New York Times Publishes (and Then Retracts) The Left-Wing Conspiracy Theory That Palestinian Government Payment to Terrorists' Families is Just a Right-Wing Conspiracy Theory

Really.

They corrected this, allowing that the Palestinian Authority really does pay the families of murderous terrorists.

How did it see print in the first place?

9 How many other facts do the MFM dismiss as right-wing conspiracy theories?

Read an article yesterday where a "school official" dismissed the idea that the PROMISE program let minority kids escape discipline for bad behavior as a "right-wing conspiracy theory." Even though, that's the exact thing the PROMISE program does.

Meanwhile there is a conspiracy theory that former heads of the FBI are trying to destroy Trump, breaking down doors of his lawyer even, and leaking confidential files all over the MFM. What will these crazy people think of next (conspiracy theorists I mean, cuz NYSlimes is "the paper of record", who you gonna believe, the printed word or your own lying eyes?)

Honorable people will always give people the benefit of the doubt, as to honor.

People ALWAYS think they are normal... that what they do is the norm....

78 imo they are not blind to realities such as this ... they deliberately print lies and propaganda. To them it is a contest to defeat traditional America, and they've decided if that means "impeaching the witnesses" then so be it. They tell bold lies and then (maybe) a correction that the masses never see.

They prefer to maintain an air of fairness and superiority, but that is part of their game. They are willing to see murder of opponents even, not just invading Trump's lawyers or telling half-truths (i.e. careful lies). But stealth is the secret to their success, just as the Soviets invaded by infiltration and engineered psychological warfare.

85 Speaking of left-wing conspiracy theories:

In a conversation with a liberal friend the other day, the topic of "gendered toys" came up -- i.e. boys playing with toy soldiers and footballs, and girls playing with dolls, etc. -- and he just casually said, as if it was so obviously and automatically true that it didn't even need mentioning, "But of course gender roles are a social construct."

For some reason, I just lost my temper (something I almost never do), and barked at him, "Oh come on! You know that's not true. There IS such a thing as human nature, and boys tend to be more violent and risk-taking, and girls more nuturing and loving. That's not just some 'social construct,' it's in our genes. Every culture in the world has toy weapons for boys, not because there' a vast patriarchal conspiracy the brainwash boys into being violent, but because that's what little boys want." I continued my tirade by citing all sorts of examples from social experiments.

He was stunned, and a bit flabbergasted -- not because he disagreed with me, but because he had never even heard this "opposing" viewpoint. Like most liberals, he just marinated in leftist conspiracy theories 24 hour a day for his whole life, to the point he doesn't even know they're conspiracy theories - -he just thinks they're self-evidently true.

98 It was a very hard lesson for me to learn... but...

Liars are the first to call others liars.
Cheaters will be the first to accuse of cheating...

Honorable people will always give people the benefit of the doubt, as to honor.

People ALWAYS think they are normal... that what they do is the norm....

Thus, thieves think everyone steals... because they do...

Those who cheat on Spouses? will tell you everyone cheats...

I got burned a number of times by trusting people WAYYYYY too much.... I am now much sadder, but wiser...

Posted by: Don Q. at April 24, 2018 02:52 PM (NgKpN)

Yes. People often (perhaps universally) ascribe to a group of people the mindset and perspective of their own. I have caught myself doing it numerous times. It is the base truth in the maxim that liberals are always projecting.

It pays dividends to see what the left is up to, when they accuse the right of something, because, of course, they are too worldly to believe that they could be subject to such blind spots.

Look up the Liverpool Care Pathway policy, that encouraged doctors to kill (via palliative care instead of treatment) old people they decided were beyond help without having to consult with or inform the patient's family.

That was going on for years. Worse, hospital administrators were given LCP quotas, and if these quotas were exceeded, they were given cash bonuses. Cash bonuses for killing/not treating more people.

NHS has been sick for a while.

As of last Friday, Danica's cancer had not returned and her immune system had improved enough that she could leave the hospital and run around town with her Mom, Dad and big brother.

She continues on chemo and radiation. With luck and all of your prayers (thank you) she may be out of the woods pretty soon.

God Bless You All.

168 He was stunned, and a bit flabbergasted -- not because he disagreed with me, but because he had never even heard this "opposing" viewpoint. Like most liberals, he just marinated in leftist conspiracy theories 24 hour a day for his whole life, to the point he doesn't even know they're conspiracy theories - -he just thinks they're self-evidently true.

And when I read things like that... I take it as a cautionary tale. Where am I doing this? What have I taken for granted and always assumed because I just have heard it and never questioned?

169 o lock away ammo store does not have spots on the
shelves for. One of the new rounds is .224 Valkyrie. And later that
night a customer buying rounds for his Polish Moisin-Nagant asked if we
had any .224 since he is building a rifle for that caliber.

What is the .224 Valkyrie and why?

I prefer the term "savages". An animal simply kills on instinct, and virtually always with a biologically logical purpose (to respond to a threat, for food, for control of reproduction etc).

As I see it, a savage is a human who knows the difference between good and evil, and chooses evil, killing for reasons that aren't always logical.

They did lay off a bunch, yes. But newspapers never used to need them, editors were smart and cynical enough to question things and demand proof before going to print.

And the reporters themselves weren't fresh out of kollidge the indoctrination centers, either. They were older and knew something about the world they were reporting on.

241 I'll see your 7.62x39 Uncle Palp, and raise you a 7.62x51.

Who am I kidding ? 7.62x39 is a fine round. Hell ... they're ALL fine rounds. Just gotta' pick what you like.

Or, in many of our cases, which several you like.

But if I can grab only one ... I'm grabbing the Springfield M1A, 7.62x51.

243 214 Poor grammar aside, Kanye is not our friend, at least until he tells Kim to lay off the cosmetic surgery. She looks like a goddamned mannequin. In fact they all do Chloe, Kylie, Kourtney...friggin robots. Or maybe they ARE robots? Maybe Kanye is a robot on the fritz! That would explain alot!

246 from the viewpoint of the NHS, Alfie has to die."

Nah, not really.

They just don't care. Period. They're lords over the general population, so they give less thought than a rancher does over his cattle.

The days of them fearing the population at large are long past...

247 235 226 That's the way it worked on Superman. If Clark Kent or Lois Lane stumbled upon some "scoop", Perry White would tell them he would not run with it unless they had absolute proof.

They would then go and get Jimmy Olsen to get some pictures and come back with the proof the Chief needed to run the story.

The good old days indeed.........

251 Mark Twain once said that a man who does not read the newspaper is ill-informed, and the man who does is misinformed.

More true today than ever. The man was a prophet.

252 Before Israel's independence, if someone was called a Palestinian, he was a Jew who was born when in Israel while it was under the Palestine mandate. You can see this in Exodus, where Paul Newman is said to be a Palestinian. Arabs there were just called arabs, sometimes distinctions made for Bedouins They made up the name "Palestinian" back in 1964, when Jordan controlled the West Bank.

He also happened to have taken a trip to the Holy Land and Syria in the 1860s and wrote about it - Innocents Abroad, I think it was - and he described how desolate it was, along with a few barbarians here and there.

If you're going to pull a stunt like this, you need to be careful.

Completely ignoring the fact that there are bad people in the world, even in groups you find favorable, is stupid.

Of course, no one is calling this woman smart...

Is there any hope for their future, or are they condemned to publish fake news forever?
