Global Void Called USA

Preaching Open Rebellion; Trump Unhinged

From a Fringe to a US Presidency - White Supremacy

As I have written, a direct link with the British Empire, Colonization and the scourge of Brexit: rightwing Conservatives today.

An excellent long-read in The New Yorker ... astonishing to say the least! Lawlessness in an immigration country build on the lives of too many "savages" of the indigenous tribes, Native Americans, and the import of slaves from the Dark African continent.

For Sarah Hegazy: In Rage, in Grief, in Exhaustion | HRW |

Marking a year after her arrest, from exile in Canada, Sarah wrote, "Even after my release, fear of everyone, family, friends, and the street continued to haunt me." She wrote about how abuse and threats in Egypt forced her to leave her country, for fear that she would be arrested again, or killed. She wrote about her alienation and isolation, her suicide attempts, and how she could not return home to mourn after her mother died.

She said, "A year after the Mashrou' Leila concert, a year after [Egypt's] biggest security attack against gay people, a year after I announced my difference (Yes, I am a gay), I have not forgotten my enemies. I have not forgotten the injustice that left black spots carved in my soul and bleeding, spots that doctors had never been able to treat."

What does it mean to arrive to "safety" in a foreign country, to sit alone with trauma and grief, robbed of any lifeline, and connected only through a computer screen?

"...The ct's logic bears on their inapplicability to labor law, too, under the CRA and 14th Amd. Wherever you see the word 'marriage' (below) insert the word 'employment.'"

What was the question?

No, it is not.

Trump is bloviating on script. Press corpse is fulminating SCOTUS intrigues in de basement of Capitol.

(pun intended)

Free exercise (all 1st Am clauses) and 2nd Amd are BAKED INTO every SCOTUS civil rights opinion since dirt. atm, Press is floundering to handicap dread Roberts, Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, and scalito, tho' christ Kennedy not yet cold and social media "influencers" are twisting like mad dogs to piss RBG's grave.

Next day, SCOTUS rules against Texass et al. injunction of DACA regulations, press picks Sotomayor "ethnic" hero for day, inexplicably passing over Congress' 30-year FAIL to enact "path to citizenship". Abstruse ant-racist, BIPOC "policy" analyses ensue--endorsing Biden.

What LGTB agitators (all "race or ethnicity" and "sex" not BLACK) will learn in short order is: (1) Religious establ'ts are exempt by statute from most CRA tests; (2) plaintiff's burden of proof in civil lit'n is HIGH and access to discovery is NARROW (watch for suits alleging med benefit discrimination FAIL but for en banc settlements); and (3) end of the road, regardless of POTUS in foreseeable future.

All along, the identarians each "struggled" for shares of public benefits, while ignoring that personal vindication does not open funnels of class liberation.

In USA, all institutions, even the identity groups, defend private equity.
