I tried to work today, while my phone was blowing up with the horror show at the Capitol.
Let me be clear about my feelings: Republicans built this. We who have the ability to pay attention saw this coming many years ago, like back in 2000 and before. When Trump “won” (I still think some sort of forensic examination of the course of events will show it was manipulated) we were freaked out.
Today was why. The last four years were awful, but the rule of law held. We had a free and fair and by every possible measure valid election. The results weren’t close, Biden won in a legitimate landslide, both the popular vote and the archaic Electoral College, which was targeted four years ago. That didn’t work this time, so the fascists are enraged.
Don’t anybody EVER come at me with “both sides,” or any defense of the Republican party of today. This ain’t Eisenhower’s party, it’s not even NIXON’s party, for fuck’s sake. He was a fucking crook, but he at least respected the country and resigned when caught. These people don’t give a shit. It’s a fascist regime of thugs and morons, none of them give a shit about America.
Sorry that’s not a cheery and certainly not click-worthy blog post, but Jesus Christ, I’m just so disgusted that it has come to this, two weeks before sanity will return.
