Sometimes I like to think I'm funny...and then someone like a Jeremy Newberger comes along with gems like that quote and reminds me to stay in the shallow end of the pool
you’ve defo got me beat, I just curate this stuff!
Not at all man. Punching back against the racist delusional right wing that has a total disconnect from society isn't speaking truth to power or being clever sadly all we can do is sometimes laugh because of how sad it is that so many people out right refuse to see it for what it is.
And like whats the point of being a smart ass on a post like that. Nobody who agreed with him already will change their mind and all the woke blue check marks will just pat themselves on the back for the zinger.
Hate to sound so bitter and cynical just to me like snarky tweets at politicians is part of the problem it just cheapens any discourse or discussion. Everyone needs to stop thinking they're Patton Oswalt, and Patton Oswalt needs to just stop.
So Into the Storm ended on a downer. Not that a story about the origins of Qanon was gonna be happy go lucky in the end, but what a nothing-burger. At least there were a couple laughs along the way. The whirlwind of the lives surrounding 8Chan/8Kun is sorta interesting on its own, but the Qanon stuff is just baffling when it comes right down to it. There's so many actors purposefully polluting the info trail it's impossible to know for sure, yet based on the documentary almost impossible to *NOT* know at least one of the trails of breadcrumbs.
Definitely an interesting, if maddening, look into the other side of the Q divide. The delusion runs deep, and so much of it seems to have been intentionally set up as nothing more than a joke that got carried away. Lord, what a world we live in.
I enjoyed it, definitely not as exciting as it would have been if Q was bannon or flynn.
Them both laughing during the final video call was pretty damning though. (Intentionally vague so as not to spoil the ending)
"Not as Q though." BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
What a cray-cray ride.
I think that it’s just like everything else in America nowadays, one giant grift. Q wasn’t about anything except making money and they got damn close to helping burn down our country, all over a shitty website, just consider that.
The whole Q thing is crazy. I hope there’s consequences for the pieces of excrement that are responsible for misleading so many. “Where we go one, we go all.” Yeah, they all goin’ crazy. You wanna come too?
Speaking of crazy... Brad the Dragon Lord Guitologist posted a wacky try-hard one today. Apparently it's the first time he's seen a voluntary demographic survey.
(Posted here because Marcella decided to troll/derail the last one.)
Any particular reason we care about this youtube wing nut more than the others?
"But by far the most interesting characteristic common to the insurrectionists’ backgrounds has to do with changes in their local demographics: Counties with the most significant declines in the non-Hispanic White population are the most likely to produce insurrectionists who now face charges.
The people alleged by authorities to have taken the law into their hands on Jan. 6 typically hail from places where non-White populations are growing fastest,” Pape wrote. That’s a wildly fascinating — and terrifying — conclusion to draw."
So you know how Wolverine's claws make a "SNIKT" sound? Now imagine Ted's sound.
I mean it's obviously a Ren & Stimpy-esque deflating fart noise, right?
So I keep seeing articles saying the US economy is about to take off in a way not seen in quite some time. @Drew or anyone else with knowledge in the field, safe to assume that's the case, or what is the "there's more to it than that"?
The "economy" is about to take off like it usually does. Already has to some extent. Productivity increases, but profits are ever more concentrated in the pockets of the few.
The S&P and Real Estate are going parabolic, but for most people, things are not going any better.
Add to that inflation (everything from commodities to food prices- all in the context of a falling dollar); it's looking pretty good for billionaires - but not great for everyone else.
