“The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the convinced Communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction (i.e., the reality of experience) and the distinction between true and false (i.e., the standards of thought) no longer exist.”

? Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

https://www.advocate.com/crime/pro-lgbtq-church-firebombed-texas

An LGBTQ-affirming church in Texas was firebombed just weeks after right-wing activists visited it, pretending to be part of the LGBTQ+ community, and then posted a video to YouTube dubbing the church “pagan and satanic.”

Law enforcement officials haven’t said the video was connected to the attack, nor have they characterized the bombing as a hate crime, but they are still investigating, NBC News reports.

https://popular.info/p/judge-orders-southwest-airlines-to

A federal judge appointed by Trump, Brantley Starr, has ordered three lawyers for Southwest Airline to undergo "religious liberty training" by ADF, a right-wing anti-abortion organization

ADF has been identified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for propagating “known falsehoods about LGBT people.” The group has fought to protect “European laws requiring the sterilization of transgender citizens.”

I like how the judge refers to Adam speaking with God in the Garden of Eden as an historical anecdote.

Can Southwest not appeal the ruling?

I wasn't sure where to put this so I'll put it here:

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2023/aug/14/argentina-far-right-populist-javier-milei-shock-lead-primary-presidential-elections

Quote :
"A former tantric sex coach who plans to do away with Argentina’s public health and education systems, disband the central bank, dollarise the economy and allow people to sell their organs has moved a step closer to becoming the next president of Argentina after a landslide win in open primaries.
....
Out on the street, Milei fanatics waved the yellow Gadsden flag of the US extreme right, bearing a black rattlesnake on a yellow background and the “Don’t tread on me” slogan that is a regular feature at his rallies.

Milei said: “This election will not only put an end to Kirchnerism, but also to the parasitic, larcenous, useless caste that is sinking the country.” As has become his custom, he dedicated the victory to his dead dog Conan and three surviving dogs.

NEW: GiveSendGo bills itself as the Christian alternative to GoFundMe — a platform committed to sharing “the Hope of Jesus through crowdfunding.”

But the platform preferred by Trump’s alleged co-conspirators is also a hit with white-supremacists and neo-Nazis. https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/christian-crowdfunding-givesendgo-white-power-problem-1234809799/

I went to the museum of communism in Prague and I’m more convinced than I’ve ever been that trumpism is heading towards a fascist catastrophe if we can’t stop it

But I also feel we’re taking the right steps to stop it. The only piece of the puzzle we’re missing is for the rest of the gop to start talking like Chris Christie.

^^Disagree. And many who claim to be level-headed will still vote for Trump because (R). Or because they secretly DO like him.

Looks like nc republicans created a Gestapo to help them perhaps steal elections
https://popular.info/p/north-carolina-republicans-create

Quote :
" North Carolina’s new $300 billion state budget contains a provision that gives extraordinary investigative powers to a partisan oversight committee co-chaired by Senate Leader Phil Berger (R) and House Speaker Tim Moore (R).

The Joint Legislative Committee on Government Operations — or Gov Ops for short — is empowered to seize “any document or system of record” from anyone who works in or with state and local government during its investigations. The rule applies to contractors, subcontractors, and any other non-state entity “receiving, directly and indirectly, public funds,” including charities and state universities.

Moreover, Gov Ops staff will be authorized to enter “any building or facility” owned or leased by a state or non-state entity without a judicial warrant. This includes the private residences of subcontractors and contractors who run businesses out of their homes, lawmakers say.

Alarmingly, public employees under investigation will be required to keep all communication and requests “confidential.” They cannot alert their supervisor of the investigation nor consult with legal counsel. Violating this rule “shall be grounds for disciplinary action, including dismissal,” the law reads. Those who refuse to cooperate face jail time and fines of up to $1,000. In the event that Gov Ops searches a person’s home, these rules mean that the person 1) must keep the entry a secret, 2) cannot seek outside help (unless necessary for fulfilling the request, the law says), and 3) could face criminal charges if Gov Ops deems them uncooperative.

"Police said Hardman was outside in the neighborhood being loud, causing a disturbance, which prompted the initial 911 call. Video sent to WRAL News by a resident in the neighborhood recorded a man screaming in the street around the time of the shooting.

In the video, the man can be heard shouting calls to violence to graduates and students of MIT, Harvard and more and called for the ‘cleansing of the country’ as the ‘final solution.’"

Seems like progressives are losing on diversity and inclusion efforts, fighting climate change, women's rights, public education, immigration reform, and free trade, with some marginal wins in support for unions and worker pay.

Biden admin is basically just treading water trying to keep rightwing people happy, but no one is pushing for progress on the bulk of the other issues.
