I watched the whole thing. It was unbearable. Part of the pain was the experience of watching someone pull a Karen in a courtroom. “I’m not answering that, it’s speculative” is not for a witness to say, and by this point, everyone has given up trying to correct her and let the attorney control her, which he did pretty well.

Another part was watching her lie so badly. There’s a pain to watching someone be evil, and a second pain watching someone do it badly. She’s horrendously stupid. She is stupid because she has never had to be smart. She has never had to do anything but be blonde and entitled.

There is a pain in sitting through her smugness. Throughout the testimony it was clear she thought she was winning. Because, in a horrible way, she probably was winning the war as she lost this battle.

And the last pain was watching this manifestation of white supremacy, knowing that no one who didn’t want to see would. It is so clear to me that this is a woman raised in a Georgia where you just don’t question white women like this, and because it’s not a racial topic, no one will see it that way except those who already have the eye to.

It was unbearable and I have already forgotten what the trial was about because of the constant storm of shit these fascists have unleashed on us.

Hair colour notwithstanding she has never had to be anything but entitled, bold and willing to use any means to get ahead. The fact that I live in a world where this would be emboldened, encouraged and deemed appropriate to serve in a position of power is equal measures of saddening and terrifying.

i remember the case being really limited in scope for what they could actually present as evidence. everything was basically limited to the 3 days between jan 3rd (when she was sworn in) and jan 6th (you know, the thing) because the complaint was based on:

a provision in the Constitution that forbids members of Congress who support an insurrection from serving in office.

there was so much other stuff that was inadmissable.

Right, because to them, everybody has the urges that they have towards the same sex.

They don’t realize that they’re experiencing those feelings because they’re homosexual (and that’s totally ok!).

But they’ve “successfully suppressed” those feelings and have not acted upon those emotions.

They assume that “actual homosexuals” just don’t have the same level of will power that they have to suppress those urges. They’ve fought those urges their entire life and look down upon the people who “can’t fight the urges that everyone experiences” towards the same sex.

u/kaci3po 2d ago

Sometimes I think about a scene from the movie "but I'm a cheerleader" where the main character first realizes she's a lesbian. At first she outright denies it as a possibility -- "everyone just thinks I am." Then she's asked if she thinks about girls and she says "sure, but everyone does. Everyone thinks about girls all the time!" It's not until one of the other characters counters "but you only ASSUME that they're thinking of them the same way as you. They're not" that she realizes. Because in the world she grew up in, straight was considered such the default that when she thought of girls like that, she could logically only conclude that this must just be how every other girl thinks, and everyone must just be walking around all the time, suppressing and ignoring their desires. She didn't even realize she was gay until her parents shipped her off to straight camp.

Any country that does not prioritize the education of its citizens cannot truly be called a first world country. Over the last few decades, the US government and Oligarchs (and Canada is getting there as well) have made it so much harder and more expensive to get a post-secondary education, to the point some people literally can't. With this, I feel like we're seeing the effects of an undereducated population and just how easy it is to take advantage of and use them, which I firmly believe was/is the goal. It's much harder to control a population that has been taught critical thinking.

America is slowly becoming a third world country for the majority of citizens, with a seperate first world life for the rich

My girlfriend and I got into the show they made off of HMT, and we never finished it. It was too foreboding, to be honest, it hit too close to reality. At first, I thought "oh, thats cool, another suspenseful dystopian thriller", but then we started pondering how things could reach that point, and some harsh realities are there. Look at Iran pre-'79.

Then I looked at the cultural climate at the time, and realized the position that we may be in someday. It was a dose of reality that I hadn't really considered up to that point, and it was pretty bleak. Fantastic story, more people need to at least encounter it. Although, I guess some people may watch it and fantasize about how much they want that type of world, which is the other edge to the sword. Where some of us see horror in those stories, others may see a "proper world", which is fucked but true.

u/Politics_Marvel 2d ago

Yeah I couldn't watch it for the same reason. Started getting a little too reminiscent of the current political climate and narratives being pushed/ actions taken by people on the right.

Jan 6 would've been their real world takeover day if it had gone how they wanted, like when the Gilead people bombed the White House and staged a mass shooting in Congress in the story. The Trump supporting terrorists were looking to take elected officials hostage and then execute them by hanging them, specifically Mike Pence.

In the show/book, the Gilead people spun the attack they committed as islamic extremist terrorism, in the real world the Trump people tried to say it was actually antifa dressed as Trump people who were attacking the capitol, or that it was just a quiet peaceful protest, a sightseeing tour.

In the book, the Gilead crowd successfully infiltrates the US government to such a degree that after the attack happens, the majority of the remaining officials in the US are part of their cult, so they start instituting mandatory prayer and other overtly religious rules/laws almost immediately.

In the real world, we have the GOP who recently all voted in unison to prevent a government probe assessing how deeply white supremacist attitudes have infiltrated our military and police, and who now regularly equate support for LGBTQ rights with pedophilia, and then handwave away constant mass shootings committed against minorities, women and the LGBTQ community by radicalized men who share their prejudiced attitudes.

