i agree
i'm beginning to feel like  there are some words that could be used in a dramatic fashion in the media
because attention/clicks
i think it was abe lincoln that posted something about definitions being important (don't quote me on that)
if you ever have the time, this guy does a pretty decent job of explaining his position/thoughts on stuff
i like that he reads and cites uses/sources

According to the Livingston police chief most of them were from out of state—mostly Evergreen Washington.

This whole issue is pure theater.  Just look at Texas.  Last year, a state representative filed a bill to ban drag shows that a bar listed as "family-friendly".  I have no idea what that means or if it was indeed "safe for families"... but of course this guy, Bryan Slaton, had his popularity skyrocket.

Fast forward to last month, when the same guy was forced to resign after getting an intern drunk and having sex with her.  Note the headlines... he was expelled by the God-fearing Texas house the day after he resigned.  They really put their foot down on that one!

Of note in that story above, he stopped at a drug store to get his victim some "morning after" drugs to make sure this "family man" didn't start another family outside of his marriage.  Of course, he's the guy in 2021 that introduced legislation to make abortion a capital offense in Texas.   As quoted, the honorable Mr. Slayton said: â€œThe bill will end the discriminatory practice of terminating the life of innocent children, and will guarantee the equal protection of the laws to all Texans, no matter how small".    I guess his innocent children don't count?

So it's not the drag queens you need to stay away from, it's the folks crusading against them who are truly dangerous.

You literally can't make this shit up.

maybe a bit risque no?

"Cancel culture" is a term constantly lauded by the right, initially to describe responses to their actions or words.  Yes, it can get absurd very often, but to use it as a factor for defining "fascism" is a stretch.  If you want a clear example of a power which seeks to "silence any opposition or debate regarding disagreeable thoughts or ideas rather than engage in a debate and discuss the differences in view points" look no further than the governor of Florida, as well as the legislatures of several other states.  If they don't like drag shows (jeez, what would Milton Berle have to say about that?), or people who are not like they are, just ignore them like they do school shootings.

The Constitution said we should all have access to guns.  It said nothing about allowing seductive indoctrination/grooming dances performed by those who reject their God-given plumbing.  That's not free speech...it's dangerous (remember...guns are for the militia to protect us).

PS - You can also ignore the 14th Amendment about paying our bills... it helps to reduce the number of IRS agents who might recover what's owed by those who don't like to pay taxes (another Constitutional power they'd rather ignore... that "promote the general Welfare" crap was before there were so many counting on social security and medicare).

I'll go with Orwell.  A noted anti fascist.  He's been pretty much more right than wrong with his observations as we have come to see.  

While it has definitions, these days it seems to be used against anything or anyone you disagree with and find a need to use a label to dismiss rather than discuss the item or actions in question.  Which is a fascist characteristic.  Silence any opposition or debate regarding disagreeable thoughts or ideas rather than engage in a debate and discuss the differences in view points.  ie, cancel culture.  And which side of the aisle is the chief proponent of cancel culture ?

From USA Today a few weeks ago...

When Republican lawmakers and talking heads speak these days, this is what I hear:

“I HATE liberal cancel culture and believe in absolute free speech! I would also like to ban, do away with or silence Disney, NPR, Bud Light, the FBI and CIA, this big pile of books over here, M&Ms, Mr. Potatohead, college professors, any Democratic lawmaker I don’t want to hear speak, “wokeness,” any mention of diversity, drag shows, people who defend drag shows, people who defend people who defend drag shows, any mention whatsoever of the existence of LGBTQ people, this other big pile of books over here, the entire Department of Education, PBS and Oreos.”
