The Case of E.S. v. Austria: What it Means for the Rights of Europeans

“ I have attempted to condense the rulings of the case to the best of my abilities, yet in doing so, the truth remains clear enough; a woman was convicted for insulting a religious doctrine. Now, of course that may not come as a terrible surprise to many, considering the absolute state of the EU at the moment, but when viewed under the light of scrutiny, it becomes even more disturbing what has been done.”

Bolsonaro Soars - How Jair achieved Victory Through Conservative Populism

It is sad that, for me, someone who has never voted in his life because I didn’t believe it would help, in a system I consider inherently corrupt and rigid, that we have reached this point.

Russian Bots and the Real NPCs: Non-Political Citizens and the Rise of Partisan Dehumanization

There is a spirit of tit-for-tat political dismissal, disregard, and disdain among both sides of the aisle for one another, which inevitably leads to each trying to use the other as a political scapegoat. Despite those defending the spurious allegations about the Kavanaugh case, there is certainly a more honest undercurrent among some Democrats and their supporters that the hearing and attempts to deny Kavanaugh were absolutely justified due to actions taken by Republicans to deny Obama’s appointment of Merrick Garland. And it would be foolish to imply that the Democrats aren’t justified in the spirit of their action, if one indeed believes the Republicans had the right to prevent Garland’s appointment; though certainly one can and indeed MUST question the manner in which such an attempt was made, and therein lies the rub.
