When toxic people attack you online, you're put in a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. They make up horrible accusations and outrageous lies about you. If you don't respond, people start to believe it's true because you didn't say anything. If you do respond ... ...they then say you're part of the drama and then pull you deeper in with new toxic, absurd allegations.

On #MartinLutherKingDay don't be lulled into a false sense of complacency by quotes about love that every moderate trots out about #MLK today.

The anti-Muslim bigot @billmaher thinks the BDS movement is wrong and "virtue signaling." Shocker! He thinks the permanent occupation of Palestine is totally fine because what does he give a shit about those people? They're Muslims!! You know, the irredeemable ones. Bill, why don't you get more of your right-wing buddies and fellow bigots like @SamHarrisOrg to come on and talk about how Muslims are so different? Their religion is hopeless and it makes them who they are - and that's why we have to have them caged up like animals and occupied.
