Re: Words I Happen to Dislike

Athleisure used for humor is funny.

As an actual portmanteau it can fuck off with that.

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

Yes that was something else.

Man what kind of Europeans do these yutzes think we were getting from 1860-1920? (this is also a fun time to bring up the mainstream appeal of catholic conspiracy theories during that period.)

Alright Oxford comma bitches, read this sentence, “The jet's passengers included Prince Andrew, a millionaire, and a paedophile.”

Pop quiz, how many people are being referred to?
Three. Otherwise it'd be written different.

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

I don't think it takes a particularly conservative viewpoint to be skeptical of the motivations behind the NYT running a series about how America was Really and Truly founded on slavery. Does anyone actually believe it's going to be a scholarly, dispassionate inquiry? It doesn't take a rocket surge...

Re: the entirely civil and thoughtful israel thread

Also, how is Ben Shapiro a thing and why is he considered a “conservative intellectual”? He somehow was unsure that Steve King was racist and today he said, “I don’t think Trump meant Democratic Jews were disloyal to Israel,” about an hour before Trump said, “I meant Democratic Jews were disloyal t...

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

Not that I'm a conservative whisperer or anything, and Trumpism aside, but I think they see themselves as fighting a losing battle to hang onto some kind of common national myths and social institutions that are the only thing that make the US a Nation. They hate po mo talk primarily because of thi...

The nature of the divisive thing from the right is they think the standard national myths are important. Divisive is “you are eroding the glue of America as a nation”.

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

The divisive thing is a weird criticism. The people who would feel uh divisive'd or whatever by the project aren't reading the times.

"Divisive" is all over Twitter but it's a lot of federalist schmucks (redundant) from my cursory glances.

Re: When journalism goes bad

The series seems good so far but I also agree with the overall thrust of the centrality of slavery in shaping modern America.

The preserve our history via racist statue people on Twitter are inadvertently proving the necessity of the project. Presuming it's not just posturing and slash or Twitter.

Obviously? I know you're being flippant but it's clear that natural rights are as socially constructed as you can get. See also founding of America v. Concurrent entrenched Slavery.
