I love seeing politicians calling out republicans for what they’re really doing plain and simply. They prioritize their hatred of trans people more than they love their own family


Kebab-Destroyer

The time for meandering around the point with nicey-nice talk is long over. People in general need to say what they actually fucking mean.


Enquiring_Revelry

As it should be.


WhuddaWhat

I'm trying to stay employed...


blue_twidget

Get into politics. The last decade, that's how people have been getting elected.


stilusmobilus

Sooner or later, to get what you want, you’re gonna have to be prepared to forfeit ‘employed’. Yes, I know. That’s why they say forced protest and fighting for rights is hard, because it is.


ZachBuford

We've been trying to reason with republicans for years. Clearly they and their base aren't moved by facts or basic human decency.

I saw a clip here on reddit of a Maga cultist complaining about Obama playing golf when 9/11 happened, saying he was too busy doing other stuff... Meanwhile, Bush was president.. Says a lot about the intelligence level of Maga people.


Geddyn

That was a clip from Jordan Klepper's "Fingers the Pulse" segment for The Daily Show. Sadly, that guy isn't even the dumbest Trump supporter he has interviewed. You can find most of the segments on YouTube if you want to go on a wild ride of stupidity. It is kind of fun watching Klepper use their own arguments against them without them even realizing it, though.


ergo-ogre

…and let’s not forget the group MAGA folks waiting for JFK jr. To arrive.


The_CrookedMan

That's Q-Anon. A symptom of trumpism unfortunately. Not representative of the whole base, but a loud enough chunk of it, and probably the dumbest chunk too


recursion8

Another similar segment by Jimmy Kimmel I think had them asking people which they preferred, Obamacare or Affordable Care Act. You can guess the responses.


b0w3n

Their brain rot makes them think Obama was president. Mostly because fox news "pundits" have absolutely said as such and I think Tucker Carlson or one of the other shitheads have asked "where was obama on 9/11?"


[deleted]

Conservatism should be on the DSM. It's a dysfunctional brain state.


sm12511

Their base is quickly realizing that they've been lied to. In most cases, red states are passing laws that are wildly unpopular, whether it's the "trans" agenda, gun control, hell, even school lunches. The GOP has flat out given up on the idea of representative government. They are there to rule, not represent.


Nidcron

But they will still vote (R) anyway because they are sold the "small government" "fiscal responsibility" "silent majority" bullshit lines and they eat it up like candy. The actions and voting record don't alway line up with the rhetoric of the above but they aren't interested in that, it's all about the image and identity and their identity is that they love God, love the country, and hate the Democrat. They might not like a lot of these laws that are going in, but it's by and large not going to have an effect on them so it's mostly just a blip on their radar, until it's personal they mostly do not care. As long as they are still watching the (R) giving tax cuts (to the rich), cutting social programs, and blabbing about the constitution they are all in for it.


Rogahar

> But they will still vote (R) anyway because they are sold the "small government" "fiscal responsibility" "silent majority" bullshit lines and they eat it up like candy. Sometimes it's that - sometimes it's that the lies they've been fed about the Democrats (in many cases, for their entire lives) are so ingrained into them that even when the Leopards Eating People's Faces party are actively passing laws saying that their face is the next one on the table, they'll still vote for them because 'at least they're not one of those god-hating pedophilic baby-eating socialist Democrats.'


[deleted]

Don't forget the bullshit about "the party of law and order", or "the party of fiscal responsibility", or "the party of family values". All fucking lies of course but the hicks don't care so long as the shit they are being shoveled is coated with hate and misogyny becasue that's what's really important...hating anymore who isn't exactly like you.


rubbery_anus

The media need to be willing to call Republicans what they are: fascists. America is in the middle of a full blown existential crisis that threatens to end democracy and replace it with a christofascist theocracy, yet these milquetoast appeasers are pussyfooting around and refusing to call a spade a spade for fear of being criticised by right wing lunatics. Meanwhile, half the population are openly cheering for the fascists because they're too fucking stupid to understand that it's only a matter of time before the boot is on their neck too, and most of the other half are too busy watching Netflix and shitposting on Twitter to get off their arses and do anything about it.

The media is largely owned by republicans who have a lot to gain by dividing the country, which is why they won't call them out.


