2020 Sweet Spot

By mike flugennockThursday - February 21st, 2019Categories: 2020 Election, Party Animals, elections, media

Never mind for a moment the idea that you’d ever see a pompous-ass big-city morning tome like the Post use the phrase “sweet spot” on top of the fold on A1. This is some of the best news I’ve seen smack on the front page in years. “Candidates Fear Socialist Label…” Why am I so overjoyed at that?

They’re Under Your Bed

As the 2020 Presidential campaign cycle rumbles to life, let’s consider this sage advice from Robby Mook – famous to many as the guy who ran a $1.5 billion Presidential campaign into the ground:

Beware: Russian operatives will try to divide Democrats again in the 2020 primary, making activists unwitting accomplices.

2020 resolution: think before you like or share. It might be foreign propaganda, not “news”.

…and there you have it – a big, hot sloppy load of Cold War drama queen queefage. Cripes, did he compose this himself, or was it an intern? It’s as if he was trying to channel Stan Lee or something. The only thing missing is “evildoers”, but Junior Bush pretty much used that one up.

So, the next time some devious stranger tries to attack Beto O’Rourke by bringing up his piss-awful voting record, remember: they might be Russian. And if you pause to consider Beto’s entirely non-progressive voting record instead of blindly buying into the hype, then you might be a Russian, too. Mwwoooooaaahhh ha ha ha ha ha haaaahhhhh. Now, ve are takink care of Moose and Squirrel.

While the US Left was busy filling every pair of BVD’s in the drawer over Alex Jones, Facebook was busy suppressing Leftist media outlets like Electronic Intifada and TeleSur — with the blessing and assistance of right-wing think tank and NATO lobbyists The Atlantic Council.

Rightists own pretty much all the major media in this country, drench the airwaves in toxic right-wing talking points, and scream the loudest about “censorship” while, in the meantime, Leftist journalists and publications — doing the job that journalists should be doing — take most of the heat from rightists and centrists in the major US media and political establishment.

“Fake News Is Not Your Friend” shout the oppressively bland billboards in our cities; it’s perfectly obvious now that the subtext here is actually just “News Is Not Your Friend”.
