I usually don’t make profanity laced threads. I just cannot get passed @msnbc capeheart and others doing that segment full of nonsense on Kamala’s LGBTQ record. It’s so difficult to watch lies and queer voter suppression happening in real time by queers. Growing up in the 60’s..
With everything so different. The pain we went through. The work we’ve put in over the many decades. Why is sit so difficult for young queer people to read a few facts? Is it internalized homophobia and transphobia? Racism? Or primary perm-a-grudge? Or just bad reporting?
So they fail to understand where we are and how we got here? Why the fuck is happening?

So a Nazi is running for Congress in North Carolina: @MadisonCawthorn.

He posted on Instagram that he checked off his bucket list visiting “the furer’s” vacation spot, the Eagles nest. Cawthorn is a homeschooled gun fanatic with a website that reads like a kid wrote it. uses symbols of the Oath Keepers and far right extremism on his body and for his business. He say he is a “better packaged” conservative Republican.

But he’s just the same old White supremacist with an IG. And a pretty face.
Of course the symbols are deliberate. Cawthorn is a Nazi. Defeat this nonsense before we are stuck with him in Congress. His opponent is @ColMorrisDavis.

“There is a movement on to normalize pedophilia, and I guarantee you your reaction to that is probably much the same as your reaction when you first heard about gay marriage" -Rush Limbaugh, Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree tonight at SOTU
"The issue has always been denying them a status that they can't have, by definition. By definition - solely, by definition - same-sex people cannot be married." - Rush Limbaugh, Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree tonight at SOTU
“I pointed out the other day, well, then should we maybe stop flouting and flaunting gay marriage, because gay marriage is really disapproved in Islam,” -Limbaugh, blaming it on The Muslims

This is the most offensive trash ever written. This type of thinking acts as if trans people are not human and that the only consideration should be the journey of hateful flawed straight white men. This is the very definition of white straight supremacy. The Bernie left.
Be clear. The Bernie left is prepping you for fascism. The Bernie left wants you to hold up the white straight working class on a pedestal. The Bernie left wants you to disregard POC, LGBTQ, disabled, immigrant, indigenous, women as “distractions” to the goal of the revolution.
This is not new. Bernie Sanders ideology has been consistent for 50 years.

Class is the only struggle that matters.

All other Identities are distractions from the class struggle.

Doubling down on Joe Rogan is the most in your face push in his ideology yet.

It’s time to 👀
