"You Are Still Crying Wolf" by Scott Alexander : Required Reading

I dunn'o, seems a tad "Doth protest too much". Not that Trump is any of what he has being accused of, it’s just that going to such lengths to try and prove otherwise is rather pointless, especially at this point. As the saying goes -Those who know, no explanation is necessary. Those who don't, no explanation will suffice.

With that said, I did find the point regarding the percentages breakdown (KKK members, etc.) at the beginning rather interesting.

Also, I rather enjoy the manic fear and hyperbolic panic by those who feel that Trump is going to “throw them in camps”, etc. I don’t want to elevate any of that cra, cra…too freakin’ entertaining and well deserved on them. Let’s keep it going for a while longer.

I had done my own research into the media manipulation of their pre-made anti-Trump narrative a few months ago and mentioned it every where. Lots of people stated they had observed the same.


What I would like to see is a voluntary ban on ALL of the big media sources. Hit them square in the ass pockets HARD. I mean, dump them like a soiled diaper, but quick, and final. Turn your back and step off, never touch them again. Ever.

But in order to do that, to step off, you'll need to convince yourself that the MSM is more harmful than good, IOW, they put out more lies than truth.

Do you demand truth?
Do you repel lies?

Then "nike" them - just do it.
Repel the lies.
And tell everyone you know to do it too.

This requires almost no effort at all.

The media have put their reputation in a rocket, and the rocket is going so far it will never be seen again. IF it doesn't blow up on the launching pad, first.

Damaging untruthful comments about public figures should be considered illegal. Those making such comments should be subject to fines and imprisonment.
Simply put, STFUOPU -- STFU Or Pay Up.

OK, this does bring up something that Trump and I violently disagree on. Taco salad is disgusting.

And this was worth 29% of hispanics voting for him. Next election, it's a massive Hillary piñata.
