FFS, they're purging DHS, installing tons of extremist judges in record time, war on press, spreading lies, propaganda, allowing election interference, you name it. Between Trump & McConnell, they're weakening nearly every defense we (their opponents) have. This is happening NOW.
2/ News outlets should report all of this in that context, too: A power grab, a very alarming, very dangerous, very real long term power grab that would keep racist, bigoted, corporate GOP policies in place for decades & longer. This is urgent, this is a crisis.
3/ There are times when objective reporting has to be less objective, when "both sides" must be set aside in order to save democracy, to save the heart and soul of our country, when news outlets warn citizens. This is one of those times. This is the real national emergency.
4/ Do I sound alarmist? I own it, yes, because I feel alarmist. I feel genuinely scared when I add up all the elements that are ripping us to bits, othering so many of us, squashing our rights. & I feel that way bc I don't see a way out.
5/ "We must win in 2020!" everyone will reply. Of course, but that won't end this. It will only give us a fighting chance to combat, maybe repair some of it. & if we don't win? That's a very real possibility. Then what? Seriously. I don't know. But keep fighting. Never give up.
6/ Rant over. If I worried you, good. Then maybe you'll fight even harder. But dammit, Commercialized News, do your part, too. This is not the time to think about profits, this is the time to think about the future of the US.
