Senator Hirono Demands ACB Be Weighed Against A Duck To See If She Is A Witch
WASHINGTON, D.C.—After two days of Amy Coney Barrett gracefully and stoically answering questions with perfect recall and no notes, suspicions grew on Capitol Hill that she might be a practitioner of the dark arts.
"Oh, she's a witch alright, just look at her!" said Senator Hirono. "Just look at the way she's dressed and how she's so much prettier and smarter than us! She's in league with Beelzebub himself, I just know it! We must burn her!"
Senator Hirono then pulled a live duck out of a massive burlap sack next to her and announced: "In addition to being a Senator, I am also quite wise in the ways of science. Everyone knows witches burn because they are made of wood. I think I read that somewhere. Wood floats, and so do ducks-- so logically, if Amy Coney Barrett weighs as much as this duck I found in the reflection pool outside, she is a witch and must be burned."
Facebook has retracted this story, apologising, though apparently still maintaining it was right, which is the fashion, these days. It demonetized the Bee as punishment.
So after a manual review, Facebook says they stand by their decision to pull down this article and demonetize our page. I’m not kidding. They say this article “incites violence.” It’s literally a regurgitated joke from a Monty Python movie!https://t.co/U9B6tTOj6N
“In what universe does a fictional quote as part of an obvious joke constitute a genuine incitement to violence?” another tweet from Dillon read. “How does context not come into play here? They’re asking us to edit the article and not speak publicly about internal content reviews. Oops, did I just tweet this?”- Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon
Back when FB, Twitter, YouTube, etc., were only censoring, shadow banning or banning Alex Jones, I was exclaiming that this must be opposed, no matter what side of the political spectrum was being hit. Sure enough, FB, et al, has been banning a huge swath of opinion and fact, including the NY Post revellations about the Hunter/Biden scandals. The media began by insisting the stories were fake news, and then shifted to banning based on the stories not being verified. The Steele Dossier; Russiagate; the Atlantic Monthly story claiming Trump slurred the militarily; and so many other accusations - THESE were unverified, but the press ran with them - for years. It has been a non-stop, unverified, disingenuous witch-hunt against Trump, rationalising censorship, by an overtly biased Big Tech and Corporate Media, including by the NYT and WP.
For the first presidential debate, one network, (NBC?) lined up three "common folk" who had been identified earlier, on air, as being pro-Biden or leaning-Biden, to act as, "undecided voters." After the debate was over, all three of them came out in favour of Biden - who would have thought?
Taking no heed of science, and the fact that Trump would be ready for the planned second debate, the Election Commission cancelled the second debate, favouring Hidin' Biden. For the third debate, after the release of the Hunter/Biden scandal news, the Commission cacelled the topic of, "Foreign affairs," so Biden would not have to respond to the scandal - and to avoid airing Trump's foreign policy successes: China, Korea, pulvarising Isis, replacing NAFTA, and achieving peace in the Middle East. He has kept us out of wars, and been nominated for four Noble Peace Prizes. No one is supposed to know this. Whereas trump's Middle East Peace Deal is unprecedented in recent times, the banning of Foreign Policy as a topic for the last debate was unprecedented in modern debate history.
All debate moderators were shown to have been, in the past, pro-Biden, or Biden political associates. This was born out by the bias of Wallace, who ended up laughing along with Biden near the end of debate 1; and by the crass harassment of Trump during the his "town-hall," compared to the kit gloved Stephanopolis used with Biden. In the first and last debates, it was Biden who began the interruptions. In both, Trump, was interrupted by the moderator many times more often than was Biden. In the last debate, Trump, who was coming down with Coronavirus, was so interrupted 111 times - Biden, only 22. In the Pence/Harris debate: By some accounts, Harris was given over three minutes talking time over Pence.
There is a holding pattern, by a few giant media companies, and a few giant big tech companies, to keep the trust from getting out, and to support the falsehood of Joe Biden. They are deeply afraid, of each other, that another Wikileaks dump, or Access Hollywood video, will arise to help bring down the Dem candidate, as it was for bringing down Hillary - for which they were blamed, internally, and from higher up. This has been the same spirit behind the whole Russiagate diversion, and related.
And so, we have seen CNN, NBC, etc., talkers, becoming absolutely extreme in their biased behaviours, not acting like journalists, but like nasty, snarky, schoolyard bullies, berating and mocking the president, and anyone supporting him. My old 'hero', Robert Reich is calling for a, "Truth and Reconciliation Commission," to be called on Trump and anyone who associated with him, so that they would all virtually be thrown out of office. This pitchfork mob mentality is extremely dangerous for our country, and even more-so because it is fueled by powers that be that are hidden like the Wizard behind a screen of money and media. George Soros wants to see all this happen. China wants it. Big Tech. Banks. Bureaucracy.
Trump may have a nasty, unseemly style, but he uses it to divorce himself from naysayers and a great mass drag on change. It is a style that has tamed Korea, united Arabs and Israel, achieved a new trade deal for North America, and, when necessary, scared a lot little big man leaders into shutting up and going along. Trump is bad on LGBT and Global Warming. (On LGBT, he wasn't, at first, but he was later convinced to shut out LGBT at the bequest of the Evangelicals. On Warming, he knows it exists, but is giving priority to the economy. In both cases, which are very important to me, I feel he may swing over in the right direction once he is in a second term, not having to worry about getting reelected).
