i guess it has been long enough. 6 months is long enough that i can say this now…

it’s frustrating to me that, all throughout trump’s presidency, people like me said that something like jan 6th was both possible & likely, and we got called alarmist.
the reason i’m frustrated is that it should not have been possible to call us alarmist.

trump telegraphed his intention to foment jan 6th early and often.
like, why did it make you feel cool and fulfilled to call us attention-seeking hysterics?

you annoyed me then and the memory of what you said annoys me now.
you gaslit us and told us we were hysterical when we said it was reasonable to fear that trump was going to do a coup.

but his own generals feared it, so—??
not just the mainstream media. the LEFT, wise-asses on my own damn side were telling me to stfu and sit down.
of COURSE the collection of know-nothings, actual dullards, racists, misogynists, antisemites, conspiracy theorists, terfs, islamophobes, and assorted shit-faces on the RIGHT were denying there was anything to be afraid of! if it had ~only~ been THEM, this thread wouldn’t exist.
