As for Snopes, reading some of their articles first of all. But is seems like common knowledge, just see all the pages that come up in this search:
As for things changing since 2009, just look at what is going on in the world and the drastically increased left-right polarization. You have to be blind not to see that. Both sides are filled with bullshit propaganda, and Snopes is just another propaganda outlet.
Ok, I don’t know enough about snopes to argue. But, I will say, it seems pretty convenient to be able to say: if anti-Trumpers are rioting, it’s antifa and BLM behind it. If pro-Trumpers are rioting, it’s also antifa behind it.
Do you realize that your link, which shows numerous search results provides no credible evidence that Snopes is left leaning? Just wondering.
Also, do you realize that in addition to “left leaning polarization” there’s been an equal, if not greater move to the right by others? If not, go read some old speeches by either of the Bush’s or Reagan, all three of whom would have been blasted by the ultra right wing today as being Obama-esque socialist/communists.
Perhaps the seemingly left wing bias of Snopes is a result of so much bullshit being put out by trolls of Russian, US, or other origin. I don’t doubt that it’s occurred to some leftist shits to pull off some false flag ops, just like it has probably occurred to some right wing nutjobs to do the same. But the vast majority of this stuff you here about on Twitter, FB etc. is trolljob scare tactics to befuddle the dimwitted. Don’t be a befuddled dimwit.
Sounds more like he considers some Democrat voters to be good people.
The Dems didn’t accept the result of the last election. Not my president? Like I said, both sides are fucked, except Trump isn’t a Marxist and doesn’t defend Marxists. That’s pretty much all he has going for him.
The issue is that Snopes seems to “debunk” statements by conservatives that are pretty much true but mistaken on some relatively unimportant point, while finding statements from the left to be “mostly true” when they have a kernel of truth but are wildly embellished.
The little shits would probably break all of the GOOD china then sell the entertainment system to get that fancy new weed they all smoke. Some lemon drop kush crispies or what ever the hell they call it.
Apparently this actually exists (conducted a quick Google search). A rule 34 appears to exist for weed… Whatever ridiculous name you can think of, there’s probably some type of cannabis branded under that name.
There’s a strain called “purple monkey balls”…
@Beyond_Beyond I believe antifa have yet to be formally labelled as a terrorist organisation, though if reports within the media are to be taken at face value they do appear to meet the designated criteria. They have a point to convey (preaching anti-racism, anti-fascist rhetoric), but they go way too far, resorting to harassment, rioting, violence etc.
I doubt they’ll never gain significant mainstream traction as a significant body of antifa supporters support extremist political ideologies alongside the lines of anarchism and communism.
I’ve seen the concerning reports regarding antifa inducing chaos, but I tend to believe said reports are steeped in sensationalism. I’m sure they cause trouble, but I don’t think they represent a legitimate threat to the average American way of life (support base is too low).
Hey Unreal, Antifa probably won’t gain mainstream support, but they don’t need to. In any revolution its usually only 10-15% of violent arseholes organised politically that are needed to bully the rest of the population that just wants a quiet, peaceful life.
They are the militant spearhead of the a vast number of neo marxists that have slowly infiltrated the media, education, politics and the public service/deep state, over the last 50-60 years.
Even so they have a large, dare I say mainstream support in places like Portland and Seattle. Mayors and Governors who support their defund the Police intentions.
We have seen that their anti racist, anti fascist rhetoric is a smokescreen to convince people(and themselves) they are fighting for good. What decent person would be against someone who is against racism or fascism? Therefore anyone who doesn’t agree with them automatically must be a racists and or a fascist.
They fight racism with racism, and fascism with fascism. Its just a false justification to trick average people, whilst they grab for power.
