Congress passed the "stimulus" bill, it includes a broad and vauge change to internet law that makes it now a FELONY to violate copyrights via piracy or other reduplication, such as memes.
Yes, this bill does go after people who pirate music and movies, but since basically all memes include *some* copyrighted content of *some* kind, and the bill is worded so broadly, and literally everyone on the internet is exposed to memes in some way or another, the government just gave itself the power to selectively throw whoever they want in federal prison at any given moment.
Oh but we got $600 of our own dollars given back to us so this is fine, right??!?!

1)The gop are as utterly inept as we think and are fine with killing off most of their voters.
2) They know they won’t need democracy much longer, so who cares about votes?

Liberals/progressives make the best anti-leftist/anti-revolutionary propaganda through film and series, because instead of them portraying a leftist as this obvious, unambiguous evil, they will humanize them. They do this by portraying them as well intentioned, or partly, at least, and show other likable qualities we can admire or empathize with, but then call them "misguided," "naive," and "dangerous," and say that their means don't justify the ends. The latter being something they successfully do usually by having a charismatic leftist leader slowly reveal themselves to be recklessly sacrificial, or bloodthirsty and egotistical. Their point being to try to convey revolution as something derived ultimately from fanaticism or militant tribalism, and to try to push that reform is the middle ground between complacency and revolution; and that we should stick with the devil we know: capitalism, and try to reform it. All so we can keep this ongoing cycle of capitalism regulating and deregulating itself, with endless war, and endless exploitation, until the very rich rule over a completely dystopian Earth that is no longer even habitable for the majority of us.

Jorge Gonzalez, suffered a broken neck, and a compressed spine at the hands of 3 sheriff deputies in Texas. He couldn't even hold his head up for this mugshot...so they had to hold it up for him. They actually thought the mugshot was more important than a hospital visit.
After a deputy tripped him he hit his face hard and went unconscious. They tased him couple of times “to wake him up”.
He was left paralyzed neck down, went through a series of surgeries, and was in ICU on the ventilator for over a month after the arrest.
According to the hospital he went over 26 hours in Hidalgo County jail without necessary medical attention that could have saved his life.

Rahm Emanuel covered up the police murder of Laquan McDonald, he closed FIFTY!!!! schools in Black-majority communities, closed half of Chicago's mental health clinics, and libs are seriously like "now isn't the time to talk about it," when this motherfucker is being considered for the Biden administration. PATHETIC

while (thankfully) trump doesn’t have the power to delay the election, the fact that he wants to should terrify every american to their core. there are two choices on the ballot this november: democracy and fascism. that’s it. that’s the choice. i don’t give a shit how you feel about biden. you have to vote for him anyway. vote blue down ballot. the constitution literally might not survive a second trump term.
if you don’t vote for biden, you are complicit in everything trump does going forward. a vote for a third party candidate is a vote for trump. a joke write-in is a vote for trump. staying home is a vote for trump. you have to vote for biden even if you don’t live in a swing state. we have to have a large enough margin of victory that it’s harder for trump to contest the results. you have to vote.
democracy or fascism. that’s the choice.

THIS is living proof of what self ID laws do to women. Men who know they'll get fucked up in male prisons "identify" as women to avoid it.
They know they'll have power in women's prisons. And look how these news outlets bend over backwards to call that degenerate a woman.
I'm dying to know how liberals will navigate between complaining about Islamophobia and transphobia.
