    MTG says controversial things all the time so you have to get used to it. She's the right wing version of AOC, they both just spout out nonsense and then their opponents dramatize everything they say.

    I mean I can trace my Ancestry back to the friggin' Mayflower. If that ain't 'American' enough for these chucklefucks then that's their problem.

    White supremacism is the same as bog-standard social-democrat positions?

    You're absolutely out to fucking lunch.

    Apparently it was too on-the-nose even for the Republican caucus.

    She's got her headlines and the rather explicit whistle towards the racists, mission accomplished. I just hope it hurts the GOP more overall to balance it out, it is the party of lunatics nowadays.

    Really goes to show how radicalized the right-wing are in the US.

    Like, AOC would fit in just fine with the Liberal Party here in Canada. Who are decidedly centrist. I think she'd be a better fit than with the NDP, though it's borderline. And the NDP are pretty mid-left soc-dems at the most extreme anyway.

    That anyone in the USA thinks AOC's views are in any way "extreme" just goes to show, like you say, how absolutely bananas radicalized those people actually are.

    The GOP can't distance themselves from this. They not only paved the way, they added a map and road signs pointing the way to this.

    probably while fighting to keep the name of the confederates those roads were named after
    "Law and Order", lots of places have had that, Russia, North Korea, Saddam's Iraq.
    Laws can be made to enforce order of cruelty and brutality.
    Equality and Justice, that is how you have peace and a society that benefits all.

    No, she is clinically fucking retarded, AOC isn't. At least AOC is well educated, MTG is fucking stupid. This dumb bitch literally fucking voted against a bone marrow registry bill, one of only 2 to do it. The other another dumb Qtard bitch Boebert.

    You know: Modern Republicans. The worst part about this rhetoric is that it is true to an extent...except that these shitbags don't think (or don't admit) for an instant that they themselves are the very oligarchs beholden to monied interests that they're frightening their constituents about.


    It's funny because when Big Tech Firms™ crack down on this stuff, these fuckwits cry crocodile tears that conservative voices are being silenced.


    One day these racist sacks of shit may understand that people who move to America become "American workers," regardless of how brown their skin or how different their native language. But I'm not holding my breath.


    ...


    I'm not read up enough on the history of fascism to know where this particular ridiculous fixation comes from.


    Echoes may or may not have been added by me.


    There's more, but this shit is exhausting. As well as being extremely depressing knowing that these are people with power in this country.

    All that architecture and sculpture was painted.
    Ooo, yeah, that was one of the surprisingly historically accurate things in AC Odyssey, especially for a series that basically matches its history fidelity with Bill and Ted.

    It's so bizarre that whenever you hear organizations with those buzz words in the name they are usually linked to extremism and terrorism.
    There was this line from the first season of the Handmaid's Tale, something Waterford tells June about his motivations for overthrowing the US.

    "We only wanted to make the world better. Better never means better for everyone. It always means worse for some."

    And the thing is, "better" is relative. I'm pretty sure that you and Marjorie Green would wildly disagree what a better world looks like.

    A lot of these people have really fucked up world views.

    Nothing is wrong with it. Unless you choose to use it as a biblical interpretation that proves the Earth is flat.

    Yeah, the QAnon people tend to go down lots of rabbit holes. Deciphering all of their batshit theories feels like a full time job at times. Mostly it highlights the dangers of having such a poor education system in this country. We really gotta start investing in it appropriately.

    Does Marjorie Taylor Greene know what an Anglo-Saxon is/was? Can she state who Hangust and Horsa were? Are we resurrecting the Heptarcky?

    On MMO-C we learn that Anti-Fascism is locking arms with corporations, the State Department and agreeing with the CIA, But opposing the CIA and corporate America, and thinking Jews have a right to buy land and can expect tenants to pay rent THAT is ultra-Fash Nazism. Bellingcat is an MI6/CIA cut out. Clyburn Truther.
