Robocalls in Detroit are telling people that, if they vote by mail in the presidential election, they’ll be giving their information to “the man,” who will use the that information to track them, arrest them, and put them on a list for “mandatory vaccines”

Remember Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman, the two far right, pro-Trump “ratfuckers” who tried to convince the people of America that former FBI director Robert Mueller was a rapist and that Elizabeth Warren liked rough sex with male prostitutes? Well they seem to be at it again. This time, it looks as though they’re behind a robocall campaign here in Detroit intended to discourage people from voting by mail, and Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has opened an investigation. Here’s an excerpt from the Daily Beast.

…The voice on the call then lies to listeners that mail-in ballot information will be used by police to track fugitives, by credit card companies to find debtors, and by the Centers for Disease Control to “track people for mandatory vaccines.”

“Don’t be BS’ed into giving your private information to the man,” the call continues. “Stay safe and beware of vote-by-mail”…

And here’s the actual audio.

This is the kind of shit we’re up against, folks. And it’s only going to get worse between now and Election Day. We have to be ready to fight like we’ve never fought before. This may be our last chance.

It’s also worth noting that Donald Trump accepted the Republican nomination this evening. Not surprisingly, he lied throughout his acceptance speech, which was delivered — likely in violation of the Hatch Act — on the White House lawn. Here are just a few examples of the untruths that were told to the American people during the course of that speech.

    These shambolic Christo fascist traitors just love their ratfuckers. Get those votes in early. And then know who the redneck gun nuts near you are and have a plan to relieve them of their cache should civil war seem imminent.

    How are Wohl and Burkman not in jail for accusing Robert Mueller of “brutal rape” during the investigation into Russian election interference?

    Anon, because they are fascist operatives for the fascist party, which is in charge of DOJ.

    I’m seriously considering driving up to Michigan on November 3rd to drive voters to the polls. I won’t make a difference here in IN, but maybe I can help make a difference in Michigan. Just need to figure out where to start and who to contact.

    Walter Shaub, the former director of the Office of Government Ethics, commenting on the election event at the White House:

    “This abomination may be the most visible misuse of official position for private gain in America’s history. It is an abuse of the power entrusted to this man, the breach of a sacred trust. It is the civic equivalent of a mortal sin—maybe a religious one too. And it is a harbinger.”

    Well, Wobblie, it hasn’t worked yet in that case. He’s still due to be evicted next week. But ideally those supporting him will help him get resettled. I’m doing the same for a friend right now. Lots of paper work and waiting and moving things around and adjusting care provisions. It’s a lot more work than protesting, although that can’t hurt in most situations.

    If the tenants union and DSA want to be effective, they will need to be there every day. Detroit Will Breathe is out there every day. Washtenaw County citizens tend to see protest as social events. They are a low risk/low reward, self-congratulatory parade…. and about as deeply engaged as a parade.

    He is not on the street and mutual aid is a part of solidarity.

    There is an event described in Annie Dillard’s 1992 novel “The Living” that seems worth sharing. A settler is trying to clear his land, but is dealing with 250 year old + trees. Rather than cut them down, he drills holes in them at the base, drops embers into the holes, and waits. After a number of days of burning from the inside out with not much tell tale than a bit of smoke, the trees collapse.

    The specifics of events change, but the underlying mindsets driving events seems to stay the same.
