At least three of the California governor’s wine companies are held by SVB, and a bank president sits on the board of his wife’s charity.

SVB is Ro’s super rich liberal district. He needs these donors for his prospective senate run.

#TwitterFiles 17: A chilling cocktail of #censorship and #Hinduphobia.

The latest in my @SundayGuardian column #ChicagoDiary.

A thread. 🧵1/10

When journalist @mtaibbi released the 17th version of the Twitter Files, some 40,000 American Twitter users, including many US citizens, discovered a US government-funded group was tracking them for alleged “disinformation” and “online harassment.”

Dataset sent to Twitter’s Trust & Safety team by the Atlantic Council’s DFRLab. TheDFRLab alleged that those handles belonged to “Hindu nationalists” and “paid employees or possibly volunteers” of India’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

"[Lord] Macaulay traveled from Madras to Ooty to meet Governor-General Bentick--a distance of 400 miles--on the shoulders of Indian men, and then back: Twelve bearers--six at a time--carried his palanquin down to Madras, as he reclined and read Theodore Hook's Love and Pride" Image
"[Lord Thomas Babington] Macaulay was a brilliant mind, who had already written, at the age of eight, a convincing essay on the desirability of converting heathens to Christianity."
From #TheRulersGaze by Prof. @aravindasharma

~ F. Max Muller as quoted by @aravindasharma in #TheRulersGaze.
