No, it’s far worse…. socialism!!!

I heard from Tucker that this can only mean the death of America if we don’t charge people a fee for being born with a genetic condition that can’t be cured and can only be treated daily.

Remember when gay marriage was going to destroy the fabric of American society. And now nobody gives a shit.

They need to find the next thing that will destroy America, otherwise, how else will they keep their audience in a constant state of paranoid frenzy?

I'm in a pretty constant paranoid frenzy from things that are PROVABLY destroying lives. If you really want to scare people, you don't need imaginary boogeymen. Reality is terrifying enough all on its own.

There's people that give a shit, blame all their woes on it, and are actively trying to bring cases before our conservative SCOTUS to have that ruling reversed.

Oh, of course. "Destroying the fabric of American society" actually means "pisses me off that these people are allowed to exist."

Its thier personal fabric, as in thier own realm.

Its always about one selfish endeavor or another

Ok so, first: Nobody was talking about political parties. If you immediately went to "Oh shit, are they talking about me?" then that's on you.

Second: Didn't the last Republican president brush off a literal Neo-Nazi rally as not a big deal because there were some "very fine people" on both sides?

The American right and especially TFG meet every single one of there criteria for being a fascist. What's the old saying? If the shoe fits?

This short video shows what those criteria are.

Have you seen drug prices? What do you think caused that? Obviously the gays with their aids, ffs

u/A_wild_so-and-so Jan 15 '22

Or rock n roll, or Dungeons & Dragons, or Mortal Kombat, or rap music, or interracial marriage, or ... or...

What do you mean, a lot happened

u/-ShagginTurtles- Jan 15 '22

Now they pretend like that wasn't them fighting against that. Same thing like drinking booze, smoking dope or giving women rights. When the hindsight makes you always look shitty, and the economy still sucks under right wing governments just as much as liberal ones (bc they basically have the exact same policies), maybe you're just on the shitty side y'know

u/A1sauc3d Jan 15 '22

Right! Blows my mind. Or how they said “global warming isn’t really happening”, then they said “okay it’s happening but it’s not that bad so we shouldn’t worry” next, now all they got is “okay it’s bad, but it wasn’t humans fault!” How can you see your side continually changing their stance and not think it’s a little suspicious.

Allowing the gays to marry and legalizing marijuana have literally destroyed our society. God is looking down on Adam and Steve hitting each other's bongs and shaking his fists in fury.
