Quoted @NikkiHaley

In Milwaukee, homicides are up 37% so far this year. In Los Angeles, killings are up by double digit percentages, and Kansas City has had 99 killings since January. Murder rates are up in at least 36 cities this year. All examples of how dangerous it is to defund the police.

Replying to @soledadobrien: But.... nobody’s actually defunded anything yet. Sooo—you’re logic is failing, lady.

Quoted @CaitlinPacific

What the Times did to @bariweiss is unconscionable. It’s not civil, It’s not in the reader’s interest, and the well-documented culture of extreme harassment will, I hope, now come to light. This is the biggest media story in years.

In the past 48 hours, one signer to The Letter has admitted to wanting to kick someone out of his house for disagreeing with him, and another has quit her job complaining that her colleagues weren’t being punished for publicly criticizing her.

Local newspapers are being wiped out or cannibalized by parasitic venture capital. Journalists abroad are getting locked up, intimidated, disappeared in droves. But a person who was given a huge platform by the NYT now on verge of a new platform is "biggest media story in years."

Our meeting with Mark Zuckerberg reaffirmed that Facebook cares more about profit than it does about protecting it’s users from #hate & disinformation. That’s why we are continuing to push hard for advertisers to tell them it is time to #StopHateForProfit.

TONIGHT @lawrence_wright wrote a novel about a global pandemic that 1)gets dismissed as “just a flu” 2)is made worse by an incompetent POTUS & 3)leads to hate crimes against ppl from whence it came.
Tune in and maybe he will read your horoscope.

In her resignation letter, @bariweiss said she was proud of brining @Ayaan's voice to the NYT. Imagine being proud of amplifying someone who spouts this kind of religious bigotry:

.@MaxBlumenthal explains how Bari Weiss, signer of Harper's letter & newly resigned from NYT, tried to cancel Palestinian scholar Joseph Massad at Columbia University. Far from apologizing, Weiss continues to smear pro-Palestinian activism as anti-Semitic.

The fact that Bari Weiss had a platform like the @nytimes to write her mediocre nonsense to begin with says everything about access, privilege, etc.

'Trump is what happens when a political movement gets so drunk on its own ideological moonshine that it dissolves its own ability to think or act.'
Trump's incompetent virus response was decades in the making

Reading excerpts of Bari Weiss's self-important, self-pitying resignation, thinking of my friend @lsarsour, who has faced years of racist harassment which Weiss used her privileged position to amplify. Linda carries on with grace and strength. Others quit in the face of far less.

If you're blaming President Obama and Biden for not testing a disease that didn't even EXIST while they were in office, then it's time we demand to see the results of that cognitive exam you said you "aced."

Angela Davis is one of the pioneers of the abolition movement from whence all the calls to #DefundThePolice come. Her nuance re: voting for Biden (which all of us progressive-radicals dread doing at this point) is reasonable, sensible and damn worthy of your respect.
