    Unbiased factual news is basically non existent. In fact, everything on screen, print, social media and E-Info has lost any sensible middle ground. News has become only narrative mouth pieces in support of the equally mass polarization of our 2 major political parties.

    So here we are, debating our country's current reality and, more importantly, our future in the 21st century. Yes, it's a X BBall board for sure, but I think it's a microcosm of the National State of mind, politically.

    What fascinates me is that regardless of what links are provided, the other side simply discredits the source as politically bias.

    There ARE NO alternate facts that the southern border is recording record numbers of illegals over Biden's welcome mat.

    There ARE NO alternate facts that Law enforcement is being drastically demoralized and Big Dem City crime is setting all time records.

    There ARE NO alternate facts that the progressive GND coalition of the Democratic party, is actively demanding the destruction of the Fossil Fuel industry.

    There ARE NO alternate facts that point to a "systematic racism and white privilege" reality not being aggressively implemented, by progressives, in every corner of our society. In fact, it is basically being INSISTED upon.

    There ARE NO alternate facts that our Federal Teachers Unions are insisting on gender identity awareness and alternate traditional sexual approval, is not happening as we speak.

    Plz, can y'all not ask me to provide proof. Don't waste time posting it's just Right Wing "talking poins". It's clearly a very disturbing state of affairs and any rational citizen can see it.....crystal.

    How do you vote for this "Fundamentally Transform America" playbook?
    The "point" that you had for this thread and the result are quite different. The result of this thread is that we are now keenly aware that you have been radicalized by Deep Red State talking points. Most of what you are so concerned with and afraid of aren't actual real things, they are just political talking points to scare you by the election deniers of the world, and/or implemented in small recesses in the country.

    Do some extreme left wing people/politicians want some of the identity politics that you describe above? Sure, but you are asking people on here to defend those extreme talking points that barely exist. No one is going to do that because 1.) they barely register in real life and 2.) they aren't defensible.

    If you want to speak to just the border patrol policies and police reform, ok that's fair and something that can be debated on. However, let's stop with the every democrat wants complete open borders, zero police and murderers to roam free rhetoric that you seem to be insisting on.

    You base this on what exactly? The guy who killed the 18 year old's statements? I found a ton of links mentioning the political argument, or did I just misunderstand you and you are speaking to the NY times "journalism."

    Maybe some Breitbart involved.

    The New York Times, CNN, Washington Post, MSNBC. But in my very first sentence I referenced the “NYT”. Sorry if it wasn’t clear enough. But All the usual suspects had no reporting.
    I also link to the New York Post below. Fox also has had a story about it I understand. https://nypost.com/2022/09/23/north-...can-extremist/

    In what way? There actually have been two killings by Leftists in the last 10 days- one of them was of a journalist in Las Vegas by an elected Democratic official.
    Where is Jim Acosta crying that “Journalists will die” after Biden has a prime time speech calling half the country threats and radicals?
    The only people who have died have been Republicans at the hands of Democrats. Let’s not even talk about Dave Chappelle being attacked on stage.
    Sit this one out Paul.

    ok so what exactly do you have a problem with, because in the stories they say there was no evidence that the teen was a "republican extremist," or they don't mention that the murderer was a "democratic socialis?" Kind of a weird thing to get your panties in a bunch over.

    Uh, the lack of Journalistic ethics from the New York Times? Pretty clear isn’t it?

    It would be interesting to have a link to something that claimed (let alone proved) that the guy was a "democratic socialist." I didn't see a link.

    One NY Post story says this:
    After the crash, Brandt reportedly told police he had been drinking and was found to have a blood alcohol level of .08, the legal limit
    .
    https://nypost.com/2022/09/23/north-...can-extremist/

    The first NY Post story says this:
    A breathalyzer test determined that Brandt’s blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit of 0.08.

    Need some editors there.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.
