I went back to school yesterday to start teaching at high school again.
The class sizes were between 2-8 students. The thing I noticed about these students was how withdrawn a lot of them were, worrying!
Numerous times during the day I was told how bad President Trump was, I saw there was an video sent out to the students, with the title "how Trump is failing America".
A clear case of Trump Derangement Syndrome (especially with everything else going on).
Trouble is I'm not in America, I'm in the UK.
The idea that the main focus for "blame", for the ills of the world is one person. Even from a distance of thousands of miles, just goes to show how hard the "Trump bad" narrative is being pushed over here.
I find it deeply worrying that he is being demonised in such a way.
The mass media manipulation of a population is really something to behold.
Facebook has upheld Donald Trump’s suspension but will revisit the decision in six months. (Ridiculous for many reasons including that more coordination for January 6th happened on Facebook than anywhere else...including Parler.)
Curious if you guys are even on Facebook anymore. I see lots of messages from people who have deleted it or just don’t use it. Are there any features that you miss which we should incorporate here on Locals?
A big welcome to all the new folks who joined the community today! (And yes I’ll be signing those cards and mailing them out to you ASAP!)
While we do plenty of politics and culture around here it’s also a lot of pet and food pics. And since we have so many new members today it seems like a good time to start a pet pic thread. Here’s Clyde...now everyone introduce your furry friends!
