Newly elected PM Giorgia Meloni is definitely on the “Right” of the political spectrum. For various reasons, the left has labeled her a “fascist”. Presiident Biden piled in, issuing a statement that the freely and democratically elected PM is, in fact, demonstration of “anti-democracy”. I don’t understand this – isn’t a democratically elected official, even if we disagree with them, still an act of democracy? Bear in mind, I am a brain injured idiot and may be my brain is easily confused.
Yet another Covid superspreader forecast, this time made after the event, turns out to be full of hot air. All of them have been wrong but the media never, ever goes back and looks at all the failed forecasts. The result is no one trusts the media or public health anymore.
Reporter asserts all Covid deaths in the U.S. were preventable. My pointing out that Covid was not controlled anywhere in the world (having accurate data collection and reporting), and my pointing out that 27 other countries had worse outcomes than the U.S. is “denying that the deaths were preventable”. Therefore, you are cautioned that my inconvenient questions and observations are official disinformation, as determined by the Associated Press. Also, remember Betteridge’s Law – any headline that ends in a question mark means the story is bull shit.
Russian officials denounce the West while simultaneously sending their kids to universities and jet set lifestyles in Europe and the U.S. They pretend to believe their own propaganda that the West is evil.
“Fact Checks” pretend to resolve social media memes that go against the authoritative conventional wisdom. Under the guise of sounding official, the “Fact checks” are often little more than propaganda messaging masquerading as official information. Fact checks have become a new form of propaganda.
I ran across this while looking up data on international travel and was stunned to see the logical fallacy used by the author of this piece. The entire thesis of this linked article is fake, based on a faulty premise.
A “report” by an advocacy group opposes “vaccine nationalism” and says we need “a massive course correction” on vaccine distribution by redirecting “excess rich-country doses” to “poorer countries”. But they pulled a little trick in their description – twisting the facts.
The ease of posting on social media results in people posting embarrassing, dumb things they will come to later regret.
Since 90% of people who get Covid-19 wore a face mask where required, does this mean face masks cause you to get Covid-19? That makes as much logical sense as the idiotic media meme that “someone who opposed face masks now has Covid-19”.
Blast from the past: the social media propaganda poster that led to the birth of this blog and web site.
