While I don't facebook, I have had to relegate friends and family to the "junk" folder of my e-mail from receiving all of the crazy anti-Obama shit, but the weird thing is that, while I probably have more liberal than conservative friends and family, I never get those weird conspiracy e-mails from the left.

What's up with that? Is e-mail the AM radio of the 2000's or some shite - just limited to marginal conservative paranoia? Even the anti Bush conspiracy paranoia coming out during his administration seemd to be coming more from libertarians than liberals with all of the 911 conspiracy shite.

And why doesn't the left wing liberal media cover the conservative bias in the conspiracy paranoia? Bias?
Well said.

This board has heavy right-leaning participation.

As such, there are more posts from that end of the spectrum.

I have several liberal buddies, and they get more whackadoo emails than I get.

shite about Corporations intentionally causing the financial crisis. . .or that the right wants to enslave the poor.

Go to Dem Underground or DailyKos

You'll see more of that there, than you see here.

Nor have I. But I have gotten the crazy right email chain that I usually send an email to everyone on the list debunking the claim.

That has stopped people from including me on these chains when you basically email everyone they sent it to showing how they were fooled...

I am politically active in a Northeastern city that likely voted 95% for Obama and I see more crap from one or two friends who are conservative (yes, I do have conservative friends who don't pull this nonsense) than I do from everyone else combined.

If Rush Limbaugh spent one day talking about how Obama "wasn't that bad" and approved of one of his Supreme Court nominees, he would be branded a liberal hack the next day.

Who can argue with that anecdotal evidence?

If Obama spent one day selecting conservative justices for the USSC, you guys would call him a conservative wingnut.

Didn't really have facebook until 2009. During the Bush years I remember thinking that the upcoming War in Iraq was BS, and I opposed both sides on that one. The propaganda from the admin just seemed too obvious for me.

But I do remember the Swift Boat attacks on Kerry in 2004 that were pretty disgraceful. And a lot of the facebook and e-mail chain nonsense was carried out on message boards back then. Pre 2004 the Republicans would attack using only slightly harder than normal tactics it seemed, but the D's were just pathetic in responding to them. Clinton was the exception, but he came up with his own machine to respond.

Likely this has a significant amount to do with it.

I would suppose that the crazy left sent more stuff around when the republicans had control.

How strange.
You didn't see stories about Romney's horses, or Palin seeing Russia from her house, or the Bush Tax Cuts being only for the rich, or the Bush Tax Cuts not helping the economy in any way, or the horrors of Guantanamo, or the inhumanity of the drone program, or the rape factory that was Halliburton, or Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc. etc, etc, etc, etc, etc. etc, etc.?

You've seen none of that?
Really?

I find your selective exposure fascinating.

How would you characterize Dan Rather's supposed Jerry Killian memo?

Not in my e-mail.

As do I, although I've given it a little thought since posting that. It seems that most of the liberals that I know have at least an undergraduate education, while most of the conservatives I know have at most 2-year associates degrees.

It would seem that while I have made some intelligent, if liberal, friends throughout my life, my family is full of dumb shits.

I'm not saying there is a correlation between being dumb and conservative, and smart and a liberal; but rather being dumb and falling for stupid shite and sending it on, and being smart and not forwarding a bunch of crap. I'm sure if I knew more uneducated liberals, they would be forwarding me all manner of ridculousnesses.
