Lügenpresse

You know, I started Cody Johnston in Cartnoon because he used to be funny. Don’t believe me? Watch-

Fuller House

I mean it. Have you ever seen Fuller House? It is was always this bad (c’mon the theme song celebrates the fact that’s it’s utterly predictable in that three camera sitcom kind of way). The only break through character is Kimmy Gibbler (as memorable as Steve Urkle) and Dave Coulier totally disrespected my gal Alanis Morrisette in ways that are best settled at dawn- with pistols.

The best thing I can say about it is one of the Olsen Twins grew up to become The Scarlet Witch.

Tell me this isn’t funny-

Not any more. I’m going to start treating him like John Oliver and Samantha Bee.

Lügenpresse- Fake News in Nazi.

‘Press of lies’ is a pejorative political term used largely by German political movements for the printed press and the mass media at large, when it is believed not to have the quest for truth at the heart of its coverage. It can be considered synonymous with the term fake news.

The term Lügenpresse has been used intermittently since the 19th century in political polemics in Germany, by a wide range of groups and movements in a variety of debates and conflicts. Isolated uses can be traced back as far as the Vormärz period. The term gained traction in the March 1848 Revolution when Catholic circles employed it to attack the rising, hostile liberal press. In the Franco-German War (1870–71) and particularly World War I (1914–18) German intellectuals and journalists used the term to denounce what they believed was enemy war propaganda. The Evangelischer Pressedienst made its mission the fight against the “lying press” which it considered to be the “strongest weapon of the enemy”. After the war, German-speaking Marxists such as Karl Radek and Alexander Parvus vilified “the bourgeois lying press” as part of their class struggle rhetoric. The Nazis adopted the term for their propaganda against the Jewish, communist, and later the foreign press. During the protests of 1968, left-wing students disparaged the liberal-conservative Axel Springer publishing house, notably its flagship daily Bild, as a “lying press”.

Remind you of anything?

As always I don’t argue from authority. Replicate my results.
