For @BrookingsInst's #TechSTream, @vwirtschafter and I document the spread of the Kremlin's preferred narrative of the NordStream sabotage (the US did it) spread across popular political podcasts in the US

🧵👇

brookings.edu/techstream/u-s…
Upshot:

Following the explosions, 12 popular political podcasts have devoted 18 episodes to the theory.

Less than one quarter of these episodes refuted the baseless theory.

Nearly 40% fully blamed the United States.
That is to say, over the past week:

14 episodes in our dataset shared content about the explosions that was conspiratorial in nature

Of them, 7 wholly endorsed that idea that United States is the most likely culprit

Only 4 episodes sought to refute the claim Image

This is an excerpt from my new book, *Culture War, Class War 2022: Truth & Generations*

it's about how people say, "the lesser of two evils is still evil."

being used currently, e.g., to promote Jill Stein over any Democratic candidate.

but it's b.s.

“…the Republicans would encourage a narrative in the country & in the social media that goes like this: “The lesser of two evils is still evil.” Which has it that all evil things are equally bad.”

“Say, you had to decide btwn 1 person on a hill being bombed out of existence vs 100 people on a nearby hill getting killed. This thinking on lesser evils being evil would have it that both instances—100 dead versus 1 death—are equally evil.”

L'ex-président Donald #Trump vient donc de déclarer qu'il gracierait et offrirait des excuses de l'Etat aux émeutiers de l'insurrection du Capitole qui ont été poursuivis en justice et/ou condamnés. Les choses sont désormais claires...1/ washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
2...pour #Trump, l'insurrection contre le Congrès pour interrompre le processus électoral était parfaitement légitime et s'il est réélu en 2024, comme d'autres indices en témoignent, la #démocratie US changera profondément de nature pour se diriger vers 1 forme illibérale.
3. On peut cependant s'interroger sur la pertinence pour #Trump d'1 telle déclaration, sans doute voulue pour concurrencer le discours du président #Biden ce soir de défense de la démocratie libérale. A double titre...

State of Taiwan's Nov 2022 #midterms: the ruling DPP is facing an uphill battle.

There are 22 cities up for grabs. Of which the DPP is only consistently leading in 4. It's either neck-and-neck or losing in the rest....

This picture will of course change as the campaign goes on, and we need more & better polls, especially on less populous cities that get overlooked by pollsters. /2

1) the DPP controls the presidency & legislature,

1. Fin juillet 2022. La commission d'enquête parlementaire sur l'insurrection du Capitole pense avoir accumulé les preuves contre #Trump, comme instigateur d'1 ébauche de coup d'Etat. Mais l'ex-président reste indemne et organise sa (re)prise du pouvoir. 👇nytimes.com/2022/07/22/us/…
2. Il y a 2 horizons pour la commission d'enquête parlementaire sur l'insurrection du Capitole: amener des poursuites judiciaires du ministère fédéral de la Justice contre #Trump et le disqualifier politiquement auprès des élus et électeurs républicains. Pour l'heure, semi échec
3. Certes, la position de #Trump auprès des électeurs républicains semble un peu affaiblie dans les sondages mais plus par lassitude quant à ses perpétuelles affaires que sur la ligne politique nationaliste, "anti-système" et identitaire, toujours plébiscitée...

🇺🇸 🚨Quelques impacts de la décision de la Court suprême américaine de supprimer le droit à l’avortement, pour y voir clair et prendre la mesure du niveau d’injustice et de barbarie. 🧵➡️ currentaffairs.org/2022/06/the-su…
1/ avorter n’est pas interdit par la court suprême, mais le droit à l’avortement (deja fortement affaiblis dans de nombreux états) est supprimé. Les États sont donc de nouveau libres de légiférer comme ils l’entendent sur le sujet.
2/ la décision est injuste : les femmes riches/ aisées peuvent encore avorter dans un état qui autorise l’avortement (ou illégalement par des circuits privés). Les femmes des classes moyennes et laborieuses sont coincées. vox.com/platform/amp/2…

In the @ConversationUS, @profkmichalka, @janehongphd, @laura_e_alex & Luis Romero state that the treatment of Ukrainian vs. other asylum seekers has prompted criticism that the Biden admin is favoring white, European, mostly Christian refugees over others.
theconversation.com/how-race-and-r…
A @PRRIpoll spotlight by @jcoleysociology found that many Christian colleges discriminate against LGBTQ students, and govt policies allow them to do so.

A recent study found that over 1/3 of LGBTQ students had been bullied or harassed in school.
