Both left & right use spurious logic

Why does the alt-right dislike the Jedi?

On 2 October 2021, rightwing media darling Steve Bannon was quoted by Yahoo News. In the article, he called for “shock troops” to quickly “deconstruct” the state as soon as a Republican takes the Oval Office again. If this sounds like random crazy times, you are half right.

I guess you can make this stuff up

Oh, NPR. You are the station I love to hate, and hate to love. I listen copiously to your programs, some of which are good. But I will never donate to you.
