Trump and the GOP's cancel mania still proliferate, because fear, hate, and money rule the roost until November. All that right-wing cruelty comes out, with GOP governors willing to sacrifice their populations for cult-leader Trump. Those not trying to preserve the Republican party are otherwise drunk on Trumpist nonsense.
Then there are those parents who punish their Zoomer children:
my parents are forcing me to delete social media so this is my last tweet. apparently, i donÃ¢ÂÂt have a platform! itÃ¢ÂÂs fake! love you all so much. keep fighting. Ã¢ÂÂ¤Ã¯Â¸ÂÃ¢ÂÂ CLAUDIA CONWAY (@claudiamconwayy) July 14, 2020
Claudia probably still has new handles on instagram, tiktok, etc, and a burner phone. Teen Vogue and MTV are probably calling after November. Her handle until then should be Guccifer 3.0.
Incredibly, I think attacking a presidential candidateÃ¢ÂÂs now-dead son for wearing a Washington Redskins as a child is very much on brand for Republicans. https://t.co/zcZ419MU8z

Conversations around the IRAÃ¢ÂÂs operations traditionally have focused on Facebook and Twitter, but like any hip millennial, the IRA was actually most obsessive about Instagram. https://t.co/OfIQ4AvXNF

ThereÃ¢ÂÂs no Guccifer 0.2. We know Guccifer 2.0 is a Russian asset because the NSA traced his VPN. And we know Roger Stone is a Russian asset because he was the intermediary between Wikileaks and the Trump campaign and was in communication with Russian intelligence officials. https://t.co/Eqv7Vx3Czh

The impact of Trump’s disastrous three months on down ballot candidates was best summed up in the first text message I got back.
“Could you use a poop emoji for my comments?”
The assessment was excreta across the board.
- “Every shred of evidence points to a likely ass kicking in the fall.”
- “Well it’s as bad as it gets right now.”
- “Right now most campaigns are thanking baby jesus every day the election isn’t held today.”
- “I’ve got Trump down in Texas. [Republican Senator Steve] Daines down in Montana.”
- “It’s certainly better than public polling, but it’s not good.”
- “I told very high ranking people in the Trump Administration that it hasn’t been like this since October of 06” – when President Bush’s numbers were tanking over fallout from the Iraq War, Katrina, and the Mark Foley scandal.
So shouldn’t they be pissed at this egomaniacal racist who is making their lives miserable, bringing down their candidates, and affecting their home lives and friendships — simply because he can’t for a single hour control his outbursts? Shouldn’t they be clamoring to tell him to fuck off and act like a damn adult and stop putting them in these terrible situations?
When asked, almost to a person, the answer was no. For some, he was simply a frustration, a circumstance to deal with, a challenge, a problem to solve. For one, there was a silver (or just green) lining in a Trump loss.
“If you actually think about this very selfishly … If [Trump] loses, I make more money,” one said. “He loses, we go back to a semi-normal Republican party that leans more populist that I think a lot of people would like. We get to run all these challenger races and probably take back the house in two years, maybe even gains on the state level because of the extremist Democrat administration. I make more money. So that’s a very selfish view and people have talked about that.”

“It is easy to get lost in the fog of Mr. Trump’s continuing and calculated war of denial and deception. But he has still, despite weeks of public debate over Russian bounties, not offered a clear and unambiguous condemnation of such Russian aggression.”
Angela Davis is absolutely right that Ã¢ÂÂneither party represents the future we need in this country. Both parties remain connected to corporate capitalism.Ã¢ÂÂ

Putin’s commitment to corruption will be evident if Moscow State University revokes her honorary doctorate.
Angela Davis is trying to teach you dummies that strategy is separate from ideology. You need a means to achieve your ideas and the 2 might not always align. Without strategy the most you can achieve is feeling special and superior on the internet Ã°ÂÂÂ