This is after all, still a heavily white majority country. Income inequality is getting worse and worse every year, and the discontent and anger the white majority feels about their declining standards of living is being used as a weapon by the likes of Fox News and right wing media + politicians.

The paradox of tolerance is right wing propaganda. They want to convince you that being tolerant is a passive activity, something you allow others to have.

It does, but answering a question about your own actions is not speculation, since it's first hand and speaks to her actions. She was just trying to weasel out of answering the question, albeit, very poorly.

13

u/Mullin20 2d ago

speculation means the same in a legal sense as it does in the everyday normal usage sense. Objecting to a question on the grounds of "speculation" simply means that the objector believes the question improperly calls for answers and conclusions based primarily on assumptions and not entirely on the facts that are properly in evidence. It has no relation to the context of this video clip where the questioner is simply asking the witness whether she ever made a particular statement. It is obvious that MTG simply moronically blurted out a cliche television-drama "legal" sounding word in response. As the witness, it is not even proper for her to make this objection, even if it was somehow applicable to the question.

u/jasperfilofax 2d ago

It would have been hilarious if 'exhibit 5' was completely unrelated and the lawyer knew she would shit herself as they know she'd fall over her own lies.

"Is there anything else you would like to tell to us today before we pull up exhibits 6,7,8,9,10...?"

Come on now, she's not the single dumbest person ever. Yes, she is incredibly stupid and we have evidence of that. But keep in mind that there were a sufficient number of people to vote this dumbshit into office. Surely those people are at least as dumb if not more so.

Ooh just did some digging. It's a stenomask. A sort of padded microphone so the user can dictate what is being said without background interference so it can eventually be typed up/ speech recognition software.

u/Hydroc777 2d ago

She's actually repeating everything that everyone in the proceeding is saying. Yes, she's using speech recognition software to make an initial transcript in real time, and that will be edited later by a scopist to produce the final transcript.

u/carbonflow45 2d ago

Why don't they just use a microphone to get a recording of the actual speakers?

Edit: I guess with similar voices it could be hard to tell who's speaking.

u/skytomorrownow 2d ago

Some really great reasons from the article:

https://www.ecourtreporters.com/ecourt-reporters-news/why-are-stenographers-still-on-the-senate-floor/

Some of the most compelling reasons from the article were:

  1. Being able to ask them to read back what was said just moments earlier. Something still sort of a pain with pure audio.

  2. Being able to discriminate voices. Imagine a raucous Senate hearing in chambers with overlapping speakers. A recording could be very hard to untangle. Or even something like 'below-knee pain' vs 'baloney pain'.

  3. They are more than a recorder, they are sort of like a professional witness.

u/remmij 2d ago

This hearing was such a joke. I watched it live and had to turn it off halfway through because the Georgia judge was so unbelievably biased towards her it was unreal.

The judge spent the entire time sneering/smirking at the prosecution, threw out nearly every argument against her (no matter how relevant), upheld nearly every objection by the defense (no matter how flimsy), bantered on the stand with MTG, allowed two outbursts by her cheering entourage without throwing them out of the courtroom, and allowed MTG to straight up lie on the stand by claiming "I don't recall" to every question she didn't want to answer (despite clear evidence that she did recall and made those statements multiple times).

She and that judge have no business serving... The Founding Fathers would weep.

u/WhatRUHourly 2d ago

It is the entitlement here that actually disgusts me the most. She is a witness. She is being asked questions by an attorney. Her role in this situation is to answer questions from that attorney and, if possible, to explain her answers. If there is a question from that attorney that is against the rules of civil procedure then it is the role of her attorney to then object and to clearly state the rule and reason for the objection. The judge will then determine whether the question is or is not against those rules and either direct her, the witness, to answer or to ignore the question and for the attorney to move on.

It is not her role to decide that she will not answer a question because, by her own determination, it violates a rule of civil procedure (which, by the way, it did not call for speculation as she alleged). That she thinks she is just entitled to ignore questions just because she doesn't like them really grinds my gears. I really wish the judge had stopped her right there and told her that she is not the judge and that she does not get to interpret the rules of civil procedure in his/her court and that she will answer the question unless directed not to by the judge.

There is a level of unknown danger to these kind of ungodly dumb and yet some cunning people who are in the senate. Her face somehow is transparent to her true dark self and you can see in the moment she is caught in a lie, she goes on to justifying the lie and why she said it in the first place.

I can't stand this biblical error for more than few seconds.

At first she's trying to conceal a smile, maybe even hold back laughter. She thinks it's just as funny now as she did when she said it. She's doing a very bad job at trying to hide it, no better than a child. Maybe even a hint of dupers delight.

She collects herself, then deflects and denies.. even when it's so apparent she's caught in a lie. I can't believe we let people like this have any power at all over us.
