Those have ALWAYS been the options but unfortunately the White American voting majority has routinely & by default chosen a combination of 1, 2 & 4 b/c either way that keeps the multicultural Democratic base from making progress towards diversity, equity, inclusion & justice (3). @Vladdiefan TBH I perceive this as y’all trying to somehow catch me/us in a pragmatism hunger games snafu gauntlet as if *we’re* the voters with a pattern of actually doing that. What y’all should be asking is “how can White PA Ds make Fetterman palatable to White voters in PA?”

Explain how the alt left thinks repeatedly choosing a natural born *Independent* alienator (who masquerades as a D when convenient) to represent all of *their* socialist hopes and dreams in a Democratic primary but who goes on to become radioactive in the general is a good thing. Seriously the level of magical thinking and mental gymnastics folk are doing just to evade confrontation and exploration of the simultaneously batshit crazy AND exponentially racially charged political climate we’re ALL facing in the ‘22 midterms is viscerally RIDICULOUS.

For the viewing audience at home I’d just like to add that MUCH of the reason we have to keep explaining the Southern Strategy & subsequent realignment of the D & R parties post Civil Rights Movement is b/c so many of y’all refuse to face facts that racism isn’t just Southern. 🙃 Without fail it’s usually the East/West coast and Midwest folk who’ve never lived in the South and never had family/friends from the South who don’t get that the bigots y’all have up and over there AIN’T that much different than the ones we have here, they’re just more dishonest.

Payton Gendron is an *American problem*. Stop pretending these White domestic terrorists have to look outside our borders for inspiration/marching orders when all they have to do is watch Fox “news” & follow Republicans on social media. #ThisIsAmerikkka #WhereWereTheyRadicalized This train is NEVER late. 😒 #Buffalo

The student loan forgiveness “debate” feels like yet another exercise in alt left performative privilege to me b/c the loudest voices screaming for mitigation don’t center the demographic *most detrimentally impacted* by student loan debt/wealth inequity.… “…the gap in student debt held by Black and White borrowers grows by 6.8% each year. As a result, Black young adults hold 10.4% less wealth on average than their White counterparts due to student debt.”

They created a new, chaotic era of politics/democracy by allowing Trump/the GOP to govern by tweet. MTG, DT & ALL other elected nuisances who get booted from Twitter for inciting fascism created the precedent for their own exclusion, not just from social media but public office. If social media’s really supposed to be a free market of ideas and conservatives really love free markets as much as they say they do, they should be able to let the chips fall where they may, but they can’t/won’t b/c they’re still butthurt that fascism lost the 2020 election. 🥴

FYI, this is basically the same argument made by segregationists in opposition to the integration of public schools post Brown v. Board. The GOP knows its bigoted base has a muscle memory for despising the mitigating hand of the federal government & public school system. #JimCrow Also it’s no coincidence that they’re stirring up a shit storm about CRT, LGBTQ, BLM and abortion simultaneously. They wage a culture war on every front possible b/c hatred and oppression of marginalized groups is what unifies Republican voters to GOTV. #SouthernStrategy101👺🤡👹

By all means I’m a Black Texas Democrat so I could literally write the book on national D neglect of not only Texas Democrats but Democrats in EVERY “former” Confederacy, current Jim Crow, “red”/purple state. We don’t take our ball and go home, we don’t boo louder than we #VOTE. No, this is the thing. If a Black woman descendant of Jim Crow survivors who’s well steeped in the community organizing tricks of the trade that have been passed down since slavery to the most reliable Democratic voting bloc in American history isn’t apathetic, why are y’all?

I love how folk (mostly White) on the left want whole ass gigantic mountains, the heavens & the 🌍 to be moved to expedite the prosecution of Trump’s cabal but when we asked y’all to police your White peeps away from voting for him in the 1st place, y’all couldn’t be bothered. 😒 We’ve literally been warning y’all that this shit was a Klan kleptocracy disaster just waiting to happen for not just years or decades, but CENTURIES. Y’all’s sense of urgency & justice is still hampered by your myopic privilege so you fail to realize that we’re already TOO LATE.

The GOP better damn well hope & pray Clarence Thomas is “just” hiding from his dumpster fire of a wife’s text message treason because the way the actuarial tables and his karma are set up… 🥴 “Just” hiding takes the lead…

Reminder: the word abortion does not appear in the Bible. Since we’re on the subject of Republican hypocrisy/misogyny/racism/homophobia/transphobia (and other assorted SCOTUS confirmation bullshit), here’s a throwback to the Keg Stand Kavanaugh tantrums they tolerated without uttering a single objection. 🧾 #KlanBehavior #WeBeenKnew

It might be unpopular but it’s also true that the EXACT same nuance is required to understand why the Black American voting majority enthusiastically supported both the “crime bill” in 1994 AND Bill & Hillary Clinton from the 90s until now. Feels like I’ve mentioned this blindspot umpteen times before, but here it goes again for the nosebleed seats. People need to understand that “defund the police” rhetoric on the far left inevitably catalyzes White fearmongering about Black “lawlessness” on the far right. 🙃

Thread of 🔥 Alert 🚨💣🕯🚀🔔 The thing that’s always struck me about this (not only as a Black woman but also as a psychiatrist IRL who’s literally tasked with helping people cope with stress, illness and the ups & downs of life) is the Black woman savior complex of it all. It’s subconscious but ubiquitous.

Except for all intents/purposes, VA *was* TX not too long ago. The 2021 Gubernatorial election set back over a decade of hard-won progress by VA Democrats. It can happen in ANY historically or recently “blue” state at the drop of a dime, if enough White voters DEFECT/vote GOP. 🥴 ImageImageImageImage How White Women, Stockholm Syndrome, and the Southern Strategy Propelled Republicans to Victory In Virginia | via @docrocktex26 #MAGAWomen #SouthernStrategy101 #Gilead 👹

Adding this here b/c it’s really important that we also recognize how the toxic/violent masculinization of GOP women voters also extends to #MAGAWoman elected officials. They’ve created an army of Ashli Babbitts who aid/abet the radicalization of their menfolk & themselves. 👹🤡 By now we’ve seen too many GOP/GOP adjacent mothers/wives/girlfriends either completely “overlook” the extremism in their midst or actively enable and facilitate the obstinance/defiance and evasion of consequences that leads to White, right wing domestic terrorism. #VanillaISIS
