A call to arms: Defending America's soul in an age of extremism

An article from the Hill (and probably ran elsewhere too):

A call to arms: Defending America’s soul in an age of extremism - The Hill

In a speech before last fall’s midterm elections, President Biden warned we are engaged in a battle for the nation’s soul. “As I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault,” he said. “We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise.”

So, let’s not pretend otherwise. We should start by not calling this a battle. There are white militias that would like nothing better than civil war. They’ve been arming themselves and training for a long time.

Instead, we should defend America’s fundamental principles of freedom, equality, morality, dignity and loyalty to the same Constitution. These are the “soul of the nation.”

The various groups engaged in the assault include white supremacists, white separatists, white nationalists, neo-Nazis, Christian nationalists, the Ku Klux Klan and an assortment of self-identified patriot organizations on the far-right wing of politics.

Anti-abortion activists take direct aim at contraception: report - MSN

In a report for "Reveal," broadcast by many National Public Radio (NPR) affiliates, host Al Letson and his colleagues devoted an entire hour to efforts by anti-abortion activists — including the group Students For Life — to outlaw contraception as well.

"For many in the anti-abortion movement," Letson reports, "overturning Roe v. Wade isn't enough. They want to restrict access even in states where abortion remains legal.…. But the attacks go beyond abortion. Groups like Students For Life have been targeting other forms of reproductive healthcare, including something millions of people rely on every day: hormonal birth control."

Republicans are resorting to 'guerrilla war' against democracy to cling to power: columnist

Interesting read, and incidentally, the ABSOLUTE TRUTH. They are at war with US. Best we recognize that fact, and respond accordingly.

Republicans are resorting to 'guerrilla war' against democracy to cling to power: columnist

Republicans are "waging an asymmetrical guerilla war against democracy, blowing things up," in a desperate attempt to stop Democrats' "conventional war at the ballot box," warned author and Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Will Bunch in an article published on Monday.

Bunch wrote,

"the conservative movement doesn’t really believe in the liberties laid out in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It believes in the divine right of its preordained hierarchies — white supremacy, patriarchy, homophobia, xenophobia, etc. — and will stop at nothing to maintain them. The story of America has been the fight for democracy against slavery, Jim Crow, pervasive sexism, mass incarceration, and more. Today, the forces of repression are running out of room, so they would rather win by fascism than lose elections."
