Repressive Leaders

Deja-Vu

Oh boy. Michael Moore did it this time! His recent article on the Huffington Post got my blood boiling. Or really, made me very very sad. Yes folks, it's the "abortion thing" again. You know-- the LEGAL procedure that is suddenly unavailable to women, in ever increasing and scary numbers. Yes folks, in the "Land of the Free".

I can't take credit for the title of this Hub, by the way. That was a reference used by Howard Stern many years ago. Stern, another American whose freedoms were treated lightly and spuriously by the Christian Right; who rigidly control a large part of our government. Yes folks, in this country of "Separation of Church and State"! Do you see where I am going with this? Just wait. You won't believe it.

Here is what our illustrious freedom-loving officials are doing with OUR rights and the laws of OUR land:

"Bart Stupak is threatening to derail it (the healthcare bill) because he wants to make sure that no woman who buys her own insurance with her own money is able to have a medically-insured abortion. We're not talkin' about federally-funded abortions -- those were stupidly outlawed long ago. Bart Stupak doesn't like that the Democrats' bill doesn't prohibit private insurance programs, set up for those whose employers don't provide it, from providing abortion coverage if they get any federal funding -- even to an individual woman paying without any government help. That's it."--Michael Moore

We Pay For These

Taxpayer funded

Taxation Without Representation

Her OWN insurance with her OWN money! Now mind you--these are the SAME people who will defend Israel's right to blow up little babies in Gaza, or shower innocent civilians with white phosphorous, or carpet-bomb a country, or send targeted attacks from a computer in Virginia. The self-same people don't want a woman to stop a pregnancy from happening; so a human being is spared being born into a world of poverty, fear and suffering. Because, as you know, it is also these same officials who never want to spend a single tax dollar on the poor! That is THEIR money and don't you forget it.

Excuse me if I don't take seriously your claim of following Jesus. Excuse me if I think you are just as repressive as the Taliban. You just couch it in other terms don't you? You couch it in standing up for the rights of the Zygote. Unbelievable. And wrong.

Do We Need More Impoverished Kids?

Female Nostradamus

Whenever this issue comes up, it always reminds me of a book I read years ago. It's called The Handmaid's Tale, and is written by Canadian author Margaret Atwood. When I first read this book, I felt "this is happening here!" In my own country. See if you don't agree:

"Beginning with a staged terrorist attack killing the President and ousting Congressblamed on Muslim terrorists, a movement calling itself the "Sons of Jacob" launched a revolution under the pretext of restoring order, suspending the US Constitution. Given electronic banking they were quickly able to freeze the assets of all women and other undesirables in the country, stripping their rights away. The new theocratic military dictatorship, styled "The Republic of Gilead", moved quickly to consolidate its power and reorganize society along a new militarized, hierarchical, compulsorily-Christian regime of Old Testament-inspired social and religious orthodoxy among its newly-created social classes."

Eeri, huh? And scary too! It is quite possible that this IS happening in our country 2010. There has undeniably been a tremendous erosion of female reproductive rights in the past 20 years...rights that were fought so hard for! Women went to jail, starved themselves, lost their families to secure this right. Where I live, there is no accesss to abortion whatsoever. Providers have been scared off, or run out of town by the nasty Viperish Operation Rescue thugs.

Punished For Not Stoning A Fellow Handmaid To Death

Extremism, complacency and trauma

Extremism, complacency and trauma

The New Inquisition

You can also visit a "church" with a carnival atmosphere, go inside and see a real aborted fetus. Sorry they don't also make available pictures of the little babies in Iraq born to mothers who have been subjected to depleted uranium....that is heartbreaking to see.

Make no mistake about it, this current political climate is a war zone. It's a war for our freedoms and ability to afford a decent life against the forces of religion and money. If you can't feel it, it's because you are not on the targetted end of this so-called Democracy. The view from here is very scary indeed. And harsh. It's no Liberty and Justice for women, it's back to the stone ages.

American Taliban.

“The “umbrella man” who was seen on video in Minneapolis smashing store windows with a sledgehammer and encouraging people to steal, has been identified as a person associated with the Aryan Cowboys — a white supremacist prison and street gang.

Police said the man also was present during "an incident in Stillwater Minnesota where a Muslim woman was racially harassed by a group of motorcycle club members wearing Aryan Cowboy leather vests."

His actions transformed peaceful protests into danger zones, the affidavit said. He's also accused of spray painting "free s--- for everyone zone" on the doors of an AutoZone before he smashed in the windows. The store was broken into and set on fire, the affidavit said.”

