Bernie Sanders to online trolls: Stop ‘ugly personal attacks’


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders on Thursday urged an end to online “bullying or ugly personal attacks” after a powerful hospitality-industry union in Nevada accused his supporters of harassment.

The Culinary Workers Union said supporters of Sanders, a front-runner in the Democratic White House race, “viciously” attacked the organization via Twitter, text, voicemail and direct messaging after the union criticized the senator’s universal healthcare plan on Tuesday.

Inspection- STOP Helping Them

Courtesy libertas.liberty.me


by Ken Carman

 So it’s post election, November 2020. Trump has been reelected, despite not just 3 million more votes: despite 5 million more votes. (Pick another amount if that’s not your prediction.) Once again it comes down to the Electoral InspectionCollege and states under Republican control that have purged voters, shut down polls. Basically what has become ‘the usual.’
 Bernie was the candidate. Morning Joe is broadcasting how they knew this would happen because “so far left,” “socialist,” blah, blah, blah. It’s a given that some Bernie supporters will be screaming how Bernie didn’t get enough support from the party: they had been plotting against him from the beginning. We need to abandon the party and go third party, because obviously that has worked… so well… in the past??? Those who supported Joe Biden, or Pete, or… chime in on the, “This is what we get for supporting someone known as a Socialist” mantra.
 Republicans will gleefully join in on the bashing.

The Billion-Dollar Disinformation Campaign to Reelect the President


One day last fall, I sat down to create a new Facebook account. I picked a forgettable name, snapped a profile pic with my face obscured, and clicked “Like” on the official pages of Donald Trump and his reelection campaign. Facebook’s algorithm prodded me to follow Ann Coulter, Fox Business, and a variety of fan pages with names like “In Trump We Trust.” I complied. I also gave my cellphone number to the Trump campaign, and joined a handful of private Facebook groups for MAGA diehards, one of which required an application that seemed designed to screen out interlopers.

The Establishment Now Has Three Horses in the Race — and None Won New Hampshire

William Rivers Pitt

Keene, New Hampshire — On Tuesday night, Bernie Sanders took another step toward securing the Democratic nomination for president, the establishment wing of the party went three ways at once, and the state of New Hampshire put on an exhibition of electoral competence that made the doomstruck Iowa Caucus look like the sorry contest it was.

With most precincts having reported, Sanders pulled down 25.7 percent of the vote, followed by Pete Buttigieg’s strong showing of 24.4 percent. Amy Klobuchar roared into relevance again, landing in third place with 19.8 percent. Elizabeth Warren placed a disappointing fourth with 9.3 percent, but gave every indication she intends to remain in the race.

Andrew Yang and Michael Bennet had the writing on the wall rubbed in their faces, and dropped out of the race before New Hampshire’s winner was declared. Tulsi Gabbard, Tom Steyer and Deval Patrick brought up the rear with a combined total of 8.2 percent, and Patrick will reportedly be “talking with his family” before continuing with a campaign that most had forgotten existed.

The Long, Sexist History of ‘Shrill’ Women

 

 

William Cheng is an Assistant Professor of Music at Dartmouth.

In a 1926 survey about talk radio, a ratio of 100 to 1 respondents preferred male hosts to female hosts. Women, these respondents complained, sounded “shrill” and conveyed “too much” personality. Ninety years later, and the battle rages on, word for word. Many unapologetically vociferous male politicians and pundits have lately said that Hillary Clinton’s raised voice during speeches somehow registers as, yes, “shrill” and simply “too much.”
