musings on the mainstream "press corps" and the american discourse

Services to resume: After unexpected delay, we've returned to our sprawling, award-winning campus.
On Monday, services resume.
The others are all racist.
Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!
Why are non-whites fleeing the Democratic Party?
Why are Republicans abandoning conservatism and embracing fascism?
San Francisco Chronicle tweeted:"Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis fired the latest volley this week in his feud with Gov. Gavin Newsom, calling San Francisco a “dumpster fire” and saying he doesn’t want Golden State businesses moving to Florida."Digby says:"Imagine the shit Newsom would take if he insulted Miami this way and said he didn’t want any Florida businesses to come to California.I am very, very sick of this game that everyone — on the left too — plays in which it’s fine for conservatives to insult half the country in truly degrading ways and yet if anyone says something insulting about Republicans (like calling some of them a basket of deplorables) they are vilified by all sides for failing to be properly empathetic and caring toward their fellow citizens.I don’t think acting in this juvenile manner is right. But when these hypocrites start calling for the smelling salts over alleged liberal misbehavior I don’t understand why this kind of thing isn’t thrown back in their faces and not just by the left or Democrats. The press should do it too. This is ridiculous."She is talking about Somerby too, in that list.
Is Digby not aware the the State of CA banned state travel to Florida last year? See "California added five more states, including Florida, to the list of places where state-funded travel is banned because of laws that discriminate against members of the LGBTQ community, the state attorney general announced Monday." https://www.npr.org/2021/06/29/1011253354/california-bans-state-travel-to-florida-and-4-other-states-lgbtqThat action is harsher than just some words.
Are consequences to actions even legal in a capitalist society?
Biden has lost the black vote.
