It's like watching two toddlers argue astrophysics

Not really, but this video is not as sophisticated as Doug In Exile would have you believe. Yes, there's some good things to note but it's not quite great. Watching a conversation between John Fetterman and Bill Maher is a different thing than it would have been even four years ago. Four years ago it would have been mind numbingly painful, but now it's tolerable.  Don't be mistaken; neither man is about the to jump sides and become a Republican (and probably not even an independent) because the Democrat party has gone full-tilt, off-the-map crazy.  

They are entrenched. Dave Rubin thinks Bill Maher will wake up and see the light one day, drop his Trump Derangement Syndrome and become a conservative. He truly believes Maher is on the edge of doing that. It's not gonna happen.  Maher has some common sense but he still suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome. He still believes Democrats are the party of liberty.  He doesn't believe the radical elements represent the majority of the party.  They are a lunatic fringe in his mind.  On Megyn Kelly he outright denied that Hillary Clinton has been an election denier since 2016 - despite the video evidence otherwise. If he hasn't come around by now, he won't.  He's in too deep to realize he's buying garbage and being told it's gold.  

A lot of people, including Doug In Exile in the video below,  think Fetterman will leave the Democrats. It's not going to happen unless the Democrats end up kicking him out of the party. There's been a lot of talk about Fetterman turning more conservative since he had a stroke. There's several data points showing that to be true. But I don't think he's likely to "leave the plantation", he's more likely to stick it out and try to win from the inside of the democrat tent.  The strategy is doomed to fail, but I'm not opposed to him trying. As is mentioned by Doug In Exile in the video below, the more infighting among Democrats, the better. Democrat disunity and division is definitely a winning formula for conservatives. The longer it goes on, the better.

The whole video is a good watch. At 3:47, Doug In Exile starts making some fantastic points about the left.  They wrap themselves in terms that in action, they actually oppose.

The January 6th Committee coverup

The January 6th committee was designed to get Trump, just like the NY felony case, and the Georgia case, and the civil case, and... you get the point.  In each of those cases the attitude has been "justice be damned, we want to get Trump so he can't win re-election".

But as we have known for years, Pelosi was culpable. Trump was not.  The truth will come out eventually.

Was Karl Marx an atheist or something worse?

Jordan Peterson and Paul Kengor discuss whether Karl Marx was not an atheist but rather a satanist. My take is that it doesn't really matter which one Karl Marx was, his effects on the world were both radical and evil.

Terrorists flooding in

Open borders will eventually lead to tragedy. Glad they caught these guys, but they can't (and by choice, won't) check everyone, so they won't catch and stop every potential terrorist. Let's Go Brandon is letting ISIS into America. Insanity.

DEI down in flames?

The reason DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) is bad is simple.  Diversity of skin color, or religion, or gender, or ethnicity, is not true diversity; diversity of thought is true diversity.  Equity is an amorphous word; equality of opportunity but equity or equality of outcome, is communism. It's anti-progress. And Inclusion can mean anything you want it to mean, which is exactly why we have trans women competing in women's sports. DEI leads to bad outcomes.

I'm all for equality of opportunity, equality in education quality, but not equality of outcome.  I want the best players on my baseball team, not the best players who tick certain ethnic/gender/color/religious boxes. I want the most qualified pilot flying my plane, not the most inclusive-centric pilot.

DEI will eventually collapse in on itself.  Does this development mean it's happening? Not yet, but this helps.
