Sorry, media, the great reset is real


When conservatives pushed back last week on a Democratic plan to ban gas stoves, the Left and its media allies jumped into action. We were told that no one is banning gas stoves and also that said stoves should be banned. Oh, and that this is just another conspiracy theory cooked up by conservatives for their culture war.

Believers argue that measures including pandemic lockdowns and vaccine mandates are tools to consolidate power and undercut individual sovereignty.”
