I just watched first 10 seconds and OF COURSE AND AS PREDICTED …
It’s a Faux News talking head who leads with “I am just speculating” (OT ignores that part)
And then he goes on to suggest that something nefarious was afoot because the cop knew Floyd. He starts with”someone should look into ….”
This is a perfect example of what I always post about which is Talking Heads selling a point of view. It surfaces with OT because he’s the most susceptible, but this is what is pushed out all over the Internet all the time over and over
Do your research folks. Someone tried to send me video of a man claiming HR 748 was drawn up in January 2019 because they knew there was going to be a covid outbreak. The bill was submitted in January 2019 but had the CARES portion added earlier this year. Do your own research and don’t believe everything you hear or read. BTW the video was very convincing BUT that very key part of the CARES portion being added later was left out of the video.
This ^^^ is a great post and it echoes the comments of the current FBI Director that Americans have to becomes EDUCATED and CRITICAL consumers of information.
If you look at at the bullshit posted here from OTs You Tube videos to CoffeeIsland’s Ukraine story to Buggsy posting Team Trump … all these things are typically taking some truth and twisting it either affirmatively or by omission
The simple starting piggy should just asking yourself about the motivation of the source. Of course, that doesn’t working if – like my examples above- you’re just looking for tings to “confirm” your bias.
OT – like his counterparts here- cares more about maintaining the cocoon than actual fact
Obviously, OT has unique issues but if you look at many posts here you will see Trumpettes routinely react to facts that threaten the cocoon (ie their world view) with vitriol, deflection etc. I am sure that’s a pretty normal human response, but what makes Trumpettes unique is that they seem to call others uniformed or dumb when they are actually denying fact.
That is the essence of conspiracy theories. Again OT is an extreme example, but you can see him post all the time that EVERYONE ELSE needs to wake up to “truth,” even if he is perpetually wrong and will not defend it.
Luckily that mindset is in the distinct minority as we now see many GOP pulling away from Trumpism
