Something you guys need to understand is that the “Alt-Right” doesn’t really exist. The vast majority white identitarians would more appropriately be called Alt-Left because they are left-of-center authoritarians who are SOCIALLY conservative.
The mainstream right these days isn’t particularly socially conservative except when it comes to abortion. (And the same holds true of the mainstream left being “liberal”, only to an exponentially greater degree.)
The best thing Turning Point USA could do right now (along with the mainstream right in general) is stop identifying as conservative and TAKE BACK the mantle of liberalism.
And for the record, the Alt-Lefters who voted for Trump only did so because they believed the garbage the MSM was spewing about the bad orange man. And right now their strategy is to divide his base and get one of these insane Democrats elected because they believe economic collapse to be the most expedient way to bring about their white ethnostate.
Which means their strategy is essentially the same as Bernie’s, only instead of Democratic Socialism, they’d be saving us all with their Americanized version of National Socialism.
Private response to a Danielle Stella tweet:
There needs to be a congressional investigation into the tactics being used to prosecute — or rather PERSECUTE — specialists who prescribe pain medications. The DOJ is having doctors testify in court who have ZERO experience treating the conditions for which these drugs are being prescribed, with many of them being hired to work as full-time consultants STRAIGHT OUT OF MED SCHOOL.
I have been fortunate that my neurologist is still willing to treat my pain, as his practice has otherwise ceased prescribing opioid medications. Yet he cut my dosage IN HALF after two of his colleagues were sentenced to federal prison DESPITE ADHERING TO CDC GUIDELINES.
(He told me he had three daughters, two in college, and that he couldn’t afford to go to prison.)
The DOJ simply had their pets testify that certain patients COULD have been treated with lower doses than were prescribed, and in at least one case they claimed not enough alternative forms of pain management had been explored before resorting to opioids.
The government is FLAGRANTLY interfering in our medical care in response to a media-manufactured crisis that politicians from BOTH sides of the aisle have eagerly exploited for the PR points.
Because who wouldn’t want to help addicts who so obviously became addicted ThRoUgH nO fAuLt Of ThEiR oWn?
The reality is that in almost every case of overdose, at least one other substance was involved, or the user had otherwise failed to take as directed — if they were even using these meds under a doctor’s’ supervision. And many of them weren’t.
it’s scary enough to face the prospect of socialized medicine, and what would happen to me if my cancer should return. I underwent a series of unconventional surgeries that would certainly NOT have been covered under any government plan.
But I at least had opioids to manage my pain — which was so intense that they had to dose me even as I slept. The recovery was brutal. Withdrawal from the intravenous dilaudid to get back on to tramadal truly sucked — every time.
The aftermath hasn’t been easy. Since my pain medication was cut in half, I went from being able to perform activities that most people take for granted — shopping, driving, keeping up with friends — to being housebound.
But what truly terrifies me is the prospect of the cancer returning, the government dictating my course of treatment and the extent to which I am deemed worthy of pain management.
I can’t be alone in wanting a Constitutional amendment restricting the sale of jelly beans to persons under the age of twenty-one.
This would allow for the creation of a new regulatory agency — one that would work closely with local law enforcement once the individual states have passed the necessary possession laws.
There’d be, like, grocery-store cops. And no more late-night candy binges.
Who’s my congresswomanmanperson again?
I left a comment which anyone with an IQ above 70 would have immediately been able to recognize as satire. This was before I realized the full extent of your dedication to equitable hiring.
Please do not run program zuck.exe against me — I assure you, I am not a Republican, and I promise to have better thinks in the future. #OrangeManBad
