    I used to think that Lefties were just stupid. But I realized it was more than that. They are also completely incompetant.

    Be careful. Some of them are also smart. They will twist something around
    to make it appear you are the dumb one. Example:

    -- Group A protests and complains about what Group B is selling,
    publishing, showing, etc.
    -- Group B later coincidentally decides to quit selling, publishing,
    showing whatever it is that triggers Group A

    I can see cause and effect there. The smart lefties will deny that there
    is any connection going on there... Group B decided that on their own, by coincidence, and there is no cancelling going on. It is not "cancel
    culture," it is progress.

    Some really believe that, and some know to say it to try to mislead others
    into believing it. That latter group is smarter than we give them credit
    for, and they are not incompetant when it comes to getting their misleading message out there.

    They've been doing that for a long time now.

    But they can't hide what they do anymore. More and more people are on
    to their tactics and they simply don't work anymore.

    Heck, there's a guy who wrote a set of books about their tactics.

    While the Lefties tactics will continue to work on some people, that group
    is shrinking and it's shrinking faster every day.

    I can see cause and effect there. The smart lefties will deny that
    there is any connection going on there...

    But they can no longer hide the impacts of their decisions.

    Take the border crisis. The Biden Gang **still* denies that there is a crisis, yet even their Propaganda Ministry (i.e. the "media") sees it. The old "There's nothing to see here. Nothing here at all. Take our word for it." isn't working anymore.

    Well, I used to assume they were stupid. The idea that they are not all
    stupid and some parrot the narrative to take advantage of the stupid is something new to me... but they are so obvious about it now it is difficult
    to miss. I used to think only the politicians did that.

    While the Lefties tactics will continue to work on some people, that group
    is shrinking and it's shrinking faster every day.

    Well, the group of non-lefties it might work on is shrinking... the true lefties will always buy their lines.

    Right now I think the media is more upset that their access is controlled rather than them necessarily believing there is a problem.

    What I believe will happen there... right now, they are keeping the press
    out of most of the gulags. Once Biden's Plan is "in place," they will show
    the media around and many of them will buy the idea that there was never a problem and/or the dumbass shift in policy when Biden took office didn't
    cause it.

    I have a theory that Lefties fall into 3 groups:
    1. The Power Hungry. Think Pelosi and the rest of the Dems who only want power.
    2. The Naive Elite. These are people who are experts (or want to believe that they are experts) and think that when the Power Hungry take over that they
    will let the Elites run things (hence the "naive" part).
    3. The Lazy and Stupid.

    Well, the group of non-lefties it might work on is shrinking... the
    true lefties will always buy their lines.

    The Power Hungry don't believe their own Propaganda. But the Naive Elites
    are waking up to the fact that the Dems lied to them. I'll point to Sarah Silverman as an example.

    Some of the Lazy and Stupid are waking up, but, ya, most of them will always buy what the Power Hungry are selling.

    Right now I think the media is more upset that their access is
    controlled rather than them necessarily believing there is a problem.

    The Media is caught between a rock and hard place today. On one hand, they are need to have eyeballs to make money. On the other, they are called upon to further the False Leftie Narrative - which hurts their credibility and reduces the eyeballs - and their income.

    Their lack of access is hurting their bottom line since they can smell a story. But they know that the longer that they are kept from the story, the more time the Dems have to stage something. By then the public won't be fooled and
    the Media's credibility will take an even bigger hit.

    What I believe will happen there... right now, they are keeping the
    press out of most of the gulags. Once Biden's Plan is "in place," they will show the media around and many of them will buy the idea that
    there was never a problem and/or the dumbass shift in policy when Biden took office didn't cause it.

    By then the public won't be fooled and the Media's credibility will take an even bigger hit.

    I still expect to see Media bankrupsies soon.

    For the most part, I agree, except I think there are people in group 2 who, while naive, also realize the propaganda is false but still make every
    attempt to push such propaganda as truth. I am not sure what they are
    hoping to get out of it, but they will sure shout you down if you try to
    voice a contradictory opinion.

    Yes, because they want the freebees.

    I also do.

    I have a Brother and a Son that although we still talk they hate that I remind them of the things Trump accomplished in 4 years.
    I don't bring up politic's with them but when they do I bring them back to reality.

    They feel as though they can run things better than everyone else. They are not in it for power as much, but to do what they naively believe to be
    right. In a sense, it's for power, but not power for power's sake (like
    group 1).

    Too true, unfortunately. I know similar people. Even when you point out
    facts that show that what they believe is wrong, they won't change.

    IHMO it's because they want to believe that they are smarter/better than
    others and cannot admit, even to themselves, that they are wrong.
