FakeNews Ongoing

Post by corplinx » Wed Feb 01, 2017 2:58 am

For FakeNews you see online. This week I've seen hoaxes about Trump passing anti-gay executive orders, trump revoking rights from legal immigrants, and even a coup d'etat hoax. (also, apparently there are rallies full of dipshits who believed FakeNews about a muslim ban)

I got into an argument with some idiots on DJ's Facebook who insist that only outright hoaxes are FakeNews and that stories like "None of Muslim Ban Countries have Trump Hotels" from NPC isn't. Well, fuck them. Nobody is reading dipshit hoaxes from "conservrus" or some unknown other site. But I've seen the NPR story used to mislead people all over with "SEE, HE DIDNT BAN SAUDI ARABIA BECUZ HE HAS HOTEL THERE!?!?!"

FakeNews is FakeNews. Sorry to make you cry.

First entry, Top Secret FakeNews!

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/seal- ... ry-n714346
In what an official said was the first military raid carried out under President Donald Trump, two Americans were killed in Yemen on Sunday — one a member of SEAL Team 6 and the other the 8-year-old daughter of Anwar al-Awlaki, the New Mexico-born al Qaeda leader who himself was killed in a U.S. strike five years ago.

The raid in southern Yemen, conducted by the supersecret Joint Special Operations Command, was intended to capture valuable intelligence, specifically computer equipment, according to a senior U.S. military official. Three al Qaeda leaders were killed, according to U.S. officials.

Contrary to earlier reporting, the senior military official said, the raid was Trump's first clandestine strike — not a holdover mission approved by President Barack Obama. The mission involved "boots on the ground" at an al Qaeda camp near al Bayda in south central Yemen, the official said.

"Almost everything went wrong," the official said.
Oh gee, an unnamed official who confirms bias, tells the failure story they want to hear, and is trusted with classified information on clandestine ops but leaks it to NBC news? DEFINITELY NOT FAKE

The important thing is the civilians died from boots on the ground and not from an evil drone.

Found on DJ Groethe's FB reshared uncritically:

http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/31/politics/ ... d=33993184

CNN FakeNews Headline:
"European Union president trashes Trump as 'threat'"

I had to go find the actual letter from EU president Tusk.
The first threat, an external one, is related to the new geopolitical situation in the world and around Europe. An increasingly, let us call it, assertive China, especially on the seas, Russia's aggressive policy towards Ukraine and its neighbours, wars, terror and anarchy in the Middle East and in Africa, with radical Islam playing a major role, as well as worrying declarations by the new American administration all make our future highly unpredictable.
I'll stop calling it FakeNews when they stop Faking News.

The coup thing took off quickly from multiple media outlets. It's almost like they got marching orders. :-)

Or they are unoriginal idiots.

It's not a coup when you win the election and invite a guy to a meeting.

Yet without irony these unoriginal idiots are proposing a coup against Trump.

Tim Kaine: What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now there’s the momentum to be able to do this.

Media: Coup coup coup coup coup

Dems on Social Media: resist resist resist resist


Could you imagine if Hillary had won and butthurt Trumpers were doing this? "SEDITIOUS HICKS CALL FOR VIOLENT REVOLUTION"

Instead the media is an enabler....

Meh, the media could not stop Trump and they have less power now. This is an echo chamber getting louder but they are accomplishing nothing. I know it's anecdotal but going by social media feed I'm already seeing cracks as breaking news fatigue sets in. Unless Trump goes ahead on something blatantly unconstitutional or unpopular, I just don't see this continuing past February.

Another "the gay ban is coming" FakeNews.

The "leaked document" could actually exist as in "Ted Cruz has been trying to get someone to read this for weeks" but you will notice they give no context as to whether the administratrion is the source or if it's simply being floated up by religious reich.

Could be true, but has at least three fake red flags.

TRUTH [Tm.--Ed.] Trumps FAKE!!1!!

Evidences:
President Donald Trump intends to maintain an Obama-era executive order aimed at protecting gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender federal workers and contractors from workplace discrimination, the White House said Tuesday.

Trump “is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community,” according to the statement.

The statement was issued after reports Monday on news websites and social media that a draft order was circulating in Washington which would have repealed action taken in 2014 by then-President Barack Obama that applied to all federal agencies as well as to 24,000 companies with federal contracts that employ 28 million people, a fifth of the U.S. workforce.

Protections on the basis of sexual orientation for federal employees were already in place when Obama expanded them to include gender identity and to also require all federal contractors to have policies barring discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. He chose not to include an exemption for employers affiliated with religious groups, something that Trump could still decide to add.

The reports on Monday also suggested that the Trump administration was considering an order that would have allowed federal employees to refuse to serve LGBT people; given federally funded adoption agencies the option of discriminating against LGBT parents; and allowed taxpayer funds to go toward social services programs that discriminate against LGBT people.

So... Some people seem to be out of the loop on this. Milo offends people, but he doesn't actually do hate speech. Most people have just heard triggered SJWs claim he makes hate speeches. One of the targets in his banter, is white supremacists. Being a gay jew, he's not a fan of neo-nazis.

FakeNews double down.
