It's pretty telling that the US thinks their political system is still a good one when everything relies on good faith. They shouldn't be able to install highly partisan candidates in roles that call for non-partisanship. It's completely mental.

This is no longer just some extremist fringe. The mainstream of the American conservative movement, as in people who will be sitting in Congress, is now white supremacists and people who believe in satanic conspiracy theorists.

And this article is from before Laura Loomer won a GOP primary in Florida this week (a seat that is apparently very safe in the Dems hands, but who knows these days).

Came across this Twitter thread yesterday, and thought it was interesting (and frightening) - especially in light of the FBI tweeting out a link to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion yesterday:

This also just happened:

True. And it represents an important distinction. Modern American conservatism is White supremacists, conspiracy theorists and criminals.

Bannon being taken into custody by USPS agents while Trump is trying to dismantle USPS is just . . . *chef's kiss*

I saw this coming from miles away. This isn't a shock. The right is so good at continuously pulling the wool over propels eyes while they scare people about government while simultaneously reaching into their pockets. And people fall for it over and over and over. We really are a dumb species.

As if we needed further proof after witnessing decades of people filling Maple Leafs Gardens and the ACC thinking that this would finally be the year the Leafs won the cup again....  ;)
It's not denial...I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

Trump rage-tweeting in all caps last night during the DNC event instead of, you know, even pretending to lead the nation during a crisis, pretty much sums up where this is headed.
