I will say that Conservatives are prisoners of their own self-deception, a group untethered from the world of facts as evident by the many examples on this thread. Hmm

And y'know...to hear the Senator tell the tale there is no racism in Minneapolis because the police would know about it if there was.

So it stands to reason that there were NO racists at the Trump rally.

Simply because Trump has a Klan rally in a blue district doesn't mean that the attendees are District folks. It is known that Trump rally are filled with people who are bused-in.
It you who said it pdx rick. The people that attended the Trump rally in Minneapolis were not bused in. The idea that the people who attended it were bused in is BS!

That may be what you perceive, but what I see is that most of what you call ‘rejected due to source’ is actually rebutted due to false content.

On the subject of bad sources, those can be identified generally by a lack of independently corroborating source material that shows the substance to be non-temious. As it happens, over time some purveyors news and facts establish a reputation for only pitching fake news and alternative facts. Because of that demonstrated lack of trustworthiness they will be quickly rejected as sources if there is no validating corroboration.

Of course, we are all free to express opinions, even opinions unsupported by solid factual information. But those can be rebutted by opinions, too. A good argument, on the other hand, needs more than that.
It is not my perception that the problem here logtroll. What you claim is rejected due to false content is because it is as William F. Buckley said about liberals.

The responses to my comments prove what Buckley said. All of them we critical of me and in defense of a fellow liberal. It is not false content that is rejected it is anything that a conservative says that is rejected.

Whatever you say, Senator. You're right, I'm wrong. Buckley correctly identified you as a Liberal.

My recollection is they left because they could no longer defend the actions of the Bush administration regarding the invasion of Iraq. Remember all those WMD's?
Yes, I do. Do you remember these comments about Iraq's WMD?
Democrats on Iraq's WMD.

It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."

Thanks for showing how hyper-partisan you are rporter314. Bush's invasion of Iraq had bi-partisan support but you forgot that. I wonder why?

Did I write that ALL people attending Trump's Minneapolis Klan rally were bused in? It is true that at other rallys has some attendees bused in? Yes, yes, and yes. smile
