Pregnant New Zealand journalist stranded by quarantine rules says she turned to Taliban

I don't know why but I'm willing to assume that this woman is a batshit crazy attention seeker who is willing to place her own life as well as the life of her unborn child at risk just to make a point about New Zealand red tape.

Whoopi Goldberg slammed for saying Holocaust not about race



The answer to the perennial question of whether the US race discourse can get any more essentialist and myopic is a resounding yes it can and it does, every day

Be nice and explain what essentialism is and how it applies to this situation so that the plebs can learn something. I tired googling but it didn't help.

Also, isn't being Jewish an ethnicity rather than a race?

In fairness to Whoopi, it wasn't like she was saying the Holocaust never happened. In fact she called it absolute evil. I think she missed the point that the Jews consider themselves to be a race; that's where she really messed up.

Who ****ing cares what some empty-headed liberal said on The View? And can you ever just say what you mean? I can't figure out if your obtuse use of the English language is honest pseudo-intellectualism or defensive crypticness.

I think he expresses himself clearly for someone with his education background and interests, the problem is nobody else understands his references. He needs to dumb it down for us...

No the lack of standardization in wokeness is the issue. Also the standardization in wokeness.
