The abusive treatment of 1/6 defendants -- imprisoned before trial in solitary -- is largely ignored due to fear of being accused of sympathizing with them if you object: Just as neocons accused those who objected to the abuses of the 1st War on Terror of sympathy for Al Qaeda.
Liberals now have a strong need to malign those who are vaccine hesitant as stupid, reckless troglodytes. They're only comfortable doing that if the unvaccinated are mostly Trump supporters. But the demographics of vaccine resisters are much more complex, so they just lie.
Super interesting: the WH's COVID response official, @benwakana46 , is vocally slamming both the NYT and the WashPost over the last two hours for alarmism and sensationalism about the danger of the Delta variant for vaccinated people and their propensity to spread the virus:
The Founding Father of MSNBC liberalism calls for the banning of one of the country's most popular YouTubers from Twitter and every other internet platform. It's hard to overstate how authoritarian is US liberalism: begging for corporate censorship is one of their leading tools:
Famed lesbian writer @kittypurrzog has been doing important reporting on how medical school professors are increasingly petrified of being reported by students, and that is forcing them to teach things they don't believe (or avoid things they do believe):
This is like some creepy humiliation ritual -- from a medical school professor petrified of punishment:
For the liberals responding to this tweet with rage at the suggestion that the corporate press is guilty of reckless COVID sensationalism, even the Biden WH is denouncing them for it, which is rather striking given that these are typically the WH's most reliable allies.
The Biden administration is telling Facebook which posts it regards as "problematic" so that Facebook can remove them. This is the union of corporate and state power -- one of the classic hallmarks of fascism -- that the people who spent 5 years babbling about fascism support.
Seriously, who the fuck is the White House to be dictating who should and should not be banned from social media platforms, to keep lists of who they think are the spreaders of "misinformation," and then pressure companies they regulate to obey? This is pernicious shit:
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?
Nancy Pelosi “has seen her wealth increase to nearly $115 million from $41 million in 2004,” and much of it comes from her husband's wildly successful trading of stocks and options in companies she influences and about which she has non-public knowledge.
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:
Literally the world's dumbest fucking people - the absolute dumbest, can't get dumber - are those who don't just claim but really believe Wall St. firms pay powerful politicians gigantic sums for banal 45 minute speeches because they want their wisdom rather than their servitude:
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:
Watching the same people who drowned the country for 5 years in deranged conspiracy theories -- Putin had taken over the US through clandestine sexual blackmail -- now declare themselves competent to censor the internet to stop "misinformation": the audacity is almost impressive.
