Let's review the power grab being done by the GOP right now. It is a lot more than the attack on voting rights.

We all know about the 400 bills trying to make it harder to vote. But it's much deeper than that.
motherjones.com/politics/2021/…
There are also more than 100 bills targeting the right to protest, in direct response to the civil rights protests that have swept the country over the last year. pen.org/closing-ranks-…
Then there is also an attack on direct democracy, with Republicans targeting the ballot initiatives, a tool used by citizens to enact laws that their state refuses to enact. nytimes.com/2021/05/22/us/…

New videos from the insurection have been released.

Everyday this gets more insane.

They came WITH pepper spray.

So much for backing the blue.

They made it INTO the tunnels.
He brought a shield. Just in case they started shooting.....

Ya know, 4 years ago I was horrified by the election of Donald Trump. I was pissed off and angry.

So I grabbed my pink pussy hat and took to the streets. It was much larger than the angry Insurrection mob. It encompassed hundreds of cities in every state.

Not one arrest. 1/
Instead of storming the Capitol. We fucking organized. It started with Resist Trump Tuesdays at our Senators office.

Then we organized the March for Truth.

We organized to protest the family separations.

We organized around candidates that we supported. 2/
The Resistance was in every state, blue and red. We knocked doors, we called our reps en mass, we did dozens of protests, from signs over the freeway, to die in's at Senate offices. 3/

I have a #Christmas2020 story for @RepChrisStewart and @SenMikeLee -who voted against #COVIDReliefPackage

My friend posted this. Within 30 minutes, she had gotten over 20 replies. She chose a man who had 3 young daughters. She was a bit nervous though.
He was a very muscular man, covered in tattoos. (Note, my friend can be afraid of her own shadow at times, but she has a heart of gold).

Since she has 2 granddaughters, she decided to see if she could find some other things to go with the dream tents.
She found some stuffed animals, some lego sets and a few other things. She put the items in a box and delivered them. When she arrived, she told this man to go look through the box and he could have whatever he wanted.

I want to share a story that happened tonight. I met a friend at another friend's house. As we pulled up, 2 little girls were skate boarding. They were probably about 10 years old. One of the girls feel pretty hard. (She is black).

Of course, we immediately went to her.
That is what you do, when you see a child get hurt. We asked if she was ok. She said yes, despite the fact she was bleeding. As I got closer, she scooted backwards and asked if I was "one of the good guys".

I assured her that I just wanted to help.
We had some supplies in the car, and I could see that all the skin had been b taken off the knuckle of one hand.

Finally, after about 5 minutes, she let me look at her hand. We were able to get it cleaned up and sent her home to get the injury washed out better.

This is the man that will fight for the people of Georgia. He will fight for all of us.
