Theocrats vs Plutocrats - pick your preferred mode of oppression based on allegiances in Culture War. Both include heavy structural racism, sexism, and classism while the Theocrats offer the added bonus of religious persecution and sexual subjugation. I await your add-ons.

I think it's easier for people to believe in mere media bias confined to the backrooms of MSM than to accept that the US is simply, at its core, a deeply sick and racist nation.
Of the 710 Natives who went missing in Wyoming between 2011 and 2020, 57% were female and 85% were children — You would’ve known this had the mainstream media did its job with more inclusivity.

Strip the ACLU of its fraudulent 501(c)3 status. Then de-fund and dismantle it. Then prosecute the criminals running it.

The difference in writing level between news sources often said to be left leaning (so most MSM sources) and conservative websites never ceases to amaze me.

Wikipedia is the greatest source of collective knowledge we've ever had. And yes, I will die defending this hill (unless a greater source comes along).
Just blew someone's mind by tell them that wikipedia is a better source of information than google. Information literacy efforts ongoing.
