@TonyStark The majority of Republicans don’t even accept that Joe Biden won 2 years ago.

@TonyStark
It proves our long held point that Trump isn't the whole problem. Republicans as a whole are.

It really goes to show you who Republicans are that almost all Congressional Republicans (once again) do not denounce white supremacist extremism in society as a whole let alone denounce the depraved extremism of their party’s own members. Omission is complicity in the violence and especially in the rhetoric that leads to it.

Congressional Republicans were largely silent after POLITICO revealed Donald Trump dined with white supremacist Nicholas Fuentes:

Unfortunately I have to stop actively working on #Metatext for a while due to health issues. I really wish I could implement Mastodon 4 features and squash every bug, but it's not possible for me to do so right now.

I know the app has become important to a lot people, so I'm open to a new maintainer who can carry on its values of privacy and accessibility taking it over if there's interest and a fit. Email info@metabolist.org if you (or your organization) are interested

Raphael Warnock’s Senate runoff race (Dec 6) is once again a critical one for the entire country and Georgians. Help him and them win again by supporting these Georgia-based organizations.

These are organizations doing critical election work right now across the state specifically to get out the vote for the runoff with a special emphasis on organizations that focus on and are led by women and people of color. Even a small donation will make a difference. These are the people on the ground who know how to get out the vote.

Some brands to avoid on Cyber Monday if you oppose Tucker Carlson and Fox News are WeatherTech, Sling TV, TempurPedic, STIHL, and SimpliSafe. They are all current sponsors of Fox News Channel, which frequently promotes right wing conspiracy theories. Good alternatives exist for most of these products. You can browse the full list of current Fox News sponsors on our website: whoadvertiseson.org/foxnews/

@BobVezeau That’s great! Thanks for doing it and letting people know. It does help and we need a lot of that.

@MSUHiker Yes. In Pennsylvania, we've been able to get some hard won reforms and we are going to get more. Michigan is a great success story!

I'm not sorry I missed whatever this conversation was, but everyone should listen to Maddow's podcast.

I know it must have taken her and her team a year to do the research needed for those eight episodes, but I need another season now! I would listen to anything they put together.

Sadly, I've already read all of her books and it's not like Spiro Agnew is a favorite villain from a novel.

@toddo "The media" is probably too facile an answer, but a lot of bad media coverage doesn't help.

I can only speculate that a lot of people have a fundamental lack of understanding of what the president does vs. what Congress does. I think there's a combination of a lot of Americans being not that interested and too exhausted to pay attention so what they get are soundbites. When you get 50 Republicans + Manchin and Sinema holding up Build Back Better, that's Biden "not doing enough." His approval rating dropped around the withdrawal from Afghanistan, which Americans broadly supported. TFG set the deadline, not Biden, but Biden is blamed for sticking to it because 13 of the 2000+ servicemembers died during the withdrawal.

I'm not suggesting Biden is a perfect president. There hasn't been one. But he's a very good one and the media does him a huge disservice of repeating these Republican narratives.

I have no concerns about Harris if Biden's health becomes a problem.

Here’s another in my ongoing series on the fact that Latino voters are not leaving the Democrats in droves despite what lots of frantic reporters tried to claim going into the midterms.
