The dome or firmament is BLUE when it is lightened during the day, and it is totally black or dark in absence of light. It is a great HOAX or LIE or DECEPTION of astronomy all these images of galaxies and nebulas they have shown us. Don’t BELIEVE them. Believe in the Bible, in your senses, not in the falsely so-called science of the jesuit freemasons astronomers of the vatican who are the ones who control nasa.

A laptop got stolen from Pelosi's office during the peaceful protest, and it is believed to be Special Operations using the protest (and protestors) to cover the operation, liking covered itself under the combination of the Stafford Act and the Emergency Powers that are still in effect because the whole of the United States remains under a State of Emergency.

And what's on that laptop? Undeniable evidence.

It can be of the fraud. It can be of the human trafficking her children (as with Biden's) is involved with. Whatever it is, it has Pelosi in a panic and that put entirety of the Thralls in the United States in a panic. Word went out fast to nail this shift in the narrative; it's also why the sudden deplatforming hit when and how it is- it's there to attempt to cut off Trump's ability to spread the word.

The problem is that Trump has direct, hardwired access to every last American via the Emergency Alert System. There is no way for the Thralls to stop that signal without stopping their own and going dark themselves; they may do so anyway, just to stop the God-Emperor, but by then it will be too late for them.

(…) They sense it, which explains the panic, but they can't perceive it so they're going to get it anyway and because none of them took the olive branch none of them will be spared.

Give $600 to a poor person & it's gone in a week.

Give $600 to a rich person & it's multiplied 10X in a few years or less.

When someone points out that poor people need to buy food and pay rent…

Exactly. Because investing in liabilities instead of assets is how poor people use their money and therefore lose it.

I mean even if the rich person was stripped of all his riches and put in the position of the poor, with the rich person’s mentality he or she could figure out how to be rich again from that situation.

I had to fill our a form at our local pharmacy and they asked for "Sex Assigned at Birth." So they know to be true to science there are only two genders, male and female. So they word it this way to be "politically correct" but in reality they are acknowledging: 1. There are only two genders of humans; 2. One is either male or female; 3. It's important for medical reasons to know if one is male or female. As Jesus states in Mark 10:6. "But from the beginning of creation, God made them male and female."

Responding to a meme about what Antifa actually means…

And now, presenting the Memey for Most Annoying Meme!
There was incessant gaslighting over the summer about Antifa. It was simultaneously not a real organization and just an "idea," while at the same time a brave movement fighting fascism. Even as Antifa groups occupied, burned and destroyed sections of American cities, memes continued to claim the black clad group were akin to American soldiers in WWII.
Even though Antifa would now consider the average WWII vet a racist perpetrator of toxic masculinity and Western hegemony. They also seemed to ignore that Stalin was anti-fascist.
Runner-up in the comments.
Stay tuned for more Memey Awards, they run until the end of the year. For a complete list of the 2020 Memeys (updated in real time):

Swing States that have found massive VOTER FRAUD, which is all of them, CANNOT LEGALLY CERTIFY these votes as complete & correct without committing a severely punishable crime. Everybody knows that dead people, below age people, illegal immigrants, fake signatures, prisoners,....

.....and many others voted illegally. Also, machine “glitches” (another word for FRAUD), ballot harvesting, non-resident voters, fake ballots, “stuffing the ballot box”, votes for pay, roughed up Republican Poll Watchers, and sometimes even more votes than people voting, took....

....place in Detroit, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and elsewhere. In all Swing State cases, there are far more votes than are necessary to win the State, and the Election itself. Therefore, VOTES CANNOT BE CERTIFIED. THIS ELECTION IS UNDER PROTEST!

Erin O'Toole #crackpot #pratt google.com

the article is about Erin O'Tooles' comments about residential schools but was too long to submit. This came at the end.

“Most of the lefty radicals are also the dumbest people at your university,” O’Toole said at the outset of the video.

He then tells the group that he’s got a “nugget” for them that, when he says it in Parliament, “silences the Liberals like you wouldn’t believe.”

“Conservatives, when it comes to residential schools in the modern era, have a better record than the Liberals. That shocks the hell out of the woke crowd, I’ll tell you,” O’Toole said.

Can Men and Women be Friends?

If you are a woman and have a friend who is male, it’s likely that he would have sex with you if given the chance. But if you are man and have a friend who is female, know that she would likely say no to going to bed with you.

