The Supreme Court struck down the eviction moratorium stating that only congress had the power for such an act. There’s a few points to unpack here. First, there can never be justice as long as our courts exist only to be weaponized by the powerful against then powerless. Second, fuck Nancy Pelosi and the rest of congress for not acting and taking a vacation instead! Third, fuck Pelosi again! We all remember the witch queen screeching that the moratorium was the CDC’s job knowing full well she was avoiding the responsibility we pay her for. Fourth, fuck Biden for doing absolute fuck all while his entire reign is the dumpster fire I tried to tell people it was gonna be due to the fact that he’s just a slower Trump. Finally, fuck every mainstream liberal that wants to tell me that us leftists are tearing the party apart. Your party is bullshit. The big blue lie is no fucking different than the GOP. Of they think this garbage is fucking acceptable, than they deserve to be torn apart. We are the power and if we can’t change things at the ballot box, there are other options. #punkvoter

From 1979 to 2021 (Carter to Biden), American hands have been soaking in enough gallons of Afghan blood to drown a nation. Still the president sleeps well on his Boll and Branch sheets.

An attack toppled buildings and we were sold lies of hating freedom when the reality is that an abused indigenous population struck back. Still the president sleeps well on his Boll and Branch sheets.

An entire generation has been irreparably damaged by a convoluted illegal war that we still have no clear answer on why we were there. Still the president sleeps well on his Boll and Branch sheets.

46 years later, a flawed war ends worse than Vietnam as we’re chased from the nation we occupied by the demons we created. Still the president sleeps well on his Boll and Branch sheets.

The nation is presently calling for and defending imperialism and occupation as we watch is fail in real time. Still the president sleeps well on his Boll and Branch sheets.

Juneteenth has become an official holiday which is a good thing. But there are some very deep problems. This is simply a cookie from the oppressors as slavery never actually ended. The plantations became prisons and slavery is still legal under the 13th amendment. Furthermore, Republicans and mainline Democrats keep the slave machine fed by insisting that the drug war keep going which disproportionately jails black and brown bodies. Also their continuation of broken treaties to have black snakes stretch across native lands ensures that indigenous are fed to this machine as they continue to defend themselves and our planet against these poisons. The 1% are the only criminals here, yet way too many Americans practically beg the masters to send those of is who engage in direct resistance or underground economy to these tax funded plantations

As a reminder, the mainstreaming and growth we’ve seen in hate and right wing extremism isn’t over. The frequency and severity of incidents will likely increase. A large part of that is an irresponsibility to address Nazis in the underground. Over the past decade I’ve seen more punks seeming to have no problem with em at shows and seem more interested in partying than addressing racism and racists in the scene. There’s plenty who still do the work, but not enough to send these fuckers scuttling to the darkest corners of ideological existence. So as they’re able to gain increasing passive existence, they’re now free of the leash of Trump acceptance and they’re angry at any progressive victories. Also the extreme right has evolved from the standard swastika and shaved heads. We have the Proud Boys who were a complete joke now being the flagship as they’ve been able to become a multiethnic hate group. Ideologically they are white supremacists as they fight for the supremacy of the white male dominant paradigm that has ruled America since its inception. They proudly wish to be colonizers, sexists, racists and classists. The fact that Tucker Carlson (Q Anon/ Infowars light) is the most popular news show in America lets us know that these viewpoints are no longer underground. I’ve gotten stared down plenty by proud and boog boys at the grocery store. If we don’t take sides and actions, I believe the right will be paving over culture from the underground to main street. This is the call to action, this is the line in the sand.

Wow the pigs are fucking rioting. In Virginia a black man in uniform on active duty was pulled over with guns put to his head and a young black man in Minneapolis was killed over a fucking air freshener. Then when we protest this final solution level injustice, the bacon patrol shows up dressed to riot and abuse. I wonder what the conservatives are gonna do as they now have to choose between the cops and the troops. At present, I do not believe that police can be reformed without wiping the slate clean. This isn’t bad apples, this is a blighted grove that is unable to bear good fruit. The police go out of their way to be at odds with the people. They are not protectors, they are captors just waiting for an opportunity to be executioners. The blue line only cares for itself.
