Mike's Blog Round Up
August 27, 2016

Thank you for letting me be part of your week, Crooks and Liars. Thanks also to the 28-plus (mostly) independent bloggers who again show us that the blog-o-sphere is alive and well, with exceptional stories and terrific insight you cannot find anywhere else.

Vox's Amanda Taub tells us about a neat browser trick that demonstrates very clearly what the Alt-Right means whenever they talk about Political Correctness.

US Uncut knows that patriotism is more than flag deep.

Make Common Sense Common Again sees a sign.

Southern Beale welcomes us to the NRA's America. Sigh.

Bonus Track: Hysterical Raisins tells us that every little thing is gonna be Alt-Right.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).

Can you help us out?

For nearly 20 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
