Did I wake up in East Berlin?

September 14th, 2011

I’m sorry Comrade Obama, tadalafil and but I’m not willing to snitch on my friends and neighbors for criticizing your regime.

    Can you imagine if Walker did something like this. The NAZI compaisons by the left would never end.

    So a fact-check type site targeting false accusations, lies, or misrepresentations of a candidate’s positions specifically for a specific political candidate is snitching? What?

    And Dan, Walker could never pull something like this off because his supporters don’t want to believe in the facts. They want to believe in the lies.

    Elliot, why not? Seems too much like blogging?

    Dan, Walker’s far too busy directing his minions like Cindy Archer to steer no-bid contracts to his political benefactors to worry about snitching.

    “So a fact-check type site targeting false accusations, lies, or misrepresentations of a candidate’s positions specifically for a specific political candidate is snitching? What?”

    It depends on which side of the aisle the candidate is on. We all know how different the reaction would be if a conservative did this. That’s a fact.

    “Walker could never pull something like this off because his supporters don’t want to believe in the facts. They want to believe in the lies.”

    When someone makes a statement like this it’s impossible to present them with facts and expect them to interpret them with any reason.

    Please, Terry. Enlighten me as to what the reaction would be if a conservative did this.

    Oh, right, conservatives don’t do this because the right thrives on misleading statements and fear, not valid information, as I said above.

    Even if a right wing candidate did put up a site like this, I’m fairly certain the reaction would be “refute the arguments they make to refute targeted links” via another site. There’s nothing at all offensive about the site.

    There’s a reason the anti-intellectualism movement is attributed to the right wing. And it’s not because they’re the party of “trying to spread facts.”
