No heroes. No easy answers. When fascism came to America Trump was wrapped in the flag and Pence carried the cross. Yeah I'm anti fascist. You? No fukery zone.

I'll have the Tequila, thanks.

For those of us familiar with 20th century Germany and the work of Carl Schmitt, the stuff coming out of the right today is just chilling

PSA: If an iPhone is stolen, DO NOT REMOVE IT FROM YOUR ACCOUNT. Some underworld cretin may make empty threats about data they don't have, but it's to TRICK YOU to MARK THE PHONE UNUSED SO THEY CAN SELL IT. Do not respond. They will sell it for parts instead. They're powerless.

"It's rare that the negotiations over these types of prisoner swaps are out in the open like this, and honestly, that probably gives Russia a lot of the leverage," @SecureDemocracy's David Salvo speaks with @CNN following Brittany Griner's guilty verdict: invidious.fdn.fr/znEv5vcVxzs

This is really wild.
BREAKING: Mesa County GOP head says multiple people told him Clerk Tina Peters' rep Sherronna Bishop, podcaster Joe Oltmann, and Stand for the Constitution members plotted to "storm the Clerks Office and destroy the Voting Machines," in Facebook exchange with Bishop's husband.

As I have said, the constitutionality, under the Texas state constitution, of the Texas punitive damages cap is debatable. Lots of wrinkles, which would have to be litigated out. Here are some of them. 1/

Let me just say for the record: In the conversations I've had with New Yorker staff, they told me that @erinoverbey was a *favorite* colleague, in part because she took an important stand. Those people don't speak for everyone, but they are people I trust on issues of race.
Replying to @erinoverbey
I've been accused of “whistleposturing” and not having any interest in diversity aside from, Oh, what was it, saving my own skin or career or what have you. Really? @newyorker has known for months how public I am—and this is the best line of attack the crack minds come up with?

It's very Republican. A distinguishing characteristic.
Cool, but kinda weird how Dick Cheney only ever bucks Republican orthodoxy in public when it directly impacts one of his kids

Once again, Ted Cruz making it clear to everyone out there that he's more interested in being a Daily Wire podcaster than a senator.

It’s amazing how fluent illiberal and authoritarian foreign leaders—Orban, Putin, etc.—are with right-wing US culture war rhetoric. This weirdly transnational nationalism, unified by joint hatreds, is a defining feature of our age.

It should probably be a bigger deal that Viktor Orban is speaking at CPAC Dallas today. His own minister resigned over his Nazi style rhetoric decrying "race mixing." The overt white supremacy is not a bug, it's a feature.

No more euphemisms. Say it clearly: These Trumpist candidates for governor and secretary of state are running on a vow to ensure that as long as they have control over elections, no Democrat will ever win a presidential election in their state again. washingtonpost.com/opinions/…

IIRC people were focused on a different reverend.
In late 2008, the religious associations of Sarah Palin, picked by John McCain as his vice presidential running mate, became timely. "Expert" sociologists proclaimed her to be a generic Pentecostal. They weren't at all looking at what was going on at the churches Palin attended

Speaking of Chad Wolf's missing texts ... in 2020 I wrote about his imperious texts to me as he led a DHS crusade against BLM after George Floyd's murder. Wolf was key in forging an alternate Fox News reality where Jan. 6 was nothing next to BLM protests. thedailybeast.com/chad-wolfs…
