Anti establishment types often come together briefly.

The trouble is to actually move forward together you have to have a similar idea of what you what the world to be instead not just what you are against.

I actually think MAGA and BLM probably to have some things in common in regards to wanting smaller government, anti government and police interference and spying, etc.

What you outlined is why single-issue voters are so disruptive.

The pro/anti:
1. Gun
2. Abortion
3. PotHead
4. Immigration
5. LGB Alphabet
6. Labor Union

...bunches will put up with literal Hitler/Mao/Pol Pot as long as their button is pushed.

That's not true though.

Unless you're one of those people who think Trump was literally Hitler.

I just had to put a "Rightist" boogeyman in there to balance those other two.

I voted for Trump, and what he said about single issue voters seems very true. I'm not sure how it ties to your comment though. I guess he's saying the BLM and MAGA types had different buttons being pushed?

Remember when an external threat enabled the Wiemar Republic to form by unifying each of the German states?

What if we have a government so bad that it unifies all political movements, because every person, everyone, hates it to the core.

This will be the most unpopular government ever if it can get MAGA, antifa, BLM, anarcho-capitalists, and national socialists to all march together and work with each other.

these blm and antifa screwballs will never be happy.. they are wired to be angry about anything and everything..

if you ask them what they dont want, that includes everything.

if you ask them what they DO want, they dont know.

So the narrative is pushed to lump together patriots with terrorists.

It's anti-vax disinformation (https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/the-waking-times)

Many medical professionals are wary of the vaccine, at least about going first. Here at first they were going to do a lottery for select frontline workers, expecting high demand, but now some places are considering, or are already offering, incentives to take the vaccine.

Not sure the number is growing as the article claims, but it's not anti-vax, it's a healthy respect for all the times big pharma has royally fucked up.

MBFC is literally shit and uses no proof in any of it's decisions. You might as well ask a 7 year old their opinions on things.

[–]socksDemocratic Party 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (14 children)

How can you say that, Nick?

MBFC provides reliable evidence in the 'detailed report' in the link above (https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/the-waking-times/)

Regarding Just the Facts Daily, see the detailed report here: https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/just-facts-daily/

Wow using MBFC to fact check the site that's fact checking them.this is like a mirror in a mirror in a mirror.

MBFC is notoriously biased and wrong.

[–]socksDemocratic Party 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (12 children)

Not to keep bothering you, Nick, but I can find no evidence of this: "MBFC is notoriously biased and wrong."

No need to be Evil, Nick

(It doesn't hide the fact that do not have reliable evidence).

Not my job to help you with your argument and supposed evidence, if it exists (I looked, out of respect for the discussion; was curious; nevermind)

Oh yes, the glaringly obvious trillion dollar funded anti vax propaganda machine intentionally spreading disinfo by trying to manipulate people into questioning the ethics, integrity and honesty of Pharmaceutical mega corporations.

Maga are the terrorists and BLM are the patriots.

[–]Mastermustard 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (12 children)

BLM are working for Jewish international finance, MAGA are just confused boomers.

[–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (11 children)

And the cops are also paid by the Jews to set up a rational for BLM protests?

[–]Mastermustard 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (10 children)

Cops answer to the mayors, the DA, and higher political offices which are in the pockets of oligarchs and billionaire jews. The US isn't mexico yet, I doubt there are that many beat cops taking bribes, they're just following orders from up above.

So the cop who killed george floyd was ordered to by a Jew?

[–]Mastermustard 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

George Floyd overdosed on fentanyl and meth. He had lethal levels in his system and would have died whether he encountered the police or not.

[–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Nope. He tested positive for covid. He died from covid.

    No. I don't know how far the conspiracy goes. Apparently there was also election fraud and masks are meant to suffocate people. Its not my fault that you buy into some stupid conspiracies but not others.

      Dense? Really? The only thing masks do is lower R_0 for a virus with a mortality rate around 2%. Maybe I am dense. But at least of have enough goddamn sense to wear a fucking mask. 20 years from now, if you have grandkids, you will tell them that libtards prevented common sense folk like yourself from wearing masks. So if I am dense, what does that make you? Mother fucker.

          Always consider your sources - along with the information - Honest-_-Rabbi.

          No need for insults.

          If you have something to say - other than your dislike of fact-checking websites - say it.
