    Great link. Basically an essay on Internet trolling and the reductio ad absurdum fallacy. Faux News does this stuff all the time, like when they produced an hour-long special on one guy who bought sushi with food stamps.

    Trump doesn’t need your fancy fallacies. He just straight-up lies. Kellyanne Conway said we need the Muslim Ban, which cancelled thousands of visas of people who did nothing wrong, because of the “Bowling Green Massacre.” Which she made up. Now Trump supporters are accusing the media of a massive cover up of this nonexistent crime.

    Great article!

    I love this one which could pertain to democrats:

    Find an example of a successful member of the disadvantaged group and exaggerate their power.

    George Soros.

    I get so tired of hearing about Soros, I could slit my wrists. I know almost nothing about him and don’t want to.

    This Berkeley UC “riot” looks like a total setup to me. How convenient that all these violent protesters wear masks, and the police just don’t seem to be able to catch them so we can know who they really are.

    I’m with Robert Reich: Something stinks!

    If we don’t get a handle on reality in America, we’re sunk. You can’t govern by making the presidency a fake wrestling match. There’s nothing funny about this.

    And here we are; once again praying that the Republicans will somehow become moral enough to save us. Don’t hold your breath though. They are acting like kids in the candy store.

      Chris Matthews said they were “anarchists” but I think it’s just a label he made up.
