Fox News claims HR1 is unconstitutional

NYU’s Democracy Program director explains the importance of passing H.R. 1 in the face of a relentless assault on voting rights by Republican state legislatures. On the eve of the passage of the For the People Act, Wendy Weiser, the director of the Democracy Program at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU’s law school, told The New York Times, “Voting rights in America are under significant attack, more than they have been in decades — an attack through racially targeted efforts to restrict access to voting.” She also explained:

Systemic ‘bogan’ racism is on the decline in Australia

Global White supremacist attitudes are on the decline, including those of Australia’s bogan racists, writes Bilal Cleland. IN THE USA, we see White supremacists arming themselves, applauding the police killings of blacks, invading state and national legislatures and threatening prominent White politicians who resist them. Here in relatively COVID-19-free Australia, we suffer more from moronic bogan supremacists than armed insurgents. That there are terrorists amongst us is certain, as we saw from the Christchurch massacre, perpetrated by an Australian export. That we have wannabe fascist militias was indicated by the recent neo-Nazi weekend camp in the Grampians, although we are told that ‘they broke no laws’.

Being Indifferent to Difference – » The Australian Independent Media Network

We need to be careful to not assume that these high-profile cases are exceptions. They are the tip of the iceberg. I hear racist, homophobic and other slurs around difference at my local golf club and in other places where people mix, on a regular basis. And so do you. We damn the different, no matter what the form. We don’t value diversity, only diversity that makes others more the same as us, in other words, assimilation. We want migrants to be Australians, as long as they cook their authentic national dishes. Sadly, we are not as civilised as we would like to think ourselves to be. I think we are getting better at calling out prejudice when we see it but we still need much more leadership from politicians and institutions such as those that support the events I’ve described above. The quip of the week goes to Deborah Devine who talked about her son Dan Levy, the star of Schitt’s Creek, who is gay. She had a message to Dan’s bullies at a school camp when he was a boy: “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” Dan was hosting the prestigious program, a measure of his enormous success.

Tucker Carlson’s descent into white supremacy: A timeline | Media Matters for America

AOC is right White Supremecy is a virus that exists in the US not everyone has caught it. White Supremacists have and we should stop asking if Trum is one. He has fully contracted the disease as has Tucker Carlson and Fox News, (ODT)

if they held “witnessing whiteness workshop” in their hometowns, Carlson called on his guest “to be honest and make a negative generalization about any other racial or ethnic group” besides white people.

June 18, 2018: Carlson accused people speaking up against the government detaining children in cages at the border of just wanting to “change your country forever.” Carlson also dismissed criticisms against Trump’s family separation policy, arguing that the costs of immigration are “entirely on you” and if you complain about it “they will call you ‘Hitler.’”
