The people I know having their kids injected are not boomers. They are hypnotized young mothers who believe they are saving their children from a deadly disease. And no amount of counter information can sway their opinion.

It's bizarre seeing people who used to seem reasonable turned into suicidal fools so quickly and easily.

Boomers are responsible for the mandates.

You never get your freedoms back when they're taken. Those in power do not relinquish control

Nah, they don't see it as sacrificing their young. They think that's all fake news. If Rosie Barton, Joe Scarborough and the cast of The View tell them it's safe to jab their kids, it's safe to jab their kids. End of story.

So the issue here isn't an indifference to the wellbeing of children, it's the blind trust people have in the television. Boomers especially. They all still get 100% of their info from the television. They have no idea that the MSM have all suddenly turned into professional liars over the last half decade. You'd have to read the internet to know that.

Well, they're definitely lying now. I'll grant that in some ways it is more obvious now.

But project Mockingbird goes back to the 70's, doesn't it?

I've heard others say they've been lying a long, long time... and I think that's more likely to be right.

I myself started journalism school in 1996. I was told very clearly that as a journalist, I had to use the words and phrases from the Associated Press guidebook for certain subjects (ethnicities, immigrants etc), and that while I could use other more descriptive phrases:

  1. No outlet in Canada would run stories that didn't use those words
  2. If they did run the stories, editors would change the articles to use the preferred phrases anyway.

This is effectively censorship - narrative control. It's not possible to publish a story that is against, for example, mass immigration, if all the words you are allowed to use for the subject contain clear narrative biases.

I didn't stay in the journalism program. I like to think I kept my integrity there, at least.

The news has been having "experts" lately explaining how the vaccines are fine for children. They don't actually discuss the data, the specific side effects, and so forth. I'm quite amazed at the level of propaganda we have reached in government and corporate media.

You'd have to read the internet to know that.

Yeah, because the Internet is so much better. That's how you end up with Qanon supporters.

Ok, I'll amend that to "You'd have to read the internet and apply critical thinking."

You're definitely not going to be informed if you just watch CNN, MSNBC and CBC.
To find the truth you pretty much have to go to the internet. The challenge is separating the wheat from the chaff.

The vast majority of people aren't up to that challenge.

This is true, but it’s also not the point. It doesn’t change the fact that the media are professional liars and you have to find the truth elsewhere.

Ham_Sandwich77 -1 points ago +3 / -4

Yeah that's what I mean. If you get your info exclusively from the MSM, you have a 0% chance of being informed with the truth. To even have a chance of finding the truth, you need to go on the internet.

Sad but true. Great example today:

Tim Pool is one of the worst offenders when it comes critical thinking (or lack thereof).

What possible reason could the lizard people (or whoever) have to use special effects in the courtroom during the Rittenhouse trial? What's gained by spoofing that section of the aisle behind the prosecutor?

These are kinds of questions crazy people can't or won't ask themselves when looking at something peculiar. It's always straight to the most fantastic and implausible conclusion. And then if anyone tries to talk sense into them, they call that person a "sheep".

Baby boomers are defined as born between 1946 and 1964. The averabe boomer is 66. Their "kids" are adults. Don't let the math get in your way of your hatred for boomers. But leave the rest of us alone with your bullshit.

OK Boomer

That all you got?

Yeah, what a bunch of idiots, wanting their freedom back...
