Who’s crazy? From Doug “Uncola” Lynn at theburningplatform.com:
I had lunch with a friend the other day and he called the mainstream media the “sunshine media” because they are shedding light on all of Trump’s dark deeds with Russia. Not kidding. As I persuasively tried to red-pill him regarding Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, Uranium One, the DNC/Clinton/Fusion GPS fake Russian dossier, Obama’s weaponization of the DoJ and FBI against a presidential candidate, FISA warrants and Susan Rice’s felonious unmasking of American citizens illicitly surveilled – I saw a look of confused pity enter his eyes. He thought I was crazy.
In retrospect, I was acting, perhaps, a little… shall we say… passionate on these topics. I also realize one of the reasons people get upset when discussing politics and the reporting by the mainstream media, is because no one wants their friends to get fooled. But on the way home I started to wonder:
“How can one convince someone else they are NOT crazy?”
After lunch, I read a humorous story on a blog with the word “cuckoo’s nest” in the title and it made me think of the 25th Amendment positioning by Trump’s political opponents; both kind of funny and kind of tragic. Kind of like Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, which was later made into a 1975 film of the same name. The book remains one of my personal favorites and the Academy Award winning movie is widely considered to be one of the best motion pictures ever made; ranking #33 in the American Film Institute’s top 100 films.
When I read Cuckoo’s Nest in high school I was so impressed that I wanted to learn more about the author. I was fascinated by Kesey, a one-time champion wrestler who later became an icon of the 1960s counterculture. I identified with Kesey as a wrestler although, at the time, I arrogantly considered his home state of Oregon to represent more of a civil war reenactor or national-guard-type level of wrestling; compared to my own Midwestern state, which ranked nothing less than the Green Beret, Navy Seal, or recon-Marine standard of matsmanship.
Then, in college, I also read “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test”.
But I digress.
