Prominent LGBTQ Native American Anthropologist and Professor who died of covid-19 turns out to have never existed, created by award winning activist BethAnn McLaughlin by scrubking in politics

By the looks the latest entries in her Wikipedia page, the woman that certainly created that phony account seems like she's about at the end of her rope:

McLaughlin currently works at MeTooSTEM, the non-profit organisation that she founded in order to advise scientists who are victims of sexual harassment.[5] Seven leaders left the #MeTooSTEM advocacy group in 2019 after complaining about the abrasive style of and lack of transparency by McLaughlin.[14] Two more members in leadership positions of the organisation resigned in 2020 after alleging that they were "bullied" by McLaughlin.[15]

On August 3, 2020, McLaughlin's Twitter account was suspended.[16]

This is kinda eerie. Been following all morning.

Their (America's Frontline Doctors) video from yesterday was scrubbed from Facebook, Youtube and Twitter. I was watching their livestream this morning and it's just crashed.

Was reading a /r/conservitive/ (groan, I know) thread about yesterdays video and top comment is attempting to discredit the video and explain it all away by shaming one of the doctors [Stella Immanuel] for her crazy views on some medical topics. But the "head" doctor is a fairly vetted DR, Simone Gold. Not sure about the other DRs as the list of them on their website has been overloaded (DDOS?) all morning.

Seems like there is so much more to loose, than there is to gain in woke/cancel culture these days. It only a matter of time before you piss off one group or another.

I agree with your questions. I believe it is a combination of some of them, but mostly poverty.

You are missing one question that some will want answered: Is it genetics? At my core, I do not believe that. But all of these questions should be studied (and maybe others) if we actually want to improve the statistics. Instead we mostly ignore root causes; and instead focus on after the fact band-aids (like free stuff and preferential treatment) and ridiculous posts on social media (black boxes and thoughts & prayers) - because they are easy and quickly show our virtue.

I suppose it doesn't matter much; but I hope that when I vote something as Fun, the person who posted it dosn't automatically assume I think it's "Funny". I know we often ironically vote Fun, but usually that is not my intention.

I Agree with you. Believe it or not, I actually downloaded the 9gag app recently. Even though it's choked full of reposts, there is way less political crap on there (and if there was moderation in regards to the categories, there would be none). Sometimes a guy just wants to browse some silly memes.

I'm glad saidit has politics and serious stuff, but if I could just find a politics-free site I would be in heaven with a second place to visit.

Personally, I don't think most (maybe any) of these are nefariously started.

I do think that these virus epidemics are overblown however. And the over-hyping may very well be nefarious. Or at the vary least, the media builds it up for more ad revenue. And the end result is way more panic than is justified, especially if you take a true look at what is around you that might actually kill you... And which of those can be more efficiently mitigated.

Funny that she practiced at least 3 times first. Or maybe she was getting the tear started so it would be easier? Either way, it was completely premeditated political theater, not some act of passion.

Super Bowl outrage: Beyonce and Jay-Z spark fury as they sit down during national anthem by bradlux in news

Seems kinda disrespectful when Jay-Z just signed a big contract with the NFL, and Beyonce has sung the national anthem and performed in 2 halftime shows.

WTF. Adam Schiff's daughter Alexa Schiff is dating whistleblower Eric Ciaremalla. Why isn't this front page news? by Chipit in news

Too juicy to be true.

But I'd be shocked if it's the same "Eric".

That's my point for the post I suppose, and the reason I'm here more than there these days.

How Is That Legal? by EndlessSunflowers in WayOfTheBern

[–]One_Jack_Move 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Taxbreaks are incentives, silly - and it's been this way for decades I'm sure. Do you want a company driving for pure profit - or would you rather they took some of their profits and invested it in equipment and R&D to offset taxes? The idea is that if companies invest more, it is better for the economy than if they just pump out profits.

I guess Bernie would rather companies would just pay more taxes and potentially even reduce their profits (to pay less taxes), rather than invest more in their company. That way the government can do what THEY want with that money. Is that better for the economy and/or the country as a whole? You be the judge I guess.

You are supposedly mature enough to help control your countries leaders, but not to control your own body.

That was great. The explanation at the end seemed cheep and unnecessary.
Let the audience use their own imagination, IMO. Guess they needed a way to end it tho, so...

Maybe I'm missing this, but I'd like to be able to see a list of posts where I voted Insightful and/or Fun.

I can see this on reddit from my userpage.

I'd like to see this graphed over time somehow. It's possible we actually have more choices than in the past.

I see a lot of local products on the shelves in my local grocery stores.
And I'm talking Kroger, not Whole Foods or Wegman's here.

A hollow "statue" made out of wood?
Seems like burning it was always their intention.

Sounds great, but don't blog about it.

At least not until you are fully trusted. Otherwise you'll probably be found out and fired before you learn anything useful.

If I had the time I would apply to this job, try to get in good and then expose as much as possible to the public.

Anyone game?
