Have yet to see a single Biden cabinet pick being floated who isn't a complete slap in the face to progressives -- shoutout to everyone who said we could push him left after the election
From now on anybody who responds to criticism of Biden with "At least he's better than Trump!!!" is getting blocked, because I'm so tired of explaining that that is completely beside the point. We need a president who is actually GOOD, not just "comparatively better than Trump."
If we keep up this "one step forward, two steps back" routine that Democrats have been doing for the last 40 years or so, the only thing that's going to happen is we keep moving backward. It's time to hold politicians accountable and make them understand they work for US.
"Don't criticize Biden before the election!"

"Don't criticize Biden before he takes office!"

"Don't criticize Biden before he's had a chance during his first 100 days!"

"Don't criticize Biden before the midterms!"

"Don't criticize Biden before 2024!"

I'm sensing a pattern...

Revenge of the Sith is actually good in that it accurately depicts how society can be willingly led into fascism through conspiracy theories about "elites" and the use of ethnic scapegoating to explain economic oppression of the masses, and how liberalism is powerless to stop it
At the very beginning of the prequels, Lucas tells us who the villains are: Capitalists. Economic monopolies backed up by police power, with the liberal gov't unable to do anything. We also see the phenomenal wealth disparity of the so-called "republic," including open slavery.
Palpatine plays both sides, arguing for stronger leadership and executive power while secretly orchestrating the Clone Wars to push the Republic into chaos and militarization. But none of this would be possible if the failures of liberalism hadn't created the right conditions.

How could Democrats possibly think the best way to defeat a racist conservative oligarch who cynically switched parties in order to buy an election is by running a racist conservative oligarch who cynically switched parties so he could buy an election? #BloombergIsRacist
First rule of election strategy is drawing a contrast between you and your opponent. You think the millions of low-info voters who don't care about the primaries and didn't turn out for Hillary are clamoring to vote for Trump Lite just to get rid of the full-flavored version? Nah
"Can we brainstorm ways to make this sound less racist?"

Good luck! #BloombergIsRacist Image

When Republicans talk about "law and order," what they really mean is laws that uphold a specific order which puts white people ahead of everyone else. They are outraged by any law that undermines this order, and excuse anyone who breaks the law in order to uphold this order.
It's very easy to think of Republicans as "hypocrites" for accusing Obama of breaking the law for waking up in the morning, while excusing blatant crimes by Trump. But that misses the point, because their mindset is VERY consistent when viewed through the lens of white supremacy.
This is what I was talking about in the thread above: The "crime" Obama is guilty of is upending the conservative order of white upper-class rule, which is obvious to them but mystifying to everyone else. It's not hypocritical, it's *perfectly* in line with their worldview.

Brutal self-own from this conservative "satire" site depicting a "normal conservative man's home" as having an enormous bookshelf that is completely empty except for a flag, a photo of Ronald Reagan, a Bible, and a LITERAL PILE OF GUNS ON THE FLOOR 😂
@TheBabylonBee A million Daily Show writers using a million typewriters for a million days could NEVER own the right as hard as the right owns itself
@TheBabylonBee A heartfelt thank you to the conservatives in my mentions demanding "How is this a self-own??? DEBATE MEEEEEE" for proving my point 😂

I've been saying all along that if you think they're gonna stop with undocumented immigrants or non-citizens from "certain countries" then you're just being naïve. Well, here we are. #IStandWithIlhan
The President of the United States inciting an angry white mob calling for the illegal deportation of a naturalized U.S. citizen -- a Muslim woman of color 𝙬𝙝𝙤 𝙝𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙗𝙚 𝙖 𝙢𝙚𝙢𝙗𝙚𝙧 𝙤𝙛 𝘾𝙤𝙣𝙜𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙨 -- should make it clear enough where this is going.
The silence from so-called "good Republicans" doing nothing abt the white supremacist rot at the core of their party (plus centrist Dems who fell all over themselves to denounce @IlhanMN a few months ago) should give you an idea how much injustice we're capable of rationalizing.
