Deeply conservative, they organize online and outside the Republican Party apparatus, engaging in more explicit versions of the chest-beating seen at the president’s rallies.

The Left has yet to call out or even acknowledge that it has extreme elements. Worse, academics and news media have excused or endorsed those elements. Until the Left gets its own house in order, it has no right whatsoever to bandy about terms like "far right".

How President Trump's impeachment inquiry unfolded, sung by the Washington International Chorus.

Notice the naked obfuscation This wasn't a song organically sung by a choir, the BBC wrote a political rant as a song, hired a US choir to sing it, and then passed the whole fetid mess off as "news."

Fair enough, though, since I view this as payback for Obama telling the UK to vote no on Brexit

Why is the president of the United States cyberbullying a 16-year-old girl?

Hell no, you don't get to do that. Either Thunberg is a young adult spearheading a political movement, in which case she's fair game for criticism & ridicule, or she's a child, in which case she receives protection by the world not holding her responsible for her speech and deeds, so she can be entirely ignored.

But you can't claim both.

Seeing what Trump is doing to America, many find it hard to fight off despair.

iI got back in touch with a woman I’d met there, an army veteran and mother of three named Katie Landsman.

The first screaming red flag is that Kathryn Landsman is a Dream Vacation Planner in Acworth GA according to LinkedIn, but no military service whatsoever is listed. After just a cursory glance, she doesn't appear to have served under her current married name or her maiden name.

Another screaming red flag is the fact that Katie Landsman has been a rife political ideologue for years:

Katie Landsman watched her 11-year-old son embrace Jon Ossoff at his cramped Marietta campaign office. The boy was bawling. He had just learned about the horrors of the Holocaust, she explained, and wanted to meet a young politician who gave him hope. Democrats hope to leverage 'Ossoff effect', AJC, 5/21/17

The Brexit Party took one for the team, literally standing down candidates in contested districts. As a result, the Tories - led by a Brexit supporter - walloped Labour and annihilated the Lib Dems. Sod Piers. How in the hell is this not a huge victory for the Brexit Party?

Once a political punching bag for the GOP the House Speaker is enjoying not only a last laugh but also a major comeback — mostly because she has been more successful than any other Democrat at out-maneuvering and often out-foxing President Trump, write David Gergen and James Piltch.

The wedding industry routinely denies the violent conditions Black people faced under chattel slavery by promoting plantations as romantic places to marry.

The tourism industry routinely denies the violent conditions X people faced under chattel slavery by promoting X as interesting places to visit. By that same idiotic logic, you shouldn't visit the Pyramids, the White House, the Great Wall, or Teotihuacan.

Chinese restaurant Lucky Lee's, opened by white nutritionist Arielle Haspel, shuts down less than a year after accusations of racism and cultural appropriation

This is particularly stupid.

Japanese uses Chinese characters, as does Korean (at least in names). Most restaurants in Japan will have "Chinese-style fried rice" and potstickers, both of which are Chinese imports. Some Japanese quite enjoy Korean shuchu/soju because it makes a nice cocktail. I'd be hard-pressed to count how many "Japanese" or "Japanese-style" restaurants there are here in China. Most curry in China (unless you get it from a Thai or Indian place) is Japanese-style (a little sweet, never spicy), which the Japanese imported from the Brits, who imported it from India.

The rest of Asia "copied" chopsticks from China...but China "copied" beer from Germany, business attire from Europe, and pop music from the US. That's a whole lot of "appropriating" going on.
