"The only pardon [Bill Barr] made an effort to preemptively stop was for Edward Snowden."

Fascinating attempt to reconcile the fact that so many non-whites voted for Trump (more than 2016), and that some of the key participants in the Capitol riot and related groups are non-white: "Multiracial whiteness": they're white even when they're not.

In this deranged rant, this MSNBC host say the 2 people responsible for "destroying this country" are Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg. Seems like rather inflammatory rhetoric: all blame for US woes on the all-powerful Zuckerberg and Sandberg:

Censorship never was a left-wing tactic. Opposing censorship was never the hallmark of right-wing values. And censorship is never aimed at one ideology or the other, but at *dissent* from the ruling class wherever it comes from. Listen to Noam Chomsky:

We need to remove people from the internet, take down sites, and close social media platforms for as long as it takes for people to be de-programmed fully back into my consensus.

Two NYT editors lost their jobs in the Summer because they published an op-ed by a US Senator advocating a measure roughly 50% of Americans supported: deploy troops to quell unrest. Now, Washington, DC is fully militarized with troops and everyone seems perfectly happy about it.

Trump left the White House about as weak, cucked, and submissive as it's possible for a grown adult to scamper away.

If you're in the national press and will be on TV at any point today and being to feel the need to weep joyously, just hold it in until you find a private place. Nobody is expecting any adversarial coverage over the next 4 years, but it's just a matter of personal dignity.

How have hundreds of billions upon hundreds of billions of dollars been spent in the name of security since 9/11, along with the deployment of drones and surveillance tech, yet a few hundred protestors can so easily breach the Capitol, just waltzing in and taking it over?

My Resignation From The Intercept The same trends of repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet I co-founded, culminating in censorship of my own articles.

"The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept’s editors censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all Intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression."

One of the creepiest and most dystopian things I've seen since the pandemic began: a terrifying camera-equipped remote-controlled robot patrols Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park in Singapore to -- for now -- warn about social distancing. Look at the fear. Story:

A handful of Silicon Valley oligarchs decide who can and cannot be heard, including the President of the United States. They exert this power unilaterally, with no standards, accountability or appeal. Politics now is begging them to silence adversaries or permit allies to speak:

Here's a former Facebook executive on CNN *explicitly urging that the same tactics that were used in cooperation with the US security state to remove ISIS from the internet now be used against "conservative influencers," to deprogram everyone to believe the CNN/liberal consensus:

Pursuant to the new moral stricture promulgated this week by the NYT & CNN -- that Mount Rushmore is a shameful monument to racism and white supremacy -- both CNN and Bernie Sanders ought to repent for this praise they jointly heaped on it in 2016:

There's absolutely a new War on Terror being initiated -- it'd been lurking for awhile, but it's accelerating now for obvious reasons. This new one is aimed inward, domestically. It entails many of the same frameworks. They're saying it explicitly:
