I'd love to watch a movie or short on that topic!

I'd watch the heck out of that!




 

WTAF?!?!?

Then the police decided they’d seen enough.

Okay, this is fucked up.

Would be pretty much the same here but we are not an example.
 
I'm waiting to hear the facts behind this, but on the face of it, this is simply unacceptable and morally repugnant. And yet so many people are just blah about these atrocities. Something tells me we're going to see a new world order in the not too distant future. The authoritarian element in society is going to be taken down, one way or another.

 

I was told growing up the Nazis burned books. That was bad. They never told me most of the books were Jewish Communism works and trans research. My parents didn't know that. Pretty sure their tune would have been changed had they known that.

 

People who freak out about statues being removed would be totally cool with heretical book burning, where you get real knowledge about history.

[bookmark=https://twitter.com/SethCotlar/status/1277255479782039553]Returning to this thread on a morning when President Trump retweeted one of his followers yelling "White Power," I'm reminded of this moving passage from @BenjaminHett's book "The Death of Democracy."

This is something I get here in Poland, from many otherwise reasonable people including my own father: "Oh but this is a completely different thing, Kaczyński is a patriot and he is only trying to remove foreign influence and no way he could destroy democracy and institute totalitarian regime" (while he is destroying democracy and instituting a totalitarian regime).
 
Same here.

It always goes the same way.
 
This is exactly the thing Rev. Niemöller wrote about:
First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

People do not believe terrible things are happening - as long as those things do not happen to them. And then, it is too late.

 

Amerika.

 

Wow.

[bookmark=https://twitter.com/SethCotlar/status/1277106596099710978]There’s a distinctive way that right wingers broach issues of race that is captured well in this scene from The Plot Against America. The point is not to get “the other” to vote for you. It’s to give permission to “decent” white people to vote for leaders they know are indecent.

Sensors detect rise in # particles on Baltic Sea, global body says

One of its stations scanning the air for radionuclides - telltale # particles that can be carried long distances by the wind - detected unusually high levels of three radionuclides earlier this week: caesium-134, caesium-137 and ruthenium-103.

The only reason protests in the US "stopped" is because cops stopped tear-gassing white people.
All the underlying issues of institutionalized racism, militarization (physical and psychological) of police, a white supremacist movement openly trying to "ignite the race war," and a political right increasingly adopting fascism as procedure, are still there. Only the tear gas changed.
Let that sink in.

Took em long enough
Among working-class men and women, female voters are more critical of Trump’s handling of the pandemic, men are more eager to reopen the economy. A poll in May found that 71% of white men without a college degree approved of Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, compared with 51% of women without a degree.

Asked whether it was more important to control the virus or open the economy, 57% of white noncollege women gave priority to controlling the virus even if it hurts the economy, while 59% of working-class men said restarting the economy was more important, even if it hurt efforts to control the virus.
