nice

Roberts sided with the liberals in ruling the Louisiana anti-abortion rights law unconstitutional. First time he's ever voted against abortion rights restrictions. Cited the precedent of SCOTUS vote on very similar Texas law, which he voted was constitutional but lost the vote with Kennedy still on the court.

Re: Low Content (LC) Thread and Shelter for Deleted Posts

This video actually does a very good job of encapsulating many of my feelings of what is so wrong about the current moral panic. I am actually contemplating (another) critical theory thread to discuss my thoughts of what is really going on here.

In the meantime, enjoy.

Re: Low Content (LC) Thread and Shelter for Deleted Posts

Is there a thread here for actual "fake news"?

Dozens of right-wing media outlets were duped into posting op-eds pushing Middle East propaganda written by fake personas

Quote:
Badani is part of a network of at least 19 fake personas that has spent the past year placing more than 90 opinion pieces in 46 different publications. The articles heaped praise on the United Arab Emirates and advocated for a tougher approach to Qatar, Turkey, Iran and its proxy groups in Iraq and Lebanon.
They got into a couple of Trump's favorite outlets, the Washington Examiner and Newsmax, lol

Tucker Carlson: Tammy Duckworth hates America

Quote:
Before launching a broadside against Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), Fox News host Tucker Carlson acknowledged that it’s not easy to go after a Purple Heart recipient who lost both her legs while serving her country in Iraq.

“You’re not supposed to criticize Tammy Duckworth in any way because she once served in the military,” Carlson said Monday night.

That didn’t stop him from calling Duckworth, a contender to be presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, “a deeply silly and unimpressive person” and suggesting that she and other Democratic leaders “actually hate America.”
The embodiment of "hold my beer" lol. I think my favorite part is where he tries to convince his audience that he would never say "Democrats hate America" unless he was super duper sure:

Quote:
The Fox News host then suggested that he is loath to question anyone’s patriotism, saying, “It’s a very strong charge, and we try not ever to make it.”

“But in the face of all of this, the conclusion can’t be avoided. These people actually hate America,” Carlson said. “There’s no longer a question about that.”

Re: Low Content (LC) Thread and Shelter for Deleted Posts

Did a plumbing repair at a Midtown Kansas City Pizza Hut, and was prepared to pay for an order I'd made upon completing my work, when the all African American staff(but for 1 white boy lol) gave me the box meal thing for free.

I said, "any y'all need plumbing work done at your homes, look me up."

that earned a couple laughs, and that's how we do racial harmony

my cultural classes are paying immediate dividends!

find some good news, bitches

Here's some:

Picked up a black kid carrying 2 bags of dog food and took him to his home (1/4 mile).
He said "thanks", and I said "have a good day".

Cool stories. They read like a chapter out of Modern Chronicles of Not a Racist.

Fox is gearing up their election operation, now openly fabricating Biden quotes

Actual Quote:

Quote:
“Surplus military equipment for law enforcement -- they don’t need that,” Biden said. “The last thing you need is an up-armored Humvee coming into a neighborhood, it’s like the military invading. They don’t know anybody. They become the enemy. They’re supposed to be protecting these people.”

Re: Low Content (LC) Thread and Shelter for Deleted Posts

Are there any regular posters on this site who have changed their views over the years?

it seems like there are only 5 to 10 posters who argue the same thing every day for years

is there any point to this honestly?

I didn't have any prior interest in politics when I started reading this forum in 2016, so I could have easily been swayed by persuasive arguments from either side. So put me down as one such poster. In fact, my prior bias would probably have been towards the right, having been born in the USSR and witnessed socialism first hand.
