I don’t Want To Be A Debbie Downer But…
I have written about this former local radio personality before. Admittedly I still follow on Instagram. He also has a podcast but these days who doesn’t.
In one of his latest #instagram video posts he started it with ‘I don’t want to be a Debbie downer but…’ dude.. You’ve been a Debbie downer for over 3 years now.
Here’s the gist of his latest rant or comment or conspiracy or whatever and so on and so on…
I will be paraphrasing but keeping it accurate 😁
He hasn’t been feeling well for some time and finally landed an appt with some doctor for a check up. Out of the blue he gets a call from the doctors administrative assistant to tell him that because this doctor lives on his street it is a conflict of interest and so the doctor cannot see him but got him a referral.
So Debbie downer took it upon himself to tell his audience this story. He felt this was a bizarre reason and suspected that due to his controversial views over the last few years with all that has been happening in the world/province/country that this doctor refused to see him so came up with this nonsensical reason. And he comments something to the effect…’are you telling me that if I am walking on my street and I have a crisis and you happen to drive by you won’t stop and tend to me?’
A few days later he puts out another video to say that someone had forwarded the video to the doctor and she responded to him and that he’d talk about it on his podcast.
I don’t bother listening to his podcast but this I had to hear…essentially she wrote that she makes it a policy not to have family, friends and neighbors as patients and it has nothing to do with him. And she makes it a point to address his ridiculous comment without bringing it up that as a doctor she has an obligation to tend to someone in crisis.
Here’s the thing with Debbie downer.. He should have apologized right there and then in his podcast.. But he didn’t. He ‘accepted‘ her explanation because turns out he does in fact know the doctor and her husband. This couple were one of the first ones he met when he first moved to the neighborhood and although they don’t know each other well ‘they are good people’.
Accept her explanation? Really? How big is your ego? What you did was still leave a grain of doubt in the mind of those that are gullible enough to drink all your Kool-Aid
Instead of putting it out into the world he should have kept this quiet.. Reached out to the doctor again and get/demand a clear explanation… maybe the assistant could have elaborated more…You should read some of the comments in his initial post.. Oh and by the way he’s not a conspiracy theorist. Right. He put the doctor in a terrible light when this could have been all avoided.
He also makes it a point of saying this story is now done because he is the type of guy that moves forward…. Lolll…. Holy motherfucker…. Lol… dude still harbors incredible hatred on being let go of his morning gig some 4+ years ago. Look, I loved that morning show.. He and his co-host were fantastic.. Frankly, they were inexcusably and unceremoniously let go with apparently no reason. Haven’t listened to that station since. He shits on mainstream media these days.. I wonder how his mindset would be if he was still employed by said mainstream media. Would he have quit considering his stance on so many issues? We’ll never know.
He wants you to believe that he takes the high road on things but don’t kid yourself.. Any chance to mock or shade, he takes. And it goes down to name calling. Let’s just say he uses Instagram stories strategically that way.
I should end this post with the following…. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and beliefs… and so am I 😁
PS: if you are curious to know who this person is..there are some clues in this post. I can’t give it all away 😋
Sunday morning coffee with a little musing: What does ‘liking’ a tweet say about you?
i had a few posts lined up to put out and the one below was lined up next but Gina decided to one up me. She was trending on twitter on Wednesday and by Thursday she was no longer Cara… she was Duned for her online controversies. And of course the numb nuts on YouTube were all over this story once it happened.. they literally follow the same playbook!! it’s pathetic. but i digress…Anyway she dug her own grave. It is so baffling to me how these far extremist people no matter what side they are on accuse the other side of the same exact thing they are doing. The. Exact. Same. Thing. How many times has she called the other side “brainwashed”? Never directly though. Only through meme after meme after meme. Are you paying attention at all at what you are doing and saying? any? She is literally personifying “brainwashed”. Mind blown!!! it was a hot topic on Wednesday night. I watched a video put out by Grace Randolph on the topic and wowwww, it’s like she read my blog 😁!!! In so many words Grace said more or less what i wrote in my previous post on Gina.. A must read by the way! What she puts out on social media is just lowkey shady.. Every F*in thing is about try to figure out what i am trying to say or who i am trying to shade…or as Grace put it.. “she does it in such a sneaky and uncool way that she knows it’s bad”. Anyway, leave it to Gina to outdo herself by seemingly comparing what the Republicans are going through to the HOLOCAUST. WHATTTTTT???? Let that sink in. i know, i know, everyone under the sun just loves to over-use this expression.. So. Why not?
She’s put out a lot of memes on “hypocrisy”.. i am afraid though that she needs to look at herself in the mirror as well.
She will of course find a place. You will see.. she’ll be all over, on podcasts, the youtubes 😋.. but without a doubt only with those who are like minded. Will she even bother trying to give her side of things with the “other side”? you know, the dark side (see what i did there 🙂)? The side the persecuted her? No.
….and i see on social media already that she has jumped on the Ben Shapiro train… oh, Ben. So I watched a bit of his video. Ben states that as a Jew he was not at all offended by what Gina posted. Let’s think about this though. What is Ben’s schtick? Anyone? I highly doubt he really cares for Gina. What he sees here is an opportunity to milk this for as long as he can possibly milk it. And of course, no doubt given the post that broke the camel’s back, Gina feels vindicated by being backed by Ben. On with the rebellion!!! Lol.. Once this fire tapers… no-one will even care.
The problem with folks who like Gina are extreme one side or the other is that they like to put everyone else in that group as well.. and that’s WRONG!!!! A Republican, Ana Navarro, who seems to be a gem of a person said it best..and i am paraphrasing here.. the reps didn’t vote dems because we all of a sudden see eye to eye .. We did it because we knew it was the only way to get the toxicity out of power.
The above caption is interesting. I am not the smartest guy in the world. I think what Gina is trying to convey here is that just because she thinks differently doesn’t mean she is a conspiracy theorist. So that can also be said of the person on the other side who thinks differently from her. Yes? But she probably doesn’t see it that way because that person on the left is a pedo busy trafficking children through pizza joints.
The above is a good example of a stupid headline. She was not fired for being conservative. Although by far not the majority…There are plenty of conservatives that are employed in Hollywood. Happily and reaping the benefits.
Make no mistake about it though. I am not oblivious to the fact that there is hypocrisy on all sides. That includes who gets and does not get cancelled. Pedro Pascal comes up in conversation quite a bit. James Gunn too.. The latter though was fired on the spot for tweets he put out some 10 years ago… Gina apparently was given opportunity after opportunity to tone it down a notch.
Here is an interesting and fair take on the whole Gina firing https://youtu.be/UFAYvuCusMA
Here’s another YouTubers take…I have watched his videos in the past and not always agreed with what he says but he makes valid points here: https://youtu.be/sCx4ryTwBB8
An interesting read as well…
still worth reading my original post below as it was well written 😁…
once again there is an effort in place to get Gina fired. For what u may ask? For liking certain types of tweets on the day the Capitol was stormed. How do I know this? I watched yet another #YT video on Gina. This dude clearly has a mad crush on her. I don’t blame him though. She is gorgeous. so here he was ranting about ‘be careful what you like’.. ‘Be careful what you like’… blah blah blah and then he goes on to try to justify what Gina ‘liked’ by making these types of comments..
‘I like chocolate milkshakes over strawberry milkshakes…’
‘I like green apples over red…’
‘You gonna unsub me now?’
Sort of paraphrased what he said. I didn’t feel like replaying the video.
He doesn’t mention at all what tweets Gina liked but another #youtuber who also defended Gina did some digging and found that the tweets she liked, she liked well before the violence started. Did she like any tweets on the capitol hill violence? He didn’t say. It doesn’t mean she didn’t but I don’t think it’s worth my time to find out.
So regardless. Is comparing ‘liking’ any tweet, even one that may imply agreement to what happened at the Capitol to liking one fruit over another? You are literally comparing apples and oranges. And btw have you ever heard of the expression actions speak louder than words?
Even though I am a Joe nobody I try my best to be careful what I ‘like’ on Twitter. One thing for sure though is that I will never promote/encourage/applaud acts of violence.
Sunday morning coffee with a little musing: Gina has me conflicted
I don’t consider myself a political person. That is, I follow politics but don’t. Right or wrong, I don’t live or die by it. Having said that, it has been hard not to get riled up though these past four years with what went down with our neighbors to the south. The aftermath of the 2020 election has also reared its ugly head and continues to. Add to that covid and it has been a dumpster fire full of tin foil hats and conspiracy theories!
Enter Gina. I had been following her on social media for years. As the election was approaching she was putting out tweets that had me wondering. After this year’s election she tweeted this out:
We need to clean up the election process so we are not left feeling the way we do today. Put laws in place that protect us against voter fraud. Investigate every state.
God dammit. Say it ain’t so.
Does she have a right to speak her mind? Of course. Does she have a right to be a Republican? Of course.
Just because she is a Republican does it mean she is a trump supporter? Considering her tweet u have to lean towards a yes.
I have watched many a video on Gina and she comes across as such a great person. I’d want her to be my bff… I wouldn’t mind at all being MMA’d by her. Here’s why I am conflicted.
