HIGHLIGHTS OF STREAM:
Offense: “1. Brian Laundrie murders his girlfriend and the police are somehow unable to find him. He is able to evade capture and commits suicide.
2. Kyle Rittenhouse murders two people and is acquitted.
3. An awful video is released of Zac Stacy beating his ex. Arrested within 24 hours.”
Offense: “Even if his poll numbers are down, the potential to run against a hyper-flawed candidate like Trump may well keep him in the race. (Carter ran in 1980 despite approval numbers that had dropped to 28 percent in 1979)”
Offense: “Experts caution use of 'looting' in describing rash of Bay Area smash and grabs”
Offense: “if you’re at Thanksgiving and someone says their decision to not get vaccinated doesn’t affect anyone else, cut your slice of pie like this to demonstrate how that is very untrue”
Offense: “I'm introducing a bill that allows insurance providers to deny coverage for Covid related treatment to those who refuse to be vaccinated. Do your part or pay your own way. Freedom isn't free.”
Offense: “With holiday travel kicking into gear, think about how much safer we’d all feel if there was a vaccination mandate for travel. As families gather and the weather gets colder, we are in greater danger of another surge. More on this in my recent oped:”
Offense: “We apologize deeply for the email that was sent today. $14.92 was our average donation amount this week. It was an oversight on our part to not make the connection to a year of colonization, conquest, and genocide for Indigenous people, especially before Thanksgiving.”
Offense: “No one really wants this job, but millions of households may need their own: a Thanksgiving bouncer.
The cover charge? A negative COVID test, done ahead of arrival or outside the front door.”
Offense: “Turns out the Taliban is far more progressive and democratic than the Indian and Israeli governments.”
Offense: “My family will have an #emptychair at our Thanksgiving table this year. 🪑😞
Not because we lost someone to cancer or trauma. Or violence or war.
But because we lost someone to #misinformation.
Only the vaccinated may attend for safety. Many families will feel this pain. 😔”
Offense: The question in the Arbery verdict was whether the citizens arrest was justified, this is why it was felony murder
I dont understand how so many people are claiming it was the right verdict when this issue is so incredibly nuanced and complicated
It could easily get appealed”
Offense: “America is turned upside down. A Nearly all white Jury in Georgia returns a guilty verdict against three white men who chased down and killed a Black man. A Wisconsin jury and good old boy judge let a young white man armed with an illegal gun go free after killing two white boys.”
Offense: “Just bc input costs go up...that does NOT mean a business must raise prices to customers.
It is not automatic”
Offense: “Here's what we know so far on the sequence of events that led to the Waukesha tragedy caused by a SUV.”
Offense: “One graph which explains American anti-Australianism.
Offense: “I'm not familiar with #AllynWalker's personal wishes but... it's a sorry state of affairs when a professor's groundbreaking research is grossly misrepresented online and the end result is that the professor ends up leaving their post instead of being supported by their university”
Offense: “Thanksgiving is about gratitude. In 2021 it’s Biden supporters and liberals who seem grateful for America, for American institutions and ideals, for the American way of life. It’s Trumpists and today’s conservative movement who seem to be bitterly lacking in gratitude to America.”
Offense: “I don’t claim to know the truth of what crimes Ghislane Maxwell may have committed, but there are elements of her case which are very consistent with a political/PR/social media witch hunt…”
-Julie K Brown
Offense: “Unbelievable that there appears to be just ONE Black Rockette (hiding in the back). Omg. WTF. Horrible. 😣”
-The Washington Post
Offense: “Wild boar. Kelp salad. Crickets in your pie crust.
These are just a few things that may end up on Thanksgiving menus as climate change takes its toll on the planet. wapo.st/3FQgIKJ”
Offense: “Nah one of my aunties ovulating I can smell it lol”
Offense: “Kamala Harris reportedly spent over $500 on cookware in Parisian shop amid US economic uncertainty”
Offense: “Let me ask again: Why isn't the media reporting that oil companies chose to raise prices rather than increase supplies?”
