Here's the thing. It should not be a big deal for me to ask a question about whether we have a process or history with banning edgelord bullshit instances from federating in the same way it should be easy to answer a question like "hey do you allow women to be voting members in the co-op?"

Richard Spencer doesn't go out as much anymore. and its not bc he got debated away, it's bc someone punched him in the fucking jaw. and marginalized folx are safer for it
like yeah, it would be cool to debate them away, but it doesn't fucking work. trust me, tried for years, as did the folx around me. sometimes, whether it's Richard Spencer at a rally, Jeremy Hambly at a con, or a dude surf howling at your college, you gotta punch 'em to keep folx safe

(the fact that we have to draw distinctions between "everyday" and "excessive SWATy policing" is... terrifying. Fuck cops)

"Paramilitary units usually specialize in 'no-knock' or 'dynamic' entries, meaning they avoid announcing their presence until they've knocked down the door and are charging into the house. The LAPD, in its characteristic style, gave its SWAT team an armored car with a battering ram attached; rather than breaking down the door, the cops drive the vehicle straight through the wall."
Today they were filming something at the community centre in my neighbourhood. They turned it into a police station. The film crew was there all day; as I was biking home from work late tonight, they were packing up.
Normally at that time of night, the skunks come out and forage in the park next to the centre, but they must have been frightened of the film crew.
I saw a couple of the skunks across the street, snuffling in the bushes. "Hey, skunks," I said.