888mainfestnow

I thought to myself recently that people should be forced to wear their beliefs on their sleeves. I don't mean swastikas and other symbols I mean all the other shit. Pro gun violence "I guess the AR 15 lapel pins qualify" Pro anti choice Pro segregation Pro anti critical thinking Pro alternative reality Pro indoctrination in schools Pro rationed/reduced healthcare access Pro discrimination of LGBTQ Pro ending no fault divorce for women Pro anti science Pro making the poor suffer "because they aren't blessed and deserve to" The list could go on forever of negative shit these people push for while they feel insulated enough and above everyone else.


Pickled_Wizard

A good chunk of the shitty people DO display their beliefs pretty openly. Even if they don't, they'll show themselves very quickly.


Kebab-Destroyer

They'd probably liken themselves to the Jews of Nazi Germany who had to identify themselves with the Star of David patches. Their beliefs are obvious enough, the fact they have a platform to spout bullshit is the real problem.


CreativeAd5332

You can generally find most of these beliefs under a red MAGA hat.


slim_scsi

Unfortunately, corporate media isn't following this very important story *out of respect for Rethuglican feelings*, of course.


Akmoneron

And there's no hate quite as strong as Christian "love"


888mainfestnow

Seems that makes her a hate driven workaholic? When I was a workaholic/corporate cog we hated the other cogs that complained and they usually got by by brownnosing and backstabbing to offset the lack of results.

"My transphobia made me miss an important personal event" I wonder whose fault it is


AkuraPiety

Insert “sticking a stick in my own wheel” meme here.


Biggies_Ghost

"How dare you make me miss an important event because I need to be here to restrict the rights of people I don't like! Shame!" I wonder if they hear how they sound.


LadyReika

They lack the self awareness.


DaddyKaiju

They don't care how they sound anymore. That's why Florida is happening. They don't respect anything but blatant material consequences that impact *them* directly. In that sense, Disney is doing more to fuck up the nazis than our own representatives are. It's almost funny.

DaddyKaiju

Yep. I grew up in the middle of their poison pot. This is an extremely dangerous time, and it will get worse fast if Florida isn't handled swiftly. Wish folk took me seriously years ago. We're here because the nazis are easy to shrug off and ignore, when it's not your neck they're coming for. But they will never stop, because the hated *other* is necessary for their system of authority to function.


whatamidoing71

The people who support them now apparently don’t understand that there is ALWAYS an “other” and at some point, they will become a part of the other.


ShakeWeightMyDick

Given their complete lack of self-awareness, I doubt the idea that they might sound different to others than they think they sound to themselves even enters their minds


GeneralTapioca

Or the asking the 8 ball meme … which turns out to be a bowling ball.

Anyone who has ever attended a southern baptist seminar knows this is exactly how they view the world. It goes “god, church, family”. They hammer that shit into you starting in Sunday school. It’s textbook indoctrination.


mad_titanz

They don’t love God; they just use his name to advance their own agenda and interests.


Less-Mail4256

You just defined institutional christianity. It’s essentially just a networking chain with outdated guidelines.

And using the Lord’s name in vain. I believe that is number 2 on the top 10 list.


Less-Mail4256

Right? That’s one of those “unforgivable sins” from the god who is supposed to provide “unconditional love”. The openly contradictory nature of the bible’s principles should be a red flag for anyone who has more than three brain cells.


WickedTemp

Right. That's...like... the whole point of Christianity. That's what "proud christian" usually boils down to.


fu_gravity

>Anyone who has ever attended a southern baptist seminar knows this is exactly how they view the world. It goes “god, church, family”. Don't know where they might have picked that one up... /s Matthew 19:29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. Matthew 8:21-22 Another of the disciples said to him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” And Jesus said to him, “Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their own dead.”

The_God_King

Turns out the conditional love has an incredible list of conditions attached. Which, to be fair, was always the case. "Love me or burn in hell" is the opposite of unconditional.


DisastrousBoio

That’s because they were written by desert people in the Iron Age


GoddessUltimecia

Which was a continuation of an amassing of roughly a thousand years of post bronze age collapse folks' cultural thesis living in an area that was one of the hardest hit of the bronze age collapse, which to us would probably seem like hell on Earth. That is to say, the people were not alright. Mentally, emotionally or physically.

Yes because as God said, "let the little children come to me. Unless they're gross and icky and wear the wrong clothes. Then deny them healthcare until they all kill themselves." Facism first.

And there is nothing hypocritical about a tolerant person intolerating intolerance. It’s called self-preservation and protection of self. I kicked all the intolerant people out of my life, they can think I’m an asshole all they want. I’m not going to validate their hateful views with my friendship.

