Again, the Big Lie

A nice example, thanks to Susan Faludi in today’s Times, who did all the immense research required to track it down, of how Fox News perverts discourse, and then the msm pick it up. Other than two women in Ontario with 4000 readers, no feminist ever said that, or made that into a hashtag. Pure invention, by the weaponizers of speech, who manage to destroy the truth by simply asserting the lie with confidence that it will spread.
