This is just weird and creepy. Why are they all posting identical language about how proud they are to work at the Washington Post, like from a script handed down by a cult leader? ImageImageImageImage
They're still doing this. More and more: all saying exactly the same thing with the exact same words, publicly professing their love for the Washington Post in identical language. This is not healthy behavior. Why are they doing this? ImageImageImageImage
I suppose this is how these WashPost reporters have decided to condemn @feliciasonmez for her 5 days of maniacal attacks on her colleagues and attempt to get several fired, but it's bizarre how they all use the same coordinated cryptic language and waited this long. Cowardly.
The Post's @feliciasonmez is now mocking all of her newsroom colleagues for using identical language to defend management against her.

May this never end! The vindictive sociopathy of these vipers on vivid display here is what prevails in all of these liberal corporate outlets. Image
The Washington Post's civil war continues. Long may it rage.🔥 ImageImage
The utterly unhinged insanity you're seeing drive this five-day Washington Post civil war is the prevailing ethos at all of these liberal corporate media outlets, most elite campuses, etc. It just usually gets contained before the public can witness it in its full derangement.

Ukraine's military has long been employing a disturbed American, @SarahAshtonLV, as its English spokesperson.

We covered last week their insane, deranged threats to hunt down and punish all "Russian propagandists," meaning anyone (including Americans) critical of Ukraine:
Before the war, Zelensky closed opposition media. Under martial law, they now abducted a US citizen/journalist critical of Zelensky: Gonzalo Lira, who this person helped arrest.

Kudos to @JDVance1 for denouncing this repression against Americans:

@JDVance1 While Ukraine demands more and more money and weapons from US citizens, they have repeatedly put US journalists and politicians on dangerous official "Russian propagandist" lists for questioning the US role.

What odd behavior for a "democracy":…

One of the most repellent things I've seen in US politics is how Dems and media allies made such a flamboyant, melodramatic display of feigning concern about the border, then just stopped soon as Biden became president, even though little changed:…
Whenever I'd ask left-liberal colleagues and friends what Trump did worse than Bush/Cheney or justified Nazi claims, they'd say: treatment of migrants at the border.

That AOC did this, then never once bothered even to pretend by visiting the border under Biden, is gross: Image
And now you have all kinds of blue-city Mayors -- who constantly denounced those concerned about mass migration in their communities of being white nationalists -- screaming loudly about how they can't support immigrants and how the US Govt must stop it immediately.

Twitter's former chief censor, Yoel Roth, has a NYT op-ed today lamenting the major backlash against the censorship regime that was installed after the 2016 election, when Dems and establishment institutions decided a free internet was too dangerous:…
Some of the attacks on Roth, and violent threats, were wrong. Too much was personalized on him. The villain is the censorship regime Dems and other institutions of power imposed after 2016.

But when you prohibit people from speaking, you force them outside democratic processes. Image
The backlash against this systemic online censorship regime is long overdue and still too timid. It's genuine despotism.

But it's happening. Tech executives feel pressured to reject Dems' demands. Free speech platforms are thriving.

And the appellate court ruling is crucial.👇 Image

If you thought the tens of billions of US dollars unaccountably flying around Ukraine was as a huge boondoggle to Raytheon, Boeing, CIA and Kiev oligarchs and politicians, wait until to you see what the vultures of BlackRock and JP Morgan do with Ukraine's reconstruction:🤑🤑🤑
Irrelevant coincidence…
One more boring and irrelevant coincidence

I was unaware of the legal obligation which requires all private citizens and businesses to act in immediate, complete and unthinking alignment with the US Govt's foreign policy goals, and to immediately obey all war requests from US "allies."

That sounds rather...

If all Americans are duty-bound to give Ukraine whatever it wants, what to make of citizens who rejected Zelensky's pleas to go to Ukraine, pick up arms, and help them fight the Russian Army?

Lack of soldiers is a major reason Ukraine isn't winning:…
It's also genuinely alarming how little value Western elites now assign to the possibility of a major escalation of this war in Ukraine to other parts of Europe and/or the possibility of nuclear weapons being used.

They're acting like children playing war games online.

In one of the most significant 1st Amendment victories in years, a 5th Circuit panel (only one of whom is a Trump appointee) rules that the Biden WH, the FBI, CDC, and Surgeon General violated Americans' core free speech rights by coercing Big Tech to censor on their command. Image
The appellate court largely upheld a court ruling from June. In doing so, it explained: courts have "rarely been faced with a coordinated campaign" of censorship "of this magnitude orchestrated by federal officials." The result was "suppressing millions of free speech postings." Image
The court barred the agencies it found to have threatened and "commandeered" Big Tech censorship -- the WH, the FBI, the CDC, and the Surgeon General -- from further coercion of this type.

It was particularly scathing about the FBI's censorship of domestic political speech.
