Brainwashing, media style

Why is Sinclair Broadcast Group making news instead of reporting news? Because it wants to control what you think. Amazingly, it’s more insidious than Fox News. We thought news coverage was bad. It’s now worse. Take a look.

Sinclair supports Spanky McPornfucker and the crimes his administration minions are cycling through like Lance Armstrong on an anabolic bender. The right-wing robots have taken control. We are now in the outer limits:

Signs from the March for Our Lives

Hundreds of thousands of people, mostly kids, participated Saturday in the March for Our Lives. Below is the main stage after the event. It was impossible to get to it once the event began:
And here are the signs.

This was an official sign from the District of Columbia. It’s sad they had to post it, but there’s always some gun nut who thinks he has the right to terrorize people:

The following is something I’ve been saying for months:

People are sick of the “thoughts and prayers” response from politicians who prostitute themselves for the NRA …

Because people really know what the NRA stands for.

And the people at the march kept the focus on kids. Practically all of the speakers talked about how guns have affected their lives, from Parkland high school students, to kids in Washington, D.C., who have lost siblings to gun violence or who have stared down the barrel of a gun thinking it was going to be their last second alive.

There was also a reminder of when we had a compassionate, responsible, intelligent and uncorruptable leader in the White House not that long ago:

And there was this friendly reminder from a long departed neighbor:

I arrived at the march a little late and had to leave early because of the crush of the crowd, but while I was there, none of the speakers gave a roll call for the congressional whores who take NRA money in exchange for kids lives. Perhaps someone did do it, but if not, here’s a reminder:

Golden Globe winner for best comedy and best comedy actress

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” a show I’m sure you never heard of, won best comedy and best actress at the Golden Globe Awards. One reason you’ve never heard of it is because it’s on Amazon Prime.

But it’s really good. A look at standup comedy in the 1950s, which brought back many old memories of classic comedians of the era.

I binged it last week. Here’s the first episode.
