Just remember, anybody who doesn't want to go to war is gay.

I'm curious how they'll roll out the social part of the propaganda.

You realize the Trump administration is pushing for an armed conflict, not the DPRK?

I've already read a half dozen articles about how a pre-emptive strike is (not) necessary. Whether the articles are for or against, the fact that they are talking about it is evident that they want the american public to become comfortable with the idea; it is a stepping stone toward actually getting it done. Sooner or later the hard rhetoric will start in Congress, and then they're going make a push to dupe the american people into thinking they actually wanted this all along. It is precisely what they tried and failed during Vietnam and the second Iraq War.

It worked during the Iraq War too, right up until the body count kept rising. And the end of the war was nowhere in sight. And it was clear that the administration started the war without any adequate idea of how to end it. And more and more and more stories came out about how it was simply a war of opportunity for Dubya, which is why he started it based on bullshit instead of a justified action backed up by actual evidence.

At that point his support dwindled and no amount of harpies shrieking that anyone who didn't march in absolute lock-step with Dubya was a traitor could convince the public otherwise. At least in most of the country. In Texas they still think Iraq had WMDs. Texas breeds their stupids extra stupid.

Right wing media keeps talking about DPRK that way. But if you're depending on right wing media in the age of Trump you deserve to be sent off to die.

>Right wing media keeps talking about DPRK that way
Unfortunately, it's not that simple. I don't pick and choose media outlets; I let the internet do that for me. Both left-leaning and right-leaning sources have been fielding the idea of a preemptive attack. For once, it's not how they say it, but what they say, which is generally along the lines of "a preemptive attack has been proposed and is being considered, not that you need to worry because [reason spins differently by political alignment]".

Both sides are trying to make the American people comfortable with the idea that the US is going to unilaterally start a war with North Korea, and that they should not be interested in hearing about things like the mutual defence treaty with South Korea that does not permit the US to take any action on the Korean Peninsula without their participation or approval.

Off topic:

Most of this "anything other than conservative leftist snowflakes and their liberal mainstream media" vs "alt-right racists based bros and their oppressed conspiracy theorist truth-taking media" is a myth. I'm not saying it's an insidious conspiracy, more like an unintended confluence of what the current administration wants and the constraints of for-profit news.

The government needs the people divided, helpless, and tacitly in approval of whatever it might do, while the media needs to get ratings and turn a profit--which demonstrably cannot be achieved by being honest or fair. So the media, in an industry-wide effort, made a game out of it--spinning every story both ways in order to turn people against each other who would otherwise be able to have a conversation because fighting about it keeps them interested. This also happens to keep them divided, helpless, and tacitly in approval of whatever their government might do. Creating an illusion of conflict between the current administration and the media has also been of mutual benefit, preventing the stupid masses from realizing what's going on and more firmly establishing a false dichotomy that keeps the stupid masses divided, helpless, and tacitly in approval of all the shit being fed to them.

You stupid, stupid boy. The internet doesn't do that for you. The internet feeds you news that confirms your preconceived bias. That's why you only see news that confirms what you already knew to be true all the time.

You don't know who you're talking to; I'm not your average dupe. This is why I block tracking cookies and delete all cache on exit, limit sending HTTP referer to clicked targets only, Adblock (EasyList+EasyPrivacy), NoScript, MVPS hosts file, DNSCrypt, etc etc, and I don't log in. Sites don't remember me; I get the default output of whereever I go.

Of course, there are some things that are harder to avoid. I've caught sites profiling my flashplugin (font list), there's some bias from geoip, and occasionally my ISP gives me an address I've used before.There's also the possibility that site's default output itself is biased, so I check a lot of different sites.

As proof, I'd like you to try and find any source that supports my point of view. Go ahead, look. Find anyone talking about the false alt-right/snowflake left dichotomy that's been sold to you and the disenfranchisement of the people by both "sides" for a common purpose.

I wish it were just my paranoid delusion.

No, you're the other kind of dupe, the kind who thinks he's too clever to fall for tricks but is obviously well down the path to Idiocracy.

Vote for Trump again in 2020 just to show us all how smart you are.

I will not be held responsible for Trump. I voted for Gary Johnson. I'm not saying I did anything of value, but I didn't vote for Trump.

...and did you just skip right over my whole spiel about the non-existence of the alt-right and snowflake left and make some comment about how I must be a supporter of one of those two sides?

You can not kill yourself fast enough. Hurry, there's no time.

You clearly know what you have to do then...

Tell you what, lets race; I'll even give you a head start--I won't slash my wrists or overdose on anything until you're already dying.
