uspol, terrorism, racism and accepted targets 

What happened was a surprise to the U.S. power structure not because they didn't know white terrorism was dangerous and the police were in on it. It was a shock because white supremacist terrorism was supposed to stick to *acceptable* targets while helpfully upholding the settler colonialism the country was founded on and runs on.

White terrorists broke this wink-and-nod pact when they turned their violence and intimidation to the wrong side. That's why the government is reacting now. That's why some semblance of consequence is lumbering into view. Not because the fash were destructive and violent, which they always were, but because they were expected to leverage violence in the service of the white supremacist government, not against it.

BIPOC: White supremacists are targeting and killing us
U.S. Government: Very fine people on both sides UwU
BIPOC: Police need to stop killing us with impunity
U.S. Government: Blue lives matter! 🇺🇸
White supremacists: Right we're going to storm the heart of government now
Police: And we're going to help them
U.S. Government: :pika_surprise:

Kill your heroes 

Also if you read this, I may need encouragement to actually write this, if you've appreciated my words about stuff like this in the past.

uspol, terrorism, schadenfreude 

While I am and will always be salty that white supremacist terrorists were allowed to hurt and even kill people with impunity until they crossed the line into the seat of the colonialist-settler government, I still do feel a certain glee at them literally crying out loud because they've been placed on no-fly lists. It was far too long in coming but how's that tiny taste of consequence, bitches? :blobcoffee:

Kill your heroes 

But also something about losing your heroes.

Mourning the people you wanted them to be. Mourning the people you thought they were when you was idealistic and naive, and young.

I think it's words we need to hear once in a while, that is easy to get attracted and attached to this idea of who someone is and then disregard who they actually are. Who they keep defending again and again...
With "slippery slope" arguments, or "it was just a joke bro".

Something something sunken cost, having invested in believing in someone, do you really want to give that up? It's hard to. But after the first time, it gets a little easier.

Once you've seen it you can't unsee it, it's everywhere. And once you can see it, it's your responsibility to do something about it, or you're complicit.

Or as the quote goes:
“The trouble is that once you see it, you can't unsee it. And once you've seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing, becomes as political an act as speaking out. There's no innocence. Either way, you're accountable.”

Sometimes I think the people who view the US as not salvageable are the people who give me the most hope for the future

I just read Jack's stupid thread. Some of Greenwald's takes, which I shouldn't be surprised about...

I really need to continue / start / finish writing my things about deplatforming Nazis.

No, you were standing at the bathroom sink for far too long after cleaning your teeth, watching the water drain freely because you unblocked the drain this afternoon!

and really i know theres likely to be more violence, the mask has been ripped off and it feels we are out the otherside of people being able to claim this isn't a real thing and its all just a joke.

Well since 2017 i've been saying that this was the "ironic" decade (in very heavy inverted commas as in the sort of "its just a joke" that people hide behind to do what they secretly want) and it was going to end with some sort of "ironic" giant finale, which ok it was 6 days off but hey pretty close.

The breathless way that white friends recommend I read Jemisin or Butler is EXTREMELY IRRITATING. I *love* SF/F! I read them EXTENSIVELY! I look over the Hugo and Nebula lists every year to make choices! I pay attention to different literary awards and try to find new authors to read FAIRLY CONSTANTLY! I read short stories from Tor and Clarkesworld and Strange Horizons and EVERYTHING IN-BETWEEN.

Why the FUCK would you assume I don't know about two of the BIGGEST NAMES IN SFF? WHY?
