It speaks a lot to what your FB post was about yesterday like Rick Wilson said on Ana Marie Cox's Podcast Fox News etc. has poisoned the well so much it's hard to know what conservatives actually believe.

Sean Hannity is said to be on the verge of being fired from Fox News. Hard to believe in a year all of the GOP propaganda machine's chickens have come home to roost.

It's one thing to constantly lie when you're the opposition and you have nothing to lose. When you keep lying, even when you're the governing party, eventually there will be consequences to it (one hopes)

Hey Dynasty, you know that thing you do where you cherrypick awful things that happen that nobody disagrees is awful and then try to pin it on some larger group that doesn't condone or encourage said awful things/behavior?

This one's for you, buddy. Wonder how long Fox News and Brietbart will take to call this Radical Terror:

Best film since "Man Getting Hit In the Groin WIth A Football".

Seriously though, I appreciate that he didn't even miss a beat in his rant, just wrapped around the pole like he did it on purpose

I think it's fair to say that if things keep going the direction that they are, America is going to end up losing a lot of it's might and all of it's influence.

Rant and rave at someone else for your problems, run yourself into a pole while doing so and then continue ranting at everyone but yourself immediately afterwards even more vitriolically without a hint or irony or self-awareness. You couldn't write a better metaphor for a Trump or even a GOP voter in the current political climate.

Wow. I don't even have words for how awful that almost ended up being. And the fact that she has such humility in the situation proves how much of a hero she really is

*scratches head*

So, they don't mention that Kushner was going to set up this back channel at the Russian embassy, using Russian encryption in order to circumvent US intelligence, that he didn't disclose the meetings he had about setting up this back channel, or the fact that Russia had just successfully manipulated our election, but still come to the conclusion that it's no big deal.

Wait, what?

Yes, we all need to do our part to condemn, denounce and tackle the problem of violent extremists in our midst no matter what form it takes.

You'll be waiting. Apparently the alt right have been trying to distance themselves from the attacker all weekend.
