Apparently my local King Soopers supports conspiracy theories and reichwing propaganda.

I was in there yesterday, and happened to glance at the headlines on the way out. Saw some nonsense about sexual content in books in school libraries, and then saw that it was epoch times, that bizarre rag owned by a Chinese national with Falun Gong. Now, our local fishwrap is not quality journalism, nor is NYT, but they are recognized as somewhat legitimate. To see that qanon-supporting, trump-humping rag on the rack annoyed me no end.

Called Kroger corporate this morning to express my displeasure. When I asked to speak to whoever approved this rag, I was instead transferred to their Home Chef line. Fortunately, I know the manager at my store, and expressed my annoyance and displeasure to her. She was completely unaware of the issue. This could get interesting.

On a side note, it was disheartening to learn that the Shen Yun troupe is part of the organization.

I rather enjoy reading the Epoch Times.

I dunno what the primitive has against it.

IOW the niyad primitive only wants political information available if it agrees with what it believes. So in another place and time, the only acceptable publications that would have been acceptable to niyad would have been papers like Vlkischer Beobachter and Pravda.

Primitives always reveal so much more about themselves than they’re willing to admit openly.

 :rotf: The Epoch Times was started by and may yet be owned by an American-born ethnic-Chinese man.

 :rotf: What does niyad have against Chinese people?! Or does she only object to Chinese people who dislike Xi-the-Pooh?

 :rotf: Falun Gong is a bogey-something-or-other because it's a religious sect? Now bogey-man-ize The Christian Science Monitor, which is still affiliated with the church of its founder, Mary Baker Eddy, niyad.

 :tongue: "qanon-supporting"? Got evidence?

 :tongue: "trump-humping"? Got pictures or evidence? :-)

 :tongue: Guess what, niyad, King Soopers offers for sale what it knows customers will buy. :rotf: You're surrounded by "Trump-humpers", niyad!!! :rotf:  :tongue:

Yes, she's a standard-issue DUmmie. It's their refusal to hear news they don't want to hear that leads to their shock and dismay when things don't go their way or go against them.

Is niyad  the prototypical Karen?

Sure looks like it has all the qualifications.
When you are the beneficiary of someone’s kindness and generosity, it produces a sense of gratitude and community.

When you are the beneficiary of a policy that steals from someone and gives it to you in return for your vote, it produces a sense of entitlement and dependency.