It makes sense that men see all women as potential partners first, and potential friends second. Biologically, men are wired to seek out to be with as many women as they can. But women, on the other hand, have always been the picky ones; they must select the best male out of all available to be with them (i.e., to protect them, care for them, and carry their child).

For women, if a man does not surpass her threshold of standards (e.g., appearance, character, style) he is immediately demoted to the “friend” category, one where he is likely to never escape from. If he surpasses it however, he enters the “date” category, where he must compete with other men for her.

For men, even when rejection occurs (explicitly by being told no, or implicitly by seeing there is no chemistry), the possibility of sex always remains in the air. While the man may remain “friends” with the woman, he will generally be willing to have sex if the opportunity ever arises.

No friendship?

As the video above shows, even among ‘friends’ who have known each other for years, men would jump at the opportunity to have sex. Women however, would not. This means that women can form casual friendships- which never go beyond that – with men they see as unworthy of getting in bed with. Men however form friendships that are forever capable of evolving into more.

In short, men can’t form real friendships with women because they will always crave more. Women can’t form real friendships with men because they will always see them as inferior. Surely counterexamples exist, and good friendships without ulterior motives have been made in the past. But for many, friendship is a white lie they tell each other.

Randy Quaid and Donald Trump #conspiracy #pratt #wingnut twitter.com

Randy Quaid: I just don’t see Americans rolling over for this election fraud. Do you?

Donald Trump: No!

Randy Quaid: Never underestimate The greatest President this country has ever had. Trump is an astonishing man of the people, fighting for all of us, not Big Pharma!

Donald Trump: Thank you Randy, working hard to clean up the stench of the 2020 Election Hoax!

Randy Quaid: We’ve lost confidence in the system that elects our leaders. 79 million Americans believe election was rigged, the results fraudulent. We need an in-person-only-paper ballot re-vote, especially in the States where flagrant irregularities have occurred. No accuracy, no democracy!

Donald Trump: Are you listening Republicans?

They use the forceps to rip the child apart limb from limb and crush its skull. Michael here thinks that dismembering children is great fun. He is quite literally a psychopath. The pro-abortion movement is almost entirely populated by psychopaths. Cartoonishly evil.

Some people say to ignore this stuff. I strongly disagree. When the pro-abortion movement advertises its depravity, we should absolutely pay attention and point to it. I am more than happy to amplify their message that they are evil scumbags.

Submitter’s Note: I was unable to track down the original Facebook post, so the Reddit is all I’ve got.

1. Pedophilia is a sexuality whether you like it or not.

2. Rape is bad, but its a natural thing, so the punishments shouldnt be so harsh. It should be equivalent to beating someone up.

3. Covid is literally a flu, there were a lot of more dangerous diseases in the past and people werent panicking nearly as much as now.

4. Slavery is a perfectly normal thing to do. Better people/race are enslaving worser people/race to do the hard work for them. Its a natural world order. Since whites are far better than blacks, then blacks should be enslaved.

It takes only a bit of common sense to figure these things out, so if you disagree you are either brainwashed or just plainly stupid, I dont know which one is worse.

I send my Dad a bunch of facts, articles and videos of REAL easy to follow facts from actual doctors, scientists and physicians from around the world breaking down why the PCR covid tests are faulty, why the “new case numbers” are inflated and faulty, why the death numbers are false, why masks and social distancing is a farce, hey Covid is just the rebranded flu and on and on. I sent him facts about the MSM and how they are simply propaganda machines lying to us every day.

What does my dad do in response? Proceed to hysterically text me articles from The NY Times and MSNBC of “all the new cases” and “new covid spikes,” and why you shouldn’t be around anyone for Thanksgiving/Christmas, and especially stay away from people who have been to any rallies or flown on a plane recently.

I just can’t anymore W/ my family. I give up.

The worst part about it is my parents are not Liberals. They are intelligent Republicans, Trump supporters who watch FOX news (but still think it’s the truth). So sad.

My mom didn’t fear germs at all. She feared toxic chemicals. She learned that a strong immune system is the best fight against germs and the diseases that result from them. So I grew up believing the same thing. I haven’t gotten the ordinary illnesses (colds and flu) much until I began having grandchildren. If they had a cold, I would get it and it would be much worse than the others due to my weakened immune system because of the lack of hormone production and an almost dead pituitary. However, once I began taking elderberry syrup, I haven’t been getting their colds, thankfully. It really does work!

