What Fresh Hell Is This?

Stephen Colbert On Pizzagate



A few takeaways:
  • On Mike Flynn, Trump's choice for national security advisor, who was found to have tweeted on #pizzagate - a tweet that began with a "U decide", Colbert says: "OK, then I decide that a guy who spreads this bullshit shouldn’t be in charge of national security."
  • And then, after demolishing any possible explanation of #pizzagate other than it's complete conspiracy theory bullshit, he ends with, "Look around the country. Wouldn’t you agree we need some more adults? So WikiLeaks, Alex Jones, and the subreddit sub-geniuses—and I mean this in the nicest way possible: grow the fuck up."
FYI - Right now, Alex Jones has this on his website:
This is a red level emergency.

Infowars, Breitbart, the Drudge Report and other independent sources are destroying the mainstream media narrative like never before, and the establishment is getting desperate.

In an effort to try and censor the liberty movement and free speech, the mainstream media is now attempting to label legitimate news sources like Infowars as "fake news" to push towards a government-led shut down of Infowars.com.

The Washington Post has even gone as far as to label sites like Infowars as "Russian propaganda fake news" web sites, exemplifying the last attempt of a dying media conglomerate to force out any and all dissenting voices.

Even more concerning, the United States House of Representatives quietly passed legislation targeting 'Russian propaganda' websites.
I wonder if Jones means H.R. 5181, the "Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016" - but that can't possibly be the case, because Jones said that The House "quietly passed" the legislation and H.R. 5181 was only introduced in the house. 

Last May.

But what the heck, we live in a post-fact world now, right?

But even if it isn't that legislation, look at what Alex Jones is saying: that the MAJORITY REPUBLICAN, TEA-PARTY CONTROLLED House of Representatives is quietly looking to shut down Infowars, Breitbart and the Drudge Report.

And you believe that (or any of the other conspiracy theories floating around right wing media), you need to GROW THE FUCK UP.
