It should come as no surprise that those who spread lies, KKKonspiracy theories, alternative “facts,” gaslighting, Trumpiness, truthiness, totally whacked out B.S. and all other manner of Orwellian disinformation and misinformation are going to take exception to those who use actual facts, science, history and reality to uncover the massive KKKon game the TrumpubliQans have perpetrated on their gullible suckers.
No wonder Trump can freely admit that he “loves the uneducated.”
And of course the TrumpubliQans, with their own history of perversion, pedophilia and their own REAL child sex traffickers (and the traffickers’ friends and enablers) like Matt Gaetz, Roy Moore, Gym Jordan (echoes of Dennis Hastert), Lauren Boebert (whose husband Jayson was convicted and served time for “lewd exposure” to underage girls), right-wing pedophile priests and, of course, Jeffrey Epstein’s best pal Donald “pu$$y-grabber” Trump, are determined to employ their favorite tactic of distraction and redirection:
The “BIG LIE” strategy straight outta the Joseph Goebbels / Roy Cohn / Roger Ailes / Karl Rove / Vladimir Putin / Steve Bannon / Stephen Miller / Donald Trump playbook:
“Project your own weakest vulnerability back at those you oppose.”
And they don’t want America protected from Russian disinformation, because they love it!
The Republicans, their sycophants/apologists and their servants/slaves especially the ones who post here are the kings of Orwellian fantasyland.
So say a bunch of quislings!!!
In other words, trump’s propaganda network, fox.
Defund DHS, and while you are at it Trump’s Space Force. Gawd, how cartoony can we get?
The board could easily be populated by real-life embodiments of our national lunacy: Greene, Gaetz, Hawley, Cruz, Cawthorn, Gohmert, Boebert, Trump Jr., Trump Sr., and too many more.
Wow. Clay drew the RW commenters.
Censor not, lest ye be censored. . . .
I see the punk kid rikki is raving mindlessly, as usual, and dishonestly, as usual…..The objections to the disinformation board (and, it DOES have a stupid name) are way over-blown, for the simple reason that it has no power. It’s like the imbeciles and/or lunatics blaming Dr. Fauci for what individual governors or mayors did in terms of dealing with Covid.
When the GOP is grabbed by the tail, knowing they’re the culprits, they cry fowl….deflect, investigate, lie more, add more theories….. there’s no end to their madness…..
Hey, Beetle Bailey-Level Intelligence, Friedbird waterpistol, patrick murphy, loony squiggles, rikitikirussianbot, klemubermoron, ammosexuallydysfunctional, opspecial ed, JAwholikesbluegrass, jane b thinkin’ VERY ignorantlee, 60 rottenbuzzardbrains adhered to a scorching sidewalk, sammy ugly avatar, leonarddonk, I found your brother, Montana Bill. He’s crawled over ArcaMax to spread with greasy crap. Man, he must love him some delayed comix. When are the rest of you gonna slink on over there?:
All adherents of the former guy, and his ilk, may check their Orwellian outrage at the door, thank you!
Part of an interview (07-Jan-2022) with Timothy Snyder, author of the bestseller ‘On Tyranny’:
“I’ve been thinking a lot about truth these last few days, and you can’t lie your way to freedom. If you act on the basis of the Big Lie you’re not really free. You’re the creature of someone else, and I think we have a problem in this country, which is that we’ve defined ‘freedom’ as the thing that you feel like doing, and saying the thing you feel like saying, whether it’s true or false.”
And just for funzies, here’s something from Stephen Colbert, 15-Jul-2016:
“Just to remind you, 11 years ago, I invented a word: truthiness [TM Viacom @2005]. You see, truthiness is believing something that feels true, even if it isn’t supported by fact. [Trump and I] have a lot in common, both being over-the-top TV personalities who decided to run for president, though Trump has surpassed me now. ‘Truthiness’ has to feel true, but Trumpiness doesn’t even have to do that. In fact, many Trump supporters don’t believe his wildest promises, and they don’t care. If he doesn’t ever have to mean what he says, that means he can say anything, so here’s the deal: Truthiness was from the gut, but Trumpiness clearly comes from much further down the gastrointestinal tract.”
I remember reading that Orwell towards the end of his life made a comment to the effect of:
My books were meant to be warnings, not how to books.
Clay, grats on 5 years without missing a ’toon. You mentioned on youtube that there was a GoComics interview on that.
Under Biden, there is an attempt to counter disinformation by getting the facts out. Under Trump, the entire administration was dedicated to getting out disinformation.
The thing that gives me pause about this proposed branch is that (1) it was proposed under DFT’s admin, and (2) it’s part of DHS, which simply shouldn’t exist, period.
Like the lie that there was Russia Collusion…
