I was unable to put anything together for this week’s post due to time constraints, but I did put up five new images in the STL gallery. I do have four quick points on the week’s news below, though. Be back with a full post next week:
- Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene must be expelled from Congress. This is so painfully obvious I cannot believe I have to advocate for this. There is right and wrong here, people. Stop making excuses for the fascist supporters of these wicked people. We have to draw a line.
- If you have some extra funds to lose, download the Robinhood app and invest in GameStop, Blackberry, or another short-squeezed stock to try and stick it to the oligarchs on Wall Street. Just remember, those stocks will come crashing down to their “real” value sometime soon. So make sure not to be left holding the bag, or don’t use any resources you can’t afford to lose.
- This is getting very old: the Right must stop equating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol to Black Lives Matter protests. One was an attempt to overturn a democratic election (though bourgeois) while the other is resistance against people being murdered in the streets and in their beds by agents of repression. No comparison.
- Facebook is using the excuse that they should be able to take down leftist groups and pages just because they’re trying to get rid of right-wing extremists and Q-anon believers. This goes to the above point in that we are not the same. We are not just differing sides of a “conversation.” There IS right and wrong here.
Thanks for visiting!
