beto has realized the extent of our shared nightmare. it has kept him awake for weeks, the depths of it unfolding in his dreams like an endless maw, its breath reeking of the devoured.
booker says "hey thanks for tuning in dude, glad you made it to the party, fucking, finally"
electoral politics is a low-leverage, high-cost front with very strange properties. generally speaking it's bread and circuses for one of the two americas. they will wake up tomorrow, imagine biden did fine, and return to enacting the kyriarchy in the countless ways one does. the nightmare goes on, and on, and on...
castro and booker talked about the nightmare. biden, sanders, warren... couldn't. even warren and sanders stumbled, refrained, remained wary of discussing it beyond the scope of their economics. they recognize the nightmare's power, its continuing reign, and that they seek office among its organs.

it's strange to see yang assume ron paul's throne as the alt-centrist libertarian. markets are great, you just need more money! he reflects how the libertarian-fascist split went down after 2016.
biden melted on stage multiple times. his campaign seems like a Weekend at Bernie's spinoff, propping up a rotting man to use his image and influence, protected by the collective presumption that nothing so strange as that could ever really happen.
i feel like i'm watching beto realize there are two americas in real time. i'm still realizing that too, fwiw, so i feel a sympathy when i see this battered, sleepless man decry systemic failures rooted in a twisted, festering malice... only to have booker, a centrist, describe life in america as "hell" as he thanks beto for deciding to believe his eyes when they witness injustice. it underscored the complex tension between people waking up because of DJT, and people who have had to stay awake to survive.
It's #thickthighsthursday again!! This is the Jen stretching out edition bc wheeew I am tight everywhere!

This is an ethnic cleansing operation, and they have the backing of all of capitalism, with both Republicans and capitalist Democrats like Pelosi all voting for that bill to fund them without any sort of oversight.
War is coming, folks. For many, it's already here. But it's going to impact far, far more people before all is said and done.
I only hope the side that's protecting life wins, and that we win before too many deaths occur.
I compiled a google drive of anti-racism/whiteness readings for my writing course students
cause the best way to teach people to read and think critically is to confront their own shit
A lot of it is from the book We Have Not Been Moved: Resisting Racism and Militarism in 21st Century America by PM Press
There is a town in Maine called Skowhegan. The city is built atop mass graves of the Abenaki people who were massacred by colonists.
Earlier this year, after much protest and many meetings, they finally decided to retire the highschools mascot of an indian.
Today, members on the schoolboard, city council, police force, postal workers and many others within the network of local businesses are all openly racist against native peoples. Hundreds of death threats have been directed towards Penobscot women, especially towards our tribal ambassador, there have been rape threats, comments on lynching, and murder.
Native women are 10x more likely to go missing or be murdered than any other group in the country.
So many white people are still selling merchandise with racist caricatures on it, some sell a "scalp towel", others are crying about their "Indian Pride"
This shit is literally throughout the entire city. It's like a virus.
