Biden should call out Rupert Murdoch by name.

Not just Tucker Carlson or Fox News.
Say the owner of Fox News name and that his employees are peddling hate.
Maybe even publicly invite him to the White House to discuss the subject.

What uncomfortable things will We/Me now do to save democracy.

So there can no longer be any doubt about what we are up against and what they will do.
The only question is what WE will do to stop them between now and the midterms.
For me:
I am going to stretch my comfort zone by;
Telling family, friends, and acquaintances why I’m going to work to elect Democrats in November.
I don’t like confrontation (in fact, I hate it).
But, if need be, I will state my exact feelings about what voting Republican means to me and how I just can not waste my time right now socializing with those who will vote Republican.
After November, I may well go back to those relationships.
But, for now, my time and disposable income will be spent trying to elect Democrats both in my area and nationally.
I will door knock, phone bank, distribute yard signs, post on social media, bring food to other volunteers. Whatever I’m asked to do. Whether I like the task or not. I will do it.
So I challenge all progressives reading this to double your efforts too.
Our democracy depends on it!

What happened to the cry of "Activist Judges".

What could be more activist than overturning a 50 year precedent?

So the dog finally caught the car. What happens now?

Does this infuriate our side enough that we see massive Democratic turnout in 2022?
Does this embolden the GOP to shoot for more outrageous SCOTUS opinions such as overturning the right to privacy, birth control, gay marriage, interracial marriage?

Remember where you were and how you feel right now and then decide how you will fight back.
They want an Christian Taliban Autocracy America that looks like the fictional Gilead in
The Handmaids Tale.
That’s no longer a joke or a scare tactic.
We now KNOW this as a fact.
