Matt Taibbi achieves his final form
It is absolutely hilarious to me that this guy pushes Grayzone. "We have to work with fascists because the US left is mean" may be one of the funniest (and darkest) arguments I've read in a long time
There is a hell of a lot wrong with the US left. That's undeniable. But "cancel culture made me hype Tucker Carlson and endorse 3rd positionists" is not even close to a rational argument

I really liked his writing growing up. He still got the prose. He lost the thread tho
"Collins' Law"- anyone who says "Cancel Culture" unironically is about to do or say something incredibly stupid

It's as if Elon Musk and Pinochet had a love child together
Some people don't seem to realize this a joke. Mostly

Breathe guys
And this guy: "I have taken literally the only cool thing about crypto currency, that it is in theory bottom up instead of top-down and turned it into a Wall Street pyramid scheme please let me help you make this brain rot idea more hedge fund friendly"

Yeah man. Shit. So this group of neo-facists went to the Misak protests today to yell at them. This would have been just after I left

All I can say is that 99% of the time in Latam people that use templar imagery are ultra fash. No idea why they love that stuff so much
A shame i missed this. I would love to have asked them a few pointed questions on camera
This shit 👇 Image

Live Thread🧵 of today's protests in Bogota #ParoNacional9J I'm near the airport at the scene where the Misak were gassed this morning near a statue of Christopher Columbus. Rain continues

ESMAD looks cute cuddling Image
Tactical community aesthetic enhancement on the two statues in the square, which have been splattered w red paint

Left: Colombia, "the origin of genocide"

Right: Spanish queen Isabella "No to colonialism" ImageImage
Misak people talking to press (in Spanish)

Summary: (paraphrased) the story of colonization here in Colombia has been turned into a hero's take normalized by society. For the Misak, it is a story of blood and repression, much like the protests

Big marches planned in Bogotá tomorrow in what the Strike Committee is calling the "Taking of Bogotá"

I will be trying to make it. I might have to schedule some emergency dental surgery first tho. Outta nowhere I'm suddenly completely laid up w some serious pain
"get a tooth pulled, go the protests after" makes a good story tho

THREAD: I've been covering big protests movements in Latin America a little over three years, and there are a few things that ALWAYS happen in regards to State claims about what's going on. I'd like to break down a few because it's timely to current Colombian protests:
1) THIS IS FUNDED BY [insert external enemy]!!!

States do not like the idea that movements against them can arise organically or ppl have agency. Even more than just PR (though it's that too) those in power prefer to blame their failings on invisible nefarious outsiders
I saw this in Venezuela (CIA)
Ecuador in 2019 (People couldn't believe indigenous were capable enough to shut down the country, so...Maduro and Correa)
Colombia in 2019 (Also Maduro)

Somehow in each of these events a faraway power convinced 100s of 1000s to take to the streets?
