MSM screams that voter-ID and election-integrity laws are "THE END OF DEMOCRACY"!!! To wit, an uber-wealthy, professional-sports league was pressured and guilted into moving an Allstar game from a majority-minority city, Atlanta, GA, to relatively pasty-white, Denver, CO because of the passage of an election-integrity law...
 
How about we stop mouth-breathing for a moment and use our brains and think?
 
What sounds more like "THE END OF DEMOCRACY"...???
 
A law that requires a person voting to show a photo-ID like you have to do when buying alcohol or, IRONICALLY, applying for a government program.
 
A law that requires that you have to make a formal request for an absentee ballot to vote by mail.
 
A law that requires equal access to be given to both major political parties to oversee ballot recording.
 
OR
 
Allowing people who show up to vote to not have to prove who they are in any way, shape, form or fashion.
 
Allowing ballot harvesting.
 
Allowing noncitizens to vote.
 
Allowing illegal immigrants to vote.
 
Allowing early voting, as much as a month early, before all information about the candidates is in.
 
Mailing out ballots to everyone to vote by mail.
 
Allowing for dual citizenship, which gives dual citizens, who have obvious split allegiance, the right to vote.
 
Mandating changes to election laws when it is explicitly stated in the State's Constitution that such changes must be made by the legislature.

 
(And, I am not including ALL the shenanigans that DID go on during the 2020 election.)
 
...
 
I would proffer that if you are a clear-thinking person, the choice about what sounds more like "THE END OF DEMOCRACY" is OBVIOUS!!! Stop believing these globalist, establishmentarian shills in the MSM, MSE and academia!

I have finally come to realize that folks on the conservative side of the ball need to be much more judicious when it comes to accusing leftists and liberals of hypocrisy. It all too often does not serve to advance the discussion -- and even backfires -- because in most instances it does not mean the same thing for them and the indoctrinated masses as it does for conservatives.
 
Imperfect though we are and we believe every human being to be, a conservative has objective standards and principles that he or she tries to live by as best as one can. Of course, 100% success, or even much less than that, is impossible but that does not make conservatives hypocrites. It just makes them imperfect. After all, contrary to conventional definitions and popular opinion, hypocrisy is not one's not living according to one's ideals (for that is the imperfection of humanity) BUT RATHER one's having one set of rules for oneself and a different, more oppressive set of rules for OTHERS, that is to say, one's doing things one tells OTHERS not to do (THAT is hypocrisy).
 
For liberals and leftists objective standards and principles do NOT take precedence. What they have is a cause, driven by global-statist, socialist/communist ideology and, of course, self-interest. Therefore, albeit in a tendentious and self-deluded manner, they experience and, thus, define hypocrisy differently.
 
...
 
What hypocrisy is for the conservative is when someone violates the standards and principles that they espouse for everyone, like someone who mandates protective mask-wearing for all but violates it themselves. Hypocrisy is when one has rules for others but not for oneself. That is what a hypocrite is to the conservative.
 
But, this is not what hypocrisy is for leftists and liberals. Think it through...
 
What hypocrisy is for the leftist and the liberal is when someone acknowledges the merits of the other side or the flaws in the leftist cause. This notably occurs when someone fails to attack and ostracize whoever opposes the statist cause and the parties who have a stake in the cause. That is what a hypocrite is for the left.
 
As such, calling lefties hypocrites is not the optimal way to make intellectual inroads in the general public, for whom the charge largely does not register because they have been indoctrinated in the leftist cause by American Marxists in the schools, MSM and MSE and have thus become unfortunately inured to and unfazed by such charges against the left.
 
But, anyway, it is not so much that they are hypocritical as they are disingenuous... and a bunch of scolds! In their rhetoric, disinformation is their currency; intellectual dishonesty and tendentiousness are their modus operandi, and ignorance, feigned and willful, is their escape hatch. All of that, and not so much hypocrisy, is what conservatives need to unwaveringly and incessantly be pointing out!

I know the demoncrat-driven MSM was so into counting Trump-administration lies.  How many lies of such SUBSTANTIAL impact by the MSM, demoncrat apparatus, intelligence community and Biden family have just been affirmed in one fell swoop by last week's NYT article about Hunter's laptop: Shop owner who gave Biden laptop to FBI says NYT story 'a day late and a dollar short'???  And, I know some shills, right around here even, will not even bat an eye... and probably even have at the ready some vapid, smart-ass, somewhat plausible-ish, but ultimately silly excuse in defense of media coverage.  My God...

Actually, I would be LMFAO... if the behavior of our MSM was not so scary and shills not so brainwashed and/or clueless :
Part I - Christiane Amanpour Mocks Liz Harrington;
Part II - Liz Harrington Rips CNN's Christiane Amanpour a new A** H***!
 
...
 
In other scum-of-the-earth MSM news, why are we only now hearing about this and, of course, not so loudly at that: Recently unsealed video shows California man screaming 'I can't breathe' before dying in police custody after 2020 traffic stop???  I know,... some sly, seemingly legit, technical, legal reason.  On the other hand, my black friends, they want to take the wind out of those BLM sails,... for now at least...  The demoncrats do not need all that racial strife here in 2022 when it is they who are in power and need to win this year to stay in power.

Would someone, PLEASE, ask Supreme Court Justice-to-be, Ketanji Brown Jackson, "What are you? Are you a woman?" And, if she answers, "Yes, I am a woman," then follow up with, "Well, what is that? How is it that you are a woman?"

