Am I the only one to note the uncanny resemblance between #DonaldTrump and Charles Le Brun's Pig Man and Boar Man?
@jack Exactly. The only reason it still spreads is because of the patience we exist in has such a tolerance for hate.
@Are0h absolutely. Neutrality has failed. Bigotry has no side that stands up to reason. It deserves no quarter in the results.
@jack Yeah, there's a crew of them that have been coming at me since I started my instance.
I like using them as examples from time to time because it proves that bigots just can't leave us alone, so this idea if we don't do anything, they'll go away is patently false.
Which is why I always say remaining neutral *always* benefits people like that. They take advantage of people's cowardice.
The parallels between what is happening in the Democratic Party and what is happening on the fedi are so compelling.
PROGRESSIVE white folks say they want diversity and inclusion, but when it happens and the profile and agency of POC rise and they feel that privilege slipping away, they revert back to the same racist maneuvers.
The only thing I'm interested in is forward progress.
I do not care about white guys whining about how and why they can't continue being assholes without consequence.
I do not care about people who want to status of said white guys to rub off on them, so they underwrite their non-sense.
The way forward is clear. Either you do it our you don't.
Anything that doesn't contribute to that is just people putting their biases above progress.
Ha, and we know where that comes from.
Collateral damage as the Vaxxers pursue their ridiculous delusion:
@roxy also, a lot of the most "advanced AI" stuff that's being done, isn't AI. There's a human being in the decision chain, hidden from view. G's Assistant places calls using humans at least a quarter of the time.
it feels too much like training people to not /see/ the humans they're ordering around anymore.
No longer reluctant Birdsite exile. Writer/journalist-type creature. Still pseudonymous & living off banditry & the sale of old relics. The usual.
