Rage at the Moment of Triumph

The American Right has won their greatest victory against civil society in fifty years, but the rank-and-file don't seem happy about it.  Their backlash against protests was predicted by the FBI, and it has materialized:

Meanwhile, the online rhetoric from right-wing misogynists has been predictably vile: At least a multi-pronged approach to fighting for abortion rights is coalescing, with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez exhorting young pro-abortion rights activists to be 'sand in the gears': Personally, I believe that a coordinated boycott of all things Red State is in order, and a general strike, followed by an extended 'buy nothing essential' period. Hit the reactionaries in the wallets, where it hurts. In the meantime, an executive order rescinding Trump's expansion of tax cuts for politically active churches should be enacted immediately. It's going to be a slog, but we didn't choose this war. We'd damn well better win it, though.
