By Drain the Swamp, do you mean to vote out every Republican in office?

By muzzle the sjw’s, do you mean to remove the Christians from our Government (separation of church and state) because they keep ruining our country by putting their childish fairytales religious nonsense before our Country and Constitution?

Who even consumes that Media anymore? I certainly don’t, and can’t understand why anyone would.

It’s very simple to eliminate the media from your existence, just turn off the tv and the am junk radio trash.

The problem seems to be more in The Church and The Government. They’re both ensconced in right wing lies and propaganda, it’s next to impossible to bring back those who have entrapped themselves in its tentacles. This is where Free Speech can be used to save our country . The main problem is these people’s disdain for the truth

The problem is not only right wing, left is just as bad. I teach at a University, and free speech there is muzzled by left. In my opinion, right is muzzling free speech more by omission, lies, and distortions, while left does it by by suppressing dissent and administering violence.

In the USA, Courses that teach that "Whiteness" is bad and must be destroyed are routinely offered, including at Yale.

http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/42121/
SJWs dominate HR Departments, Universities, and Bureaucracies Generally, and aggressively regulate speech and privilege post-modern putzery while placing chilling effects on free speech.
10   TwoScoopsOfWompWomp   ignore (2)   2018 Feb 19, 9:18am   ↑ like (0)   ↓ dislike (0)   quote        

The class, which is apparently being offered for the first time this semester, discusses “whiteness as a culturally constructed and economically incorporated entity, which touches upon and assigns value to nearly every aspect of American life and culture.”

The goal of the class is to “create a lab for the construction of counternarratives around whiteness in any creative form: play, poem, memoir, etc.,” states the syllabus.

Taught by Professor Claudia Rankine, the class is divided into eight topics: Constructions of Whiteness, White Property, White Masculinity, White Femininity, White Speech, White Prosperity, White Spaces and White Imagination, according to the syllabus.

Students in the course are asked to read books such as Michael Kimmel’s “Angry White Men: American Masculinity at the End of an Era,” Richard Dyer’s “White: Essays on Race and Culture,” and Richard Delgado’s and Jean Stefanic’s “Critical White Studies: Looking Behind the Mirror.”

Other required readings include Hazel Carby’s “White Woman, Listen!,” Juliana Spahr’s “My White Feminism” and Professor Rankine’s own work, “The White Card.”

Rankine did not respond to multiple requests for comment from The College Fix.

The Fix also reached out to the chair of the English department, Langdon Hammer, and professor of English & African American studies Jacqueline Goldsby. Neither responded.

Outside of Yale, Rankine is active in the theater community. Her play “The White Card” is being produced at Boston’s Emerson Paramount Center. The play, which centers around “a conversation at a dinner party,” focuses on the question: “Can American society progress if whiteness stays invisible?”

Classes like “Constructions of Whiteness” are not unique to Yale. A controversial course titled “The Problem of Whiteness” is currently offered this semester at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Meanwhile, Stanford University offered a class in the fall called “White Identity Politics,” during which students discuss the “possibilities of…abolishing whiteness.”

At the University of Michigan last December, meanwhile, a workshop taught white employees how to address the “discomfort” of being white, instructing participants how to “recognize the difficulties they face when talking about social justice issues related to their White identity, explore this discomfort, and devise ways to work through it.”

Every time you see morons redefining "liberal" is an order to end discussion.

Think of any bad thing and every day you will hear morons redefining "liberal" as that bad thing. They are absolutely robots spreading their orders to "conform or else" to the people. YOU WOULD SEE THROUGH THIS SHIT IMMEDIATELY if real robots were pulling this shit on you.

Did conservatives bring about an end to England ruling and bleeding this country along with the empire of East India Corporation? FUCK NO, people decided on CHANGE. People mobilized! That is the essence of liberal politics not these stupid ass slogans that CONSERVATIVE POSERS compulsively blab about every fucking day. They are not even real conservatives. They are just sick sick sick and their brains have been commandeered to serve corporations, junk food ads, stupid assed cars and super hero movies. CHRIST!

This is the despicable result of conditioning to steer Americans AWAY from the politics that takes care of people's needs instead of the murderous greed of humungous financial interests.

