We are reaching a new level of low when words like “revenge” are used when describing the justice system, our political system, presidential candidates, or the citizens of the U.S.

There’s no mystery about what Trump and his supporters want or will do. All we have to do is look at what they have already done to see that Trump and his base have already given up on democracy and any kind of accountability.

Republicans call for "revenge" in response to Trump's conviction:

Great, less pollution is a good thing.

What kind of people think: “that's awful, we should be able to pollute more, not less?” Don’t want to know.

Don’t forget that Trump and Republicans will undo every bit of this.

Great. Appoint a couple of people who blindly support a guy who stole government secrets (which he confessed to and shipped the evidence that he had done so directly to the government he stole them from) and left them lying around a public country club where literally anyone could see them to the Intelligence committee.

I hope people are paying attention to this.

"The carried a banner that said “It is right to rebel, go to hell,” with an inverted red triangle on it, which has come to signify support for on social media because the terror group uses the symbol in videos of its attacks. The student demonstrators repeatedly formed inverted triangles with their hands, flashing the symbol at the counter-protesters. Another protester brandished a banner that had a inside a Star of David while shouting: “ of Satan.”

The pro- , anti- demonstrators chanted “From to , globalize the ,” and “Hillel, Hillel, what do you say? How many kids did you kill today?”

“Another protester wore a shirt bearing the image of Leila Khaled, a Palestinian terrorist who gained notoriety for hijacking airplanes in 1969 and 1970. Two protesters wore green headbands used by Hamas’s armed wing, and a leader of the group wore a headband used by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, another US-designated terror group.”

These people are totally unhinged. Yes, I’m criticizing how people protest if they’re doing it this way. Deal with it, Fediverse.

@MariaHill @dukepaaron I’m going to ask the same question I did yesterday- where are they getting it? Is there an Amazon terrorism support store? Probably. I’m not looking.

It’s all going to be in a landfill next year or floating off the coast of Africa.

Bernie Sanders’ taste in people has been questionable, at best.

This is not just “criticism of Israel.” Neither has any of the other hateful things she’s been saying for months. It could only have been better if they’d fired her faster.

Hillel and Hubbard aren’t “Zionist organizations” and even if they were, that’s not a good reason to try and expunge them from campuses, so I don’t think “rethinking” your language is going to help.

It’s also pretty ironic for the “college is where you air out all your ideas regardless” crowd to try and eliminate one group of people. Unless they’re just antisemites.

@MariaHill
Calling for the elimination of organizations that are home to thousands of Jewish students across Pittsburgh area universities, as well as any other school, is unacceptable and is clearly anti-Jewish. The silence by some local politicians and seeing them make excuses as to its intentions is even more troubling.

This is why a free press is vital, so at least one can hold another outlet accountable.

Needless to add that there are major problems at the Washington Post and I’ve been talking about them for awhile.

They are going to need quite a rehabilitation to regain trust, if it’s possible.

I really prefer not to use my time talking at all about this guy but at the same time, it’s very dangerous to ignore this.

It is also disgusting that no one in his party has the decency to call him out. They are all complicit.

Why I won’t and don’t support anti-safely, pro-cruelty Republicans and Libertarians being in my government who want to “let the market take care of it”, day 3 in a row.

The Farm Bill is must-pass legislation, so lawmakers often tack on measures like this: devastating legislation that could wipe out years of progress made to help protect animals.

It is unprogressive. Punishing people of entire countries because of wrong actions of their government is wrong. I thought this was something we knew.

Imagine cutting off U.S. residents who happen to live in a red state. Morally wrong and it’s not going save a life.

Thanks, Jonny Greenwood, for standing up to irrational hate and continuing with the project. The music is gorgeous.

Libertarian bullshit dressed up as some sort of progressivism (it’s not) is still libertarian bullshit.

Anyone saying the best form of government is none is not to be taken seriously. At all.
