Please don't worry! Like my namesake I'm pretty tough. If there's stuff people ask me to boost, when I get back I'll try to boost it if it's still relevant. If you know my other contact info feel free to use it. Meanwhile keep making hate speech reports and fucking up Nazis 🐊😀

Hey I'm going on a Twitter hiatus for the rest of the month and maybe longer and probably won't get DMs. My health isn't great right now—not an accident or emergency, it's a chronic condition—and I'm trying to get more longform stuff done while I'm hopefully recovering.

For those who happily aren't familiar with this stuff, NRx stands for "Neoreactionary" and yeah it's exactly as fascist as it sounds.

RT @arthur_affect@twitter.com

@acid_communist@twitter.com @Meaningness@twitter.com @slatestarcodex@twitter.com There's a broad consensus among current NRxers that they got into NRx BECAUSE of Scott's FAQ about it

Everyone knows it's a stupid euphemism-slur, but I'm gonna be pedantic and say that until some point in the future when robot bodies maybe become a thing, all trans women *are* biological women.

In what will be a shock to no one who has been paying attention for the last six months, Heather Heying has gone full TERF. She says it herself, I'm not taking her out of context.

Warning for rape threat: another example of Facebook’s deeply broken moderation system.

@Tyson_fraley@twitter.com @AntiFashGordon@twitter.com @Antifagator@twitter.com I had a guy send me a picture of my apartment complex accompanied with a threat to sodomize my wife with a bottle. Facebook told me that was fine. I called him an idiot and I caught a 5 day ban for bullying.

Using the word “insane” as a synonym for nonsensical isn’t good but otherwise this quote is 💯

RT @mtsw@twitter.com

"Krysten Sinema went from being an early 2000s-era Green Party activist to a quasi-reactionary with an insane and nonsensical view of how government power works" is maybe less of a journey than people think

This is also the narrative that ends up supporting Republicans, who are busy pivoting to “any short term aid is gonna cause long term budget problems” attack. If we’re attacking Biden from the left can we actually make sure the attacks are accurate and actually from the left???

I wish people would stop falling for Politico bait headlines that confirm narratives they want to hear. If you want to understand stuff about Medicare budgeting and pay as you go please read about them on some other site.

Biden is going to make us pay for the one time $1400 checks by gutting Medicare and permanently cutting billions from critical infrastructure and social safety net subsidies.

This is what republicans always wanted, but could never actually get away with, even under Trump.

White supremacists have always loved pitting groups against each other. They're jumping in and pretending to be "team Asian" now but this is what Vincent James was saying last year:

NEW from LCRW: @ShelleDione@twitter.com covers the white nationalist response to the rise in anti-Asian attacks in the Bay Area. Hint: the fascists are trying to use them to stoke hatred of Black people. leftcoastrightwatch.org/2021/0

Some Nazi artists are technically good while being morally awful. These ones are just awful all around though, yikes

They also want me to die "alone and in pain". That's kind of how everyone goes (unless it's some kind of accident or explosion where a bunch of people instantly die at the same time) so I'm not taking it too personally.

I've seen a lot of wild stuff on Twitter but I got blocked twice today by the same person. And I wasn't following their threads or even replying to any of their posts.

So every time someone brings it up, they get swarmed by white people playing this creepy troll identity game. I'm sure Iverson is insulated by money and fame and doesn't know or care but it's still kind of abusive.

The ritual trolling itself is just another layer of racism. Of course I know who Iverson is, I'm in the US. Lots of people (including plenty of Black people) are not, and might have no clue who he is. But a bunch of almost all white Beijer/Grayzone fans claim they should.

Muting this thread to avoid tedious ritual trolling by Beijer/Grayzone fans of "you're racist if u don't know who Allen Iverson is" when anyone mentions digital blackface. Years ago it was a unique tactic that might have gotten under someone's skin, now it's just boring and sad.

RT @Antifagator@twitter.com

You know who actually *is* a digital blackface account? Glenn Greenwald's buddy "Carl Beijer". twitter.com/pplswar/status/119

I've always thought the whole political portmanteau thing is so overdone on Twitter and super corny but I'm still resisting the urge to start calling myself a Cancel Cultural Marxist now.

I wish Bakhtin was more widely read and commented on outside of academia... but a lot of people hated him for being a Marxist, and a lot of other people hated him for supposedly being anti-Marxist. You know how it goes lol.
