Well that escalated obviously over 4 years!
None of us who have been watching the Cavalcade of Political Hate that has been Trump’s obscene term of malice can pretend that the Orange Lives Matter Insurrection we all witnessed was a surprise.
The attempt to nakedly usurp Democracy has been building every hour of his toxic Presidency.
This was the very obvious conclusion to the alternate reality of spiteful chaos that Trump has championed.
But as I watched Trump lunatic after Trump lunatic interviewed as they rampaged through the Capital Building, I didn’t feel angry at them, I honestly felt a terrible, terrible pity for them.
They have had their fear and their ignorance manipulated by forces far beyond their tiny insignificant intellects.
These morons are suffering from a shared collective mental illness! They believe a Satanic child sex cult is running the world, bioengineering the Covid virus to be spread by 5G to bring about a shadowy one world government for fucks sake.
I’d put money on the table that at least 50% of them think the Earth is flat, 30% think dinosaurs are a hoax and at least 15% who think Elvis is still alive.
Those delusional Orange Lives Matter nutters are a symptom of a much nastier and far more wicked disease, and that’s where the blame should go.
The blame should go on Trump whose Presidency from candidate announcement to this current bleak scaring of democracy has been one corrosive stain after another on the institutions that protect the American people. He has grown this tumour, he has lit a fuse by falsely claiming a rigged election and he told the crowd to march on the Capital Building after enflaming them with lies.
The blame should go on the gutless Republicans who have refused to stand up to the worst excesses of this Orange Fascist.
The blame should go on Fox News for enabling his lies and his fantasies.
The blame should go on Facebook for weaponising his disinformation with algorithms designed to make them profit from deceit and manipulations.
We should pity Trump’s followers but we should punish him and his enablers who set this abomination in motion.
