Yesterday Donald Trump promised only except the results of the election if he wins, use federal troops to crush dissent, and to hold power for at least 8 more years.

This fact will not even be the leading story about Donald Trump today as our media pretends everything is ok.

Re: that Oregon senator whose house burned. Hurricane Katrina destroyed Trent Lotts in Mississippi and the Republican answer was - we will build a new house!

No series of events can change them. Only beating them in every election from school board and city council to POTUS.
Most of America wants gun control. But neither the murder of first graders nor the murder of country music fans changed anything.
Republicans have family members die from lack of health care and continue not to support universal health care.

Thinking about the way Trump refuses to even mention the fires reminds me that we need regional pacts to defend against the Trump administration and the republic cannot survive this.
The regional pacts of competent adjacent governors during april have me some hope and I wish it had continued and the republic cannot survive this
The breakup of America might come through civil war wildly across the continent or just a fascist government abandoning all but show elections and disappearing political foes and the republic cannot survive this

People who compare our unity after 9/11 to our division today are correct. America was shockingly unified after 9/11.

That unity was turned by our leaders into war, surveillance, deportations, concentration camps, and torture.
After 9/11, Democrats and Republicans came together to pass the Patriot Act. To create the Department of Homeland Security. To invade Iraq.
We were unified. We were then exploited by our leaders.

Conor Friedersdorf is one of the people who have spent years using their media platform to constantly punch left, attacking concepts like "critical race theory," providing ammo to the right that wants to use govt authority to silence speech, all while saying he's a libertarian. 1
2) He's very defensive when the realities of power are pointed out. That one side uses government censorship and imprisonment and the other side uses strongly worded criticism and social scorn.
3) He's having a rough day right now because seeing Trump attack critical race theory is such an overt manifestation of the harm he and his merry band of bothsiders have caused.

There is no Qanon without antisemitism. It'd be nice if the vast center of American politics - including the folks who push endless news cycles when lefties go antisemitic (which they do!) - cared.
bari weiss is more concerned about pro-palestinian voices at Bard College than about a vast heavily armed network of conspiracy theorists who are taking over the entire republican party. but "how to fight antisemitism!"
it's the center that determines which kinds of antisemitim get taken seriously across american politics. for better or worse, it's people like bari weiss and - HUGE SIGH - megan mccain who determine this.

They haven't really fixed on qanon because they are too fixated on BDS.

Covid is doing the work that American eugenicists want - killing poor people, people of color, disabled people, and especially those who are multiply marginalized.
It feels like a conspiracy theory. And yet, it's pretty clear that early on the Trump admin stopped caring because they thought it would harm the people they wanted harmed, and then it got out of control.
Eugenics is absolutely core to Trumpism. huffpost.com/entry/donald-t…
