Obama remains the uncontested champ of mellifluous demagoguery. Nobody comes close.
Former President @BarackObama: "We don't have time to be wasted on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage, the right-wing media's pedals to juice their ratings."

Virginia public schools have pushed critical race theory in the classroom, suppressed concerned parents at school board meetings, and covered up for a gender-fluid sexual predator, who allegedly raped two innocent girls.

Notice they don’t complain about “mass incarceration” anymore—it’s “mass criminalization.” It’s not enough to empty prisons. They want to eliminate the category of crime.
THREAD: My newest op-ed is out. "If we have any hope of ending the inhumane era of mass criminalization, we cannot overlook or underestimate the role of the media in perpetuating it." In it I offer a critique but also roadmap for more just journalism. More:thenation.com/article/societ…

Everyone must just say no
You see it here. Their plan is that the “pandemic” and their attached power is never going to end. Keep the panic going.

Biden's border crisis just made history. CBP numbers for Sept: 192K arrests at the border. That ends FY2021 at 1.73 million total arrests, the most on record, ever. The vast majority, more than 1.1 million, were single adults. More here - cbp.gov/newsroom/stats/south…

This is a blatant and demagogic lie. We have nothing within even spitting distance of Jim Crow in America—in fact, nearly the opposite.
“Jim Crow in the 21st century is now a sinister combination of voter suppression and election subversion,” Biden says at the 10th anniversary of the dedication of the MLK Memorial. “They’re targeting not just voters of color…but every voter who doesn’t vote the way they want”

An important piece from Pedro. “This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated” has now been shown to be what it always was: a blatant lie. And now millions of people are getting/going to get fired for it. It’s madness. We are not a serious country.
For @ChroniclesMag, I spoke with nurses, doctors, firefighters, cops, and military officers facing discipline or termination for refusing vaccination. Their unions and superiors are against them, and the country they've served has turned its back on them chroniclesmagazine.org/blog/…

Of course it was always a lie that Critical Race Theory “isn’t taught” in elementary and high schools.
Public school bureaucrats are lying to parents, claiming that they aren't teaching CRT, while secretly evangelizing the principles of CRT in the classroom.

The Johnson Amendment is probably unconstitutional, but interesting thread nonetheless.
Vice President Kamala Harris has taped an endorsement of McAuliffe that is being played at hundreds of African American churches around the state. The problem is the “Johnson Amendment” makes such political pitches in churches a violation of federal law. jonathanturley.org/2021/10/1…

Despite the well-funded efforts underway to demean the American heritage, there is abundant reason for hope: state legislatures are taking notice on the dangers of the CRT movement and parents are standing up. There is hope yet. americanmind.org/salvo/found…
