I love that their argument is “all these people are clearly corrupt and need to be investigated!”... I mean, my dudes, YOU chose them as YOUR senior staffers

"Artistic process" as cooking spaghetti, except your heart is the thing you throw out of your body to see if it sticks.

Between this and Goodlatte’s son, it’s a big day for family members taking a principled public stand against trash relatives.

Racism is clearly the central dynamic that has shaped trends in US immigration, but I also think that ppl underappreciate how an Irish farmer facing famine in the 19th century & a mother from Central America fleeing violence in the 21st century, both just want safety & security.

Moving into the 20th century, even after Congress implemented immigration quotas in an attempt to keep out Southern & Eastern Europeans with the 1921 Emergency Quota Act, people from these countries still continued to sneak into the US by the thousands upon thousands.

What’s fascinating to hear from many of the ppl who claim that their early ancestors “came here legally” is that it attempts to create a moral distinction where there isn’t one. Only 1% of ppl who showed up at Ellis Island were turned away. Mostly, if you showed up, you got in.

Chatted with about covering racists: -Every time a white supremacist agrees to talk, they're trying to weaponize your media platform for recruitment -If you print a white supremacist talking point in your newspaper, it doesn't refute or fact-check itself