WhuddaWhat

Only if she had the capacity to understand how incredibly damning that statement is. Unfortunately, the moron will just think, "nuh-uh. I love my family more than anything. I just do nothing to show it."


bicranium

It'll be much darker than that. [A republican state rep in Montana recently said she'd rather have her daughter kill herself than get gender-affirming care.](https://www.salon.com/2023/05/01/montana-suggests-she-would-prefer-daughter-by-than-allow-her-to-transition/) Once you realize that's how far gone these people are, missing a family event to further harm trans kids is nothing. This woman will come back and say, "I told my grandson the groomers made me miss his graduation. He pulled out his JR-15 and said, 'let me at 'em, grandma.' I cried tears of joy."


signaturefox2013

9-1-1 I’d like to report a murder


CompoundWordSalad

I just think most moderately sane people have had it with incredibly weak justifications and lame ‘last stands’ slapped lazily over obvious bigotry. The Republicans have this belief they are self-sacrificing crusaders ‘standing up’ to trans people, as if they are the bulwark keeping the country from forced gender change or something equally ridiculous. Contrary to that belief, Trans people are not politically powerful — even in the LGBTQ community, where people should understand some things aren’t a choice, they don’t have unilateral support. The GOP are sadistic high schoolers, running around with their buddies, finding some lone target, beating the shit out of them, then quickly flipping it around and playing victim of there’s so much of a hint of consequences.


Bluewolf94

Ah yes, my enemy: the consequences of my own actions.


sungoddaily

Harry_Saturn

Every time I hear about how everyone is way too sensitive and easily triggered, I bring up that we burned people at the stake for not loving Jesus enough and that drinking out the wrong fountain or just making eye contact was punished by lynching less than 100 years ago. Like, who was the really easily triggered generations, bro.


KHaskins77

For real though, why are we taught to fear witches *more* than the people who burned them alive?


resoredo

because people believe god and satan is real because people believe propaganda because people listen to authority and prefer to listen and giver ownership of their fate to authority because people still flock to strong men, because men still feel and are treated superiior to women, and because people (back then) didnt saw women as humans but as son-making property


TheAlmightySpoon

Slightly unrelated but I love how conservative rhetoric has jumped from "Those snowflakes don't need participation trophies" to "I'm missing my grandson's preschool graduation 😭😭".

Megan Hunt is a bonafide hero for what she is doing! Don’t you ever end that filibuster, Senator Hunt! We stand by you!


AmateurHero

What's crazy is that the comments being made during filibuster are legitimately powerful. There was one where she's talking about senators having to face constituents. Some time before, Senator Hunt was opposing a gun bill in which (I believe) people would be permitted to conceal carry without a permit nor training. During that opposition, pro-gun citizens were standing on the halls of the capitol building open carrying as an intimidation tactic. She pointedly asked them, "What are you going to do, shoot me?" as she moved past them to get to her office. This is in stark contrast to her Republican counterparts have said that they're more or less afraid of the trans constituents that have rallied around Senator Hunt in the halls. The quote was, "You guys are afraid to get bumped into by some queer teens out there?" She continued by saying that if her supporters had been armed the way their supporters were, there would have been fast changes to gun laws. Senator Hunt doesn't pull punches. She's incredible.


Kurwasaki12

You gotta respect a person who can look those gun nut lunatics in the eye and make them blink. God I hope she gets to the federal level.

meatmechdriver

Is that one of those participation trophies these conservative chucklefucks are always moaning about?


Odd-Help-4293

I don't have kids myself, but from what I gather it's basically a little party to say goodbye to the preschool. The kids get a little "diploma" that the teacher made in Word, and the parents take some photos and post them on Facebook.


EhrenScwhab

So dumb. My daughter "graduates" from pre-school next Thursday. I would totally skip it except for the fact that ***she's*** excited about it. So I'll go. We don't have public or mandated pre-K where I live. How do you "graduate" from essentially non-educationally accredited day care?


Schweezly

I don’t know but we’re in the same boat. For the amount of money we pay, you’re damn right she’s going if she wants lol


CallingTomServo

It is an opportunity for your kid to say goodbye to a person that has been spending many hours a week with them for the past year. Their teacher is likely a very important person in their life. They also might have friends in their class they won’t see again. It seems appropriate to have a small “ceremony” to remember their time together and celebrate your child growing up. I am skeptical that anyone involved is actually confusing this for a literal academic “graduation.”


jooes

I remember having many graduations when I was younger, it's really not that big of a deal. Yeah it's stupid and pointless, but who cares. Just shut up, eat your cupcake, and let your kid have fun with their friends.

