Anti-voting rhetoric will be the death of the left. Literally.
Not a single fucking Republican voted to protect roe. It was fucking overturned in the first place bc trump got three Supreme Court appointments.
Every fucking thing wrong in this country is almost certainly the result of Republicans being in power. In 2020, Texas cut half of the polling places in black neighborhoods, and doubled them in white ones, regardless of population. It was Republicans bitching about mail in voting, and constantly, constantly fearmonger about voter fraud. Literally, their platform is about making civil rights harder to practice.
Would you like to know why? It’s because Republican politicians know better than anyone that higher voter participation means higher republican loss.
But what do I see from the online left, champions of the oppressed?
“Voting doesn’t do anything, the parties are the same, the system is rigged, etc, etc”
Don’t sit here and tell me you give a fuck about marginalized people if you aren’t ready to march your ass to the voting booth and vote out the party actively stripping their rights away.
Protest, donate, community build, unionize, and vote, vote, vote.
By the time direct action is the only option, it will be too fucking late.
When you realize the Right is always screaming about Communism because they know Marx was right, and as things get worse, they're afraid the rest of us will notice.
(CNN) - A Michigan candidate for the US House backed by former President Donald Trump once railed against giving women the right to vote, arguing that America has "suffered" since women's suffrage.
John Gibbs, who defeated in the primary an incumbent Republican who had voted to impeach Trump, also made comments in the early 2000s praising an organization trying to repeal the 19th Amendment which also argued that women's suffrage had made the United States into a "totalitarian state."
Maybe I worry too much but it seems like governments around the world are turning super duper fascist-y.
It's tiring having a memory over 20 years
Dick Cheney very much also stole an election
after which he lied to launch a series of wars across the middle east
create new federal secret police in the DHS
unconstitutional domestic surveillance programs
terror watchlists, black sites where we tortured people never even charged with crimes
wars not sanctioned by congress displacing millions of civilians.
so glad to see he's being rehabilitated as a defender of democracy now though.
With everything going on I feel like I need to make my views clear and stand up for them. I am pro-life, pro gun, anti government handouts, and anti gay marriage. Socialism is destroying this country. AMERICA should always come FIRST. Not some other country. America! I’m a proud conservative and am tired of being attacked for my beliefs.
