It is obvious from here that they are actively pulling the progressive line. Blatantly shutting down any opposition to their narrative. These sources tell twisted truths in many cases and definitely take sides. A telatell sign is when you find no opposing view from any major source. It doesn't mean that everyone agrees on the issue - that is always an unlikely possibility in politics and history.neverfail wrote: ↑Thu Jul 30, 2020 2:40 pmYour first fallacy is to presume that the Democrats Party of the United States is "left wing" - as in left wing Marxist-Leninist. As far as I am concerned; as one half of the two party duopoly of political power over there there is absolutely no idealogocal difference between the Democrats and Republicans - only some occasional differences in policy.
I have made a Google enquiry on the topic: Have some city mayors in the United States ordered police to stand aside and permit rioting? . The responses I got make no mention of this but repeatedly note instances of police brutality.
Typical was this Wikipedia assessment:
The protests spread to over 2,000 cities and towns in all 50 states and all 5 permanently-inhabited territories, as well as in over 60 other countries, with demonstrators supporting those seeking justice for Floyd and the wider Black Lives Matter movement, and speaking out against police brutality. Many cities have seen continuous protests since Floyd's killing; New York City had seen 21 consecutive days of protests as of June 17, 2020. The vast majority of demonstrations have been peaceful, but some large cities saw large scale rioting, looting, and burning of businesses and police cars. There were also many instances of police brutality. The wave of protests and unrest has been compared to the long, hot summer of 1967 and the King assassination riots, both of which saw riots in over a hundred cities across the United States.
In black ghettos throughout the United States I believe that police are almost universally regarded as "the enemy" - not as upholders of justice. Consequently, police tactics, even their mere presence, can be counterproductive in that it inflames yet more fury among protestors. . As before the 1968 riots the rage has been building up in that quarter for decades and with the killing of George Floyd as trigger has finally boiled over.
Nothing to do with socialism at all.
If you are sincere about what you publish Cassowary then beware: because it is you who are living in cloud cuckoo land advocating a lie.
With blatantly biased and partisan MSM and big tech "truths" are often misrepresented or brazenly substituted for outright lies.
Party affiliates often misrepresent their positions to placate everyone.
Science is politicized such that research is channeled by fame and politics rather than facts and valid test protocols. (Selecting conditions that are certain to deliver the desired results even though not addressing the relevant questions).
Those should be enough to illustrate the point.
