Here is the actual story. ImageImage Those quotes are from the WaPo coverage. Naturally, the international media is suggesting that this was an unprovoked attack by Israeli police on a peaceful funeral procession. As always, that's not the real story.

So. Much. Fact-Checkinging™!… Politifact is a Left-wing propaganda outlet. This article is just absurd at every level.

Major media institutions for years played an active role -- hand in glove with state and local governments -- in cudgeling corporations to reflect Left-wing viewpoints publicly. They still do. Now they cry about Disney and Florida. No. Same rules for everyone. You want the status quo ante? Disengage. Mutually assured destruction is the only path back to normalcy. The incentive structures are changing, and corporations should feel free to go back to serving stockholder interests rather than woke institutional ones.

Anyone who says the Left has not radicalized over the course of the last twenty years is insane. In 2008, Barack Obama defended traditional marriage. The 2008 DNC platform said, "taking police off of the street is neither tough nor smart; we reject this disastrous approach." Twelve years ago, not a major Democrat in America would have contended that a boy can be a girl. Now the White House announces that states must be forced to allow puberty blockers and body mutilation for minors.

Incredible to see those who have spent sixty years using government and its media lapdogs to cudgel businesses into reflecting Left-wing values now weeping over DeSantis and Disney. You made this bed. You lie in it. In a vacuum, I agree that government must not target corporate speech. We are not in a vacuum and have not been for decades. From "anti-discrimination laws" targeting bakers to threats directed at social media, from Chick-Fil-A to the IRS scandal, we are not in a vacuum.

The Taylor Lorenz article is so wildly dishonest. She mischaracterizes nearly everything deliberately. A few examples will suffice. She says that LibsOfTikTok posted "video of a woman teaching sex education to children in Kentucky." She does not quote the video. Probably because that video featured a woman talking about "sexy summer camp" for children and toddlers masturbating.

I regret to inform you that "The Batman" is bad. I will not spoil it here, obviously. But there will be a full video review. Prepare for the hot takes.

So just to get this argument straight, the West somehow provoked Russia by not rejecting Ukrainian attempts to join with it of their own accord? The only way the West provoked Russia was by demonstrating over and over again that it would not respond to Russian territorial expansionism.

The West is consistently under the grave misimpression that other countries think like we do. Thus, because we have become materialists above all else, if we levy sanctions and threaten lifestyle harm, other countries will cave. This is parochial to the point of absurdity. Putin will happily trade some short-term economic sacrifice for rebuilding an empire. China will gladly undergo some trade sanctions to take Taiwan. Iran will cheerfully be excised from global trade to destroy Israel.

Putin's bet is that the West will cave after a short period of shouting and sanctions. He is making that bet because that's precisely what the West did after he invaded Georgia and Crimea. He's also making that bet because one-third of the EU's natural gas supply comes from Russia.

Newsom wants the state to treat parents of kids who talk about their sexual orientation with teachers in schools as though they are child abusers. Schools routinely keep parents apprised of child health and wellness situations by law, and they should. This Leftist take, which has become the new standard immediately, is that parents are the enemy of their own children, and ought to be treated as potential child abusers without evidence.

They've been pissed at Joe Rogan since he had on anyone to the right of Hillary Clinton. They got more pissed when he noted that Joe Biden isn't all there. They got even MORE pissed when he didn't just parrot the CDC. This has never been about anything but silencing him. BTW, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek is a coward. His pathetic, mewling letter begging forgiveness and grace from the 21-year-old woke employees who spend their days pretending to be emotionally devastated by Joe Rogan's podcast deserves nothing but scorn.

Zucker was nailing Gollust who used to work for Andrew Cuomo. Zucker was paying Chris who was working for Andrew. CNN spent all of 2020 painting Andrew as the greatest governor in the country while he shoveled covid+ elderly into nursing homes, then covered it up. BUT WHY DO THE PEOPLE TRUST ROGAN MORE THAN CNN?!?!?!?!!!?!

Whoopi Goldberg explaining that the Holocaust wasn't about race because these were "two groups of white people" isn't just insipid, it's insidious. It's downplaying the minority status of Jews in order to uphold bullshit intersectional arguments that justify anti-Semitism today. The intersectional argument is that Jews are white people, and that Jews are disproportionately successful thanks to "white supremacy." Because racism is "animus plus power," and Jews are powerful because they are white, anti-Semitism from non-white supremacists isn't bigotry.

China is a second-rate economy masquerading as a powerhouse. Their power lies in concerted use of their market to cudgel corporations into place. It is an act of utter irresponsibility for Western governments not to untether from the poisonous IV that is the Chinese economy. This can only be done at the governmental level. Corporations that refuse to play in the Chinese sandbox are immediately undercut by corporations that kowtow to the CCP. Concerted action is necessary. We didn't strengthen economic ties to the USSR. We shouldn't with China.

"It is time for us to do what we have been doing and that time is every day." -- Kamala Harris

Yes, that is a direct quote. She is Michael Scott, only not likable or sympathetic.

Today is the first anniversary of January 6, a riot predicated on a falsehood pushed by President Trump -- a riot which did not prevent the certification of the 2020 election by Vice President Mike Pence and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. It was not a "coup" or an "insurrection," nor was it charged criminally as such. It was not a turning point for the republic or a referendum on American political violence.

"1883" is better than "Yellowstone" and it is not particularly close. The plot to "Yellowstone" has collapsed. Every single script hole is filled by Beth just being randomly snarky to a rando. Jamie wanders in and out of the plot like a drunken hobo. John started off as an anti-hero, then just turned into a hero. Kacey is an adjunct to the show.

So once it became clear that covid was not in fact a pagan god visiting vengeance on the unwashed Trump voters alone, the media and Democrats are now willing to admit the following: 1. Cloth masks are ineffective against omicron (Leanna Wen, CNN);
2. The vaccinated can spread and get covid;
3. The death rate is comparable to the flu (Chris Hayes);
4. Many people are entering hospitals with covid, not from covid (Fauci);
