Can anyone tell me why the right is so mad because they can't see a penis?

Here's a guy with Saturday Night Fever.

This should be comical. Hollywood has-been James Woods has cobbled together a unique theory as to why he hasn’t worked since 2013: it’s the Democratic party’s fault — specifically the “Democratic Party-Big Tech alliance” for banning him from Twitter and all he did was post photos of Hunter Biden’s penis.

Woods is madder than hell and he plans to sue. He told Tucker Carlson Friday night, “I can guarantee you one thing more than anything else you’ll ever hear in your life: I will be getting a lawyer. I will be suing the Democratic National Committee no matter what.”

Go right ahead. Just know that the DNC will bring Twitter in and then you’ll be suing your right-wing hero Elon Musk.

He's not wrong.
~~~~~~~~

Ok, I don’t talk much about this:
I grew up hearing the stories about the rise of the Nazis. I grew up hearing about how civil liberties were eroded until fascists had control. I grew up next door to a bunker with shrapnel stuck in it from allied bombs because of the Nazis.🧵 Image

I grew up knowing that evacuation from the excavation of unexploded ordnance from the Second World War was just a fact of life.

I grew up to the stories of atrocities and deprivation that were a direct result of the rise of fascism in my home country.

I grew up to the stories from family who watched cities burn from white phosphorous. I grew up with stories of most of my family having been killed on the eastern front or near Berlin during the last days of the Nazi regime.

I grew up hearing about denazification and resettlement. To stories of the horrors of the Nazis and the atrocities of the Red Army who came as, “liberators,” afterwards.

Stories of my grandmother being 8 years old catching cats on the roof post war, just so the family could eat.

I grew up to the stories of how my family had its own small part that it played, and how that part was - to our everlasting shame - with the National Socialists.

All of those stories came down to a single point:
It was never the will of the majority. It was the will of a hateful minority that would stop at nothing to grab power. They would lie, they would twist truths, and they would do whatever it took to take and keep power.

Eventually, they used a manufactured pretense (the burning of the Reichstag) to take power. They knew it was a lie. Most people knew it was a lie.
But they told it anyways, and the majority of their supporters - hate filled, paranoid, clinging to a mythologized past…

Those supporters bought into that lie and amplified it. And regular people - they just let it happened.
One day, Germany was a free nation. The next day… it was not.

So when I see a former president of the United States calling for the nullification of the constitution over lies, twisted truths, and things not related to our rights as people?

It brings me right back to the Reichstag Fire Decree:

“the following is decreed as a defensive measure against communist acts of violence endangering the state:

Sections… of the Constitution of the German Reich are suspended until further notice.”

Including, “… restrictions on personal liberty, on the right of free expression of opinion, including freedom of the press, on the right of assembly and the right of association…”

I’m not an alarmist. One obnoxious blowhard in Florida does not have the power to make that happen here over night. But what that asshole is calling for is the same thing that the Nazis called for, and we all know how that went. We all know the atrocities they committed.

What scares me is this:
There are millions of Americans who will welcome that assault on freedom. Maybe because they’re ignorant to the reality of the situation, or maybe because their hatred of other ideas is so intense, they would cut off their noses to spite their faces.

Those people vote. They will absolutely vote a fascist to power. Many of them even admit it.
They may be your friends, they may be your neighbors, they may be your family.
Many of them can’t be reasoned with anymore. They are fascists. Plain and simple.

They are the enemy.

They’ve already voted some of their own into power. They will try to vote in more. In local offices, in state offices, and nationally.

Until they have enough power to take away YOUR vote. All under a bullshit pretext.

Hunter Biden’s laptop and Twitter employees biases have as much bearing on the stability of your freedom as the burning of the Reichstag did on the freedoms of Germans in 1933.

Irrelevant - and completely relevant - all at once.

Fascism in America won’t target the Jewish community or PoC - at least not at first. They’ve announced for years what they’ll go after.
They’ll go after LGBTQIA+. They’ll go after women. When that enemy of theirs is gone, they will find another.

