uspol, walled gardens, surveillance capitalism 

Let's be very clear here: in no small part the blame for what happened today lies with surveillance capitalism.

It is *profitable* to put right-wing/fascist/conspiratorial content in front of more eyeballs, since it generates more "engagement". So Facebook, YouTube and others became perfect channels for this kind of crap.

Big Tech made money on this, for them today's insurrection is an "externality".

"For those who are able to: please try to scrape and save any videos and livestreams of the Capitol storming and occupation. Just like after Charlottesville in 2017, many of those who are streaming will delete their streams once they realize how incriminating the footage is."

Tonight, and for almost two years now, #Assange will sleep in Belmarsh, the "British Guantanamo", with temperatures as low as 0 degrees at night, 23+h/24 in isolation + new covid restrictions including no shower and no visit.. in a ward where 80+ prisoners got tested positive.

oh and he is there for allegedly "skipping bail" when he actually had political asylum, then detained awaiting an extradition hearing he just got discharged with.

All good for the rule of law. Thanks UK!

Not about the politics:

I used to live in DC, while homeless, and there were frequent curfews due to political unrest.

This often led to homeless people who had nothing to do with the situation getting detained and harassed. This group is probably going to be doing a lot of work for the DC homeless community.

Please consider giving them some money. Thank you

it's fucking disgusting to see the sheer contrast meer months between black lives matter facing tanks, live fire from national guard, being condemned as terrorists by fighting for their right to exist peacefully. hocky McCracker pisses his pants because he only gets diet fascist empire than full on, are allowed to storm the centre of american government and handed the keys to play in the playground while everybody stands by and wonders why they're pissing all over the walls. they want to embolden fascists and pat them on the head, none of this is about the 'legality' of this shit

do not ever forget that the cops invited them in

oh yeah my sister lives in DC, she was saying that the reason the cops aren't in riot gear is because "antifa and BLM weren't going to be there", there's literally no point for me to finish this post you know what I'm going to finish it with

Take a good look, USA. This is who we are now. We let this fester for too long and now we're finding out first-hand what this kind of shit will do to us

We've had reckonings in the past that were easy to laugh off or think "it couldn't happen here". Well, guess what? It did. We've become that which we used to tut tut on our TV Screens.

We took "peaceful transfer of power" off of our virtues list and smashed it.

We made a mockery of ourselves on the world-wide stage.

Time to fix our shit

Avery boosted

To me as a poc, this shit is depressing and terrifying because they allowed them to go INTO THE CAPITOL BUILDING unimpeded, showing just how deep this system is entrenched in white supremacy. Who's gonna protect us, apparently fuckin nobody

Avery boosted

uspol, police 

lol imagine if leftist protestors literally walked around the capital. they'd get shot with real bullets.

uspol / coup / Wilmington 

This isn't the first time white supremacists have done this. They succeeded last time: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilmingt
