8. Explains some the high drama crap

I think Trump was ultimately elected by racists, sexist and assholes, but those people were enabled by bad information I guess. The thing is, it’s not that hard to find Hillary’s record of service, but the will had to be there. So many WANTED to think the worst, WANTED to spin out of control. To the point of seemingly be unable to process properly.

Anywhere you turned there was trolling. We found our “safe spaces” We Hillary supporters, as best we could. We were trolled even there. It wasn’t enough to overcome the manipulated distaste so many felt for her. Even today, the “bad candidate” meme is still out there. Trump was no secret. He never should have had a chance. Whatever Hillary’s faults, there aren’t enough for one single vote for Trump.

And here we are. I am still angry. The thing the right doesn’t understand, with all their ‘trigger a liberal” cringy nonsense, is the right is history, they need to be fought, because we are evolving past them, nobody is going back. Joy-Ann Reid had a great article on that. But there are elements of the left, who cling to the Democratic Party while constantly tearing it down, without even the moral courage to openly go third party. I can deal with third party people. I get them. I can’t deal with, or rather, am “triggered” by the enemies within.

I’m not talking about criticism or “echo chambers”. The day we stop improving and evolving is the day we die as a party, we have to be open to criticism, we can’t afford to be an echo chamber. I’m talking about the ego-driven assholes who simply use the Democratic Party to shout their shit in front, and talk their shit in back.
