    Anyone heard of these people? I tuned in to Finebaum for a half hour today for the first time in months. Some guy on there was talking about the brilliant doctor experts highlighted on Breitbart having some conference in DC about the real facts of the pandemic. "American doctors are holding a “White Coat Summit” on Capitol Hill Monday to address what they call “a massive disinformation campaign” surrounding the Chinese coronavirus to which “American life has fallen casualty.” They call themselves the "American Frontline Doctors" but I can't find anything about them anywhere.

    Even taken that way the problem at its root is likely not toxic masculinity in a vacuum.

    I googled a few of the people they had listed as leaders of the summit and didn't see any doctors I would think of as frontline?

    If you're looking for bloggers or ophthalmologists, however, they've got you covered.

    I was going to respond earlier "I don't think she meant to say *this* stupid thing, I think she meant to say *that* stupid thing. Regardless, there's no context on this topic where it matters that there are no women soldiers. Honestly, with how sexist our society is, any woman that would be included with "Trumps secret federal police" would probably have to be twice as fascist and cruel as the men. So maybe it's a good thing that none of them are women.

    Where does causality fall into your thesis?

  16. #116
    You mean symbolic problems causing material crises?

    Case by case basis.

    They voted down everything. Not surprising, but still very frustrating. This generation of Democratic leadership is less than hopeless - they're obstructionist , oblivious to voter preferences, and they absolutely have to be overcome in order for the party to adopt anything mildly progressive. Feeling very resentful, I have a lot less patience to talk about politics today.

    Not sure how that could be if Denis McDonough, who served as former President Barack Obama's chief of staff, called it the "boldest Democratic platform in American history."
