Richard M. Nixon on Twitter: "This is one of the better examples of how he actually spoke. You get the language of the pulpit but also the coolness of the pastor in the front room, the teacher and politician. It is what used to be called rhetoric. https:/
Amazing quote, on how at the time of the Emancipation Proclamation, white settlers were getting huge land giveaways but newly freed black folks got nothing: "It's a cruel jest to say to a bootless man that he ought to lift himself by his own bootstraps."

The Meaning of Allahu Akbar | Hazlitt
This may be one of the best things I've ever read

When my father thinks he looks great in his three-piece suit with a dash of discounted Kouros on, he grins in the mirror and says “Allahu Akbar” to himself, popping his collar. Indeed, God is great, for God made it possible for papa to own an Yves Saint Laurent fragrance for $54.49.

Winnipeggers react after Trudeau apologizes for brownface photo | CBC News
omg this hit me right in the feels

Shahina Siddiqui, executive director of Winnipeg's Islamic Social Services Association, said there are more pressing things to focus on — especially in the midst of a federal election.

"There are many more important issues facing our country right now," Siddiqui said, adding that First Nations left without access to clean drinking water in northern Manitoba, or women banned from wearing hijabs to work under Bill 21 in Quebec, don't get nearly as much attention.

Johnson rules out Farage alliance in final Tory hustings | Politics News | Sky News
oh wow two vastly different choices facing the UK here

Boris Johnson says Donald Trump used "unacceptable" language when he told four US congresswomen to "go back" to the "broken and crime infested places from which they came". But he again declined to condemn the remarks as racist.

Jeremy Hunt reiterates his stance that Donald Trump used "unacceptable" language when he told four US congresswomen to "go back" to the "broken and crime infested places from which they came". He also explains why he will not brand them as racist. "The words I use need to be calibrated in a way that doesn't do lasting damage to that relationship (between the US and UK)," he says.

Dude you could be waiting a long damn time

Jeremy Hunt says he will not call a general election until more young people back the Conservative Party.

Funny that's not what your demographic figures say, they say the UK has a 99% literacy rate

Jeremy Hunt wants to make education another of his priorities, notably increasing the number of children who leave school able to read and write. He says 25% of children still leave school unable to read and write.

Also: loooool oh yeah dude that'll happen

Jeremy Hunt is listing his priorities should he become prime minister, starting with ensuring Britain has the most "pro-business economy in Europe" by becoming "the next Silicon Valley". "When it comes to those trade negotiations I want Europe to need us every bit as much as we need them," he says.
