    The same republicans who supported the attack on the Capitol want to take your Constitutional ability to protest away from you.

    Following a year of demonstrations against police violence, Republican lawmakers in 34 states have introduced more than 80 anti-protest bills that critics say will have a chilling effect on First Amendment rights as part of a GOP-backed effort to criminalize dissent.

    Proposals include immunity for drivers who strike protesters in public streets, blocking convicted protesters from student loan eligibility or unemployment and housing assistance, and turning protest-related misdemeanors into felony crimes.

    The International Center for Not-for-Profit Law, which is tracking the bills’ progress, told The New York Times that legislation filed for 2021 legislative sessions more than doubles the number filed last year.

    This week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed legislation into law that he called “the strongest anti-looting, anti-rioting, pro-law-enforcement piece of legislation in the country.”

    The law enhances criminal penalties for crimes committed during protests that turn violent, including raising protest-related misdemeanor offences to felonies.

    It took nearly 400 years to get this way. The idea of White supremacy came about first in the 1600’s when biology as a science was being organized. The white supremacists had it and believed it. A color caste system was formed. All behavior not notes. It is still active now that almost half of our population wants some version of it to remain.

    Racism is only one small part of what is actually an ideology of supremacy. The extreme form is what the Nazis did. To believe that one group is superior to another is what leads to all the inhumanity that takes place. The US is very much full of people who believe in supremacy. Fighting racism is only fighting one of the symptoms but not the underlying disease.

    It really is terrifying the insidiousness of the states’ destruction of democracy. which part of “divided we fall” don’t Americans understand?
