CNN scared of new right-wing media, bashes Parler as ‘threat to democracy’

Brian Stelter — two parts potato, one part experimental estrogen replacement therapy gone tragically wrong — is worried about you poor, slobbering rubes, and what you might be allowed to read.

“People are going more and more into their own echo chambers, more and more into their own bubbles, especially Trump voters,” Brian Stelter recently lamented on CNN.

“There’s this new social media app called Parler getting a lot of attention, because conservatives are leaving, saying they’re leaving Twitter and Facebook, going off to Parler, because they believe Parler is a safer space for them. What we’re seeing is even more of a bunker mentality in right-wing media. And ultimately that’s not good for the country.”

Well, we can’t have the rubes out there deciding for themselves where to interact with other, like-minded people.  Our betters don’t like it!

Now that that’s all out in the open…

On To the Links!

Fuck off, slaver!

Fuck off, slaver, Part Deux!


President Trump may go all Grover Cleveland in 2024.

Before then, the GOP may see some good news in 2022.

I’m not even going to pretend I understand half of this, but it’s kind of cool.

“To be frank, the paper is crap that should not have passed any competent peer review,” Zeke Hausfather, a climate scientist and energy systems analyst, said.

The rise of Parler.

Well, pitter patter, let’s get at ‘er.

Knifefish really, really suck.

The Devil went down to Georgia.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

I LOL’d:

What’s the minimum wage for robots?

This may be the saddest thing ever.

This Week’s Idiots:

Paul Krugman is still a hack, and an idiot.

Salon’s Amanda Marcotte is an idiot.

CNN’s Jim Acosta is still an idiot.

The Atlantic’s Annie Lowrey is an idiot.

Appointing the daffy old Bolshevik from Vermont as Labor Secretary has to be one of the most idiotic ideas I’ve heard of in a long damn time.

And So:

For this week’s musical selection, let’s focus on percussion.  The history of rock & roll is full of great musicians.  There are great vocalists, lead guitarists, bass players, keyboards, you name it.  But when it comes to drummers, I can only offer four words:  Neil Peart stands alone.  Here is Rush and their hit YYZ, featuring the Neil Peart cam, from a live performance in Rio.  Enjoy.
