Let’s Talk About Think Tanks

Written by Richard Romine

There are at least 40 think tanks, funded by billionaire ideologues working 24/7/365 to push their anti-democratic agenda. So, why is that a problem? Because conservative think tanks are not only where “Woke” and “Truth” go to die, they are where lies are focused and have lipstick put on that pig. Where “CRT” was born, “Trans Bathrooms” was born, and where the pea soup comes from, as in “The Exorcist” style, is spewed everywhere, while their heads spin around and around. You don’t really think that Ted Cruz, Marjory Taylor Green, and Jim Jordan are smart enough to figure this shit out? That’s what think tanks are for…To supply the pea soup… These guys are just the vessel for the demon. The think tanks supply the demon.
