1. Sam Harris jumps the shark
(I parted ways with Harris years ago for the way he treated Jordan Peterson in a ‘debate’. It was not the Sam Harris I had previously known from podcasts and his book. But this is way over the top.)
Sam Harris is a famous atheist and a self-professed “rationalist,” but here he demonstrates that the Left’s hatred for Trump can race far beyond all the bounds of rationality and become cultlike in its perfervid intensity. Sam Harris has spoken critically about Islamic jihad violence in the past, but he allowed himself to be intimidated into silence about the root causes of that violence, and came out in opposition to any and all effective counter-jihad measures. Sam also recently unmasked himself as a fascist foe of the freedom of speech.
In light of all that, this revolting dive into the most fetid dumpster of Trump Hatred, and awe-inspiring example of moral myopia, is not altogether unexpected. But that doesn’t make it any less reprehensible.
The following thread on Sam Harris’ recent TDS is very good.
Just listened to the new episode of @SamHarrisOrg podcast, with guest @sullydish. It is one of the most astonishing experiences of my life, and that's not hyperbole. Before I explain why: I deeply respect both these men, have read much of their published work, and will 1/x

A gunman is on the run after a Greek Orthodox priest was shot at a church in Lyon, France, according to reports.
The shooting is said to have taken place at the Église Greek Orthodox church in the city’s 7th district, with the cleric seriously injured. First responders are at the scene, which has been cordoned off.
This follows a radical Islamic terrorist attack by a Tunisian migrant at a church in Nice which left three dead, although as yet the nature of the incident in Lyon is unclear.
