Redirecting the message against Trump and the Republicans.

Lol, so who do we have to talk to? Because, it still seems like the messaging is off, or maybe it is just to me (always a possibility😁 .

It just seems to me that there are so many topics being hijacked by the Herr Strümpf, and his cult of personality.

It seems odd to me that even a older story like Patt Tillman which now keeps coming up because of the NFL's anthem fauxrage. They treat him and his story like it's something honorable and revered, which HAS ALWAYS BLOWN MY MIND!

His story is a tragedy, a friendly fire incident that they tried to cover up and make into a puff piece bullshit patriotism story. I keep seeing the memes that have him kneeling and some BS meme with him and Kaepernick.

Kaepernick, how long has he been left out to hang by himself? Thankfully he is and will be known for what he really did in tomorrow's history books. Why arent these people being told that if you have a problem with a black man kneeling to try and bring to light the systemic racism. That if they have a problem with that, they are lumping themselves in with the actual KKK. I posted a pic a few days ago of a guys pickup lynching a football, with patriotic slogans plastered over his truck.

The hijacking of the word snowflake was fantastic, I hardly ever see it used and if it is, the very next comment is a picture of an avalanche.

The next phrase that needs to be taken over, is Trump Derangment Syndrome. We are not suffering from some rare derangement syndrome because we are laser locked on trump. Anyone that is a follower of Trump are the actual ones suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. They are completely unable to see what he is doing to this country. They are all suffering from a mass psychosis in their denials, and stories, when it comes to Trump.

Why, is it in this country that mental health care is next to impossible to get and E V E R Y DAMN TIME there is a shooting, it's always blamed on bad mental health? If and when you do get some, your in a room for 30 minutes and come out with a dozen different prescriptions for mind altering drugs that the side effects have only been scratched the surface of, unless you're lucky enough to be able to afford Dr Katz and his $1200 an hour rate at the Hamptons(actually not sure of his rate, nor do I know Dr. Katz😂

The messaging against Trump and his ilk are being treated with baby talk. I see as like, "so and so voted with Trump %99 of the time...oooh scary
No! Trump signed into law a tax bill that increases our debt while giving his swamp buddies a HUGE TAX BREAK! Then he has the audacity to say that the we cant afford a cost of living increase for .Gov workers. Then over the weekend, he gets a full face of well deserved blowback, and then tries to make it look like he is gonna fix that problem
One that he created himself. Why is it that we have the funniest damn comedians, yet a pathetic message? It's very frustrating.

Why is this a thing?!

I mean it literally could be a multitude of things. From a normal hand position posed for a picture, the dick game (which was a military favorite) to live long and prosper whoever, whatever, I dont know!

So while people are expending resources, scouring the internet to oust these white power photos. Or looking ridiculous accusing them of it, it was just as ridiculous as trying to defend a false internet meme that the LGBTQ community was wanting to accept pedos into the fold (which was later proven false).

This should be the message to this shit, if there even has to be one. You lay down with racists, dont expect suprised when you get lumped into with them.

If a black man kneeling during the anthem is somehow pissing you off, congratulations. You have something similar with the Klan.

Trump derangement syndrome

I'm sure we have all heard the term. At one time it kind of pissed me off that somebody would claim that about me, of course it would, who wouldnt it?

They say insanity is doing something over and over and over again, expecting a different result.

Everytime something comes from Trump, like a claim that Obama is a Muslim, or his kids post a disgusting tweet, maybe his administration says something incredibly racist like, "there are bad on both sides".Of course that is going to enrage a normal person. They are expecting a normal human, or president to do differently. But time and time again, we are served a nice plate of Trump. Why wouldnt this make me pissed, enraged, etc.

That's what is happening right now. Normal people are being driven insane by a litteral cartoon president.

Fake news and its implications

With everything going on these days online it's becoming harder and harder to to truly know if something is real or not.

Take for instance the latest attempt by Russian trolls/agents/whoever. It started in the depths of 4chan. They started the rumor that the LGBTQ community was accepting pedos with welcome arms. Then blasted to all there fake twitter accounts to the point that it was trending on twitter. Of course "somebody" is going out this on their website for clicks, and then the next thing you know FOX news is reporting that it's a fact.

This has cascading effects. First of all, now all of a sudden the LGBTQ community has to refute this ridiculous claim. Then people on the right, now say "look look! They love pedos!"

Interesting and scary times we live in.
