Twitter Web App : Just checked and yep, the United States Capitol is still surrounded by barbed wire fences and there's no reason to believe they're going away any time soon

Twitter Web App : James Zimmermann I was a bit shocked in the moment given the previous tone of the conversation for hours upon hours -- but not so shocked in retrospect

Twitter Web App : The most depressing aspect of this bizarre episode was that a woman who insightfully participated in the conversation for several hours -- and ostensibly had no discernible qualms -- later turned on a dime and denounced the entire thing as racist violence upon Black bodies twitter.com/jameszimmerman…

Twitter Web App : It's incredible that this isn't some parody troll account, but the Legal Affairs Editor at Condé Nast twitter.com/ZaleskiLuke/st…

Twitter Web App : Can verify: totally fictitious nonsense propagated by Taylor Lorenz. Just never happened. Weird that she continues making such severe journalistic errors and the NYT doesn't care, so long as those errors all go in the same direction twitter.com/pegobry/status…

Twitter Web App : When you try to convey the reality of "woke rhetoric" it can sound like ridiculously implausible parody, but this is a 100% real quote twitter.com/mmeJen/status/…

iPhone : Incredible: my co-moderator for several hours was a black man, and the stage at the time of the “coup” was majority non-white. Also, as I explained multiple times the title of the room was meant to convey disillusion with how “anti-woke” chats tend to lack any “wokism” proponents twitter.com/thejayagenda/s…

Twitter Web App : Alright they somehow launched a coup and booted me as moderator, and then ejected all white people from the speaker stage. lol

Twitter Web App : It's international too which is doubly interesting: US, Egypt, UK, Jamaica, Sweden

Twitter Web App : I actually started a new room trying to remedy this very issue, and sure enough it's expanded into a large multi-racial discussion of "Wokism." Pretty fascinating

Twitter Web App : Recurring issue with Clubhouse chats is that they almost inevitably evolve into a discussion of "woke-ism" (understandably so given the ideology's cultural/political ascendance) but there's seldom anyone in the room who identifies enough with the ideology to give a defense of it

Twitter Web App : Big reason why bombing Syria is seen as presumptively non-controversial is because the US media largely just straight-up ignored the controversy surrounding the intelligence cited to justify the previous bombing thenation.com/article/world/…

Twitter Web App : Because this is POLITICO doing PR for the strike -- as usual there's no justification provided for why the "senior defense official" was granted anonymity to opine on how consummately measured the action was twitter.com/TheKhaldoon/st…
