This is what you will hear from all liberal corporate outlets for the next year: no, this time we mean it! This time Trump *really will be* fascist!
These are the people imprisoning non-violent Jan 6 protesters, prosecuting Trump to win an election, censoring the internet:
Look at this hive mind of corporate media outlets: they all think alike, say the same things, work for the same agenda, all have the same mindset and worldview, only hire those who see the world like them.
All from the last 3 days: like trained seals dancing to the same music:

Nothing Israel is doing should be a surprise. Netanyahu was very candid and explicit from the start about what Israel planned to do to Gaza.
Western liberals who cheered it are now getting a bit queasy for their legacies, but this is what they vowed to support until the end:
So many media and political liberals who declared support for Israel's war are, as usual, now offering sniveling, impotent, self-protective statements of "concern" while still funding and arming Israel.
I far prefer the Israel supporters who are honest about what they support.

Many of Israel's "Palestinian prisoners" are people never convicted in court. They're imprisoned as part of Israel's military tribunals with a near-100% conviction rate, or just administratively detained.
And: they live in the West Bank, which Israel *illegally occupies*:
I've seen some objecting to the release of some "prisoners"because they attacked *not civilians,* but Israeli soldiers or police.
Is it prohibited - morally or legally - for people to attack foreign *soldiers or police* who are part of an illegal occupying force on their land?

For months, many conservatives were demanding release of the manifesto of the Nashville shooter (we hired counsel to force this as well).
I don't believe they wanted to read it because they supported her grievances, but rather to understand what radicalized her to violence.
There are an endless number of things we consider bad, but also study to understand its causes: crime, terrorism, dictators, wars, extremism, diseases, serial killers.
That only Al Qaeda or 9/11 supporters want to read the Bin Laden letter is anti-intellectual idiocy.

Tonight on @SystemUpdate_, live at 7pm:
In an extreme act of Big Tech censorship, TikTok bans all discussion of the 2002 bin Laden letter.
Plus: our difficulty in booking pro-Israel guests. And: updates on our homeless-run animal shelter, @abrigo_hope:
We'll also cover X's newly announced policy, unveiled just now by Elon Musk, that several phrases frequently used by some pro-Palestinian activists and journalists regarding Israel will be strictly banned.
It comes as Musk was widely accused of endorsing an anti-Semitic tweet.

It's amazing how this attack on Israel caused many Americans with an intense affinity for it to instantly revert back to the most childish and repressive post-9/11 behaviors.
The Guardian removed the bin Laden letter because people were realizing the same things Ron Paul said:
I don't understand the point of taking a controversial public position, then denying you did it. Media outlets reported Ackman did this because they understood the clear meaning of his words exactly as I did. The steadfastly pro-Israel Larry Summers even condemned him for it.

Vivek was absolutely right to compare Nikki Haley to Dick Cheney. They are identical: not only fanatical warmongers but ones who profiteer off the wars they cheerlead.
Haley's candidacy is an attempt to ensure that neocon ideology prevails no matter which party wins next year:
Of all the deceitful and morally bankrupt claims I've heard Joe Biden make over the years, that he's sadly powerless to affect Israeli behavior -- when he just demanded $14 billion for Israel, and Israel has long received more US aid than any other country -- is appalling.
Over several decades, Israel has received more money by far from the US than any other country, and the US has given Israel more aid than any other country.
Biden has long been a fanatical Israel supporter, and is only now pretending to object because they're afraid of polls.

Nothing has provoked more mockery and scorn from the American Right than grievances from college students and journalists of feeling "unsafe" due to others' views.
And there's nothing that parts of the Right have done more in the last 3 weeks than express such grievances.
The Right when black NYT reporters said they feel unsafe due to an op-ed calling for the military to crush George Floyd protests:
"Journalism is not about creating safe spaces."
Bari Weiss' site today: A jewish Guardian staffer feels "unsafe" due to anti-Israel reporting.

Absolutely pathetic that frauds like this one spent years parading as free speech warriors -- mocking college students who urged protection from views they find threatening -- only to now exploit this war, that is not even an American war! (😲), to seize broad censorship powers:
One thing that has provoked intense mockery and scorn from the right are victim narratives:
Students weeping, claiming mental trauma from feeling unsafe by bigoted views; depicting college students as children who can't hear upsetting views rather than as adults who must....

I'd like to note again that the theory advanced here - that there's no such thing as an innocent Palestinian, or no difference between Palestinians and Hamas, because they elected Hamas (back in 2007) - was bin Laden's view for why all Americans are legitimate military targets:
Are Americans really ready to endorse the idea that every American, including civilians, is responsible for the aggression and violence of US leaders? That would make all Americans, and civilian infrastructure, legitimate targets for reprisals.
The EU hired an Omidyar-funded firm ("Reset") that claims to be "disinformation experts". It issued a study accusing Big Tech platforms - especially X - of insufficiently censoring "pro-Russia propaganda."
The EU has a new censorship law and intends to use it to punish X:
What the EU is doing is exactly what neoliberals did in the US and UK after 2016: looked at the 2 election losses they suffered (Brexit and Trump) and concluded they can't allow a free internet any more: too dangerous.
Eu sei que não vale a pena demonstrar que certos blogs do PT mentem, mas ontem um alegou que eu menti quando disse que a esquerda - depois de Temer indicá-lo para o STF -, chamou Moraes de "fascista e racista."
“Ninguém disse isso!," os petistas afirmaram.
Verdade? Vamos ver!
O que é isso? Nossa!
É o Twitter oficial do PT, em janeiro de 2017 – logo depois que Temer indicou Moraes – chamando Moraes de “fascista”, além de ser “mentiroso”.
Isso, por si só, prova que foram esses blogueiros petistas, e não eu, que mentiram.👇
