https://twitter.com/docrocktex26/status/944269511376736256They’re gonna keep killing themselves with guns, drugs/alcohol & science denial and the folk they just elected will keep not giving a fuck. Their kids will remain uneducated, unmotivated & uncompetitive and the wages of Whiteness won’t be enough to sustain them or turn the tide.
https://twitter.com/docrocktex26/status/1149367961712566274The GOP’s had ample opportunity to throw Trump under the bus yet they refuse to do it b/c 1) they’re all partners in crime who are covering each other’s asses and 2) their base is too propagandized and rabid to back away from the ledge. Faced with facts, they retreat to fantasy.
https://twitter.com/renewamerica/status/1553071041899003905Ever notice how they wait til the last 3-9 months before an election to decide they’re suddenly so dissatisfied with the menu options that they’d risk an alternative path that’ll most assuredly result in further dystopian bullshit at the hands of the GOP/White voting majority? 🧐
https://twitter.com/grayfactor/status/1548126524913487873IOW, instead of holding the White voting majority accountable for repeatedly electing Republicans thereby enabling austerity/patriarchy/theocracy/fascism, they blame the Democratic Party for not being powerful enough to undo the damage without ANY help from the White majority.
https://twitter.com/vladdiefan/status/1527053501947334657@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?”
https://twitter.com/stfupdonny/status/1526937800632725504Seriously 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.
https://twitter.com/docrocktex26/status/1526573161923461121Without 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.

https://twitter.com/docrocktex26/status/1518952341256704000If 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. 🥴

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👺🤡👹
https://twitter.com/smenor/status/1510580133752557569No, 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?

https://twitter.com/MarshaBlackburn/status/1506448028525371400Since 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
https://twitter.com/qjames/status/1498883242492977154Feels 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. 🙃

https://twitter.com/dunhillpage/status/1495322580001173507The 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.
