Isn't it funny how some think trump supporters are the most feeble-minded creatures on this planet yet also think they're masterminds behind a sophisticated rebellion?

Goes back to quadz's point about literally vs seriously.

Me and my old lady were yelling at each other about it last night (yelling in agreement, we're like that *shrugs*) that ALL SUMMER LONG you had people burning cop cars, throwing explosives at cops, taking over courthouses and police precincts, terrorizing neighborhoods... and they were just "protestors". But the people who gathered on the steps of the capital building were VIOLENT INSURRECTIONISTS!!! ...who I guess would've continued "insurrecting" but... ya know... eh... it got to be about 6pm, ...it was getting dark, ....they looked at each other and said, "Geez, I'm tired.", so they went home and the violent insurrection and overthrow of the government just kinda piddled out, I guess.

Some of them were spraying pepper spray at cops, one guy had fucking zip ties so he could handcuff members of Congress or perhaps use them to secure doors against police intervention. I have no problem calling those people "rioters" just like I had no problem calling them rioters all summer long once they stayed out past curfew and actively resisted police efforts to secure the streets and protect property. The girl who was shot, as horrible as it was, it was her own fault. She had to be able to see and hear the guy pointing a gun at her, and she continued advancing through the window. She got handled.

Seems legit. Re-educate the children of trump supporters in camps. It's comforting to know my tax dollars paid this guy's salary.

What does "believing" have to do with it? They explain why it's so low. It's not about "belief"; you either understand what they're saying or you don't.

It's why I posted the first link:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2020/04/30/fact-check-cdc-still-tracking-flu-deaths-2019-20-typical/3044888001/


..to demonstrate how wrong and biased MSM was all the while pointing at 'statistics'. MSM went from 'people who say flu numbers are at an all-time low are spewing misinformation' to 'THIS is why flu numbers are at an all-time low.'

Somehow candace Owen's was more informed on this one than the party of science.

Somehow candace Owen's was more informed on this one than the party of science.

Is that what they were saying? The title says the "CDC has not stopped reporting flu deaths". Owen's Tweet stated: "the CDC has abruptly decided to stop calculating flu deaths altogether".

Geez, perhaps this is why you guys hate on "fact checking" sites and articles so much because you don't even read and/or understand the claims they are addressing:

"We rate the claim that the CDC has stopped reporting flu deaths because the death rates are so low as FALSE because it is not supported by our research. The CDC continues to report weekly on the 2020 influenza season."

Simply stating that flu deaths were at an all time low would not have been an issue, but that's not what Owen did.

One more thing: I believe the first article is talking about the 2019-2020 flu season, and the second article is talking about the 2020-2021 flu season. Different flu seasons so it makes sense that they wouldn't talk about them identically (not to mention the fact that they're different news agencies/organizations).

From the second, newer article:

"Flu activity, or incidence of flu cases, in November 2020 was approximately 91% lower than in November 2019, according to the data."

November 2019 would have been part of the 2019-2020 flu season, which is what they would have been talking about in April 2020 (the date of the first article).

From the first, older article:

"This year’s total will continue to rise as the U.S. enters the 2020-2021 flu season in October [Remember, this article was first published in late April 2020], but it’s unlikely that increase will be significant since the majority of annual flu seasons decrease at the beginning of each year."

FACT CHECK: The article above is satire.

I think in the interest of factual accuracy, the admin should temporarily suspend your posting privs until Trump is out of office.

The coroner, Brenda Bock, says two of their five deaths related to COVID-19 were people who died of gunshot wounds.

“these two people had tested positive for COVID but that’s not what killed them,” she said. “The gunshot wound killed them.”
