It's ridiculous the sheer amount of people in the media (and elsewhere) tripping over themselves to apologize to/for the MAGA teen brigade in DC because...some Black Israelites yelled at them? The horsefeathers?

Never underestimate the desire of people to leap in front of the bullet of criticism directed at a bunch of horsefeathers who showed up to protest against women's reproductive rights decked out in MAGA gear, and then decided to pick on an old Native American protester because he got between them and the nutsoid Black Israelities. Gee, if only we could figure out why they would possibly done that...

Like, their "best" defense is, "we thought the non-white guy with the drum was with the crazy black guys yelling at us!"

I want to see the Venn diagram of people who say the maga boys were justified and people who say Trayvon Martin deserved his fate

The black guys that they got into it with because they assumed dark skin and references to the Middle East must mean they were Muslim, and of course they're gonna get into it with Muslims.

I don't know if this falls in journalism, or if there's a books thread this should go into (and i should start participating in):

During Boochani's years-long detention, he wrote his book in Farsi, in dispatch after dispatch sent via WhatsApp, which Tofighian then translated into English and organized. The result is a hybrid text that eschews easy classification, combining journalism, poetry and critical theory to craft what the prize's judges called "a new understanding both of Australia's actions and of Australia itself."

"Altogether, this is a demanding work of significant achievement," they explained in their citation. "No Friend But the Mountains is a literary triumph, devastating and transcendent."


He's still in detention after 5 years.

Huh. I suppose you can't be surprised that AMI assumed Bezos was unwilling to lose multiple billions of dollars in a messy, public divorse. Not sure if I like Bezos more or less after this story.

How illegal is this obvious blackmail, btw?
