Cheers and Jeers: Tuesday

Energize An Ally Tuesday

Let's see: Fires. Floods. Earthquakes. A global pandemic. Lunatics seizing power around the world. Soaring temperatures and shrinking icecaps. Wait…back up.

About those lunatics seizing power. It's not just the Taliban in Afghanistan or the nutballs in Brazil and eastern Europe. It's also right here in the US of A, where the Republican party is actively plotting to seize control of the levers of power forever by passing voting laws that make it both harder for Democrats to cast their vote during elections and have their votes actually counted after them.


As the Senate does that day-to-day dithering it does so well (enjoying your vacation, Joe and Kyrsten?), it's up to the grassroots and the netroots to keep up the fight. That's why Daily Kos is promoting and supporting over a dozen grassroots organizations that are working to block restrictive voting bills in their states and educate voters about their rights despite the laws Republicans are putting on the books. So three cheers for…

Pennsylvania Stands Up…Down Home North Carolina…Action St. Louis Power Project…West Virginia Citizen Action Group…Arizona Coalition for Change / Our Voice Our Vote Arizona…Florida Rights Restoration Coalition…

Living United Change for Arizona (LUCHA)…PODER / PODER in Action…Georgia Stand Up…Detroit Action…One Arizona…We the People…PLAN Action…Florida Rising…CASA in Action…Mijente…Seeding Sovereignty…Pro Georgia State Table…and the Coalition for the Peoples' Agenda

To support any or all of these front-line groups, click here to access the ActBlue donation page. If you'd like to give to specific ones, find the box on the right-hand side marked "Split Your Donation." I thank you. These hard-working advocates thank you. Daily Kos thanks you. And America thanks you. But Republicans don’t thank you. because they’re—[checks notes]—lunatics.

And now, our feature presentation...


Cheers and Jeers for Tuesday, August 17, 2021
