An unappreciation appreciation thread for cult maga

OK, OK, I know, I hear your groans but bear with me loves, I have thoughts:

Before this part of the electorate who embrace fascism under the MAGA umbrella of hate, white supremacy and nationalism, xenophobia, islamophobia, homophobia and women hating bollocks, where given permission to be these nasty fuckers they are, many of these horrors lived among the community unexposed.

Without the insurrection on the Capitol, many would have worked alongside fascists who would fight violently to steal democracy without knowing who they were.

Without their maga rallies and their hate for other, many may still have voted for Trump, and switched their vote to Biden, because his core supporters were demonstrably batshit cray cray.

Without the death cult, and the herd community nonsense that actively tried to kill seniors, there may have been enough seniors to swing that vote to Trump.

Without maga we would not be having serious discussions about what American Fascism looks like in the 21st Century and how we can stop it.

Without the wingnuts we would not have seen record turnouts to turn all branches of government blue, enabling President Biden to have some of the tools he needs to govern effectively.

You can not have an appreciation thread for maga (lower case intentional). But an unappreciation thread seems like a plan. These fuckers tried to fuck democracy and, in the process, fucked themselves. I do not appreciate them. But unappreciating them seems like a plan. Huzzah

1. It was a teaching and learning moment for democracy.

Many of these morons were unwitting accomplices in our national history. Much like their ancestors who provided their lives to the Confederacy 160 years earlier.

2. The direct link from today to the Confederate south is undeniable,

Except today they are everywhere.

3. Very true. If there is one thing we need to understand, the divide is not a regional/state issue.

It's a rural vs. urban issue. I will bet that most of the people who showed up in DC on 1/6 were from small town America. Not all, but many....

4. They all came out of the woodwork and out from under their rocks as if to tell everyone

that the problem with them is real, worse than most of us thought, and needs to be addressed immediately. A wake up call if we ever needed one.

5. Yes, just as suffering under tRUMP for 4 years exposed him and the reTHUGS for what they

are so now the violent fascist behavior of the insurrectionists/seditionists has exposed them
for all to see. That does make it easier to clean them and their mess up but what a price we
have paid for our open eyes!

6. Since the most egregious actors

Deluded enough to think they were going to take over America, are being rounded up. I really didn't think that many people would be willing to give up their lives for Trump. I know we're not supposed to call them stupid, but they really have to meet us half way and stop doing stupid stuff, and go back to being the crackpots at the end of the bar spouting their conspiracy theories and bigotry
