Ideological propaganda thrives in a confirmation bias...

I always find it interesting how partisan propagandists use a confirmation bias to argue bullshit.

Like this piece of manipulative dreck from Boing Boing:

One company bought all the retail outlets for glasses, used that to force sales of all the eyewear companies and jacked up prices by as much as 1000%

Yes, companies have been doing that for decades in the US. A responsible outlet would note that, but then the propaganda faucet gets turned on:

This is a good example of how decades of far-right ideologically driven antitrust malpractice has hurt everyone. After all, glasses aren't just a fashion item: they're a necessity for people with poor vision, a prerequisite for driving, walking, cycling, reading, getting an education or doing your job.

No, that is not an example — good or bad — of “far-right ideologically-driven” anything.

Because you had left-winged presidents in there for a total of what — sixteen years since Ronald Reagan?

Neither one of those presidents bothered with countering that “far-right ideologically-driven” problem. They left it alone.

Motherfucker, that is simply how that country rolls, whether it rolls to the right or left.

So that’s on all of you.

You are not better than your “far-right” fellow citizens. That narrative you are puking is a pure bullshit story.

Stop gaslighting people as you are trying to throw half your country under a bus, blaming them for everything as you take responsibility for nothing. It doesn’t matter who is elected president on the left or right.

The rich stay rich.

The poor stay poor.

And the middle class stay oblivious as they look to blame everyone else except themselves…
