One of the fallacies about the mainstream media is the notion it always has and should be nonpartisan. History shows newspapers long resembled the modern cable news landscape, as evidenced by the events leading up to the Civil War.

At the time of the 1860 presidential campaign, there were more than 4,000 newspapers spread across the United States and its continental territories. Major cities had multiple competing papers, created and crafted to convey strong political views. Any idea of fairness didn’t exist as two newspapers would portray the same political events starkly different.

What is different is social media has a monopoly and is banning free speech. That is very unhealthy and will lead to the disaster i was talking about that got me an email saying I was making threats. 74 million people are already mad about the stolen election and now the beast wants to silence them.

So you want the majority to cow tow to the minority? Makes a lot of sense in Rudy’s new math class.

You are a part of the problem and can't even see it. You live in Texas, part of the republic, maybe we should ask you the same question.

Bulldog, spin it as you like. There is a difference between warning there would be an armed uprising and suggesting there should be. You crossed that line. That's why your comments were taken down.

You lie. I never said nor did I infer there should be.

I was talking about my comment that was deleted about a certain someone laughing about people dying in the streets.

Still no worse than what Maxine Waters and Kabala Harris have said.
