    The DSA has been spiraling for a while. Most of the founders have left the group over some of the new issues being put in their platform. (Support of BDS was the breaking point for most of the people who left, but yeah, that probably is real.)

    Joe Biden's campaign says he misspoke when he said 'poor kids' are just as bright as 'white kids'

    Biden's verbal slip up comes as he is campaigning in Iowa during the state fair weekend, where a recent poll shows he still maintains a lead over the rest of the field. Biden has a reputation for making misstatements on the trail and has even called himself "a gaffe machine."

    "I am a gaffe machine, but my God what a wonderful thing compared to a guy who can't tell the truth," Biden said in December, in reference to President Donald Trump.

    Do you think posting accurate video of political opponents doing something stupid if a fascist tactic?

    I'm ok with him talking himself out of the nomination.

    The people in the video don't come off well but at the end of the day that sort of thing is harmless. It's only some kind of damning evidence if you buy into that whole conspiracy of PC millennials trying to destroy America with gender pronouns pushed by right wing circles these days. And it is curious that conservatives rely almost exclusively on videos, many of them heavily doctored, to get their message across these days, because their audience isn't receptive to anything that requires effort on their part.

    And especially on the left, these small parties do love to spend all of their time going after each other over relatively minor points of contention rather than focusing on the right. Think of the People's Front of Judaea skit.

    Videos have the benefit of showing what someone is saying and doing, so it can be helpful as a way to convey information, especially when someone is doing something dumb. Obviously videos can be altered, and there are times when videos present an incomplete picture.

    Conservatives do have plenty of other sources of news than videos. Talk radio is immensely popular, and there are quite a few right-wing podcasts, as well as plethora of right-wing magazines and blogs.

    Looking at how many Facebook friends show Young Turks or Now This videos, it also does not appear that Republicans are uniquely likely to share videos.

    That's not a goddamn answer.

    Well yeah. Walmart is as determined to spread that fallacy as was that pretend black guy who posted here a few days ago.

    REVEALED: DOJ blocked report showing white supremacists responsible for all race-based domestic terrorism incidents in 2018

    The Trump administration has known since at least April that alleged white supremacists were responsible for every single act of race-based domestic terrorism in the U.S. in 2018, yet not only took no action to combat the growing right wing violent extremism, but actually substantially reduced or even eliminated funding and programs that combat white supremacist extremism, violence, and terrorism – and then blocked the data from reaching the hands of Congress.

    “Domestic Terrorism in 2018,” a document (embedded below) prepared by the State of New Jersey’s Office of Homeland Security Preparedness, “shows 25 of the 46 individuals allegedly involved in 32 different domestic terrorism incidents were identified as white supremacists,” Yahoo News’ Jana Winter and Hunter Walker report.
