On this day, September 29–30, 1941, Ukrainian Banderite Nazis, including Bandera’s OUN-B and the Ukrainian Auxiliary Police (Hilfspolizei), joined their German Nazi allies to commit the Babi Yar massacre.

The joint Ukrainian-German Nazi pogrom saw them brutally murder some 33,771 Jews in just two days. The Nazi alliance would go on to kill many more over time at the Syrets concentration camp.

Like with the earlier Lviv pogrom, Ukrainian Banderite Nazis — particularly the Stepan Bandera’s OUN — reveled in murdering Jews. This is the legacy of contemporary Right Sector, C14, #Azov, Svoboda, et al.

Ukrainian Banderite Nazis and German Nazis used USSR POWs to bury the dead in mass graves. Ironically the Glorious Red Army would eventually liberate Ukraine from both Ukrainian Banderite and German Nazis.

Contemporary Ukrainian Banderite Nazis. The most dangerous fascists of all.

Wealthy, white parents are advocating to create super-spreader events by reopening California schools that will put #BIPOC, #POC, and poor children the most at risk? Checks out.

Childhood cases of COVID-19 have seen a dramatic upswing during the beginning of the supposedly “science believing” Biden-COP Administration. It's reckless for centrists to advocate for reopening schools, but that's where we're at.

From: https://services.aap.org/en/pages/2019-novel-coronavirus-covid-19-infections/children-and-covid-19-state-level-data-report/

“Change in Child COVID-19 Cases*99,078 new child COVID-19 cases were reported the past week from 2/4/21-2/11/21 (2,934,292 to 3,033,370)Over two weeks, 1/28/21-2/11/21, there was an 8% increase in the cumulated number of child COVID-19 cases (216,595 new cases (2,816,775 to 3,033,370))”

The latest executive order by troglodyte Trump tacitly admits that charter schools are *NOT* public schools. We all knew that, but it’s nice when the vile privatizers tell on themselves. *

While it is good to see DeVos and Trump on the way out, there’s little to hope for with Biden. It’s already been announced that right-wing, neoliberal hatchetman Bruce Reed will be Biden’s Deputy Chief of Staff, and the choice of seemingly apolitical Miguel Cardona is probably for a reason.

At the end of the day Biden was part of the second worst administration for education. The damage doltish Arne Duncan did prior to Trump is what opened the door for DeVos in the first place.

DeVos = Duncan + Dominionism *
