You've likely heard that the Department of Justice is trying to get Dreamhost to provide the IP addresses (among other things!) of over a million folks who visited an anti-Trump site before his inauguration -- ostensibly to investigate the 200 or so folks who face felony rioting charges related to inauguration protests, but we all know why they really want the info. Hence both Demand Progress and Defending Rights and Dissent help you tell the Justice Department to abandon its attempt to spy on over a million American citizens. As I said earlier this week, it's more than a bit stunning that DOJ was able to get warrants from the D.C. Superior Court for this info, because it sure looks like a fishing expedition. It also looks like a President so insecure in his faith that he could execute the duties of his office that he tried to intimidate as many good Americans as he could. Most people would try to do a job so well that they'd have fewer opponents, but then Donald Trump ain't most people.
Meanwhile, the Associated Press has instructed its writers to avoid using the term "alt-right" to describe the Nazi wannabes who perpetrated violence in Charlottesville last week, but the rest of the "liberal" media still uses the term that Nazi wannabes concocted because they knew the words "Nazi" or "white supremacist" would give away their evil far more easily, so Moms Rising helps you tell mainstream media outlets to stop describing racists as either "alt-right" or "white nationalists." "White nationalists," of course, effaces their racism a bit, and implies that the nation they want to turn white is some nation other than our nation, whereas "alt-right" implies that these Nazi wannabes are somehow different from the ones that have plagued us forever. Well, they are different, in a way -- they whine incessantly about being criticized and being singled out and (in Richard Spencer's words, not mine!) needing a "safe space." It's hard out there for a pimp.
