    Exemplification of the PHONIESS of the left.

    The thing I can't stand probably the most is phoniness, even more than a narcissistic jackass like Trump, especially when MSM uses that phoniness to manipulate societal opinion and create political division. Case in point...

    Yeah, that was rich!!! And what these birdbrained self-righteous newsdudes don't realize is that deaf people who read lips HATE those masks on alleged reporters.

    And just to expound on this. There's now the story of the black man that was literally suffocated by a Minneapolis police officer that the MSM is in full-on sensational mode, which is actually causing riots in the city as we speak. Now I think most would agree, this was wrong, and tragic and hopefully justice will be served. But there was another tragedy of a black man in a nursing home brutally beating a white elderly man that got very little to no attention, certainly not anywhere near as much as the former story. Persoanlly, I don't believe either story should have been sensationalized, particularly for political reasons, and the reason I believe this is WILLFUL deceit on the part of the MSM is not only the lopsided attention the two stories are being given, but the fact we don't know if the police officer's motives were racially motivated (this is assumed), whereas the man beating up the elderly man was IN FACT racially motivated. I don't understand why the MSM is intentionally doing this -- creating these racial and political divides (even using false narratives to do it) -- but it's disgusting to me and dangerous.

    Do you really not understand why an unjustified killing by a police officer is treated 10x as seriously as an unjustified killing by a private citizen?

    Ahmaud Arbery wasn't killed by a police officer, and again, the racial motivation behind that is assumed, whereas the black guy brutally beating up the white elderly man WAS racially motivated. The fact that these instances can be construed as racially motivated (as white racism) is the reason they're being sensationalized. It's very clear pattern.

    But the main point is the MSM going out of their way to create lopsided societal divides, whether it's racial or political, even if it means creating false narratives -- like they did in the OP video -- to do it. It's bizarre to me that they're doing this, and it's clearly having negative repercussions.

    I do. And it grieves police officers who are doing it right, because they take the heat.

    Arbery isn't the man who was suffocated. You're so anxious to demonize "the left" you can't even keep your racial killings straight.


    But the main point is the MSM going out of their way to create lopsided societal divides, whether it's racial or political, even if it means creating false narratives -- like they did in the OP video -- to do it.

    I watched the first minute of that video and couldn't figure out what point you were trying to make.

    Let me ask you this -- do you understand the difference between something being true in technicality and something being true in spirit? And do you understand why we might prefer to present something as true in spirit at the cost of technicality sometimes even when our goal is to be as truthful as possible?

    I thought this was about the masks.

    Masks are a new form of virtue signaling.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God
