I have been warning of this for the last 6 years. I thought it would happen while Trump was president. It did not.

But it's just happened -> Richard Mack, the head of the CSPOA, has thrown his weight behind uniting county sheriffs with militias to overthrow American democracy.
For starters, here's what I wrote back in 2016, about the meeting between Donald Trump & William S. Lind - one of the original thinkers behind the idea of uniting militias with county sheriffs, to fight state & federal authority:…
3) Also in 2016, I covered the developing, extensive relationship between the Trump campaign & CSPOA, via Trump campaign operative appearances on the radio show of CSPOA's VP of Operations:…

Republican #AmericanTaliban who declared #TexasWarOnWomen message to you.
We need your help. If you are on the sidewalks at the abortion mills or if you hold evidence of an abortion occurring after the baby’s heartbeat is detectable, you can anonymously report that.

Gilead Message:
Through civil enforcement Texas Heartbeat Act escapes the talons of activist judges by relying on the public to enforce the law. Any abortionist who commits the abortion after the child’s heartbeat is detected is liable to be sued by almost anyone.

I'm gonna need everyone to quit using #AmericanTaliban and #TexasTaliban--not only are they xenophobic copouts that ignore the role of white American Evangelicalism behind the Texas law, but they also get the timeline mixed up. This form of US Christianity PREDATES the Taliban.
I know you think you're being cute, but trust me, white American Evangelicals have never needed to look abroad to get ideas about how to enact oppression here at home.

The Texas abortion law is rooted in whiteness, Christianity, and Americanism.
When you can only describe a purely American phenomenon in terms of the bad stuff that happens elsewhere, you're saying you think the bad stuff *belongs* in those other countries. You're saying you think it's always been sunshine and roses here, and injustices here are anomalies.

Wow. How did this escape notice?! Gaetz and Boebert introduced a bill to eliminate the Department of Education, a long term goal of Christian nationalists and thus the CNP. #CNP #AmericanTaliban
I’m not implying it will pass. Not yet anyway. But it proves they have no interest in improving public education. They want to take over school boards so that they can destroy public education.
Related thread about the CNP & its intent to destroy public education. Several of the key leaders pushing to ban mask mandates & CRT, etc are in the CNP (Flynn, Kirk, Morton Blackwell). They don’t want to improve public education. They want to destroy it.…

I think its time to talk about #ReligiousFreedom and exactly where one person’s #freedom starts, and another’s ends. And no I’m not talking about a woman’s body dividing cells, I’m talking about breathing adults who #vote
#ReligiousFreedom is SO important to everybody. And I agree that I ALSO want my own #FreedomOfReligion. But other people DON’T get to define that.
I am in charge of my own #belief systems. You could even say I’m RESPONSIBLE for them🤔
No matter how wacky they got, the point in time where I am no longer allowed to practice my #Religion, would start IF it harmed another breathing adult, and that word #harm is pretty loaded too, isn’t it?
How do we define #Freedom?
How do we define #Life?

Racism shut the government down. Tell the story accurately.
Oh and by the fucking way, Trump and the GOP don’t (and never did) have a mandate to build their racist ass wall in the first place. The very thought of this and other heinous ideas was why 3 million more Americans voted for Hillary than did Trump. We didn’t vote for this SHIT.
Matter of fact the GOP’s racism is one of the main reasons they just lost the damn House. They’re going out the same way they came in, virulently racist and egregiously fucking stupid, incompetent and negligent. Mark it down.

94% of Black women voters had no problem being allies to each other, Hillary Clinton or women in general in 2016. Trump’s in the WH b/c 53% of White women refused to do the same. Behold the self hatred.
Also can we please stop using religion/abortion as an excuse for White women’s self sabotaging alliance with the GOP? Black women are the backbone of the Black Church and you don’t see us voting Republican or perpetuating the lie of “pro-life”. Behold the racism too.
Even these women’s presumption that they should have the power to force pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood upon other women who don’t want it is a function of misogyny and patriarchy. Just because they’re women doesn’t mean they aren’t working in service of men against women.