Anything to retain power.

So my thesis is this: You don’t get to sit on the sidelines anymore. You don’t get the luxury of not voting, of not engaging - you don’t get that anymore.

That’s fucking done.

You either show the fuck up when you’re needed and do what you have to - whether that’s to hold your nose and vote for the lesser of two evils, or to stand on the line to protect the most vulnerable in your community…

Or you do what so many Germans did in 1933 - pretend it’s not real and then 15 years later try to convince the world that you didn’t know what was happening. That you’re not to blame.

You choose to enable the fascists.

For me personally - it’s an easy choice. I’ll vote for the person who is less likely to cause us to fall into totalitarianism. I’ll stand on the line and breath teargas again in defense of our communities, and I’ll put on my armor yet again if a fight comes to my door.

You want to call yourself an anti-fascist?

Fascism is knocking at your door. It’s right there. It’s begging you to do NOTHING so that it can come in.

It wants you to argue, to infight, to backbite, to focus on anything that distracts you from what’s at your door.

You don’t get the high ground here anymore. You get in the dirt and you fucking fight.

Whatever revolution or social change you might dream of?

Fantasy.

You need to survive. You need to organize, and you need to defend.

You need to fight this now - while you still can.

Because if you don’t, then when they start spilling blood - and they will - that’s gonna be on your hands too.

My friend, I promise you; you don’t live in a real fascist state. Not yet. No matter what your agitprop or outrage de jour tells you.

But when it’s over - and it will be, because fascism cannot survive long term…

Those of us who actually fought it from the start and are lucky enough to remain?

We will never let you forget that YOU let this happen.

Oooph. This thing is doing numbers. I’m gonna mute it now and enjoy my day off. Thanks for the support and retweets.

And to the authoritarian simps that see this thread and just can’t help but pop off?

Please stay so so SO mad. 😘

Spreading known lies about election fraud over and over makes him either a traitor to his country (already proven on multiple accounts already), mentally ill or just another grift. Trump needs a 72hr mental health detainment.

What a f'ing piece of shit. Party above country, always.

Here's the NYTs take on it. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/12/04/us/politics/trump-constitution-republicans.html

I don't ever want to here any Republican ever talking about freedom again. What a bunch of dickheads.

They already have a bigger share of power in the USA's gov't than the Nazis did in Germany in 1933 when Hitler terrorized the elected President Hindenburg into appointing him Chancellor.

Treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere
, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and ...

Arguable, but it's time to call it what it looks like.

Think you guys need to skip to the death part quickly before the rabble gets traction
I would suggest you start at the top and work your way down.

Wonder if TFG would be ok with Biden calling for the suspension of the Constitution? You know, until we can sort all this election fraud out. Maybe while we're figure everything out, we can collect all the firearms from everyone, since, well, the 2A is suspended. Can't see how any Gopper would have a problem with that.

Harmeet Kaur Dhillon (3rd row down) raced with us some years ago on a Sydney 38 on SF Bay. She was a handy sailor and a pleasant person too.

I followed her FB posts in which she continuously railed against TFG as a deluded maniac. When, suddenly, he won the nomination, her posts changed to fawning admiration.

When he was elected, her posts were all about what a great man he was, and which fur coat to wear to the inauguration.

When I pointed out the dichotomy between her current and previous posts, I was summarily unfriended.

The hypocrisy is all-prevalent.

She's running for RNC Chair now. I remember the name from vanity lawsuits like Damore v Google and the Berkeley College Republicans vs Napolitano.

Wait that would be like the Jews saying to the Nazis just wait a cotton picking minute and no you don’t get to power grab before they literally got railroaded.
Checks, balances and taking power away from facist motherfuckers is what my father went to war over.
He’d be turning in his grave knowing history is repeating already.

Very interesting. She's a capable and intelligent woman, and one to watch. A good sailor too. Hold on, is she lurking or posting here? Is she... no it can't be possible... Dog 2.0? Aaaaahhh...!
If she has anything to do with Trump, she is either deluded or scamming. Regardless, ETTD.
