that is ok as i was told this is freedom of speech even if it is spam. but here around the people are more republican friendly so it is accepted. also that is a reason why i troll the republicans here. not because i think democrats would be better. just to shake a bit their blind belief in politicians and make the forums less homogenic.

Topic: Ilhan Omar DID marry her brother
Post: post 8422580
Reason: Another disgusting alt-right smear spreading in OTW.

https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/07/ilhan-omar-brother-marriage-smear/

Disgusting, perhaps. Alt-right... is apparently being misused in this context. Smear rather depends on whether it is factually accurate, and there is actual evidence for it, including her own comments on the matter. One of the nice things about OTW is that things tend to not spread, until someone decides to make a crusade out of stopping the spread of things that they dislike and thereby signs up for a personal tutorial on the streisand effect.

Still, there are some comments in that topic that go a bit farther than I would prefer, and an eye will be kept on it. -- desultory


"including her own comments on the matter." - I think you need to recalibrate your BS-o-meter...

Another case for closing down OTW for the public.

Changing your "facts" over time it typically taken as evidence that at least some of those "facts" are not actually factual. As such, her own comments over time can indeed be reasonably considered as evidence that some false statements were made regarding the situation in question, and that false statements were made about it opens the question of which statements were indeed false, thereby providing a degree of evidence to argue against the veracity of any and all statements she has made about that situation. Evidence is just that; evidence, not proof. -- desultory

The link you provided (from Mother Jones no less :lol: ) is from 2019. The news report I linked in the OP is from this month.

Research before reporting things that bother you politically.

No, it is not. Read the link in the OP.
