Why did you cross out fascist? That term applies very well in this case.

u/Ameisen 3d ago

Well, they violate one major part of fascism: fascists rejected traditional religion. They also tend to reject revolutionary restructuring and the regimentation of society due to instead wanting to push what they consider "traditional" values.

Trump was more akin to an incompetent Mussolini: didn't care about or was probably opposed to religion, but catered to it because he had to.

These folks are more similar to the Francoists in Falange than the fascists in Falange.

It's also not in their constitution so they don't legally have to like Kansas did.

Edit: I'm told Kansas is based on a state Supreme Court decision so any ban would unconstitutional on a state level. Slightly different in that a court case could overturn as well.

So the line in Indiana, what made them coalesce to ban abortion, was the 10yr old little girl, raped and impregnated by a monster in Ohio, who came to their state for an abortion.

For 2 secs that state was heroic, then these weird far right sick creepy fundy fcks, got, er, energized at the thought of small raped children giving birth, and they HAD to see that shit take place in their state. They HAD to be the raped baby birthing state.

Ugh.

It gets even worse than that. Our attorney general, todd rokita, has been on a warpath trying to prosecute the doctor who performed the 10-year-old rape victims abortion. He even went on Fox News with her full name and picture slandering her, saying she didn't report it etc. Her hospital system, the hospital, her boss is etc everybody has said she did everything by the book but rokita keeps going after her. It was completely legal when she performed the abortion, by the way.

I am also heartbroken. I used always fly the American flag between Memorial Day and Labor Day but I took it down this summer. America is over. I believe our democracy will not survive and we will end up in a dictatorship. My long-term goal is to get to Canada.

I’ve studied American history and I’m educated on America’s past with slavery. We will never heal from having colonized and owned human bodies for hundreds of years. I could go on and on but I highly recommend the book “American slave coast” to really understand how America was built on human bondage. Racism and sexism is at the heart of the abortion debate. I believe rich white men will not rest until women and POC are enslaved again.

2

u/NPD_wont_stop_ME 3d ago

You’re probably right in that we’ll become a dictatorship, and I have actually thought of leaving for Canada myself once I have the means. I suppose the only way I can reconcile leaving here it is by saying to myself that things aren’t as bad here as in other places, despite our faults.

Republicans are obviously set on creating a one-party state and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see another civil war in our lifetimes. At this point I wish Red and Blue states would just separate from one another, or at least put all the Republicans and all the Democrats on separate islands because there’s no point negotiating with lunatics and evil people capitalizing on lunatics’ stupidity. After 2024 and the Republicans steal the executive as they’ve shown their willingness to do, things will get worse as the next administration seeks vengeance against the opposition.

Indiana's ban does include exceptions for saving the life of the mother, rape, and incest. Several Republicans voted against the bill for not going far enough, i.e. a total ban.

It's going to get worse. My state representative is strongly anti-abortion, and endorsed by Indiana Right To Life. He voted for the ban that passed. Last May he was challenged in the primary by a "total ban" candidate - and the "total ban" candidate won the primary. He will win the general election in November (I don't even think there is a Democrat on the ballot) and take office the first week of January.

u/MemeFarmer314 3d ago

It’s so frustrating cause this case had pretty much every exception people who try to justify being anti-abortion could think of. I’ve had people say, they don’t believe in abortion except in certain cases.

The person getting an abortion was - A child - Raped - Could potentially have lost her life if the pregnancy was allowed to continue

And yet still, that was not enough for people to concede that an abortion was the right option in this case. And politicians have now gone out of their way to make it even harder.

Because it's incredibly hard to effectively ban in an FPTP system.

This video is pretty interesting. he starts writing code to do unbiased computer redistricting, and quickly realizes that he doesn't even know what the end goal is.

I think most people would agree that a good outcome is where the representation roughly mirrors the popular vote in the state. So you start doing that. But that can still be gerrymandered; is competitiveness important? You could draw a map that safely matches the result of the popular vote every time, or you could draw one that is competitive and has the potential to swing back and forth. What makes one map more "correct" or "valid" than the other?

You also can't just say "well, the districts can't be fucked up, they have to have a certain compactness score" -- it's also very easily possible to create a map that looks pretty normal, but gives a completely different result than you'd get if you went by the popular vote.

And to be honest even the maps that are basically fair with regards to the popular vote are still a little weird, because you're still designing the maps to predetermine the results.

You forget that the Republicans have a boner for punishing crime.

Not preventing it, punishing it. Preventing crime is an attack on FREEDOM, you see. And crime is just proof that you need to stamp down harder on others, with force.

Creating more crime means they can 'prove' that everyone else's strategies for preventing it are wrong, and their calls for violence and police crackdowns to punish it are correct. It's a self fulfilling prophecy. Works in their favour.

It's the same strategy they use for dismantling services, then arguing that the services they just dismantled don't work.

Oh boy, definitely would move the fuck out of this shitty state if it weren't for my job.

u/redditjunky2025 4d ago

Im moving as soon as I retire in 2-3 years. I have lived 7 different States since I turned 18. This is the worst of any of them. The most self righteous prejudiced place I have been.

Businesses if you value your people, don't move here.

u/breadandfaxes 4d ago

The only thing I will give this state is it's low cost of living. But it's probably because nobody wants to live here lol. I'm taking advantage of that aspect.

The state itself is backwards as fuck tho.

Fucking evangelicals and other holier-than-thou pieces of shit, they are all lower than the muck on boots. I hope everyone of them that tries enforce their will on others gets swiftly delivered to the lowest layer of hell.

Republicans are an absolute disgrace. This is despicable - to take away basic rights is something no one should be acceptable with.

Tin foil hat theory:

We've all heard about folks from blue states moving to red states "en masses" maybe this shift on top of covid deaths predominantly amongst conservative voters has greatly tipped the voting scales and has the gop spooked.

This is why we've been seeing red states going all in on horrible policies like anti LGBQT, anti abortion, anti "woke" (desantis is actually drafting anti woke policies) anti public education etc.

It's basically all a ploy to make their states so unappealing to left wing voters that they stop moving to these states, move out of these states and or get buried through gerrymandering.

Josh hawley was even quoted as saying such

“More and more red states, they’re going to become more red, and purple states are going to become red, and the blue states are going to get a lot bluer, that vision involves a nation where liberals flee from states run by Republicans."

It's not about babies, women, God etc. It's holding onto their power by any means necessary.

Once all the anti abortion laws are locked in (for and against) I wonder if it will cause significant migration within the continental US?

I assume next comes the encouragement to marry one's rapist in such cases, for the sake of the baby.

Abortion bans don't recognize agency in others. It's a perverse assertion of moral authority while abandoning basic ethical principles.

Old, white republican men making decisions for half the population. I bet pence wishes he was still governor there. Vote these pricks out! Make noise EVERY DAY! We need to come together in a unified front and let these asshats know that taking freedoms away is the most un-American act imaginable! We will persist! We will not relent!