*****

Affidavit. That means sworn under oath. That story in the Bible of the mother who stole the rightful sons blessing?….that’s the type of people we’re dealing with.

Liars. Deceivers. Theives.

And white Christian supremacy is the basis for it.

In fact, there was video of two white women with Russian accents, spray painting BLM on buildings, and a black woman telling them to stop.

They must be met on their level. Gutter. Sorry to say.

Well, no. Why stoop down like that?

Just at least know what you’re dealing with. Pure evil.

Now that we’re all in this country….all colors, all nations, all religions, all cultures….

That type of mindset doesn’t stand a chance. It’s there, but it’s not the majority.

That’s why they’re creating laws to make voting null and void.

Yes, that’s what a psy op does. C’mon, we’ve done plenty of them ourselves. Iran, Venezuela…etc. We created the Mujahideen, now Taliban…..I saw a video of Brezhzinky….Mika’s father, talking to a mujahadeen soldier about this. He said they were doing “gods work”….

Anyway, it’s a Putin psyop.

Attack doctors and nurses, protest at hospitals, refuse to wear masks, get violent about it.

Refuse the vaccine, but use up all the hospitals when you get Covid, and more and more…..businesses refusing to serve people with masks.

Most important, get violent.

“United Nations experts tasked with monitoring human rights abuses across the globe are condemning Texas' near-total abortion ban as a clear violation of international law, characterizing the state's newly imposed restrictions as "profoundly discriminatory" and dangerous.

Melissa Upreti, a human rights lawyer and the chair of the U.N.'s working group on discrimination against women and girls, toldThe Guardian on Tuesday that the Texas ban "violates a number of rights guaranteed under international law" and represents "structural sex and gender-based discrimination at its worst."

"This new law will make abortion unsafe and deadly, and create a whole new set of risks for women and girls," said Upreti, who argued that the U.S. Supreme Court's refusal to block the Texas ban "has taken the entire country backward" on reproductive rights, potentially imperiling abortion access throughout much of the nation.“

Biden has 63% favorability overall.

Hubpages forums are 99% anti Biden.

Biden has 71% approval on how he’s handling Covid.

Hubpages forum is full of anti vaxx conspiracies, and “Covid is a hoax” people.

So really, what gives? Why is there such a nest of far rightwingers and their allies here, and woeful lack of opposing views?

I think it’s by design. And I think someone should look in to it. I think there is a group of far righters who rule. Mostly women. But some men, too.

And they get the moderators do their bidding......allowing them to insult and malign, making sure their detractors go away.

How else do you explain it? It is so off course with reality.

It’s like when talk radio got taken over by the far right.....people used to say, “Oh, people just like it better, that’s all”.

Bull!

I live in a blue state! We do not like far right talk better! That also, was by design.

As Bannon the Leninist said, “flood the zone with bullshit.”

And they have.

What’s this about a “Fellowship”, too? Is a that what they call themselves?

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on May 12, 2021:

You are not noble thinkers. You care about money and forcing others to bow to your man-god.

USC used to be free to California residents. It was the beacon of educational excellence.

I believe every state used to offer college free for residents.

Now, it takes 30 years to pay back college loans.

Which is better?

Social Security is a loan program. But republicans want the bank to become the middle man.....charge you for getting your money back.

Seriously? Give me a break.

And soon we will be talking about how we used to be able to read stories for free on the internet.....

It is fast becoming difficult to read anything other than opinion.

What ever happened to PUBLIC utilities?

First we have to pay to use the internet......now we have to pay to read information, too.

I get that we always have paid for newspapers and magazines, so it follows they want us to pay for their stories.........but we already pay for use of the internet! Shouldn’t everything else be factored in?

Where is public service anymore? They are PUBLIC airwaves. And it irks me to have to pay for every single newspaper article that comes out!

The Hopi prophecy is real. We will destroy everything before we find out “you can’t eat money”.

Oh joy....another rightwinger in the forums.....

“Joined 12 minutes ago from Italy”

Joined to speak on Biden, not write hubs, eh?

Sigh. Dont you have enough far righters in here? It’s like 12 to 1 now. Plus a fake liberal.

What is going on? Is this America, where a Biden won handily?

Very suspect hp.

“Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) pushed the "Big Lie" that Trump won the 2020 election during a Friday evening rally at a Florida retirement community with Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL).

"God bless you guys," Greene said.

"Alright, I just got to check something, I just want to make sure I'm the right place," she said. "Tell me, who is your president?"

"Trump!" the crowd roared in response as Greene pumped a fist in the air.

