These people (rightwing mobs) have zero class,
zero knowledge, and zero understanding of what they
do. They are brainwashed toadies on a runaway
train to la la land...

If the press omits the party biases and reports the *facts as they present themselves, this might go away.

If your people had a scintilla of shame, this might go away.

Admits he approves of the use of mob violence to get his way.
Victim blaming is the way of the American right.

Just because people believe that 1 + 1 = 2 or 2 + 2 = 4 doesn't mean that they are biased. What it means is that those that don't believe that 1 + 1 = 2 are uneducated or willfully ignorant with a counter factual agenda.

"Admits he approves of the use of mob violence "

Or approval of prison for marauding burning bastich mobs.

What the moron Phester fails to realize is that the supposed "bias" is usually one towards reality.

And the mob he implicitly supports is against the reality they've eschewed for the right wing victim status fantasy land they inhabit.

The only mob members to get prison so far are the 1/6 people.
The rest are forgiven or conveniently ignored.

This is incorrect, free speech is the foundation.

You're wrong again, Russian dupe.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

What planet do you post from? Earth 2.0?

Curious statement considering how many members of a mob that have gone to prison here on Earth 1.0.

"The chickens were bought and paid for.. "

You don't remember stuff too well do you?

No. No chickens were ever "bought and paid" for by Herbert Hoover (who originally made that campaign promise). It never happened as he promised it world.

Where do you get this stuff?

And many do have 2 cars in their garage now but that is also no thanks to republicans. It's more because of the New Deal and WWII.

Republicans are never going to help you get a chicken in your pot (unless you already are wealthy ) or one car in the garage much less two. But they will make sure the oil companies make a healthy profit from your two cars and the HMOs profit from your injuries or illnesses and malnutrition.

And thanks to republicans we will all finally get to see what kind of porn is on Hunter Biden's laptop!! Yay!

How did Hoover get into this? We.. US.. We..bought and paid for our own damn chickens. I remember one poor uncle that made chicken soup a lot. You will howl BS, but he put everything in the soup. Head, wattles, feet etc.

Most had one car back then.. WHY? Because back then the women stayed home and did what they should do. Run the house and kids. Kids got home from school greeted with fresh baked cookies..

Nostalgia is a funny thing

It gets Especially tricky when that nostalgia is for a time that never actually existed