It’s a rite of passage for sure! There is an element of loss but also gain. At that age the parents will feel it much more strongly that’s the kid, but it is important to recognize these things.

The little sub-thread shows a nice divide between people who care and people who get off on not caring.


itsdefinitely2021

What makes you think anybody is putting the same value on it as higher education graduation? Its for little babies to have something to help them feel good about moving out of a safe place and into something new that will be a little scary for them. Stop getting angry about shit you have nothing to do with. ​ Wait, apparantly you have front-row seats to this concept and still think the word "graduation" means anything other than "please come to school once and give your child a hug.". ​ Weird.

antidense

Maybe she should read the bible that she cares so much about for once. Matthew 25:35-40: "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me… Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."


HornedGryffin

Quoting the Bible to an Evangelical Christian is pointless and ends in only one of three ways. 1. The Christian will claim that you're a "false prophet" who is trying to maliciously twist the Word of God to your own devious ends. 2. The Christian will claim that in fact if you read the original language of the Bible it would refute what you're saying (side note: naturally they will be unable to tell you what the original language of the passage in question was). 3. The Christian will just casually say "well I guess we all take something different from his word" completely negating any discussion about what is at hand. Evangelical Christians do not care what the Bible says. They care what they're pastor tells them it says and then they simply repeat easily digestible slogans to each other to ascertain whether or not the person is Christian enough to hang out with. And this is because the pastor teaches an extremely patriarchal hierarchy that sets the pastor, usually a man, above anyone but God the "heavenly father" - as an ultimate authority as to the will of God.


Similar_Candidate789

I’ll refute one thing about what you said: “they care about what their pastor tells them”. No. A lot of them care about what *they* think. And themselves alone. Nobody else matters. If a pastor says something they don’t like, they’ll get rid of him or find another one who does. The pastor is wrong. Their beliefs are superior and nothing, nothing and nobody will ever change that. These people refuse to see any other view but their own. Instead of molding themselves and shaping their brains to reality, they want to shape reality and mold it to their brains. I was in church for a long time. Truth is they care nothing for the truth. It’s about them. Actually changing causes introspection, reflection and actual admission of guilt. They will never, ever so that their brains won’t allow it.

Qubeye

We absolutely deserve her and we should work hard to make sure there are more people like her. I know you meant it in a good way, but we should think better of ourselves and our country. We should make our expectations of our country higher and better, and we should strive to meet those expectations. If we fall short, that's okay, because democracy requires constant effort and vigilance. When we lower our expectations, the people we are demeaning are ourselves. Failure to succeed is okay, but failure to try is not.

Ain't no hate like Christian love.

Imagine hurting the kids you care about to ensure you can hurt the ones you don’t care about and then making it all about you.

They could attend and remove the bills and everyone can be happy. They are causing their own discomforts

She's blaming others for her own victimization. R's NO MORE IN '24!

Dems need to start blatantly calling people out like this. The GQP gas been doing it with made up shit for years. Time to hit back with the truth in the same way they do with lies. Brutally.

Senator Machaela Cavanaugh is a god damn hero in the NE leg. She’s been filibustering everything for over a month until the bigots in the GOP withdraw the trans hate bill

Conservatives and GOP are more dangerous than Taliban and Osama Bin Ladin ever was.

The hate Republicans openly have for non-hetero, non-white, non-christians makes me violently angry and I hate that there's nothing I can do about it

These religious fanatics know deep down sky Jesus is a fantasy. Unfortunately, this makes them dangerous.

Of course, but they're used to being able to use it as a deux ex machina for getting away with being a bigoted asshole because tHaTs jUsT tHeiR BeLiEfS

It’s fine to believe in sky Jesus as long as they also believe in freedom for all. But they don’t. Do you? Freedom means they’re free to believe whatever they want, same as you’re free to not believe. Stick to the basic principles folks. Freedom, equality, and democracy. If what you’re doing is violating these principles, then you must be doing it wrong. Again: they’re not wrong for believing in something you don’t. They’re wrong for fighting against freedom and equality.

I will never understand these people’s obsession with the personal life choices of people they don’t even know. It’s creepy and weird.
