Obviously it’s great that cori bush got people to show up. But she’s only there for a photo op. She wouldn’t even answer a question from Max Blumenthal bout force the vote. Cori waited til it was too late to do anything. She knows Congress isn’t coming back. Fraud Squad. She makes 174k a year and has healthcare. She doesn’t care

He isn't losing support in the Republican Party overall. It went from 40%-70% this week of people who the election was rigged.. This isn't over by a longshot. Trump still plans on being President till 2024.

Think people. Everything was generally good at the Wendy's until the 4th (when the KKK said that they were going to kill Blacks), now some Black 8 yr old girl gets shot?!? Did any governor of Georgia declare a state of emergency during the Atlanta child murders? Also, you had an armed group of Blacks marched on Stone Mountain, the birthplace of the KKK.

1:28:55 is a great point to explain the position of privilege that POC are not given equal footing from the onset and that it does also extend beyond class.

Homophobia comes from the subconscious understanding that we are human capital and that the worst offense we could commit is denying future masters their next exploited generations for harvest.
