Terrorism. On November 18th, Libs of TikTok targeted a theatre in Moore County, North Carolina. December 3rd, power substations were sabotaged across Southern Pines. 40,000 people are without power.
Thanks for this great summarization of what is happening in realtime. Just to pile on to your sentence, I'm going to highlight the most important point:
> **It is clear that right wing anti-LGBTQ+ groups are feeling emboldened, and we need a massive community response against these groups in order to ensure that they do not increasingly feel like they have room to enact their threats. We cannot allow tech companies to platform hate that leads to overt violence against our people.**
We absolutely need to be sending a strong message that these acts have no place in our country.
I genuinely believe prisons should be used far less in favor of alternatives like large fines and supervised release, but whoever attacked that power grid needs to be locked up for several years. Doing this sort of stuff in the dead of winter can get people killed.
