About 20 years ago, a dead Democrat beat the Republican candidate to win a Senate seat in Missouri.

I thought that was only a West Wing story, didn't realise they based it on something real.

Trump will ban TikTok in the US.

If he does this alone he's earned another 4 years.

Yes, Tik Tok is the major problem facing the US and will balance out the rest of his presidency and make another four years worth it.

Cancel culture in action

The Trump regime is the biggest example of cancel culture around

I love when racists mendaciously accuse others of racism, it's almost like the whole online right-wing arguing strategy is an entirely self conscious grift, a sort of camp performance art, to try to deflect from the fact that right-wing politics is essentially sociopathy which has no answers to any of the major problems facing societies anywhere and which offers only misery to people*

2 weeks ago yesterday a mob of RIOTERS injured 49 Chicago police officers in an effort to pull down a statue of Christopher Columbus.

The weekend of the George Floyd riots 85 people were shot and 24 people were killed

Maybe if these thousands of RIOTERS actually put their energies and resources into helping these communities rather than throwing hissy fits about everything and anything they might be better off (but of course thatís not what itís about is it)

The US is and always has been a white supremacist ethno-state

As soon as one form of racial caste system is dismantled, another has taken its place

Slavery was replaced by Jim Crow which was replaced by mass incarceration and the deliberate use of the criminal justice system to create a permanent black undercaste

White supremacists like "whitey" hate any challenge to white supremacy and are prepared to dedicate a large amount of time to demonising anybody who challenges white supremacy in any way

This is because they desperately want to maintain white supremacy

White supremacism is a minority position and the Republican party is nakedly about minority rule

Divide, demonise and conquer tactics against wholly righteous and just moral and human causes are essential for this to happen

Big enough for India, a country of 1.4billion, to ban it, with Japan and Australia considering the same. But because Trump said it then it must be bad, right?
