There's just no pleasing republikkans

Last year they whined and sniveled because the Democrats did not clap
This year they whine and snivel because House Speaker Pelosi clapped

I wish they'd make up their mind

It's time to end using the term 'racially insensitive'

It's racist.
We don't say, "Semitically Insensitive". We say anti-Semitic or antisemite
Joe Ricketts did not write racially insensitive things, he wrote racist things
Trump does not make racially insensitive comments, he makes racist comments

Why is it so much easier for people to say "He/She is antisemitic." But, it is so fricking difficult to say, "He/She is a racist."?

OPINION Why it's dangerous to equate the Left and the Right

For reasons that are perfectly understandable, many believe we are living in an age of uniquely toxic and rancorous politics. From Donald Trump’s racist rhetoric to Europe’s atmosphere of rising nationalism and pervasive anti-immigrant sentiment there is a growing sense of crisis and anxiety in liberal democracies about which many are rightly concerned.

But amid this climate, it has become fashionable to contend—particularly in the media—that left and right share equal or near equal responsibility for this state of affairs. The equivalence isn’t simply false—in today’s world, it’s downright dangerous. In this all-too-popular framing of current events, politics are imagined to be a kind of horseshoe—with left and right diverging from a supposedly reasonable, level-headed middle ground and converging at each end. To put it mildly, this is a case of “both sides-ism” at its worst.


A little historical perspective serves us well here. In the 20th century, left-wing anger gave us minimum wages, weekends, Medicare, and environmental regulation—institutions cherished by millions of Canadians. Even in some of its earlier and less hardline incarnations, the right resisted these reforms and sometimes sought to push things in the opposite direction.


It’s also become evident that there is a real and visceral ugliness festering on the fringes of conservatism, one made frighteningly visible by social media. And, in the age of Trump, elements of even the mainstream right seem increasingly willing to flirt with exclusionary nationalism and entertain the crudest forms of xenophobia and cultural resentment.

Witnesses claim to have seen Chun Doo-hwan play golf around time of his first trial

Former South Korean president Chun Doo-hwan, 88, who is being tried on charges of defaming the deceased, declined to appear at the first hearing of his criminal case in Aug. 2018 because he was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. But now the Hankyoreh has learned that Chun went golfing around the same time. Witnesses also say they saw Chun and his wife, Lee Sun-ja, at the same golf course this past December.

In a memoir published in Apr. 2017, Chun described the late Catholic father Cho Cheol-hyeon (also known as Cho Pius) as “Satan wearing a mask.” Cho testified that government martial law troops had fired on protesters from helicopters during the Gwangju Uprising in May 1980. Chun was indicted without detention on May 3, 2018, on the charge of libeling Cho.

Chun’s first hearing was held on Aug. 27, 2018, at the Gwangju District Court, but Chun didn’t appear at court, explaining that his Alzheimer’s symptoms were getting worse. He also failed to appear at the second hearing, which was held on Jan. 7, for similar reasons.


Chun and his party were also spotted by an individual surnamed Lee, 50. “I saw them from less than five meters away. And while I was playing golf, I could see them on the course behind me. Chun was walking around without a cane and hitting the ball without anyone’s help, and he didn’t seem to have any major health problems. In fact, he looked young. He sometimes would walk instead of riding on the cart, and their game was going really quickly,” Lee said.


Just call the assassin and dictator Trump Doo-hwan

As an FYI defamation is pretty serious here in Korea

Far-Right German Journalist Implicated In Firebombing Of Hungarian Center In Ukraine

KRAKOW, Poland -- A Polish man accused of involvement in the firebombing of a Hungarian cultural center in western Ukraine last year says he received instructions on the attack from a German journalist who has worked as a consultant for a German parliament deputy with the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.

Michal Prokopowicz, 28, told a Krakow court on January 14 that German journalist Manuel Ochsenreiter provided instructions for the February 4, 2018, attack on the headquarters of the Hungarian Cultural Association in Uzhhorod, the capital of the Zakarpattya region in western Ukraine.


No one was injured in the attack, but the incident -- and another fire attack on the building weeks later -- exacerbated already strained relations between Kyiv and Budapest over a Ukrainian education law that Hungary says restricts the right of ethnic Hungarians in Ukraine to be educated in their native language.

Prokopowicz is one of three Polish suspects with links to far-right movements who went on trial in Krakow on January 14 for the attack. Ukrainian authorities investigated the case and passed it along to their counterparts in Poland, where the three men were subsequently detained.
