Charlie Kirk is an antisemitic piece of shit who doesn't care if Jewish people are murdered.
George Soros conspiracy theories are knowing, deliberate efforts to get Jewish people murdered.
it's not subtle or ambiguous.
and it's really depressing and terrifying that the right has completely normalized them, and the mainstream media doesn't people who dabble in them as pariahs.

I wrote about the best Bjork album. patreon.com/posts/42856119
I had kind of forgotten how much I love this album. Bjork cocooning is the best bjork. patreon.com/posts/42856119
I do like Post and Homogenic, but they don't send me the way Vespertine does. patreon.com/posts/42856119

partisan voting habits are so different we can't tell final results from early voting. there is one way that early voting is good for Biden though...
Harry doesn't mention this, but...currently polls show Biden far ahead. uncertainty in polls is partly because the dynamic of the race may change before election day.

but people who vote early aren't affected by a change in dynamics.
if you're way ahead, the more people who vote while you're way ahead the better.

performing empathy and humanity, telling people you're representing them, is a political skill. politicians learn it because they want to win, and because it's part of the job. @jbview was saying this today I think.
Trump's really bad at it because he won't take the time to learn how to do it or try.
it's not that trump is spontaneously inhuman, is I guess the point. being human in public is a performance, and he has decided not to do that,and to instead perform cruelty and indifference.

I just finished Viet Thanh Nguyen's Nothing Ever Dies about war and memory which is pretty fantastic. This convo with him in the guardian is great too. theguardian.com/books/2020/jul…
He likes Maus a lot more than I do, but these things happen...
One really important thing he says is that we need to recognize not just common humanity, but common inhumanity.

this is why I was saying that absent major electoral reform, the GOP is going to start arresting D politicians the next time it's in power. 1
Qanon believes Ds are satanic pedophiles. It's an incredibly volatile movement dedicated to the idea that Ds and the left are inhuman monsters who must be destroyed. and the GOP is embracing them.
it's extremely scary shit, and the sort of radical movement which will absolutely destroy democracy if it is mainstreamed. and the GOP is trying to mainstream it.

Weiss' main ideology is anti leftism, which is core to fascism, an ideology which has not been great for Jewish people. liberalcurrents.com/the-mass-polit…
it wasn't the left who pushed soros conspiracy theories leading to the massacre in Pittsburgh. But Weiss would rather cover for the far right than protect Jewish people.
obviously Jewish people have diverse views, but there's a reason we're overwhelmingly opposed to Trump. Most Jewish people are aware that the main threat is from the right.
