How nice for Dean Phillips to schedule his "provocative conversation" on MLK Day with Bill Ackman (plagiarism for my wife but not for thee) and Elon Musk (low-IQ Black pilots make planes crash).

Guess he was really pressed that no one showed up at his little campaign event.

Activists who disrupted the event at Mother Emanuel have decided to dox parishioners until their "demands are met." This is being co-signed by Marcus McDonald and Pastor Darien Jones.

And please DO NOT try to explain this away. They're putting targets on people's backs.

A real NYT headline: "Trump family trial style".

Describing Ivanka Trump: "... her blond hair falling in soft waves around her face, the picture of gentle, pulled-together professionalism and good will."

Lie cheat, steal, call for sedition & mess up people's lives - but call it fashion.

For those who didn't vote in 2016 - or need to be persuaded to vote in 2024 - is this real enough for you?

Audre Lorde said, "your silence will not save you." They're coming for our civil rights. And we can't let that happen.

Catch your breath. Get your spirit together, then let's get to work.
