“The Maga mob is not a majority of the American population by any stretch of the imagination, but the fascist mob don’t have to be the majority to set in motion the kinds of policies that crush democracy.”
- Frances Fox Piven.

“As thinking people, we don’t pay enough attention to the human lust for cruelty. We're at a point in politics where those aspects of our nature are being brought to the fore; Trump has been doing that for a very long time, & we have to stop it or else it will continue to grow.”
“I don’t think any large-scale progress has ever been made in the US without the kind of trouble & disruption that a movement can cause by encouraging large numbers of people to refuse to cooperate. But movements need the protection of electoral allies- legislative chaperoning.”

Christian fascism is a far-right political ideology that denotes an intersection between (neo)fascism & Christianity.

It is sometimes referred to as #Christofascism, a neologism coined in 1970 by the liberation theologian Dorothee Sölle.
Most fascist movements portray themselves as defenders of Christianity & the traditional Christian family against atheists & amoral humanists. Modern #neofascists claim "Judeo-Christian values must be defended", or are "under attack from western liberals".
This was true of Catholic fascist movements in Poland, Spain, Portugal, France, Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, & Brazil.

We see the rise of divisive, intolerant, nationalistic & fundamentalist #Christofascist rhetoric in the USA, & now here in the UK too.

Lord Sumption, former senior judge who sat on the Supreme Court of the UK from 2012 to 2018.

"The UK's public finances are in a worse state than at any time since the Second World War,"
Sumption just wrote, but Official Opinion wants to blame interest rates, Ukraine, or "just about anything other than the main culprit lurking in the background: the lockdowns of the last two years."
In the UK 5 million self employed people like myself had none of the furlough. Yet we have to pay for the damage done by cheerleaders like you. Seems fair? #neverforget #dontforgive

Remember when RADICAL FEMINIST Elon Musk won plaudits for "activating Starlink" to help Iranian protestors? His superfans swooned & the White House entered into talks with him about setting up SpaceX's satellite internet service in Iran to FIGHT THE POWER! About that...
This thread quotes from recent articles in @PrivateEyeNews & @WIRED.

The Iranian Govt imposed widespread internet blackouts to try to contain the unrest that followed the death in police custody of Mahsa Amini, detained for not wearing a hijab properly.

theguardian.com/world/2022/sep…
In response, billionaire SpaceX founder & serial attention-hogger Elon Musk asked the US government for exemptions from Iran export controls for his Starlink satellite internet service.

"Activating Starlink,” he tweeted, quickly gaining 187,000+ likes.

In memory of #kristalnacht, a short thread on #heidelberg's nazi-era history, tourist charm, and the righteous need for academic boycotts.

On 30 Oct 1990 then CM of #UttarPradesh Mulayam Singh Yadav ordered PAC to fire on Hindus from across #India who had gathered at Ayodhya to demand the liberation of Ram Janmabhoomi. Undeterred, kar sevaks regathered on 2 Nov when they faced bullets again.
Many died.
#NeverForget
I was with The Statesman those days and was in #Ayodhya on 30 October and 2 November, 1990.
A sadhu standing next to me on Ram Chabutra took a bullet on his forehead when the firing began. He crumbled into a heap.
All you could hear was the crack of rifle fire and 'Jai Sri Ram'.
Along with other journalists, including Mark Tully, I took shelter behind a dilapidated structure.
When the firing stopped, we stepped out. Ayodhya was littered with slippers and bits of clothing. There were people lying around -- injured or dead.
There was an eerie silence.

The terror continues from #Russia tonight.

But before the details on that, as usual a quick link to the start of yesterday's thread for those catching up on news from #Ukraine.

#Zaporizhzhia was subjected to a new wave of rocket attacks in the city.

Rescue workers are already at the scene, there are reports of casualties. #Ukraine has asked not to publish photos yet, but this CCTV gives you an idea of the power of the incoming #Russia|n missiles

Finally, here is the thread for Day 226 of #Russia's illegal war on #Ukraine.

Apologies for the last start, so much going on, chatting to people in Ukraine, planning for the fundraiser and tennis work too!

To check yesterday's news, scroll here⬇️

More criticism of #Russia's war effort and lack of training/discipline was highlighted earlier today by the British daily update:

#StandWithUkraine #StopPutin
Following Boxing's Governing Body taking the incredulous decision to readmit fighters from #Russia and #Belarus, the sport could be heading for a split.

