Wackos

Sanders supporters were classified as wackos by a guest on Morning Joe. Good morning fellow wackos. As a converted Republican I am enjoying watching MSNBC. It is far more thoughtful than what I used to watch. But I have been surprised to see how much they seem to marginalize Bernie.

I have been called one for quite some time!
The thing is, they know that I am much smarter than they are.
Though they may be for more popular things, I have always been one who is for things that are correct in the future.
This is what matters.
They called Galileo a wacko.
They called Newton a wacko.
They called Einstein a wacko.
They called Howard Zinn a wacko.
They call Noam Chomsky a wacko.
I rest my case!

to join with you guys. You are far from Wacko. You are right. I have become a person who admires Progressives and now consider myself one as well. I have been so impressed with the people I have met on here. I have not had one person question my sincerity rather I have been encouraged and supported in my journey from one way of looking at the world to the way I am now.

You only need to take a look at Chomsky's 5 filters of "propaganda model."
Lefties are wackos to them -the real ones, not the limousine liberals like the talking heads on MSNBC.
Just the fact that they're still on Comcast payroll is a proof that they're not talking about things that actually matter. Cuz if you do, then you're out the door.
