Political Cruelty | The Takeaway: Deep Dive with Dorian Warren

quote [ To me, I think that's actually one reason why things feel so divided and partisan right now, is because the overall majority consensus around the acceptance of whiteness and white democracy has collapsed, and white nativists can't even trust other white people to support them. ]

Heard this on the radio, and while the whole piece is extremely insightful, I feel the quote above really gets to the root of the "own the libs" mentality.

There's also a transcript on this page for those of you who prefer to read.

Charles Koch funded eviction push while investing in real estate companies

quote [ Billionaire Charles Koch?s foundation has bankrolled three conservative legal groups leading the court battle to eliminate prohibitions against tenant evictions during the Covid-19 pandemic in America.

At the same time, Koch?s corporate empire has suddenly stepped up its real estate purchases during the pandemic ? including making large investments in real estate companies with a potential financial interest in eliminating eviction restrictions. ]

Gee, steele, why do you obsess so much about the Koch brother(s rot in hell, motherfucker) and their antics? I can't imagine, voice in my head, I can't imagine.

She risked everything to expose Facebook. Now she?s telling her story.

quote [ Her story reveals that it is really pure luck that we now know so much about how Facebook enables election interference globally. Zhang was not just the only person fighting this form of political manipulation; it wasn?t even her job. She had discovered the problem because of a unique confluence of skills and passion, and then taken it upon herself, driven by an extraordinary sense of moral responsibility. ]

Interesting recap on the inside source.

How US govt-funded media fueled a violent coup in Nicaragua

quote [ To support the media ecosystem it sought to establish in Nicaragua, USAID channeled money through an entity run by Nicaragua?s most powerful oligarchic family, the Chamorro Foundation.

Among the most prominent recipients of the millions USAID plowed through the Chamorro Foundation was the opposition media outlet 100% Noticias. ]

Hmm, why does all this sound familiar? Oh, right.

Apple Daily: Hong Kong pro-democracy paper announces closure

quote [ The tabloid's offices were raided last week over allegations that several reports had breached a controversial national security law.

Police detained the chief editor and five other executives, and company-linked assets were frozen. ]

This looks like the end of independent news in HK. Perhaps I've bought into western paternalism, or anti-China fervor, or I'm a sucker for yellow umbrellas, but it makes me sad.
