You asked - what's the problem?
I took that as you having not seen that i wasvecaggerating. But let me answer in a more relevant way.
BLM is a government entity. Repubs are now going to run the gov't. Repubs are beholden to Far-right, extremist Christians, andba slew of other haters, who will need a symbolic sacrifice.
Do you think TTITD, with its sexuality, nudity, grug allegations, libertatian tolerance for all perversions would survive if some radical, funded, Repub group demanded that it be shut down on "moral" grounds?
I have not devoted as much of my life to TTITD as you have. But i will be saddened if that scenario comes to being. At leadt one federal Judge in Nevada would be glad to see it happen...
Sunbeam, we'll have to agree to disagree. I know of a number of solid Republicans who haunt this forum, many if not all you respect, and none of them embody the steriotypes you believe to be the modern GOP. I don't think that Burning Man will be the least bit effected by what is happening in Washington, for if it were, then they would have tried to close down TTITD back in 2002. But of course that didn't happen. And you know why? Because Republicans are not at all what you think they are. Now are there any like that? I'm sure, just as there are racists, up-tight Christians/Jews/Catholics, and a slew of other haters in the Democratic Party. (Hello Al Sharpton.) The GOP has no interest whatsoever I'm sure in closing down Burning Man. Let's face reality: Northern Nevada is very politically and culturally conservative/libertarian. If they haven't managed to shut us down by now, what makes you think some junior senator from Arkansas has any interest in doing the same?
