We all know #ThisIsNotNormal. 💯
Some folks are saying it may never be normal again. 🙄

But I'm gonna let you all in on a secret.
Are you ready?

Our "normal" was hot garbage.
No, really.
Hot. Frelling. Garbage.

Let's review, shall we?

<thread> It's going to be too easy for things to start feeling normal—especially if you are someone who is not directly impacted by his actions. So keep reminding yourself: this is not normal. Write it on a Post-It Note & stick it on your refrigerator, hire a skywriter once a month, tattoo it on your ass. Because a klan-backed misogynist internet troll is going to be delivering the sotu. And that's fucked up. - John Oliver
"Normal" gave us a Republican party that flatly refused to work with President Obama. On anything. At all. Ever.

Think I'm exaggerating?
Two words: #MerrickGarland.

McConnell sat on a vacancy in the highest court of the land for a year.

And it was so "normal" we did nothing. Gorsuch arrives at a SCOTUS seat, in which President Obama's nominee is bound & gagged, saying,
"Normal" gave us 60+ votes to repeal the #AffordableCareAct. Heck, it gave us the ACA passing with zero GOP votes.

That's not hyperbole, folks.
The 1st House vote, ONE Republican.
The Senate vote, ZERO Republicans.
The final House vote, ZERO Republicans.

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patient_P… Roadrunner as Obamacare (Affordabilis Care Actus) outmaneuvers a pack of Coyotes as Republicans (Grandium Old Party).
And we?

We rolled our eyes and shrugged.
Because it was "normal" behavior from Republicans.

McConnell changes the rules of the Senate when it suits him. "Normal."

Ryan & House Republicans write a budget in crayon, in secret, and put it to a vote in HOURS. "Normal." A vast swath of people, divided 40/60.<br />
40% wear shirts declaring, 60% wear plain shirts and lament, "We didn't vote because it won't make a difference!"" src="/images/1px.png" data-src="https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D4FqZOeWsAAUu02.jpg">
So when someone says it'll never get "normal" again, do you know what I think?


I for one refuse to go back to accepting GOP shenanigans as inevitable. I refuse to accept that there's nothing we can do. I refuse to accept that "normal" is the best we can do.
This is why we resist. Because "normal" isn't good enough anymore. We deserve better.

We DEMAND better.
We're going to build a new, better normal.

All of us.
So say we all. ✊🏻

Stay frosty out there.
