They All Look Alike

Post by Maddy » Sat Apr 10, 2021 10:15 am

I thought this was absolutely hysterical. "Woke" msnbc journalist airs video of the wrong black congressman. I imagine she's hyperventilating about now, and that her equally woke colleagues are attempting to console her by assuring her that "it could have happened to anyone."

I'm glad you found something light hearted in the news today Maddy, because otherwise it's all kinda depressing.

Most especially, that Joe Biden (or whoever is controlling him behind the scenes) has taken the first steps toward Supreme Court packing by convening a commission. Which is of course severely tilted toward left/socialist/progressive types who want to fix the Court in any way they can.

Aaaaaaand it happens again! This time, Nancy Pelosi attempts to honor baseball legend Willie Mays by posting a photo of herself posing with a different black guy. https://www.breitbart.com/sports/2021/0 ... ll-player/

Why do you suppose those dems have such a hard time distinguishing one black person from another?

So a few democratic lawmakers make a few honest mistakes. It seems like when white police mistake a gun in the hands of every black person, that’s overlooked by the right wing main stream media as an “honest mistake”

I found this interesting. It makes it easier to understand the differing levels of urgency as there is such a differing perception of reality between the two extremes.

“ 1. The available data on police shootings of unarmed Black men is incomplete; however, existing data indicate that somewhere between 13-27 unarmed black men were killed by police in 2019. Adjusted for the number of law enforcement agencies that have yet to provide data, this number may be higher, perhaps between 60-100.
• Yet, over half (53.5%) of those reporting “very liberal” political views estimated that 1,000 or more unarmed Black men were killed, a likely error of at least an order of magnitude (see Figure 1).
2. The available data suggest that 24.9% of people killed by police in 2019 were Black. However, across the political spectrum, survey participants overestimated this number.
• Those who reported being “liberal” or “very liberal” were
particularly inaccurate, estimating the proportion to be 56% and 60%, respectively (see Figure 2).”

So you’re trying to make an argument that 27 unarmed black men gunned down by white supremacists with badges each year is a reasonable number that we should all find acceptable?

No I am not. Just that the actual numbers are far less than people on the left, particularly the more extreme end of the left, tend to believe. This leads to differences in emphasis and response between news sources catering to the very conservative vs very liberal groups.

Apologies to the OP. Didn’t mean to sidetrack the discussion.

Yes, welcome to the forum Lord Doskias, hopefully you dont get seduced by the allure of the alt right extremists here claiming to be libertarians as I once did. Unless you think children should not be required to get vaccinated for COVID but be allowed to own nuclear bombs that they play with on the school playground, maskless, within 3 feet of each other.

Tomfoolery, at least you could play nice and be kind until he figures out you are more second part of your name than first. ;) Is a satirical satirist full of dung beetle food or one who was injected with mRNA “eliminate the weak” conspiracy vaccine?
