REBOOT - Read My Reports - Fight Fascism
Some of my most vital reporting of the last two years - part of my ‘Fight Fascism’ toolkit - originally published April 13, 2023
I am rebooting key reports for new members to catch up. This was originally published April 13, 2023.
One of the upsides to the authoritarian right and tankie left no longer hiding their fascist tendencies is it makes it very easy to spot the traitors to democratic values. I have written myriad articles on the techniques they use - othering, victimhood, mythic past, sexual anxiety, anti-intellectualism, propaganda - which we learned from Ruth Ben-Ghiat is never just words.
Bette Dangerous is growing so fast, I encourage new members to please scan the archives to get up to speed - an easy hack is to search for the weekly roundups. All my work is paywalled after two weeks, so please if you can afford to do so, support my work with a subscription - I am offering 25% off through the weekend. You will also receive invites to our amazing ‘Speakeasy’ zooms with vital and brilliant guests.
I promised new members that I would compile some of my key investigative reports from recent years that offer a full picture of what we are fighting. The volume of work I have been producing is staggering to even me, so I will be posting ‘Read My Reports - Fight Fascism’ as a multi-part series within the ‘Fight Fascism’ series. You will find the links to the entire series’ toolkit at the bottom of this report.
Do let’s remind our readers what fascism is - a society ruled by a dictator who controls the lives of people, who are not allowed to disagree with the strong-arm government. The dictator often comes to power to hide corruption, and the society is ruled by fear and violence. Rule of law has been subverted to benefit the dictator and allies - laws are often changed to benefit the leader.
As you can see by what is occurring in our statehouses and our Supreme Court, we are more than halfway there. So while we still have a chance and if we give “enough of a shit”, it is our duty to fight the fascist creep. Like my allies, I do not want my children and their children living in a fascist dystopia. I do not want what Russia has.
And while I am still free to type these words, onward…
Here are some of my most vital reports from the last couple of years:
