“Liberal press” bias [quote=“Jdsmith”]Nah…there’s nothing to it… [quote]Results 1 - 10 of about 1,360,000 for bias liberal press. (0.36 seconds[/quote][/quote]Hmmm… well, you got more results, but mine came up faster. Does that mean that there are more right wing cranks out there saying this, and fewer, though better linked, left wing cranks countering? (Wait a second, isn’t the number and quality of links how Google ranks the quality and relevance of a site? )[quote]Results 1 - 20 of about 883,000 for right wing media bias. (0.27 seconds)[/quote]
A few other prominent fruitcake results, in order of number of hits:
Results 1 - 20 of about 728,000 for moon program fake. (0.22 seconds)
Results 1 - 20 of about 764,000 for tooth fairy. (0.08 seconds)
Results 1 - 20 of about 799,000 for Easter Bunny. (0.29 seconds)
Results 1 - 20 of about 1,090,000 for Jewish conspiracy. (0.10 seconds)[/quote]
None of those got as many hits as “liberal press bias”, so I guess they’re not as likely to be true. BUT, there’s far more evidence to support these being factual: [quote]Results 1 - 20 of about 2,280,000 for Santa Claus [definition]. (0.10 seconds)
Results 1 - 20 of about 3,260,000 for evolution false. (0.16 seconds)[/quote]
[quote=“jdsmith”]Good, because those previous edicts were often proved to be…well… hypocritical…[…] little things like this…[/quote] Yeah, there’s a whole lot of Islamic nutbars out there. I was going to counter your point with a links to a few American “white power” pages, (legitimate, I think, given that the Jihadists are frequently compared to the KKK) but then thought twice about it; I feel dirty just thinking about touching those links. Besides, there was too much to wade through to find a real argumentative zinger… try 23,400,000 results for “white power america.”
[quote]Tell that to Balbir Singh Sodhii.[/quote][quote]That’s a low blow and you know it…standing up against this kind of idiocy doesn’t mean I allow every idiot to stand behind me…[/quote][/quote]You’re right, that was a low blow. But delivered in a friendly way. Just my way of asking that you be careful when slinging the “idiot paint brush” around, ‘cause you never know who might get splattered. I’ve got plenty of Muslim friends, and a few relatives, who could, and do, do a far better job of deconstructing the militants’ bs. Why don’t they get the air time? Why don’t we hear about it? I don’t know. Why don’t we hear anything “fair and balanced” from Fox? Why is there so much Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly and Ann Coulter on American airwaves?
(At this point, don’t you think that this quotation-happy post has almost becoming a game of cards, in which we’re each looking for the trump?)
[quote][quote]No culture, and nobody has an innate right to claim to be the good, the pure, and the virtuous. What goes around comes around, so get off your high horse. Or do you want to be saddled with blame for all the odious deeds done in the name of American culture over the past 50 years?[/quote] [quote=“Jdsmith”]Horseshit…EVERY culture has this right. However, the legitimacy of any culture proclaiming this right is debatable…[/quote][/quote] Yeah, yeah… everyone’s allowed to say whatever they want, no matter how stupid or repulsive. Wait a second, screaming “Fire” in a crowded theatre, we don’t actually have that right. So while superficially anyone can say anything, substantially that’s not the case. Horseshit is more valuable than much that passes for intelligent speech.
[quote=“Jdsmith”]Ok, they’re money grubbing letches…show me where they actually SAY “KILL THE MUSLIMS.” GO to memritv.org/ and you shall find LOTS of muslim preachers who do.[/quote]I found one in the Pentagon. I could seek further, but I think this one’s enough… he is a three star general, after all.
I “see what I read too,” but seldom believe it. Orwell was right, all political language is designed “to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”
