If Twitter is actually just a platform
Twitter is a private company and can do anything it wants with its product. You (and the president) are free not to use it if you're convinced it has a bias against you.
I dont need Twitter fact checking things to imply that they are false.
Right-wingers don't need fact-checking because it hurts their feelings, we get it.
Can you see how this would increase the fraud chances?
And yet facts prove it never has increased to anything remotely close to a "substantial" amount. Around 2000 cases between 2001 and 2011. That's what, 0.01%? Even less?

There actually is.
Oh there are indeed some instances of postal voting frauds...mostly commited by republicans. But the rates are still extremely low and do not warrant any of the hyperbolic vocabulary and imagery Trump is using.
to not allow them to censor others
Putting links to actual facts under a person' tweet is not "censoring".
false and biased "fact checks" to statements they dont like.
The fact checks are only "false and biased" because you don't like them.

Why do you want to censor Twitter and abolish the first amendment?

No, there isn't.

of course they were triple that, that’s stupid to think otherwise.
And yet the two only presidents of the past 30 years that have successfully reduced USA's deficit are both Democrats. Clinton even managed to get it to a surplus. Isn't that fascinating?

who is one of the fact checkers? CNN.
Fortunately they included several different sources for the fact-checking, so people can still ignore those they don't want to read.

For you, but that’s ok.
No, not "for me". Your answers are extremely vague when I'm asking you for very specific things. You call a man "crazy" and claim to have read his books. Prove it by explaining the thought process that made you believe that. Otherwise you have no credibility. Have you really read 4 of his books?
I have a fundamental problem with Anarchists
Noam Chomsky isn't really an anarchist, except in the eyes of the right-wing media that never read anything he's written. What exactly in "Requiem for the American dream" did he make you think he was an anarchist?

My personal opinion on how he shapes his political world views.
That's very vague. Please be more specific if you call someone "crazy". What exactly makes his worldview "crazy" in that book? And the other 3 you "read"?

Requiem for the American dream
And what exactly made you think he was crazy after reading that book? I thought his historical analysis was perfectly accurate (unless you have points to retort?) and the conclusions he draws from this analysis extremely insightful. Do you really love neoliberalism and enriching the 1% that much?

Please, do tell us what 4 books you "read" and what made you conclude Noam Chomsky was crazy after reading them.

Yaaawn, perhaps if you’re into the guy, sure I guess.
But he made a ton of money, properties all over the world, hit wife, private jet in a private helicopter as well as a presidency.
Admiring crooked businessmen over intellectuals (and actually voting for them!) is exactly the reason why there will be 100k deaths frim Covid-19 in America in the next few days.
Nadir of civilization indeed.

Some say that about the President.
And some of them even actually even believe it when they say it! Which goes to show that we are definitely living in the nadir of modern civilization.
Noam Chomsky is a philosopher, linguist, historian and cognitive scientist. He holds the titles of Institute Professor at MIT and Laureate Professor at the university of Arizona. He wrote over 100 books, is one of the founders of cognitive science and influenced countless other intellectuals in all academic fields.
Donald Trump hosted The Apprentice.
I rest my case.

the deaths had nothing to do with Trump
It's not really a coincidence if the pandemic hit much harder in countries with notoriously incompetent/right wing populist leaders. Trump, Bolsanaro, Johnson, Putin... "peoples health, daily and cultural habits" are pretty much the same in Canada and in the US, and yet the death count is vastly, vastly different.

Like they did for Hillary? Allegedly?
91% of black voters voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. 81% black men, 98% black women. The only number remotely as high as this was white non-college grad voters, 64% for Trump.
But waited so, so very long to endorse him, why? Hmmmmm...oh, I know...
0 ( +2 / -2 )
Trump was acquitted
That's not what happened at all.
but he has a history of being a racial flame thrower
Sure, that's why 83% of black voters expressed his support for him last week and Barack Obama chose him as his VP. Because he's a known racist. Makes perfect sense.
0 ( +3 / -3 )
He has been on a roll since his racist comments
The whole "Biden is a rapist" thing didn't stick, "Biden is in bed with China and Russia" didn't stick either, so now it's the full force on the "Biden is a racist" angle, apparently. I'm not sure it's gonna work very well against "mexicans are rapists" and "Barack Obama is a Kenyan" though. But good luck to the fox news propaganda machine, I guess.

