Are you guys aware of this?

On Tuesday, the Washington Times, the ultra-right daily newspaper in the US capital, published a full-page ad purchased by an Ohio-based fascist group, the We The People Convention, calling on Trump to declare martial law and order a new election under the supervision of the US military.

The ad denounced the “threat to our United States by the international and domestic socialist/communist left,” warned of the existence of “well-funded, armed and trained marxists in ANTIFA and BLM strategically positioned in our major cities,” and denounced the election as “corrupt and provably fraudulent.”

Guess they are too stupid to realize they are asking for authoritarian dictatorship. We don’t need another election. They just need to accept the one we just had and get on with life, because there was NO FRAUD or corruption. They just can’t get that through their thick heads and are demanding that the election go their way. It didn’t go their way and it was without fraud. They really do like to make up crap.

They must not realize the executive branch has no control over elections.

This is a pretty amazing piece of analysis. It seemed weird, but I was talking online to some of my QAnon friends and a mutual friend put this up. The psychology of gaming was interesting, the way there isn't really a goal except to keep playing, it's the same dopamine hit, win or lose. But then, he starts talking about how the clues cross over into real life, and there is no way this is just some dudes on a reddit page, there has to be some money behind this. It's weird, because now I'm saying there is a conspiracy, right? The conspiracy is that the conspiracy theorists are conspiring to get people to not believe media, not believe their government, not believe anything except an anonymous poster on the internet.

The conspiracy is the call to arms and violence with the rise of fascistic forces to take authoriarian control. The real worry is the lack of action by corporare democrats to counter this movement by calling on the working class to rise up itself.

Hmmm, think you have something there. I notice the Democratic Party communication with their grassroots has never evolved past the begging for donation, into the informating and engaging phase. They've never really tried to activate people, such as when the Republicans froze Obama's Supreme Court nomination Garland. Instead of explaining facts and developing talking points, encouraging people to start massive letter campaigns and protests, encourage a huge demonstration to surround and shut down the Capital Building with American and demand the Garland receive his hearing. (I believe it's a case of not wanting to wake the giant. That is self-awareness that public pressure works on politicians, if tactical and forceful.)

They folded for an entire f’n year - Quite literally rolling over like a beaten dog and letting the Republicans know loud and clear, that they can get away with anything. The rest is history and they certainly have.

 

 

Previous to this election I was very worried, but seems to me it’s turned out, when ya get down to it, the radical right is as lazy as the left. For all their chest beating - turns out they got no real heart after all - posers one and all. Guess they are coddled hollywood children as much as the lefties. There’s some comfort in that, but not much, as the free fall continues. Momentum and general apathy, same as it ever was.

Somewhere in this documentary, we have George explaining how the coddled British were reduced to sheep, incapable of rising up again. I forget where it is, and don’t have the time to watch this now and its been a couple years since I watched it. I have the feeling you, anton, might like the entire program.

George Orwell: A Life in Pictures Full Documentary (High Quality)

George Orwell: A Life in Pictures is a 2003 BBC Television docudrama telling the life story of the British author George Orwell.

Chris Langham plays the part of Orwell. No surviving sound recordings or video of the real George Orwell have been found.

The conspiracy is the call to arms and violence with the rise of fascistic forces to take authoriarian control. The real worry is the lack of action by corporare democrats to counter this movement by calling on the working class to rise up itself.
You mean the usual neoliberal response of this is not who we are as a nation is not enough? ?

It’s not a realistic threat in the first place, and the working class are mostly pro-Trump.

NO GUY, That’s not what I meant.

 

What’s it even mean to be a Trump supporter, does it have anything to do with anything thoughtful, and considered???

What are their standards of ethics? Look up the word if you need help.

 

You’ve never have tried to he help us understand what it is about Trump - (well beyond pissing off “liberals” - yippy - grown that one, eh).

