    "He could literally have corpses in his basement and I would not have cared!"

    This of course would be seen as a prime example of "Trump derangement" syndrome by conservatives like myself (Where a person literally is willing to put up with anything, just to have Trump out of office. Including not caring if the candidate your backing should be in a rest home.... )


    (I deleted the previous link because I thought I head someone use the F word, the link came from something called the Trigonometry broadcast which I assume is either something affiliated with Harris or maybe online atheists or Free Thought folks.)

    He admits there was a conspiracy to suppress negative information about Biden during the election and says it was justified.

    Yeah, I don't care about Hunter either. Now give me something concrete on Joe, then... it will properly feed into my Trump derangement syndrome.

    Yep heard that just a few minutes ago.

    Technically even Time magazine sort of acknowledged it in their big 2021 issue bragging about "fortifying the election".

    I think his main reason for never-Trump was Trump's participation in election-reversal attempts, which were really an attempt to stab the republic in the heart.

    It a reasonable argument for overlooking a lot of flaws in the opposition.

    He was talking about things that happened during the election, not January 6th.

    I recall Trump expressing resistance to any vote that didnt go his way prior to the election.

    "Stop the steal" was a plan, not a reaction.

    And suppressing negative stories about Biden during the election was a reality not Russian disinformation.

    Yes they did suppress neg stories on Hunter Biden.

    Hopefully they learn their lesson going forward and dont suppress tales of sons (in-law) cashing in from oppressive regimes.

    Probably any outlet a Trump supporter is likely to read.

    Literally what I’ve said for years leading up to the election. Hunter Biden could have killed a prostitute and Joe help bury the body and I’d still have voted for him to get Trump out of office. I have no qualms about that.

    Trump’s rhetoric and behavior before, during and after the election are what directly led to Jan 6.

    That may be but that's not what he was talking about. There was a successful effort by Biden, the media and the intelligence community to bury negative stories about Biden and promote the lie that it was Russian disinformation during the election and he is saying it was justified . According to your last post you probably think it was too.

    Sam Harris is an idiot. Just in general.

    The MSM & social media platforms did not hype the laptop story because it was and is majorly sus.

    I have reached that conclusion today! :)


    I think my first big clue was years ago an interview where he suggested that Science in future centuries would reveal to us all the mysteries of life. and included things ethics and other kinds of value judgement things.

    There is this classic textbook that you read as an undergraduate in the Social Sciences, that explains why that is impossible linked below in a pdf.

    https://sciencepolicy.colorado.edu/students/envs_5110/bronowski_1956.pdf


    But this made me think that he basically romanticized science and basically didn't understand what various undergraduate university students would have learned in their early classes. In my case it was a summer school class introduction to Behavioral Science research methods.

    Not to excuse the NY Times but it is a bit difficult to fault people for not taking reports of this seriously given the level of bizzare conspiracy theories supported by right wing media. Obama is a secret Muslim from Kenya. Hillary runs a pedophile ring from a pizza parlor. Trump actually won the election.
