This I presume includes revenge porn, nonconsensual public recordings, and videos where the consent or age of participants cannot be validated.

This seems like a good idea.
What's disturbing is that questionable videos of unverified origin were literally the majority of their content.
"In early 2021, NCMEC will release our total number of reported CSAM incidents alongside numbers from other major social and content platforms. We will also continue to work with law enforcement globally to report and curb any issues of illegal content."
So next year PornHub is gonna tell everyone how much child porn they hosted.

Simple fact is that if a rich person is committed to uplifting the poor, they can't stay rich at all.

You can't do both ethically.

It was kind of Jesus's tagline.
This is why philanthropy is bullshit.
If your goal is to help as many impoverished people as possible, then any money you had above and beyond that which you need to not struggle would go to others.

If we're not mincing words then perhaps a moment for the fact that White American Christianity has ALWAYS served white nationalism and was the underpinning for not only slavery, but every single racist initiative since.
Find a me an avowed white nationalist and I'll point you to the Christian church they pray in on Sunday.
Trump didn't lead white American Christians astray.

He unleashed them. He told them they didn't have to whisper anymore or pretend that the "neighbors" they were commanded to love included folks darker than them.

Trump merely validated them.

It never for a second made sense to me that the adorable little disease vectors who wipe their face fluids on everything and everyone every day were somehow immune from spreading Covid-19.
Kids on the whole, can be COUNTED on to not wear masks properly or consistently, to exchange fluids casually, to yell and scream in enclosed spaces and fail to cover their noses and mouths properly when they cough and sneeze.

I don't know how we ever discounted this.
Add to this that kids are undertested, that their parents don't consistently keep them out of school when they're sick and that everyone loves to hug and kiss them and it begins to seem incredible that we decided their contribution is negligible.

And even WITH voter suppression, only 28% of REGISTERED voters identify as GOP
When you take into account the widespread disenfranchisement specifically targeted at Black people primarily, minorities secondarily and Democrats as a whole, you'll realize the whole game is over-representation.

The difference between politicians and judges is that judges demand receipts.
One of the things the American public doesn't generally understand (and which the anti-understanding GOP doesn't broadcast) is that partisanship doesn't work the same way in the judicial branch as it does in the legislative.
Partisan politicians will just do whatever the hell they want to serve their party.

They aren't concerned about consistency or precedent. They're pure political agents.

Partisan judges operate differently.

If you're in a cult, the choice is easy. Just... Not the one you're looking for.
The thing is. Once you buy into the idea of a grand conspiracy, then literally anyone can be tied into it as necessary

To a cultist, yes. All those people and groups are absolutely likely to be engaged in a massive conspiracy.
The thing is, there is at least one
provable instance somewhere of bad behavior within every single one of those groups.

It doesn't even have to be related.

All there needs to be is enough to hang a doubt on.
