But seriously. .. "globalist" is 'code'? What next? "are you looking for 'someone with experience in the financial sector'?" (Wink, wink, nudge- nudge... ).

Jeesus, talk about projecting idiotic fixations onto the other side. They just don't see that throwing mud at a mirror looks dum.

Who says a globalist can't be a Jew hater?

Oh the irony of the commentators on DailyKos trashing Fox and Sinclair for being partisan, they really don't see the hypocrisy.

Still not as laughable as a certain "fit to print" publication.

The Daily Fail busted.

Daily Mail Confuses Trudeau With Pic Of Man In Drag
The Daily Caller
A New York writer went on the record correcting a Daily Mail story that purported to show a picture of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in drag.

On Friday, Brian Gresko tweeted:
  • Hey @tomleonard78, this is not @JustinTrudeau this is me at Oberlin College’s Drag Ball in the late 90’s. The photo was published on @GoodMenProject in a piece I wrote about dressing in women’s clothing in college. Why did you lie? Take this down immediately! pic.twitter.com/Kvwx685aih

    — Brian Gresko (@briangresko) March 9, 2018
...

The Daily Mail removed the picture from its story.

The British online tabloid was doing a critical piece on Trudeau, documenting how the flashy and sometimes outlandish leader saw his popularity plummet after a disastrous visit to India.

...
Benefit of the doubt. Honest mistake not fake news.

Not guilty by reason of incompetence. :lmao:

From the Guardian :

"How video games are fuelling the rise of the far right"

"rightwing ideologies have been overrepresented and dominant throughout the history of video games. Although affected by context, video games have long focused on the expulsion of “aliens” (Space Invaders to XCOM), fear of impure infection (Half-Life to The Last of Us), border control (Missile Commander to Plants vs Zombies), territory acquisition (Command & Conquerto Splatoon), empire building (Civilization toTropico), princess recovery (Mario to Zelda), and restoration of natural harmony (Sonic to FarmVille)."

What about stealing the Amulet of Yendor and sacrificing it to your god?

Is that right wing too? :BigGrin3:

It's laying the ideological groundwork for government censorship of games.

Illogical arguments are better than logical ones, because of who will be making the decision.

I think video games, having the characteristics described, do not drive ideological thinking, but are a reflection of wish fulfillment that ideologies try to tap into to make movements. The game itself is just a manifestation of what people like, it isn't part of a chain of cause and effect.

It is a satisfying environment: you are powerful, you can easily tell who your enemies are, and (at least in player vs. computer/PVE situations) you generally have an advantage. That is fun!
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

You have been conditioned to think that a relationship with unequal power dynamics and opportunities is fun.

When the FakeNews gets really lazy, they just lazily label anything they want to declare verboten as "alt right" or "far right" or claims links to.

Sargon can debate Richard Spencer (and he did) and they will still label him "alt right".

Want to censor video games? Something something far right!

The whole business of serious debate (as opposed to the college sport of team debate) is now labelled "far right", no matter who does it.

Games, novels, plays, movies reflect the resolution of conflict in the most visceral, satisfying way: Thru violence.
They always have. Could someone reference a contemporary work of the Iliad that talks about chats on equal rights for Nubians?.. Thought not.

If negation and conversation were interesting, CSPAN would be the size of Disney. That is the sniff test.

Sometimes you need to read past the headlines.

The report also noted that based on its investigation which lasted more than a year, the committee disagreed with the intelligence community’s assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin had a “supposed preference” for then-candidate Donald Trump.

“We disagree with the Intelligence Community’s position that Putin favored Trump,” Conaway told Fox News. He said he had “no contact” with the White House during the probe.
