Historically, meta-narratives and images of fear have helped sustain the island’s colonial condition — fear that was instigated by the federal and local governing bodies toward pro-independence and socialist movements of the 20th century, fear of communism during the Cold War, and fear and doubt toward free determination and self-governance. This was all done in order for the governing elite to remain in power — until now.

Rejecting Politics of Fear, Marginalized Puerto Ricans Led the Uprising 👍

OSCAR OLIVER-DIDIER, TRUTHOUT

The uprising in Puerto Rico was unprecedented in its creation of a new visual language of protest based on those same marginalized groups of Puerto Ricans historically oppressed and reviled by a heteronormative and elitist colonial culture. The creative and performative nature of the uprising helped sustain its momentum and is now being used to call for a more radical transformation of Puerto Rico's political, economic and cultural framework.

Morning Joe Scarborough :o hits Donald Trump where it hurts 👍

Bill Palmer | 10:10 am EDT August 7, 2019
Palmer Report » Analysis

Yesterday a political ant hill got kicked over when Democratic Congressman Joaquin Castro tweeted the names and occupations of some of Donald Trump’s biggest donors – information which was already publicly available on the FEC website. Republicans tried to claim that Castro was somehow “doxxing” or “harassing” Trump’s donors.

“Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough of all people ended up stepping in as the voice of reason. He tweeted this about Donald Trump’s donors:   “If your business funds Trump’s campaign, then you are supporting white supremacy. Full stop. Look at his rallies. Listen to the chants of “Send her back!”Hear the calls of “Shoot them!” Your money funds that. Your business supports that. You are complicit.”

Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy made a series of false accusations about Joaquin Castro over the incident. Castro fiercely fired back. But it was once again Joe Scarborough who stomped all over McCarthy’s disingenuousness, firing off this missive at him: “This is such bullshit coming from a man who says NOTHING when Trump laughs at supporters who shout for the shooting of immigrants or engage in fascist chants to “send her back”. Nobody is being targeted. Even you know that ALL donations to presidents become public record.”

So there you have it. Joe Scarborough, a former Republican member of the House, now finds himself defending a House Democrat against dishonest attacks from the leader of the House Republicans. It’s a reminder that the GOP simply has no leadership, and no honesty, these days. What stands out here is that by helping Castro to humiliate Trump’s donors, Morning Joe is hitting Donald Trump where it hurts: in the wallet.
