Let me post the following question, as it seems at least slightly apropos to the thread...

Given Pres Trump's many comments against parts of the new media that he oft says should be shut down, do you think that pres Trump should be the one who decides what news outlets Americans are able to read?

No, just because he wishes, or says it, doesn't make it so. Here its actually happening, and you deflect to Trump.

Let me ask you this question do you think Trump has that kind of power?

That is how bat ---- insane the left has become, or should I say, Trump has made them. When it really happens you don't care, Trump perhaps suggests it on Twitter, and the sky is falling.

hey dummy.

The Presidents words do matter.

Even if they are the words of a fool and mostly misspelled.

Andreamackris calling the "left" batshizzle insane, projection at its finest.
Serious question to you, AM: Given the totality of Trump's actions and words and tweets since becoming POTUS, about what percentage of those things do you agree with?

Hell, I thought the left was all in for censoring news and views they disagree with. I would think that the CCPs actions would be applauded in the left, as they are attempting the same thing here.

You're pathetically confused, if that's the case.

You thought wrong. And evidently no new information seeps into your thought process.

Some on the left want to censor hate, but you be you. The right still wants to censor sex, ban drugs and punish people for harmless hobbies.

But go ahead and claim the right is on the side of freedom.

#10 | Posted by bored, Define "hate". Is it hate to point out that 3.5% of the population commit half the murders in this country? According to YouTube it is.
I am not on the right, I am a libertarian with a sever disdain of "group think". And if you had ever read any of my posts on these subjects, I have continually called for the legalization of ALL drugs. Let natural selection rid us of the weak and stupid. Censor sex? Hell, even the most sexually liberated countries I have lived in keep porn and prostitution out of sight of children. What harmless hobbies are you referring to? ----------? ------? Stalking? Building IEDs?

I know you are trolling, but you are doing it badly. If you are going to troll, at least don't do it so amateurishly.

Why would China block the Guardian? Have you ever read the Guardian?

#13 | Posted by HeliumRat at 2019-06-12 12:15 AM | Reply

WHY didn't they block The Washington Post or the New York Times ???...

Because they know good fake liberal BS masquerading as "journalism" when they read it.

To the commies and democrats...

Fake News is FUN.
Real News is Dangerous.

You realize, I hope, the Mueller Report proved a lot of the reporting correct, especially what Team Trump kept calling "fake news". Turns out it was usually Trump telling a lie.

If you want to make a Conservative angry - lie to them.
If you want to make a Liberal angry - tell them the truth.
