I continue to be horrified by Trump. He really is the fascist he has claimed to be. This guy needs to go down. Fast and by any means necessary. He is a threat to the free world.

And I think it was wrong to try and "understand" or "educate" the people who voted for him and who vote for his ilk in Europe. Yeah, sure, they are plain stupid. But they still know they are voting for nazism and they simply do not care. They want to trample down others to better themselves. This is not the usual "what is the best way for everybody" argument political parties have been having in the last 50 years. This is "we'll take yours over your cold dead body" and people who vote for this shit need to be held accountable for it. Whatever they promise themselves from it (and however realistic or unrealistic that is) they do not mind sacrificing freedom and lives for it.

I'm also very anxious about the French election. This Hamon person, does he have a chance to go into the run off? If so, does he have a chance to beat LePen? Will Fillon's scandal drag him down?

Since the regime is now trying to let as little information as possible slip out side the country I think it's more important than ever that we collect what we have and dont let the public focus shift away from the demonstrations. The more people are watching the better.<br />So I thought I'd spread some useful links:<br /><br />Here is <lj user="arian1"/>&nbsp;'s LJ that has some great coverage of the events<br /><br /><a href="http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/">Here is the daily dish again.</a><br /><br /><a href="http://iran.whyweprotest.net/">and a forum about what's going down there and also how you can help with proxies, etc. </a><br /><br /><a href="http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2009/06/irans_disputed_election.html">Here you can find some very impressive pictures</a><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/search/label/iran"><br /></a><a href="http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/search/label/iran">A site that crunches the numbers in case you have to explain to anyone, why this election is considered rigged.</a></div><div><br />For some offline education on Iran I recommend:<br />&nbsp;<br />My Iran by Shirin Ebadi (about the 1979 revolution and current situation)<br />We are Iran by Nasreen Alavi (about the iranian bloggers)<br />Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (brilliant comicbook and film)<br /><br />If you have some more other links that you want spread, please post them here.</div>

ok, ok, i've seen so many of those and they are so terribly cute, that I had to get my own...

Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!

Just so I'm not only spamming you with the eggs, there are elections over here on Sunday. Since I'm not in Austria at the moment, I already sent my vote home. I voted green, again, somehow it seems to be the only party that makes some sense to me.
Sad thing is that the neofascist parties (FPÖ and BZÖ) are probably going to get a lot of votes this time. I really hope they don't make it into the new government, but I doubt we're that lucky.
