The Lawless Court of Alito, Thomas, Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, Barret, and John Roberts just launched Civil War 2.0

You already know what happened; 6 Republicans choose Violence and decided that Women are second-class citizens at best.  Roe v. Wade (1973) and Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992) were abolished by the six lying Reactionaries on the Supreme Court.

The Sinister Six Injustices are an out-of-control Star Chamber.  Flush with the power of a 6-3 advantage (As should be noted the Constitution makes no reference to 9 Judges and indeed the Original Text makes no reference to a set number of Judges when it refers to the One Supreme Court of the land) this lawless bunch of Reactionary fascists will strike down anything which impedes their push to destroy the United States of America and replace it with a Theocratic White Power Fascist Nation-State.

Protests have begun and will continue throughout the summer months, but conservatives of course expect them to peter out as Americans move on with their daily routines but, before then Republican states gave the go ahead to rightwing domestic terrorists to run down the protestors and in Cedar Rapids, Iowa a white conservative driving his F-150 RAPTOR took the opportunity to run over two women.

Already, somewhere a Kyle Rittenhouse clone is oiling up his manhood and preparing to bag a couple of Sluts since it's Open Season on women in America.

Make no mistake this Lawless Unjust Court struck down Roe and Casey with an eye to killing women, but Americans have succumbed to the tactics of stochastic terrorism;  certainly some women will die they tell themselves but the likelihood that it is someone I know is exceedingly small so therefore I don't care.

But, for Sammy di Puzzi Alito, Amy Coathanger Bear-it, Neil Gosuck, Boofer O'Kavanugh, Ginni Thomas, and John Radical Roberts deaths and misery because of this 6-3 decision and the 6-3 decision striking down a 1913 Gun Control Law in New York area feature, not a bug.  Republicans look forward to people dying because of their governance, Republicans have nothing to offer the American people but Death & Taxes.

It's hard not to be discouraged and defeatist, it's hard not too lash out and blame the BernieBros and Susan Sarandon and curse the rotten luck of RBG dying when she did and the machinations of Mitch McConnell but, we can't allow ourselves to be defeated even before we fight back, that's how fascists win most of the time by applying power to you and making you give up.

Certainly, worry about what future unjust decisions the Sinister Six will deliver as Thomas wrote an extra assholish addendum telling conservatives to bring challenges to birth control and same sex marriage.  But, don't get wrapped up in nightmare scenarios of State Police in Iowa or Missouri, Oklahoma or Texas waiting to arrest women at the border for crossing into an abortion state.

Voting is not enough, it's necessary and needed to overcome the built-in advantage conservatives have, besides the voting suppression and gerrymandering but, make plans for how you can help.  Be a helper because Republicans have chosen Violence.  Of all kinds.  

Be prepared...
