The Biden administration: lying with impunity

The Biden administration: lying with impunity. By Neo.

Commenter “physicsguy” writes of the Biden administration, the Democrats, and the left as a whole:

It is rather amazing to take an objective view and watch what is happening: Install a puppet as president through massive voting fraud. Then use the puppet as a means to initiate all the programs. The puppet can also distract from the real agenda by the comical bumbling that the puppet displays.

Blatantly lie about everything, and keep repeating all the lies; no need to worry as the MSM is in their corner. An example: Raggedy Ann saying no need to be concerned with the vaccination status of all those streaming across the border as most of them will not be staying in the US, all the while shipping them all off to various US cities. Such a laughable lie, but never challenged.

They really have totally won, and continue to consolidate their power. …

 

 

If the media would just do their job of reporting, instead of promoting the ruling class (the left) by all means possible, this could not happen. As if …

So what are the lies for, if not to persuade?

They are meant to give the already-convinced – the Democratic rank-and-file voter – their ready-made excuses for not paying attention to whatever objections the right may make or point out.

The Democratic voter can shrug off any concerns they themselves may have, too, in a shallow and facile way. They also give the many pundits on the left their talking points, and if the talking heads on TV and the columnists hammer them home enough, the repetition makes the lies sound more like truths. After all, if all these smart people agree, who is the listener to differ?

Lastly, these lies have a function that is similar to what was going on with the Soviets — the lie as mockery and insult and sadistic tease. In that regard, obvious lying is a feature, not a bug, and it helps that the lie is absurd. It’s a show of power meant for the opposition to view, a way to say, “we can state any stupidity we want as truth, things both you and I know are ridiculous, and will we say it with a straight face to illustrate the extent of our power over you. We don’t have to pretend to make sense. We’re in control and you’re not. We are laughing at you.”

That’s the point we have reached.

Banned Lizard:

Allowing election fraud to stand eliminates accountability, and results in unlimited dishonesty and corruption. With no accountability, lies and fraud activities inevitably become clownishly absurd. The term “clown world” is trending lately.

MBunge:

On a practical level, this stuff shouldn’t make you angrier with Biden, the Democrats, the Left, or the traditional media. It should make you angrier with everyone in the GOP, the conservative movement, and conservative media who openly welcomed or promoted Biden as the alternative to Trump. You should be particularly outraged and intolerant of those expressing dismay or alarm over Biden but who refuse to say these simple words: “I was wrong. We would have been better off with Trump.”
