The Leopards Eating People's Faces Party turning into the Leopards Eating Leopard's Faces Party is my favorite part of 2020.

Doesn't matter, the base wants a dictatorship that has (R) next to it. There are a LOT of religious nutters who want us to be the Christian Iran, and there are always plenty more who pretend to be Jesusy but really just talk about filling mass graves with dead liberals and Democrats. That base gained a lot of power the past several years and they don't want honest elections. They want elections nobody else can win in. They want one party rule and the freedom to hunt down those they oppose. Or at least that has been their rhetoric all these years and it grew much louder under Trump.

This country is becoming ungovernable. You only need a very small percent of a population to rise up for a successful revolution, opposed them successfully and we become Syria.

That is the goal, to force the country to war with itself. It is what the NRA has been pushing for, it is what Russia has been pushing for. I remember reading an article years ago back when Yeltsin was President of Russia and there was a crazy guy in their legislature pushing for an invasion of Alaska. Russian analysts had concluded that the US would fall apart along cultural lines within a generation. My guess is that under Putin, they have been pushing at those cracks all along.

Vladimir Zhirinovskiy.  A buddy of Putin's, who stays in the Russian government because he provides the crazy that they love; sorta like making Dennis Rodman a senator.  The guy once claimed that Russian men weren't fertile enough, so he personally would father hundreds of children all over Russia to get the Russian stock back to where it belonged.

There's a widespread myth in Russia that Alaska was never sold to the USA, only leased for a period of 100 years, and that the USA used the Tsar being overthrown as an excuse to renege. Of course this isn't true but you can see how someone could get the common people to support war by spreading this.

Thanks to Global warming things are changing the Seas up there. What was once arduous if not impassable is now a shipping channel. Alaska is a backwater no more.

This rising level of rhetoric has been going on since the 1960's and will continue until militias rise up. Our best hope is to have as many people, or more, with guns as them. I may have gone through my late teens till my mid 20's as a rethuglican/libertarian, but what I've seen since has lead me to be a Marxist. We need to be ready for what is coming and this will only be solved with .357.

Yes, actually. American netto-uyoku are very alarmed by the sudden surge of gun sales to registered Democrats. They are much less enthusiastic about a civil war in which the other side also has guns. It remains as true today as a thousand years ago: si vis pacem, para bellum.

Fidel and other authoritarians are a problem. Authoritarians in general are as it always leads to huge issues. The current Rethuglican/Reich Wing party are distilled authoritarianism and should be stood up to. It does not matter if you are socialist, communist, or any other flavor of it; authoritarianism is bad and leads to things like the killing fields of Cambodia or the haulocast camps.

That's the perception, yes.   But then the last time the personal firearm was the leading killer on the battlefield in a US major war was 1865 - and they lost that one, too.

In reality, knowledge will be the biggest weapon on any US mainland 21st century battlefield.   And not in the case of mere propaganda, though conservatives have excelled at that since the Civil War too, and Sherman spoke of the lies and excitement their newspapers brought then.   And don't get me started on the endless propaganda coming from the churches.

It will be hackers.  Chemists.  Physicists.  It will be the next weapon that doesn't eliminate cites, but incapacitates whole divisions at a time.

And it will be who controls the federal government, and the vast resources it has at it's disposal.

Let's hope we don't have to find out.

As the aforementioned General said, "You cannot qualify war in harsher terms than I will. War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it; and those who brought war into our conuntry deserve all the curses and maledictions a people can pour out. "

If it comes to that, we've already lost at a very fundamental level.   I don't think it will.   But all I can do is arm myself and my family, as I'm not a physicist, hacker or chemist, so that I have done.

Gabriel Sterling, a top election official under the Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, pleaded for a stop to Trump's conspiracy theories, which have led to threats of violence against election officials across the country and in his office.

And in an interview on NPR, he said he's still a Republican and voting for Loeffler and Perdue. He wasn't wrong in what he said during his speech about the rhetoric contributing to violence. Listening to him, he's obviously educated.

But he also basically said he thinks the Republican Party can be salvaged. I think he's dreaming.

Whats the old saying "too little too late"?  Which is always typical for this lot.
They have always been short-sighted and incapable of understanding that actions have consequences.
Oh sure, they recite the mantras - but they have no idea what the words actually mean.
They always beg forgiveness, never ask permission. Only care how bad something they do is when it effects them.

Sadly, none of this will teach them anything either.
Which is why the rest of civil society needs to step in.
And why we have a justice system.

In Arizona, the Republican chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors said he would not "violate the law or deviate from my own moral compass,"

Coming from a republican that's not reassuring at all, their morals are shiat.


"Someone's going to get hurt, someone's going to get shot, someone's going to get killed," Sterling said. "It's not right."

Translation: We might get hurt, we might get shot, ourselves or someone we're personally connected to might get killed, it's not right!


"I believe that history will not be kind to those who are cognizant of the truth and yet choose silence for political expediency," he said.

If irony could kill a republican saying this would level an entire city block, complicit mf'ers.


"It just it boggles my mind that these appeals are still being believed with no evidence."

There goes another city block. Republicans have been feeding their base this bullshiat for years, what the f*ck did you think would happen when you feed this crap to your low-information base for years.

Still, there is fear among experts that the conspiracies about election fraud are becoming more and more mainstream in Republican politics. And that this could become a strategy for Republicans in the future, even after Trump leaves office, if the majority of the party is not willing to condemn it now.

Republicans are never putting this cat back in the bag.

Trump isn't even that evil in the grand scheme of things.  He's selfish, and petty, and vengeful, sure, but he's only "evil" because he has power and he's surrounded by more-evil yes-men.  He didn't make the Republicans evil, and indeed he didn't even make them more evil--all he did was give them permission to be more naked and flagrant in their evil.
