Oberlin College Students Erect Memorial to Palestinian Islamic Jihad Terrorists

... does not accord with casualty tolls shared by international observers and the involved parties, including those in the Gaza Strip, which largely acknowledge that a majority of fatalities were members of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, an Iranian-backed terrorist organization that is blacklisted by the United States, European Union, and others.

I didn't intend to imply that I agreed with the tweet (I didn't read it), just wanted to share the video. I don't know about banning masks and "criminalizing" Antifa, but governments have a responsibility to protect their citizens. Antifa, especially in Portland, is blocking streets, intimidating people, and assaulting them.
Citizen fights back.
There's this very disturbing set of studies where about half the articles printed in Science and Nature magazines, the two leading publications, involved experiments that could not be repeated by anybody.

An NPR reporter used "Latinx" as if it's in the dictionary and not a totally made-up word to satisfy the P.C. police.
If you can't say Latino, maybe use Latin.

How is that pronounced out loud? Does it sound like "lynx" or like "DirectX"?

The latter. Latin-ex. I had wondered myself until yesterday, only having seen this aberration in written form.

And what exactly is the meaning of Latinx vs Latino? And why can't you say Latino? Is that now the "L" word or something? Jeez, I can't keep up with all of the PC nonsense. :P

Oh, that's easy. "Latino" is obviously sexist.

Techno gets a cigar O0

In Spanish and other Latin-derived languages, an "-a" suffix indicates the feminine. A group consisting entirely of Hispanic women are said to be "Latina".

When there's at least one man in a group, it goes to the default "Latino".

This means that there isn't a way to describe a group entirely comprised of men, but there is for women. However, this is cast as sexism in that a single man changes the sex of the entire group to the masculine.

"Latinx" apparently is the PC way to say "Latin of any sex".
