Late Stage GOP Fascists Events 🖕🏾🍊🤡 (Part 4)

Honestly I think woke has a pretty clear definition…making an effort to be respectful and inclusive to people who are different from you. They just don’t want to say the definition because it makes it clear they’re the bad guys.

Or they are just so goddamn stupid to know what it means.

You never see them accidentally use “hating woke” a stand-in for anything other than simple bigotry though. They may not be bright but they know who they hate.

Cruz doesn’t need a police escort; everybody hates him but I don’t think anybody respects him enough to think he’s worth assassinating.

Of course, the MAGA faction of the GOP only cares about respecting an anthem or a flag when they can be used to accuse others of “not doing it right” :roll_eyes::

Just as long as it doesn’t effect the cut of the profits they get from the sport.

They will, then, of course, allow science into religious classrooms, right? Fair is fair and all that. Right??

Odd how we live in a surveillance society that can see what everyone, everywhere is doing and saying with AI that can determine anything but police can never find all the people making bigoted threats.

Like Roe v. Wade, another thing that previous Supreme Courts had nailed in place, that the current one is likely to ignore.

In a new episode of his “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, the host bonded with author and journalist Coleman Hughes over the latter’s tense appearance on “The View.”

“It is the show that people love to hate,” Rogan said. “They get so much hate-watching … and viral clips of them saying ridiculous things. It is a rabies-infested hen house.”

Speaking of MAGA fascists:

While Trump’s base is mostly old, slightly [?] racist white people, that base has a highly unstable, militant anti-government core (think of the yahoos who tried to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Witmer, or Cliven Bundy and his rabble-rousing kinfolk, or Timothy McVeigh of the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing in which 168 persons were slaughtered). Such fanatics often have money, arsenals and serious martyry complexes. If Trump loses the November election, similar anti-federal government extremists will doubtless attempt to destabilize the country even more than it already is.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center there are roughly 700 anti-government extremists groups in the U.S. today. Militia movements alone account for roughly 50,000 wannabe Stonewall Jacksons. That is enough manpower to inflict a substantial amount of damage – though not enough to wage a genuine civil war. (There were about a million Confederate troops and they still lost.) And while most anti-government extremists will lack the guts to do anything besides their usual bit-ching and rage posting on social media, a small percentage of them will.

If President Joe Biden wins this November’s election, ordinary Americans should brace themselves for an increase in domestic terrorism, a large uptick in skirmishes against federal troops and federal agents, and more scenes as horrific as the January 6 U.S. Capitol attack.

Anti-government extremists may well launch bombing campaigns similar to those other racist, anti-government extremists undertook during the Red Summer of 1919 (in which white supremacist terrorist attacks broke out in more than three dozen U.S. cities and one rural Arkansas County, and during Mississippi Freedom Summer (when 67 black homes, businesses and churches were bombed or burned.)

Other nightmare scenarios could resemble The 2008 Mumbai attacks in India. Those attacks were perpetrated by a mere 10 members of a radical Islamist militant group, but managed to kill 175 people, and injure more than 300.

I agree with the assessment. And the stochastic terror element does worry me. No real good way to defend against that. But the idea of Jan6 events? I’m not so sure. I suspect this is where we would find out that the feds are not gonna get caught flat-footed again, and, worst case scenario, they find out that the idea that they have a monopoly on weaponry is flat out wrong. In the end they are a small minority who only got where they are by being loud, and, honestly, because our side was asleep. We are not now. Dare I say, we are “woke.” I do not believe apathy will be a problem this time around. At least, I pray not.
