The idea that "whiteness" is evil is so moronic it's easy to laugh off. But this is really & truly being ingrained into the way in which many see the world—& even themselves. A lot of dangerous ideas are dumber than a box of rocks. But a complete idiot can kill you with a rock.
Professional, polite American society keeps shrugging off racialist ideology, making excuses for it while calling anyone who resists it a racist. But it's not going stop unless we call it what it is. It's a cancer that'll kill America if left unchecked and untreated.
This is what they are teaching your kids in school—racialism: the idea that all human beings are fundamentally divided and different in essence based on their race—& whiteness is evil, just like America. And we’ve slowly grown used to Jim Crow in reverse, sanctioned by HR & law.
What’s astounding is that if you point out what they are doing and saying they call you racist—even if, of course, you find racialism repulsive, which is why you are pointing it out in the first place—and you clearly stand for equality under the law, the basic American principle.

Trump’s gotta decide which woman will be offered up on the altar to the demons of our time.
One can’t know beforehand what they will do, exactly, to the nominee & their family & friends except that they will forever destroy their reputation in front of the nation, and half of the nation will believe them. The real selection process is now the last minute psy-op ordeal.
The right has never done this to a nominee, one notes. Yet, anyway. Not even close—not even with legit oppo research. In fact, it’s wild how for 60 years of basically losing the Supreme Court, I’ve never heard of a serious court packing plan from the Right—

Election 2020 THREAD.

What legitimizes American government is wut is now truly in dispute. Many are understandably in denial about this. But there’s a reason that deepest & longest disputes over contentious last 4yrs haven’t really been abt policy. Nor is the ongoing election.
Clinton & Obama, even before Trump took office, shot their shots at legitimacy of election (Russia). Ever since, drumbeats have gotten louder even as particular angles change. Now some openly claim Biden shld not concede even if Trump wins. The narrative way has been prepared.
Further, due to legal changes to the electoral process there is virtually no chance that the election will be decided on election night. It will take weeks—at least—to count the mail-in ballot vote and there will be hundreds of lawsuits. Believe them when they tell you this.

The fact that corporations like Disney are fine with doing business in China but will boycott doing business in America with states like Georgia on account of abortion laws tells you everything about how serious and how deep the divide in this nation is at present.
Powerful figures like Senator Feinstein () and Michael Bloomberg will eagerly and publicly defend China () while disparaging their fellow Trump-supporting Americans.
Google is willing to start an A.I. lab with China while pulling out of an A.I. contract with the U.S. government because it makes their employees uncomfortable.

Democrats: “Mail-in ballots, ballot harvesting, etc. are fine. Our lawsuits to change the way we’ve always voted aren’t cheating.”

Also Ds: “Everyone needs to realize—it’s gonna *look* like Trump won on election night, but in weeks after when all votes r counted Biden will win.”
Note the “streams of stories and social media posts ‘explaining’ how, while on election night it might look as if Trump won, close states will tip to Biden as all the mail-in ballots are ‘counted.’”

“All of those lawsuits...have similar goals that will give these political actors the ability to game the system...They are trying to force states to mail absentee ballots to all registered voters, despite the known inaccuracies of state voter rolls.”

Pretend that Patriot Prayer "far right" guy shot dead in Portland last night by Antifa did belong to a "violent hate group." Now: find me all the articles abt how Kyle Rittenhouse shot members of a "far left" "violent hate group." You know, the ones actually burning down America.
Here’s what you need to know about Antifa. What the media won’t tell you. And @theammind will.

“Antifa is in many ways an improved iteration of prior militant leftist guerilla organizations.” —@ShidelerK

“Antifa deliberately shrouds itself in mystery.” —@PaulR_Gregory

The Left is very upset that someone showed up with a gun and shot rioters in Kenosha because they are against...violence and lawlessness and civic unrest?

You built this. You asked for this. You refused to condemn and stop it. You don't get to take the high ground now. Own it.
You allowed the destruction of our cities. Of our businesses. Of our way of life. You have caused millions of people to begin moving from their homes and workplaces. And you are now going to get upset if citizens try to defend what complicit/incompetent governments will not?
Of course the problem is we don't want citizens out with guns having to do this. Of course this will lead to unnecessary and tragic violence. But that's the point for the Antifa-BLM Party. That's exactly what they want. That's exactly what you asked for when you unleashed them.
