"Canada also took in Nazis and Nazi collaborators, including at least 2,000 Ukrainian Waffen-SS soldiers and collaborators from numerous other nations. In Canada's case, the collaborators served an additional role: suppressing domestic labor unions."

This is the podcast for those who need a break, who want to think deeply, hear musicians contemplate big, important issues, look at art and listen to music, all beautifully mixed and produced by @maurafcurrie  . #SoundThoughtsonArt 

Someone told me that "inner city" isn't a dog whistle for "Black" and all I could think about was this Key and Peele sketch.

"America didn't merely take in Nazis -- in some cases, we welcomed and protected them; we kept them safe from justice. It's far past time we acknowledged it. We can't get to 1619 if we can't get past 1945."

"In 1959, when the ADL brought up Ďurčanský's past in an attempt to prevent him from receiving an immigration visa, the State Department replied that "Membership in or affiliation with the defunct Nazi Party in itself no longer constitutes a ground of ineligibility."

So, MTG has put up an anti-trans sign, designed to cause pain to her colleague. Her close friend was involved in the 1/6 uprising. And I think about the fact that she is a representative. She is there to represent the people in Dalton and Rome, etc. She is speaking for them.

When you are telling an entire group of people how they "should" feel, you are in trouble.

When will people stop using "cancel culture" to refer to every instance when someone is fired or doesn't get a job or contract or club membership or seat on a park bench? Someone else got the last muffin, so you're cancelled?

Couple things to remember: Antifa is not an organized group. You don't "join" Antifa, which means there's a chance you can be labelled Antifa by law enforcement simply because you are protesting. 1/2

“I’m the same Megan Rapinoe you’ve known for years… I haven’t experienced over-policing, racial profiling or the sight of a family member’s body lying dead in the street, but I can't stand idly by while others have to deal with that kind of heartache.”


A white man who deliberately sped his car through a crowd of racial injustice protesters, telling the judge they needed an "attitude adjustment," will avoid prison and have the incident erased from his record if he stays out of trouble for three years.

Today, hundreds of public radio employees, past and current, join together to demand reform to our industry. Please read our open letter: "An Anti-Racist Future: A Vision and Plan for the Transformation of Public Media"

This is bizarro situation. Michael Moore, the Pope, Sia, and Dick Cheney are all in agreement on a political issue.

@tedcruz  Aren't you the same guy who called for a boycott of Nike and a boycott of Harley Davidson? Didn't Trump call for a boycotts of Macy's and Apple? You both felt Colin Kaepernick should lose his job for exercising free speech, right?
