"It is important that we identify and reject this specific bad thing, also we are expressly using it as a catch-all label for everything we abhor"
It's a stunningly transparent reactionary grift. They are tweeting their own notes on a criminal fucking conspiracy, so to speak
Meanwhile even the supposedly least crazy GOP Congressmen are tweeting out bizarre nonsense like this. Almost as if the rigid ideological conformity that threatens our future is coming from inside the house

Nothing similar in WI at the moment, but a few years ago the chair of the Assembly higher ed committee went on a syllabus inquisition at UW-Madison and tried to get a professor fired over a course title. Absolutely vile behavior (he still chairs that cmte) jsonline.com/story/news/edu… ImageImage

Maybe someone who is good at stonks can help me understand a key piece of the mechanics and practice of short selling: the motivations of the underlying asset holder (1/a few)
So you own an asset and you agree to lend it to someone else. In exchange for the fee you collect, you lock yourself into your investment in the underlying asset. You have a contract that says you get the asset back at thus-and-such time, whatever its value may be.
Meanwhile your counterparty has only entered into the contract because they believe your asset will decrease in value.
