I started AfghanCooks.com last February because when I would Google “Afghanistan” I saw nothing but war and trauma. Our country has been through a lot but we are so much more than war.

Think about it: a school board in 2022 proactively deciding to honor people who committed treason in the service of preserving slavery & white supremacy. Democracy can backslide. nbcnews.com/news/us-news/vir… via @nbcnews

When the former Attorney General William Barr, a Catholic, played a key role in reviving the federal death penalty I don't remember conservative bishops clamoring to deny him Communion. 1/4

Follow the logic. If a law is passed making it harder to vote, and the people worried about such obstacles organize voters to overcome that threat — a backfire effect that's been seen before — then these results undercut the original claim that this law makes it harder to vote.
Voting is surging in Georgia's upcoming primary, undercutting Democratic claims that a new election law would make it harder to cast a ballot, my latest from the Peach State, with @mrbrownsir washingtonpost.com/politics/…

The authoritarian leader of Hungary giving a speech to US conservatives—who admire him so much that they crossed the ocean to hold their conference in his country—and saying "we" have to take Washington and Brussels is a perfect illustration of how this movement is transnational.
“We have to take back the institutions in Washington and Brussels. We must find allies in one another and coordinate the movements of our troops.” @floragaramvolgy reports on Orbán’s alarming speech to the Republicans at CPAC Hungary. Via @guardian. theguardian.com/us-news/2022…

I know it happened a while ago, but I feel like our nation and our media never fully processed how insane it was that Donald Trump, the sitting president, called up Republicans in red states and basically asked them to fake their 2020 vote totals so he'd win.

You can argue a lot of things about 2020, but the fact that a former president, a Supreme Court Justice's wife, and other prominent Republicans actively encouraged state @GOP officials to outright falsify an election should be a 24/7 media story.

“Consider the source,” is one of those warhorse phrases that needs to be used more.

We really do need a phrase for the unmasked tech-lord-fascist. Their sudden emergence is rattling and they seem to be collectively spiraling; like it’s a competition to see who can bring the most authoritarian crazy washingtonpost.com/politics/…

It is so wild to me that they're holding CPAC in Hungary, openly celebrating Orban's defeat of democracy, openly planning to do the same in the US ... it's just all out in the open now. And still the media can't seem to convey it clearly to the public.

Dems need to make it very clear that when Rs vote against taking tough measures to stop domestic extremists, they are themselves domestic extremists. That when they vote against providing baby formula to those in need, they are in favor of starving our children.

My husband Robert always used to tell our kids he was so lucky to have them, and my daughter @jcarteraltman would say, “No, Dad. We’re the lucky ones.” She wrote this song for her father and was able to record it as a gift for him before he died... (1/2) dpg.ffm.to/jcaluckyone

I try to avoid sharing Melon related anything, but this is timeline context to the new story about the 🍈🚀 sheds some light on the motivation behind his most recent and furiously petulant fits of pique. Play victim before it hits, frame as political to delegitimize. Tiresome.
