I wondered out loud a few months ago if the antics of the hard right Representatives would finally grow old with the more reasonable or centrist ones (if they exist). Maybe this is that finally coming to pass.

Instead she has decided to stand up for the rights of the ethnic Hungarians living in.. hang on let me check my notes... A place called Transcarpathia. She's introduced this.. thing to the House:

https://amendments-rules.house.gov/amendments/ethnic%20minorities%20amendment240418131602176.pdf

It's just typical noise, but there's no way she knew that place existed until someone handed her a note with it written down, right?

I know they're still around, but recently I've heard only a bit about MTG's antics, nothing about Gaetz except the occasional news item about his sex poo poo, and so little about Boebert after the public crank yank that I almost forgot about her. Not sure if they've been told to keep their heads down or the media finally tired of their antics (not likely) but either way it was refreshing to be able to more or less pretend they didn't exist for a while.

Transcarpathia is a real region that spans Eastern Slovakia and Western Ukraine that's home to an ethnolinguistic minority group called the Rusyns that speak the Rusyn language. My wife's great grandmother immigrated from a village in western Ukraine (which was part of Austria-Hungary at the time) and her grandmother still speaks it.

I'm sure there's some Hungarians there, but as far as I'm aware, they aren't facing any kind of major persecution. Most importantly, I'm 100% certain the Russians would happily murder them like they've been murdering Russian and Ukrainian speakers in the rest of the country.

I'm semi-sure it's about the hungarian minority in Romania and the effects of the end of AH in 1918, 115 years ago. Why a semi-literate American locally empowered politician is putting forwards legislation about their language education, it wouldn't appear to be motivated by a common impetus for another's well being.

Yeah seems weirdly niche for a US Georgian congressperson who probably can't point at the other Georgia on a map to be going to bat for.

Iím gonna bet itís straight from her fellow Putin thrall and ethno-nationalist Victor Orban.

E: I would believe that some of Ukraineís post-2014 language laws prioritizing the Ukrainian language (which are the small basis in fact for Russian claims that Russian-speaking Ukrainians were being oppressed) which were aimed at countering Russian influence and media may have some effect on Hungarian speaking minorities. IIRC those laws required only teaching Ukrainian in schools or somethin.

I don't think Russia cares whether or not Russia leaving would be the will of the Ukrainian people. This bit of diplomacy isn't a poll left to the people by Elon.

We had a local line dance joint that opened in the late 80s and sucked real bad and shared the name of the song when it went big so I always remember: I got a match/Where you wanna go?/Let's go burn/Cotton Eye Joe!

The clip apparently played in the background of Discord's toast notification, the little pop-up messages that appear at the bottom of your screen for a few seconds to let you know something is happening: You've got email, a Steam friend is playing a new game, or whatever.

Developer and Discord dataminer Marvin Witt (via IGN) said this had the effect of creating a viewbot that simulated literally hundreds of millions of people watching the video.
