So now he's issuing an executive order against one of the media platforms most responsible for his rise to power.

How soon before Mark Burnett is caught up in a little purge?

EDIT: I have no idea why autocorrect turned "purge" into "little"?

Ok I had to find something to unpack the assumptions. Here’s a start.

BAP argues that life, fundamentally, is a “struggle for space.” All life seeks to develop its powers and master the surrounding matter and space to the maximum extent possible. For the lower species, this simply means mass reproduction and enlarging habitat. For the higher animals, it means controlling terrain, dominating other species, dominating the weaker specimens within your own species, getting first dibs on prey and choice of mates, and so on.

I'm somewhat serious actually. I'm about 90% sure he means dirty foreigners, but one can never be too careful in making assumptions about esoteric fringe ideologies.

You're thinking of phrenology. Physiognomy is a related but distinct belief that facial features reveal a person's character. It's basically phrenology for people who can't be bothered to use calipers.

Okay, I spent the time to unpack this thing. And my takeaway is "whatever" to the content but HOLY FUCK do I hate twitter. Like more and more every day hate hate HAAAAAAATE. It's like if you tried to come up with the absolute most incomprehensible disorganized way of communicating ideas and everybody went Oh, yes! Let's take the fundamental problem of miscommunication and dial it up to eleven and have everyone do that.

FUCK TWITTER
is what I'm trying to say here.

So what the fuck? This stuff strikes me as hella-stupid on all sides. Is this some new political coalition that's tipping elections or something? Why should we be paying attention to this pile of manure?

I am still having trouble parsing this one. I can't even figure out if the thing 'popularized' is mask wearing or the concept of virtue signaling. The only parts I'm sure about are 'these people' and 'most retarded batshit imaginable' and even that nouns batshit and nouning is a weird.

I don't know who "these people" are, and therefore I also don't know who "we" are. I took it to mean that the "good concept" was "virtue signaling" and the claim that people wearing masks only did it to virtue signal was the batshit part.

I will defend a lot of things on oped pages, but I don't think news outlets should give bully pulpits to politicians. They should report on what politicians say and let others critique or defend those ideas on the oped pages.
