I always find it idiotic when people argue "Democrats are right wing by european standards"... lol there is no relative standard for center, it is an absolute... what they should say is "democrats are farther right compared to the average in europe". But to suggests they are right of center has little basis in reality. Their policies may not be as extreme left as politicians in europe, but they very clearly are left of neutral/center
are there any #ruby #rails freelancers in this timeline (Ideally with some knowledge on the #redmine code base) here, who would be interested in helping us at #osmocom to fix some redmine bugs and write some (small) extensions? #followerpower Details at https://osmocom.org/projects/osmocom-servers/issues?f%5B%5D=tags&fields%5B%5D=tags&op%5Btags%5D=%3D&operators%5Btags%5D=%3D&set_filter=1&v%5Btags%5D%5B%5D=redmine&values%5Btags%5D%5B%5D=redmine
Every single Republican who’s run in the last 40 years has talked about cutting the federal bureaucracy. But they never do it. So if a candidate’s plan doesn’t sound “extreme” (like they now accuse me of), then it’s not actually a plan to get the job done.

Free speech doesn’t just protect the ideas we love. It protects the ideas we hate. The idiotic college “pro-Palestine” student groups are dead wrong to excuse genocidal attacks against Jews and spout disgusting anti-semitism, but one of the things that makes us different from Islamic terrorists is we don’t silence dissent. It’s a shameful political ploy for @rondesantis to ban the existence of pro-Palestinian student groups at Florida universities. It’s unconstitutional. It’s utter hypocrisy for someone who railed against left-wing cancel culture. Conservatives should be allowed to criticize BLM or vaccine mandates, and crazy liberals should be able to criticize Israel or the West even if they’re dead wrong about it. I’m well aware this isn’t a politically popular position right now, but if the government can censor who can speak vs not, the rest of it really doesn’t matter: we’re no different than those we pretend to fight.

I had to blog this. This is insane. One of the Reporters Spearheading the @nytimes Coverage of the War In the Middle East Loves Hitler And the Nazi’s. (No Really)

I can't believe the videos and posts I've seen this past week:
- Members of LGTBQ community defending Palestine as if they wouldn't be imprisoned (or worse) for their beliefs there
- More and more footage of innocent civilians being tortured, killed, and paraded around
- Elected leaders unable to make a statement condemning said videos and those who committed these atrocities
- Universities explaining free speech and it's importance when it's being used by pro-terrorist groups for calls of violence on college campuses after years of suppressing the speech of those with conservative principles
When they show you who they are, believe them.
