During a joint hearing of the House Oversight Committee and the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, investigating the investigation into Hilary Clinton’s emails, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) in his opening remarks called out the unwillingness of the Republicans to exercise any oversight of the Trump administration, including the new policy of separating children from their parents when taken into custody at the border and placing them in child internment camps. He rhetorically asked “What country is that?!” and attempted to get the participation of his Republican colleagues in standing up to Trump and rejecting this new policy.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
