Trump's Lies Are Not Official Lies

 I've been reading some of the traditional, year-end Trump Has Destroyed Truth Forever pieces, and holding forth about them to a friend of mine who's smarter about this stuff. His response was the title of this post. That's a damn good point. Nobody pays any attention to Trump's "lies"...which are radically exaggerated and mostly bullshit (as opposed to lies) anyway. Honestly, who takes what that guy says seriously? That's not to excuse him. It's deplorable that we have a President who speaks as he does. But this post isn't about Trump's unfitness for the office. As I've been saying, the other side's lies are big, sweeping lies that are supported by the massive apparatus of the left, which controls all our institutions. People believe these lies--climate hysteria, transgender ideology, BLM fabrications about rampant police murder, "systemic racism," and the like... My friend, however, hit the nail more squarely on the head: these lies are official lies. It's not just that they're widespread and believed. It's worse than that. It's not just that they're the orthodoxy. It's worse than that. It's something more like: they have been designated official truth by our cultural overlords. That's insanity--in case you need me to tell you that.
