Mayor Bowser just got pushed to her left, helped along by a Democratic Socialist recently winning a seat on the District Council over Bowser’s preferred corporate-friendly stooge.
I’m not going to exaggerate the clout or presence of leftie insurgents – but every small win helps.
GEORGE FLOYD WAS CENSORED. Shortly after he was murdered, a video he had made of himself circulated widely on the Internet. Probably the most common picture of him is a still shot from this video.
I saw this video on The Hill, not knowing that it was George Floyd himself speaking. I went back to look for it, and it is gone.
Nothing I do to search for this video brings it up, but it obviously does, or did, exist.
When I do an Internet search on “George Floyd was censored,” it says there are no search results, try it without quotes. When I try it without quotes I only see results about Trump’s video being taken off Twitter.
Thanks for also including the concerns about the mayor’s prior actions on police brutality.
I do like the large letters. Hopefully any filming of protests now moves that message into the corporate media – and that they don’t PhotoShop it out!
Definitely, along with the name change of the plaza, a nice symbolic gesture that promises substance to follow. Let’s hope she comes thru.
I think that Malcom X would appreciate what the mayor did too.If the mayor gets a rage attack from Trump—she should tweet back what Malcom X said:
“That’s not a chip on my shoulder—that’s your foot on my neck.”,")
Tell me more about Bowser’s political rise and I may be less inclined to suggest you take a dive into your namesake.
With an offer like that…no.
What a cop out!

Look things up on your own and make your requests more politely.