Mothers of young children, you can rest assured concerning this virus since no children from zero to nine have died from it and most children have mild cases of this. It seems to mostly be killing the elderly and those with health problems. (The average of death from the virus is 80 years old.) I fit into the health problems category but I don’t fear it. I will do the best to keep myself healthy but trust the Lord with my life. Remember, this virus is NOTHING close to being like the Bubonic plague or polio, yet many are acting as if it were.

I am not a hand washer since I’m not afraid of germs. I have dry skin and I greatly dislike the feel of dry hands. Yes, I wash my hands after using the restroom but I have never thought about washing my hands after going shopping or out and about. I don’t use hand sanitizer and won’t since I have read that soap and water are much more effective. I will now wash my hands after going outside of my home to shop or anything else I do away from home. I will try to not touch my face if I haven’t washed my hands. I don’t eat junk food and have a lot of elderberry syrup ready to go. I take vitamin C and D every day. I do what I can and leave the rest in the Lord’s hands.

(submitter’s note: this was in the midst of a reply thread on a LegalEagle video)

(Original commenter: "COUNT THE VOTES"
- A crowd outside a vote counting location, inside which election officials were counting votes)

Love how this take is so completely inaccurate. Same way the media tried to make the new mail-in ballots for this election to being interchangeable with absentee ballots. Same way they don't distinguish between legal and illegal votes. Same way they consider illegal immigrants and legal immigrants as a unit to use for arguments on immigration.

This one is completely misleading too because the take is LEGAL votes. Bot of the arguments are for the same purpose. "STpop the count" was to wait until they are validated, and the other is to count legal votes.

MSM twisted the meaning into something else, and it's not making me optimistic that enough people have learned to find reputable news, and not opinion analysis, or complete disregard for facts as truth by twisting the context enough to create a completely different meaning.

Masks do not work. You just think they do. Like the dumbest of sheep, a multitude of Americans walk around like zombies in blind obedience to an evil cabal intent on stripping all liberty from the citizens of the United States.

The ghouls behind this PLANNED-demic are sitting around their corporate board rooms chuckling at how easy it was to gain total control over a mind-numbed citizenry. This entire lock-down has never been about a virus, my friends. It has been about conditioning the American people to blindly obey the edicts of a totally out of control government. All they used to accomplish this is “FEAR”.

[...]

This is leading us someplace dangerous. Compliant sheep are easy to control. Fear is the number one way of controlling people. Soon you will not be able to enter a store, fly on a plane, or visit a relative without a mask. OOOPS…. we are already there. Now they want to cancel Christmas and many of the sheep will dutifully fall in line. Anything to keep from dying from a PLANNED Demic that has not increased the death rate in the nation. Blind guides, Jesus called them. We are sheep falling in a ditch lead by blind, deceivious guides. Throw you “pastor” in ditch...in many cases he is leading the parade.

We are about to execute a plan that we encourage others to follow. Let us begin to organize group arrests in some of these stores that will not let us enter unless muzzled. MASK WEARING IS NOT A LAW! Governors cannot make laws. Health departments cannot make laws. Have we forgotten high school civics? Don’t you know we have inalienable rights? “My body, my choice,” isn’t that what the pro-aborts yell all the time?

[...]

Some of my buddies and me are going to go get arrested. Anybody want to join us? Start a push-back in your own hometown. If not me, who? If not now, when? Masks today, Vaccines tomorrow, gun confiscation next week.

Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God. Time is running out. Let us fill up the jails.

Take off the muzzle and bark.

Sigh... yet another quiz incorrectly categorizing humans as mammals. The idea that humans are animals is based on the debunked theory of evolution. Irreducible complexity destroys the theory of evolution. I challenge any evolutionists on this site to read the arguments put forth by Michael Behe in favor of intelligent design.

Also, if humans are just animals, then doesn't that imply that a sprawling cityscape is no less natural than a bird's nest? After all, both are habitats that have been created by animals. Yet I don't know any evolutionist who would refer to an urban environment as "natural".

People keep staying black people are killed for these small crimes like counterfeit money or whatever, but that’s a deliberate (hopefully because otherwise it’s really dumb) misinterpretation. They’re killed for putting officers’ lives at risk. No cop says “oh you’ve stolen, I will shoot you now”, but if they tell you to put your hands up and you just waltz to your car and reach inside, now you’ve put them at risk when you could have just put your fucking hands up, for everyone’s sake.

How did Breonna Taylor put officers' lives at risk?

Not that I really expected an honest discussion, but I’m still disappointed this was your chosen tactic.

How was that dishonest? Because it doesn’t fit your “black people are dangerous” rhetoric?

