  1. The powerless, are losing in the USA. The working class. The poor are losing. Poor whites. Non whites, gays, women, children, elderly and the disabled.

    Their greed and violence, has no bounds. Brownshirts, turned loose across the USA to harass black, gay, trans, progressive people. I never thought, I would see these Orwellian times, in the USA. Organised Nazis and fascist thugs, bankrolled by the rich. The dystopian propaganda. Nazis and overt fascists, running the Republican party. The corporate Democrats, allowing them to take over.

    I’m not pro or anti-trans but, Bruce Jenner’s ex-wife married Robert Kardashian. Bruce Jenner is now Caitlin. She is transexual. Caitlin Jenner is a Republican so, she is not threatened.

    Republican’s are blaming gays and trans people, for inflation. They are blaming the poor, working people, and people of color, for everything else. Trump’s neonazi gangs, are going out, to beat up people.

    Trump did a coup . They threatened to kill congress people and, Mike Pence. Trump has no criminal charges, since the Jan 6, sedition. 5 people killed there. Numerous injuries. Destruction of property.

    Never in my life would I have believed, that Nazism or genocidal-racism and, fascism, would take over the 🇺🇸 USA.
