tl;dr: A Green party that isn't also a socialist party isn't really a green party Radikale Klarheit? Von wegen. Diffuse Indifferenz ist ein Wesensmerkmal der Grünen geworden. Jeder soll sich bei ihnen wohlfühlen. via

So have the video. And they’re currently debating whether to use it on teatime bulletin. Most Conservative party members don’t read & aren’t on Twitter. They will literally never see it unless it’s on BBC.

No, you deliberately looked away. This man's failures and even active misdirection are one of the reasons why people still associate Germany with Nazism, and why Nazi violence is still tolerated here. Maaßen: "Wir haben nichts verschlafen"

You're right, but I did rewatch Collateral (2004) recently. Tom Cruise makes an excellent existentialist assassin.

Lots of good talk from Merkel and her government this week about fighting the rise of Nazism. So how come Exit initiatives are underfunded and under threat? Initiative für Neonazi-Aussteiger: Droht Exit-Deutschland jetzt das Aus? via

New Megacan out! It's our 1st birthday, so we sum up a year of German politics while pickling our livers with some dodgy whisky mixes: What goes best with cola? Jack Daniel's, Johnnie Walker, or ... er ... George Washington?

Zwischen Habeck und Lindner liegt nicht viel. Denn die Grünen vergessen beim Kampf fürs Klima soziale Fragen und Solidarität mit Marginalisierten. via

I don't think Biden has any hope of beating Trump. If I were Dem I'd vote for Warren but then I voted for DiEM25 so obviously I'm not on the same page as most people.