Because you’re picking an incident that was almost certainly accidental and using it as your main argument against something that is purposeful. Cops also get in car accidents with innocent people, but that’s not a good example to use in this context and doing so is just silly and dishonest.

Dear Karen,
the W.H.O. and the C.D.C. have both changed their stances to;
MASKS ARE FOR THE BRAINWASHED IDIOTS!

I'll never forget a "news blurb" I heard, but never found ever again:
"Democrats are delighted with the success of their Milgram experiment".
incase you don't know, the Milgram experiment was to see if people could be
forced to murder someone with only the demands of an authority figure.

Wearing masks? isn't about a PLANDEMIC, or a pan(DEM)ic, aka DEM PANIC.
its about taking your rights away, its about stealing your freedom.

DO NOT WEAR A MASK!

Conservapedia #wingnut #conspiracy #pratt conservapedia.com

The "Antifa" (short for "Anti-fascist action"), sometimes known as the ARA (short for "Anti-Racist Action") is an international terrorist movement of anarchists and Marxist-Leninists dedicated to the overthrow of the existing order and responsible for violence, mayhem, and church burnings in the United States and throughout the world. While posing as an anti-fascist movement, the groups in fact is an intolerant hate group that uses fascist tactics and direct quotations from Adolf Hitler. The group relies on Cultural Marxist ideals and rhetoric for recruiting young people. It has been designated as a terrorist group in the United States. The Democratic National Committee partners with Antifa for fundraising and group works closely with Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). They have been spotted chanting 'Death to America', 'Black Power', as well as other racist and anarchist chants on the streets. They are known for rioting in the streets.

Although Antifa has been promoted by CNN as the elite Trump resistance movement since 2017, the concept of anti-fascism, especially as a far-left ideology, existed as early as World War II for propaganda purposes, where Stalin referred to the USSR as "anti-fascist", with the obvious implication that the USSR and Stalin were "morally better" than the Nazis and Hitler, using the misapplication of Nazism and fascism as being of the far right instead of being of the far left. They are also anti-American in outlook, often chanting "No border! No wall! No U.S.A. at all!"

Basil Zempilas #transphobia #pratt abc.net.au

Equality groups have branded comments the Perth Lord Mayor made about transgender people on breakfast radio "repugnant and bigoted".

Basil Zempilas, who was elected to office earlier this month, told listeners of the breakfast show he co-hosts on 6PR it was "wrong" for someone to identify as a different gender to their physical anatomy.

"If you've got a penis mate, you're a bloke," he said yesterday morning.

"If you've got a vagina, you're a woman. Game over."

Mr Zempilas then laughed off a suggestion by co-host Steve Mills that he would likely come into contact with transgender people in his role as Lord Mayor.

Mr Zempilas also called for any women with a penis to ring the radio station for the chance to win a $100 store voucher.

When Mr Mills suggested that people in the wider community may disagree with his stance, Mr Zempilas replied: "Well mate, if you want to go softy, lefty, namby-pamby."

The pair had been discussing an LGBTIQ boxing tournament in Sydney, which led to a debate about parents who did not identify their children as male or female.

In fact, North Korea is ranked at or near the bottom of several freedom rankings, including Freedomhouse and Heritage.org.

Philosophically, we disagree. Personal freedom is a lie. An ideal for Christians. Nature only knows the survival of the population. This way, I am philosophically fascist, authoritarian - all men and women in Juche Korea work for the betterment of their entire nation. Even the lowliest job is important.

Life for one's own self is disgusting, no wonder southern Koreans are emigrating to the USA by the millions, and never have children. This is so funny when only a few hundred people per year emigrate from the DPRK.

the common citizen thats being oppressed or for the Kim dynasty that only seeks to expand their power.

We are all "oppressed" by life. The way of individualism is suicide - collective suicide. Beauty lies in embracing our oppression, and by working out a great future together, not dying alone.

if NK did not pose such a threat and be so aggressive against literally everyone then the US would have no reason to have a presence in SK.

Asking a foreign power for help in the matters of civil war is unfair and scummy. See the Irish in the 12th century.

Also, American occupiers kill Korean girls (Wikipedia).

I honestly get green with envy that the DPRK can have such glory, and my nation is drowning in squalour.

[…]

Thats not even taking into account the soldiers used by the PRC, which amounted to roughly 3 million over the course of the war.

Wasn't the RoK propped up by Americans? Then it's fair game to bring in friends (the Chinese are far closer to the DPRK both racially and ideologically, Mao Tse-tung was like a brother to Comrade Kim Il Sung).

