How about being mad that they're using changing a character's skin colour to deflect criticism that they are remaking a story instead of telling a new one, and doing a worse job than the original? Disney's game is "you have to like this, its a <fill in the blank demographic> lead character; if you complain that the film is crap, you're a racist, no matter how bad the film actually is." That's what they did with Star Wars, its what they're doing with the remade Disney classics, and its what they're doing to the MCU: make generic crap films and rely on 'representation' as a screen to deflect criticism.

Well, the "green movement" has very little to do with the environment, so I guess that makes sense.

That’s why the standard for false accusation needs to not be ‘the original accusation was unprovable.’ instead, the incorrect/false accusation has to be provably fraudulent or malicious.

She was let go from the Green Party in the UK after running for office when it turned out she hired her father a a campaign manager after he had been charged with raping and torturing a 10 year old girl (he subsequently was convicted). She then ran for the Lib Dems, and was kicked out of the party after her and her partner’s child sex fantasies were revealed on Twitter (although both her and her partner claim that the account was hacked and the posts fake, which is quite possible). Finally, a lot of people question how she lived in the same house as her father when he was raping and torturing the 10 year old and yet she claimed she knew nothing about it.

Also, it’s fun to realize that the width is in millimeters, and the wheel diameter is in inches... imperial-metric fusion

Also, the point shouldn't be to take away from the rich, it should be to make the poor richer. Warren's plans don't actually address that in a real way.
