Reminds me of this:I think it's pretty scary how much righteous zeal platforms like Twitter, Reddit, and 4chan can engender. There is instant access to ego soothing. Somehow the right has capitalized on the notion that mainstream media is intentionally suppressing facts that don't fit a leftist narrative. The capitalization isn't toward healthy skepticism but rather to create a bias where someone telling you what you want to hear is seen as credible on that very basis. This phenomenon is not so simple as a loosening of the need for reliable sourcing. It is a paradoxic support for unreliable sourcing as more valid, and this article highlights one of the projective mechanisms used to ward off awareness of this reality. This is a power in numbers phenomenon, except numbers aren't number of individuals, it's number of posts. In this day and age, a vocal minority can wield enormous influence over the masses without being seen as a minority.
Amazing isn't it? How a fake person can say the exact same things the people that created the fake person claims they say on a daily basis.
Same as "racist" , "fascist" and "white nationalist" that get slung around with abandon for anyone to the right of Hillary Clinton.
nope, just the ones actually acting like nazis, repeating their ideologies, etc.
Or maybe it's just appropriate label people according to their actions.
Like how you label anyone to left of you as "socialist," "communist," "automaton," etc. But that's okay of course, right? It's only wrong when "leftists" do it..Same as "racist" , "fascist" and "white nationalist" that get slung around with abandon for anyone to the right of Hillary Clinton.
Hey, stop that! You're hurting his feelings by holding him accountable for he voluntarily associates with, and shares a political agenda with! That makes you the real nazi!nope, just the ones actually acting like nazis, repeating their ideologies, etc.
aka, in trump-speak, 'very fine people'
Did you read the article? If you did you would have realized that the article was a heads up for everyone so that the "movement" can be ignored because it's simply yet another troll for the right.Oh? But the OP cited the NYT and the BBC.
Something tells me social media matters to people.
