For some a dystopian state is already a reality

I'm talking about the poll workers, teachers, school officials and medical professionals that are getting threats of violence for just doing their jobs.

How awful it must be to live in a state where threats of violence are becoming commonplace for certain people. How are these people supposed to have pursuit of happiness? They are literally living in a dystopian state right here in America.

I don't think it's over dramatic of me to think of that poem by Martin Niemoller where he says: "First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out..."

This is how it starts. When we allow people to be threatened, we are allowing control of those people by terroristic means.

I am so pissed about these threats it's making me sick.

My opinion why a national response to the threats at school board meetings is best

This is my opinion and answer to those who think local authorities should be the only ones handling threats at school board meetings.

Who can guarantee the local authorities won't be on the side of those doing the threatening? Local authorities are not immune from right-wing brainwashing, and if they live in the community they serve there is a good chance they may be on the side of those who would threaten.

Just like in the days of segregation, a national response was necessary because leaving up to the locals didn't always work.

Again this is my opinion.

I've watched quite a bit of the Merrick Garland hearings, and I can honestly say...

The republicans questioning him are total asshole idiots who should know better. Who watching this doesn't come away with the idea that the GOP is just fine with harassing teachers? These morons are putting themselves on record with this shit.

The GOP likes a nice angry base, but they don't want the consequences

They like to whip their base into a frenzy over CRT, vaccines and mask mandates, but when their base takes them seriously and starts threatening people, they don't want anyone investigating those threats. They know damn well it's going to end up being their own supporters getting investigated.

It's the same with the investigation into January 6. They know there aren't going to be any democrats found to have been working with the rioters. Just about everyone going down in the January 6 investigation will be themselves and a multitude of others they have whipped up with their lies.

I'll be so glad when this is all out in the open. I'm sure they'll still have their cult followers, and I'm sure they will never admit to what they have done to this country. Also, I'm not holding my breath for any real consequences, but it will still be good to have it all out in the open for the sake of truth.

WTF

Why The F___ are republicans upset that Garland put out a memo concerned with stopping threats of violence to teachers?

I hear Trump wants a full investigation into Ashli Babbitt's death

Great, we can start by getting to the bottom of everything that happened that day, including Trump's communications. Enforce all subpoenas! We need to know everything that led up to her death.

Can former guys under investigation for criminal activity run for president in this country?

I'm just curious when it comes to how much a person charged with crimes gets to be taken seriously when it comes to the highest office in the land.

Facebook isn't the only platform that helps to spread misinformation and hate

Right- wing radio has been misinforming and spreading hate for years. It's only natural that it would end up on facebook too.
