    The alt right/maga crowd is now pushing government control and censorship... Well they were always, but now they are doing it openly.

    They don't even try to hide their fascist desires any more, do they?

    Fascism is back in fashion. The US even supports it overseas.

    It is sad to watch.

    Reagan with all his problems would never have called people wearing swastikas "good people."

    I seriously doubt, as well, that he would have defended some asshat flying a Nazi flag from his porch, either, like some of our Reichwingers did here in the last couple of days.

    The scary thing is to think about how much worse the Republicans would get if they continue this trend.

    Their #MaliciousMessiah taught them that the Constitution is just a piece of old paper and to disregard it, except of course for their beloved 2A.

    The most insane thing is that it is a FELONY.

    To challenge this law, teachers would have to risk spending years in prison. Heck, even if a teacher accidentally brings a book into school, they are risking spending years in prison.

    For their own safety, teachers should not keep books in their car, because it might accidentally enter the school. You think I am joking, but really think about it. Marijuana possession in Florida will get a maximum sentence of a year, but almost certain time served (usually a few hours). Book possession will get you a MINIMUM of one year in prison. Children books are far more illegal than drugs in Florida.

    No man. You went total troll after your coup failed in 2020. But - I'll tell you what - I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. I'll be civil. When I ask you to prove something you say - you're going to have to either show me what you're basing your claim on or admit you pulled it out of your ass.

    I'm also not going to put up with any racist shit. So, if you plan to do that, you're not going to like my responses.

    We'll see how it goes.

    Trump also said there were some "good people" on the Campus Commie Scum side at Charlottesville. I don't see the same outrage at the same quote from the Right. So the Diploma Dumbo Left is begging the question, as usual.

    They should also ban The Catcher in the Rye, which glorifies a whiney Preppy brat. Holden (what kind of name is that?) Caulfield was pushed as a kid having typical teenage problems. Those who were fooled by it, but didn't have Daddy's Money to get them out of all the problems that spoiled and sheltered nitpicking attitude would lead to later, were set off on the wrong track. It was the beginning of the greatest delusion in American history: "richkids on our side."