It's fascinating how this global crisis has quickly exposed far-right leaders for the incompetent frauds that they have always been. That's what happens when you face a virus that kills indiscriminately and doesn't care about lies, propaganda and manipulation. The situation is Brasil will only get worse, the loss of life will be tremendous, but hopefully it will ultimately make Brasilians realize how much of an useless idiot their president is when the next elections come around.

It should be written like this " White House was in the hands of a sociopathic megalomaniac for eight years.."
I know it seems much longer, but check your calendar, it's only been four years.

No, not similar at all...
Humans share 99% of their DNA with bonobo chimps.
Does that give you and idea of how "79.8%" is extremely small, DNA-wise, to claim that two things are the same?

As I said, Joe didnt even have the nerve to apologize directly to Charlamagne
But you explicitly said he did, though: "by the person the apology was given to, Charlamagne the God."
Why would you say that if you knew it wasn't true?
Charlemagne's response to Bidens indirect apology indicates it was not accepted
Except Charlamagne wasn't responding to any apologies, he was explaining to the CNN anchor what his takeaway from the whole conversation was: https://twitter.com/KFILE/status/1263992047989645317
When you actually listen to it, his statements don't contain any rejection of any apology at all.
So, again, you're dealing in half-truths and context manipulation. (Because you just read a New York Post article and assumed it was actually serious news, I imagine)
Now, to get back a little closer to the topic, will Biden's comments influence his popularity with black voters in the coming election? He was at 83% with them a few days ago. I seriously doubt what he said will change much of that, even if the right wing media machine does everything it can to do so. After all it's not like he called mexicans "rapists" or accused a black elected statesman of not being born in America.

I hope that's not some sort of derogatory term?
I know you guys like to twist everything all around, so I had to be crystal clear on this.
But you weren't crystal clear at all.
You said Biden apologized to Charlamagne, and then Charlamagne rejected his apology. And none of that happened. Biden didn't apologize to Charlamagne, and Charlamagne didn't reject any apologies, since there were none to be rejected. I simply read what you said, checked it, and found out it was (as is often the case), a falsehood or a half-truth. So it's a little astonishing to see you accuse other people of twisting everything around.

Speaking of the coronavirus pandemic, the NY times
What does that have to do with Trump golfing exactly?
Of course, 5 mins later basic research shows
Useless comment without sources.
2 ( +5 / -3 )
So why did you just say he did, then?
Charlamagne isnt buying it.
Except his answer doesn't have anything to do with any apologies. He was reacting to the interview as a whole. You should look for the context of your quotes instead of simply copy pasting them from the NY Post's website. Or did you actually know this and are now simply trying to frame the whole thing another way on purpose?
1 ( +1 / -0 )
Yes, there’s video of it.
Please provide it.
It’s news, so that means, the overwhelming liberal news outlets shouldn’t cover it because of the love and devotion they have for the guy?
But it didn't even make that big of a splash in right-wing outlets. if I google search it now, it's really just a few cooky websites. I would have thought Fox News would have been all over it for at least 3 days.

by the person the apology was given to, Charlamagne the God.
He did? When did he apologize to Charlamagne exactly? Because he didn't do it during the show and I don't believe they've publicly spoken since.

No, they are.
I fail to see how this article makes a positive win out of 40 lost House seats for the republicans in 2018. Please explain what you're tryin to say.

Usually the fierce apology is quickly accepted. This time it was denied.
It was?? Was there a national poll of some sort?

So they should be on the losing side?
The democrats weren't really the "losing side" during the last election, two years ago, were they?
these liberal left-wingers spout in Silicon Valley
You have a very skewed image of Silicon Valley. In reality it is not (and never has been) a liberal enclave. On the contrary, it's a lot of very rich white men, who typically didn't really vote Clinton last time around.
