The matter of "handing over the diplomat" has completely over-shadowed Trump's real stupidity:
He thought it was a "fabulous idea" to give intelligence operatives from Putin's mafia access to US Intelligence Community resources and facilities.

Trump is insane. Insane. Insane.

Zuckerburg in the news just no, on the topic of to take down or not to take down certain material.

My question:
If I mount a campaign declaring that those who propagate and perpetuate use of The Lord's Prayer are actively sabotaging The Republic acting as 5th column for The Vatican, and go so far as to proclaim that those people are //Enemies of the People// ... am I indulging in #HateSpeech?

I would love to say yes. But ... something like civic decency says not. (What comes to mind: shouting *"Fire!" in a packed auditorium is definitely wrong, and perhaps malicious, so maybe hate-filled by intention, but ... something about employing the apparatus of authority and state power causes me to "hang fire".

p.s. first contribution here. I hope I haven't booted it.

I'm not sure ... I think that this is actually using techniques / designs / plans / methods that I sketched out fully late 1990s. (Back when I was using VRML in Dr. Fentress' ethology lab at Dalhousie Univeristy.)

While at Infocomm 2018, I checked in with Panasonic and the cool things they were doing at the booth. I saw an emmersive gaming projection unit, a video wall with interaction, their education area – containing digital whiteboards and video systems to…

Say you decided to clash with some white supremacist nutter who was hollaring about how "The holocaust never happened!" ...
How long would it take for you to find counter-arguments that were at least credible? plain vanilla plausible?
If you went looking ... I mean truly leaning into it ... could you find those? I mean, given the reality you live, would those counter-arguments be surfaced? would your efforts produce what you (and we) wanted?

Interesting that ... seems to me, having read it through again ... the article actually says nothing about the actual contents of the resolution.

Long/Short: 5th column of Putin's mafia would happily propagate such as this i.e. "Congress is bipartisan in support of Russian hacking!"
Treasonous Senate Republicans Block Resolution Supporting The Intelligence Community On Russia: Senate Majority Whip Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) blocked a bipartisan resolution of support for the intelligence community on the Russia scandal.

Addendum: Folk are starting to use "caveat" as an active verb, attempting to cope with Trump's sophistry.

I came up with this to try to nail down a basic point:
^ "Putin is responsible, because he's head of the country."
^ "Putin individual is to held to account for this. The blame has to be on him because it's him who approves and controls and directs they cyber attacks against our infrastructure."

I think those two signal the character of two different persons.