I find it amusing that you preach about being independent when the nation you have trumped up as the golden standard has failed by the very metric you hold South Korea against.

Southern Korea bases its entire raison d'être on being a cog in the machine of Christian American capitalism. If they survive its collapse, then we'll talk. But a far more likely scenario is that they'll beg for a reunification under the DPRK to save them from utter chaos.

(The fall of the USSR is nothing like what will happen when the colossus with the feet of lay that America is disintegrates.)

Also, authoritarian governments only care about remaining in power and accruing more power, they don't care about you or anyone else as anything more than a tool by which they can spread their influence.

Yes, the government cares about its people, for without the people, it will not exist. In a word, fascism.

No, the DPRK government is rooted in the Korean race, not in economics or memetics. It is precisely the opposite - it is the southern Korean government that would rather import Filipinos to prop up its failing economy than care for its very population. It is the capitalists who view their people as interchangeable units to produce the idea of money - not the hard matter of blood.

1. Overall, FSTDT is similar to RationalWiki in that it's a left-leaning, mostly atheist and agnostic echo chamber where members more often act like petulant jerks who, by their own admission, love mocking and "calling out" people for saying things they don't like to hear instead of defeating others' arguments rationally. The key difference is that, unlike RW, FSTDT does not masquerade as an encyclopedia.
2. In 2014, a former 40-year atheist and blogger named Stan described the site as a place "…where Atheists and skeptics can have a safe harbor in which to ridicule that which they take out of context. Actually there is a link to context, but no one seems to have used it in my case. It's the sort of snake pit where the target du jour is countered with comments like "asshole", and the standard logic errors which they insist are the logical answers to the "idiot" they are trashing
3. The fact that many users choose to remain anonymous proves that they know what they're doing, while not illegal per se, is unethical enough that they don't want to get caught doing it, especially by the religious friends that many members claim to have in real life.
4. Their whole business model is flawed because, if there were no more writings they don’t like for them to quote on the Internet, the enterprise would lose its purpose and collapse.
5. Their arguments against whatever quotes they find are generally one-sided and full of logical fallacies, often as extremely ideologically biased towards the left as are those on RationalWiki or SJWiki, especially since quotes are taken out of context.
6. They tend to give tags to quotes that do not reflect the quote authors' original intentions, including giving the tag "#fundie" to quotes that have only minimal to no religious connotations. This makes it clear that they want their interpretations of anything they quote to be the only true and correct interpretations.
7. Although they aim to provide links to context for every one of their quotes, users don't seem to reference or pay attention to that context.
8. Many of their arguments amount to nothing more than argumentum ad hominems, or personal attacks, with childish insults and name-calling as well as lazy, unimaginative sex jokes solely to get a rise out of people.
This is often the case with their comments on many quotes under their tag "#dunning-krueger," which refers to people that they believe are "not nearly as smart as they think they are." It's another way of saying, "You're dumb because we said so!" and renders them guilty of the same sense of elitism that they condemn various quoting targets for showing.
The same principle applies to their tag "#pratt," an acronym for "Point Refuted A Thousand Times," which indicates a sense of laziness and unwillingness to have a civil debate and basically says, "We’re right, you're wrong, so shut up already."
9. The people running and/or contributing to it do a terrible job at sourcing for their quotes: many links to context are dead (happens a lot with links aged 10 years or older); image only; and unarchived social media posts that can be easily forged, deleted, or modified.
10. They hate U.S. President Donald Trump so much that they normally avoid saying "Trump" like the Bubonic Plague and do not offer any impartial criticism or say anything forgiving about him, believing that anyone who shows any sympathy or forgiveness towards him is a racist, neo-Nazi, or "wingnut" by association.
They like to whitewash originally well-intentioned but nowadays corrupt and violent groups such as Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the feminist movement.
11. They deny that feminism in history has come in waves and that, in the recent past with third-wave feminism/feminazism, the feminist movement is now a shell of its former self. They even accuse anti-feminist women of being "hypocrites".
12. Anyone who does not support toxic modern feminism is automatically a "#sexist" in their eyes.
13. Anyone who does not support BLM's violent behavior is automatically a "#racist" in their eyes.
They mislabel people guilty of ethnic hatred or xenophobia as "racist" even though individual human races/skin colors are not one and the same as ethnicities or national identities.
