Hello, if you are viewing this profile for the first time. I mostly tweet about issues related to extremism, terrorism, hate, & civil rights. I may occasionally attempt snark or humor; it helps me stay grounded while dealing w/dark subjects. I try to be a decent person. Welcome.

His weird ask was for a bowl of green M&Ms and a leather-bound copy of Black's Law Dictionary.

Someone is now posting as "Q" again, so there's that. I guess when this is the only way they can feel important, they can't just let it go. nytimes.com/2022/06/25/techn… "The Leader of the QAnon Conspiracy Theory Returns"

Let’s be real: there’s a WHOLE lot of men whose lives, careers, and families have benefited from an abortion (including several “pro-life” GOP Congressmen). Men, we need you right now. You can get through in rooms others can’t. Your power matters. Speak up. This is about us all.

10 years is quite a lot. However, if he had been charged with possessing an unregistered destructive device in furtherance of a crime of violence, I think there is a 30-year minimum, so perhaps he was lucky. He will also serve his fed time concurrent with his state time.

Some people seem to be misinterpreting this tweet. The Senator seems to be arguing that sometimes it is good to reverse precedent, as Brown reversed Plessy. He doesn't appear to be arguing that Brown should be reversed.

The difference between studying historical right-wing extremism in the U.S. and studying present right-wing extremism in the U.S. (I do both) is that when you study *historical* extremism you can take comfort in the fact that their efforts largely came to naught.

This is despicable. There is no other way to phrase this. There should be consequences.
