More behind the cut
Hot Topic Black Lives Matter
Memorial in Houston TX for George Floyd yesterday. More conversation about defunding the police which doesn’t mean abolishing the police. There are 3 options 1-reform, 2-defund, 3-disband. What we’ve seen before with reforming was de-escalation and bias training and body cameras. Defunding means taking part of the police budget and reallocating it to other social services that provide better infrastructure to the community, such as more mental health professionals, medical health professionals, and so on. Disbanding means eliminating the police force who are terminated from their existing job and reapply under the new job description and organizational structure, such as what happened in Camden NJ. Joy says a lot of things, drawing analogies to other slogans. Meghan says more things, after reading and watching for the… last one day. Whoopi also says things.
Hot Topic #TrumpLiesAmericansDie
More kerfluffle about BunkerBoy©. I can’t hear his comments on it because I’ve watched @sarahcpr parody too many times. Barr who looks like the dad in that 1990s TV show Dinosaurs is CYA and said BunkerBoy© most certainly did get taken there because he was afraid.
Hot Topic Taking a Knee
BunkerBaby© still doesn’t understand or like the peaceful protest of taking a knee during the National Anthem, which doesn’t even belong at sporting events. The NFL and everyone else owes Colin Kaepernick an apology, his job back, and back pay. Joy agrees Colin should be recognized, and compares him to Mohammad Ali re/taking a stand for principle.
Congressional Democrats took a knee yesterday for 8 mins. Meghan compares it to Hong Kong protests. Was glad to see this peaceful protest taking place, given other nations who aren’t allowed.
Hot Topic Chris Wallace
Chris Wallace is promoting his book Countdown 1945. He’s the Sunday anchor for Faux News. Nothing he says matters because he chooses to earn a paycheck working for Fox News: Spreading Propaganda, Promoting Racism, and Killing Brain Cells, established 1996©
Plus some history on dropping the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the premise of his book.
Sidebar, Fox News likes to say they’re the most watched cable news. This is misleading. While Fox may have higher ratings, they’re the only option for the far right. Not being a nutjob wanting to watch nutjobs gives you multiple choices. Combine the ratings/viewers for CNN + MSNBC, and Fox isn’t so fancy.
Hot Topic What is Your Superpower
ABC News Correspondent Adrienne Bankert. She’s promoting her new book Your Hidden Superpower. This felt very ~Marianne Williamson-esque~. Tl;dr Be Kind, intentionally.
Ontd do you remember Dinosaurs “not the mama” baby?
