Carlson inverts reality of demographic change in Mountain West to promote ‘replacement theory’

Tucker Carlson has become a relentless promoter of his twisted-bowtie version of the white nationalist “replacement theory” of immigration—namely, that Democrats are deliberately opening the national gates to a floodtide of brown immigrants whose primary purpose is to displace and dispossess Republican white voters. With the nodding approval of Fox News executives, Carlson has been repeating the theory, doubling down and characterizing immigration itself as “the most radical possible attack on the core premise of democracy.” If you pay close attention to these rants, a pattern emerges: Carlson bloviates a lot of important-sounding words, but he almost never actually illustrates his claims with any evidence supporting them. When he actually does so, a little careful examination reveals the evidence actually to be not just ephemera, but classic right-wing up-is-down inversion of reality on its head, revealing his argument for the bad-faith charade in which he specializes. Case in point: Carlson’s tale of immigration in the Mountain West states.

Health care inequality means that my nuisance would be someone else's disaster

Sometimes when the U.S. health care system works for you, it becomes all the more visible how horribly it doesn’t work for so many people.  In late April 2020, I got a raging case of ophthalmic shingles. I wrote about it a month later, essentially declaring case closed—I was lucky to have had care right when I needed it, and had avoided permanent vision damage. Then, a month or two later, I developed pain in my right eye again, and went back to the doctor. And then I went back, and back, and back, and back. Nearly 14 months after I developed shingles, I am again on steroid eye drops for continuing problems in my eye. I have been repeatedly on and off of antiviral pills. By my count, I have been to the ophthalmologist 13 times, most of those visits to a cornea specialist. I have never paid more than a $20 copay for each visit and $15 or so for a prescription because Daily Kos provides me with good health coverage. But think about how many people in this country don’t have that—either they don’t have insurance, or they don’t have the kind of insurance that would allow them to go to a specialist again and again and again. Or they don’t have the income to shrug off a $20 copay as insignificant. Or they’re someone for whom medical appointments mean unpaid time off work. If I didn’t have all of these things, I would likely have permanent damage to my right eye.

Traditional Chinese Characters and Motifs Cover Ming Lu’s Porcelain Busts and Ducks

Artist Ming Lu melds multiple facets associated with Chinese culture in her delicate blue-and-white porcelain works. She utilizes traditional craft techniques to sculpt ubiquitous cultural symbols often found throughout the streets of Chinatown, encompassing both the Berlin-based artist’s broad cultural connections to her native country and more personal interactions. In the three busts that comprise “Dialogue,” for example, Ming Lu transcribes conversations with her partner in calligraphic script. Titled “Reason,” “Trick,” and “Reaching a Station We’ll Never Reach,” the self-portraits embody a contemporary change in situation and perspective through a classic medium. More

Herds of Life-Sized Elephants Roam Through London’s Parks for a Global Conservation Project

Sixty migrating elephants pass between Piccadilly and Buckingham Palace in London’s Green Park in one of nine herds roaming throughout the city. The lumbering creatures are part of an ongoing collaboration between two nonprofits, CoExistence and Elephant Family, that explores how humans can better live alongside animals and the larger ecosystem through imaginative public art projects. As its name suggests, CoExistence’s aim is to identify mutually beneficial modes of living considering that within the last century, the balance between world population and wilderness has shifted considerably: in 1937, 66 percent of global environments were intact with 2.3 billion people on Earth.
