As I said back in 2015 when Trump was rising: Tyrese and Juan also lost their jobs at the factory due to globalization but somehow they didn't suddenly have a racism switch go off the way too many of their white coworkers "suddenly" did. It's like it was there all along.

She says this every 3 days, no matter the story. Median salary in the industry is like $48K. Tons of contract, freelance work compared to many other industries. You never hear anyone say, 'hey, maybe the welders are out of touch with public policy?'

Probably a coincidence, but a popular early 20th c. fiddle tune was the "Money Musk," a favorite of white nationalist antisemite Henry Ford. Dating to the 18th c., it is linked to Scotland's Monymusk barony, a house whose name means a "noxious weed." invidious.fdn.fr/hdbtzjrtlCk

Quote from ex-CSIS: Davis said Canada's security apparatus struggles to detect lone actors in part because many of its counterterrorism tools were set up to detect terrorist cells or organizations. 'So we haven't fully adapted, I would say, to the lone actor environment'

That is...frighteningly good
Exhibit A why the ban shouldn't be rescinded. At least 2 active probes involving Trump. What if he torpedoes them by tweet? Compromises safety of officials, jurors? (Unrelated to Trump) NY public health commissioner needs security right now, that's how unhinged people are
