Hodges just summed the whole thing up, “no doubt in my mind” intention was to “kill or kidnap” members of Congress who were “yards away” and alter election outcome. “It was for democracy.”

It’s very difficult not to see this hearing as political theatre. It’s stunning testimony from the cops, yes. But sadly as Gonell already pointed out, the politicians have failed to punish the fascists.

So if you ask me the cops also look haunted because they know despite all they went through, you still can’t get liberals to punish fascists. None of it matters in a hard political sense at all, their pain and trauma

Honestly tho the cops give me a bit of hope for america.

The right wing hate machine is going to go after the cops now and it’s going to be really, really disgusting

"Americans don’t have friends. They don’t really have relationships at all very much in the way that a healthy society does. More than 1 in 10 Americans now reports having no close friends at all."

"Every single person I know is in a kind of deep grief — even if they don’t quite know it themselves. Think about the signs. Trouble sleeping. Anxiety, depression, brooding. The process of mourning — letting go of a past that can never be again."

I just published What Happened on Jan 6? A Fascist Coup


Congrats to Joe Biden for winning the Presidency for the fourth time this week

My partner, the doctor, rolling her eyes: tell them I don’t want their claps and cheers during a pandemic, I want them to stop voting like dummies for sociopaths who don’t want them to have decent healthcare systems at all in the first place

Especially white Americans don’t like to hear it, but we got to the “coup” stage of fascism because we didn’t impeach at the concentration camps, cages, family separations, beatings, gassing, disappearances. Fascism’s a pattern of escalation and nobody tried to really break it

Guys. Every single person who’s survived authoritarianism will tell you that when they start abducting people off the streets, you are in deep, deep trouble as a society.

You guys should be pretty worried that people who basically study doom for a living like me are like wait this shit is off the charts of even our worst predictions

guys as a survivor of authoritarianism I think you are in way deeper shit than you know, this bizarre RNC family business cult of hate is exactly how it happens. I mean *exactly*

Alright. We need to talk about fascism and America. Finally, finally, finally, white pundits are starting to call this fascism, shocked and appalled, as if minorities and women haven’t been saying this for years.

You will not get another chance at this, trust me. You are lucky to have this one. You take on the fascists now, you assume your responsibilities culturally, socially, economically, remove them from normal life. Or they go on terrorizing you in escalating violence and impunity.

If we were watching this in any other country, a head of state declaring pre emptive victory, and calling for the vote to be stopped, the word would be “coup.”
