If you thought you’d heard all of the bizarre and absurd conspiracy theories Republicans have to offer instead of facts, something Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said Sunday during an appearance on Fox News is proof-positive that the GOP is quite literally grasping at straws when it comes to finding ways to attack President Joe Biden.
“You know it’s getting bad when the propaganda machine that the Democratic socialists control in this country — they control 95% of the media or so. And then you take the big tech oligarchs that control and censor what we receive via social media. When that poison gets to the average independent American, that propaganda, you know it’s bad when they can’t even find a 15- or 30-second soundbite out of a full-hour town hall that they can plug into their own propaganda machine.”
That’s not only odd, it’s also not the least bit factual. CNN has shown numerous clips from the town hall that was held in Cincinnati, and many of them dealt with the newest wave of hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 among unvaccinated Americans.
But Nunes was just getting warmed up, and he went full tinfoil hat crazy with what he said next:
“I mean, it’s getting really bad. It’s not just the president. They can’t get any soundbites from the vice president either.
“(It’s) almost to the point where they’re going to have to start using computer-generated graphics in order to give to the propaganda machine because they can’t get good clips to sell what they’re trying to sell here in Washington, which are policies that are running the country into the ground.”
That is some industrial-strength paranoia right there. Poor Devin must have hit his head and rattled loose the few brain cells he still has in his noggin.
