i personally do not see the purpose of calling them anything but fox news and get pretty :? when i hear someone like chris hayes call them trump tv. we all know what they are but us not using the words "news" with their name does not change the fact that the press in general regard fox news' employees as journalists and has and will continue to come to their defense. everyone but msnbc came to their defense during obama and the next democratic president will still have to invite them to press briefings and play along with them regardless of what they are called.

"Trump TV" is a play to tie FNC to Trump which is short-term thinking that does little to continually hamstring the GOP as successor shitlords are ascendant. it also forgives them of their GWB crimes. chris hayes is also a fucking dork and is part of "the news" which is not actually the news which we call the news because it's "what the news is." hence allowing yourself the words "fox news" reifies and accepts FNC as "the news," which is what we call the news because it's "what the news is" even though it's not actually the news.

in our world lying favors conservatives. creating and enabling that kind of environment directly plays into their hands, and insisting on having some anti-septic conversation about race relations is the privilege of people who will never have to deal with the unclear and confusing rules of engagement of those frequently panicked conversations on the ground with mixed company. this disallows conversational dynamism, "learning opportunities," opportunities for mutual understanding, etc. exactly the sort of rule set that favors willfully ignorant liars.

person who qualifies as "white person" (if my understanding is incorrect let me know, i don't keep a spreadsheet, but you understand the broader pattern i'm describing) writing about "white people" as "them" and "they" will eventually be studied by academics if there are still academics (probably every white person with fingertips and thumbs under ~30 and many over has done this, i've done this, but i think this is another "playing into their hands" thing in terms of shit that isn't gonna do anybody any favors)

i guess my thrust here, judo masochistic as it is to be leaning into the potential for lazy dragging, is that the way a lot of people i otherwise agree with now elect to communicate on some foundational level partially enables open, flagrant dishonesty like this:

Trump administration is using federal disability law to disenfranchise minority voters

A majority-black county in rural Georgia announced a plan last week to close seven of its nine polling places ahead of the November election, claiming the polls cannot continue to operate because they are not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
...
The county is over 61 percent black, and one of the polling locations that would be shuttered serves a precinct where more than 95 percent of voters are African American. Had the U.S. Supreme Court not gutted the Voting Rights Act in 2013, the closures would most likely have been blocked by the Department of Justice.

being difficult about the language you use because it is fundamentally unfavorable as a rule set for acceptable communication for your purposes creates collective interest groups through binary questions posed by heightened contradictions creates new modes of communication creates subcultural affiliations creates new jargon creates broader acceptance of jargon enables adaptation and appropriation of the jargon and now you own people's minds and can activate and organize and people who are forced to exist in what are effectively the ideologically occupied territories of the United States (think cities in the Midwest or literally any large population of non-white people) can socially signal their solidarity or affiliation through the use of new methods of expression.

This is so fucking heinous:

In Randolph County, the closures are being orchestrated by elections consultant Mike Malone, who the county initially hired to help find a replacement elections supervisor after the previous person resigned. During testimony last week, one of the county’s two remaining elections officials said he contacted Secretary of State Brian Kemp (R)’s office for help filling the vacancy, and Kemp suggested the county hire Malone. It’s not clear why Malone decided to pivot from that task to pursuing the closure of polling places.

During a community meeting last week, Malone testified that his proposal is not racially-motivated, but about saving costs and helping the county comply with federal disability law.

“Is this the right time? The answer is no. It’s not. The reason it’s not the right time? It’s never the right time,” Malone said, responding to concerns that the closures are coming so close to an important election. When a county resident asked if he would be open to finding other ADA-compliant polling locations, Malone said that he was “not hired to find alternatives.”

this, for example, through no fault of your own is a failure of imagination in re: to what "we" as people who consider ourselves righteous or reasoned or whatever should not accept that it is an acceptable condition to be e.g. "rooting for" this guy to have been "legal" any more than we "root for" mass shooters to have "been white." efforts should be made to kill that at the root. it's a game of unfavorable terms. maybe that's just life but if you've got energy coursing through your body you don't have to accept the shit. you can revolt on a personal level. pitchforks in the street is difficult, but you can tranche yourself if you truly believe
