Found an image of someone trying to "save the children" back in the 1970s.



One of the godmothers of modern American Moral Panics (along with noted sociopath Phyllis Schlafly, of course). Anita B. did a lot of harm in a short period of time.

QAnon: Same shit, different century.

I don't trust a full third or more of this country. And I am horrified by that.

Trump/MAGA, QAnon, all of the endless amounts of racism and conspiracy theories and misogyny and sadistic glee at "when the looting starts, the shooting starts."

The PROUD ignorance and denial of reality and science, and the reveling in cruelty and bigotry.

The sanctimonious "Christianity" that inevitably accompanies the hate.

The authoritarian white nationalism, the contempt for democracy and the rule of law, the admiration for corruption, the endless amount of LYING....

A full third or more of this country is on board with all of the above. This is how fascism comes to America. It is here.

It can't just be Biden and Harris. It has to be both houses of Congress, every state legislature, every court - the Republican Party has to be systematically defeated and destroyed. It is THAT bad.

We can't afford not to. Our children and grandchildren can't afford us not to...

Get this cancer out of this world!

I love this image.



(Feel free to caption! )

The core reason for why Donald Trump specifically is so beloved by Republican voters...

...is that he publicly, proudly, shamelessly validates their bigotry, and in a way that is entertaining to Republicans.

This, above all else, distinguished him from the rest of the pack in 2016. He's a total celebrity caricature - who says directly to Republican voters, "You are right to be racist. You are right to be misogynistic. You are right to hate Muslims and immigrants. You should not be ashamed of that - you should EMBRACE that!" The embarrassed bigot no longer needs to be embarrassed.

I'm not saying anything new, of course, but this has to be emphasized: Trump tells them that their hatred is valid and good. That's why they'll never abandon him.

"I am your voice!"

"Strange" that all these Trump operatives keep getting caught doing crimes.

Hmmm....


Too many (white) Americans pressed the racism and sexism buttons in 2016. Putin and MSM helped.

“What about her emails?!”

The President gave a great speech. Link below.

Haters Gonna Hate!

Something Bernie said last night about Trump and authoritarianism needs to be highlighted.

Under this administration authoritarianism has taken root in our country. I, and my family, and many of yours know the insidious way authoritarianism destroys democracy, decency and humanity.

Presumably everyone here knows Bernie Sanders's family background.

Sanders became interested in politics at an early age. He said, "A guy named Adolf Hitler won an election in 1932.[c] He won an election, and 50 million people died as a result of that election in World War II, including six million Jews. So what I learned as a little kid is that politics is, in fact, very important."[19] In the 1940s, many of his relatives in German-occupied Poland were murdered in the Holocaust.[8][14][20]

That, to me, was the most important, poignant, and clearly personal part of Bernie's speech. I thought it should be highlighted.

Who do you think Trump will pardon? Stone, Manafort, or someone else?

Taking the temperature of DU on this one...

The Emirati-Israeli relations are unsurprising and bad for the Palestinians - and peace in the ME.

Seriously, fuck these regimes. Of course Trump is all over this shit.
