You conspiracy theory peddlers and spreaders - you know who you are - you folks are doing lasting damage to this country, and the world as a whole. You are destroying lives of innocent folks and their families, and you are enabling our enemies. You need to wake up to reality and stop the BS.

The first example in this thread is the story of a family you people are destroying - people who have served this country, no less - and how you are enabling China to peddle misinformation against ourselves.

This board alone is full of folks peddling and promoting this kind of crap. You know who you are. You peddle and spread it here on this OT Board, you do it on social media, you do it amongst friends and family. It is disgusting and extremely harmful. Stop it.

There is a psychology at play.

Really think it is something like a combination of lust for power and pride in your ability to affect the world from your armchair.


If it was just virtual harassment, that would be one thing. But if you're actually able to motivate people to commit tangible acts of harassment, that's another entirely.

So the Fake News media is indeed harmful to our nation:
Russian collusion
Defending China during this corona virus pandemic
Furthering Fake Kavanaugh stories
Peddling fake Ukrainian collusion stories
Fake stories on Trump

Thank you for admitting that the MSM is the enemy of the people!

CRINGY in a box again.

Seriously, I have concern for Bad Gopher and CRINGY. These are two guys who I would guess are well above average intelligence and they continue to go off the deep end. Guys, if you're reading consider taking a month or tow off the OTB.

- Jussie Smollet
- Covington Catholic
- They told more than 10 outright lies about Trump & his Admin to launch the current 'Trump bungled the Wuhan virus' narrative.
- Just in the past few days they claimed Trump owes millions of dollars to the Bank of China and the loan was coming due, which is false. I saw posters here repeating that conspiracy theory, which has since been edited/retracted.
- Also in the past few days we had the Rick Bright being fired because he opposed Hydroxychloroquine story which turned out to be false.
- Heck, just today I read a tweet from Jake Tapper saying that Trump suggested people inject bleach, which is a blatant lie. CNN isn't even pretending to be unbiased, or a straight news outlet. Anyone pretending they are looks really stupid.

Collective minds. Term of a socialist being reframed and used by a conservative? Shameful.

None of this is accurate whatsoever. You are most certainly part of the problem I identified in the OP.

Why did you post THIS PERSON in the OP if THIS PERSON isn't the point of the OP? THIS PERSON is the perfect example of everything wrong with the fellas, was that not the point? But the fellas have never heard of this woman or promoted this particular conspiracy theory, so your point is what?

Or is this just you pretzel-backtracking when you realized no one is pushing this theory and got caught?

If there was any doubt that the liberals have lost their collective minds look no further then the OTB. Also if you need further convincing check out the posters who “Liked” the OP.
Dean is trolling. But yeah, Howie and Stocker and MPLS and CNC. The Yikes Brothers.

Hollywood, Silicon Valley, Washington DC, New York Media are joined at the hip through shared elitist values and intermarriage.

They have embraced fake progress, "sustainability" where nothing new is invented, they just create new ways to shovel the diminishing wealth of the USA. Hollywood and Silicon Valley are beholden to their huge market in China, they act accordingly.

Well, that was a fun read. (1) OP accuses others of spreading hoaxes by trying to spread a hoax. (2) OP gets called out on it, and is shown how OP and the fellow minions are the one spreading hoaxes. (3) OP says the original post had nothing to do with the original post.

I'll be forced to repeat for what seems like the thousandth time dealing with you: You're not very smart.
Directly stated in the OP itself:

"The first example in this thread is the story of a family you people are destroying - people who have served this country, no less - and how you are enabling China to peddle misinformation against ourselves. "

It's an example. And no, you do not get to make up your own definition of the word "example".

Really, really weird post, and demonstrably wrong on each account. Miserable fail. You make S2 look semi-competent, by comparison.

All Section 8 does is twist and turn everything and he is all knowing, lol, that the only free market has lead to the most prosperous country in the world, even though, lmao -

We have twice had an administration in this county intervene during an economic crisis and I believe there was some planning that went in there, lol - both saved this country, but I'm sure Section 8 would say, without an proof, that the recovery would have been better if the gov't had done noting at all.

From listening to Dennis Hassert, one of Trump's economic advisers, they are doing a hell of a lot of planning now.

Best thing he is on ignore now, so I can't see his response.

Deuce should have his name changed to Hubris2. Nobody falsely knows everything about anything more than that hack.

Ah good....and Oh...Gee just posted. One of the devoted Trump followers who just happens to be objective. Yeah....and he doesn't defecate either. Just like Kim Jong-Un. Believe him!

When backed into a corner, here’s an idea: don’t turn the arrogance up to 11 and double down.
