The Texas wave of laws is even worse than people realize

We're all focusing on the abortion ban and the voter restriction law that Texas passed, but Texas is passing 666 laws (no I'm not joking with that number.)

One of the things they're doing is expanding their ban on CRT teaching at school. Now you're not even allowed to teach that white supremacy and Nazism are bad things. You can't teach about Martin Luther King Jr., etc.

Unsatisfied with just one bill scaring teachers from talking about race in schools, Republican legislators in the special session are advancing yet another supposed critical race theory bill that would remove required civil rights teachings from the curriculum, including writings from Martin Luther King, Jr. and lessons about slavery, white supremacy and the Ku Klux Klan being “morally wrong.”


Texas has legitimately gone full authoritarian fascist. It's what they're planning on doing nationwide. I don't even know how we stop it.

a match made in hell. Nazis came to the south in the 1920s to study the legal system of marginalizing blacks. The south was too extreme for “moderate” Nazis, I shit you not, but the radical nazis loved it. Hitler referred to the American south in Mein Kampf..
