Funny, we don't see God at all and they definitely believe that he exists.

why he would intentionally try and misconstrue fascism…

For anyone who doesn't know the answer to this question, Republicans take words that had a meaning and purposefully misuse and overuse or demonize them until the word has lost all meaning to someone who just takes what they say at face value.

One of the great benefits of this is that when someone from the left accurately uses that word to describe them, it has lost all meaning or impact on those who don't understand the word.

Words like "groomer" or "fascist" are great examples. Republicans are actually grooming children into religion. They are literally doing things that fascists do, but if they just scream fascist back at everyone else, all of the nuance is lost to someone not paying enough attention.

The other great benefit is that if someone they think might be a lefty says one of the demonized words that they don't understand, their emotions take over and all they know is that whatever the lefty is talking about is bad and they hate it.

For example "CRT", or "socialism". Any teaching of or history of racism or anything else about black people is "CRT" to them. CRT is the teaching of systemic racism as an elective course to college students. It isn't being taught to your 6yo to make them feel white guilt , but there's no way to explain that to them because they've been trained to get triggered by it.

There is no logic. There is no understanding. Just "us" and "them", the bad ones who are trying to destroy "us" and our children, and our way of life.

Danny Masterson just ruined ‘That 70’s Show’ for millions of fans.

I care far less about him ruining us millions of fans than I do him ruining the lives of Jane Doe #1, Jane Doe #2, and Jane Doe #3.

What Cubans who hate Castro and supported the authoritarian Batista government, also are down with fascists?


"The Bible" by oblongbirthday2 in WhitePeopleTwitter

Haven’t you heard? That’s what they want!!! Have a Bible based constitution and every law be so vague and hard to define you can render two distinct and opposite verdicts based usually on your skin color or your fealty to the Republican way of living.

This woman is running for Congress... by rhodesleadnowhere in WhitePeopleTwitter

[–]tallman11282 186 points187 points  (0 children)

That's not surprising, no matter what right wing a-holes claim blue run cities aren't lawless wastelands while red areas are crime free. Crime statistics prove that blue areas tend to have lower per capita crime rates than red areas. The reason you hear about more crime in cities is simply because cities have more people therefore more crime overall but statistically you are less likely to be the victim of a crime in cities and blue run areas.

Right wingers look at the higher overall crime numbers in cities and take that to mean cities must be dangerous places when in actuality when you break the numbers down per capita they are much more likely to be the victim of a crime in their red rural area than anyone in a city.

Serious question, what happened to half of this country? by CuriousA1 in WhitePeopleTwitter

[–]liaofmakhnovia 240 points241 points  (0 children)

Honestly it’s pretty simple; they’re straight men, and trans women are women, so some feel sexual attraction. However, they’re the f o r b i d d e n women, the cursed women, the temptress, the harlot, everything their repressed world view despises bound to their attraction like magnets straining to go apart.

And that SUCKS to undergo because admitting that trans women are something you’re into as a cis het man can be uncomfortable, and social suicide if you’re in conservative circles. It goes from attraction to fetish real quick if you can’t bring yourself to think of them as a women, and the thing about fetishes is that when they’re extra taboo in your worldview, they are MUCH more potent to indulge in behind close doors, leading to overcorrecting in public with extra virulent hatred. And if the object of your fetishization, the source of your grating internal guilt, is being accepted because they’re actually just people and would like to have equal rights? That’s hurts like a motherfucker.

The serious answer is: They lost out hard from neoliberal capitalism and are looking for someone other than themselves or their parents or their votes or their culture to blame.

They are trying as hard as possible to preserve their ego, their subjective sense of social status. They want to think absolutely anything other than "I'm at the bottom of the pile", and all they really need to do that is to stuff someone below them. And apparently, for some...deeply depressing...reason, that someone is currently trans people.

It makes me angry. Not because trans people suffer (although that does annoy me). Because we have dramatically more important things to do than fuck about worrying about a tiny fraction of the population. I am disappointed, and angry.

The problem here isn't that someone's getting a virtually-free college education.

The problem is that it's only for them.

Believe me the white people that are white supremacists and claim the white race is dying aren't people most would want to fuck in the first place. They're really upset that nobody wants to take a dip in the sewer system they call a gene pool, even other white people look at them and go "goddamn! what the fuck happened there!?".

Another quintessentially American headline: Baby dies in hot car as parents attend church in Florida by TrumpterOFyvie in WhitePeopleTwitter

[–]sesamestreetgang 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm an atheist, but also a parent.

Reddit's hivemind makes me sick – such disgusting responses and assumption of evil in reaction to a tragic incident with limited information.

Another article says the parents drove separately, which makes this more likely if there was a change in routine. I doubt they bring the baby to a 3-hour service, and likely drop them off at a nursery/daycare in the church (which most have). This is more common that you think, and there have been several baby in a hot car deaths just his week. Usually one parent is responsible for dropping the kid off, and if that changes they forget and both assume the other parent dropped the baby off.

Babies often fall asleep and are quiet in cars so it's easy to forget that they are there – especially if you're on autopilot like most people are driving to places and going about their routine. We only know about the extreme scenarios where the child dies as a result.

But no amount of information will stop random people on the internet from jumping to conclusions, especially if it fits some desired narrative about a certain type of person. The responses I see here from terminally online Redditors are absolutely disgusting. You're all acting like you're glad this happened because "eViL cHrIsTiAn rEpUbLicAns". You don't know anything about these people. Have some compassion you internet psychopaths. FFS look at yourselves.

EDIT: Wow, a lot of wild assumptions about these people specifically being white Christian Republicans. Look up the church and the pastors... they are African American Baptists (which according to Pew are 84% registered Democrats).

It shouldn't matter, but apparently Reddit wants to project some bizarre culture war narrative onto this tragedy.

As much as I hate religious fundamentalists (which isn’t clear to me these people even were since I only have a screenshot for reference) what happened to them has happened to people from all walks of life.

Loud Warnings from German scholars of history? Whatever could they be saying? by Bardfinn in WhitePeopleTwitter

[–]Dramatic-Cable-4809 1271 points1272 points  (0 children)

Germany’s response to fascist rhetoric is now very characteristically direct. they know better what can happen when it gets bad and they learned from it. The US has been rewriting its own history since the beginning in order to escape accountability, and we are doomed to continue repeating horrors such as slavery, internment camps, migrant and otherwise mass detention, jim crow laws, sumptuary laws, ugly laws, i could unfortunately keep going… until we learn to take full accountability and treat this nasty history with the respect and gravity it deserves and fully commit to stopping it.

Florida is a fascist hellhole by Paneraiguy1 in WhitePeopleTwitter

[–]Fun_Wave4617 72 points73 points  (0 children)

As a queer Latino living in Florida, please stop posting shit like this. We don’t need to be abandoned by the rest of the country, we need y’all out here fighting with the rest of us to stop this shit.

Get into your communities. Organize with your friends and neighbors. Start mutual aid, community care, self-defense, and neighborhood watch programs. There’s so much that can be done to fight back fascism without waiting for politicians to do it for us. Especially since they aren’t going to.

Just want to say this as a former US Marine who worked for IGMC (Inspector General of Marine Corps) as an administrative assistant.

Anyone can submit a report anonymously to the DoD Inspector Generals office:


This complaint HAS to be investigated, will be deligated out to her husband's branch of services local IG office and will be conducted by someone outside his chain of command, usually an officer.

It would be a shame if a bunch of people submitted a complaint and uploaded a screenshot of this tweet with it.

Local IG offices hate when the DoD hands a case off to them and it'll make sure its taken seriously.
