I wrote my book Eurotrash (out in October!) to push back against the American Left’s championing of contemporary European ideas. One of the most dangerous has been the normalization of censorship.
For example, in Scotland right now, a feminist activist named Marion Millar is facing *2 years in jail* if convicted of sending “transphobic” tweets. She was charged under Section 127/2003 Communications Act, which criminalizes “grossly offensive” messages.
Millar is an accountant and mom of twin autistic boys. One of the tweets she is being prosecuted for features a picture of ribbon placed atop the colors of the suffragette movement.
Across Europe open debate is being suppressed and chilled by the state. Eurotrash is about how these illiberal ideas are being adopted by Americans. You can preorder here: amazon.com/Eurotrash-Amer… Image

It makes sense that @JoeNBC, who is constantly misrepresenting the Second Amendment, thinks abortion “specifically enumerated constitutional right.”
He also doesn't seem to understand the 10th Amendment.

Is there any left-wing anti-Semitism Chait won't whitewash? Even the freaking ADL -- which has done everything it can to wish away the Squad's Jew baiting -- condemns it.
Tlaib says the same people who are keeping down "Palestine" are “exploiting” “regular” citizens here in the US. Is it really "ultrasensitive" to think she's talking about Jews? Who is she talking about?
Ultrasensitive right winger Jonathan Greenblatt...

This guy thinks Jews, who have a consistent presence in Israel going back to at least 1000 bc, are colonizers stealing land.
Hamas is fighting back against what stolen land? They were given autonomy. Jewish "settlers" were removed by force.
The genocidal theocrats who are just "fighting back" are aiming their rockets at towns with ancient Jewish names.

1. The Post didn't even mention this interaction in their initial piece (not sure if they've mentioned it at all, yet) but yet this reporter goes online to regurgitate the admin's GOP-'pounces' talking points.
2. Why would Zarif be astonished to hear about it? Why would he make it up off the record? When did the conversation happen? What else does he say about the Kerry interaction on the Iran International leaked tape? Seems like something a reporter might want to find out.
3. Then again, this reporter has yet to answer who confirmed the nonexistent bounty story for him.
