I'm so angry that I'm numb.
There is some good news amongst the idiotic madness in DC and fascist coup attempt being made in the States right now - The senate has been flipped. Both Rev. Warnock and Jon Ossoff have won the Georgia run-off elections. Good. Maybe now someone can do something about righting this ship.
But the news about the MAGA morons storming the Capitol has left me so enraged I can barely think. What gets me the most is the hypocrisy of it all. Echoes of 2016 Republican chants of "We won, suck it" are echoing in my head. The BLM movement - peaceful protests literally begging the police to stop killing folks - was met with tear gas, riot gear, rubber bullets, beatings and death.
Indigenous Americans were gassed, endured water cannons and far worse ON THEIR OWN FUCKING LAND for having the audacity to try and protect it.
These fuckers storm the Capitol, with fucking guns, and there's nothing from the police.
In fact, there's footage of the police opening the fucking gates to these fascist clowns.
There are reports of planted explosives.
How many arrests have been made? Huh? These fuckers are just being allowed to leave.
What did Trump say to these fucking terrorists - don't argue with me. They're fucking terrorists - we love you? You're special?
Don't you fucking dare tell me that this isn't about race, because you bloody well know it is. You have to stop burying your head in the sand - face what your countrymen are if you've any hope of fixing it.
And wipe that smug smirk off your face, Canada. Take a good long look at your own politicians, because they are just the same. Don't think we're any better than the US. We're not.
I'm just so angry right now.
I'm not surprised. No one who has been paying attention is surprised.
But I am furious.
Fuck anyone who supported Trump. And doubly fuck you if you still support him.
