Thom Hartmann needs to shove this in Julio's face!

I love Thom’s show but he invites this guest Julio on now and again and the guy is just a blathering idiot that spews a bunch of nonsense. This week he was on blathering about inflation and why Biden is failing on the economy.

Thom PLEASE stop having this guy on. He disrespects you every time and he just tries to yell over you linking incoherent thoughts one after another.

And Julio does the thing all the RWNJs do and keeps changing the subject to keep the talking points flowing before they can be refuted.

I don't know the date of this screen grab but notice the news crawling across the bottom of the screen. While you listen to Them, you saw RusProp and it entered your brain, whether you know it or not.

What about his content leads you to believe that he shouldn’t be trusted?

If he says "they never controlled the show", that is a red herring.

Lets say you start watching Hartmann on the network, then one day you don't turn the channel after he's gone but you watch for a few hours. A few stories about how nice putin is and that he's been misrepresented by American media later and you have questioned the truth and are siding with Russia-Prop.

The crazy Q people didn't start with Q. They started with things that people agree with and then gradually march to the extremes. The anti-vax moms who are now on Q didn't start that way. They started with concerns about thimerasol (the preservative that they said caused autism). Now they are amongst the most batshit crazy. I hav a friend that is taking ivermectin. He didn't start off as a crazy. His wife started dabbling in homeschool social media, then a little more anti vax stuff slides in. Now they are dead to me and if the horse dewormer doesn't work, dead to the world.

You don't play with enemy propaganda and Russia is most definitely our enemy. You don't cash paychecks from our enemy.

Propaganda is sneaky and dangerous. You don't mess with it even a little. Anyone who fucks with Russia-prop made a bad choice and shouldn't be trusted.
