I’m glad she’s done this. It won’t topple all their efforts but I’m sure it’s enough to slow them down.

What will become of this treasure trove of incriminating evidence? My guess is, the same thing that became of it back at the end of May.

True. But we need to be able to connect the dots with evidence and present that evidence to the public. This helps do that. It makes what they are doing explicit and clear, which makes for a stronger argument for rolling such laws back in court.

The New Yorker article about Stephanie Hofeller is astonishing.

I read about this yesterday on NPR but I didn’t know that she had finally uploaded everything yet.

If this is her form of Anarchy give me more of it as much as you can

It’s people like this who betray the evil among them and stand up for what’s right that make me get out of bed everyday and still think there’s hope for decency someday.

I want to buy this woman an endless supply of beers. Keep forcing the bastards and everyone that supports them to take the hardest, most forceful look into that mirror every chance you get

Christ it’s awful what happened to her own kids! Her father abused the courts to gain custody of the kids in retaliation, after Stephanie Hofeller refused to cooperate with an abuse case against her husband. And then he gave them up to foster families and Hofeller has no idea where they are–the records are sealed.

"…I didn’t see him as a racist. He never made any comments to that effect.” He added, “If African-Americans were going to vote mostly for Democrats, well, he was drawing plans to advantage Republicans.

That’s literally structural racism. Right there, in your words.

ETA: And this guy is responsible for actual policies!

I wish my dad was a sociopath so I could do powerful stuff like this.

Damn liberal dad!

Also, we’ve all been pronouncing it wrong.

Reminds me of Strom Thurmond’s apologists. “He wasn’t a racist person in his private life, he just exploited and promoted racism to achieve his political objectives!”

In a very real sense it doesn’t matter if someone bears hatred for oppressed minorities in their heart of hearts. What matters is how their words and actions IMPACT other people.
