Slog AM: Trump's New Social Media Site Is Called TRUTH Social, Seattle Pride Gives González Four Rainbows, and Cars Spell Trouble Around Climate Pledge Arena

Republicans have voted against voting. The Freedom to Vote Act just failed in the Senate. The bill would have created baseline national standards for running elections, reigned in the worst gerrymandering, and required certain millionaires to disclose which candidates they’d purchased. Democrats needed 60 votes to pass, which they didn’t get. But there’s a silver lining: The bill’s failure has once again demonstrated the harm of the filibuster, and now more congressional Democrats are talking about getting rid of it.

Trump’s New Free Speech Network Has Already Banned Any Criticism of Itself

Donald Trump hailed his own creation of a new free speech social media network, Truth Social, on Wednesday night—but a scan of its terms and conditions shows that users will not be allowed to criticize the site. The former president, who was thrown off Facebook and Twitter earlier this year for inciting the Capitol riot, announced the launch of his new network in a press release, writing: “I created Truth Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech.” The site’s landing page claims that the site, which is set to go live next year, will be a place for “open, free, and honest global conversation.” However, despite those promises, Truth Social has already published a long list of prohibited activities—including a clause that states that users must not “disparage, tarnish, or otherwise harm, in our opinion, us and/or the Site.” Users are also told they must not “annoy” any of the site’s employees. It’s not clear if that includes Trump himself.

Making positive change: Seven high school seniors receive Sojourner Truth Social Justice Awards

NORTHAMPTON – For years now, activists have gathered annually in Florence under the spreading arms of the Sojourner Truth statue many of them saw get built, to raise their voices in song and award a handful of high school seniors scholarships in the great abolitionist’s name. You’d expect there’d be something missing in the Zoom version of all this, but led by Sojourner Truth Memorial Committee co-chairs Marcus Ware and Carol Rinehart, what one got was a pretty excellent show, with a lot of personality and youth of all ages, colors and creeds in full expression.
