US pol, ICE Show more
It seems like Democrat’s calls to abolish ICE are really just calls for immigration reform masquerading behind radical language. If you want to reform existing border laws, why would you spend the huge amounts of money required to create a new institution from scratch?

surprising to no one, but the latest evidence that the pentagon wants to use (or already uses) social media to predict protests: https://motherboard.vice.com/amp/en_us/article/7x3g4x/pentagon-wants-to-predict-anti-trump-protests-using-social-media-surveillance?__twitter_impression=true
Ro vs. Immigration Show more
So after a week of hate crimes, 45 decides to send troops to our southern border and then announces he's going to end birthright citizenship for children of immigrants born in America.
This is straight up fascism. This is a straight up attack on Brown people.
Brown folks are quickly becoming the largest social group in the US as white populations decline.
This is a direct attack by whiteness on people the perceive as the enemy.
This is why white people elected Trump.
Every media outlet that calls them "far right" instead of fascists is a cop
Solidarity with every person who is and will be nightingale back against fascism in Brazil.
Solidarity with the antifascists in the streets, in the universities, in poor areas, with Afro-Brazilians, with queer people, with women, with leftists, with the people fighting police brutality and prisons
A black day in #Brazil: #Bolsonaro elected president - #antifa https://enoughisenough14.org/2018/10/29/a-black-day-in-brazil-bolsonaro-elected-president/
Gab lost their hosting provider and will be "down for weeks", just hope they don't find out about the fediverse and scuttlebutt.
If you see a fascist you know what to do. (Kick them off this platforms and anyone that willfully host them)
talking about Gab and fascism. some meta. Show more
So Gab, the “alt-right Twitter”, is losing its hosting on Monday. I’d recommend that admins be on the lookout for new instances and users that exhibit dog whistle tendencies.
No one wants the stench of Gab anywhere near them. It’s a cesspool and those that argue on behalf of “free speech” can line up to get their ass kicked by yours truly. They were an incubator for alt-right fascists and terrorists. They will not be missed.

i read that they think it was a "lone gunman" and bullshit
there are billions of dollars behind this
robert mercer, rupert murdoch, all these billionaires putting lots and lots of money into pinning all the world's problems on "globalists"
this was not a lone gunman; this was someone whose mind was twisted by people far, far more powerful than him

Exclusively symbolic acts are not revolutionary and you need to shake yourself from the complacency of thinking they are
The realm of ideas, the superstructure, it's important! yes.
But without the material, physical, baseline organizing underneath it; it's not getting us anywhere. What we need right now isn't symbolic acts it's material acts.
So shake yourself from your complacency and fear, arise, link arms, and fight
