    Because it seems that otherwise, as long as it's only loudly implicitly stated that folks will take them at their word and avoid making the obvious connections given all the broader context about the GOP shitting on marginalized groups for political points with their base.

    Yes, this is precisely their stance.

    No. But they'll end up with more votes than their opponent. Each member of the LGBTQ+ community that kills themselves is one less vote against them.

    I rely on you to inform the thread of all the implications you derive from the shared opinion that the "GOP is shitting on marginalized groups for political points with their base." At least some of those points, when brought up in current events, will not run afoul of the proscriptions regarding Religion, Race/Ethnicity, Nationalism and nation bashing, Abortion, Sexuality, Gender, Gender identity.

    The flippant alternative, that the [other side] just wants [right-wing talking point about lgbtq2ii+ people] is certainly not tolerated.

    Voter ID laws expressly designed to disenfranchise minorities, constantly batted down as intentionally racist by courts.
    "Bathroom laws" targeting a problem that doesn't exist. Same goes for highschool sports which suddenly they care deeply about and are super duper cereal.
    Constant and vocal xenophobia and demonization of immigrants, especially those of certain ethnic persuasions (shithole countries, anyone?)

    I could go on, but those are all pretty common/central tenants for Republicans nowadays. If you can't connect those dots it's because your pen ran out of ink or because you're intentionally choosing to ignore all that context because they didn't explicitly say it, ignoring the intent of these bills and political positions.

    Yes, but only until they manage to make it legal to murder them.

    I mean...there are places in the world where men who share similar beliefs to Republicans will happily throw LGBT people off of rooftops. So are you really surprised that they wouldn't care about them killing themselves?

    Reminder for those who find it convenient to forget context. There was a disturbing amount of support for the Taliban agenda from extreme right wingers in the US and Europe, they were especially supportive of their policies regarding women and LGBTQ+ communities.

    Because connecting dots can be really, really hard.

    You can do the same thing with Hitler quotes. Once you edit around the specific groups being targeted, the fundamental rhetoric is the same; the need to protect traditions, "family values", Christian nation, oppose the "deviancy" that "Marxists" promote, etc and so forth. They've just updated the talking points for a new context, but the attitude and rhetoric is not meaningfully different.

    This goes for if you love Abbot and hate Dems (or Huffines etc) or love Beto and hate GOP (hell, I don't even know who the most loved Democratic politician in the state is...) ... or love Matthew Dowd, who popped out into national news running for Texas lieutenant governor.

    I'm not a resident of Texas and I don't have to make the informed choice of whether to vote for him or not. It's entirely possible that if I were less ignorant of local Texas politics, I'd have a very different opinion. If I spent today and tomorrow reading up on Abbott's governorship through the years, and thought him a total scumbag afterwards, it wouldn't be the first nor the last Republican on whom I've come to that conclusion.

    Dan Patrick and Ken Paxton are probably as well known to me as Rob Bonta and Eleni Kounalakis are to you. I don't really watch national cable news networks, I mostly read newspapers and articles on the national wires and online publications.
    I would think that the whole debacle with Texas losing power people waiting in line for basic supplies, Ted Cruz escaping to Cancun and the governor lying about the cause of his complete failure to provide for his people would be enough. I mean I don't know what Abbot has to do for anyone who hasn't been in a coma to not realize that he is bad at this job so he has to virtue signal and wage culture war.

    To this day Texas infrastructure hasn't been reformed, the utility companies are still free to bankrupt their customers if they wish that's on top of other issues he is not addressing instead of which toys are sold in what section in a store.

    It’s projection as always.

    “I’m a huge lying racist piece of shit so everyone else has to be as well.” without the self awareness and a big dose of smuggery.

    You're really overestimating how conservative gen Z is going to be.

    But i'm sure a lot of countries will stay as homophobic and transphobic as you want them to be. Make Saudia Arabia is more to your liking?

    Are people really in here pearl clutching when someone said Texan politicians are bad people?

    You mean, from the same people that brought you "Its up to yourselves to survive" when the terrible state infrastructure went to shit after they were warned it was going to happen?

    Like seriously you are going to tell people to be patient and ask for proof? Like what do you expect, sticky fingerprint and a note written in the Governors blood telling them to take down the website?

    Like how many objectively shitting things does it take before you stop giving Texan politicians the benefit of the doubt?

The West is not nearly respectful enough to these foreign cultures and nations. For further information you can read my signature.

    I imagine going from a Bernie supporting "anarchist" to a theocratic fascist is quite the journey.
    Populists (and "national socialists") look at the supposedly secret deals that run the world "behind the scenes". Child's play. Except that childishness is sinister in adults.
