Not even Glenn Greenwald is safe from attack by the censorship brigade flooding social media. Says Glenn: “I had the privilege of having my name trend on Twitter for a good part of Wednesday and into Thursday morning because journalists in the liberal sector of media along with left/liberal activists accused me of transphobia and bi-phobia (with half-hearted accusations of misogyny tossed in) so many times that Twitter’s algorithm catapulted my name onto its sacred most-discussed list…”

Scathing exposé of Maddow’s tedious lies. “She’s a puke and a liar,” says Jimmy, and we agree. But she’s a presstitute, an obscenely well paid phony first and above all hired by powerful plutocratic forces that dominate both Fox and MSNBC, as all corporate media —”left” and “right”— sell the same message, just different packaging.

CALEB MAUPIN—Caleb’s discussion in this episode focuses on the evilness of imperialism, the natural spawn of capitalism; the rise of the Sino-Russian alliance in Eurasia, the ugliness of Jim Crow, and the importance of doing the right thing at all times. And much more.

SHANNON KEATING—Sometimes — a lot of the time, really — these performances work. For most (white) Americans, or at least those who aren’t activists or organizers or obsessive politicos, it’s often enough for leaders to at least look like they’re doing or saying the right things. Democrats and Republicans alike who find themselves longing for the guidance of presidents past — who still think there’s a world in which we could conceivably “go back to normal” — aren’t so much hungering for better policies, but for better optics. Trump, though he’s finally lost the support of some Republican leaders who say they won’t back his reelection, has nonetheless faithfully (if oafishly) executed much of the Republican agenda, from rollbacks of LGBTQ rights and environmental protections to flooding the courts with conservatives.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—The people pretending to care about these allegations do not care about rape, and they do not care about women. I recently had my Twitter privileges suspended by someone who called me a “rape apologist” for not automatically subscribing to the “believe all women” meme in the case of a known CIA target, and, when I informed him that I myself am a rape victim, this man called me a liar. I went off on him, and he reported me. This man has never cared about rape or women, and it’s entirely likely that he’s done things to women that push the same boundaries on sexual consent he’s accusing Assange of doing, or worse.
