NM Civil Guard made conflicting claims to different outlets on last month's fascist shooting in ABQ. Were they protecting or detaining the shooter? @npratc left and @ABQJournal right. Either way, journalists must not take fascists at their word.2
Why we chose not to air an @NPR piece about the New Mexico Civil Guard, and to instead run an interview with a Native American scholar about media coverage of the militia group + context about White vigilante violence in NM... a thread.
John Burnett of @NPR refused to interview Native leaders on statue removal. They wanted to talk over Skype b/c of high rates of COVID-19 infection in their communities. Instead, he gets a neo-Nazi to cry about how hard it is being a racist. No joke. https://www.npr.org/2020/07/06/886586653/new-mexico-leaders-to-militia-if-you-want-to-help-community-stop-showing-up-arme2
I’ve found most D&D players take coronavirus seriously. We know two things from experience:
(A) a 2% risk is *not* as low as it sounds.
(B) no matter how high your Constitution score, you can *always* fail your saving throw.
