Sometimes I wonder

I generally like this podcast, but every now and then I wonder how Cato employs some of its people. Gene Healy today (2/16/21) said B Clinton's lying about a blow job was arguably less serious than D Trump's lying about inciting violence, and was worse than R Nixon's cover up and obstruction of justice. Is this guy for real?

Facebook Oversight Board Upholds Trump Ban

The Facebook Oversight Board is merely deception and trickery to fend off government legislation and regulation.

While this decision was limited to whether the ban after Jan 6 incident was justified, the board did say Facebook should create “clear, necessary, and proportionate policies that promote public safety and respect freedom of expression.” Even if Facebook follows this recommendation, enforcement certainly will be unequal.

Maybe Cato should have asked this representative of the board to muse on why Facebook does not equally enforce its ban on the likes of other inciteful individuals like Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, ex-NFL player Colin Kapernick, or Ayatollah Ali Khamanei.

Single Caucasian Male???

I suggest your ‘expert’ guests spend some time doing research. The male who grossly assaulted the 65 yr old Asian woman was not Caucasian. Also any discussion about domestic terror that does not mention ANTIFA or BLM, who are responsible for billions in damage and many lives lost, loses credibility. You can do better CATO
