Let’s not forget the people of Afghanistan, but let’s notf IGNORE the fact that the GOP acts very much like an American Taliban, talks like it, and has a vision for a future America that resembles very much the Taliban ideology.

First, making abortion illegal. By spring, we could be looking at Roe v. Wade in our rear view mirrors:

Science? The right wing has no use for science. They use their own personal ideology to run the show.

Destroying trust in the media, science, and government has left America vulnerable to disaster

The distrust of science, and political opportunism, has led to the explosion of this pandemic:

Tearing down the notion of “separation of church and state” has long been a Republican goal. This is not new.

It is not just women’s rights under attack by the right-wing.

Legislative Tracker: Anti-Transgender Legislation

It’s so much easier to focus on the failures of government in other natures than to admit that we have the very same problems here. But this fact needs to be faced.

The GOP is more like the Taliban than a legitimate political party.
