Diary of disturbing disinformation and harmful delusions
“5 [Capitol Police] officers who responded selflessly to the assault on Jan. 6 have since misplaced their lives.”
— Lawyer Common Merrick Garland, Jan. 5
We are saying: Huh? A type of officers died of pure causes the following day, the health worker discovered. The opposite four committed suicide, two of them six months later. Sure, the riot was a disgusting stain on US historical past, however the reality stays that not a single particular person — police officer or in any other case — was killed in an assault by rioters, it doesn’t matter what Garland would have you to think, with his cynically but carefully chosen words.
“Kyle Rittenhouse . . . used his semi-automatic weapon to kill two Black males in Kenosha, Wisconsin, whereas waging a wonderful race warfare on behalf of his inherited White energy.”
— From Nationwide Geographic “Egyptologist” Kara Cooney’s “The Good Kings” (and mocked in a Jan. 4 tweet)
We are saying: Properly, what do you anticipate from an Egyptologist who goes political? Reality is, each males Rittenhouse killed had been white, not black, and a jury discovered he acted in self-defense, not “whereas waging a wonderful race warfare.” Cooney admits she erred, claiming her mistake was “caught too late.” Nevertheless it clearly obtained previous her, her editors and her writer due to their biased, fact-free views. Certainly, regardless of the error, Cooney nonetheless “stands by” her “sentiment of white supremacy.”
We are saying: Uh, so long as academics union boss Randi Weingarten approves, Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki forgot to add.
“I’m fearful that if Republicans win within the midterm elections, that voting as we all know it on this nation might be gone. . . . It may very well be the final election.”
– Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), Jan. 4
We are saying: This can be a US congressman talking? Please: Does anybody actually suppose America will finish elections if Republicans prevail in November’s midterm elections? Discuss ugly, determined fear-mongering.
We are saying: Yikes! The Civil Conflict started in 1861, not 1865. And also you’d suppose “journalist” Nikole Hannah-Jones (tweeting as “Ida Bae Wells”) — whose “1619 Mission” for The New York Instances is now a part of the historical past curriculum in colleges throughout the nation — would be able to get her facts right on the warfare that ended slavery. True, she later claimed her remark was “poorly worded.” However the “1619 Project” can also be riddled with errors, many much more severe than this one.