14. Like many social justice warriors, they promote minority groups in ways that even minority groups themselves might find offensive. For example, they support LGBTQ2+ characters being inserted casually into entertainment regardless of quality or consequences, force everyone to accept them and condemn anyone who doesn’t accept them or care about their activism, and suggest that anyone who isn’t pro-LGBTQ2+ is automatically a homophobe. All of this essentially gives the LGBTQ2+ community in the real world a bad name.
15. They give credence to the idea that there are more than two genders.
16. As their Website's title implies, they have no qualms in using Christophobic (anti-Christian) language. For example, when discussing matters of Nazism and religion, they often go on screeds about how Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party were (allegedly) Christian. In reality, Hitler was staunchly opposed to mainstream Christianity, according to his Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, and saw it as a branch of Judaism, which he of course hated even more. He thus invented the false religion of "positive Christianity" to deceive German Christians of the day into thinking that they were doing "God's work" by serving the führer.
17. Though one of their tags is "#moonbat" for quotes composed by "left-wing nutjobs," this tag is hardly ever used compared to "#wingnut" for quotes written by "right-wing nutjobs." This makes it even clearer that they are biased towards the left.
18. They like to present readers with crudely-made conclusions instead of letting the evidence speak for itself. This is more of an act of insecurity as they fear that people will not see things the way they do and expect every argument they make to be taken seriously.
19. Many of its members act toxically and intolerantly towards anyone who so much as disagrees with them.
Although they claim to have Christian users, hardly anyone ever comments on quotes to offer a Christian perspective nowadays.
20. They are extremely pro-social justice: they are primarily interested in attempting to correct people and being right, aggressively attacking all who disagree. They claim that this is for their own self-amusement when they write like they would establish dictatorial control over what people say on the Internet if they could, believing that what they do to their targets is somehow "needed". They admit that the only reason they support free speech is so they can have something to attack!
21. It underwent a major revamp in 2019, but its basic, blocky, blandly-colored aesthetics without any modern graphics or features make it look like it's from the late 1990s-early 2000s era.
22. That said, it suffers from a poor Website design overall because it lacks many features and technical conveniences that would be normally present on a message board. For example:
- There is no menu to select how many quotes/comments can be viewed per page, including in search results.
- Search engine filters/results sorters are not always as accurate as they could be.
- The search engine only works with finding quotes, not comments; nor does it list the number of results per search query.
- Sometimes, the last page of a search results list, for whatever reason, turns up completely blank.
- There is no option to report comments (probably intentional, given how the site encourages people to be mean-spirited).
- User pages are nothing more than lists of quotes users have found and comments they've made (probably to preserve their anonymity).
23. Its painfully unprofessional and outright immature logo features a "sexy flying Jesus penis," a crudely-photoshopped devil version of pop singer/songwriter Taylor Swift practicing martial arts, devils in flying saucers, a reptilian alien-type creature with devil horns, a NyQuil bottle with devil horns surrounded by fire, and what appears to be a Biblical leviathan in a bathtub (in reference to one of their more popular and infamous quotes from 2009) eating fast food from McDonald's.
24. If anyone dares to object to the 2020 Coronavirus quarantine or criticizes how governments handle it or how the media misrepresents data and statistics surrounding it, FSTDT will surely go on a witch hunt after them.
25. They do not take responsibility for their actions: they blame others for getting themselves quoted by FSTDT, even if they realize that they have the power and the choice not to quote people they don't like and not to let silly things people write online offend them so much. Moreover, no self-respecting FSTDT user will ever admit to SJW-type behavior.
Likewise, in their FAQ section under "But You're Defaming Me!" they try to rationalize their efforts to defame people by arguing that their targets are sabotaging themselves, not considering the possibility that the quotes they find might have different intended meanings than what they read.

(from the same guy that made this, this is a reply to a comment that he now flagged debunking his anti-mask bullcrap.)
in the united states, the only people dying from the C-19 are in retirement homes and prisons...
places where one can't refuse "mystery-shot-X". Yes, I am saying that the cv-19 dead are either false reporting by hospitals (*to get money, natch) or intentionally murdered...
...By the way, the cdc released a "corrected estimate" of those who have died from covid-19, Not 250,000... nope try less than 6% of that.
do the Democrats kill people to keep their secrets?
just ask Seth Rich, Vince Foster, and over one hundred others on the KILLARY KLINTON BODY COUNT.
Ask sandy hook residents why all, and I mean ALL, home loans and mortgages were paid off simultaneously (on the same day).

MASKS DO NOT WORK!
Do some damn research for your self.

