To my lovely Indian Google+ friends (and those who know a lot about Indian politics)... What do you think about the article below? I don't know all the specifics about Narendra Modi, but from what I do know, he seems to have been the first spark of populism in the world in a very long time. Since then, other populist movements have manifested themselves. Do you see similarities between Trump and Modi? (See below for the article link.)

Dear Iran,

I believe you that you are developing missiles merely for self defense. However, you might convince more people of this if you stop writing "Israel Must Be Wiped Out" on your missiles.

"This is Milo? The Right Wing Bogeyman? The guy people are afraid to let speak in public? If he wasn't gay and didn't have an anime haircut nobody would know who he is. He's an unfiltered, articulate troll who revels in making people uncomfortable."

Kudos to Bill Maher, whom I always respect when it comes to free speech.

"On 76 million acres of federal refuges in Alaska, hunters will be permitted to enter dens where vulnerable bear families are hibernating and kill them if the resolution becomes law. They will also be able to shoot entire wolf families raising young pups if the Senate and President agree with the vote."

...On so-called "protected" land, no less. Some people, including a majority of people in the House of Representatives, have no shame. And this also shows us how protected "federal refuges" actually are.

Unbelievable. Is there not a shred of compassion in Republicans? I'm just sick thinking about these poor animals.

Luis Tovar: "Genesis Butler is a girl who at age 3 would not eat animals and at age 8 became a vegan on her own initiative. As her name suggests, she represents the genesis of a new human generation who wants to fundamentally change our relationship with other animals." (English Translation)

Genesis Butler es una niña que a los 3 años no quería comer animales y a los 8 años ya era vegana por iniciativa propia. Como bien indica su nombre, ella representa la génesis de una nueva generación humana que desea cambiar de manera fundamental nuestra relación con los demás animales.

He's very brave to be able to come out of the closet like that...and I'm not even being sarcastic.

"Personal friends of mine — men in their 60s who had been my longtime mentors — were coming at me. They wrote on Facebook that the story was “irresponsible” and “dangerous.” A dozen or so people unfriended me. A petition was circulated online, condemning the magazine and my article. All I had done was write a balanced story on an outspoken Trump supporter for a liberal, gay magazine, and now I was being attacked. I felt alienated and frightened."

"My best friend, with whom I typically hung out multiple times per week, was suddenly perpetually unavailable. Finally, on Christmas Eve, he sent me a long text, calling me a monster, asking where my heart and soul went, and saying that all our other friends are laughing at me."

"I realized that, for the first time in my adult life, I was outside of the liberal bubble and looking in. What I saw was ugly, lock step, incurious and mean-spirited."

"It used to be that if you were a gay, educated atheist living in New York, you had no choice but to be liberal. But as I met more Trump supporters with whom I was able to have engaging, civil discussions about issues that impact us all, I realized that I like these people — even if I have some issues with Trump himself. For example, I don’t like his travel ban or the cabinet choices he’s made. But I finally had to admit to myself that I am closer to the right than where the left is today. And, yes, just three months ago, I voted for Hillary Clinton."

Gaza is where the Israeli unilaterally pulled out of and pulled all of their settlers out of. That was the first step to peace. They said, "Hey, we got rid of all Israelis on any land in Gaza. I'm sure they will appreciate the gesture!" Now you might be able to see why Israel is not so fond of doing that again in other areas.

"Israel has arrested Sinwar three times — in 1982, 1985 and 1988, when he was sentenced to multiple life terms for his role as the mastermind in the abduction and killing of two Israeli soldiers. He served 22 years."

"Unlike the Palestinian Authority, which controls the West Bank, Hamas does not believe in compromise with Israel and does not recognize the state. Its charter declares that 'jihad is the only answer.'"

"Israel says Hamas is concentrating on rebuilding its supply of mortars and rockets and digging bunkers and attack tunnels in preparation for another war that many see as almost inevitable."

Virtually drop a Tsar Bomba on a place you know to see just how widespread the destruction of nuclear weapons can be. The outer radius is that of third-degree burns over any exposed skin (which are deadly if not promptly treated) so imagine a much wider radium for first- and second- degree burns. Also check "Casualties" and "Nuclear fallout" in the "Other effects" section if you want even more information.

Freedom of speech is dying everywhere, but this example in Canada is quite notable. House Motion 103 (which will most likely be passed - unanimously - on February 16th after being tabled by MP Iqra Khalid) asks for the government to study ways to "eliminate" Islamophobia, which as we know is often as simple as "valid criticism of Islam". Its inspiration, E-411, contains the language:

“Recently an infinitesimally small number of extremist individuals have conducted terrorist activities while claiming to speak for the religion of Islam. Their actions have been used as a pretext for a notable rise of anti-Muslim sentiments in Canada."

Yet nobody in power has the intelligence and/or courage to say what I am writing below:

Recently an infinitesimally small proportion of an infinitesimally small number of extremist individuals have conducted terrorist activities while claiming to speak for Islamophobes. Their actions have been used as a pretext for a notable rise of anti-free-speech sentiments in Canada.
