Punk Politics #70

Ron DeSantis (governor of Florida introduced a bill to make it illegal to discomfort white people through the teaching of Critical Race Theory. Yes, he is fucking criminalizing anti-racism in the most efficient way possible. The best way to stop racism is to kill ignorance with education. Discomforting white should be a default and a life goal. I propose we use social media to pump CRT and antiracism to as many Floridians as possible. Legislation like this is the new face of the Klan. It’s more insidious as it has more power with which to be irresponsible. If we don’t want this fascism to keep spreading and strangling us, we must fight. You cannot sit on the fucking sidelines. If you’re fence walking, you’re one of them. This is a new Jim Crow. Allowing people to learn the truth and decide for themselves is the next step in civil rights. Sitting by during that era was wrong, now it’s unacceptable as there’s no reason to not know better.

The fuckin nazis are makin noise again. Over the weekend the group Patriot Front marched at the Lincoln Memorial. This is the name change of American Vanguard who were the khaki commandos at Charlottesville whose own member killed Heather Hayer with his car. This is highly problematic as they’ve had plenty of time to plan and organize coming from a group who has demonstrated a willingness to kill. Also Proud Boys marched over the weekend. The most concerning is that Ron DeSantis is working to establish a state guard in Florida. This proposal will be about 200 volunteers who will serve alongside the National Guard bit be strictly beholden to DeSantis. My bet is 200 members of neo nazi leadership to recruit and marshal those federal resources. Like I said, they weren’t hiding, they’ve been planning. Make sure the streets is watching and have each other’s backs out there.
