  1. In my country there is problem. And the problem is transport
  2. That probably refers to the sign that was displayed at the Auschwitz camp entrance. It has become a popular slogan amongst anti lockdown clowns
  3. It started with a New York Post article who published some of Hunter Biden’s emails on his allegedly dodgy dealings in the Ukraine. The article was quickly dismissed by left leaning publications as Russian disinformation propaganda without them having any evidence of this. I only really followed this through Taibi https://taibbi.substack.com/p/10-ways-to-call-something-russian As far as I’m aware Greenwald simply wanted to dig a bit deeper and find out whether there is any truth in the Post’s claims, but was discouraged by his editors on the basis, that pusuing the story would hurt the Biden campaign.
  4. This is happening everywhere. Glenn Greenwald has been forced to quit Intercept recently. https://taibbi.substack.com/p/glenn-greenwald-on-his-resignation Substack is becoming the platform for unbiased investigative journalism
  5. Now you won`t die of salmonella poisoning and I can go back lurking
  6. It is generally not a good idea to put eggs in the fridge. Eggs have a protective film on the outside and the law makes it illegal for egg producers in the UK to wash their eggs as this might remove this film. https://www.quora.com/In-the-UK-eggs-must-not-be-washed-and-are-kept-at-room-temperature-In-the-US-eggs-must-be-washed-and-refrigerated-Why-are-there-different-regulations
  7. "The core members have little in common politically. Bret and Eric Weinstein and Ms. Heying were Bernie Sanders supporters. Mr. Harris was an outspoken Hillary voter. Ben Shapiro is an anti-Trump conservative." Guardian: The ‘Intellectual Dark Web’ – the supposed thinking wing of the alt-right https://www.theguardian.com/politics/shortcuts/2018/may/09/the-ntellectual-dark-web-the-supposed-thinking-wing-of-the-alt-right
  8. As far as I know, in both cases it was actually the police, who got offended, which just makes things significantly worse.
  9. The "funniest" bit is that the PC, whose job is to read potentially offensive tweets got offended, which made this a hate crime
  10. Holy shit http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-43816921
  11. From Guardian coverage: John Crescitelli, a family doctor and 15 year-old Sarah Crescitelli’s father, was shaking as he was reunited with his daughter. He feared she had been killed. “These school shootings have to stop. This is crazy. My son’s football coach died. It’s horrible,” he said. “It’s like Columbine across the street from my house.” Asked by the Guardian if the tragedy should lead to stricter gun control for people with mental health issues, he replied: “I don’t want to get into a gun debate. I really don’t. What are you going to do? Confiscate everybody’s guns? We have millions and millions of weapons … I’m a gun owner. I don’t want the government taking my gun.”
  12. These are scientific researches conducted by people working for some of the best universities in the world. I accept if someone picks their argument to pieces and proves why they are wrong. Swiping them off the table and simply saying that this is "wrong science" and those who worked on them are alt-right misogynist is very weak however. It does not make progressives any better than flat-earthers, anti-vaccine people or creationists. Do you remember the title of the BBC program?
  13. I agree with a lot of that. Especially with the Star Wars, Ghostbusters nonsense. However, what if women in general just not that interested in certain professions? Does it have to be a zero-sum game, no matter what? Would it not bring down quality if we promoted people based on their gender and not their performance? Does it make me a misogynist asking these questions? There was a Norwegian documentary a few years ago, which came to the same conclusions as the Google memo.
  14. Honest question: Are there any podcasts, columns, Youtube channels, where progressives comment on news and events and argue the point?
