Talk:Big lie

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Terry Pratchett, well DEATH in Hogfather, quotes that you have to believe the little lies before you believe the big lies. I.e., you believe the little lies like the Hogfather and Tooth Fairy and so on in order to believe the big lies like mercy, justice, duty, that sort of thing. Don't think it has anything to do with the propaganda term, but worth pointing out. Scarlet A.pngpostate 20:42, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps Trump's assertion that he was responsible for proving that Obama was was born in the US should be here?--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 20:16, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Nah. I already added it to the summary of the Obama citizenship denial article yesterday. You could insert a link to that article under "See also", though. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 20:49, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

How to reference without going Godwin?[edit]

I'm definitely seeing a lot of Big Lies floating about (most recently that the riot at the US capitol was a false flag operation organized by the Antifa Central Planning Division (a division of SorosClintonCo)), but the Nazi origins of the term make me very squirmy. - Immigrant laborer (talk) 16:47, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
