  • The Democratic Party is part of the problem, not part of the solution. Voting for the Democrats and their so-called "blue wave" is not voting to stop the great crimes the Trump/Pence regime is carrying out. It's a vote to continue these crimes, accommodate to fascism, and legitimize the whole putrid system that carries out monstrous crime after monstrous crime, and gives rise to fascists like Trump and Pence.
  • The "blue wave" isn't the answer. It's a poisonous polluted wave of slime and sh*t that will only leave people drenched in disappointment, accommodation, and complicity.

The Great Western Narrative is there to perpetuate power by legitimizing it, by making its unbalanced and unjust distribution seem natural and immutable.Our planet and our children’s futures depend on us liberating ourselves, seeing the ghosts in the machine for what they truly are.
