Eh…your take on this continues to not age well.
Explain to me how your MO of mistrusting right wing sources while trusting left wing sources is different from the MAGAt yahoo MO of doing the opposite.

Reasoned skepticism is healthy. Biased skepticism isn’t.

If there is evidence a command center under the hospital why hasn't Israel shown it? Obviously it would be to their great advantage if true.

You believe Filipkowski and your skepticism of Taibbi increased as he stopped towing the illiberal line.

What exactly would a Hamas command center even look like? These are basically guys with rifles or mortars who lob rockets or attacks across the border, mostly against civilian populations, and then they melt back into their own civilian populations. What logistical sophistication would they need to do these types of haphazard attacks anyway? Wherever they are holding hostages, it's likely to be a literal hole in the ground, not some Hollywood-type set from a movie with computers and a clean-room environment.

The list of conservatives and former Republicans who lampoon MAGA is long…including yourself my friend. :)

And Taibbi? :lol: Next you’re going to scold me for being disappointed in Glenn Greenwald too. :lol:

Nice deflection. :lol:

Your question should be directed to Israel - it was the Israelis who attacked the hospital because there was a Hamas command center underneath the hospital. Where is it?

Your question should be directed to Israel - it was the Israelis who attacked the hospital because there was a Hamas command center underneath the hospital. Where is it?
It's not a deflection, it's an honest question. The tunnels they have shown look to be nothing more than the same kind of tunnels we've seen for illegal border crosses on our own southern border - narrow, barely enough space for people to move. So the question is still valid - what more can you find of these things, especially once you destroy what's above it?

Maybe we should ask the Israelis since it was their justification?

The bigger scandal here is that these are the biggest, most esteemed colleges in the country and they’ve raised a bunch of *****ing idiots. So, do I really think they want to wipe out the Jews? I don’t. But they have this — they live by buzzwords and what they read on TikTok, they want to be an ally of people who have more melanin and less money. That’s who you have to be an ally [to], don’t think of it past more than that. And that’s — how did this happen at these colleges? Which, you and I both have been talking about this for a long time. And by the way, there’s a group of us, I would call us old-school liberals, which, we get called conservative for being that now. And, for a long time, my dear liberal friends, but the ones who only watch MSNBC and read The New York Times, they were like, what are you talking about? If there’s anything good that has come out of this, it’s that now you see what we’ve been talking about. We were not making it up.”

Maher has become an old crank but he’s raising some fair points about college campuses.

This. They might even investigate Hunter, indict a Democratic Senator, and confiscate Eric Adams phone…
Well, it would've been harder not to investigate Hunter and Menendez. Hunter was jet-setting around the globe collecting millions based on an expertise he clearly didn't have (other than being able to get Joe on the phone), and Menendez was stupid enough to be caught for corruption after somehow beating the rap for similar corruption almost a decade ago. I don't know what Adams did, only saw the headlines. Whatever it is, I'm sure it's several levels lower than the other two guys.

See these road blockages daily now around the country. These disproportionately woke white people need to be run the fuck over. Kudos to this man for standing up to them.
