Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 21, 2020

Nothing will convince Fryar and many others here in Sundown - including the town's mayor, another Patriots member - that Democrat Joe Biden won the Nov. 3 presidential election fairly. They believe Trump's stream of election-fraud allegations and say they're preparing for the possibility of a "civil war" with the American political left.

"If President Trump comes out and says: 'Guys, I have irrefutable proof of fraud, the courts won't listen, and I'm now calling on Americans to take up arms,' we would go," said Fryar, wearing a button-down shirt, pressed slacks and a paisley tie during a recent interview at his office.

It's a cult. These people are disconnected from reality.

The question on my mind is...

What needs to be done, how can these Americans be convinced to change their mind and stop following the, as Ms Conway called them, alternate facts.

The cited article is a symptom. A symptom of a deep division that will eventually tear apart the United States if the current trajectory continues.

For a start, how do we break the filter bubble?

...Ever wondered why 2 people can search for the same thing online and get 2 totally different results? The answer is online echo chambers and digital filter bubbles -- social media and search engines that skew our access to information and algorithms that artificially promote content they think should suit us. Those invisible chains shrink our freedom to learn and be confronted with new ideas. ...

From the article:
'Asked whether Trump might be duping his followers, he said it's hard to fathom.
"If I'm being manipulated by Trump ... then he is the greatest con man that ever lived in America," Caleb Fryar said. "I think he's the greatest patriot that ever lived."'

Spoiler alert Caleb! ......

"If President Trump comes out and says: 'Guys, I have irrefutable proof of fraud, the courts won't listen, and I'm now calling on Americans to take up arms,' we would go,"

This could be the way to solve the cultist problem. Deep fake a Trump request to attack various seats of government. Tip off the national guard. Set up cameras on pay per view.

@#8 ... Set up cameras on pay per view. ...

Interesting approach... appeal simultaneously to reality TV folk and the Capitalists.

But wow, the cited article is surreal is what it describes.

Just wow....

Because their only concern is power and control. Now that the lying and games have become ineffective the mask is off and it's down to power plays and overt cheating.

Wait until they get in the house. You have a stronger case if they are genuinely a home invader.

The answer is close the end of the article. But Trump is never going to do it.

"In Sundown, Texas, Mayor Jonathan Strickland said there's "no way in hell" Biden won fairly. The only way he'll believe it, he said, is if Trump himself says so."

When they have this much faith in their prophet, then only said prophet can change their minds. This IS a cult.

It's moments like these where the interviewer needs to ask something like "would you run around naked barking like a dog if he told you to"?

Who cares what butt hurt Trumpers are saying.

If they wanna go shooting off their guns. Let them. That's what prison and the death penalty are for.

There are plenty of Democrats who never accepted Trump as their legitimate president either

But we didn't threaten civil war.

Any normal President would be trying to calm down his supporters but then, we know, Donald Trump is not normal.

Is this a lot different than those who say Gore really won, or that Hillary really got 6 billion more votes?

The electoral voters elected Trump, not the popular vote. They, their donors, lobbyists and other money witches and the enabling staff are to blame.

So much butthurt.

Apparently they don't think Biden is white.

"When they have this much faith in their prophet, then only said prophet can change their minds. This IS a cult."

Well said and very profound.

Cultists, weekend warriors, survivalists and barstool generals have been around for eons. They consider themselves free thinkers ~~ as they're being led by the nose to do the dirty work of people like Donald Trump, Jim Jones, Marshall Applewhite (Heaven's Gate), David Koresh (Camp Davidian), Jim Jones. Christian Science and Charles Mansion to name only a few.

Not to mention every evangelist on cheap late night TV.

If you remember Trump's 2016 campaign it wasn't very hard to sell his schtick. He gave them an enemy to hate. Somebody to blame. He gave them a drumbeat. And they marched right over the cliff like good little lemmings.

I still find it hard to believe that there are so many people THAT stupid. However, as we often say around here., facts are facts.
