Dr. Fauci has complained bitterly about Faux News not disciplining their hosts for comparing Dr.Fauci to a Death Camp doctor. Kevin McCarthy won’t discipline his membership for any remarks at all. There is no longer a floor of anticipated accepted social behavior, so anything goes. The Fascist state takes a deep breath as the clock strikes thirteen. Flicking boogers and farting in your general direction is now accepted as political speech. There is no longer the need to pretend to be a decent human being.
The Reich’s Fuhrer of the future, lost province of Florida. Death ray Ron DeSantis is seeking money to form his own National guard unit that would work for him and answer to no one. Two hundred strong, Volunteers all, armed with tax dollars and the latest in weaponry. What could go wrong? The Federal National Guard is talking pay cuts and general discharges for Florida Guard members refusing to be vaccinated. Washington is exerting its power on Florida. A pretext for death ray Ronnie to build a new police force, unanswerable to Washington…or to Florida.
Ilian Omar releases the phone call with death threats. As poll workers sue the Gateway Pundit for naming them in an imaginary, convoluted preconceived made-up plot to cast doubt on the election. The goal, their goal, the only goal is to deconstruct society. Fascist goal number one. Disrupt and disorder society. Make up lies about what the public schools are teaching, and if we harken back to our own days in primary school, it isn’t much. Convince them the public schools are no good and the enemy, assuring that all future school levies will fail, thereby proving their point.
The Extremist court treads where angels dare not go. On the cusp of succeeding in a restriction of rights. While at the same time exposing itself as a political charade. They sell their hair for a watch fob, and sell their watch for combs. Until the question becomes not will Roe survive, but will the court survive? But the Party and the court feel the time is now right, to throw off the illusion of judicial integrity. Yeah, we lied at our confirmation hearings, but so what? We got what we wanted.
Joe Stalin famously asked, how many troops the Pope had. A future governor of Florida might ask the same question of the Extreme court. These are judges seeking to delegitimize their own court and delegitimize the reason that they themselves exist, and are put there in the first place. Judges are not needed in a Fascist state and become more of a ceremonial position. If they affirm Roe, they will appear weak and ineffectual. But if they strike down Roe, they have taken the first steps towards their own self-destruction. Cozying up to the wolf pack, hoping they’ll be the last one eaten.
A politicized court is a deconstructed court. The goal in firing on Fort Sumter, was the deconstruction of the fortification and this no different. In 1861, the State of Mississippi would tell you that they were fighting for sovereign state’s rights. While avoiding the mention of the state right in question, being the holding of people in human bondage. It took four years, but finally it was explained to Mississippi and the others, that Federal power was superior to state power. Today, the state of Mississippi makes laws designed to circumvent federal power and limit the rights of its citizens.
Other than saving a nice old fort out in the harbor and the noise factor, how is this any different? The state seeks to circumvent federal authority with a politicized court holding its nose and its rubber stamp, while looking the other way.
Opening the floodgates of deconstruction. The Republican state governments stand before the court with their own mimeographed copies of the law with Mississippi scratched out and “Your State Name Here” filled in. The law is now whatever you want it to be. Let’s get rid of that minimum wage and let’s outlaw unions. The Federal government has no hold on us! We have friends on the court!
Do away with the fairness doctrine, flood the airwaves with Reich-Wing media. Tell them their schools are no good and their government is corrupt. Corporations are people. Politicize the court, thereby delegitimizing the court. Rand Paul tells all twelve viewers of the Faux business channel that Dr. Fauci should be Jailed for Five years. Write that down for the headline, “Jailed for Five Years!” or Dr. Fauci could just step down to avoid prosecution. Citing Dr. Fauci’s testimony, fake Dr. Paul, not related to Mrs. Paul or her fish sticks. Though I suppose, fake Dr. Paul’s wife would be Mrs. Paul and therefore the subject of common jokes about fish sticks.
Poll workers forced by the angry Fascist mob to flee from their homes and schools board members receiving death threats. It’s all working perfectly! The gibbering horde is at a slow rolling boil. The court stands ready to strike down their sovereign right, and they stand ready to offer a gibbering cheer.
Any right taken away from anyone grants permission to take more rights away from someone else. The erosion never stops with one. You’re only faction now, the court has already affirmed the right to do away with the rights of factions. Hitler granted the Labor unions a Labor Day holiday, before doing away with Labor unions. Yeah, we lied. So what? We got what we wanted, and the court affirmed it as valid!
Their goal is not to bring us together, but to tear us apart. Because if they can tear us apart, they don’t have to answer for bad schools or polluted waters. Let’s advocate for coal, shall we? You know when wages are so low that people no longer give a shit about showing up. That’s obviously lazy people! No-good low-down, messed up my hamburger, lazy people. We should make a law against that!
Get ready cause here it comes; Fascism always turns inwards on itself eventually. Today the prosecutor, tomorrow the defendant. First, the Fascist Party seeks the support of the people and then it begins prosecuting them for their transgressions against the Party.
“Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.” ― George Orwell
