So, we’ve come to this: neo-nazis trying to bring on civilization’s collapse and you all respond with cat photos. Sigh.

The Nazi gent thought he was gonna “destroy Baltimore completely” he said by damaging a substation or two. Not likely. Now he’s earned himself 3 hots and a cot. His lady friend as well.
I prefer to approach this base stupidity with some light humor. But really it is serious because this nut is not alone in his rabbit hole.

Trumpism, the demagoguery going along with it, its tangential relation to the truth, its whole-scale acceptance by the GOP and its normalization by sectors of the Press have played a part in our present situation.

Is it me or is the above male chauvinist, implying that the man is the brains behind the operation?

Supposedly he wasn’t all that gung ho about the plan until his girlfriend said “Let’s Go, Brandon!”

In the film The Blues Brothers, the makers got into the phenomenon of Nazism. It was dealt with in a humorous slant, designed to evoke laughter.

But that was before these types of events.

All of us are lied to each other in the sense that we all–in some way–are dependent on the infrastructure these individuals seek to harm. There is an irony in this:

Even a cabal of 1%ers is vulnerable no matter how much dirty $$$$$$ they shovel into their fascist political dens

The article mentions “The Ermentraut Move” of shorting out the transformer with mylar balloons.
What’s up with balloons with attitude now?

I guess ‘Let’s go, Brandon’ is entirely inappropriate here, but someone had to say it.

I hope we have some kind of defense in place for all the retribution power grids will experience due to this arrest. Doubling down is really all they can do, huh?
