More than 60% of the Palestinian population lives in territory governed by Fatah, which has been at war with #Hamas for 17 years, but that’s way too complex for bigots to understand. #israel

Saw a bumper sticker that read, “Vote Trump for Law and Order” and sweet Jebus these people live in a bubble.

This kind of abhorrent apologia does exist on the left but thankfully, it's marginal. But if you're watching the story unfold on a site that has no safety team, incentivizes the most toxic takes and allows the worst trolls to amplify their crap for $8/mo, then you're getting a skewed perspective.

Half the posts on Xitter are blatant #disinformation and the other half are people bemoaning the flood of blatant disinformation.

Not sure why the authors of the latter stick around but then again I also don’t know why people use fentanyl. #twitter

I worked the Italian-American festival yesterday and had to interact with several Trump supporters, which I normally try to avoid. Of course they were very nice to me, a volunteer for the local animal shelter, but--and you may want to sit down for this shocker--they were *really* not smart.

A woman at the store was saying that she might get shot if she referred to it as Columbus Day instead of Indigenous People's Day. Right-wingers' persecution complex is both ridiculous and all-consuming

Anyway, here's the annual link to an old column comparing Christopher Columbus with Donald Trump:

In response to Joshua Holland.
Democrats have to compete against MASSIVE media support for and dissemination of the opposition message. The media ‘s refusal to properly adjust to the extraordinary circumstances that we are in, and to continue both siding is far more problematic than any dem messaging shortcomings.

Dems should be pushing back on the GOP’s attacks on Biden by pointing out that the worst security failure in Israel’s history happened on the watch of MAGA’s allies and this, like the chaos in the House, shows what happens when RW extremists try to govern. But they suck at messaging so they debunk.

This NBC piece puts the GOP's shameless lie that Biden's Iran deal financed today's attacks in the 2nd graph ("without evidence") and the reality that every penny is sitting in a Qatari bank under Treasury oversight in the 8th.

Headline from NBC signals that there's a legit matter of controversy.

Russian propagandists are celebrating the killing of Israeli civilians because Israel's a US ally, about 15% of its population are Russian speakers who, in their view, abandoned the country after the fall of the USSR and simple anti semitism. Maybe other reasons too.

Ugly stuff.

It's a small thing given the scale of violence in #Israel and #Gaza but I'd just note that this is the kind of thing that #Twitter used to be incredibly valuable for tracking and when I took a peek over there today it was just a cesspool of conspiracy garbage and religious bigotry.

Yair Lapid says Bibi "knows that with the extreme and dysfunctional composition of the current cabinet, it is impossible to wage war," and offers to form an emergency coalition gov in order to have "a professional, experienced and responsible political rank."

Very understandable that people say they "stand with Israel" but with an embattled Bibi getting a casus belli they're in fact standing for a disproportionate response on a scale of the US invasion of Iraq following 911 that will further destabilize the ME and could potentially spiral out of control.

Kudos to MSNBC for noting that it’s early October and the UN said that 2023 is already the deadliest year for Palestinians instead of acting like these horrors are happening in a vacuum.

Prosecutors asked for 19 years. Deviating well below the sentencing guidelines has become the norm for violent #jan6 losers, who face better conditions than the general population in the DC jail and whine incessantly about their imagined oppression.

I hope there’s a Dem ratfucking group that’ll properly pump up RFKJr’s campaign.

“Trump did a lot of good things trying to make America great but in the end he bowed to the globalists and sponsored Pfizer and Moderna to develop a satanic vaccine that’s killed millions—and he brags about it!”

Twenty percent of GOP primary voters backed this obviously mentally ill woman, who thinks "the CIA used cloaks of invisibility to infiltrate her home and steal the secret algorithm that allows officials to control the outcome of elections," for KS Senate.

I get keeping a #Twitter acct for professional reasons. If you built an audience and need to promote your work, you should log in, post and then log out.

Your quips, commentary, pet picks and status as an active user contribute to the most important fascist project there is. It's deeply unethical.

I certainly understand that the government can't constrain this stochastic terrorist's speech. But while I'm not a legal expert, I have to think that there must be some grounds for a civil suit against this monster. There have been so many victims that it could be a class action at this point.

It’s unrealistic to think moderates would cross the aisle to elect Jeffries Speaker but Dems could approach a sane Republican—someone like David Joyce, who chairs the Republican Governance Group—and give him the votes to end the chaos and govern. https://www.washingtonpost...

So far, Republicans are choosing between a belligerent compulsive liar who covered up sexual abuse of minors and a guy who self-identifies as “David Duke without the baggage” for Speaker. Quite a party. #GOPinDisarray #gop

Mike Pence called McCarthy's ouster "performance art" and predicted that at the end of the day, he'll be re-elected Speaker, which would be the funniest outcome at least. #gopindisarray
