Put on your best Trump voice and imagine what the world would be like if Trump said:

“My fellow Americans, Patriots, the Chynah virus is killing many good people, fine people, good American people….and I knew that it was made in a lab in Chynah, I was the first one to say so… But I have great news. I have the had the best scientists and doctors in America, working on a vaccine to combat the Chynah virus…and we have had a breakthrough. The best American pharmaceutical companies, best in the world, have brilliantly created a brand new vaccine. It uses amazing new, revolutionary, nano-lipid technology (I can imagine him saying “Nah-No Lippit”), made in America by Americans. If we want to combat the Chynah virus that they have released upon the world, you should get the vaccine…I got two shots, both of them and I feel great. And don’t forget to wear your Make America Great Again masks.”

It blows my mind to think of what it would be like around here.

Mr, Diding, you are slathering the forum with nonsense. It is forum policy to discourage any poster from appearing more than three times in the New Topic roster.

Sorry, Man.  Just trying to have some interesting discussion on a Sunday afternoon.  For the record, your description of my post as “nonsense” is subjective.  You know that, right?

Someone might find it interesting and not nonsense.  That’s all.  By the way, I posted the same question on a Hunting chat board that I look at sometimes, just to see what the other extreme is on about.

We welcome bursts of nonsense in some threads mostly found in The Forum Funway section. Please avoid slathering.

I can understand why all this subjectivity might be a problem based on a reoccurring message in your posting. Do you trust anyone other than yourself? If your house was on fire, would you hesitate to call the firemen because you do not know for certain that they can put out fires?

What do you mean by the ‘other extreme’?

Fortunately there are ways to test for nonsense.  For instance, Rush Limbaugh said that the covid-19 virus was just the common cold and Trump awarded him the Medal of Freedom.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/02/25/limbaugh-coronavirus-trump/

I trust firemen because I know that they have to regularly demonstrate that they are capable.  Online chatroom moderators…not as much.  Simply a function of the job.  There’s no Book of Chat Room Moderator Standards.  I only occasionally look at two sites.  This one and a Georgia hunting site.  The moderators there treat people with opposing views as poorly as is done here.  I don’t hate the players or the game.

I find it interesting how the script got flipped.  I often imagine, on any hot button subject, how each partisan side would react if the roles were reversed.  For example, what if the Right latched onto CRT and wanted to analyze everything through the lens of whiteness?  What if they REALLY dug into identity politics?  Seems like it would be bad.

You mean the thing they’re just doing and passing laws on right now?  Yes.  It’s bad.

I was reminded that this happened during Trump’s time in office:

“And he also has dozens of tweets suggesting that cold weather disproves climate change - despite the World Meteorological Organization saying that the 20 warmest years on record have been in the past 22 years.”  -  BBC

As climate change disasters multiply around the world - “You can find ways to win elections by slimmer and slimmer margins, but we are quickly arriving at the day when a party that does not have solutions on climate change is not going to be viable with the overall majority of the electorate.”
