I heard that a certain "defense group" will be meeting at Swami's in La Mesa at 5pm today, wearing yellow vests

The yellow vests thing caught my eye in particular because

So a local pushing "useless eaters" tropes is trying to organize vigilante groups to "protect" local businesses

@Just_Jes  @MarsidesE  @thejtlewisx  @Yamichea  @realDonaldTrumpctly . These bootlicking creeps don't even understand what they're talking about. Completely out of their leagues.

"“Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders,” said John Evans, PBA president."

Just doing their jobs huh, where have we heard that one before?

This is what police are doing to journalists out in the field


Today I got the idea to put together a thread of every public official, elected or appointed, who is advocating for or trying to normalize mass die-offs as a right and just sacrifice to make for the sake of The Economy (tm). I'll start with Chris Christie

We literally had to put this out as a fact check today. Was Barack Obama President During Hurricane Katrina?

So I haven’t been talking about this much but I’m an expert witness in several cases against Alex Jones and I’m in Austin for his deposition today. I’m not going to discuss it too much but if you want to know how it went, his closing statement was, “Epstein didn’t kill himself.”

Roger Ogden, the guy organizing the pro-COVID "protest" in San Diego, is a known white supremacist who has astroturfed a number of "Patriot" rallies over the years. Local news does a major disservice not explaining who he is - like he's just some guy.

Rep. Ben Carpenter (R-Nikiski): “People want to say Hitler was a white supremacist. No. He was fearful of the Jewish nation, and that drove him into some unfathomable atrocities.”

Even the tenor of the reporting is exactly the same as it was in 2003. “no American casualties, Iraqis only.” Listen to yourselves. That is dehumanization. You are feeding a narrative and abetting disinformation.
