I generally shy away from, “Well if you *really* cared about X, you would have complained about Y,” argumentation. Generally all it betrays is that the person speaking hasn’t been listening to the people they are vilifying. Perfect example: When MRAs claim feminists don’t care about men because they haven’t been speaking up about so-called men’s issues.
And yet, if the alt right were principled free speech defenders they’d have cried as loudly about the RNC porn ban as the Twitter Milo ban. If the alt right were principled freedom of association defenders they’d support the Twitter Milo ban. In truth their principles are hate, discrimination, and harassment.

“The Crime Control Act of 1994 asked the FBI to annually compile and publish data about the use of police force in all instances so that the country could keep track of trends of police violence, identify problematic precincts, or catch enforcement bias. But union representatives of law enforcement agencies successfully lobbied the feds to make reporting optional. So most departments now simply plead poverty and refuse to comply.”
As a followup to Monday’s newsletter, none other than the BBC is saying that polyamorous relationships may be the future of love.
