    From Tucker Carlson...
    The crack political team over at The Washington Post has uncovered a brand new species of fake news they think you need to know about: Imaginary left-wing mobs.

    In a piece posted this week, The Post explained that in order to win the midterm elections, those Republicans have "cast the Trump resistance movement as an angry mob."

    Now, “cast” is ,of course, used here as a synonym for misrepresented. The Washington Post wants you to know that these mobs are not real. They're an illusion.

    That may surprise you, because you may have recently seen videos of prominent Republicans being chased out of restaurants by screaming progressives. You may have even read news accounts about how a Republican congressman named Steve Scalise was shot with a high-powered rifle by a Bernie Sanders supporter.

    You may have seen college campuses descend into rioting simply because conservatives showed up to talk.

    And just this past weekend, you may have watched transfixed as groups of hysterical young people yelled at Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill and then pounded in rage on the front doors of the Supreme Court.

    All of this may have given you the mistaken impression that there is a threat of disorder and lawlessness from the left building in this country, some of it funded by a man that The Washington Post neutrally describes as “philanthropist” George Soros.

    Well, rest easy, says The Post. In fact, all of this talk of left-wing mobs "taps grievances about the nation's fast-moving cultural and demographic shifts." In other words, this is racism, and it's designed says, The Post, "for the benefit of white voters, particularly men."

    Wow, so the angry left-wing mobs you thought you had been watching on television turn out to be merely a hallucination. They're a fever dream concocted by those diabolical magicians over at Fox News.

    Thank heaven, you can wake up now. None of it is real. -- It's 1996 again.

    Michael Savage wrote a book some years back titled "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder". I'm not a fan of his, but he sure was on to something.

    I have said it numerous times but it cannot be said enough. The Democrat media establishment makes the old Soviet official government media, Pravda, seem like neutral observers. This is propaganda at its finest.

    None of this would be possible without a complicit media. The leftist media ignores Uranium One, the Comey non-investigation into Hillary's e-mail server, the FISA court abuse and spying on political opponents, while promulgating Mueller's investigation into Donald Trump's campaign for collusion with Russia.

    The media spent 90% of their coverage of Kavanaugh talking about Susan Ford and her allegations of assault, never once questioning the veracity of her claims, her complete lack of witnesses, her erasing her social media (which was far left / anti-Trump) or her Democratic operative lawyers. It was all about making her believable and painting Kavanaugh as a drunken sexual predator.

    Well that’s a relief. Now I can give all those imaginary mobsters a dirt nap and since they are a figment of my imagination I’ll never have to worry about those unbiased media types trying to crucify me.

    This is the most blatant "Jedi Mind Trick" ever attempted. Don't believe your lying eyes!

    Who are we to define what a mob is?
    Mobs are like pornography. I can't define it, but I know one when I see one?
    What kind of person joins a mob and then gets offended when you call it a mob?
    Maybe we should have called it a spelling bee?
    "A sewing circle" was clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court.

    The libs are so stupid that they think others would buy this crap, like they always do. Liberals treat everyone as though they are stupid because this ideology works on all of it's members. -They have no historical memory. They routinely swear to non-facts until finally (because of stupidity) it becomes reality for them. THEN, they use the non-facts as precedent. This is group-insanity!

    I watched that last night and was literally shaking my head. How stupid do these morons think people are? Proof is highly evident and easily obtained. Why would I, or anybody, believe a media source telling me the exact opposite of what I am WATCHING HAPPEN is true? God help me!!!

    They know the right doesn’t pay attention to them. These articles are meant for their left wing readers and viewers. There is a lot of “liberal” people who are becoming disillusioned with their party. The real violence they see from their side doesn’t help. These articles are to “gather the herd” and sway their own into the belief that this violence is not taking place.

    The media is only pandering to those that think via their emotions!

    Anyone with a brain capable of logic are repulsed by these types of made up stories.

    To them it's is ok to project their feelings on others because they can't think and can only express emotions, not logic.

    Someone said that CNN would be bankrupt without Trump.
    They need a villain to remain viable.

    This is an old ploy. When you have committed an act Treason move swiftly. Blame the crime on your opposition. Make claims regarding your honesty and Patriotism.
    The Democrats are finally coming out. They are backing many of the Socialist Party members. They are supported by the leading Universities, Hollywood and the Media.
    We can only hope the coming revolution is bloodless. But if not, it ends quickly. :drillsgt:

    No victim, no crime. Shouldn't cause any trouble if an imaginary rioting Antifa scum gets shot in self-defense.
