I Live In An Reenactment

It’s not the 1860s in the US, but the 1930s in Germany, with the MAGAts attempting to create the Fourth Reich.

Judd Legum writes at Popular Information:

A particularly aggressive government effort to limit speech is underway in Florida, led by Governor Ron DeSantis (R). A bill championed by DeSantis prohibits any school or private business from engaging in instruction or training that makes anyone “feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress” on account of their race.

Now they have moved on to ‘Don’t Say Gay’: White House denounces new Florida bill. No one is to talk about the reality of of the existence of LGBTQ+ people in the population. What group is next – the Rom, Asians, the disabled, who? (It might force TFG to remove YMCA from his play list 😉 )

DeMentis wants to create a new police agency that answers to him. No explanation as to why the current practice of assigning a reserve sheriff deputy to every polling place isn’t sufficient. No, DeMentis wants his own SchutzStaffel or Politische Staatspolizei.

In Heinrich Heine’s 1821 play Almansor a character makes the point:

Das war ein Vorspiel nur, dort wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen.” (“That was but a prelude; where they burn books, they will ultimately burn people as well.”)

That quote was carved into the stones of the Opernplatz (Opera Square) in Berlin where the major book burnings took place in the Third Reich. There are book burnings in Florida, mostly sponsored by “?religious leaders?” to prove how “pure” they are. This sort of thing can get out of hand, is bad for air quality, and adds to climate change and ignorance.

Yes. You can add the LNP to that. 🤨😠😖

I really don’t understand what Scomo thinks will be the result of his words and actions. He seem to want to annoy everyone and has his own “convoy” problem. You would think the libertarians in the “convoys” would support a conservative government. People aren’t thinking things through. Scomo should just call the election and stop mucking about. Let the voters decide.