Offense: “White privilege is refusing to get a proven vaccine while millions of Black and brown people around the world still can’t get access.”
Offense: “This is what ISIS think too, it doesn't make you special. twitter.com/ZubyMusic/stat…”
Offense: “When I went for my booster today, the pharmacy had a bowl full of lollipops. A lovely reminder of my childhood, when that was what you would get if you didn't cry. Except I wanted to cry because I was so grateful for science.”
-New York Times
Offense: “With 6,000 residents, a McDonald’s drive-through, bars and ball fields, the Guantánamo Bay Navy base is more than one big prison. It has the trappings of small-town America and the amenities of a college campus.”
Offense: “If the suicide vest fits…”
Offense: “The USA has no gun control at all.
You can buy a gun at a convenience store and carry it around with bullets in it.
They are the bottom of the barrel when comparing countries.
#canada #USA #cdnpoli #USPoli”
Offense: “Why should we have to pay to support the insanity of those not getting vaccinated? You think all these hospital stays are free? All of our insurance premiums are going up because of people acting like they are more important than everyone else.”
Offense: “Dude is just literally posting swastikas now”
Offense: “Readers love this fanfic so much, they’re printing out their own copies.”
Offense: “Pelosi changed House rules for @IlhanMN to allow her to wear her turban on the floor. First day, a Member said to me, “Four pounds of C-4 under that would wipe out half of Congress.”
Offense. “The First Gentlemen selected the holiday tree which arrived yesterday — Bob’s Trees in Hagaman has some of the finest trees in New York State!
Can’t wait to see all the decorations from @rockcenternyc all the way to the State Capitol 🎄”
Offense: “Waukesha will hold a moment of silence today, marking one week since a car drove through a city Christmas parade, killing six people and injuring scores of others.”

Offense: “Ok groomer”
-Kyla In The Burgh
Offense: “Sometimes I sit back and ponder how great America would actually be if a new COVID variant wiped out every single unvaccinated person in the US leaving only the caring, educated, selfless people with common fucking sense.”
Offense: ““Invasive species” is a nativist concept so ingrained in American consciousness that it’s taken on a life of its own, @mbolotnikova reports:”
-Esther Choo MD
Offense: “What if anti-racism were a foundational competency in medical school. And you didn’t move on if you failed it.”
Offense: “Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex-trafficking trial is set to be one of the biggest of the #MeToo era. But the jury may have to grapple with a unique question: is Maxwell herself a victim?”
Offense: “A brighter future in 2022!”
Offense: “Who the fuck cares if Chris Cuomo helped his brother??? I don’t know anybody who wouldn’t help family. The New York media needs to find a hobby. Their obsession with the entire Cuomo family is ridiculous. They can’t even call themselves journalists anymore. They are paparazzi.”
Offense: “For what it's worth, when Chris Cuomo addressed his actions on the air back in August, he said "this will be my final word on it," and he hasn't addressed the matter on TV since.”
Offense: “Engaging with the freedumb anti-vaxxers, is like trying to convince a person with a gun pointed at their own head not to shoot. It's time to walk away from the scene.”
Offense: “Words and phrases you may want to think twice about using ift.tt/3o4kmup #ottnews #ottawa”
Offense: “I think the most disturbing thing we’ve learned this year is that swing voters care much more about the price of gas than they do about whether fascism should be stopped.”
Offense: “It's so good to have a family in the White House again who understand how to decorate for Christmas.”
Offense: “Beginning today, we will not allow the sharing of private media, such as images or videos of private individuals without their consent. Publishing people's private info is also prohibited under the policy, as is threatening or incentivizing others to do so.”
Offense: “SHE MIGHT BE INNOCENT!”
Offense: “Getting a lot of hate now for advocating President Eisenhower's view on polio. How can they live with themselves. ?”
Offense: “Exactly right. Republicans get news from media that is always favorable to their party. Democrats get news from media that often portray Democrats harshly. nymag.com/intelligencer/…”
