“Not everything they say is a lie”
Maybe so, but you’d have to do a lot of digging through the ton of manure to find the one grain of undigested oats.
Not going to find a pony in that pile of horse manure.
“Democracy dies in the darkness”
Com’on, Skye. Shrug those shoulders one more time. A little harder. Papa needs a new pair of boobs…….I mean, shoes.
It’s just getting harder and harder to find satisfactory places to put those word balloons.
Skye is absolutely right! They publish a very carefully cropped and immaculately spun version of truth designed to be literally true but practically propaganda.
WashPo was always a liberal rag. However, they reported articles exposing local problems. Now, they’re just Bezo’s blog.
I am fairly certain that most days the date on the masthead and on the pages is the correct date.
For some reason, I’m reminded of a certain 2008 vice-presidential candidate who would’ve looked just as smoking hot in that top in panel 2…
Pray for her. She may be having some personal problems, unless it is fake news. Alleged filing in Anchorage, Alaska. Incompatibility of temperament between the parties … , or such. Sad.
Reports were that Todd filed, not Sarah. But the 24 hour rule applies.
You think it’s safe to use at the cage bottom these days?
Rather than collecting guano, it might give the bird dysentery and make it a rocket powered canary.
The WaPo is correctly telling us that democracy dies in darkness. They simply don’t finish, and tell us that they’re doing they’re best to keep us all in the dark.
Mostly, they’re gaslighting us at every opportunity.
Of course they think of themselves as the good guys, so I’m sure they’d prefer to call it Jedi mind tricks.
“These aren’t the droids you are looking for.”
Wouldn’t starting impeachment hearings for headlines, when you are not really trying to impeach be gaslighting?
Is that a hanging offense…
Or, at least toss them all out of congress
Like mushrooms. Raised in the dark, and fed manure.
Modern media, covering all the important stories.
With a pillow. Until they stop moving.
Being criminal co-conspirators in the highly illegal Spygate coup operation would tend to make “the media” want to snuff the story out, yes.
Dan Bongino puts it this way, “The media tell A story, not THE story.”
Remember, JOE BS, “Truth, not Facts!”
Any way democracy dies is fine with me. Mob rule is a hideous thing.
Exactly. Since when did the tyranny of the majority become the ultimate goal? When did we stop speaking of liberty, and substitute it with democracy, as though no one should notice the difference?
If, as Jesus said, Narrow in the path, and few are those that find it, then upholding democracy as though it were synonymous with justice would be the best way to ensure the degradation and ultimate destruction of any society.
This is why the Founding Fathers created a Republic, instead of a Democracy. Democracy always degenerates to a mobocracy.
The best part of the WashPo, always, were its three pages of comics.
No crossword puzzle?
But the media needs to interpret things for us because ordinary people presented with the facts get easily confused. Anyone old enough to remember might think it’s already too late to stop the Earth from being consumed by the same runaway greenhouse effect that destroyed Venus, and not realize that ackschulully no scientists ever said anything like that, never happened, we have until 2030 or 2050 or so to stop the 2°C of warming that will merely devastate the planet.
People studying the scientific facts without the assistance of the media might even believe real scientists are really talking about 2° total since pre-Industrial Revolution times, aka since the end of The Little Ice Age, notice we’ve already had about a degree and a half warming since then, so it’s really already about as bad as they hope to prevent. Obviously it’s much better to let the media tell us the truth we should be believing.
So how do the ( koff!) “climate scientists” (koff!) account for the pre-industrial Mediaeval Warming Period? And the Little Ice Age that followed?
“democracy dies in darkness”. Post quote.
“journalism dies at the Post”. My quote.
Well that little narration was the last nail in Hanks’ coffin as far as I am concerned.
Eternal darkness for him and all who look to the WaPo for their source of light.
Once again, Chris; nice figure study.
How many here, the day after 9/11 One and Two, still harbor the resolve of an American filled with dark hate and cold rage? How much treasure is still to be taken from us? I’m sure the families that had members murdered on those days would give much treasure to have their treasures returned. Even now, 18 years later, the families only have the taste from the salt of their tears to carry them on.
9/12 dawned a new world.
And we all almost don’t have our country anymore.
Is this a Trump 2020 ad? Greenpeace activists have shut down the Houston Ship Channel to protest fossil fuels #DemDebate
Greenpeace activists have suspended themselves from the Fred Hartman Bridge, effectively shutting down the Houston Ship Channel to ships trying to enter and leave the port:
Coast Guard has closed off just a portion of the channel. Now since energy is a National Defense issue and these people are disrupting international commerce, does this rise to being terrorism? Does this deserve any response beyond waiting for these hanging Greens to dry up and drop off? 😉
Get them off.
Let them jump.
Tarzan made a jump like that.
I one of the now hated by the left old white dude can do it, they can at least try.
See, that’s the problem with living in the suburbs of quiet, placid, calm Salt Lake City. (sigh…..) Nothing fun like this happens here. Lots of talk from the Lunatic Fringe Libtard Left, but little action.
If I were there, I guar-an-damn-tee SOMETHING would happen. Shoot at them with paintballs or 22LR. Maybe pour paint or “buckets of blood” (anyone remember that song?) from overhead. Cut the support lines? hehehehe Watch the scramble.
I feel about them the same way I feel about the protesters laying on the sidewalk in front of the new Canadian Chik-Fil-A. Don’t walk OVER them, step directly ON them.
They’re doing it wrong.
Need to show them how a hanging is done.
Then just leave them there and let the clowns debate about it; maybe the green eels will even join them…that would be fun!
I guess no one told them how dangerous hanging in a harness can be. People die hanging from a fall protection harness too long, not that it would be a loss to society.
That second panel has me ssoooo distracted… Best in days, maybe weeks! Back to politics… Um nevermind. I’ve. Got “global” things on my mund at the moment.
