  • Maqgie McNeill lets loose on “…every yahoo endowed with a one-dimensional sense of ethics who brays that the current sorry state of the American empire is the fault of whichever ‘wing’ of the US Fascist Party he does not identify with.”

  • At Harvard, you can’t even say “free speech” if you want to hold an event there. Because, you know, free speech is such a right-wing thing. 10 Comments
  • That most revolutionary act

    This was one of rockchucker’s many good submissions to the Practical Freedomista meme contest. I love it both because of its message (whose source is unknown, though people attribute it to Orwell) and because I admire Edward Snowden. Kit and I included Snowden as an example in Basics of Resistance, but only after strong urging from one of our reality checkers, followed by much verbal tippy-toeing around each other.

  • If I’d have had time to post yesterday (sorry), this would have been at the top of my list: YouTube shows its colors (again) by banning a range of gun-related videos. (Tip o’ hat to DB and others)
  • Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump or Cambridge Analytica, is gaslighting America.
  • Yeah, and Cambridge Analytica is a red herring. Money quote from the Obama camp: “Facebook was ‘very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side.’” 11 Comments
