The Republican Party’s flirtation with pro-worker politics is both absurd and clever. It allows them to claim that racial and gender diversity and inclusion (not to mention anti-racism and anti-sexism) are somehow ploys of the woke—read ‘Jewish’—elites to rob the ordinary (white) person of what they supposedly earned through hard work. Further, efforts to oppose racism, even symbolically, are portrayed as an assault on “American” history and the white population—the victims of a woke agenda that oppresses “straight white men.”
We must be clear. This illusory pro-worker conservatism has nothing to do with labor rights, income inequality, occupational health and safety, or progressive economic development—urgent issues that confront workers every day. Rather, it is an opportunistic attempt to create a united front of the supposedly productive classes and fractions of American society against the supposedly parasitic forces—both elites and “Others” ( foreign-born and domestic)—that are draining the country of its national strength.

Why it matters: The AUKUS partnership. . . would help Australia build nuclear-powered submarines with American technology.
Innocent dogs were killed to keep you home.
Man jailed for months for having people work on his home.
Man arrested and strip searched for going for a walk.
Citizens banned from leaving the country.
Police confiscating alcohol from private homes.
Police prevent people from watching a funeral from THEIR CARS.
Police given power to monitor and take over private social media.
You'd be forgiven for thinking these headlines were ripped out of Hitler's nazi Germany, Kim Jong-il's North Korea, Stalinist Russia, or Maoist or Jinping's China. But no, welcome to Australian fascism folks.
This signing of the security agreement was the perfect opportunity for American politicians to address the fascism and incredible human rights violations happening in Australia.
That democrats were silent isn't a surprise. They're busy planting fascism here at home. Republican's refusal to grind the process to a halt or raise objections in the name of protecting and defending freedom and liberty isn't surprising anymore either, but it's incredibly disappointing.
Countering the spread of communism and bringing communist bastards to heel is long overdue. Making deals with fascists devils is probably not the best way to get us there.
MAKE AMERICA AN UNAPOLOGETIC DEFENDER OF LIBERTY AGAIN. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Abortion has now effectively been banned in Texas.
Supreme Court failed to block the 6-week abortion ban. Many people don't even know they're pregnant by then. They will carry pregnancies against their will. People will die.
And that's not all. This law also allows people to sue anyone they believe is providing or assisting someone in getting an abortion, like Uber drivers. The law will also award the people who report with at least $10,000.
A fucking bounty on pregnant people.
Fuck the Supreme Court.
Fuck Susan Collins.
Fuck Trump voters.
And fuck the pathetic women who defend this shit.
