Reality isn't optional, Dems!
Love your show, but really disappointed in MSNBC's support of cancellation culture (of people whose "crime" is to have been associated via work to people behaving badly). Anyway, doesn't it worry science-supporting people (like yourself) that Dems increasingly support the idea that reality is optional (which is one of the main ingredients in the recipe for a totalitarian state)? This is not only a disastrous (obviously) policy, but it will also cost them zillions of votes. Dems claim to support science, but the gender (there are only 31 genders in NY) equality bill the House passed today is a non-reality based legislation. You can't have it both ways. I promise this will soon be coming to a reality near you: “Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID) is a condition w/ there is mismatch between mental body image and physical body. Subjects have intense desire to amputate a major limb or sever the spinal cord...to become paralyzed. The main rationale...is to “feel complete or to feel satisfied inside...their “body-image does not match with their body shape”...they want to “establish their “true identity...I felt like I was in the wrong body—that I am only complete with both my arm and leg off on the right side.”
BIID is a neuropsychological disturbance that includes missing insight into the illness and a specific lack of autonomy...a brain disorder producing a disruption of the body image...BIID support groups explain desire for amputation in analogy to desire of transsexuals for surgical sex reassignment.”
The researchers who wrote this have probably been stoned to death by transgender activists, whose violent extremism and bullying of people who don't share their beliefs should disgust and worry every sane person.
Waste of time if you put Trump allies on the commission. They will be so loud and ridiculous, that only Democrats will understand what really happened, and we already know. It’s the Dictatorial Party that needs to see the truth. Of course the Russian channels will tell them what they are supposed to believe. Don’t understand why the FCC can’t do something about the propaganda. I believe in free speech, but there should be a limit.
Down to you and Brian Williams
I have cut back on the number of news commentary podcasts I listen to regularly. Your coverage is as balanced as it gets on MSNBC. Thanks for keeping us informed!
