      They have a plan and they’re implementing it now while we sleep……from Covid-19, voting rights, Abortion laws, insurrection, RR Supreme Court radical unconstitutional rulings, political criminal retribution threats……etc., etc.,…..If we blink too long, one day very soon, we’ll open our eyes to a nation surrendered to a deranged RR authoritarian, dictatorship government that will control the levers of political, military and judicial power over suppressed dissenting voices………





      United States Representative Jim Jordan wrote the following to accompany a video of University of Wisconsin students going wild before the opening game of the college football season: “Real America is done with COVID19. God bless!” the Ohio Republican tweeted. I’m confident he didn’t mean to, but Jordan has provided us with perhaps the best illustration of what it means to be an American fascist today. Unfortunately, most people most of the time won’t see it. Jordan’s tweet appears all-American! It’s not, though. It’s anti-American.


      When Republicans say “Real America,” they are not talking about the real America. They are not talking about the actual sovereign nation where you and I and everyone we know live. They are not talking about 50 sovereign states making up a federation — a union — based on a written Constitution and the rule of law, founded on equality and dedicated to the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. To be sure, they want those things. They just don’t want everyone else to have those things. If everyone else did have them, the Republicans wouldn’t be what they tell themselves they are. “Real Americans.” When Republicans say “Real America,” they have in their heads a very specific place. It’s not a real place, as I said. It’s a wholly imagined place that, as such, frees them from moral accountability and all manner of mutual obligation to anyone who is not already committed to this wholly imagined place. It is a confederacy of the mind and spirit, unbound by tangible boundaries, a “nation” existing inside the actual United States, where “real Americans” live as God’s chosen people.


      In Real America, as opposed to the real America, social relationships and political power are structured according to “the way things are,” according to “the natural order,” according to God’s will. As such, God rules over Mankind, men rule over women and white Christian men rule over everyone else. To GOP confederates, this is not their doing. It’s God’s. As such, anything that threatens ordered power threatens God and is deserving of any kind of response necessary to defeating it.


      It should be clear, therefore, it’s no coincidence that southern states like Florida are sabotaging the real America’s recovery from the covid pandemic. It’s no coincidence that southern states like Texas are reviving the confederate practice of nullification — canceling laws and court precedents (think Roe) that they don’t like. It’s no coincidence that representatives of southern states are leading calls for the president’s resignation after American troops were killed by suicide bombers in Afghanistan. All of these are treasonous, but the GOP confederates don’t think so. Their highest loyalty is not to the real United States. It’s to a wholly imagined authoritarian collective of God’s chosen people. In their minds, the varieties of disloyalty — sedition, betrayal, sabotage, insurrection, etc. — are in the service of their love of a make-believe “nation.” Where you see an attempted coup d’etat, they see a patriotic attempt to take back “their country.” Jim Jordan’s tweet might sound all-American. It’s not, though. It’s a threat swaddled in rah-rah-rah. The pandemic isn’t over. It’s changing. The virus is mutating. It is becoming more contagious and more lethal. And yet, according to Jordan, “Real America is done with COVID19.” The GOP confederates hate the real America. They are willing to do anything to stop it from “taking over.” Even prolonging the pandemic.

      Not a white man in sight.

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.

      The Republicans are four year olds. The Democrats are six year olds. There are no grownups.

        They want to remain in their white, racist mindset that willfully whitewashes all territorial claims & treaties by First Nation people…..


        Some broadcasters have now posted pre-TV program alerts for such programs like ‘Bonanza & Gunsmoke’ where language like ‘dirty savages, filthy Indians, murderous Indians’ was used to describe First Nation tribes. It was common script in the Bonanza and Gunsmoke series…..Here’s the text of the graphic they flash before all Bonanza & Gunsmoke episodes….Heh, “Outdated Cultural Depictions”…..just be truthful and say they’re ‘racist depictions’ clear & simple!!


        “…This program contains outdated cultural depictions. Viewer discretion is advised…”

      Amazing how they take credit for all of the work done by African slaves stolen from their own home..
