effort....

How evil of him, promoting education and science.

Well, if the Illuminati are who they are supposed to be, all of our major politicians and capitalists are members.

And Springsteen told Reagan to knock it off with using "Born in the USA".

The best news is the 7 governors, 4 AGs and several state legislatures newly won by the Democrats—and in a win for democracy, 3 winning ballot initiatives to institute non-partisan redistricting, 2 auto-registration laws, 2 same-day voting laws, and 1.4 million felons who've paid their debt being allowed to vote again. These are the kind of structural wins that over the last 10-20 years got Republicans to where they are now.

Definitely a strong showing, and more than a ripple. This was a huge swing in the House, huge stuff at the state level as JK outlined, and the losses were by small margins in what had been overwhelmingly Republican districts or states. There's new diversity, plus goddamn infrastructure (I hope this holds; this is where the Democrats have always been slack while Republicans have been funded and tight on things like Redmap).
