A Quora Surprise

I never know what to expect on Quora, but I remain curious:

The real reason is going to blow your mind. You might want to finish reading this out of doors so you don’t splatter your kitchen ceiling with brains.


(it’s because Obama didn’t break any laws)

Whoa, right? Get ready for another shocker!


(the right-wing media is lying to you – like, a lot)

And they do it with apparent impunity because y’all never, ever, learn. Let’s work through a couple recent examples, and I’ll show you how it works…

Trump gets caught stealing documents. Right-wing media finds a story about Obama reserving documents for his Presidential Library, which remain in the care of the National Archives and Records Administration. Right-wing narrative: “Obama does the same thing!”

DeSantis’ little stunt goes bad. Right-wing media finds a story about unaccompanied minors being resettled…using airplanes! Right-wing narrative: “Biden does the same thing!”

Let’s say Trump gets caught doing something wrong again. It’s gonna happen. The right-wing media will jump into gear. “Can we find anything remotely similar that Hillary/Obama/Biden did”?

They want something that actually happened. It would be super if they actually also did something illegal, but ok, that’s unlikely. “Just get me what you got!”, I imagine the Fox talking heads yelling at their assistants. They twist the facts to make it seem like a great whataboutism, leaving out key information, then the hordes go online with it. “Well, libs, whatabout this, lulzzz?”

You get spanked by a dose of reality, but then you turn around and go straight back to the poisoned well of disinformation for more. “Ah-ha, what about this? What about that”?

You don’t say, “gee, maybe our guy is doing something bad?” You don’t reflect upon why you’re supporting such a person. You look for a way to deflect from what your guy is doing. Can you see the problem? And, incidentally, nobody is deflected for long. It just takes a quick google search and we can all see it’s a lie. Why can’t you?
