The fact that this is not "off topic" for the US politics thread is alarming.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/06/20/texas-gop-platform-secession-theocracy/

 
Quote
[...] Over the weekend, while many Americans were celebrating the 167th anniversary of Juneteenth (when Union Gen. Gordon Granger, in Galveston, Tex., delivered the order abolishing slavery) the Texas Republican Party voted on a platform declaring that federal laws it dislikes “should be ignored, opposed, refused, and nullified.”

The proposed platform (it’s expected to be approved when votes are tallied) adds: “Texas retains the right to secede from the United States, and the Texas Legislature should be called upon to pass a referendum consistent thereto.” It wants the secession referendum “in the 2023 general election for the people of Texas to determine whether or not the State of Texas should reassert its status as an independent nation.
[...]
”In democracy’s place, the Republican Party, which enjoys one-party rule in Texas, is effectively proposing a church state. If you liked Crusader states and Muslim caliphates, you’ll love the Confederate Theocracy of Texas.

The Texas GOP platform gives us a good idea what such a paradise for Christian nationalists would look like. Texas would officially declare that “homosexuality is an abnormal lifestyle choice.” It would redefine marriage as a “covenant only between one biological man and one biological woman,” and it would “nullify” any court rulings to the contrary. (The gay Log Cabin Republicans were banned from setting up a booth at the convention.) It would fill schools with “prayer, the Bible, and the Ten Commandments” but ban “the teaching of sex education.” It would abolish all abortions and require students to “learn about the Humanity of the Preborn Child.”

The Texas Theocracy, which maintains that President Biden “was not legitimately elected,” would keep only traces of democracy. It wants the Voting Rights Act of 1965 “repealed,” and it would rewrite the state constitution to empower minority rule by small, rural (and White) counties. It would rescind voters’ right to elect senators and the Constitution’s guarantee of birthright citizenship.

The Texas Theocracy would probably be broke; it wants to abolish the federal income tax, “Axe the Property Tax” and do away with the estate tax and various business taxes. Yet it is planning a hawkish foreign policy! The platform argues that Texas is currently “under an active invasion” and should take “any and all appropriate measures the sovereign state defines as necessary to defend” itself. It imagines attacks by a “One World Government, or The Great Reset” — an internet-born conspiracy belief — and proposes “withdrawal from the current United Nations.” The Theocracy would put the “wild” back in the West, abolishing the minimum wage, environmental and banking regulations, and “red-flag” laws or waiting periods to prevent dangerous people from buying guns.

Above all, the Confederate Theocracy of Texas would be defined by thought police. It would penalize “woke corporations” and businesses that disagree with the theocracy over abortion, race, trans rights and the “inalienable right to refuse vaccination.”

Government programs would be stripped of “education involving race.” Evolution and climate change “shall be taught as challengeable scientific theories subject to change.” There would be a “complete repeal of the hate crime laws.” The Texas Revolution “shall not be ‘reimagined’” in a way the theocracy finds “disrespectful.” Confederate monuments “shall be protected,” “plaques honoring the Confederate widows” restored, and lessons on “the tyrannical history of socialism” required.

In their platform, the Texas Republicans invoked “God” or the “Creator” 18 times and “sovereignty” or sovereign power 24 times. And the word “democracy”? Only once — in reference to China.

What's funny is that there's a theory that's not inherently crazy (except in the sense that's common to all amusing legal theories that will never be tested) that of all the states Texas is the only one that can make a legal claim to being able to secede because it was an independent state annexed by treaty which had specific provisions in it, the theory being that Texas could simply abrogate the treaty. No other state, except possibly Hawai'i, ever had terms like these. I personally think the readmission after the Civil War would supersede this original claim, in other words, Texas could have left then but couldn't come back and leave again. Now all that said, the platform doesn't even try for this theory instead simply declaring it the right for Texas to secede but never outlines why cities and counties can't then secede from Texas. They'd have to rewrite the Texas Constitution first. (Which would be difficult if their platform was passed since it requires three-fourths of counties to endorse any Constitutional change.)

The Pornography Crisis is so out of control that they listed it twice:
Quote
149. Pornography Crisis: The State of Texas shall recognize that pornography is a public health hazard.

150. Ban on Exposing Minors to Pornography Online: We call upon our elected leaders to compel any websites displaying pornographic content in Texas to implement age verification for preventing minors from accessing the content, and to block or punish any such websites that continue to make such material available to minors.

151. Pornography Crisis: The State of Texas shall recognize that pornography and pedophilia are public health hazards.

https://www.npr.org/2022/06/21/1106402470/trump-documentary-unreleased-footage-jan-6-committee

Quote
Holder had access to Trump, as well as his family members and associates, while directing a documentary series surrounding the final six weeks of the former president's reelection campaign in 2020. He said the footage he turned over includes interviews with Trump and his family leading up to the election, as well as never-before-seen footage of the Capitol riot.

This is wild.

Quote
The magazine reported that several former officials on Trump's reelection campaign have claimed they did not know that the documentary about his reelection campaign was being filmed in the first place, and heard about it for the first time after seeing the Politico report about the subpoena.

"What the f*** is this?" a former top Trump 2020 official messaged the publication after seeing the news.

Fucking digusting old fucks.

Feel for all the women out there. Also this effects men too since it costs the men their money to raise kids they can't afford. In a just world this would be the point when people stop being apathetic and real change starts to happen in the USA.

But I doubt it. People are lazy and will attend a few protests and nothing will happen and then the SC will get rid of gay marriage and other rights one by one. Feels pretty likely the GOP takes over all the branches soon with how fucked the world is right now and cements their eternal rule for the short amount of USA left by speedruning global warming and the erasure of humanity from the planet. Death cult will be death culting.


Will continue to look into Canadian exodus once we reach a more stable stage of the pandemic.