#Sweden outright refuses to attend any tournament featuring boxers from 🇷🇺or🇧🇾. The next event is in Montenegro next week!

On @CNBC @jimcramer nailed it.

The US and Europe need a lot more oil production and pipelines. Their progressive bases prevent accepting this reality.

Nothing has shown the utter failure of liberal energy policy better than the Russoukrainian conflict.
#NeverForget

This is a failure that should be placed at the feed of Biden, Obama, and all other Democrats.

Next time liberals say "That won't matter for a decade!", remember that statement is a mendacious game.

Bush was right when he promoted nuclear.
Others were right when we wanted to drill in ANWR or build Keystone.

And every single damn time, liberals say "That takes too long!"

#NeverForget that the cap on bankers' bonuses was introduced as part of efforts to improve regulation of the under-regulated banking sector in the wake of the 2008 crash, which led to a decade of brutal austerity, & a dangerous increase in polarisation.

theconversation.com/bankers-bonus-…
In many countries, including ours, unemployment spiked, household wealth evaporated & there were long-term negative effects on global economic growth, income inequality & political stability - & now our Govt is bringing back the same failed neoliberal policies which created this.
There is now good quality research into banking bonuses which suggests caution, with evidence of a direct relationship between “variable executive remuneration” (performance dependent bonuses) & risk taking, & other negative 'unintended consequences'.

Just wanted to share a few lesser-known facts about 1930s Germany which given the #CostOfLivingCrisis & a new PM, seem salient, taken predominantly from The Third Reich Trilogy by British historian Richard J. Evans, hailed as a "masterpiece of historical scholarship."
Evans produced the report into the writings of David Irving who had claimed he'd been defamed as a Holocaust denier. The report proved irrefutable: Irving had deliberately distorted & manipulated historical evidence to bring it in line with his prejudices. Irving lost the case.
Almost every day I see the tired old claim that because the Nazis had 'socialist' in their official party name, they *were* socialists - despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, including the fact they imprisoned & executed socialists, union organisers & other left-wingers.

I've learned plenty about how & why the Nazis came to power - issues of race & migration, a pervading sense of victimisation among nationalists, & a general lack of empathy were all exploited by the Nazis.

These conditions are present in Britain today.

While Jews were of course the primary victims, the Nazis also targeted other groups for persecution & murder.

The Nazis claimed that Roma, people with disabilities, some Slavic peoples, & Black people were biologically inferior.

The regime persecuted other groups because of politics, ideology, or behaviour, including Communists, Socialists, Union organisers, Jehovah’s Witnesses, gay men, & people the Nazis called “asocials” & “professional criminals.”

#WTC #Building7 was the first steel skyscraper in history to collapse primarily due to fire. Furthermore, it collapsed at free fall speed, which is physically impossible. It’s one of the clearest examples from #September11 that show we’ve been lied to about the whole thing.
And we’re supposed to believe that the BBC just made an honest mistake by reporting it’s collapse well before it actually happened. #NeverForget
I suppose it’s also just a coincidence that #Building7 is where most of the relevant government agencies had offices in the city. #FalseFlag

Truly 9/11 Twitter is a view of the dumpster fire that can be Twitter, so for those of you haven’t had this seared into their brains, let’s review what happened on this day 21 year ago:
4 planes filled with innocent civilians left for cross-country trips that they never arrived at. There were no survivors
The North Tower was the first to be hit, and it collapsed in 102 mins. There were no survivors above the impact zone. Likely it was impassable but we’ll never know.

WHEN WILL WE LEARN?
by Harry Browne
Published September 12, 2001

The terrorist attacks against America comprise a horrible tragedy. But they shouldn't be a surprise.

(1 of 17) #NeverForget #PatriotDay #911Anniversary
It is well known that in war, the first casualty is truth – that during any war truth is forsaken for propaganda. But sanity was a prior casualty: it was the loss of sanity that led to war in the first place.

(2 of 17)
Our foreign policy has been insane for decades. It was only a matter of time until Americans would have to suffer personally for it. It is a terrible tragedy of life that the innocent so often have to suffer for the sins of the guilty.

“And we hold close in our hearts all those who continue to mourn the loved ones who were taken from them. (3/6)
