If you get a bunch of corrupt people in enough positions, the world is your oyster. You can make anything you wish happen whether the majority like it or not. Looks like we might be heading that direction. That's when a civil war becomes more likely.

Maybe you don't realize this, but this is how half the country feels about what happen in the 2020 election and what the Election Integrity bill was going to create. I'm sure you disagree with their view, but I'm trying to let you know that's how they feel.

It's just like the CNN commentator talking about how Elon may make liberal voices silenced, shadow banned, or suspended from the platform. That's a level of self-awareness that was staggering, because that's exactly what happened to conservatives and what they said was happening.

What makes you think alt-right voices were silenced or shadow banned? That should be easy to prove with data, right?

This is common knowledge, Indy. The people that were have that data, but a purge of a ton of them happened a few times.

Kicking people off twitter or FB for repeatedly lying isn't "silencing alt-right voices."

I mention Trump all the time too. Doesn’t make him my hero.

If Soros bankrolled a movie claiming to prove Trump lost the election would you be suspicious?

I don;t know anyone on the left side of the spectrum that talks about Soros. Or supports him. And very few could even pick him out of a lineup. It is the right side that is obsessed with him.

Soros is a bad guy. His life goal is to destroy the US.

As far as I can tell from his past fortune building escapades, destabilizing a country makes him a shit load of money.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Soros
George Soros[a] HonFBA (born György Schwartz, August 12, 1930)[1][2] is a Hungarian-born American businessman and philanthropist.[8][9] As of March 2021, he had a net worth of US$8.6 billion,[10][11] having donated more than $32 billion to the Open Society Foundations,[12] of which $15 billion have already been distributed, representing 64% of his original fortune. Forbes called him the "most generous giver" (in terms of percentage of net worth).

Half the country does not believe that the election was stolen. At most it is somewhere in the low to mid 30% range, essentially entirely consisting of Republicans who are mad that Super King Trump did not win. Here are several links to show actual poll numbers on this:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... lie-trump/
https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2 ... ion-was-f/
https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/exhau ... e-lives-on

Even if 100% of Republicans decided to "feel" that something wrong happened in the 2020 election, their "feelings" don't make it true. The complete and total lack of evidence is more important than how they "feel." I thought Trump was the "F**k your feelings" candidate, anyway? There simply are no receipts here, no evidence of voter fraud, and yet people still "feel" that something shady must have happened. Sure. GTFO of here with that.

You keep saying that 2000 Mules was debunked, but that simply is not the case. You obviously haven't seen it, but I have and I debunked the bs that the "debunker" tried to make out of it. If you haven't seen it, you have no standing, imo. You are just willfully ignorant.

BTW, it's the Great MAGA King, haha. At least get the title correct. ;)

"willfully ignorant" because you don't watch propaganda from a convicted campaign finance felon. OK

It's not propaganda, when they have the evidence of the perps dead to rights.

If that were the case they would be in court defending themselves.

you don't release a movie in hopes that officials will watch it and then contact you to file charges.