“Vegans shouldn't be aggressive!"
Oh, fuck off, will ya? Nobody expects human rights activists to be “polite” in their advocacy, EXCEPT for the fucking oppressors.

It's always the people engaging in violent behavior who expect activists to be nice and smiley and polite and fucking “respectful”.

You wanna talk about respect? Start respecting the fundamental rights of other sentient beings. And just remember that I can swear all day long, but that still ain't nothing compared to the atrocities you're inflicting upon animals.

I fucking love this shit: the people funding literal slavery criticize me for not being "civil". What a fucking world we live in.

If The Postal Service Was Publicly Traded, It Would Have A Trillion Dollar Market Cap

In the past few days, there has been an unprecedented amount of manufactured drama over the US Postal Service, as discussed in "Unpacking Fact From Fiction Behind The USPS Drama", yet which has continued overnight

And which as Byron York summarizes, "speculation about Trump and the Post Office has grown so frantic that it resembles the frenzy three years ago over allegation--from many of same people--that Trump conspired with Russia to fix the 2016 election."

In any case, we won't belabor the political talking points - as those will be with us every day for the next 78 days - but instead make a market-based observation that if the US Postal Service, which has had just three profitable quarters this decade...

... had been a publicly-traded company, it would easily have a massive market valuation. Why? Because in the last ten years or 40 quarters, the USPS has made $688.7 billion in revenue while losing $68.2 billion, an abysmally bad performance which even such cash incinerators as Tesla, Uber and Netflix can only admire in stunned silence.


And since this market rewards nothing quite as generously as massive cash burn, it is beyond debate that the USPS would have a market cap of over $1 trillion. In fact, thanks to its record net loss, it might even be the world's most valuable company thanks to the Fed which has flipped every market fundamental upside down.

[Submitter’s note: yes, they finally did it. Fundies are now attacking The Handmaiden’s Tale for muh persecution. Be a Christian in Saudi Arabia, funded by Christian Nation America, and then complain]

The Handmaid's Tale' is ugly and anti-Christian. We have a better story to tell

The Handmaid's Tale is a superbly filmed and acted version of Margaret Attwood's 1985 novel and has won five Emmys – including Elizabeth Moss in the lead role deservedly winning best actor. The liberal metro-elites love it because it portrays their nightmare – a United States run by religious fundamentalists, in which women are oppressed and treated as a subservient class.

The Handmaid's Tale portrays an America called Gilead, in which gay men are hanged, abortion is banned and birth control pills are not allowed. Most women have become infertile and so those young women who are fertile are taken as 'handmaids' to be impregnated by the 'commanders'. Although it's a dystopia, at least the Greens should be happy as the USA finally gets on board and reduces carbon emissions by 70 per cent. And there also appears to be racial equality – at least in the TV series. In the book African Americans are removed to national homelands but in the TV series they have an equal role with the whites – I suspect somewhat cynically that this is because an all-white cast would not have gone down well.

The 'baddies' are portrayed in very religious terms. The female leaders who control the handmaids have 'Irish nun' accents, solemnly intoning that 'fertility is a gift from God' – as the girls are prepared to be raped. The handmaids dress in a nun/puritan style. In one strong scene the handmaids are encouraged to take part in a stoning by the chief 'nun' who tells them that 'God's love gives us blessings and gives us challenges' – the challenge in this case being to stone to death one of their sisters. It gives a whole new meaning to the tough love scenario.

The numerous Bible quotes, biblical language and names are set up to portray a scenario where right-wing religious fundamentalists have taken over the USA...watch out, the evangelicals are coming to get you!

The hypocrisy is brilliantly portrayed. The music from Onward Christian Soldiers is played as the master reads from the Bible and then has sex with the 'handmaid', while his wife is present observing the grotesquely unerotic scene.

The Handmaid's Tale is as much a liberal fantasy as The West Wing was. Moss, incidentally, portrayed President Bartlett's daughter Zoey in that series. The West Wing portrayed a President and presidential team that came as near to heaven on earth as most can imagine. The Handmaid's Tale, on the other hand, is its hellish polar opposite.

So let's return to reality. There are countries where religious fundamentalists are stoning people to death. But none of them are ones where Christians have taken control. Of course you could not have a major network portraying a dystopian future where America has become an Islamic republic. That would be Islamophobic! But Christian fundamentalists are fair game – Christophobic isn't really a term that has caught on yet.

