Tell the truth

There are millions of people who believe in an alternate reality. Sunrise or sunset? Without context you really cannot tell. Day or night? The NY Times feels compelled to fact check the Republicans. There are many lies. Why? I would let the Republicans pass on the fake (news) NYT. BUT! Then why are the late night hosts having such a field day!? The RNC and their speakers have provided much fodder for ridicule with their lies. There seems to be enough context to tell truth from lies. It’s a new day coming.

  1. ….repeating lies ad nauseum makes the ignorant accept that they must be true and makes the vigilant eventually give up and just roll their eyes because there are too many to try and countermand. This Republican convention week is not just scary in its Ministry of Truth-isms; it so skillfully creates an alternate reality–which social media so easily verifies and validates–that I do now lament over and fear for the future of the republic. Even if Joe wins, he’ll face such vitriol and hatred, things will come apart at the seams and the country will schism. I left in 1968 when at age 20 I thought the nation was coming apart. But this? This is an even darker time.