This is the order to shut up and get back to work!

I am an atheist and think that Christianity is the least of the problems this country has. All you do is focus on the right this the right that, and seem to be oblivious to anything the left does, are you honestly not disgusted with the left, I know I am with the right. It’s sad when you have to pick your side by which one you dislike less and if you honestly do like your side you have real issues.

Another thing that would go a long way to fixing our issues would be to remove lobbying and the money going into influencing our government. This is why power and money are
becoming increasingly more concentrated and both parties are more or less the same.

People don’t have disdain for the truth, they have disdain for the endless propaganda being thrown in their faces from every direction.

From my experience, media isn't about truth. It's about selling their world views onto the rest of us. Liberals are notorious for that, their view of the truth is SJW's who are anti-tradition, anti-family, anti-white, anti-capitalism, and pro-socialism. Government bureaucrats know that, so they know how to sell that kind of bullshit to the left, and get away with all their crimes and theft.

I totally agree. Be the change... Do something like getting an education. Develop skills. Get to work. Do some overtime. I did it, just like most normal people.
Instead, what the losers want is to grab someone else's hard earned money through violence. It's called being a criminal. Criminals belong in jail.

Just look at post # 11. Nothing about....taking responsibility, furthering yourself with the opportunities provided by gaining education and skills, nothing about hard work and family values, just violence and taking from others.
Maduro of Venezuela, a bus driver with no brains tried just taking from others, and look what happened? Disaster for the people. The idiot still does not realize he and Chavez killed the goose that laid the golden egg. You would think they would eventually learn from their screw ups, but they don't even have the common sense to learn from past mistakes.
There is a reason why so many losers in the US think like Maduro. They are losers in life, with very little intelligence and no common sense.

One can read all that into the comment without it ever being mentioned.

Bus driving is a respectable, highly responsible, and even stressful occupation that deserves a decent living as compensation, not to be sacrificed on the altar of shareholder value as so many blue collars en masse receive. Where is meritocracy?

There are losers in life. Americans are losers and have lost a lot including steady employment, retirement, access to needed medical treatments, their homes, access to education, even friendly relations has become a luxury that very few can afford, especially with the hatred and distrust that has become front and center. Can one blame them for being stupid when they are being dysinformed and manipulated by the powerful everywhere they turn on a screen? That is what turned them away from politics that advocate for workers and turned instead to advocacy for investments, fears of the others, and empty promises for vindication. That and they don't get insulted by talk at the 4th grade level, not looking for core competencies either. Where is meritocracy?

Symbolic grandeur and authoritarian bluff are succeeding as never before in American history because all that dysinformation and manipulation greatly softened the people. Where is meritocracy?

God only knows what manipulations were intended by the parable of Maduro, but expecting a further suspension of disbelief that meritocracy is a real thing that exists in the United States is asking far too much. More than that, it is the exact cruelty of asking victims to blame only themselves as large contingencies take turns losing and falling into irrelevancy.

One can correctly say that meritocracy is the cornerstone myth of American life. Doesn't mean that there is no meritocracy, it means that the accomplishments of the steadfastly prudent and hardworking Americans get wiped out so frequently by considerations such as, divorce, medical bills, legal defense, shareholder value that for practical purposes meritocracy does not amount to much anyone can count on, so you better get active in politics, UNITE WITH OTHER WORKING FAMILIES and blow off empty exhibitions of conspicuous spending, because that is just an enticement into debt-slavery when your career gets wiped out yet again.

... and the divide and conquer BS marches on and on daily.

There are people getting arrested for giving food to homeless.

Yeah, Free Speech and the Press mattered when Obama was targeting Whistleblowers and Journalists. Well, they mattered to the Intercept and Alt-Media.

The Heritage Legacy Media kept fawning over him.

Now Heritage Media institutions are trying to figure out new ways to police speech and filter news through Establishment mouthpieces.

Distrust is a provably inevitable byproduct of diversity. More diversity = less trust:



As for the loss of steady employment, could it have anything to do with the wholesale export of manufacturing jobs and wholesale import of illegal immigrants willing to work for less than minimum wage? I think maybe so.

I'll grant that the public is indeed misinformed by the mainstream press.
