#Walkaway

They are in panic mode. Writing articles about how #walkaway is full of hot air. Just read the comments on the article if you want to see the direction. The WAPO is getting desperate. Please let this Mueller investigation drag out past November, it would be a blessing. Trump is ruling Social Media, a page right from BHO. Giddy up.

#whatever #keepdreaming

So, because you read something on Brietbart (not exactly reliable, and big supporter of Trump) that the other side is falling apart, with no attribution to actual data, and ignoring the large turnouts for recent Dem primaries - oh, and the significant erosion of Repub support (or out right losses - see: AL), that therefore, it's real. Based on a video getting a million views (which could all be Dem, all Rep, or a mix, but no one knows.).

Oh, and that the most viral retweets are actually by bots. #fakenews #400lbFatRussianKidinUSSRBasement

One of the most viral #WalkAway tweets, for example, read as the generational reverse of the “woke toddler” meme:

The tweet had more than 16,000 retweets by Sunday. However, as my colleague Dave Weigel noted, the account appears to be a bot, an impersonation or both: @sofialimited’s profile picture was stolen from a book cover by someone with a different name. The account has since been suspended from Twitter.


I guess in your world Trump is popular. #not

Again, you continue to demonstrate a lack of critical thinking: Getting your "facts" from comment sections, twitter, 4Chan, Rush, Hannity; not seeking out any corroborating facts; and a failure to examine if the conclusions being feed to you have any basis in reality.

I'm not sure if it's funny or sad that you display exactly what Kennith said is lacking - all the while agreeing with him, but completely oblivious to the fact that you are a perfect example.

The author of the above article summed it up well (thinking viral, even in an echo chamber means popular (or even right)):

The pro-Trump Internet is really good at convincing its audience that going viral signals popular opinion, that its movement is and always will be #winning. In this case, #WalkAway is the answer to the possibility of a Blue Wave in the 2018 midterms. It doesn’t need to be true to be effective. After all, the hashtag has now become an article in The Washington Post.

You sure do a lot of assuming. Does this help your cause? I do listen to Rush, never heard of those other places. You're scared to listen to the Golden Mic so what would you know about that? You never told us how Trump was single handedly undermining our branches of Government. You do understand how our government works, right? Crickets, to be expected.

Do have any clue about Trumps social media numbers? Be frightened Scott.

Like I said above:

You think social media/ratings is how to govern. Which is just childish.

And the fact that lots of people (including our President) think the same way does frighten me. For exactly the reasons Kennith outlined about ignorance.

#Idiocracy





PS: What assumptions did I make? I stated facts: The Dems are motivated. The Repubs have lost (or damn close) congressional districts they should have easily won. That Twitter has lots of bots/fake accounts that propagate bullshit. That you get your news from the op-ed comment section?

LOL, what Roy Moore? Well no shit.

The Dems are motivated? By what Scott? Trump Derangement Syndrome? Best of luck my friend!

You'd better get a platform or some kind of substance but I already think it's to late. Maybe 2020?

I thought you thought Roy Moore was a fine upstanding Southern Gentleman? That "the people" would see right through the MSM's lies?

#YoureFullofShit

The media is in double overtime to convince the American people they can change the election in Alabama. Did't work with Trump, will it work with Moore? The headlines are comical today in the Fake News Cycle.

When it's all you got left.

You do the spin, put the words in and hope it sticks. Some people that works Scott. Me, I'll call you out.

Now, what branches of Government is Trump successfully undermining, and how?

You've got a nasty case of confirmation bias and projection; perhaps the worst I've ever observed.

Either that's the case, or you're just trolling people for fun. I find it hard to believe someone could be that oblivious to his own environment.

As was pointed out earlier, this is partially the result of having only two parties on the table. The rest is caused by social media echo chambers and oblivious mainstream media who would rather crack an egg open than wait for a chicken.

Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE should stop exposing themselves to news outlets immediately and until at least half of them go out of business. If you want to protest something, nut up intellectually and attack the problem; not the continuing, unstoppable results.

I don't believe you're as stupid as you present yourself. It's nearly impossible.

If you just can't stop yourself from being mislead, that's fine. Install privacy badger, two ad blockers, and enable both your browser's privacy mode and a VPN. It's mostly free. Do that, and I'll find one grain of respect for you.

Cheers,

Kennith

Whenever I need a laugh I just peek into the Politics forum. You just know that SGaynor will be vomiting hysteria on every thread. Good stuff.

I myself am guilty of falling down the MSM Rabbit hole everyone once in a while. At least I come up for air and admit predictions will get egg on my face. Goodness. I've never seen so much hysteria in all my years. It's amazing and scary all at once.
