As the train of fascism, with its political violence against the powerless, pulled slowly into the station, the opposition party gave the press quippy soundbites while tossing well written letters at the powerful locomotive. Historians and academia stood back and took notes.

Whether she usually has a gun or was faking the move, that’s how you get shot, and it’d be a justified shooting, too. “Officer, the individual was acting erratically. aggressively, and as I saw them trying to pull a gun I felt my life was in danger, so I shot them.”

2 things you can't do during citizens arrest: 1. Smoke a bunch of meth 2. Operate a motor vehicle while on meth 3. Reach for the piece tucked into your belt, only to remember you traded it for meth

They are actually experts on seeing the signs. I’m not, but he’s always seemed one dumb decision and presos some substance abuse away from a psychotic break.
Elon Musk is having a hypomanic or manic episode. He needs help. This is not a joke. It’s a crisis.

What's in Mastriano's party affiliation? A fascist by any other name would spew the Big Oil propaganda untethered to reality we see with our own eyes.

Correct, the cyber warfare troll farms just sowing discord and strengthening people'e beliefs in the most far-fetched conspiracy theories. Same tactic Russia military/gov't has used on Russians themselves. #TransnationalOligarchy

BREAKING: Larry Ellison, one of the biggest investors in Elon Musk’s bid to buy Twitter, joined a call in November of 2020 which was focused on challenging Biden’s win and overturning the election. This feels like a very big fucking deal.

A harm against any one of us is harm against all of us. Hate and violence have no place here in America, and we are all in this together as one nation undivided.

This is why we have Black Lives Matter, because according to Bill Cassidy they don't.
“But according to GOP senator Bill Cassidy, the rate at which women die during pregnancy or shortly after is not as bad as it seems—if you subtract the deaths of Black women, which apparently don’t count.” vanityfair.com/news/2022/05/…

It is so wild to me that they're holding CPAC in Hungary, openly celebrating Orban's defeat of democracy, openly planning to do the same in the US ... it's just all out in the open now. And still the media can't seem to convey it clearly to the public.

I know it happened a while ago, but I feel like our nation and our media never fully processed how insane it was that Donald Trump, the sitting president, called up Republicans in red states and basically asked them to fake their 2020 vote totals so he'd win.

At some point maybe more people will notice that Republicans are actively trying to make everything worse so they can run in how bad things are. And that’s the extent of their plan.

All Democrats should celebrate this win. We need candidates that will fire up our bases in solidly blue areas if we want to win statewide in key battleground states. Summer has proven that she’s that candidate. So good!

No SoundCloud, sorry! If you’re new, I was homeschooled K-12 in a Republican, evangelical home in Texas, went to a conservative Bible college, & still turned out Democrat 🤷🏼‍♀️😂 I still love Jesus! But Christofascism is a real threat to our democracy, & it’s my duty to speak up.📣

Any guesses as to why, in the last 24 hours, Republicans have voted against bills addressing the baby formula shortage, price gouging at the pumps, and domestic terrorism?
