My left pinky fingernail is racist.

The trouble is, over the last X years, I feel like I'm being forced out of feeling neutral about race into being forced to like other races.  Sorry, but I must confess that out in the open.

Remember when people preached tolerance?  When it was said that they didn't want tolerance, but acceptance/encouragement that some people argued that wasn't the case.  That seems a bit distant now.

I have no problem with other races. It's other people I don't like ...

The dems are doing the same bomb throwing with the Twitter hearings. Some of the snippets I've heard are out there with Pluto.

Once again I must point out that the facts and reality do not matter worth a damn.

It's the number of repetitions that matters.

https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20161026-how-liars-create-the-illusion-of-truth

"Their results {of these experiments -ed,} show that the illusion of truth effect worked just as strongly for known as for unknown items, suggesting that prior knowledge won’t prevent repetition from swaying our judgements of plausibility."

(Underlining mine)

"We," us, the good guys, never seem to catch on to that, yet it is obvious on a day-to-day basis that repetitive "impacts" are at the core of most advertising.

Due respect to Terry Terry Terry et. al., but I have a different theory.  I believe Dems often yell "RACISM/SEXISM/HOMOPHOBIA/etc." with no care at all of the veracity of the claim, but rather so that when they get to the next campaign, they can pull up the video, show it to the (insert race/gender/sexuality of the victimized persons of choice) .  Said politician can then say "look, I fight for you.  Donate to my re-election."  It's all a part of the theater we call Congress anymore.

T.O.M., I suspect we have interlocking theories here.

Sort of like the Combined Gas Laws of Boyle's Law (pressure and volume)  and Charles' Law (temperature and volume) put together.

And they say political science isn't a science.... tsk-tsk.

:rofl:

From what I can see, it comes up a lot in online arguments with some people.  If they are losing the argument or can't come up with a response, they fall back on insults which includes racism accusations.  It is already pretty meaningless in politics and becoming that way everywhere else as well.

House GOP Accidentally Releases Heap Of Hidden Messages On Conspiracy To Suppress Lab Leak Theory
https://www.dailywire.com/news/house-gop-accidentally-releases-heap-of-hidden-messages-on-conspiracy-to-suppress-lab-leak-theory

It appears one of the early reports issued that attempted to say COVID wasn't a lab leak included images of emails and communications that were cropped.  The complete images were still in the document and someone managed to pull them out.  Additional information shows they were deliberately trying to suppress the lab leak theory. 


Quote
The messages revealed in the report show that while the March 2020 research paper concluded that COVID-19 could not have come from a lab, the scientists who worked on the report appeared to intentionally mislead people over the plausibility of the lab leak hypothesis. The researchers wanted to avoid even the appearance that a Chinese lab may be implicated in the release of COVID-19.
