This morning #ICalledMyReps and they wouldn't pick up.

Thom Tillis has several offices in NC.

All of their phones are shut down. There's a "we just help with hurricane Florence stuff! Stay safe!" message & no way to leave a voicemail.
Which is funny, bc they were answering their phones when I called to them last week. They weren't "shut down for a hurricane that ended weeks ago" back then.
This has nothing to do with Florence. This is a communications shutdown because they *don't want to hear from constituents.*
Folks, this is rape culture 101. Go ahead & victimize people. Put rapists in power. But having to face real people angry about those abuses of power? That's too much for grown men to bear.
I'm reminded of Larry Nassar when he had to actually listen to his victims tell their side of what he did. In a v controlled environment, I might add, where they had no chance of hurting him- much safer than his victims ever were with him.

And he begged to not have to face them.
Conservatism is chickenshit.

The movement puts on this facade of machismo, red meat, guns, & swagger.

But when the rubber hits the road? When it comes to petty consequences like "people talk about consequences"? They run, and they hide.
Conservatism relies on looking & feeling respectable.

In other words, the worst thing that can possibly happen to them is catching hell for bring the sleazy, coin-slurping, rape-enabling gutter trash that they are.
I get how Tillis might think "the poor ladies answering the phone at the local office in High Point don't deserve to get yelled at."


If you can't handle hearing about how putting a rapist on a lifetime SC seat is a bad, you don't belong in today's GOP.
Senators: the way to spare your staff from having to take heat for your garbage decisions is to not make garbage decisions.

Until then, expect to catch hell from every possible angle.
I'm in a blood-red state, and *my* senators are going into hiding. They're scared. Keep yelling.
.@ThomTillis You're making a huge, national, legacy-defining decision today.

You work for us.

Yet your offices are refusing constituents' phone calls.

You're a disgrace.
