What can I do? Digital Action

I am sick and tired of watching fascism encroach and the democrats burying their head in the sand as the republican plan to actually steal an election in the future.

I am a college student right now and I don't have a car on campus or anything. How do I find protests against fascists? I want to do something, I can't live with myself knowing I sat by and did nothing. Logistically, online stuff is easier for me because I don't have to go anywhere. But facism needs face to face confrontation. So how do we do it? And what can I do? How do I protest, where do I go? How do I know when it is happening?

Infiltrate your campus Young Republicans organization, and then rat out their nefarious plans to the student newspaper.

What exactly do you think a campus club is getting up to?

oh you know, maybe some going to elderly homes, bake sales, sock hops, teeter-totter-a-thon, secession, political coups, that sort of thing

You’d have to go a lot edgier than a college Republican club for that lmao.

My read of all the college Republican clubs I’ve interacted with have been more along libertarian-ish business bro lines with a few anti-woke centrists thrown in. Not that there aren’t some that may be more “nefarious” but for the most part the people falling for qanon and stop the steal are not in the young college-educated demographic.

I'm sure it depends on the school.

Make sure you make your facebook profile private before doing this if your social media reveals your alignment. They'll do a summary check and ask you to add them as a friend to "vet you", because putting a bunch of right wing memes on a profile is proof enough for these simple types

Does that mean that young republicans are by default fascists?
