      Have to say, milk crate challenges aren’t a smart thing at all! There’s no room at hospitals for self-inflicted wounds. I did giggle @ Snoop’s commentary! 😂😏😜

    Afghan Evacuees Subject To Multiple Health Screenings, Including For Covid

    “Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby describes how medical screenings are incorporated
    into the stages of resettlement of Afghan refugees, Including Covid screening
    of everyone who is brought to the United States.”

    Lawrence O’Donnell:
    “No one so far is shooting at the American military as they do what is realistically possible in the current evacuation. And that is because the Biden State Department has been negotiating with the Taliban about the evacuation.”

    (Video)
    Jake Sullivan, National Security Advisor:
    “We are engaging with the Taliban. Consulting with the Taliban on every aspect of what’s happening in Kabul
    right now. On what’s happening at the airport. On how we need to ensure that there is facilitated passage to the airport for American citizens, SIVs, third-country nationals, and so forth.”

    O’Donnell:
    “That is something we did not do and could not do during the evacuation of Vietnam.’

    Sullivan:
    “In the last 24 hours alone, 28 U.S. military flights have evacuated approximately 10,400 people from Kabul.
    In addition, 61 coalition aircraft have evacuated approximately 5,900 additional people.
    That is more than 16,000 people in 24 hours, and the flights are continuing hour by hour as we speak.”

    “With 53,000 people already evacuated,
    the Biden Administration and the American military continue tonight,
    as they did last week, to manage the most successful evacuation from a war that America lost.

    And the Washington press corps continues to portray that evacuation as a debacle.
    That is because most of them, if not all of them, were not old enough or not yet born the first time the United States lost a much bigger foreign war. And fled that country while being shot at by the people the United States then called the enemy. And who the United States now treats as one of its friends and trading partners in Asia.”

    Best wishes to Rev. Jesse Jackson and Jacqueline Jackson for their recovery from Covid-19 !!!

    NPR: “Jesse Jackson…received his first dose in January during a publicized event as he urged others
    to receive the inoculation as soon as possible. The two are being treated at Northwestern Memorial Hospital
    in Chicago.”

    Joy Reid:
    “Now the anti-vaxxers they seem to have a thing for death and home remedies,
    claiming the new COVID cure is livestock de-wormer.
    Yes that`s right. A drug bought at a feed store meant to prevent parasites in pigs and cows and such,
    leading in an uptick in calls to poison control. This is a group ingesting medicine for an animal that weighs a ton or more than humans do. So we get it. Talking sense into some of them is tough.”

    “Like somebody described it today as Russian roulette – maybe you will live, maybe you will recover,
    maybe you will get long COVID, maybe you will die.”

    Jeff Scarlett, Contributing Editor, Vanity Fair,
    to Chris Hayes:

    “While we focus on Trump, on DeSantis, on Greg Abbott, we focus on these villains,
    we have to recognize that this kind of anti-vaccination hysteria has deep historical roots in the right.
    It goes back to the 19th century where you start encountering terms like medical tyranny, medical liberty, natural immunity. And then it`s conflated with ‘whiteness’.

    This idea that white people somehow through their good genes, ‘very good genes’ as Trump would put it,
    have that immunity.

    So Trump, DeSantis, Abbott, all these folks are pulling on a right-wing populist and a religious thread in American life and pulling it horribly into the present. They didn`t invent it. They exploited it.”

  68. August 24, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    “Modern fascism’s interests are being represented in government by rightwing populists”

    Paul Mason:
    “Hannah Arendt described fascism as the temporary alliance of the elite and the mob,
    and the only thing that ever defeated that was the temporary alliance of the centre and the left –
    and that’s what we need.
    We need a better institutional response,
    meaning anti-fascist laws of the kind that Germany has,
    including official state surveillance of non-violent groups that are headed towards fascism.
    But deeper than all of that, we need to create and hold on to an anti-fascist ethos.
    There is now an overt and legitimised hostility to anti-fascism, because Trump has redefined what it is..”

    MSNBC Columnist Calls on Biden to Defund States That Restrict Voting Rights

    “When Republicans don’t like what a state or local government is doing — from Covid-19-related mask mandates to teaching critical race theory in schools — they have been known to cut off funding, or at least to threaten to do so. It’s time Democrats do the same for voting rights, which are the lifeblood of our republic…” (Dean Obeidallah)
