    In Soviet Russia... meh, I'm unimaginative, today. There has to be a really good joke to be made from "corrupt hotdog salesman," though

    "Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

    Stupid, probably. Well, stupid, definitely, but not sure exactly how much stupid to blame on which people. I don't know his motives, but you and I share #fakenews frequently.

    My takeaway was the hate voicemails. Seems a bit hypocritical, no? (paraphrasing) "I'm so pissed off at you at suggesting that Parkland might have been false flag that I hope you eat a .223 traveling at its rated velocity." Not a lot of bright bulbs in this story.

    I have been neglecting this thread.

    If you catch yourself posting fake news try to add it here. I need to link the Parkland ROF stuff.

    But then again that specific situation was accidental (misinformation) being reported. Fake News is usually purposeful lies (disinformation) being transmitted.

    I'm almost done with this other other other BS project, so then I will get back to my other other BS project which we've talked about in private - I think there's a good opportunity to join #fakenews into that, I need to think about how to shoehorn it in, but the high-level is effectively the same thing.
