I admit, I'm just devastated after reading your post.
I mean, you are on to us "lefties". You have figured out that we are all an extension of George Soros!!!!!
And here we have been trying to keep our part in that Soros corn-spiracy secret.
Next thing you know, you are going to call all of us out for our many many connections to Al Gore.
Please go easy on us, we lefties, liberals, communists, socialists and the like, are just lost in the Forest of the Left, and we can't find the Righteous Forest of the Right, where only truth prevails.
I mean, we should know all of that by now right? Right wingers are only corn-cerned about speaking the truth.
Just look at Donald Trump!!!! A paragon of truth telling, I must admit. You can hang on every single utterance of spoken word, or tweet.
You have really caused me to think, think, think real hard about where I have departed from the good and righteous road to truth, that leads to subservience to right wing, or at the very least, solid conservative orthodoxy.
An orthodoxy so replete with upstanding citizens and leaders, it just blows my mind (now that you have caused me to see the light) that I haven't recognized that alternative truth until now.
From Norquist to Gingrich, from Ollie North to Negroponte, from Nixon to Reagan, from David Duke to Bannon, from George Fucking W. Bush to the elder Bush, from Donald Rumsfeld to Dick Fucking Cheney, from Henry Kissinger to Colin Powell, from David Petraeus to John Bolton, from O'Reilley to Limbaugh, from Dr. Laura to Ann Coulter, the truth is on their side.
There has been just so much truth told on alt-right sites, I have to get up to speed quick, now that I'm in the age of alt-Truth. Now that I've seen the light, that night is day, black is white, he isn't holding up 2 fingers in the air, but actually 3, I'm all for getting me some truth.
Where should I go for more, now that I'm hungry for alt-Truth. What's Karl Rove up to these days? Perhaps I can check in with him. And how about those Koch Brothers, I can certainly benefit from their alt-Truth climate websites where I can deprogram myself from having been influenced by Al Gore.
Okay, I'm practicing. So when I go to forums not of the alt-Truth variety, I just repeat Soros, and Al Gore right?
Oh yes, I almost forgot, I have to say communists, socialists, lefties, and stuff like that to win arguments. Damn I've got a lot of work to do.
Oh yes, the new tag line for everything is Fake News. I must remember that one, because that pretty much is all one has to say.
I mean, objective truth and investigation are just so damn stale. Alt-Truth rules the day, and the alt-Truth hero is Trump.
Until your post, I hadn't really seen the light, had not revered this brilliant man, this Billionaire, in the correct light!
In the past, I just corn-sidered his lawsuits against workers trying to form unions, and his outsourcing jobs to India and China, examples of what his actual agenda might be. One that didn't really corn-cern a particular principled position relative to helping "the people" get higher pay and better jobs.
But now, with alt-Truth perspective, I can understand why so many workers have put their eggs in his basket.
It makes perfect sense.
Just like it makes perfect sense, that draining the swamp of corruption in D.C., meant appointing the wealthiest cabinet in US history, made up of people who have spent their entire professional careers making themselves rich while ripping off everyone else.
I mean what the hell was I thinking? I should have been engaging in alt-thought.
Note to the astute reader…
I'm aware of the sad nature of alt-truth of oligarchy, so please refrain from pursuing any hypocrisy based argument. Please consider, the post I'm replying to.
