Since we’re talking about OAN lately, I feel the need to tweet a momentary moment warning about Chanel Rion.
I became aware of her about two years ago.
I saw her described in an article today as a “former illustrator.”
That’s like calling Leni Riefenstahl a former filmmaker.
Chanel Rion used to draw what could kindly be described as hate art.
Her “illustrations” were debasing, violent and racist cartoons against prominent figures on the left. A fav target was Rachel Maddow (who she dubbed “Rabid Madcow”) with some of the most foul graphics I’ve seen
So when you see this slight woman show up in her Hermès scarves and her fluffed hair to ask obviously biased questions, just know you’re dealing with an adored alt-right figure who is as rage-filled and despicable as Bannon, with no reporting experience, but a lot with propaganda
if you are going to retweet explicit images of violence against Black people and/or protestors in my mentions, or explicit words of violence against Black people, YOU NEED TO INCLUDE A TRIGGER WARNING OR YOU ARE DOING HARM.
Better yet, DON'T DO IT.
Gonna add one other thing: some of you White folks who think you're on the right side have NO SENSITIVITY WHATSOEVER.
Sometimes when I'm working my kids are around.
Do not put those images on my feed. Don't put them on anyone's feed. Don't do it. You have no idea the impact.
Uh, I’m not sure how this flew under the radar, but this is a blazing letter from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs reminding them that they took an oath to the Constitution and that they will uphold that oath.
