And its ALWAYS someone else whos whizzing in the cornflakes. Its Obama, its Hillary, its (gasp!) socialism, its the Democrat Party (sic), its union thugs, its the communists (a classic), its John McCain, its government schools, its Jeff Sessions recusal, its the CARAVANS of murderous barbarians headed this way, its the liberal colleges that crank out more liberals, its death panels....Any one of us could go on and name many more RW-paranoia-borne hobgoblins that they can never stop yapping about.
Think how MISERABLE it must be to have hitched your misery-wagon to 45s dim star. Hate this, hate that, get all ginned up while listening to Rush and Hannity, just chugging down a steady stream of rage and being informed about how OTHER people (make them African American, for greater effect) are getting free stuff, all paid for by YOUR TAXES! Blah, blah...blah...
I do not underestimate the danger posed to our country by those who actually believe these whacked-out ideas. But their victimhood is second to none. Every day brings another wave of anger and fear to them. Snowflakes? Theyre absolute slush.
Its reached the point where Democrats are stuck in the roles of caretakers/civic minders for these folks when they do insane shit like start wars or elect Trump. Think of the heavy lifting done in these past two-plus years, just trying to hold the line, playing for time, (still) hoping that our democratic republic will survive this wild ride of lawlessness, corruption, and an authoritarian, white nationalist government. Thankfully, least some brakes were applied to this insane administration by re-taking the House.
Where does it go from here? Every day brings another crisis, gaffe, embarrassment, outrage, and always more worry about a free and fair election in 2020. So we continue to hold fast, and push back as hard as humanly possible. Its all we can do, for now.