"That's my president, too," she told them. "I just want to be sure I'm with friends and family, not with antifa or BLM or Democrat (sic) socialists.

"Did anyone in here vote for Joe Biden? Do you guys really think he won?" she ask as the crowd shouting "no" despite the fact Joe Biden did, in fact, win.”

********

So what is to be done about this? She is obviously stoking hate and division.....is this what her people are paying her to do? That’s what they voted for?

I say it’s just a matter of time before someone does someone harm, because of it.

How many times do we need to watch the same movie? Change the dam channel. Shut her off.

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on May 04, 2021:

This is acceptable to you....

“The left is the modern version of the KKK. Hunting down those who they perceive as different, tarring and feathering them and then parading them around to the cheers of their members. Trying to lynch their reputation and working to castrate any person of color who deigns to disagree with their dogma.

I remember the democratic KKK in the south. They wrapped their racism in religion. The modern religion of the left is no different from the attempts to indoctrinate the young to support the beliefs of the democrats KKK back then.

They are a plague on decent society just as they were in the past.“

******

Also, calling people anti semites is acceptable to you.

Well, you had better get busy......lecturing all those black and Jewish Americans who voted for the KKK.

Good luck.

Lol, Trumpers care about the homeless?

“In 2019, more than halfway through his presidency, President Donald Trump began talking about homelessness. In a tone unrecognizable to recent administrations, Republican or Democrat, Trump sympathized with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on national TV as he lamented the “junkies” and “filth” on city streets.”

Yeah.....Tell me how you care.

Another transparent political attack on Biden. So transparent as to be stoooopid!

He couldn’t be more wrong. But......as we’ve seen, reality is not a maga strong suit.

It’s almost like....toy army versus real army....

“No, the history books will be clear about those who coddled and engendered Trump’s madness in the name of political power. And in the end, he made sure that Trump would face no penalty or justice for whipping up a storm of white supremacist anger that attacked the U.S. Capitol and killed a police officer. As his one-time challenger Charles Booker noted Saturday, “Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul would have voted differently if the people who stormed the Capitol looked like me.”

“He is someone who recovered from his addiction to cocaine. Something wrong with that?”

Ask Don Jr.. He mocks Hunter Biden for it. And looks to me like Junior is still using.

But we all know how it goes with the rightwing. “If you white, you all right”, and “everything is ok if I do it, it’s only a crime for you”

Hence, 6 years of “lock her up”, and total indifference to a violent insurrection.

You can bet, if the storming of the capitol were Muslims or BLM, they would be calling for heads to roll.

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on February 08, 2021:

A charter school in Utah was going to allow parents to opt out of black history month curriculum.....

And a guy on twitter says,

“As a graduate of the Utah public school system I had to take multiple, required "Utah History" classes that were largely just explanations of Mormonism written by Mormons in a thinly veiled attempt to convert non-Mormons.

Wonder why I couldn't opt out of those.”

*******

The school has since put the curriculum back....but it made me think of this:

Tom Arnold says the Mormons who run MGM are very racist. And, they have the power to release those Apprentice tapes of Trump being racist and misogynist in a very bad way.

But they won’t. And he says they’re re also protecting Mark Burnett, because he has so much power and is very good friends with Trump.

Seems like all this talk of “Hollywood elites” is directed at the wrong people.....just like the paedophile accusations.....

I'm increasingly outraged about this. Republicans, elected and not, are deliriously kicking at the very foundations of our country. For Trump. It's appalling.”

Now I get it.......

Quite a few you tubers have found fault with the whole Floyd incident. They’re saying it’s fake.

Well, if they’re right, now I see why.

Trump is calling out the National Guard to shoot looters.

That was the goal all along.

Create a situation you knew would allow you to kill black people. Imo.

Why hasn’t the cop been charged? We all saw it, didnt we?

Did you know, he was on stage with Trump at one of his rallies?

The skeptics are claiming the video of the incident doesn't fit the narrative.

Now we have Trump:

“when the looting starts, the shooting starts.“

What did you want people to do when they see another murder like that?

And you can bet, the agitprop actors are out there encouraging looting.

This is what strong men do.....like China now taking over Hong Kong, Duterte outright shooting addicts in the street, and Trump telling the national guard to shoot people.

This is the America you want? Not me. And we didn’t vote for it, either. You stole it.

And now I see why.

F*cking despicable.

"While many see different issues in silos, we are clear that LGBTQIA people are directly and disproportionately impacted by police violence, incarceration, unaffordable healthcare, homelessness, deportation, and economic inequality among other things."
