Everything after “Basically” is BS

It was reported last night that President Trump will nominate Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court later today. Which means from now until she is confirmed, the word “basically” is going to be doing some heavy lifting.

Since most of the histrionics are not rooted in reality, the vicious, clueless fearmongers in the ResistanceLOLwill rely heavily on the word “basically” when deploying their smears against Amy Coney Barrett..

Like this:

Everything after "Basically" is BS

I’ve said before that when one prefaces any statement with the word “basically” what one is actually saying is: “Not really, but the truth isn’t dramatic enough.”

Or, to put it bluntly, “Everything after ‘basically’ is bullshit.”

Using “basically” gives someone license to make any wild accusation without providing any evidence that the accusation is remotely true.

[For the record, Charlotte Clymer is “basically” a woman.]

We’ve seen this before, haven’t we?

In fact, back in 2017, two of the so-called “Parkland survivors” (they were both “basically” survivors) went on CBS News and claimed the NRA was “basically” threatening them.

[Spoiler alert: the NRA didn’t threaten them at all, but the truth wasn’t dramatic enough.]

You’re going to hear a lot of insane people making claims about what having Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court will “basically” cause.

In fact, I did a Twitter search on “Amy Coney Barrett” and “basically” just to see if the “Basically Ruse” was already up and running. And, yup, it is already underway.

A fan of “The Handmaid’s Tale” tweeted

Amy Coney Barrett is basically Serena Joy without the good wardrobe tbh.

Some “actor/musician” I never heard of tweeted out a Newsweek smear of ACB and tweeted:

#Trump’s #SupremeCourt pick, #AmyConeyBarrett, is basically someone out of the fucking #HandmaidsTale. It’s gotten this bad. #Democrats have zero business expecting us to vote for them if they don’t do EVERYTHING POSSIBLE to stop this #SCOTUS vote!

Someone called “Harveen (Unbearable)” tweeted: 

@realdonaldtrump and @senatemajldr basically gangbanging democracy to take abortion rights away from women and subject them to the coat hanger in dirty backrooms.

Some ResistanceLOL loon tweeted this same tweet to every blue-check Leftie she admires:

Amy Coney Barrett basically wants her personal beliefs to control the private lives of other people. She wants the government to tell people who to love and what to do with their bodies. That’s her judicial philosophy. That’s who Trump is nominating for the Supreme Court

“Award-winning journalist” Ernest Owens also “basically” weighed in:

Amy Coney Barrett is basically SCOTUS Karen personified.

You’re going to see a lot of this in the coming weeks. And every time you do, just remember that everything after “basically” is bullshit.

Because it is bullshit.

If Amy Coney Barrett had a track record to back up these ridiculous histrionics, they would be citing specific court rulings or opinions.

But they never do.

They never provide one single atom of proof that their wild accusations are rooted in reality.

But, see, they don’t have to.

Instead, all they have to do is deploy the word “basically” and call it a day.

The goal here isn’t to honestly vet Amy Coney Barrett or present good-faith arguments against her nomination.  The goal is to enrage the intellectually stunted emotional cripples of the ResistanceLOL – which is why a lot of this will be done on Twitter. Because Twitter is a haven for intellectually stunted emotional cripples. How else do you explain the wild popularity of Twitterlebrity Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

    This may be why they are emotionally stunted cripples. I met a man with a young son, when our sons were taking swimming lessons. Over the course of a few days, I could tell he was well read, and we began to speak about eye-opening books. I told him I didn’t meet many people who read books anymore.

    This approximately 45 year old man, told me he has asked his high school friends when was the last time they read any book. The answer he was receiving, was when we were back in high school!

    I see no path to eliminate the ability of women to murder their babies in the foreseeable future. The ritual murders are going to continue regardless of what some may argue. Eventually the act will be judged by someone much higher up than the U.S. supreme court.

      IF it ever comes to pass, over-turning Roe-v-Wade doesn’t automatically halt abortions. It will return to each State for them to then rule on THEIR terms. That is what one of our ‘lawyer Senators’ said in an interview that, for the life of me I cannot remember if I read it somewhere or heard it on Fox.
      The Sick, Twisted Loony Left segment of America will find ways to fight tooth and nail anything or anyone who tries to stop their sick, twisted loony leftist “power over the ignorant” through the ‘gift’ of an abortion!
      Opps, got carried away again. Sorry for the rant.

    I love your thoughts on this word, Dianny. It one I will forever associate with certain high school types. What ever became of them?

    Those would-be intellectuals, full of themselves because they would preface a thought with “basically,” all the while prattling away at length about nothing at all, not realizing they still sounded like the ditzy cheerleaders they were.

    Where are they now..as we are well into our 50s? I hope they are basically OK.

      ? @ ‘basically OK’ !!!

    If they want to sound all smart and stuff, instead of ‘basically,’ they say, “is tantamount to..” And it’s on! You can write anything you want after that! lol

    Outstanding choice Mr. President.

    Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be the complete opposite of Ruth Buzzy Ginsgerg.

    Instead of legislating from the bench, with leftist socialism, she will follow the rule of law in adherence to the US Constitution. You know, the way the Justices on the Supreme Court a supposed to do.

    LMAO at your definition of ‘basically’!! Because it made me think of Twitter not being used anymore! If you take away all the twitless using ‘basically’, it would eliminate 75% of Twitless post! ?
    That Charlotte person is some piece of work! Couldn’t resist telling one of her echo persons that I could use a good medium/psychic reading like they are doing for Ms Barrett. Unless all those pissed off persons have a close personal relationship with her, how else would they know all of which they speak? ?? ??
    Now you have me wondering how that works using it like the this:
    They don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground, basically. ?
