Had to face reality and delete the "America's Best Pics/Vids" app

from my phone. It seemed when I started using it that there was a somewhat small portion of the meme pics and vids were political (maybe 20-25%). Those leaned toward the right, but there were plenty of pro dem, progressive and pro Biden memes, too. The app has evolved into a full-throated cesspool of pro-tfg, pro rw conspiracy theory, anti Biden, anti-Clinton, anti-Pelosi & anti-Obama bullshit.

I can appreciate clever, satirical political memes and commentary, even from folks that have views to the right of mine. But now, the right wing zealots have taken over this app (and others I'm sure) and only sling total shit.

Almost all of it is wholly made up, pulled out of their asses tripe originating from oath fuckers, mommy's basement and/or a russian troll pit! They now put out the most vile, crude and demeaning posts. It all seems to be based on 1-"what can we put out there that will get our gullible rubes all pissed off?," and 2-"what pure shit will these pissed off gullible rubes believe?" Sadly, we now have something like a quarter of our voting population that really believes!

There is not much left of a mainstream GOP in political circles... at least not many that are willing to stand up and we know who those are.

What these motherfuckers have done will only get harder to overcome.
