Moscow bans ceremony honouring victims of Stalin’s Terror

( Sad… You know where Putin is going with this. Ironically, the fanatically Pro-USA First right-wing media will be all aboard on this, as long as can be seen to be in line with their Trumpism. )

Moscow city authorities have refused permission for an annual ceremony honouring victims of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, according to Russia’s most prominent human rights group.

Memorial, the country’s oldest rights group, has held a 12-hour ceremony every year on 29 October for the past 11 years.

Fox News viewers literally have no idea how bad things are under Trump: historian

Nothing new in this analysis, but people need to be reminded (or informed for the first time) of the 20+ years of fascist right-wing brainwashing from Fox “News” and it’s allies. Especially, if they’re stuck trying to argue with these brainwashed wing-nuts.

I stopped dealing with these White Status-Quo people ages ago. I don’t have the skin-color luxury (or self-loathing-need) to play the self-serving and delusional game of, “Well as long as we don’t talk politics, religion, etc, aren’t we just the same?”

That’s just White Privilege talking, whether you’re right, left, or center status-quo.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tells Trump Jr. to ‘get out’ if he ‘can’t stand the heat’

INTRO:

New progressive champion Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke to Anderson Cooper during Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” and actually apologized if the president was hurt by her insults. 

“If he felt genuinely threatened by me, then I apologize,” she said. “But I think that frankly, it’s any legal advice that anyone would give him.”

Ocasio-Cortez noted that Trump should probably not come on the attack against those in Congress because they now have subpoena power over him. 

Cooper reminded her that most politicians don’t apologize, but Ocasio-Cortez said she doesn’t mind breaking all of the rules.
