I'll say this clearly for you people in the back who just don't get it: I'll take a government full of establishment hacks over a fascist bigot threatening the existence of American democracy any day of the week. Hell, I'll fight for that "establishment" if it saves this country.
You want to make new law, pass progressive legislation, build a fairer country? Me too! First, save the system of laws by casting out this criminal regime. It's the whole ballgame. We will advance NOTHING till he's gone.
I have zero patience for all of your "well, Hitler was just a symptom of something larger" bullshit. Ride or walk, it's your choice. Do you even care? Is it all an intellectual exercise? Does this fucking BORE you?
This election is about defeating Trumpism - the attack on our democracy. That's it. In Congress, it will be hearings and impeachment. Commissions. Prosecution. In the states, we need Democrats whose first order of business is opposing Trump - protecting people from the worst.
Get your head out of your ass. TRUMP is the issue. Sure, McCain was terrible from a progressive POV. That he was - by far - the most effective Republican opponent to the criminal regime shows just how badly this battle is going. The #GOP is broken. It lies prone to fascism.
If McCain's carefully scripted attack on Trump from beyond the grave - he worked on it for a year - gets anyone off the sidelines, GREAT. That it dominated a news media that is itself in thrall of the pretender is a clear win. I don't need to hear about how imperfect that all is.
You media "commentators" - you analyst types, you hot-take architects - what part of ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE do you not fucking get? It's like a God-damned hostage tape every day around here. Ride or die. This is it. There's no irony involved. Only brutality. OPEN YOUR EYES.
Sorry to cuss you all out on a quiet Sunday morning of a holiday weekend. I apologize. BUT I JUST CAN'T TAKE ANY MORE OF THE FUCKING BULLSHIT. Ride or die in 65 days. 🇺🇸
