    Guys, as I've already said, bullshit like "CRITICAL (ahah) something" is simply a pretending mimicry by the Right of the "average intellectual libtard" attitude.
    "We got totally intelligent buzzwords too!!111 Come and learn!!!111 We got ACCURATE SCIENCE"

    Of couse it's bullshit to make feel far right voters "intelligent too". Intellectual "elegant" excuses=ideology by definition (of Marx).

    I'm not stupid, I'm in the know about CRITICAL RACE THEORY the Left is carefully hiding from your eyes thanks to the POLITICALLY CORRECTNESS!!!

Which makes it possible for teachers to then craft anti-racist classroom content that specifically just avoids anything that came out of CRT.
    They didn't do a lawsuit. They simply pressured the Tennessee Department of Education to drop the book (and three others, including two about Ruby Bridges) and the department declined based on a technicality. The CRT banning law seems to be working as intended so far.

    Hmm well, not sure what to do about it then. An actual testing of the law in court would force them to define WTH they even mean by Critical Race Theory, which isn't what their goal is.

    QAnon’s ‘Queen of Canada’ Calls for Followers to ‘Kill’ People Vaccinating Children
    ...
    In a post on Sunday to her over 70,000 followers on Telegram, Didulo issued an order to the soldiers of her “Kingdom of Canada’s Military.” She demanded the mass arrests of those they consider opposition, and wanted her soldiers to take control of newspapers and seize the border.

    “Shoot to kill anyone who tries to inject Children under the age of 19 years old with Coronavirus19 vaccines/ bioweapons or any other Vaccines,” she wrote. “This order is effective immediately.”

    Now if people start actually listening to Queen Romana things would get ugly real quick. Even Hitler was more subtle than she is. She's living in a fantasy world where she's already a ruthless dictator-queen who gives execution orders. Some of her followers believe she's already executing people, and the loudly cheer about how much hope she brings. Murder all the doctors. Such a voice of hope.

    Looks like this time there were actually some consequences, which is kind of surprisingly late into the game, given how unhinged she has been.

    https://globalnews.ca/news/8417379/q...nline-threats/

    Romana Didulo, a leading Canadian QAnon figure with an alleged history of encouraging her followers to shoot health-care workers, was taken into custody by the RCMP’s national security team in Victoria, B.C.

    Didulo, who often refers to herself as the “Queen of Canada,” said in a YouTube video that the RCMP’s integrated national-security enforcement team (INSET) served her with a search warrant and told her she was being detained under B.C.’s mental health act.

    A justice of the peace for the Victoria Court Registry confirmed that an RCMP search warrant was issued on Nov. 27 for an address linked to Didulo.

    [...]

    According to Didulo, officers arrived at her home on Nov. 27, just days after she allegedly told her followers to “shoot to kill” all health-care workers involved with administering COVID-19 vaccines.

    “They called out my name and said ‘open this door or we are going to break it in,’” she said in a YouTube video. “I was placed in handcuffs and escorted by multiple officers.”

    Didulo said in the video the officers who arrested her were “very caring and polite” and that she was taken to the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria for a psychiatric assessment.

    This is what happens when media and politics exert control by persuading the gullible to ignore reality in favour of their narrative.
    Eventually, that mindset breaks free of the reins and people start picking their own reality to inhabit.

    Judge tears apart Texas social media law for violating First Amendment

    Ruling blocks law that would force social networks to carry objectionable content.
    So they wanted to forced private media companies to carry fascist propaganda, and they called that a "free speech" law.

    Misinterpreting the meaning of free speech is attribute number 1 for modern fascism.

    It's a constitutional law 101 point; freedom of speech/expression includes the right to be silent or not to be forced to express content you don't want to.

    Edit: There's a real point buried in there. The constitutional obligation to permit speech applies to the gov't, not to companies or private people. But behemoths like Facebook are very gov't-like, but they're not accountable for their rules like gov'ts are.

    There were some old cases in the US where malls or company towns couldn't shut down speech on their property because they were sufficiently public-like spaces, or the common carrier cases (like phone companies) like this article mentions. And you could try to argue Facebook groups are public-like or a common carrier in that kind of sense. But anyway it didn't work with this law.

    I'm fine with FB rules that keep hate speech out (if that's what they really did; I'm not sure they do, though) ... but in the big scheme of things, it's setting a precedent that may cross a line at some point. I'm thinking, e.g., if someday we're all wearing AR glasses and the whole world has an online component, then having the company control content seems like it'd be more like the old mall and company town cases.

    BTW you people scare me:

    https://www.insideedition.com/tennes...ars-pizza-cops

    One man allegedly went too far when he was told his Little Caesars' pizza was not hot and ready, pulling an AK-47 on employees and demanding his food ASAP.

    "He points the gun up at me," former Little Caesars employee Kimberleigh Murrell said. "'Where is my pizza. I want my pizza now.'"

    Murrell told a local news station in Knoxville, Tennessee, that it was her first day on the job.

    In actual politics news however, Ron DeSantis looking to create his own personal army:

    https://edition.cnn.com/2021/12/02/p...tis/index.html

    DeSantis proposes a new civilian military force in Florida that he would control
    ...
    But in a nod to the growing tension between Republican states and the Biden administration over the National Guard, DeSantis also said this unit, called the Florida State Guard, would be "not encumbered by the federal government." He said this force would give him "the flexibility and the ability needed to respond to events in our state in the most effective way possible." DeSantis is proposing bringing it back with a volunteer force of 200 civilians, and he is seeking $3.5 million from the state legislature in startup costs to train and equip them.

    The move by DeSantis comes on the heels of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin's directive warning that National Guard members who refuse to get vaccinated against the coronavirus will have their pay withheld and barred from training.
    ...
    Democrats in Florida immediately expressed alarm at DeSantis' announcement. US Rep. Charlie Crist, who is running as a Democrat to challenge the governor in 2022, tweeted, "No Governor should have his own handpicked secret police."

    State Sen. Annette Taddeo, another gubernatorial candidate, wrote on Twitter that DeSantis was a "wannabe dictator trying to make his move for his own vigilante militia like we've seen in Cuba."
    Yes, "Civilians" ... in other words the untrained and unfit for military service.

    Double post, but I thought everyone could use a good solid laugh right about now:



    And here's what consistent reporting looks like:



    On the journalist's twitter, people noticed and are not letting up:
