Mehdi Hasan is quite a good interviewer, in a time when we need more of this kind of journalist. I still can't imagine why Prince would come on a platform like this, with such a relentless interviewer

Survival international has been stonewalling the new Messok Dja National Park due to concerns over the Baka people losing land. This is not going to be good for that process.

WHITE SUPREMACY UPDATE: Self-described White Nationalist wanted to kill Democrats, TV hosts

quote [ U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant Christopher Paul Hasson was arrested Feb. 15 on drug and gun charges, but prosecutors said in a detention memo this week that he intended "to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country." The Coast Guard flagged him because of internet searches of extremist web sites at work. A search of his Silver Spring, Maryland, residence yielded 15 firearms and 1,000 rounds of ammunition, the court documents say. He "compiled a list of prominent Democratic Congressional leaders, activists, political organizations, and MSNBC and CNN media personalities." ]

It's almost as if having a President who equivocates between Nazis and anti-Nazi protestors and who calls the media the enemy of the people might actually cause problems.

Virginia Senate approves guns-in-church bill

quote [ The Virginia Senate has approved legislation that would make it easier to bring a gun to a place of worship.

The GOP-controlled Senate narrowly voted to support the legislation Thursday. The bill would repeal a law that prohibits people from bringing guns and knives to a place of worship during a religious service without a ?good and sufficient? reason. ]

"You know what I?m waiting for? Guns in church. That?s gonna be a lot of fun and it?ll happen, you watch, some nut will go fucking ape-shit in a church and they?ll refer to him as a 'disgruntled worshiper.' " -- George Carlin, 1999

This filmmaker spent months interviewing neo-Nazis and jihadists. Here?s what she learned.

quote [ I tried to understand the core psychological draw of these movements. I found that a sense of belonging or purpose was a major factor. These people join these groups and suddenly they have a sense of meaning in life, a belief that they matter, that their voice matters. It?s as though they were once invisible and now they?re seen. ]

Deeyah Khan is a liberal Muslim woman, so both groups see her as the enemy. I found her story fascinating.
