It's becoming weird to watch individuals with a talent for reading prepared texts. :dohdohdoh:

Reminded me of mathematician Eric Weinstein's "Four Quadrant Model"

https://everipedia.org/wiki/lang_en/four-quadrant-model-eric-weinstein/

"The Four Quadrant Model is a tool used to examine how the media upholds the status quo by stigmatizing people who hold views that challenge it and portray them as prejudiced or intolerant. […] Once the pattern is seen, however, it cannot be unseen, […] realizing that you have been repeatedly controlled by a single trick tying your virtue to a thwarting of your own interests"

Yeah, that describes it. The last time I checked, wasn't Anderson Cooper supposed to be one of those 1-2 guys that each network has that exemplifies integrity in journalism?

Broken link above, I meant the one where Trump pardons black beard. (April 1st)

We've all known that Joe Biden is a touchy-feely guy. I've seen the videos for years. It could be far worse, but if it was my daughter I'd have an entirely different opinion on it. The real question is why now? The media just turned Biden from everyone's favorite uncle to a pervert in a day.

Stacey Abrams again claims she won Georgia governor’s race: ‘I’m not' a good sport
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/stacey-abrams-again-claims-she-won-georgia-governors-race-im-not-a-good-sport

Some good quotes -

"I'm here to tell you a secret that makes Breitbart and [Fox News host] Tucker Carlson go crazy: We won,” Abrams said, according to The Houston Chronicle. “I am not delusional. I know I am not the governor of Georgia -- possibly yet."  :dohdohdoh:

"we don’t have to concede elections anymore, because when we concede, we are condoning systems that are used to oppress us."  :dohdohdoh:

"I did win my election. I just didn't get to have the job."  :dohdohdoh:

There are plenty of hate groups out there, but for some reason Antifa seems to annoy me the most.
Antifa likes to hide their faces and always attacks soft targets and when they have much larger numbers.
I would love to see the police come in strong and take a bunch of these guys in. 
I wonder how many of these tuff guys still live with their parents.
