@byroncclark Everytime I hear Telegram posters promises that communism is 'just around the corner' under the great leadership of Comrade Jacinda I feel let down when it never arrives. What is up with the right wing constantly threatening us with a good time?

Terrorism 

Mass shooting in USA, deliberately targeting Black people. The shooter said he was inspired by the Christchurch mosque shooter. It's so so important for us Pākehā to push back against racism.

In case you were still wondering, no, the islamist despot of Turkey, Erdoğan, has never been (and is not) your ally.

I may have been born Turkish but my solidarity is with the Kurds and their struggle for an independent, democratic, and egalitarian society. Sweden and Finland should be applauded for their support.

Very cool that American Starbucks employees are orgaising themselves but I remember that starbucks uses incarcerated slave labour in the US and supply chains for coffee in general are rife with slavery and severe exploitation. I hope that the solidarity extends beyond the stores.

I wish humans could hibernate. I would be cool with fattening up each autumn and then spending winter in a cosy burrow.

Make no mistake about it, conservatives want to control the narrative.

They want all the social media sites to pander to them. They want their shitty views normalized within the general public.

Why? Because they're not even trying to hide the fact that they're a cult.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist but does seem to me that if you wanted to maintain the status quo more or less then running constant polls rather than investing resources in creating productive discourse and debate wouldn't be a bad strategy.

M66, (aka NGC 3627), an intermediate spiral galaxy in the southern, equatorial half of Leo. Made with FITS from Hubble Proposal Id 15654, with wavelengths 814, 555, 336 and 275.

My need for coffee and croissants eventually overruled the cat ☕️ 🥐

Always so much pussyfooting around with ‘partners’ and developers to get houses built, no wonder Kāinga Ora projects are always behind. The government should just buy land and resource itself to build houses directly.
