“Respite” Open Thread: Tucker Carlson on Unplanned Vacation

IIRC, Bill O’Reilly went from ‘sudden vacation’ to ‘suspended’ to ‘Bill who?’ when he pushed the boundaries a little too far. One can hope that Carlson will also be forced into doing podcasts from his basement… assuming Tucker’s penthous *has* a basement…

    Iowa Poll — Monmouth University* — August 4

    Biden……….28%
    Warren…….19%
    Kamala…….11%
    Wilmer……….9%
    Pete…………..8%
    Amy…………..3%
    Steyer………..3%
    Gillibrand……2%
    Yang…………..2%
    Booker……….1%

    The latest Monmouth poll shows a big drop in Sanders support among voters likely to attend the Iowa caucuses

    … Biden continues to lead the Democratic field with 28% support among voters who are likely to attend the Iowa caucuses in February 2020. This is nearly identical to his 27% support level in April. [Note: Biden had not yet declared his candidacy at the time of Monmouth’s first 2020 poll in Iowa.] However, Warren is now closing the gap at 19% support, up from 7% four months ago. Support for Sanders has gone in the opposite direction, now at 9% compared with 16% in April. California Sen. Kamala Harris clocks in at 11% (up from 7%) and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg has 8% (similar to his 9% in April).

    Wilmer nearly won this state 3 years ago. Now he’s sunk to a single digit and faces a humiliating 5th place finish.

    @laura:

    With such large raids I can’t imagine why they didn’t coordinate. Now we are hearing reports of missing children. Hopefully neighbors, friends, teachers, and churches have taken the kids in, but I’m really worried about their safety. You g kids are vulnerable to trafficking. Older kids are vulnerable to trafficking and gang recruitment. I’m beside myself – but this subject of child protection hits close to home because of my work life. I’m feeling panicked.

    I’ve always thought we should never use “white supremacy” but should instead say “white delusions”. Those clowns are losers who know that the only way they can be considered successful is if white people are by definition considered more successful than any others. They demand that everyone else recognize their delusions as reality.

    Yeah, when they say they just want to hang around with their own kind and celebrate white culture, somehow I’m guessing they’re not reciting John Donne sonnets to one another. I remember back when Larry King was doing radio, a white supremacist type would occasionally call in and complain that he was being discriminated against because he was white. And King would reply, “Sir, you’re being discriminated against because you’re stupid.”

    Oof. I’ve been hip-deep this summer in the history of white supremacy, so it is (the tiniest bit) gratifying to see this bigot “vacationed” for a period.
    My College is using MARCH – the illustrated history of John Lewis’s role in the Civil Rights movement – as a cross-college read. I am doing all of the curriculum tie-ins and extra history materials for faculty. One of the things I wanted to provide them was a series of careful definitions — an important one being the definition for “white supremacy.”

    Too often I feel like “white supremacy” conjures images of skinheads, neo-Nazis, etc., (and FSM knows there are plenty of those around) and this lets off the (arguably) more dangerous white supremacists that understand tact and context.
    Anyway, I develop this definition from Stephen Kantrowitz, a historian of … white supremacy (Ben Tillman and the Reconstruction of White Supremacy ahem)

    Total and unconditional white male monopoly on authority, in every sphere of life — from the household to national politics. Reinforced from plantations and farms to the Supreme Court, and achieved through the entire legal, social and economic system.

    And this definition for “demagoguery” (since Trump is the Grand Dragon of White Supremacy) is really marvelous, though it relates to the sad case of Sen. Lester Hunt (D-WY) Dying for Joe McCarthy’s Sins by Rodger McDaniel:

    “Characterized by an appeal to prejudice and ignorance rather than logic and reason, demagoguery flourished during times when people have rational cause to be concerned about events beyond their control. By manipulating their fears, demagogues give frightened people an invitation to think irrationally about difficult times.” p. 146

    And folks if you’ve never found Peggy McIntosh’s article on White Privilege (“Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack”) you’re really missing out. (Essay is googleable)

    So then if GOP retains Senate, as is likely…so if he wins, Biden is banking on what exactly? This “unknown” asset will make McConnell will treat his presidency better than PBO….hmmm….not what could that asset be…

    Joe Biden, touring Iowa, told reporters, in so many words, that his plan is to have an ineffectual, failed presidency. Or, as Biden put it more pithily, “Ending the filibuster is a very dangerous move.”

    Biden is expressing one of his most deeply held beliefs, which is his boundless faith in the goodness of the Senate. This is the point Biden was attempting to make in his controversial nostalgic riff about his history of working with segregationists. The Senate brings people together, even people as different as Joe Biden and the segregationists. (Biden failed to anticipate that some Democrats would interpret this to mean that Biden and the segregationists were not so different after all)…

She was by law the person who replaced Coats after he left, and after a week or so spent trying to get around that they just kicked her out.

    Big Ag runs on undocumented Immigrant Labour,

    This is more like a shift change for them with the bonus that the next group of undocumented Immigrants will be even more compliant.

    Here’s the video of CNN reporting that Trump forced that now-orphaned baby

    Forced“? Really?

    I’m not defending Trump, but that claim doesn’t even make sense. Someone somewhere in the reporting chain is making that up.

    And the infant had several broken bones from the mass shooting.

    Who subjects an injured infant to that Campaign Ad Recording rather than keeping them home, in peace and quiet, to rest and heal?

    When they tell you who they are, believe them.

    Sooner or later, they will show you who they are.

    Joe Biden, touring Iowa, told reporters, in so many words, that his plan is to have an ineffectual, failed presidency. Or, as Biden put it more pithily, “Ending the filibuster is a very dangerous move.”

    FUCK. THIS. SHIT.

    The institution is gone and the GOP has no incentive to bring it back until they are forced to. You win the Senate, you end the filibuster, and you go the fuck. to. town. Legal abortion. Gun bans. Taxes. Single payer. Add 2 court justices. Then offer to negotiate to bring it back.

    Man, Harris needs to bring her A game on this next debate, because bickering over single payer is fucking pointless. Go after Joe for being fucking in denial about what the GOP is willing to do, and what Democrats need to be willing to do.

    Delurking to note that I’m seeing some interesting theories regarding the very young looking mass shooting survivor here in Dayton. Including one from a man in San Antonio who looked at Dayton’s local news feeds for more shooting victims and decided that a 7 year old girl who’d been shot Tuesday evening could be the actual pt in the picture.
    The family did indeed drive the girl from west Dayton east to MVH. Because it’s two miles closer than Dayton Children’s, which is an excellent Level II Trauma pediatric hospital. So MVH would not be keeping a 7 year old patient because they don’t have a pediatric unit. And the area of west Dayton the girl was shot is primarily black. So no, the very young looking pt. is probably not a 7 year old shooting victim from west Dayton. Or any other pediatric trauma victim.
