Rather of approaching with some bring-together point, or some manner of thesis, Im just going to put words down in an order. Obama was a wise man, an intellectual, but he was also a Radical Black Islamic Socialist, wasnt he, so shit, I cant believe him going on and on about these quote-unquote BOOKS hes checked out, about these quote-unquote VACCINES that do not cause autism, about these quote-unquote HUMAN RIGHTS that he shouldve just made up. And that bigotry likewise comes from the individuals who want to utilize it, who arent True Believers in the bigoted sense, they simply know they can point a finger away from themselves. Hawleys smug horse face, looking at the camera rather of the Congresspeople he just invested hours huddled with– going on about electoral stability, spreading out that lie around magnificent thick. They provided these individuals, their deplorables, a wagon train of lies leading to some fake-ass promised land– a selected individuals for a picked reality going to an utopia of guns and white individuals and personal liberty and American exceptionalism.
Because at the end of the day, they didnt conserve Trump, and that meant they were not “patriots,” and had to go. Hawleys smug horse face, looking at the electronic camera rather of the Congresspeople he simply spent hours gathered with– going on about electoral stability, spreading that lie around magnificent thick. Graham was traveling with Trump just today, wasnt he?
Im simply sort of upset? That its like the Twitter protest that simply took place, which is to say, no one showed up. The hazards are huge, and its simply as most likely that Wednesday was only a trial run.
You do not build new bridges to the people that burned the very first bridges.
( Not YOU all, you all. I know youre not the ones.).
They go on and instead of acknowledging any of it, they cast blame away. They state, you impeach Trump, youre just being divisive. Go fuck yourselves.
They have to own the damage they caused. That comes from saying sorry, from saying, well, shit, that actually got away from us– ha ha, oops, our fucking bad, by the method, Joe Biden is president and we lied for political gain and accidentally unleashed a violent insurrection on ourselves. Its leadership they need, someone to step in and state, were going to return to the party of personal obligation, and not rely on victims to do our redemption for us.

So, rather of approaching with some bring-together point, or some way of thesis, Im simply going to put words down in an order. I do not understand if these words will work to you, and even to me. I can barely assure theyll even make sense.
Im truly not sure what occurs now. I believe they opened the door to something– opened it large in 2016, widest in 2020, but it had actually been slowly drifting open for a long while before that– and now the scary behind that door is out. Care about each other finest as you know how.
I think this nation has actually been injured.
Jesus. I suggest, I didnt understand that when I was composing Wanderers, I was putting this out there. I know Im not a prognosticator– its never the point of science-fiction, to inform the future, but simply the same, a white supremacist militia coup of the government driven by a narcissist and using a pandemic as cover, welp. Welp, welp, welp. WELP.
I have no meaningful words. I have a lot of anger. Its evasive– or perhaps sense and perceptiveness are trembling in the shadow of anger and stress and anxiety over what this nation is experiencing right now.
It has actually been bled and hobbled. And its not just the Capitol siege, full of its gaggle of militant dipshits and troll-faced traitors. Thats an injury, too, a sucking chest wound in our democracy that is presently being covered over with a heap of Band-Aids, not even with their adhesive strips exposed– no, its just a gummy, inelegant wad of them pushed into the hole as triage. Its been the death-by-a-thousand-cuts versus fact and truth and know-how. It didnt start now, it didnt even start under Trump. It was the GOP under Obama, and it was the GOP under Bush, too, and probably under Reagan and on and on, backward through time, and its this ceaseless assault on collective truth. I was going to say its an attack on our agreed-upon truth, however even there– “agreed-upon” shouldnt even be a thing you need to state. We should not need to agree about truths. Agreement didnt utilized to be required. Skys blue, waters damp. Now, you can find a reality to fit your desires– as if the world is a simulation, and all we need to do is call up our preferred Truth, we just require to ask it to tell us what we wish to hear. We hire Alexa and say, Alexa, please tell me that Obama was Kenyan, and there are WMDs in Iraq, and Trump is a masculine genius God-King who will rout all the Satanic Pedophiles hanging out at Tom Hanks house. Siri, please verify for me that vaccines are bad, that the coronavirus isnt real, that Jesus was a capitalist with a machine weapon. Google, reveal me the UFOs, the recovery comet, the flat earth.
Theyre not going to do that. They provided these individuals, their deplorables, a wagon train of lies leading to some fake-ass promised land– a chosen people for a picked reality going to an utopia of weapons and white people and personal liberty and American exceptionalism. As long as they keep using up their choice of realities, as long as they decline fact and fact, theyre going to continue to push these individuals.
And where does that come from? I dont know. I really dont. It comes out of bigotry, in part, I d think– white supremacy securing itself in the only way it can, which is by building for itself a temple of lies in which to dwell. (It cant be constructed on reality, due to the fact that if you believe white individuals are somehow supreme, kid howdy do I have some white people to show you wrong.) Obama was a wise man, an intellectual, however he was also a Radical Black Islamic Socialist, wasnt he, so shit, I cant believe him going on and on about these quote-unquote BOOKS hes checked out, about these quote-unquote VACCINES that dont trigger autism, about these quote-unquote HUMAN RIGHTS that he mustve simply made up. Which bigotry likewise comes from individuals who wish to utilize it, who arent True Believers in the bigoted sense, they feel in ones bones they can point a finger far from themselves. They blame THE CARAVAN or CHINA or BLACK LIVES MATTER or TRANSGENDER BATHROOM ATHLETES while they pick your pocket and stick you with pins, bleeding you and stating, “Oops, wasnt me, wasnt me, it was THEM over there.”
When individuals keep ripping out the damn stitches, you cant recover.
