if you're white and you use the internet, you have a duty to ensure that the spaces you are in are not a safe space for white supremacists. no, "oh but I like this person and they've never done anything in MY group" -- listen to us. listen to what we have to say. report people to the mods or if it's an ongoing problem, *leave the fucking group and let people know why you're leaving*.

make mods explain their decisions. make it uncomfortable. make it weird.

it's the LEAST you can do.

you don't get to campaign on a return to honesty and integrity and then immediately cut corners on your promises to voters without facing some consequence, sorry!

dems won by turning out people who normally don't / can't vote, and they can now either

a. fulfill their promises to those voters, encouraging them to continue voting

b. not do that, reaffirming their belief that voting is meaningless

imo one of these is a bit smarter!!!

its cool when violence happens to fascists and its funny when fascists do violence to each other

Friendly reminder that the only reason this adrenochrome demon has a career in politics is because a former cop named Dan White murdered her political opponent

At least 26 law enforcement agents attended the Trump rally on January 6, and several former LEOs joined them or made statements in support. My tracker for cop participation is live at @theappeal@twitter.com:

Tl;dr - the difference between "dissent" and "bitching" is whether or not anyone is listening and brother, they ain't.

Now if you started organizing a socialist revolution on Twitter, they'll crack you so hard your head will fall off - but dawg, that was true on January 5th too. And it has been true for us, for the left, for a very, very long time.

Let fascists cry for fascists, when both of my enemies fight, it's not my fucking problem.

@AnarchoNinaWrites Outfits like Parler and OANN have rich-ass fascists with truckloads of cash to pour into them, and our side doesn't. They have a major cable news network blasting their shit all over the place for them, and we don't.

So don't even START with the goddamn "frEe SpEeCh" horseshit.

...and the phrase "devil's advocate" is one of my top ten "slowly I turned" trigger phrases these days. Real lampshade kinda shit — "If I might play Devil's Advocate for a moment..." ...oh, christ.

@AnarchoNinaWrites Anyone who thinks this shit started 4 years ago needs to go run some searches on "Palmer Raids", Eugene Debs and "The Masses" Magazine, and quit crying over Parler being bounced off their host.

as much as I love donating to independent journalists, I'd love even more to be able to donate to those trying to synthesize relevant political analysis

Hellsite composing a collective letter to Ted Kaczynski, 2021

So, now that I don't have a Bird site account, I guess you folks are stuck with the emo panic updates - how's it going? Not well. What can I do about it? Apparently nothing:

If you screw-up, you lose your job. If the Capitalist screws up, it's still you who loses the job.... Better that we the Proletariat then take ownership of our own fate.

Remember the greatest success of the Farmers Agitation is that everyday someone new asks the question, "...but why is Modi and BJP so pro-Adani and Ambani?"

I really wonder how well social media juggernauts like Twitter & Facebook will continue to be dominant as they purge everything that's too controversial to publish in Readers' Digest or the TV Guide.

(Obviously Nazis will be granted greater tolerance, as always, but the point stands.)

"Post-truth is pre-fascism, and Trump has been our post-truth president. When we give up on truth, we concede power to those with the wealth and charisma to create spectacle in its place."
