Update: Mighty fine reviews on the YouToobage.
While wading through the LGF Archives for something entirely unrelated, I found this tidbit, and it’s somewhat relevant to current events.
Charles was referring to some people (and Jenny McCarthy in particular) who erroneously believe measles vaccines cause autism in children. Besides having to explain herd immunity to the unwashed lizards, he proves that he doesn’t know diddly about the Dark Ages, and seems to think that vaccines were available in that era.
“Some English historians will say if there is any kind of
‘Dark Ages’ in medieval history, it is during the earliest part of the Middle Ages, right after the fall of Roman power in Britain around the fifth and sixth centuries. Its a period that has few surviving written sources, so we don’t know very much about what happened then.”
That’s the generally accepted definition of “The Dark Ages,” a period in medieval times that have few written records, but you all knew that. I noticed that Charles refers to them often, and usually out of context, so perhaps a visual exhibit might be in order:
Recently, Jim Hoft / The Gateway Pundit revealed what most of us already knew: Fact Checkers are biased rumpswabs, and he posted several examples in a post entitled
Bogus Fact-Check Site Used by Google Lists All Conservative Outlets as “Low Credibility” – But Lists All Far Left and Liberal Mainstream Outlets as High Credibility
Fact-checking is an imminent necessity because “you’re not intelligent enough to adequately read, research and or rationalize for yourself,” the socialist arbiters of truth proclaim, “so, you must rely on us to filter out the ‘fake news.’”
MediaBIasFactCheck.com, is a fact-checking [site] that prides itself as “the most comprehensive media bias resource in the Internet,” despite being run by an owner who was previously exposed for misleadingly claiming to be a journalist.
Besides his own site, he lists several other prominent conservative websites rated as “untrustworthy” including Breitbart, Daily Mail, The Federalist and Project Veritas, He follows up with the ratings for a handful of left-wing sites, and as expected, the reviews are all positive. But Hoft missed one.
Thread downstairs was getting kinda full. Had to do something about it.
Charles says, “Yikes.”
The most important thing noticed by the Magical Jazzy Covid Detector last night was:
“What is this weird sensation I’m feeling? I haven’t felt this in so long, I forget what it’s called.” – Charles JohnsonPosted: August 21, 2020
Charles “updated” his profile image and no one gave a foster, but he wanted to be sure we didn’t miss it. We noticed that someone had messed with it to mask the photogrodys, so we restored it to something closer to reality and gave it our best shot at a worthless mark.
We couldn’t get the suet pallor quite right, and he still appears a bit narrower in the neck department than in real life – not that he has either one. The un-enhancement indicates some semblance of a ponytail (judging from the terrified stray grays flailing against the hidden scrunchie sucked up tight to his no-neck on the right). Crack spackle hides the pumas in his crevasses.
His head was likely not vertical either: his torso would have been leaning backwards and no chair back could take that kind of abuse for long.
Got bored of that non-project real fast, but a dark mockery oozed from behind the rec room couch, from under the cat stuff, and whispered, “What’s behind the mask?”
