“The more dangerous truth is that a not-insignificant portion of the GOP’s Trumpian base actually appears to believe that the violent mob was justified in its effort to disrupt Congress as it conducted its pro forma tally of the electoral votes that made Joe Biden the 46th president.”….Washington Post.
And so it goes, the Republican Party covering up an attack on Congress.
And the most concerning to this is that it was most certainly an effort to appeal to the demographic that led the insurrection.
This is inexcusable.
And the irony! Dick Nixon’s party is now the party of right…
The Human Propensity to Practice the Banality of Evil
This is a great article. I am on the Board of an HOA,
I know I know the most thankless job on the planet.
But right now we are in an election cycle, with an opposition that is blaming the current board for the suffering of the pandemic.
Specifically, we had to close the pools early last fall, because of the pandemic and the users of the pools not following pandemic guidelines.
So an issue fell into the hands of divisive homeowners, who are. blatantly using the “pool issue” which is…
Once again this fascist pundit screeches. Once again Stanford University sponsors a corrupt Hoover Fellow, whose racism fairly oozes from his pores.
Fascists love to cast blame everywhere but to themselves.
The overwhelming evidence that a genocide was waged against both Native and African Americans is lost in the clever play on words.
Resiliency is depicted as being destroyed in white people because of the scholarship of those who have discovered the truth of cultural annihilation; in everything from the slave trade to boarding schools.
I graduated from Stanford. I know Stanford pretty well. In 1965 is was a bastion…
“Floridafication is being driven by those two familiar forces — man-made climate change and globalization — stirred together into a cocktail all the state’s own.” Washington Post
The Pandemic is not new, nor will it stop. There are two reasons for this…one is globalization and human intrusion into animal habitat; the other is global warming, that exacerbates the migration of endangered species pushing closer to humankind.
This is the reality of the 21st Century in the disaster of global climate change.
In the past 100 years the amount of C02 had exploded in a greenhouse effect. This warming through…
The Sacramento Bee got this story wrong for more than 100 years. This is our plan to change that
The Sacramento Bee…I can remember in the day when the Sacramento Union was a very robust companion and politically opposite of the Sacramento Bee.
They did however share one ingredient, they were both racist.
Why did we know that, because I was working in Del Paso Heights, coaching and teaching. The complaint was multi-faceted, mostly revolving around the civil rights demonstrations that was going on plus complaints that the Bee was not publishing. …
They were part of something where people died,” Craighead said in an interview. “They were at our Black Lives Matter protest to make sure it was peaceful, but then they joined in something that was anything but peaceful. It felt like a slap in the face.”
January 6,2021 a day that will live in infamy. The Trump and fascist followers attacked in a direct effort to overthrow a legitimate election.
Not only was the election legitimate, many court cases seeking redress for a made up “Steal” failed. …
The Banality of Evil……
And it goes on and on and on…now our Asian cultural brothers and sisters are targeted by the former president, remember his blame China for the pandemic bullshit…it wasn’t China it was global warming and human error in getting too close to wild animals that cause this horrible outbreak.
Climate scientist have been warning about this for years…and most of us, getting in our trucks and R.V.s and burning up gasoline as fast as we can, have NOT LISTENED!
Trump and his fascist followers, propagated another Big Lie, blaming China for the pandemic.
This was yet…
The main aspects of fascism are led usually by sexism, caused by masculine fears that they are losing their status, either by losing jobs or losing status in the culture. The rage of a man, and domestic violence is at record levels during the Presidency of Trump for a reason….read on.
Nazi Germany is a perfect example, it swung to fascism for two hideous reasons: 1. An entire generation of young men had literally been slaughtered in the trench warfare that was insane, literally charge after charge into artillery and machine guns; the weapons of war were way ahead of…
Why We Fight
This is why we take courses in racism and prejudice, the very few who have the courage to look Amerikkka straight in the eye. This is why we cannot stop, we may have to fight another Civil War!
We have to one day renounce this behavior, but we won’t.
So the beautiful verses that this poet laureate uttered, the most moving part of a hopeful inauguration, were dashed by a security racist racial profiling.
We don’t know who the security guard was, they may be black for all we know. …
These stories breaks the hearts of those who espouse democracies.
Fascism is so insidious , it strikes the under educated or uneducated.
Limbaugh preyed on the political naive castes; who had it made they thought after WWII, until the recessions hit, the lay offs hit, the timber resource was cut down, and of course the never ending warmth of global warming.
This led to a mass migration from equatorial regions; increased migration to avoid the heat of global climate change. This migration was seized by demagogues around the world, to push for totalitarian fascism.
There are defined aspects to…
