I'm so sick of "so-and-so DESTROYS/SHREDS/SHAMES/DEVASTATES/HUMILIATES whomever." Apparently, Youtube has some kind of requirement that you put that stupid click-bait shit in your title. So freakin' stupid and annoying. That nonsense aside, this is educational. I don't see anyone being "embarrassed" in this clip. Roll Eyes :

The trend of FB/Youtube/News Articles using those click-bate sensationalized titles is a huge pet-peeve of mine as well. Grrrrrr

Regarding the video, thanks for sharing, Boss.

As they are mine as well. I guess the tactic must work well with some people, otherwise they wouldn't do it. I hate looking at stuff on Gunbroker because of all of the "This 11 time lottery winner only does this" or "This lady wins big at the casinos doing one thing, and it is completely legal".

I absolutely hate it. If Para hadn't have posted this, and I came about the clip on my own, I'd likely have not watched it because of the title alone. And it is worth the watch.

Again we see that Left leaning perspectives are born of ignorance or complicity. The only thing the Left needs to succeed through progressivism is for the public to be ignorant or complicit. Dinesh is a warrior for truth which is why he was put in prison. Sure he was convicted of some political process crime, but let's face it, he needed to be shut up and discredited. Don't think for a minute if he were just as effective for the Left that he would have even been charged.

Sorry for the drift, but Dinesh knows the truth of history and is sharp as a sword. He must be defended or the Left will suffer no obstacle to destroy him.



I'm sorry, I'm thinking about the cats again...

Interesting points made by Dinesh regarding the switch in party support by blacks due to the New Deal of the 30's. Never heard that argument before.

As to the title, I couldn't hear the responses from the audience, so maybe that is where the embarrassing comment comes into play.

No, it's click-bait horse shit, plain and simple. EVERYONE who is posting such clips on youtube now pulls this disgusting, misleading shit, because it's all about the clicks. Makes me want to puke. Fuckin' assholes.

Seriously, its becoming difficult to find any political videos on youtube that don't follow the same ridiculous pattern.

And don't forget to put your exaggeration/lie in ALL CAPS. Mad

I always wondered the following:

If racist southerners switched parties from dem to Rep, then why is it only now in the South that Governorships & Legislatures have gone mostly Republican and only happened in the last 20 or so years? Also why didn't more dixiecrats switch parties...as far as I can tell, the only prominent dixiecrat to switch was Strom Thurmond of SC.

BTW, I highly recommend Dinesh's film "Hillary's America".

As much as I admire the man, LTC West's FB posts are rife with that type sensationalism and click-bait. I finally got to where I just stopped following him for that very reason.

As to Mr. D'Souza....the man is simply brilliant.

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24

He is brilliant, and has a brass set. The man went to prison on ridiculous political donation charges that were a cover for his real offense-- which is exactly the kind of thing you see in this video: He is a thorn in the side of progressives.

Came out of prison swinging. Big Grin

If you haven't read his book, "Hillary's Ameria", you really should. He goes much deeper into this,
