Open Thread | This Is Political Disenfranchisement😠😠

This is deliberate.
From the sabotaging of the 2020 Census, to racist gerrymandering done by the GOP all across the country, this is nothing but political disenfranchisement.😠😠😠

And this is what the VRA is supposed to protect. It’s why the radical conservative SCOTUS gutted it.

The only silver lining to this, is that it’s so blatantly racist that it will hopefully have an easier time going through the courts so it might be addressed.

Anyone still need a definition of “systemic racism”? This is done to purposely dilute the power of minority votes with reduced representation in Congress.

Lousiana…the state that LITERALLY CREATED THE ” ONE DROP RULE”😠😠😠

    I identity with the struggle Zoomer kids have to deal with, because the older adults have left that emergent generation with literally nothing to build on: no hope of home ownership, no viable job opportunities. No wonder they are angry/apathetic in a way Millennials seldom were.

    “America First” is a slogan both used by the KKK and Nazi sympathizers in the US such as Charles Lindbergh who wanted America to stay out of WW II. It’s no wonder today’s GOP has latched on to it.

    I don’t know about y’all, but it looks like the cornerstones of potential authoritarianism aren’t having a good year. Not that it’s a clean sweep for the alternative, but it appears that the seemingly insurmountable forces of strongman politics are taking big hits globally…

    Corey Richardson (@vexedinthecity) tweeted at 8:07 AM on Sun, Nov 27, 2022:
    None of these are a reason to smile just yet but it is cause for some less than cautious optimism. Even in places where the authoritarians are “winning,” their grip on long term power is tenuous. Especially if they’re client states to regimes that are being weakened by protest…

    As a Gen Xer, I think that this is true. My parents were of the Greatest Generation (they were both 40+ when I was born) and thus, being from the South (Mississippi and Tennessee), their entire lives were shaped by growing up in the Police State known as American Apartheid.

    My personal opinion is that Gen X broke along racial lines because our parents were Silent Generation.

    Silent Generation white people generally went to the grave angry that anything had changed since 1957. Silent Generation Black people lived through late-stage segregation.

    @Budda_in_Shadow and I have had conversations about the difference in the lives it makes in white Gen-Xers, if your parents are Boomers versus your parents being SG.

    So it turns out that Boomer parents tended to be more liberal than SG and likely transmitted far less bigotry.

    Black & white Gen X also diverged because Gen X was the first generation to live completely in a world where significant civil rights movements had not only begun, but were on a slow path towards fulfillment.

    Depending on what kind of family one grew up in, either your parents were the types who welcomed change, or they were the types that resisted & resented it. If your parents resisted & resented any & all social change, that attitude was passed to the next generation.

    Why do we need 51 senators rather than 50? Because right now at 50/50 every committee has a tie. Moving anything out of committee requires a superhuman effort. If Dems win a 51st seat, they’ll have committee majorities.

    The Georgia runoff MATTERS.

    Re-electing Warnock MATTERS.

    Tristan Snell (@TristanSnell) tweeted at 5:49 PM on Mon, Nov 28, 2022:
    And why else? Because in 2024, out of 33 senate seats up for election, Dems will be defending 23, the GOP only 10.

    So any seat we pick up now gives us an edge in 2 years.
