ANNOUNCEMENT! I have officially joined the land of Substack. It was probably inevitable. But I'm very excited about the opportunities the platform affords. And most of all, looking forward to making insufferable people's heads explode mtracey.substack.com/p/offic…

I asked the cops if this was where the Biden event was taking place today. One replied, coyly, "I was told there are some dignitaries." He pretended he didn't know the President was inside. So stupid
Tried to get into Biden event this afternoon at NJ Transit headquarters in Kearny, NJ and was told by police, “They’re not letting anybody in or out.” When did these public events become de facto private, VIP-only affairs?

This is funny. The mayor of Culver City, CA was recently on patrol due to rumors of a "far-right wing" rally being held in West LA. I'm sure he was very disappointed that the alleged "organized extremists" never showed up. Stay vigilant!!
Rumors of a far-right wing political rally at Carlson Park in Culver City have proven to be only rumors. While the City has taken the possibility seriously, I’m pleased to confirm that you should come out and enjoy another day in paradise, free from organized extremists.

Only just now read this amazing account of the organized crime riot in Manhattan on May 31, 2020 by @JohnBolgerNYC -- a historic event which, like many other events during that period, has been bizarrely under-investigated and is still poorly understood snowden.nyc/p/soho-riots

True: a faction of pundits clearly don't care about censorship for its own sake, they only care insofar as they can make a "hypocrisy" point about media figures they dislike. They also don't care about accuracy, or they would've issued corrections for the fake Intercept story
Replying to @mtracey
There's a reason there was the weird chorus of "let's see what the anti-censorship brigade will do now" from that group of people. They knew it was not authentic and so chose to use it as a gotcha.

This Rolling Stone article that's supposed to contain bombshell new Jan 6 info is a complete dud. It's been public info since well before Jan 6 that dopey GOP members of Congress met with dopey "Stop the Steal" organizers like Ali Akbar. This is just repackaged to seem shocking

How is it at all revelatory, for instance, that Madison Cawthorn's staff communicated with "Stop the Steal" organizers, when Cawthorn was a speaker at the official Jan. 6 "Stop the Steal" rally? What, we previously thought that he just showed up randomly to that event?

Not surprisingly Dem members of Congress wasted no time feverishly sharing the article, which writer Hunter Walker sure seems to appreciate. In doing so they conflate holding meetings about a public, legal political demonstration with having "helped plan" a terrorist attack

Despite the purposely inflammatory framing of the article, no evidence is presented that members of Congress or White House officials were involved in "planning" the mob incursion into the Capitol building, which would make sense because the FBI has also found no organized plot

Taking part in "planning meetings" about a political rally in DC now means that you "helped plot a terrorist attack" and must be expelled/prosecuted, said the person who is super concerned about civil liberties and free speech

Should we take bets on whether Emma ever gets around to addressing this 🙄
I did a Substack post on this very topic as Emma demanded, and it turned out the story was bullshit: mtracey.substack.com/p/to-su…

The Intercept abandoned the most basic rules of journalistic inquiry and rushed out a fake story in order to make a dumb meta point about online media figures they don't like, and the usual suspects glommed on. Days later the fake, defamatory story still hasn't been corrected

Where are the college campus "free speech," anti-cancel culture warriors on this one? I'd imagine there has to be a Rumble video or Substack post on this any minute now.