And there are religious cults that do a great deal of harm – including some that profess to be Christian. In an irony that seems to have escaped the maker's notice, Elizabeth Moss, the star of the show, is a committed member of the Church of Scientology – one of the most cultish and harmful religious groups in the Western world. But again of course, Hollywood would not make a series about the evils of Scientology – there are too many well-known celebrities involved and anyway they would be sued.

Neither is this a film series about Trump's America, any more than the book was a commentary on Reagan's America. Ironically, Trump's misogyny, sexism, bad language, sexual immorality, dodgy business practice and opulent lifestyle has more in common with Harvey Weinstein than it does with Billy Graham. The abuse of women that this fantasy series portrays is seen today as much in the increasing number of Hollywood producers and powerbrokers who, after the Weinstein exposé, have themselves been accused, as it is in the religious authority figures who have been found out. The hypocrisy of conservative fundamentalists preaching religious morality while engaging in sexual immorality is matched only by the hypocrisy of liberal fundamentalists preaching woman's rights while engaging in sexual abuse.
The Handmaid's Tale is an ugly series – its sexual explicitness and violence mean that it is out of bounds for anyone with any degree of sensitivity. Unlike The West Wing, which I am now watching for the fourth time, I won't be going near this one again – not just for the ugliness of its sexual violence but also because of the bigotry and anti-Christian hate speech. It is the kind of programme made about Christians that antisemites would make about Jews. It demonises 'the other'. Despite the constant citation of Scripture, the portrayal of Christianity in the drama is the antithesis of what real Christianity is. Real Christianity is not religious hypocrites enforcing their perverted teachings through the barrel of a gun.

Some people say, 'It's only a drama – who cares?' I care. There are those who know nothing about Christianity who when they see this programme will think that this is what it is about. The producers even managed to have a comment at the end: 'If you have been affected by the issues in this programme, call...' as though being part of a religious country run by Christian fundamentalists is a common or likely occurrence.

The Handmaid's Tale is part of a general cultural shift in which Bible-believing Christians are the bogeymen of contemporary society. While in the West we are nowhere near the level of persecution that Christians in many countries face, I'm still not a big fan of encouraging people to hate us on the basis of a distorted and perverse view of the Christian faith.

The way for us to challenge and handle this kind of post-truth alternative-fact fantasy is not to complain, whine and curl up in our Christian snowflake ball. Let's get out there in the real world and be its salt and light – sharing the truth, beauty, love and freedom of Christ. It's not the fear-mongering of The Handmaid's Tale that our world needs, but the Good News of Jesus Christ.

All the guns and armies in the world can’t defy God, and by pushing your absurd “rights” that have harmed women greatly, you are fighting with the Creator. Good luck with your losing battle.

...

So, you fight to vote, and can’t even think critically. Your emotion overwhelms your reason. Besides, 70% of single women vote Democrat, and the majority of married women do too. Without women voting there would be no Democrat party. It’s a nice game of the plutocrats, who weaken the family by discouraging women from getting married and having children. Makes us easy to control. Demography is destiny. While women like you are stubbornly fighting for the right to vote, you are stupidly neglecting your primary function, which is to marry and reproduce. And the bankers are laughing at you, as they make fortunes, and destroy America.

Today’s insane Democrat party is based on women being emotionally manipulated to vote Democrat. You are stupid if you think the Democrat party prior to women getting the vote is anything similar to today’s Democrat party.

Yes, because when women stubbornly divorce men, as 80% of divorces are initiated by women, that leads to single mother households, and angry criminal men, who mistreat women. It’s encouraged by the Government, as they throw welfare at you women to replace your husbands with Daddy Gubmint. Millions of silly women think that’s a great idea. Then they complain about why their children are so dysfunctional.

You can’t name a single movie or television show from 1980 on where a woman married a man and stayed home and had as many children as she could. Why? Because the bankers who control the media know that stable families would end their control. Wake up!

Men like me avoid poisonous women like you like the plague. You are hell to be around.

Anonymous San Antonio Methodist Hospital Patient #conspiracy #pratt abcnews.go.com

"I think I made a mistake. I thought this was a hoax, but it's not."

Those were the final words of a 30-year-old patient who died at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, Texas, this week after attending a so-called "COVID party," according to the hospital's chief medical officer.

Dr. Jane Appleby, chief medical officer for Methodist Hospital and Methodist Children’s Hospital, said in a recorded statement that the unidentified patient told nurses about the party, which she said is hosted by someone diagnosed with coronavirus.

"The thought is people get together to see if the virus is real and if anyone gets infected," Appleby said.

Appleby said she shared the story not to scare people, but to make sure they understand that the virus can affect anyone.
