Is Ruth Bader Ginsburg already dead and "they" are keeping it secret?

Post by Abdul Alhazred » Mon Jan 28, 2019 2:16 pm

Latest conspiracy theory spotted several places on the 'net.
Based on that she hasn't been seen in public lately.

I'm guessing still alive, but not with 100% certainty.

If Ginsburg dies, I wouldn't be surprised if some deranged hilltard, gas lit by 2 years of hystierical propaganda (like shemp), just opened fire on the White House to save America from trump picking another justice.

More seriously, I expect media outlets that used to responsibly oversee what editorial content they published to green light speculative pieces on "how we can remove trump before the nomination" engaging in open seditious talk.

Falsifiable prediction made on that second one.

If Ginsburg dies, will there be an attempt to keep it secret?

Question assumes this isn't already happening.

The real intent is to seed doubt on her ability to work remotely and build pressure for her to step down.

Which she won't do modulo a Bernie moment.

Meh. There's no real reason not to work remotely. I do think she should have to come in once a week or so for HR training. That's what I had to do.

I'll do you one better. I saw one a few days ago speculating that the REAL reason that Pelosi refused to allow Trump to do the SOTU was that the Supreme Court was supposed to be there and with Ginsburg being dead they couldn't have it.

No, it doesn't make a lot of sense to me either, but these things never do.

In a world where the President is a Russian Agent, thinking someone is dead who hasn't been seen publicly for a while is actually low on the crazy meter.

For some reason the subtleness of this came across to me as pretty fucking brilliant.

Honestly, well done Rob.

I have to say. The internet is a tasteless and classless place. We become de-sensitized to certain things.

The "Ginsberg is dead" shit however is a troll too far. What did she ever do to anybody anyway? Have a legal opinion? Become first woman on the supreme court? Show some fucking respect. Even fake respect out of sociopathic tendencies are fine. But Jesus.

It's not funny. It's small. Very very small.

I actually go read DU/reddit/The_Donald to see what the echo chambers are up to, and there are a lot of right wing trolls making fun of an elderly woman with health issues.

Maybe it's the old puritan in me at heart, but it is anti-noble in a way that makes me sad.

And I don't mind calling people greasy cucks.

FWIW, I don't think they are trolling. Not all of them, anyway.
