Welcome to the Freethought Forum
The lofty high Renaissance and marked mannerism. The heavy and ornate Baroque era, followed by the gentle Rococo. Harsh neo-classicism, rich romanticism, lush naturalism, stern realism, blurred impressionism. Heady surrealism, blockish cubism, postwar Dada, pointy-cornered art deco and cookie cutter Bauhaus. Let us skip the dreariness of the past half century and arrive finally at FF Style.

A twist and a turn
Nov 24, 2019 - 11:08 PM - by LarsMac
So relaxing in the local Coffee dive this afternoon, reading my favorite local rag, I can across this:
AOC thinks white supremacy is behind climate change

The good misterDanish Starts with:
-
A couple weeks ago Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) claimed that climate change is linked to, wait for it, white supremacy.

She also claimed that the way we can combat climate change is by “honoring indigenous wisdom.”

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez spoke at a rally for Bernie Sanders held during a Climate Change Summit at Drake University in Des Moines. Here’s her full quote:

“The way we inoculate ourselves from continuing to burn up our planet at unsustainable level triggering feedback loops that we have not even begun to comprehend is by honoring indigenous wisdom and allowing it to guide our climate policy.

“The way that we preserve our systems is by transitioning to principles of universality, that means I want you clothed, I want you educated, I want you paid a living wage — no ifs, ands, or buts. And what that also means… is directly, consciously, combating white supremacy in the United States of America.”

She also took a shot at “consultants” who encourage climate activists to focus on the technical solutions to climate change instead of social justice.

“Just worry about solar panels, leave the social justice stuff behind,” she said of their advice. “Race makes everything complicated.”
-

Well, Mr Danish omitted a bit of what she said that probably is even more relevant

She said: "At this moment when the climate crisis becomes impossible to deny ... at this very moment these figures who are so expert at the art of spreading division" are rising, she said. "I believe that we all know on the cellular level that... [Read More]

Election debate: Conservatives criticised for renaming Twitter profile 'factcheckUK' - BBC News



From the linkNevertheless, an important threshold has now been repeatedly breached by Britain's party of government, and Twitter is the site where it happened.

It is perhaps arguable that, like the doctored video of Sir Keir Starmer a fortnight ago, the re-branding of CCHQ as a fact-checking service falls into the broad category known as satire.

But that is a stretch. The effect will have been to dupe many unknowing members of the public, who genuinely thought it was a fact-checking service when it gave opinions on Jeremy Corbyn.

[...] in CCHQ this morning there will be younger staff who chalk this up as a victory.
