Interesting mix of partisan bluster, dog whistle, real stuff
This week in race: Sports (dog) whistles, protection for Dreamers, a special book—and some hunky calendar men. Really.
At first, this might make them bark even more right out the gate, but your persistence will pay off. The dog will hate it—don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt them any—and eventually it will realize that every time it barks it has to hear the sound, so it will stop. There are even , but they may not be loud enough to use on your neighbor’s dog. An actual dog whistle will definitely be loud enough, and it’s something you could use through shared walls if you live in an apartment building.
Dog whistles: they're not just for campaigns anymore! They're also useful on the court and field, according to a crispy editorial by sportscaster Bryant Gumbel. In those games BG likes to follow, it's kinda hard to ignore the ways race almost gets talked about. Definitely worth a read (or viewing, if you want to see him on HBO's Real Sports) .
Well, this was sort of my point about how dog-whistles really work.
Then maybe later, they'll step up to a real Acme Silent Dog Whistle
Silent dog whistles work off a really high frequency and dogs can hear them. But it's just like any other whistle. We occasionally have someone who will buy it and go, "Well my dog didn't respond to it." Well, silent whistles don't make dogs do things. You have to train them what the whistle means the same way you would any other command.It's a very popular product. It's really well made. Acme does a really nice job with their whistles. But it's important to understand what it will and will not do. Just like anything else, it's a cue. You have to teach the dog what it means. We've got some information on our website about how to go about doing that.What I like about silent dog whistles is that they carry a long way. So, for somebody that's looking to use a whistle in a neighborhood and doesn't want to bother the rest of their neighbors, they are looking to have something that doesn't bother your years, that's a real big key factor in it.KATRINA VANDEN HEUVEL, : Paul Ryan is a member of the elite, which Matt spoke of. I think we are seeing the crackup of the party, because the elites didn't deliver for the base. Let's be honest, we're also seeing Donald Trump as the Republican Frankenstein with orange hair. The Republican Party is reaping what it has sowed. There's all this nostalgia about Ronald Reagan, Ronald Reagan announced his candidacy in Philadelphia, Mississippi, the site where three civil rights workers were killed by white supremacists. This is a party that has exploited what Trump is now exploiting. Dogwhistle racism and resentment. We need an inclusive populism, not the scapegoating populism. To speak to the real anxieties and fears and frustrations, but with hope, not demonizations as Donald Trump is doing.
