    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China_Uncensored Is cited as anticommunist and has no hoaxes to its name
    I believe you wrote what is described as a "false equivalency".

    Ayn Rand is an immigrant, but is she a refugee? Moved vs. ran.

    Ok, first of all, I never said the National Post was good, just that you'd like it for being super conservative. Well that's not really true, I think it's hilarious in the same way that a terrible movie or Fox News is. Especially Conrad Black's weekly article. Fun Fact: did you know racism is over in the US because at his minimum security white collar crime prison there were no hate crimes? I think he even talked about the one black guy who was there.

    Second, even in that wikipedia article

    Now I'm not saying you can't watch admittedly biased things. But you don't use them as sources because no one ever takes anything they say seriously. You can use them to go further to find actual studies and such, but the only one of those you've shown has been widely discredited.

    The same could be said of Wikipedia. Check the source that you linked. China Uncensored basically does to China what The Daily Show and Colbert Report does to the US: https://www.dailydot.com/layer8/chin...e-china-trump/ Well, at least, when the Daily Show was good under Jon Stewart. Similarly, in all of China Uncensored's scenes, they will use the headline's source file as the background, so you can check it out yourself.

    First of all, why do you assume that I like "super conservative" things? How many times have I mocked pansy carpenters by now? Also, did your second sentence just contradict your first? I also liked how you completely ignored the recent CNN release about China lying. Again, this is like those movies and games where the "crazy prophet" at the beginning of the thing turns out to be absolutely right.
    "But no one wanted to believe — believe they even existed."
    "And when the truth finally dawns, it dawns in fire."
    "I tried to tell them. They wouldn't listen. Fools. It's all come true... all I could do was watch our doom approach..."

    And yet, many of Biden's adviser picks appear to be liars, who want less aggressive policies towards China. I don't know whether those lies being noble (fear of a hot war) or not (personal greed) would anger me more. Like I said, and apparently as people here agree, in an alternative universe, where Hitler built nukes first, the world as a whole would be praising Germany's population control. In other words, it wouldn't go the way of Wolfenstein. American Empire? Sure, but that makes China the Dominion (yes, Elder Scrolls reference). And we all know what I think the best policy towards the Dominion is:

    Such is the world we live in. Sadly, until some people realize some rights and "good" as a concept are not democratic, every person out there will think what they want to think and follow through with anything their beliefs ask of them religiously.

    Like the current disposition towards celebrity worship and historical iconoclasm instead of informing people about what happened and who made what for what reasons. Seems we must be told what is good and what is bad now as well.

    They want freedom but gives shit about social responsibilities. Besides, it seems anything not democratic is seen as evil, and people are wired to think so.

    You want non-democratic? All right. Let's crucify all the commies. How's that for "non-democratic"?

    Because aside from the loli fetish, you're views and that of the NP line up pretty close. Fuck China. Fuck BLM. Protesters are traitors. Trump's an embarrassment (except in Conrad Black columns, because he got a pardon out of him so he sucks his dick like there's no tomorrow). Sure there's a bunch of really Canadian issues I don't know where you stand, like all the indigenous rights things we have going on right now in Ontario and the Maritimes. But it feels like every GD post of yours is one I just read that day in the paper.

    As for the contradiction thing. The paper is bad, but that makes it really funny.

    As for the CNN thing, what's there to comment on? We all know they tried to downplay every thing about it at the start. And almost every other nation fucked up in their own way too. Whether it was Britain's "Herd Immunity" strategy, Or America's "It will die down naturally by Easter/Summer/Fall/Christmas". There's a big difference between being a fuckup and creating a engineering a bioweapon.

    Well, fuck the CCP more specifically. Similarly, I fairly recently learned that the BLM movement and the BLM organization are not necessarily the same thing. It's the latter that's accepting money from organizations connected to the CCP. Not protesters. Rioters. You must be willfully ignorant of the difference.

    See. Trump downplays the effects, but at least accurate numbers are released. Meanwhile, the CCP straight up lies about the numbers and their actions regarding them.

    It is ironic you would have this reaction, because the entire point of this hearing was to ensure that some people would actually take their time to listen to at least a speck of the evidence in full. And make an informed opinion based on arguments present on both sides.

    Rather than, you know, basing their opinion off somebody's cliff notes on twitter. And thinking that makes them a great data filterer analyst.

    This approach to life, in fact, filters you.

    It's not so much my opinion getting filtered as much as you describing it as epic making me think something interesting happened somewhere in the 4:30 hour stream I found. All I could see in the succinct summaries was that there was a binder of possible violations, a handful of witnesses, and the Dems sniping at the committee chair (and Guilanni as well) because he wouldn't dismiss everything out of hand. And another hearing tomorrow for either more witnesses or another separate lawsuit?

    Other than the length, I can't really see what makes that 'epic' so what was so stand out? Especially against the multiple other similar lawsuits that have been going on for the last few weeks?
