liberation!!!

Liberalism is not an answer to the rise of xenophobia, white nationalism, and fascism in America. It never has been. It was Franklin D. Roosevelt who put Japanese-Americans in internment camps. It was John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson who gave legitimacy to Hoover’s counter-intelligence programs in order break the revolutionary potential of Black, Brown, and Native liberation movements. It was Bill Clinton who gave teeth to an incarceration system which destroys communities of color. And it has been Barrack Obama who has deported and detained more Latinos than all other presidents combined. Liberalism has always been a reluctant and feckless coconspirator. None of this is a defense of conservatism, it is, as Steven Salaita put it, “an invitation to discover (or create) a politics that doesn’t necessitate dispossession,” to build progressive and radical solutions. 

Born on this day in 1886, Diego Rivera was instrumental to Mexico’s modern art movement, where he championed Mexican culture and the rights of the workers in his mural projects. While working in the United States, he made these portable murals depicting the struggle of farm laborers.  See them today in Paint The Revolution.

Depaul University bans a Jewish guy from even speaking at or even attending a lecture on free speech. 

The entire lecture left the on-campus lecture hall and walked a couple blocks to another theater. 

The education systems and institutions deplatform and refuse to allow free thought or speech. Anyone that disagrees with them is the enemy and must be silenced. 

They hired 30 guards to keep out a single short Jewish guy that was invited by their students.

Liberals mount campaign to save Obamacare
By RACHANA PRADHAN

Liberal groups plan to mount a campaign to save Obamacare, sharing the personal stories of thousands of Americans who would lose health insurance in a last-ditch effort to block Republicans’ agenda to gut the law early next year.

The goal of the campaign is to take back the narrative from Republican critics who depict the law as a government boondoggle by spotlighting how it has helped millions of Americans who wouldn’t otherwise have health insurance. The campaign will fly in Obamacare enrollees to try to meet with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, lobby members in their home districts, hold rallies and run ads on social media.

“The most important piece is getting the stories out,” said one source with knowledge of the coalition’s plans. “These are not Democrats that are going to lose their health coverage. It’s everyone.”

The campaign will detail how many people in each state would lose coverage if the law is repealed, as well as the negative impact on hospitals and other health care organizations, sources tell POLITICO.

Dodging drug laws, B.C. unveils plans to immediately offer supervised-injection services in Vancouver and other cities
The announcement made by B.C.’s ministry of health marks a major policy shift that could change how supervised-injection sites are established across Canada.

Today (December 8) two new supervised-injection sites for drug users will open in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.

The following week, similar facilities will open in Surrey and Victoria. Later this month, additional sites will open in all three jurisdictions.

The surprise announcement made by B.C.’s ministry of health marks a major policy shift that could change how supervised-injection sites are established across Canada.

Up until now, programs like Vancouver’s Insite facility have required exemptions from federal drug laws, and the former Conservative government made those exemptions very difficult to obtain.

The two sites opening today do not have exemptions from the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act that authorities previously insisted they required to open.

In a telephone interview, B.C. health minister Terry Lake said today’s action was taken out of necessities created by the fentanyl crisis and unpreceded numbers of drug overdose deaths.

It’s the anniversary of that fateful summer night in August of 2014 that started with the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ lie that was propagated by every mainstream liberal media across this country. The New York Times, The Washington Post, the LA Times, the Chicago Tribune, CNN, MSNBC all propagated that ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ lie. It was from that time forward that this concept of fake news was talked about
