The Day the Fascist Snowflakes Came to Cancel a Black Lady and a Brown Dude

It began, strangely enough, a noted leftist journalist, who once used to be widely admired. He singled out two minorities — Imani Gandy, a well-known Twitter personality, and, well me. Imani made a joke: “Petition to put white cis dudes on a barge and float them out to sea.” I…

The Big Lies are Getting Bigger, the Coup’s Getting More Brazen, and America’s Falling Apart

They’re at it again. American pundits — liberal ones. Pushing a dangerous, foolish, stupid myth.
