Here lately I’ve been hearing the word “misinformation” a lot. You know, referring to the kind of crap Faux News and Republicans are always foisting upon society. The hell with calling it “misinformation.” Let’s call it what it is.
Low down, dirty, conniving, malicious, unadulterated, LIES!
Alternative facts? LIES!
Spin? Spin isn’t quite a lie usually, but it’s always faulty logic. There will almost always be a false equivalency, or a slippery slope, or a half truth, omitting what they don’t want you to hear. Which in that case, is another LIE!
I’m sick and damn tired of dancing around the fact that the loony infested, right wing, nutcase brigade, is flat out lying about damn near everything, and no one mainstream, is calling it out. It gets called “misinformation” instead.
No, it’s LIES all the way down. The longer they get away with it, the deeper the pile of BS that gets dumped, daily, on the boob toob for all of the logic challenged, red hat wearing, dimmer than the lowest wattage bulb in the variety pack, freaking morons, who will soon be believing the lies they hear as fact. And repeating it as fact. When it’s all a bunch of damn LIES!
There is no nice way to say it. They have made a cash cow out of lying to morons. It’s a big industry now don’t cha know? Lying to people has become as valuable as Wall Street. Look at all of the companies, Fox, Onan, Newsmax, the right wing radio froot loop network, an orange idiot recent president, Facebook, numerous right wing internet sites, probably more crap out there than I am even aware of, all based on, the for profit proliferation of the LIE.
…and no one seems interested in calling it that?
I have mentioned to a few R types, that the former orange idiot president, was a damn liar of enormous magnitude. You know what the first thing that comes out of their mouths is? “Well they all do it!” “All politicians are liars!”
As if, that makes it ok? That little bit of idiocy makes it ok for them all to lie? That means we can ignore all the lies they have told, and all of the BS they have foisted upon society? Really?
For that matter, I am a damn liar too. Yes I have told lies. So have you. Some situations might call for a bit of truth stretching, or more adequetely a lie. “Do I look fat in this dress? Anyone ever been asked that? You might be better off telling a little white lie, than being completely honest in some situations. We have all done that, we have all been there, when the little white lie is a better option than the truth. But…
We aren’t making up crazy ass, nut job, conspiracies from whole cloth though. And then pawning it off on national television, or the internet, or the radio, as a matter of known fact. No. That is something else entirely.
It is high time to make this commercial lie institution responsible for their actions. The sort of lies that instigate insurrections, and make people of different opinion, or color, race, creed, or nationality, hate each other, these lies should be made to pay. There should be restitution for any victims who are a result of the lie. The lie for profit companies should pay the government huge fines, for politcizing and profiting from lie after lie after lie.
Free speech is one thing. But I’m going to say it here and now, lying for profit and politics needs to be shot in the foot. The lie that gets ’round the world before the truth can put its shoes on, needs a good dose of expensive reality. These lies need to be made to pay for their actions.
Make them pay, till they can only afford to speak the truth.
