Every time we point out an argument for the truth, we miss the point of the lie.

Gingrich & Ingraham:
"The idea that this was a coup or coup attempt or an insurrection, very briefly why is that spurious claim on its face?" she asked.

Gingrich, red-faced said. "It's not."


This happens 24/7. It has to, because the point is to get the lie/message to their base.

Lying on the right has never been more prevalent or blatant.

1. Yeah, the lies from prominent people/media don't convince anyone, they give them permission.

Permission to act as if the falsehood were true, permission to repeat the falsehood without embarrassment, permission to deny reality because the cognitive dissonance is too uncomfortable otherwise.

2. And I think a strategy is required to push back.

So often we expose it, dismiss it, move on to the next one. We aren't doing enough.
