ANNOUNCEMENT! I have officially joined the land of Substack. It was probably inevitable. But I'm very excited about the opportunities the platform affords. And most of all, looking forward to making insufferable people's heads explode mtracey.substack.com/p/offic…

Here's my full stream with @MattBinder of the "Majority Report" on whether it's evidence of a "creepy infatuation" -- as was alleged on a recent @SamSeder segment -- for me to cover COVID surveillance policies We both agreed it was a constructive convo 👍 redirect.invidious.io/j2DX6kYHbqA

In case you missed it (and I wouldn't blame you) here is what prompted the discussion -- the allegation that I'd only take an interest in covering extreme and arbitrary college COVID policies because of some "creepily" deep-seated psychological compulsion
I think if anyone's "creepily infatuated," it's these weirdo YouTube pundits who choose to spend their time constantly gossiping about me

After we dispelled with all the "meta" issues around my allegedly corrupt motivations, the substantive portion generated an instructive insight: @MattBinder rejects that "returning to normalcy" is a valid aspiration. I profoundly disagree. So that's a big philosophical difference

Another core disagreement is whether the goings-on at elite colleges -- and in this case, goings-on specifically related to COVID policy -- should be of any interest to a non-college audience. I say yes: these policies have major ramifications for the rest of society. He says no

One of my general philosophies has always been that within reason, I'm willing and eager to speak to perceived antagonists. Can't hurt to try
Replying to @mtracey
Honestly getting the guy to speak with you was kind of a surprise tbh. They usually just debunk strawman arguments to paint their opponents in a bad light. The annoying part is you have to publicly oppose their nonsense once in a while and not ignore it.

I’m deeply honored that multiple people have actually bid on this priceless “NFT.” It will surely go down in history

Now she's saying she "wept" on the floor of the House during a vote because she's "vulernable and endangered" Anyone remember the time Twitter erupted into fury against me when I (accurately) accused AOC of employing tactics of "emotional manipulation"? nypost.com/2021/02/04/how-ao…
.@AOC explains her “present” vote on boosting funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system - “To those who believe this reasoning is insufficient or cowardice - I understand.”

Don't know about "female Trump" -- but "thespian-politician" seems like a perfect new coinage for AOC
Replying to @mtracey
AOC is a thespian-politician, the female Trump.

AOC claims she broke out into tears during the Iron Dome vote yesterday because her "safety" was "at risk"? What the hell does that even mean? A person who's this emotionally volatile should really consider a different line of work
