Claire Lehmann (surname – this comes up a bit in certain circles, that’s her husband’s name, she’s not of any small but notable ethnic provenance, and it doesn’t make much difference if she were), the editor of Quillette online serious magazine type journal, is damn good looking.
Moving on less than deftly from there, one of the most depressing and infuriating things at the moment is seeing so many people who you might think would know better falling head over heels for the approved hive mind narrative about the VIOLENT TERRORIST INSURRECTION MAGA COUP D’ETAT RAMPAGE blah SAVE DEMOCRACY stuff, and in “Censorship must be taken out of Big Tech’s hands” Lehmann comes through and disappoints there, starting off with:
On January 6, a violent mob inspired by US President Donald Trump and his claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him stormed the US Capitol, smashing windows, pummelling police and chanting “Hang Mike Pence”.
More than 50 police officers were hurt and one was killed in the storming. One officer fatally shot an unarmed female member of the mob.
You giant normie retard and/or shill.
At least she doesn’t use the usual “baseless” and “lies” words, but well you wouldn’t expect her to, she is actually above that, for now still. But you might suspect that she does believe that the election fraud claims are baseless and lies, whereas everybody knows, or should know, if they are not a moron, that the Democrat machine cheated in the states they needed to cheat in, or were free to cheat in, once it became clear that Florida and Ohio were easily going to Trump.
Hardly anyone in the Australian commentariat though seems to know this and maybe they are all just dumb, or are cowards, afraid of losing their reputations, or even employment, but people like this Lehmann woman who is supposed to be bold and contrarian shouldn’t be this dumb (or cowardly, if it’s that), it shouldn’t be possible without the laws of the universe being bent in some way impossible to understand.
By way of clarification or background, Lehmann is, loosely, part of what people called in a truly gay embarrassing way the “Intellectual Dark Web” (gayx2), but everyone understood that she was barely in it, just on the edges, only there because she’s editor of Quillette, because she doesn’t really have the wit and creative intelligence that you have to admit some of them do actually have, the Weinstein brothers and Dave Rubin for eg., or in Jordan Peterson’s case before he fried his brain with his precious meds (gay), had.

This is incredible journalist tier dishonesty, and journalist tier is the lowest you can go, it’s just shameful, as it paints the entire group of what were mostly just ordinary people as doing these things, they were all saying “Hang Mike Pence”, right, and only a giant retard or shill is going to sit there and type that out without vomiting in their own mouth/feeling ashamed/having an episode of unusual denseness/whoring out, take your pick.
Yes, there was some fighting with police and um, pummelling (gay), but most people were not hitting anyone, and yeah, chanting, like chanting “USA”, but that’s not scary like “hang Mike Pence”:
Horrific new video obtained by CNN shows a MAGA rioter (in white hat and backpack) grab a DC Metro officer and pull him down Capitol steps where he is stomped and beaten with an American flag pole.

See how this one change can make a big difference to the clause:
smashing windows, pummelling police and chanting “USA”, “USA”
smashing windows, pummelling police and singing the Star Spangled Banner
It’s just hard to understand what is going on here with all these people like Lehmann, if they are lying, scared, malevolent or just stupid, and the world has gone mad.
Here’s the rest of it, it is in a ponderous way an argument against censorship, so there’s that:
