Being a fascist means never having to say you’re sorry.


They want the U.S. Congress to be exactly like the Russian Duma: a rubber-stamp body giving sham legitimacy to the decisions and dictates of an autocratic president. The judiciary also serves this purpose in their view.

Self-identified Republicans like this are all but declaring themselves fascists, and yet the corporate media and the Dem establishment are still too timorous to call them what they are.


It was never about morals or the emotional health of the mother, it’s about control.


They don’t believe abortion is really murder.

They just want to execute women for having sex.


Color me fucking shocked.


Let’s be honest, they’d let this stuff slide from their church pastor too as long as he was preaching their brand of hate.


As we’ve seen with countless scandals involving megachurch pastors and televangelists.


Just as big a tell here is that it’s not the “GOP platform” anymore, it’s the “Trump agenda.”


NPR had Ralph :face_vomiting: Reed on Morning Edition yesterday spouting the same crap. When the story repeated later, I changed stations. I can’t stand listening to his bullshit.


Love that chyron: The family feud–that will lead to socialism!

I read the text of his statement as a confession but then listening to it, it sounds like a brag.


“The ends justify the means” basically

Who said that first? Machiavelli?

It may be time to appeal to “moderate” Republicans… Don’t even ask them to vote Dem. Just ask them: do you REALLY want to elect someone just because some fanatical Trumpists tell you to, not because s/he deserves your vote? Is that democracy? Or fascist autocracy? And convince them to stay home in protest.


Well, it’s not like they have anything better to offer than him. What else are they going to do? Pack their bags and call the election over?

Hopefully there will be enough conservatives who aren’t party leadership who do see the hypocrisy and who just decide not to vote for him.

At 2016 CPAC, featured speaker and perennial dickweed Grover Norquist said this about the GOP’s requirements for a candidate for President of the United States:

“We are not auditioning for fearless leader. We don’t need a president to tell us in what direction to go… We just need a president to sign this stuff. We don’t need someone to think it up or design it… Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United States. His job is to be captain of the team, to sign the legislation that has already been prepared.”

Rubber stamps is all they’ve wanted for decades, and to hell with anyone curious enough to ask who is writing the legislation and on whose behalf.


Kind of funny that they can’t find a single person capable of signing things for them who isn’t also a terrible human being in at least six different ways, though. Almost like it’s actually very relevant to them.


I wondered how a damn near forgotten sports celebrity ended up being endorsed by TFG for Congress.

A rubber stamp for TFG’s agenda makes sense of that for me.
