There are already Nazis here in Lincoln. They've been spotted, tiki torches and all, at the capitol building.

Glad I got my weapons back from my brother.

Remember, when calling 911 to report a dangerous situation (as is any with a Nazi), describe the other person, including what they're wearing. Then describe yourself, including what you're wearing, because presumably, you'd like the cops to not shoot at you if there's an altercation, tell them that you feel afraid for your life. Don't tell them anything else regarding why you may take any actions you take, if you get physically violent with the Nazi. Just say you feel afraid for your life. Say that if necessary, yes, you want to be taken to the hospital afterwards, but no, you will not be making a statement until you've sought legal counsel. If an officer asks why after the mess is over, tell them you're too emotionally unstable from fear and adrenaline crash to be able to be reliable, and you'd like to seek legal counsel.

Period, full stop, run program.

After that, it's up to you. Each person must decide how much they are capable of giving in this fight. We should all be violently opposed to Nazis, and quite frankly, if you can do it and not get swarmed, I'd say go for it. But be careful, be aware of your situation and your surroundings, and be mindful of your physical capabilities. If you have a bad hand, try not to punch with that one, for example. Fight back. #resist. But don't be stupid.

That's your PSA for the day.

It's storming. It's five in the morning. I haven't been to bed yet. I've been screaming and yelling on Facebook against people who still insist on non-violence against actual literal Nazis who are actually literally killing us, and getting told to be nice all night. I am almost done with my anti-depressant. Today's the first day I'm not going to therapy on a Monday for good. I just took my night meds, including a bit more hydroxyzine than I'm prescribed (shh) i the vague hopes that it'll knock me out and let me sleep so I don't have to exist for just a few hours.

Just a few hours. Please. That's all I ask.

I'm done. Just a few hours.

You know that saying about how courage doesn't always roar, that sometimes it's the quite voice at the end of the day that says 'I will try again tomorrow'? Yeah, running out of that. I don't want to keep trying. I'm screaming into a void and nobody fucking cares.

Gonna try to sleep now. Maybe I'll work on writing in the ... well probably afternoon, at this point.

America is not beautiful.

We may have the spacious skies, and the amber waves of grain. We have the purple mountains and the fruited plains. And we stretch the width of our continent, from sea to shining sea, something many countries don't.

But we are not beautiful.

I used to believe we were. I don't anymore. America is ugly. If there was ever a thing such as sin, the word encompasses America. She is evil, with the blood of millions of innocents on her hands, and all she does is wave around her smoking gun in arrogance as she lines up her sights on the next innocent life she wants to take.

Tonight, I heard about a seventeen year old girl in Virginia who was murdered. A Muslim girl kidnapped from in front of a mosque.

Castile's murderer walked.

Cosby avoided conviction due to a mistrial.

Kendra Marie Adams was murdered and left in a building still under construction.

Pulse was only a year ago.






Over and over, the creed of intolerance and hate flow, flow from the right, flow over those of us who just want to survive, over the small handful of the communities with the social standing to fight back for us. Gun laws are loosened. Pastors preach hellfire and brimstone against those lesser than themselves. Parents torture their children with conversion 'therapy'.

This is America.

America is white.

America is male.

America is cisgendered.

America is straight.

And America is Christian.

Justice and Liberty have no place at America's table. Equality and human dignity are slaughtered and served with a glass of merlot. Decency and tolerance are scoffed and tossed out to die of exposure to the elements. America ignores their cries, ignores the lives that are extinguished like candles with them.

America is ugly.

And no god sheds its grace on it.
