Newly elected Muslim official in Michigan received over a thousand threats in November

After two Michigan Republican officials from the Wayne County Board of Canvassers claimed they were doxxed and threatened following a meeting regarding the certification of local elections, a Wayne State University vice president and local Muslim state representative found themselves subject to violent attacks online. Board chair Monica Palmer and member William Hartmann falsely alleged that Democratic Rep. Abraham Aiyash and Ned Staebler, a Wayne State vice president, threatened them online, resulting in the two being victim to not only doxxing but online harassment, BridgeDetroit reported. “I was in shock. I didn’t even know what doxxing meant,” Aiyash told BridgeDetroit. Doxxing refers to private information being shared on digital platforms with the intent of harming individuals. Not only was Aiyash’s history of employment shared online, but so was his credit report, Social Security number, and even the type of car he drives. According to the newly elected Yemeni-Muslim official, Palmer’s accusations led to more than 1,000 threatening calls and messages using language like ‘‘You’re gonna pay,’ ‘Muslim pig,’ ‘Terrorist,’ ‘Go back to your country,’ and ‘We’re watching you.’”

Kendole Joseph, father of 2, beaten and tasered to death by police: Judge denies cops immunity

Kendole Joseph, father of 2, beaten and tasered to death by police: Judge denies cops immunity

Kendole Joseph was 27 years old when he died. He spent two days in the hospital after being arrested by no less than 12 Gretna, Louisiana, police officers on Feb. 7, 2017. He was the father of two children. While the Jefferson Parish coroner declined to classify the manner of Jospeh’s death, a mountain of evidence told the story of a man having a mental health crisis who “endured twenty-six blunt-force injuries to his face, chest, back, extremities, scrotum, and testes” at the hands of Gretna police officers. Joseph had committed no crime and was not a suspect in a crime. He was unarmed, and while he attempted to hide in plain site from police, he did not resist arrest according to witnesses, as well as video footage of the tragic event. On Nov. 20, Fifth Circuit Judge Don Willett, wrote an opinion denying the officers named in a lawsuit brought by the Joseph family “qualified immunity.” As Techdirt points out, the Fifth Circuit has become known for not making decisions against officers in qualified immunity cases, and so this decision is a very important one, as Willett explains that “For those in positions of public trust—from Commanders in Chief (who must “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed” ) to City of Gretna Police Officers (who “vow to protect life and property while safeguarding constitutional guarantees”)—proportional responses are good policy. We expect those charged with executing and enforcing our laws to take measured actions that ascend in severity only as circumstances require. A disproportionate response is unreasonable. And if it describes physical force inflicted by a police officer, it is unconstitutional.”

Loeffler and Perdue stick with McConnell, put their stock portfolios ahead of suffering Georgians

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is still holding the nation hostage, after more than six months, in exchange for a huge corporate bailout. He is steadfastly refusing adequate assistance to state and local governments, to the unemployed, to the hungry, to everyone while insisting that there must be a six-year liability shield for corporate America, for companies like Tyson to be able to literally get away with murder. Georgia Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are right there with McConnell, because of course they are. They are as corrupt as he is, and will be looking toward their corporate pals and, of course, their stock portfolios. They're selling out hurting Georgians to protect their own bottom lines. Had enough of GOP corruption? Give $4 right now to fire Perdue and Loeffler, two of the most corrupt Republican senators, in January. We need all hands on deck to win the Georgia Senate runoffs on Jan. 5, and you can volunteer from wherever you are. Click here to see the Georgia volunteer activities that work best for you.

Despite their uncanny elements, the black-and-white worlds of Stefan Zsaitsits (previously) deftly encapsulate the ennui and angst of modern life.

Some of the lethargic, anxiety-ridden figures literally are overwhelmed by the atmosphere or shown putting on a happy face.

Through delicately layered flax and cotton paper, Peng Wei (previously) reconceptualizes common notions of femininity. The Chinese artist casts figurative sculptures depicting only the human torso, which are shapely in front and abstractly gathered in back. Inky tableaus of spectral figures, scenes of war, and domestic tasks all evoking ancient Chinese narratives—like Paragons of Feminine Virtue by Ming-dynasty thinker Lv Kun and Qing-dynasty novelist Pu Songling’s Strange Tales from the Chinese Studio—envelop the exterior.  More
