"Al Qaeda after 9/11 was not as much of a threat to us [as] this domestic movement of Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, militia men, neo-Nazis, Qanon types - what I would call ‘MAGA terrorists’."

"Too many in the media bottled it. At some point we have to own this. Donald Trump and his mob succeeded in getting this far because we, the media, failed. We failed you."

I have been waiting four long years to say this. It's important.

In the end, Trump cost Republicans the Presidency, the Senate, and the House. The son of a bitch actually did it. He made America great again.

IMPORTANT: In the coming weeks expect Democrats to push respond to this moment by pushing for:

-more surveillance
-more policing
-more Internet censorship

This is the exact opposite of what we need to do. We need to address this problem at its root: systemic racism & injustice

Imagine a Cheney inviting people to compare body counts. Facts:

* Despite 7 years of investigation, the US has never identified a single casualty of my whistleblowing (there are none).

* The Cheneys' wars caused more than 50,000 US casualties since 2000: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_S twitter.com/Liz_Cheney/status/

The primary public figures still openly against ending the War on Whistleblowers are now down to John Brennan, Dick Cheney's progeny, and (literally) one tentacle-porn enthusiast. That's how far we've come.

Refusing to seat the 126 Republican House signers-on to that lawsuit is an absolutely perfect example of the kind of thing Democrats do not have the spine to do but Republicans would do in a heartbeat were the partisan roles reversed. Wouldn't hesitate for a second.

Ugh yes this. It's also hella cliquish, and it's interesting that people will talk about making tech more welcoming but will adopt a string of drama-referencing, ultra-contextual, "you can tell if you belong here or not by whether you get it" in-joke screen names twitter.com/amynewell/status/1
