What does this even mean?
The Sami are the only indigenous people in the EU and some of their languages are on the brink of extinction.
Sara Wesslin is one of only two journalists in the world broadcasting in Skolt Sami https://t.co/tdTUE2vBZy
You could probably claim that Spaniards are not indigenous to Europe because they mixed with Muslims “too much” (which is not an argument I support, obviously) but how are Germans or Belgians or whoever else less indigenous to Europe than the Sami?
The tweet is by the BBC.
Anti-Zelensky Ukrainians are just as unhinged as anti-Trumpers in the US. Everything the guy does, no matter how trivial or innocent provokes the most insane interpretations. Today I read an article about Zelensky’s New Year speech, and it was utterly ridiculous. I didn’t watch the speech because I don’t enjoy looking at the guy but I’m pretty certain he didn’t promise to hand Ukraine over to Putin immediately.
I prefer Americans to Canadians because they are intense, just like we are intense in Ukraine. But there is a point after which intensity gets ridiculous.
Nothing demonstrates that people stuffed themselves with too much food over the holidays than the endless braying of “WAR!!!” on social media.
I hope people take something for better digestion and calm the ef down. The social media became downright unreadable.
Thomas Fazi is a socialist journalist whose latest book Reclaiming the State makes a progressive (in a good sense of the word) case for national sovereignty.
Here is a couple of quotes from his Twitter (and gosh, it’s such a shame that younger journalists force people to sift through trash heaps of Twitter to find what they’re saying):
None of this is new. This stuff has been discussed by every major thinker for three decades. But nobody knows about them. Instead, everybody has heard the dumb-as-doorknobs Ocasios of this world screech “it’s fascusmuhhh.”
Fazi tweets at @battleforeurope and I highly recommend the whole thread.
