This would stir things up (just a little):
Have to plug in a link to this (at Columbia) for history’s sake.
“We have edited this post, because the original tone of the post was inappropriate for the severity of its content.”
The comment thread turns into a dark irony envelopment exercise some time before its end. (Digressive sub-question: When was it exactly that irony become exclusively and bitingly right-wing?)
ADDED: “The Dark Enlightenment doesn’t even have good memes.”
(I haven’t listened to it. Tracey’s description is enough.)
Republicans should designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, based simply on the weight of the evidence. But if they’re feeling a little bit mean — and why not? — they should wait until the Democrats have put Keith Ellison in charge of their party to do it.
(It just keeps getting better.)
Is there anything 2016 can’t do?
They have to know what this looks like, but they can’t help themselves.
We are in over our heads in racism here.
So many fronts, so little time.
“The Amazing Atheist” … is a disease, and if left untreated, he and his fans may kill any hope that atheism can make the world a better place.

Following their apparently delusional belief in the “success” of Tuesday night’s violent protests, anti-Trump groups are plotting “Democracy Spring” threatening “drama in Washington” with the “largest civil disobedience action of the century.” The operation, backed by Soros-funded MoveOn.org among others, warns on its website that “We will demand that Congress listen to the People and take immediate action to save our democracy. And we won’t leave until they do – or until they send thousands of us to jail.”

I was slapped around a lot on Twitter recently by the usual Alt-Right mob for expressing the inflexible opinion that right-wing rioting — and political violence in general — is strategically retarded. So I have to assume now, out of attributed consistency, that my sparring partners at that juncture are considerably less amused than I am about the prospect of left-wing rioting. Rioting for democracy is, of course, better still. Eventually, violent social disorder and democracy begin to look like the same phenomenon, differentiated only by speed (or ‘spontaneity’). Then our grim work is done.
