I have this conversation with Skep a lot: the left needs someone who can check their bullsh!t - something that would be covered by people like George Carlin in the past but hasn't been filled since his death. Well, I think I found it. The host of the YouTube channel Secular Talk, Kyle Kulinsky, has become one of my favorite people on the internet and/or in media lately because of his propensity for checking bullsh!t in the left.

Examples:

Vs Salon: https://www.youtube.com...
https://www.youtube.com... (related to first)

On Gamergate: https://www.youtube.com...

On Justin Trudeau: https://www.youtube.com...

Vs Mother Jones: https://www.youtube.com...

These are just a few examples, and I won't list more because this alone will take enough time to watch, but this is generally how Kulinsky operates on his show, and I like it a lot.

And I'm much obliged to you for making it clear - that I'm not here."

He's one of my favorite people in the left. Definitely the lowest number of eyerolls/minute when watching his coverage.
"See now Oblivion shimmering all around us, its very tranquility deadlier than tempest. How little all our keels have troubled it. Time in its deeps swims like a monstrous whale; and, like a whale, feeds on the littlest things -- small tunes and little unskilled songs of the olden, golden evenings -- and anon turneth whale-like to overthrow whole ships."

"We enjoy, we see nothing by direct vision; but only by reflection, and in anatomical dismemberment."

Whatever is uttered in conversations with skpskm better stay there.

If you're seriously looking for a way to check the validity of arguments, then do not go down that lazy route of just looking for deadpan commentary on YouTube.

Don't be yet another copy-pasting dope.
