The Front Page of Minnesota, United States (MN)
I want to lay this out in clear terms to my fellow Minnesotans who don’t have an interest of studying how fascism plays out in the real world.
Scott Jensen’s campaign is deliberately pushing the boundaries on the rule of law and state propaganda. He is pushing his agenda hard so that it becomes normalized here. His campaign is consistent with fascist movements all over the world.
You don’t defeat a fascist by narrowly winning by 10% of thevote. That is how these movements are fueled and empowered, not squashed.
The consequences of a Tim Walz narrow victory will be enormous. GOP campaign money will flow into our state like it hasn’t for ages. MN will become a battleground state, which it has been inching towards for years now. We will become way more exposed to foreign influence.
Take no chances, GET OUT AND VOTE.
That’s the uncomfortable social science around this election. If Scott Jensen comes close in this election, he will see that as a WIN and that his strategy was wildly successful. The GOP will raise the stakes, put more money down and try harder.
Imagine it as an informational battlefield. Jensen is pressing ahead with huge gains on the field of public opinion. He is exciting his base and showing major improvement in the polls, lending his crazy agenda legitimacy. He is manipulating the fact that liberals here have gotten too comfortable with winning. He’s consolidating his victories and setting the new line between corruption and democracy, a way narrower line than it was before.
If you don’t crush a fascist movement, they raise the stakes, their policies become normalized, and fighting the movement becomes way more costly.
Crush Jensen now, show him that MN is not to be fucked with. Not now, not 4 years from, not ever.
