Is anyone, anyone surprised? Whether you support or oppose republican “silence”?

Publicly and loudly condemn the republicans in toto regardless of whether locally, county, state or nationally. No tolerance, no discussion, no quarter.

“Socialism versus freedom”???

Ask the people in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden if they would prefer a U.S.-style political/economic system, or the democratic-socialist ones they now enjoy, which the four women of “The Squad” and Bernie Sanders favor.

RethugliKKKans and Corporate DemocRATS support an inhumane, planet-destroying political/economic system of predatory, parasitic, global corporate capitalism.

“Socialism or barbarism” (attributed to Friedrich Engels and popularized by Rosa Luxemburg) is the true choice we face.

I’m legit starting to get scared about what the future holds for white people, if they don’t rebuke this acquiescence to fascism from their so-called leaders. People of color have been veeery patient - but patience is finite.

So Steny Hoyer just ruled that you cannot call Trump’s language racist in the House. They’re voting on it now. A racism-suffused society cannot state that its president is a racist in its legislature.

Ya know it’s So WIERD

When I look at these people, all dressed in their American Business Attire…

Witch Cheney, Joe’s re-dux McCarthy, standing with our astute representatives from the, never really great states of Louisiana and Alabama…

My mind does a flash over and I see them in nazi uniforms.

Such kind faces, such concerned faces, flashing into nazi uniforms.

I mean how normal they would look standing in archival film footage.

Like the Pence Pose at the ICE Concentration Camp.
Why the only thing missing was the moniker, leather gloves and riding crop.
Cause he sure had that disapproving SS look down pat.

Maybe its leftovers from the extracurricular activities of my previous youth,
But wouldn’t they look very normal in nazi uniforms?

No matter how his supporters try to rationalize it, a vote for Trump is a vote for racism. There’s not way around it.

Yet Republicans have always been racist piglet scumbags and to be ashamed of when in office; you probably know this unless you’ve been living under a rock.
