Morality Police in the U.S.?

As the right wing drifts ever farther into madness, some form of morality police will no doubt arise in the U.S., most likely in Texas first. They will probably call themselves the “Purity Posse” or something similar. The racial connotation and explicit authorization are carefully chosen. You have already seen the first stages with laws encouraging snitching and allowing third parties to sue suspected abortion lawbreakers.

This more organized form of moral vigilantism will then spread to other states. Meanwhile, demagogues looking to promote themselves on the national political stage will start submitting competing – and ever more draconian – federal legislation to force conformity.

You have been warned.

Tragic death? Maybe. Well-earned? Yes.

A member of the Texas Taliban got sick and died. No doubt many, if not most, of the circle of people around him will assume this is God’s Will™. So be it. Thank you God for eliminating a voice of lethal misinformation in a way that provides an abject lesson to the unfortunate fools that were listening to him.

Amen.

More horrible people in Texas

Here is the headline to start you off (article is linked):

Texas Lawmakers Are Considering The Death Penalty For Women Who Get Abortions

House Bill 896 aims to criminalize all abortions and defines the procedure as homicide, which is punishable by death in Texas.
Obviously, these people have no respect for the separation of church and state.  But beyond that, this is just another example of the desire by too many Texans to turn Texas into a theocracy.  The Texas Taliban should move to Afghanistan.
If you think Trumpism is bad, wait until you live in a theocracy.
