At this particular moment in history, the grim reality of the Trump Administration (and the mentally-underclocking imbeciles and FitBit Bigots in this country who will stand with President Stupid no matter what) is a national political crisis which is overwhelmingly more important than any other political calamity we currently face.
As we dirty Libtards have been saying for a very, very long time, this is the conversation we need to be having. From Charles Blow in The New York Times ("Soul Survival in Trump’s Hell")
...The real change will come when those who felt compelled to stand on principle and not participate in an election in which they felt they were being forced to choose between “the lesser of two evils” realize the staggering magnitude of the gap between those “two evils.”
By the way, the lesser-of-two-evils argument is poppycock. The choice people faced in November was the difference between dim light and absolute darkness. There really was no comparison. The false parity was a media concoction and a Russian propaganda weapon...
And, at this moment in history, there is also a large and loosely organized cohort of well-paid professionals at every level of the Beltway media who, for various financial and psychological reasons, are desperate for us not to have this conversation. From Matthew Dowsd, ABC New's chief political analyst:
@NYTNarrative huh??? I didn't vote for Trump or Clinton. The duopoly is broken.— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) January 26, 2017
At this particular moment in history there are only two sides in this fight.
On one side there are Trump and his Republican goons, his Fake Christians, his tiki-torch Nazis, his propagandists, his collaborators and his useful idiots.
One the other side there are the Good Guys. Not pure. Not angels. Just the usual mix of American mutts that have always answered the call every time our nation has been threatened --
-- all pointing our pikes and swords and muskets in the same direction and more-or-less not at each other.
Pick a side.
Behold, a Tip Jar!
