This is blatantly unconstitutional.

[-] SinningStromgald 108 points 8 months ago

That's pretty much the Republican party at this point. Project 2025 either convinces you the Republicans are going to far and avoid them like the plague or it speaks to all your petty fears and hates convincing you that only the Republicans are the party for you.

The real problem, in my experience, is the large number of people. from all over the political spectrum, who will say, "Oh, that's not what the party wants, that's not what the politicians will do, it's just some people saying things." and just like, NO THEY REALLY DO WANT TO LINE ME AND HALF THE PEOPLE I KNOW UP AGAINST THE WALL AND SHOOT US DEAD, really seriously truly they do.

And even if they don’t it’s what they’ll try to do. I heard that exact statement about overturning roe for my entire life

It's "surely they won't actually do those things..." to, "well, it's still better than being a Democrat" then vote for them giddily.

That's pretty much the Republican party at this point.

And then they use the very same taxpayer dollars they're supposedly so concerned about to defend the inevitable lawsuits.

In Germany we had the NPD (now we have AfD), in the USA ypu have the Republican Party!

[-] CharlesDarwin 1 points 8 months ago

The fact of the matter is that it's been the Republican party for decades, at least. It's just now, with donnie Bin Laden and those who now feel emboldened because of him, the mask is off.

It's now very difficult for the corporate bothsiderist "liberal media" to pretend otherwise - though they sure do continue to try...

Brought to you by the traitor cunts who want to install fucking trump as dictator.

Is it? What would ~~Thomas Clarence~~ Clarence Thomas say? What about Sam Alito? Because that's who they'll be asking if it's illegal or not.

I once had a philosophy professor that said "The only black person in America that hates other black people is ~~Thomas Clarence~~Clarence Thomas." And, aside from the fact that Candace Owens exists, Clarence is one of the most far right...errr...injustices on the court.

You know your criticism of Justice Thomas would be a lot more compelling if you knew his name.

The real problem is I'm drunk. So....yeah

[-] [email protected] 1 points 8 months ago

Problem? Sounds like the solution to me

[-] [email protected] 1 points 8 months ago

I think I need another solution.

[-] PostmodernPythia 5 points 8 months ago

That has not stopped the right before.

[-] bluestribute 3 points 8 months ago

Unless it's being used to protect school shooters, why would Republicans care about the constitution?

[-] CharlesDarwin 1 points 8 months ago

Since when has the right ever (really) cared about that?

[-] ShadowGlider 0 points 8 months ago

It somehow violates two seperate parts of the 1st amendment, which would be slightly impressive if it weren't being used to kill people
