I really hope Americans get rid of that dangerous right wing lunatic in congress, by which I mean all of the people in congress.
Marjorie Taylor Greene is not more crazy than all the DC politicians who agree the US should maintain planetary hegemony using bombs, regime change ops, starvation sanctions and nuclear threats. She’s just a less popular genre of crazy.
There is an ideological struggle to determine whether the Republican Party will be the kind of bat shit crazy that believes in QAnon and Jewish Space Lasers or just the kind of bat shit crazy that believes in carpet bombing Iran and destroying the ecosystem for money.
Stop normalizing status quo politics.
Stop normalizing ecocide.
Stop normalizing imperialism.
Stop normalizing mass murder.
Stop normalizing nuclear standoffs.
Stop normalizing starvation sanctions.
Stop normalizing exploitation.
Stop normalizing oppression.
Stop normalizing the mainstream so-called “centrists” who promote these extremist evils.
If people could really grasp how horrific our status quo is, wingnut freaks like Marjorie Taylor Greene wouldn’t stand out against the background, because everyone who helps bolster this murderous and depraved status quo is also a wingnut freak. And there would be just as urgent a push to cast out all the other freaks as there is to cast out her.
The ruling class keeps Americans as poor as possible so they can’t use their money to do naughty things like fund leftist political campaigns or sabotage hedge funds.
People are like two clicks away from burning Wall Street to the ground and setting up guillotines and mainstream analysts are still wringing their hands about how gamer trolls might be compromising the integrity of the market somewhat.
The Democratic Party has a big tent coalition ranging all the way from billionaires, to the lackeys of billionaires, to people who owe favors to billionaires, to people who have been propagandized by billionaires. The whole entire spectrum.
There is absolutely no way the Democratic Party makes the drastic changes we will need to avoid climate collapse or nuclear war.
