I’ve had it.
I’ve had it with arguments over “defund the police” “no, that’s a bad slogan” “no it’s not.”
THE GOP IS FIGHTING OVER HOW MANY MORE WATER CANNONS AND “RUBBER” BULLETS TO SHOOT AT PROTESTERS.
I’ve had it with white liberals clowning on Nancy Pelosi for wearing kente cloth. The Congressional Black Caucus gave it to everyone, it’s not like Nance went to JoAnn Fabrics and decided to make herself a costume.
Should she have refused to wear it on the basis of Red Rose Twitter being primed for dunks? Where does THAT end? there anything we’re NOT primed for dunks on?
THE GOP IS DRAPING ITSELF IN THE STARS AND BARS, IN CASE YOU DIDN’T NOTICE.
Look at this picture:
Then read every third comment under it calling Joey a child molester or suggesting his mask doesn’t fit right or saying it’s useless for him to show up or arguing he has dementia.
FOR GOD’S SAKE TRUMP IS RETWEETING THAT THE ONLY GOOD DEMOCRAT IS A DEAD ONE, HE’S SUGGESTING A 75-YEAR-OLD SCHOOLTEACHER IS SOME KIND OF ANTIFA SUPERSOLDIER. HE CANNOT GO TEN SECONDS WITHOUT MAKING THIS WORSE.
Make. It. Stop.
Joey B. Biden is gonna be our next president or we’re all gonna die. Nancy Pelosi is gonna stay Speaker of the House and we are going to get a Democratic Senate Majority Leader who will also probably not satisfy anyone. Or we are all gonna die, all of us, either of this plague or whatever Trump decides to fuck up next. That’s all there is to this. And yet we seem to feel compelled at every turn to show how not-in-the-tank we are by making it loud and clear that Democrats, Also, Are Bad.
I want Democrats to be good at the things they say they want to do. And I think they can take us giving them ideas and urging them to fight and rewarding them when they do. But I’m done listening to carping every time Nancy claps back at Donald, I’m done mocking every single symbolic action as awkward and wrong. Jesus, is that really what we’re mad at? Is that really what we want to, and pardon me for saying this, police right now?
You know what? GO BE AWKWARD AND LOOK DUMB, JOEY. WEAR A MASK THAT MAY LOOK SILLY WHILE YOU MEET WITH THE FAMILIES OF THE DEAD. Do some normal politician type gaffes and kick a couple of reporters who bug you off your plane so that everybody can have something normal to be mad about. I swear we should elect him just to give people who need a tan-suit scandal can have one, they NEED it so badly.
The GOP’s brightest lights are running op-eds that are like “what if we did war crimes to Americans because they piss us off,” can we please keep our eyes on the ball here?