She says there needs to be open dialogue and questions asked but yet she will only give her time to like minded people. Is Parler really a platform for open minded people? So her version of open dialogue is with like minded people so she can feel better about herself? Where is the progress in that?
She says that she doesn’t accept any form of bullying. So is that the bullying directed at her or in general? You cannot support one of the biggest bully of them all and make such a statement.
She says she will not be muted but is she really not trying to mute others with some of her tweets and low-key shady memes she puts out on social media?
She puts out posts like this yet doesn’t back it up with anything.
Ok Gina, do tell us what’s really going on.
Here is another one of many…so who is this man? U speaking generally? Is it about ur dad? A friend? Who, who is this honest man? Enough with this. Own up. What are you afraid of?
She claims voter fraud and yet backs it up with nothing. When Trump was elected I wonder what kind of tweets she was putting out? Any fraud then? Obviously that election was on the up and up. Just like the Dems, the Republicans now have four years to prove fraud as well.
She talks about truths but nowadays what is that? This whole ‘you speak your truth’ is nonsense. What does that mean? I guess I am dating myself and really old school about this. I grew up knowing ‘truth’ and ‘lies’.. A truth is a fact. Nowadays something could be a blatant lie but if you see it as truth welllllll then that’s your truth and that’s ok.
She made a comment in an interview that she gets messages from ppl who live in oppressed parts of the world wondering what is happening to the USA? What? The world has been dealing with covid for about a year and we have been asked to conform to something in an effort to get this beast under control. Well you know what? For her that’s not it. It’s just the govt trying to control us. I don’t think she even knows the true feeling of being oppressed. Noone born in this part of the world knows what oppression is. That’s the luxury we have living where we do but because we’re being pushed to do something for the greater good we’re being oppressed, controlled, our freedoms are being infringed upon… blah blah blah. It’s been a year out of our life. Obviously and sadly, it has impacted some more than others but imagine living this for decades or centuries…and of course, the deaths related to covid have been overly exaggerated! Of course.
Also how amazing was it that as soon as Biden won the election poofff… a vaccine for covid is ready to go? Amazing eh? When I saw the articles pop up I could not help but slam the palm of my hand into my forehead with incredible force because I knew what was coming. So it’s ‘true’ then.. Covid was spread world wide in an effort to get Trump out of office. It’s plausible. Isn’t it? But then u have trump tweeting he knew the vaccine was coming and his tin foil hat wearing JR buying into how interesting the timing was. I mean the timing was rotten and so it ends up invalidating the fact that all these companies were working on a vaccine all this time. And let’s face it, it was these very same companies that put out this virus in the first place with patient zero, right? Oh so many conspiracies!!!
Crazy to think how much nonsense came to the forefront during this man’s tenure as president. I am not saying it wasn’t there before but he sure as hell gave them a platform to come on out of their dark place…
Marjorie Taylor Greene, one of many nut jobs and there are many … yet there was refusal to remove her from her position..instead the plan was to have a talk with her. Ana Navarro a republican said it well.. “A talking to? A talking to is what i have with my dog when she pees where she shouldn’t pee. Marjorie needs to be removed”
In the end some good happened and after Marjorie’s clearly non apology, apology.. Her true colors once again came to light via her Twitter.
another example of more nutjobs
i also notice with Gina and these far right folks that every time they be losing ground on anything they always fall back to pedophilia claims.. it’s like their fall back to everything!! Apparently pedos and child porn are strictly a left thing.
i think it’s safe to say that Florida leans right.. I wonder if the person in the above article is a dem?
Sunday morning coffee with a little musing: To Parler or not to Parlez?
Is what happened to parler fair? Being singled out the way it was after the nonsense that happened on Capitol Hill? Is what happened to parler a serious hit to freedom of speech? it’s a bit of a slippery slope but in the end it was the right decision.. regardless of those conspiracists that think otherwise.
Paraphrased from the mouth of the CPO..
Parler.. A platform where you can speak freely, where u will not be fact checked and told how to think, what to read etc…
So basically u can spew a bunch of lies and that’s ok u won’t be called out on it .. Because u know in today’s world it’s not about truth… it’s about ‘your‘ truth.
Every social media platform has its share of toxicity. I don’t think any of these platforms started out that way. That wasn’t the intention behind the platform. Unfortunately it devolved into that because unfortunately in this world of ours there are scumbags on every side. Parler on the other hand was created specifically for that, masked under the veil of ‘freedom of speech’ nonsense. It’s a group of like minded toxic people spewing lies, conspiracy theories, nonsense and more importantly, violence without accountability. And now they’re getting a little help from Russia. And maybe it’s just me but .. A little bit of irony, no? Russia and freedom of speech.