Trump himself is nothing but an malicious predator idiot, he knows power and manipulating sycophants, beyond that he knows greed and self-adulation. Regarding the world, or history, or humanity, or science he’s stupider than a brick in the wall. Worst he has the heart of an out of control vandal oblivious to all but his own vanity.

 

Actually Trump supporters aren’t mostly anything but sadly silly scared angry sheople - thoughtless, gullible, willing to embrace any stupid bs, that the slickest predator feeds them.

That’s what comes from the Faith Based Shallowness that self-serving pick-pocket evangelical preachers force-feed minds with. :frowning:

Guy, if you’re curious about what i meant, just relax and watch that documentary about George Orwell. He gets closer to what I think than anything your biased mind is capable imagining.

Reference to Orwell is a good one !

I have a complotist in my family, a French-American one. He is sure that the US election was rigged and that Covid is part of a world plot and so.

When a fact is shown which contradicts his ideas, he answer that I will not tell him what he must think.

Democracy supposes that, even if one disagrees about facts and more about their interpretation, one admits that there is only one factual truth.

The idea of alternative facts is a direct reference to Orwell, 2+ 2 = 5 or to the way of functioning of totalitarian states.

Harari the author of Homosapiens has published a paper a few days ago. He reminds us an aspect of Na.zi.sm which is that part of their view of the world was a complotist one.

In fact the Na.zis bellieved that there was a secret worldwide conspiracy of Jews and rich people to dominate the world and to subjugate the Aryan race. this theory was believed by enough people to lead us to WWII and its atrocities. Does this reminds you something ?

one admits that there is only one factual truth. -- morgan
You could search the archives here for some of my stories, but I'll just summarize. I've seen a few of my friends make the switch from reasonable to irrational. All of us hold some belief that's wrong, so in that sense, they were just like all of us. I don't mind someone who studies astrology or thinks they know more about farming than farmers, as long as they keep it limited to a few topics like that.

The switch starts when they can’t handle anyone holding a different opinion. They get upset when someone says astrology isn’t real, for example. Then they see an article in the paper that contradicts their belief about organic farming. Then they start to question all news, all science. That’s the tipping point, where they either figure out how the scientific method works or they start looking for groups who just agree with them, and are happy to spew their anger at anyone who disagrees.

Yes it is

 

The issue is what will the piss weak democrats do when the fascists rise up and take power? What about you guys as american citizens? What will you do?

Morgan,

anton will likely have his account blocked. I usually just ignore him.

Sorry every one, but i am not sure about the point of view Anton is speaking from.

So if I may, Biden and Kamala are classical politicians, with their merits and limits. Som extremists may support them but they don’t lead the way.

The fascist danger comes from Trump, his friends and Qanon who pervert the reality and encloses their supporters in a false world.

If I remember rightly FBI is very conscious of the matter.

To fight fascism and keep democracy alive is very difficult, specially when so many people are ready to support it.Remember that Hi.t.ler came into power using the constitutional means and got an agreement of the German parliament. Mussolini threatened and it was enough given the way the Italian political system was rotten. One must not fear an armed rising but the fall of the democratic system on itself.

I would say that the fight is ideological. It is up to Biden and democrats to alleviate the material problems of the people and to fight their fears. It is up to every democrat, of either party, to fight.

The republican authorities of republican states have resisted Trump pressions to block the results. that’s a good sign .

Morgan wasnt so much aim at you, rather at the long term posters on here. Will the democratic party call on its base for resistance activism and are people prepared to participate in direct action to counter the fascist assault on the working class or will they just remain keyboard warriors?

 

Lots of progessives are asking this question

NO GUY, That’s not what I meant.

WTF is this dumb sh** – I was responding to Anton, not you.

Nope.
and are people prepared to participate in direct action to counter the fascist assault on the working class or will they just remain keyboard warriors?
Hell no. But there is no "fascist assault" on the working class. Neoliberalism is what's destroying the working class.
