Colin Powell politely tells MSNBC that they (& many others) botched the Russian Bounty story w/ "hysterical" coverage.

For like a century, corporate media decided who got “cancelled” & often the people didn’t even do anything wrong (Sinead O’Connor, Monica Lewinsky, etc). But now that social media is deciding who gets cancelled, it’s the most dire threat to free speech that ever happened. Lol ok
Why didn't @realDonaldTrump seem to care when his Saudi Arabian friends cancelled journalist #JamalKhashoggi?

Stoller digs up the ground of neoliberalism and looks at how we can reclaim democracy from the market.
All Americans should be cancelled for paying taxes to an international criminal guilty of mass murder. But #wokeism don't care.
I believe there is a lot of bad information, bad thinking and selfishness out there. Cancel culture is one manifestation of it, the refusal to wear masks is another. We need to be able to talk about all of it without falling into even conspiracy adjacent framing. #LiberalValues

When conservatives complain about @Twitter@twitter.com @YouTube@twitter.com etc, they're hypocritically telling others what to do with something they took the risk to build with their own time & money. At least lefties do that consistently. Grow the true freedom network instead. Join the #fediverse.
The antics of these public health "experts," along with elected officials and journalists, destroyed their credibility to issue neutral guidances or policies re: the virus. And you wonder why people aren't listening any more? You wonder why cases are spiking almost everywhere?

The hot dog is the perfect symbol for America - it’s enjoyable but the more you look into how it was made, the less you wanna know. #Happy4thofJuly
I'm a free speech absolutist. I'm opposed to the toppling of public statues. But people trying to convince you to care more about idols & symbols instead of policy & principles are crude propagandists. Let's argue about shit that matters. #LiberalValues
