They hv all been plenty dangerous for the Indigenous and life on the planet in general, but yeah Trumps been trying real hard to out do the rest, and he does represent a rather large demographic of murderous, racist colonizer that we are still left with.

I am Hunkpapa Lakota, are there any other Indigenous people here on Mastadon...

leftist by birth and heritage.

Arggh, gawd it is so frustrating listening to our corporate press solemnly bemoaning the rabble threatening our “Democracy”.

The Democracy where the people hv less then a 30% chance of the citizens needs be heard in congress, over the desires of big money, our trillion dollar military, and Wall St price fixers.

The Democracy where two major parties control and exclude millions of the votes and voices. Where over 100 million don’t vote bc they understand their votes are worthless.

We have Biden bc hundreds of Billionaires wanted him, not bc democracy works.

@dysco

yes, ive heard the same, think it is much easier to just slip it in here and there in order to inoculate and guard against pushback and rejection, so not surprised that everyone is not repeating it verbatim, but they hv tried to conflate anarchist and protesters with terrorists and right wing armed mobs for quite awhile.

Even in times of a fascist coup liberals are confusing anarchy with fascism.

nitter.net/sethmoulton/status/

Okay, they are also confusing capitalism with freedom.

@itsgoingdown

yes that seems to be a deliberate act by our corporate media, pushing, labeling our constitutional rights to free speech, assembly and protests as illegal by conflating it with right wingers crazed mob behavior. Trump and his minions are useful idiots for authoritarianism.

Today, both CNN and Fox News labeled the white nationalists, neo-Nazis, Qanon conspiracy theorists and Trump supporters who marched into the capitol as "anarchists." Anarchists have been fighting fascism and white supremacy for centuries. Don't let these pundits re-write history.
