Roundabackcircled The last place I ever expected to see a political thread was on a phishnet review page, and I hate seeing it cause I thought the Phish community would be basically in agreement ideologically. However, against my better judgment I have to respond.

Jeff Sessions and the DOJ asked congress back in June to rescind the amendment protecting medical marijuana patients from federal prosecution. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/06/13/jeff-sessions-personally-asked-congress-to-let-him-prosecute-medical-marijuana-providers/?utm_term=.c36c67462393

The evangelical right voted for Trump, excusing his questionable Christian values, in hopes of packing the supreme court with conservative judges with the explicit goal of overturning Roe v Wade. And then you've got your various "bathroom bills" and bans on transgender people in the military.

So please don't pretend "liberal culture" isn't under attack. I'm sorry you feel freedom of speech is under attack by some Antifa assholes, but I'm far more concerned about the right's denigration of the free press, and on its attempt to remake America in its image.

Of course, everybody here is totally free to their own opinion. I hope as a Phish community we can rally around freedom of expression for all. It's what the music has always been about, and the best part of going to shows. Fascists can get buffalo billed.
