Did I say I believed in any of this? No.

Do I think pedophiles exist? Yes.

Would they use coded language like drug dealers to plan their activities? Yes.

Is Podesta involved in garbage like this? I don't know. But he is into some weird shit.


Classic smear, with extra ass-covering.

"Did you ever notice how Podesta acts like a pedophile? I'm not saying he is a pedophile, because that would be irresponsible. I'm just saying he acts like one."

I foolishly watched that video and if that's the best evidence they have there is no conspiracy, just people typing poorly.

There is plenty of wacky stuff in and around the Podesta's shown in Wikileaks which can be summarized simply with this video:

It is not at all hard to run with the ball and draw conclusions with what information is provided...

But the wealthy elitists have long been vain and so drunk with power as to never think that they may ever be held accountable to the laws that coerce the lower classes. They can practice whatever they wish with no repercussions (ask Hillary Clinton), so why the big charade? Even the catholic church did not have to go to such lengths!

You stupid bag of shit. I posted this link on the 23rd of November. These rumors were circulating a week before the election. It was not until the 21st of November that the Nytimes article was written. This was the first time I saw a major news source "debunk" this story. And by debunk they just called it "fake news" without providing proof of anything.

Still nobody has explained why Podesta and his friends use a code to speak. They could be simply talking about bribes they had received. It seems nobody in the MSM wants to investigate this story at all. Maybe the MSM should do their fucking job and explain to people the contents of these emails?

You really are a worthless cunt with a very closed mind.


I gotta say, I can't remember the last time I was quite this happy to be personally disliked by someone.

I'd missed this awesomeness.

You're insulating yourself about having to question other stories.

It's ... well I was gonna say it was brilliant, but it's actually really really stupid.

Trying to assure that you can safely continue to believe your crappy news sources is probably the most 2016 RSP Conservative thing ever.

To me, fake news is an Onion article where they completely make some shit up to be well, fake.

But the story in questions is purported to be true by those who wrote it. Now maybe the story is bullshit, maybe it's not. I mean it's probably bullshit to smear the Clinton's but unless we have proof it's fake can we call this fake news? Seems like the term alleged or unsubstantiated seem more appropriate.

Ok if I haven't lost you, hear me out. My concern is the main stream media or the government using this term to smear any "news story" as fake which leads to some 1st amendment issues.

Yes today this is an anti-clinton piece but plenty of unsubstantiated anti-Trump stories going around too. I'm probably not making sense, I'm sick and feel like shit warmed over so I am definitely not at my most eloquent. But I am concerned how this will be the new way to discredit any story that "the powers that be" don't want to get out. That's all well and good when it's against the other side but what happens when things flip in a few years (or a few months when "Trumpler" comes to power and he becomes the powers that be?


Well, most people on Team R don't care about reality already, so I think we're already there.

I do think that in a world in which a significant percentage of people get their news from super questionable sources that don't do any kind of research and really by and large just make shit up and post it on Facebook or on Reddit or on 4Chan, it's good that the media is actually just reporting it as fake and nonsense, not going with the "well some people say" for utterly unverified claims/stories.

I think them doing that is going to continue to be important during the trump admin, for example the "millions of fake votes" claim. That was just a lie, and I was happy to see the media not beating around the bush and just saying "there's no basis in reality for the president-elect's statement."

Dumbasses spreading fake news causing violence? You mean like "Hands up, don't shoot"?



Yes, that is an example of the media contradicting a popular narrative.

That said, that's not really "fake news" in that the claim was based on a "real" if false or incorrect witness statement, whereas Pizzagate is based on a bunch of "shit posters and meme magic masters" or whatever fucking nonsense the garbage humans on 4chan are using to identify themselves now just making things up in a massive circle jerk of non-information.

We can discuss whether the term is overapplied, but its original definition is really strict; sites that spread knowingly incorrect (and often salacious) stories in order to bait clicks for ad revenue... especially with a desire to leverage social media.

We can discuss whether you include propaganda sources like the RT in 'fake news' or not. I probalby would. The intent is different but the means are the same.

Well, there's one good thing about fake news: it eventually comes out as being fake. But by then, people seem to not care. I mean, look at Koldie and his reaction. "It turns out it wasn't true, but when it came out, it may have been true. So the fact that it ended up not being true is less important than the fact that it MIGHT have been true before it was proven that it wasn't."

Seriously, I do not want to be included on Schroedinger's Newsfeed.
