Went into this Clubhouse. Truly one of the most bigoted discussions I have ever heard. A bunch of people basically dismissing and justifying any discrimination that isn’t targeted directly at their community.
One of the few intelligent speakers on the stage points out that Asian-Americans have also face plenty of discrimination in history including the Chinese Exclusion Act and Japanese-American internment. Basically gets dismissed and told it’s irrelevant.
The most telling part was one of the girls justifying her ridiculous statements by saying her professor has told her that’s what’s right. It’s rather clear that this neoracism is being enshrined on college campuses and we are worse off because of it.
Really smart girl pointed out that there are clearly some people have tied victimhood to their identity and get offended by the idea that there are other victims. That leads them to excuse violence against others. Have trouble viewing people as individuals.
An Asian girl mentioned the Colorado shooter was Muslim. Other speakers get offended she mentioned that fact and all agreed that they looked up a picture of him and he’s clearly “white”. That was after the moderator demanded to know whether the girl lived in America.
Anyways, I can’t listen to anymore of this. Hate and ignorance aren’t limited to one group or race. Decent people should be able to recognize it and speak out against hate regardless the source or target. And we need more people to view others as humans & individuals.

For the 100th time, Alex Berenson is anti-vaxxer idiot that consistently lies to his followers because he assumes they will never check his claims.
Berenson: Cases are starting to rise with vaccinations, just like in Israel.

Reality: Cases have crashed overall in Israel and the US. And far more so among the elderly, which are the population that have been vaccinated. Small inc are among unvaccinated groups due to variants.
Israel went from almost 10K new cases per day in late January to 1-2K per day over the last week. From~70 deaths per day to less than 10 in the same period. You have to be a complete idiot or intentionally dishonest to not recognize what vaccines have done.

Rupar misled tens of thousands of people into thinking this was the officer giving his own view of the suspect’s motive. That narrative got picked up by several major outlets. And his defense is that the officer wasn’t directly quoting, just paraphrasing.
And then journalists that fell for that false narrative decided to go further by stalking through the social media of this private officer and smearing him as a racist in several major outlets because he once posted a picture of what he thought was a funny shirt re Covid/China.
I’m rarely surprised anymore, but one of the more despicable media pile-ons I’ve seen recently. Especially because it was targeted at a private figure that happened to be the spokesperson for the Sheriffs Department on the case.

This is the type of stuff that really makes me dislike the press.

First, the promote a false viral claim from Rupar about what he said today.
Then, they try to direct a mob at this cop over a t-shirt he once wore in a photo.
The reporters and editors behind this piece could never withstand this type of scrutiny, but they abuse their platform to go after and try to destroy this random police spokesman.

It’s completely irresponsible and an abuse of their platform.
And it’s worth noting that the NY Post got this nonsense from Buzzfeed, which was even worse in labeling it a “racist” shirt.

Is anyone going to follow up on this talking point?

How does a party with a split Senate, a fractional majority in the House, and the WH not being able to pass radical bills without any minority support = Democracy not functioning?

R's haven't used the filibuster since 2014.
The talking filibuster is silly. If you think the 60 vote threshold is too high because things are too partisan, lower it to 55. But don't pretend like not passing country-shifting bills with a tiny majority is somehow the end of Democracy.
Also, so much for the people who argued that Biden would defend norms and institutions as President. Suddenly there is a lot of picking and choosing about which norms and institutions are worthy of defending.

So I've seen left-wing and media Twitter repeatedly respond to Salazar's tweet with this, mostly because they are ignorant about most of the stuff they tweet about.

The bill Salazar is talking about had nothing to do with the $1.9 trillion dollar package that was just passed.
Salazar had proposed to extend the repayment time for Covid-19 related EIDL loans by one year. The SBA just announced they would do exactly that as a matter of policy.

It was an administrative change, not a legislative one.…
That's putting aside a discussion over whether one can support/push provisions within a bill while opposing the final bill. But just check how many blue checks responded ignorantly suggesting this was about the recent package.

All the usual suspects.

These guys spend all day spreading nonsense conspiracies that media figures and most of the left promote without investigation. This is no different than the voter fraud stuff, only gets more prominent support.
FL was more transparent w their data than most states so you could see both methods, but hospitalizations/deaths speak for themselves (FL is below national average).

Deaths claim was nonsense from May 2020 (!!!) where TBT confused excess deaths w Covid deaths over short period.
Again, repeating the same baseless conspiracies for a year now while we have the real data in front of us. All because they'd rather keep digging than admit they were wrong about DeSantis and the FL approach.

Meanwhile, wealthy people from all over spent all winter in FL.
