@Nzall As always, governments are trying to shift blame away from their corporate donors who are at fault for all this, and skiff the blame onto the average citizen.
I'm starting to think governments are garbage
 
12:05 PM
@Nzall The UK government deciding that it's not their problem? Well I never!

Fox News doesn't even have a peep about the Capitol Police testimonies today. Guess they haven't figured out how they want to spin it yet. Do have an article on "Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher's 'controversial' bathing routines for their kids", though!
Spoiler alert: They only bathe them when they look dirty, not every day. OH THE CONTROVERSY! THANK YOU FOX NEWS FOR BRINGING THIS TO OUR ATTENTION
 
How old are the kids? I'm guessing pretty young if the kids aren't bathing themselves.
 
Yeah, I guess maybe it would be controversial if they're like 16 or something
eww

@Sterno you didn't bathe with your parents at 16?
 
6:13 PM
@Sterno Unclear how you can have the energy to bathe your kids every day and do an insurrection, really feel like this is misdirected effort
 
How about bathing your children while doing an insurrection?
 
Part of me is impressed by that theoretical level of multitasking but the rest of me still enjoys preserving democracy and whatnot
 
@PrivatePansy I wanted to make a joke here about red ballots, but it wouldn't make sense for a non-Belgian audience because it's based on an infamous belgian sketch
If you ever learn enough Dutch for a conversational level, I recommend you look up "vaneigens rood washandje" so you get the joke

Inside a KKK murder plot apnews.com/article/…
> That investigation would unearth another secret: An unknown number of klansmen were working inside the Florida Department of Corrections, with significant power over inmates, Black and white.
> Driver, known by his fellow klansmen as “Brother Thomas,” was there with Sarge Moran, who was also a prison guard. Moran had worked for the Florida Department of Corrections for decades; he’d also been a klansman for years. He had been disciplined more than once by the corrections department for violent incidents, according to records obtained by The AP. Despite this, Moran had been kept in a position of power over inmates.
> "White supremacist groups have historically engaged in strategic efforts to infiltrate and recruit from law enforcement,” said an FBI document released by a congressional committee in September, about four months before the Capitol riots. In the intelligence assessment, written in 2006, the FBI said some in law enforcement were volunteering “professional resources to white supremacist causes with which they sympathize.”
I'm starting to think cops might be racist, idk
> In November, a Georgia deputy was caught on an FBI wiretap boasting about targeting Black people for felony arrests so they couldn’t vote, and recruiting colleagues into a group called “Shadow Moses.” In 2017, an interim police chief in Oklahoma was found to have ties to an international neo-Nazi group. In 2014, two officers in Fruitland Park, Florida, were outed as klansmen and forced to quit.
That Georgia officer should spend the rest of their life in prison. That's such a gross abuse of power, in addition to being an attack on Democracy.
> Despite repeated examples, white supremacists who are fired from law enforcement jobs after being discovered can often find jobs with other agencies.
> Domestic terrorism experts have been calling for better screening to help identify extremists before they’re hired. Some states, such as California and Minnesota, have tried to pass new screening laws, only to be prevented by police unions, whose legal challenges argued successfully that such queries violate free speech rights.
Fuck police unions.
> On a recent visit to the prison where the three klansmen worked, numerous cars and trucks in the employee and volunteer parking lots were decorated with symbols associated with white supremacy: Confederate flags, QAnon symbols and Thin Blue Line flag decals.
