On the possibility that some of the fake-news effect is due to mis-identification of items as fact vs. opinion:

Dan - your hosts would be interested to know that Dominic Lüthard, chairman of the far-right Swiss Nationalist Party (PNOS) was an invited speaker at the Nationalist Solutions Conference that just wrapped up in Tennessee.
https://theroperreportsite.wordpress.com/2018/06/17/tn-nationalist-solutions-conference-wraps-up-today/

No Swiss media were present, but the German Stern sent a reporter and a TV crew, as of course did the Chattanooga stations. As I'm sure you've never heard of the PNOS, it denounces “the multicultural society” as “a perversion of natural coexistence”. Far as I can tell the party broadly shares the agenda detailed in this 1920 book: https://archive.org/stream/risingtideofcolo00stoduoft/risingtideofcolo00stoduoft_djvu.txt

From the introduction:
"..The subjugation of white lands by colored
armies may ... occur, especially if the white
world continues to rend itself with internecine wars.
However, such colored triumphs of arms are less to
be dreaded than more enduring conquests like migra-
tions which would swamp whole populations and turn
countries now white into colored man's lands irre-
trievably lost to the white world."

Problem isn't so much the fake news, it's the real news banned by PC. At any rate it's timely considering the ongoing migrant debacle at the Southern borders, both US and EU.
