ABC Tried to Bury This James Baldwin Interview. Four Decades Later, It's Blisteringly Relevant.

James Baldwin was an amazing human being. I would say he's one of my heroes, but I feel I have no right to claim him as mine. To me he's out of reach, well beyond heroes that someone like me could claim. He has taught me about the ones to whom I feel he does belong, and how to recognize and fight for their dignity.

There’s not really an official widely accepted term outside of just “Qanon Believer.” They call themselves “Anons” but “Qultist” is the most common one I’ve seen among everyone else, though a lot of people just call them a random word with “Q” inserted. “Qcumber” for example.

Yes, qan qonfirm, Qultist and Qcumber are the most qommon I've seen.

That Living with Q video was sad af. The first couple stories made me tear up a little as I was trying to work. Yeah I've got questionable taste in background noise.

I think the title from Boing boing sums it up nicely

14 second clip shows why no-one can trust cops

Parents of a Parkland Shooting victim trick a former NRA president and current board member as well as John Lott, a rabidly pro-gun researcher with a penchant for falsifying data that doesn't show that more guns equals less crime, to give a graduation speech for a non-existent high school to 3,000+ empty chairs that represent the children who were killed with guns last year.

Something that will never fail to be depressing to me is how the former president brags about lying. Brags about lying to his supporters. And they love it because the only thing that matters is that he hates the same people he does and promises to hurt the people they hate.

Not even surprising in the least.
