So, I met some local antifa. Not what I expected at all.

not really sure about all of this, but it makes some interesting points

Quote
When American technocrats saw Trump supporters in 2016 wearing T-shirts that said "Fuck Your Feelings," they couldn't help but feel a pang of sympathy. After all, they're trained to privilege empirical evidence over emotion. But what the technocrats didn't understand was that the operative word on the T-shirts wasn't "feelings," but "your."

Quote
Williamson could be hired by The Atlantic precisely because he is not a movement conservative: He's one of America's few remaining right-wing writers who appears to accept Enlightenment methods as legitimate. For instance, he is willing, kind of, to acknowledge that global warming and evolution are real. When he attacked Barack Obama, he did so by making claims that were within shouting distance of reality (and then wildly hyping them) rather than proclaiming Obama was a secret Sharia Muslim.

The Atlantic's editor, Jeffrey Goldberg, explained that Williamson was conservative, but hadn't actually meant his words about abortion. So he was great for The Atlantic, which, Goldberg said, he wants to be a "big tent for ideas and argument."

This, of course, was a transparent sham; when editors talk like this, 98 percent of the time, it's about expanding the tent to the right but not the left. You'll wait a long time before Goldberg hires someone who rationally looks at the empirical evidence and calls Bibi Netanyahu a war criminal. But people like Goldberg imagine themselves to be committed to Enlightenment ideals of open debate and get off on mouthing the rhetoric.

Quote
In particular, the right will never give up because they understand the most shocking and significant part of this whole dumb story: It actually matters who writes for The Atlantic.

As stated 1,500 words ago, few regular humans will care about which particular ink-stained wretches are hired to opine by the elite U.S. media -- let's say The Atlantic, the New Yorker, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal. But they should.

That's because the people who truly own and operate the United States -- from right-wing billionaires all the way over to centrist billionaires -- don't have time to consider politics in any depth. They're too busy bribing state officials to hire their hedge fund or straightening out supply chain issues in Kuala Lumpur. Instead, they outsource their thinking, just like they outsource their janitorial services.

Human beings all do this. We just can't, even with the best of intentions, examine more than one or two issues in any depth. Instead, we look to our peer group for signals about what makes sense -- and the superrich consider elite publications their peers.

For instance, the invasion of Iraq could never have happened without the noisy enthusiasm of elite publications. Without them, too many powerful people would have asked the Bush administration why we needed to engage in such an obviously catastrophic endeavor. But with Thomas Friedman and Fred Hiatt explaining that the war made perfect sense, they went along happily. Then hundreds of thousands of people died.

A handful of people around the United States, including in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Washington, DC, and Tennessee, discovered the white, laminated cards printed with the slogan "IT'S OKAY TO BE WHITE" after opening boxes of diapers they'd ordered from Target.

On the back, the cards listed a series of white supremacist websites, including bloodandsoil.org, Fash the Nation, and the Daily Stormer.

And also, that is why it is easy to paint the mainstream left as the radical left.

don't worry though guys, this dude with tons of white supremacist literature who was building powerful explosives may not be a white supremacist!!

Beaver Dam police said the white supremacist literature didn't necessarily mean Morrow was a white supremacist.

"It does cause me some concern but I want to make very clear just because Mr. Morrow was in the possession of this material, does not categorize in any particular light," Lt. Terrence Gebhardt told CBS 58. "He could have been an individual that was doing research."

lmao the chance that Lt. Terrence Gebhardt has reams of white supremacist literature in his house is 100%

American Greatness seems to be a bunch of mindless trumpism.  they say they reject "globalism", which is the Trumpists' nonsensical lumping together of everything that isn't nationalism.

"I solemnly swear to always have hatred in my heart for n*ggers, sp*cs and most importantly the fuckin' k*kes." That was the "oath" members of Syracuse University engineering fraternity, Theta Tau, seemed encouraged to recite in an online video obtained by the college's student newspaper Wednesday, igniting widespread protests across campus, Syracuse.com reports.
