It’s a shame really, because I can’t think of any better way to spend a day than surrounded by anti-science dipshits who are going after the press because “OUR CIVIL LIBERTIES AND PARENTAL RIGHTS ARE UNDER ATTACK IN AMERICA” (!!!!)
IF you recognize that the corporate, mainstream media withholds the truth and no longer provides oversight to investigate government corruption…
IF you believe the health of Americans has been adversely affected by the media’s failure to publicize the truth about various toxins entering our air, water, food supplies and medicines…
IF you believe the press has failed the people by becoming nothing more than an instrument of government directed propaganda…
If I were a conspiracy-minded dolt I’d note the language used by the R4T people and the existence of an anti-vax president who hates the press and add another layer to my tinfoil hat.
On R4T’s call to action page, after yelling about Fake News and the press some more, they do mention Congress and
We are calling on our elected representatives in state legislatures and in Congress to protect our parental rights and civil liberties and to restore Truth, Integrity, and Transparency in Government agencies responsible for ensuring the public health and safety in America.
Still stupid and if they can get enough people to listen to them, dangerous. But less stupid than holding a march because news organizations haven’t sunk so low that they will repeat anti-vaccine rubbish as the unvarnished truth.
Fun fact – Eli Lilly, which is HQed in Mike Pence’s home state, developed Thiomersal.