The media, and big tech, are congregates of people, who are not only all out to make money, and are not only all-out to impress viewers with their dazzlingness, but who are mainly composed of journalism, which has tended to be a liberal trade. But they are no longer after the big story, meant to free the truth and save the world. Today they are so in a rut about impeaching Richard Nixon, that they have been reliving that fantasy for half a century. They don't see things as they are. they see thing the way they think the public should want to see things. And they listen to their democratic overlords. Prime example: Andrea Mitchell, who is married to Fed bankster, Alan Greenspan, and who keeps insisting that anything appearing to favour Trump is Russian Interference.
Today, the media is trying to hide the truth, because so many people within it it selfishly fear disappointing each other, and the powers that be. There has evolved a mass cult of going-along to get-along, meaning that if one shouts louder, lies harder, and insults deeper, then the media Gestapo will not come for them. Is this not the very same shared hysteria we find in BLM and Antifa followers, who goad each other into taking the most sensational selfie in front some burning car or building? Or the same as those almost-peaceful protestors who stalk outdoor cafes and shout at complete strangers to say, "Black lives matter!" or like the Antifa members goading each other to attack or burn some bigger and better target - or reach into cars and pummel drivers for driving down a street upon which they are illegally rioting? Doesn't all this hearken back to the McCarthy era - or worse - when Cracker was king? Talk about reversed racism, this Bizarro World.
It is all a big fake-out. It disgusts me because it is all about lies, and it is all about the worse nature of groupism, which I have written against in the past. Honestly, even if all of Trump's policies were as bad as his stance on Warming, I would support him JUST to stand against this disease which is consuming the country from the left. Unfounded sources. Innuendo. Lies. Pomposity. Entitlement. Greed. Corruption. Putting alid on the truth, and hidin' like Biden. What is this. It is a farce! Dangerous, but insane.
In case you don't know, I backed Bernie in both primary runs. You can see my writings over at bernie2016. It was when Bernie lost to Hillary in 2016, and immediately began painting Trump as the Great White Satan, (which was apparently the agreement he had made with the Clinton Campaign ahead of time, seeing as he's not even a member of the party), that I lost my fervour. Why? He was cutting up the pie of populism into Socialism versus NAZIism, just as the powers that be want it - polarisation, left versus right, divide and conquer. Instead, we could have used that wave of populism to bring far left and far right together, over many things they had in common, and brought the middle class together in a new politics of down versus up. Talksters on the Right did so as well, and this swayed Trump to start hating on Sanders, whom he once respected somewhat.
And, if you have any doubts about my devotion to environmental, progressive, or wealth inequality issues, just go to my communities, w_a_r_m_i_n_g, liberal_plus, and o_c_c_u_p_y. Do join! I have also written against media and big tech monopolies and disinformation, and supported internet privacy and whistleblowers, at, wiki_truth.
Remember that Charlie Hebdo cartoon, mocking Dinish deSouza - (or was it?) - it was a major issue, all over the world. Now, we have Facebook censoring Monty Python, and countless other satire, opinions and facts, usually because they are contrary to the Democratic party. What are we now, finally a third world country, run by a single party? With the support of mass hysteria? This is bad - BAD. I don't care of this is coming from the left or the right, I am strongly against it! I have watched it perversely grow and mutate like a zombie blob from space, and eat itself into the hearts and minds of people who formerly looked sane, intelligent and human. Their souls have been taken away. Just as Marxist Critical Theory, and related, sees everything not as ethics and law but as the result of groups seeking power and priviledge, this morose movement has adopted that evry same politik, and will not hear the truth, or humanity, or dissent - they only hear what they feel will empower them. Tyranny from the left can be a dangerous, anti-human, muirdourous conflagration - and there is no stopping it once it installs itself as the government of a country, and forever runs its pogroms and offings in order to obscure from view its vast, inevitable economic and social
While demons dance on CNN, mocking the president, our hearts and sense of fairness - of reality - are being sucked out of us. NPR, supported by taxpayer money, boldly announced that it would refuse to cover the Hunter/Biden scandals, giving the same flawed rationalisations as the for-profit networks. Not only do they disallow the facts, they rush to judge anything from the president that is sarcasm, or fun, to be the latest evil or racist edict from Don the Hitler. Orange Man bad! He was never serious when he said drink chlorine to fight COVID. He never gave a speech saying he stood with Confederate generals. But, biased "fact-checkers" gobble this up and spew it out as being officially bannable. For some reason, though, a phony Russiagate witch-hunt is given full reign.
These days, unless you are safe and comfy in your echo-chamber group, you cannot make a joke without countless zombie alien parasites swarming in to attack you. Today, there would be no airing on TV of Monty Python, or Seinfeld, or Blazing Saddles, etc., etc. Instead, we have endless, pointless, weak political pablum. Blah! Why? Because people have grown comfortable with letting other people think and laugh for them. Jesus christ, if I were ever to sing or whip out my harmonica in this neighbourhood, I would be gang-raped. Because free thought and creativity are NOT ALLOWED unless in sanctioned outlets, like Colbert or SNL. A dozen popstars make millions upon millions of dollars, but the rest of the young population is resigned to mindlessly walking down the sidewalk chanting angry rap lyrics. Anything else is unmanly. You can forget ever making it big in America, so why not, after all, riot?
What passes for humour these days? Immediately after the last debate, Democrat psychophants took to Twitter to mock Trump for saying that Coyotes were bringing in illegal aliens. They thought he meant actual, four-legged coyotes. Oh, ha ha, what a joke! The whole thing is to run to your social media and see how far you can go in insulting your own president, calling him a, "stupid f**k, when in fact you are betraying your own stupidity, and contibuting to a massive wall of ignorance which will one day end by falling on you. This cannot go on forever without a backlash form the right, and all those so-called racists with their guns. People need to wake. It is almost too far gone.