Spoken like a true leftist professor who is totally unconcerned about being censored by Twitter or reprimanded by his employer, Yale, no less fired. No self-awareness and so no sense of irony, which would not be so concerning, save for the fact that dude is an Ivy League professor. Actually, it is par for the course and a course in the postmodern Academy.

What NEWS outlet talks like this, ...
 

 
... in such an overtly one-sided manner, and continues to be taken seriously by some substantial segment of the population of a noncommunist country?
 
Well, FYI, it sounds like Pravda: it is our job to CONTROL what the people think... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quU_Tbv96Wk&t=33s!
 
I mean REALLY... in the face of this regarding the SUPPRESSION of the New York Post when they broke the story, a REAL "BOMBSHELL", about Hunter's laptop and the Biden family's super shady, international-business dealings ...
 

 
... they say this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yxxg4KG9qxI! Hello,... self-awareness, ANYone!?!?
 
In the meantime, while statues and murals of George Floyd go up, does anybody even know who a real hero like Bishop Evans is? Not if you watch the MSM...
 

 
Yet, we are told, "Black lives matter," as black lives -- mostly YOUNG black lives -- continue to be lost in droves -- NOT at the hands of police officers but in heartless, gangbanger drive-bys -- in our major cities.
 
We are left only to speculate that is because THAT is NOT due to so-called "systemic racism" and that THIS kind of thing truly advances the cause:
 

 
Black faces are being systematically removed from the public consciousness... Something foul is afoot!
 
Oh, but do not think for yourself about any of that. What is trending on Google and Bing today? Some supposed "investigative journalist" at The NYT, the MSM's beacon, wants to, at the very least, create a distraction, at worst, implant this into your consciousness to fester...
 
"Tucker Carlson is a RACIST": https://twitter.com/nytimes/status/1520424003713785856.
 
How about in reply this stupid, circular logic from this empty-head tweeter, which mimics the circular reportage of his MSM and DNC overlords: "It is the most popular because it is the most racist. Because many people are racist."???
 
Meanwhile, I know there are people reading this thinking (and I quote, incorrect grammar and all, from a message recently received), "Your so mistaken about us....... " Mind you, said dude once sent me a clip of the unfunny propagandist John Oliver to make his point as if it were, in the least bit, cogent and persuasive.

The demoncrat bullshit comes so fast anymore,it is hard to keep up... when composing these messages is a mere side hobby. But, I digress...
 
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2022/04/the_disinformation_conferen ce_exposes_the_washington_democrat_media_complex.html
 
U. of Chicago student asks, "Do you think the media acted inappropriately when they instantly dismissed Hunter Biden's laptop as 'Russian disinformation'? What can be learned from that [so that we are] ensuring that what we label as disinformation is truly disinformation and not reality?"
 
Anne Applebaum of The Atlantic replies, "My problem with Hunter Biden's laptop is I think [it is] totally irrelevant," she said. "I mean it's not whether it's disinformation or I mean I don't think the -- Hunter Biden's business relationships have anything to do with who should be president of the United States." First off, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Second, THAT is exactly the mindset of a disinformationist: I know better than you what you should know.
 
BUT, to hell with conferences, the Buydem administration is setting up their very own KG..., eh-hem,... DGB, that is, Disinformation Governance Board!!! You cannot make this stuff up! (It is like the advocacy group for the alphabet mafia that is noticeably oddly named the Human Rights Campaign,... eh-hem,... that is, HRC! These people are insidiously narcissistic and power-hungry. But, I again digress...)
 
The DGB will be run out of Homeland Security, the head of which is Alejandro Mayorkas a.k.a., from the looks of "it", Dr. Evil.
 
Mayorkas's claim that the Disinformation Governance Board will help with the immigration "problem" at the border is itself disinformation!!!
 
My God, what we thought were just canaries in the coal mine have turned out to be cats guardingthe canary cage... in the coal mine,... and we patriots are the canaries! But, the free thinkers among us already knew all that... ...
 
Given that we know, we must STOP crediting the Cal Berkeley "free speech" movement back in the 60's with a damn thing... as it was NOT about freedom of speech, per se, that is, for all Americans.  Those communists just wanted their freedom of communist speech, which, according to the very nature of communism, means unquestioned speech,... screaming, shouting and pointing fingers of all-knowing, righteous indignation!  Now, here we are...  Censorship abounds, and the censors are the arbiters of disinformation while they themselves are the purveyors of disinformation!  It is dizzying... and terrifying!

Just lettin' the folks over here on "the Gridiron" know, I have taken, at least, my pithier commentaries on matters sociopolitical here: https://truthsocial.com/@Stegfuzi.
 
Here are, to date, my, what I call, "Truth Bombs":
https://truthsocial.com/@Stegfuzi/108344763895218411
and
https://truthsocial.com/@Stegfuzi/108364237757201554.
 
FYI, yes, you do need to join to view the material.  Again, it is where I will take most of my pithier sociopolitical commentary.  Longer stuff is still probably going to have to go here.
 
"Enjoy"...

It has been awhile since I posted a little dank, sociopolitical wisdom up here, and frankly speaking, I got A LOT of material of good length (beyond which can be posted at, like, TruthSocial) in the queue...  I will try to get to it here soon.  In the meantime, let me share with yous this ongoing, little side project...
 
If you are having a gathering of patriots, just put this thing on the BIG SCREEN and on loop and yous will be good to go,...and, mind you, this thing continues to grow:
