Anna Merlan and Mack Lamoureux:
At least one group, the Proud Boys, has seized upon the void Trump’s departure has left in his followers’ lives. On one of their official channels on Telegram they tell Trump fans “here is hope. Not for Trump to become president, but there is hope for our future. Abandon the GOP. Embrace the ultranationalist 3rd position.”
This is exactly what we should be worried about right now. White supremacist groups tend to use moments like this to recruit people, which is why it’s important to make sure they don’t have access to places where recruitment can happen.
Deplatforming isn’t just about getting the loud, obnoxious Nazi out of the bar. You want to make sure he doesn’t come back with his friends and start putting up flyers.
If you’re watching Josh Hawley and wondering, “WTF?” It’s pretty simple: he’s trying to pick up the reins that Trump just dropped. If he doesn’t run in 2024, I’ll be shocked.
It has been exactly one year since my last haircut.
First time in more than 15 years that my hair is long enough to put in a pony tail. Used one of my kid’s scrunchies. I cannot tell you how good it feels to have my hair off my neck.
Merino wool is a rip off do not @ me
I spent some time today reconnecting Day One to my blog and to Twitter after reading how @patrickrhone auto-journals. It works so well.
Neat. Late afternoon coffee now causes me heartburn.
Being over 40 is GLORIOUS.
‘Bout to have a cup of fully leaded coffee at 4:30 pm what could possibly go wrong
Everybody wants to edit Trump out of Home Alone 2 but no one wants to edit him out of Bobby Brown’s video for On Our Own smdh
