I read it too. It's good. Anyone interested in understanding why this country is so fucked up would do themselves a favor by reading it.

In case anyone missed this story, some footage of a California math teacher having a bizarre, racially insensitive nervous breakdown in front of her class.

I like 0:15, and her stubbed toa :rofl: :picard:

It seems Nazis are being punched in their bank accounts, Richard Spencer in particular under great financial stress resorting to representing himself. There's civil litigation against the rectal warts responsible for the Charlottesville violence, several already have default judgements against them.
Consequences you fuckers.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/four- ... ar-AAPV58S

The case, Sines v. Kessler, takes aim at the organizers of Unite The Right, the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The two-day rally began with a torchlit march, during which white supremacists assaulted counter-demonstrators, and concluded with neo-Nazi James Fields Jr. driving his car into a crowd of protesters, murdering one and injuring dozens more. Survivors of the attacks were left with lasting injuries and emotional distress. Sines v. Kessler, which represents nine survivors, argues that event organizers planned for violence. And after four years of dramatic pre-trial developments, the plaintiffs are finally going to make their case.

In summer 2017, Unite The Right was billed as a coming-out moment for the then-ascendant alt-right movement. Comprised of internet-savvy fascists, the alt-right movement was riding high off Donald Trump’s 2016 election and hoped to march publicly with other, older white supremacist movements like the neo-Confederate League of the South or the National Socialist Movement.

Erica Chenoweth (Harvard) & Jeremy Pressman (U.Conn). Summary of their study here, which looked at
...data from May to June [2020], having already documented 7,305 events in thousands of towns and cities in all 50 states and D.C., involving millions of attendees

...and concluded that
Only 3.7% of the protests involved property damage or vandalism. Some portion of these involved neither police nor protesters, but people engaging in vandalism or looting alongside the protests.

In short, our data suggest that 96.3% of events involved no property damage or police injuries, and in 97.7% of events, no injuries were reported among participants, bystanders or police.

They define terms & participants in the in-between paragraphs.

Cool thanks.

Meanwhile, it appears that the QAnon wankstains have now gone full Rapture Retard ...

QAnon believers have reportedly gathered in Dallas, Texas in anticipation of a big announcement from John F. Kennedy Jr.—but they may be waiting some time, as Kennedy died in a plane crash 22 years ago. The gathering was spotted by independent journalist Steven Monacelli, the publisher of Protean Magazine and contributor to The Daily Beast. He posted Monday night that a big crowd of “what appears to be QAnon believers” gathered in downtown Dallas ahead of an expected announcement by Kennedy at Dealey Plaza later this week. Monacelli even spotted people wearing campaign t-shirts saying: “Trump/JFK JR 2024.” Some QAnoners believe Kennedy faked his own death and is now Q, the anonymous leader of their conspiracy movement. However, Kennedy died after crashing into the Atlantic Ocean on July 16, 1999.


Apart from the fact that there is no way JFK Jr would have embraced the politics of the wingnut Trumpoids, the little matter of his being, er, dead might have some impact upon the likelihood of this gathering hearing anything from him, unless of course they've all brought Ouija boards with them ... (yes, that was humour in case anyone needs to ask :D )

What you're seeing here, is the outcome of 30 years of lead in petrol.
