Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, February 12, 2019

They saw an opportunity and they seized it, set it up, then scaled it. Some enterprising chimpanzees at the Belfast Zoo in Northern Ireland's capital, propped a tree branch against the wall of their enclosure Saturday to make an improvised, yet sturdy, ladder. "Don't escape, you bad little gorilla," a child chimed in as stunned zoo visitors filmed the breakout.

Chimps are smarter than "Conservatives"!

Never, ever would have guessed that...

'Chimps Build Makeshift Ladder, Break Free From Zoo Enclosure"

Big deal. I remember not too long ago a chimp invaded Iraq based on blatantly false intelligence...

At least Nulli was smart enough to build a ladder and escape his ideological prison...

I didn't realize you could build a ladder out of plonks.

What's Mexican for plonk? Asking for drug dealers, rapists, and some good people.

Nulli then took that ladder, flipped it over and used it to climb down into his new ideological prison on the other side of the wall. How smart was that?

Touche, I will leave that one to Nulli.

I get a heavy dose of leftwing news and opinion from the retort. Unlike the DR Left, I search out contrary opinions, bubble dweller.

We know you search them out so you can attack them from the comfort of your new ideological prison.

Any time I post links to contrary sources, they are immediately slaughtered and unread. All Team Blue reads is HuffnPuff/Vox/Buzzfeed/ThinkProgress/TeenVogue/DailyKos, etc. That's a real ideological prison.

Hypocrite.

Those contrary sources like pjmedia, the Washington Examiner and the Daily Caller are just as much an ideological prison and the fact that you don't recognize that is merely a reflection of how comfortable you feel behind those walls.

Difference is, I read more leftwing opinion than anything else, thanks to the retort.

they're reporting on CNN that there's a caravan of chimps heading for the southern border

That chimp will probably be thrown in "The Hole" for 30 days and put on bread & water rations only.

Wow. Chimps can do things like this, but Democrats can't figure out that you can't get to Hawaii by train.

In some ways, Nulli makes for an interesting case-study. In olden times he was clearly liberal/left leaning. Now, after more than a decade interacting on the DR, he is clearly right wing leaning. No way to deny it based on his long posting history. He may be the only person in DR history to actually change his fundamental political outlook as a result of interacting with other people on the DR over an extended period of time.

I'll let you ponder the cause and effect analysis that caused that result...

Nulli is so right wing he's going to boycott Gillette when it comes time to select a blade to slice his limp wrists again.

LOL.
More like, he "interacted" with Andrea, a mattress so much he had a stroke.

I've probably moved to the right over the course of the last 15 years here, though probably not enough that the people who contributed to the shift would acknowledge it. FFS I even voted for a Democrat in 2016. Never thought I'd say that.

I changed. I gave up on the Democrats.

Will will build the Train! We need the biggest and the bestest and the fastest Trains!

Because America!

In fact, we are building that Train right now! In fact, it is already built!

You can't see it? Didn't we tell you it was going to be invisible?

Yeah... It's an invisible Train that we are gonna build, that we already are building, but the Mexicans are gonna pay for it AND build it!

So what is your problem with trains and train security?

Train hater!

MAGA!!
