The GOP appears to be aligning itself with Orban and quietly embracing the nationalism.

I mean, you can use "MAGA" (insert Austria) and won't even need new apparel/bling. Putin and Belarus leader pushing the "cleansing Europe" ideology as well. Sure most Goopers would support them as well. Any thoughts on this progression toward "authoritarianism" ie. actively embracing these folks?

Disgusts the hell out of me and it looks as if there is a fair amount of traction. The Bannon and Carlson types have been on it for years at this point. You know the Orange One wants it bad.

I wonder if Ukraine still had their nuclear weapons, if any of this horror would have happened?

I also wonder where the "Christians" are condemning this massive loss of life and genocide? Not hearing anything making it to MSM but am sure some (Universalist Unitarians, Friends are). Loud condemnation is called for in the face of an unprovoked invasion of a sovereign nation with massive loss of human life. Watching is is gut-wrenching as it seems like WWII atrocities all over again. That is unacceptable and yet most Americans seem marginally interested.

January 6th Committee live and only MSNBC is covering. A meaningful announcement

and no other outlets? Makes me wonder if the "public testimony" in a few months will be similarly marginalized?

Crunch Time

The longer the insanity continues, the more "they" are enabled and emboldened. There is way more than enough evidence for the Commission to recommend formal charges against 45 and his closest enablers. If they wait until July or whenever, for a "report" to be issued, there will be so much more BS spread and a "call to arms" will be sent (in coded encrypted messaging of course), to fuel a real violent insurrection.
We are wasting time. It has been 13 months (in 3 days). I seriously wonder what Garland is waiting for. Let the Garland defenders attack, I expect it.

TFG's dad (Fred) was a arrested at a Klan rally in NYC (WaPo). He took us in the same direction

and brought the white, somehow aggrieved, maligned, ignored racists from their shadows. He is and always was, a racist, vile human. The apple did not fall far from the tree. The question is, as a country do we have the resolve to clearly and finally call it out and address the systemic hatred, racism or do we succumb to the hatred and vileness which is Cult 45? It has progressed since Charlottesville all the way to 1/6/2020 and a concerted effort to overthrow our government. It is now at a dangerous inflection point. Do we have the will in our institutions to return them to their shadows?

I witnessed in 2015 when graffiti swastikas and pro-45 crap started showing up on local playgrounds. Fucking playgrounds. I knew then, that Voldemort was back.

As of yet, I have heard crickets calling it out. It's like the "MSM" media is directed or afraid to not call out that which "shall be not be named" or openly addressed. Southern Poverty Law Center is who is tracking this, better than the FBI or any government institution in my estimation.

I welcome your "General Discussion" comments.
