Read this thread and see how ugly it gets and how fast. This is why there's little reporting, little attention, and little real effort to get rid of these outlets. Because the tactics of terrorists are real and terrifying. Bravo, @juliacarriew. We stand with you. https://twitter.com/juliacarriew/status/1198012062011494400

In light of the reports about a secret dinner featuring Mark Zuckerberg, Peter Thiel, and Pres. Trump, I'd like to refer you back to April 2018, when Sen. Cantwell asked Zuck about Thiel and Palantir and he was like, "Palan-who? I barely know the Thiel!" https://slate.com/technology/2018/04/watch-zuckerberg-struggle-to-answer-sharp-uncomfortable-questions-about-peter-thiels-creepy-company.html

I can't wait to see all the Mad Max wannabes driving their steampunk, Blade Runner inspired, armor-plated Cybertrucks up and down 280 in their Allbirds.
