Rage

I’m verbose. Wordy. Mouthy.

I talk too much.

I use lots of words when fewer words would be better.

I have no words for how angry I am right now. I’m so angry I can’t even really feel it because it would just consume.

The following people can fuck off, in no particular order:

  • Clarence Thomas
  • Mitch McConnell
  • Joe Rogan
  • Mark Zuckerberg
  • Peter Thiel
  • Elon Musk
  • Susan Collins
  • Lisa Murkowsky
  • Joe Manchin
  • Kristen Sinema
  • Susan Sarandon

I spent a sizable chunk of my morning researching moving out of the U.S. Why? Because I don’t think it can be fixed and I’m too old to fight in a civil war (plus I really hate violence). Then in a friendly discussion with a couple of old friends on Facebook I made a post where I said, basically, that I’m too old to throw molotov cocktails at fascists. For that, Facebook shut off my account for 24 hours, shut off my ability to post to groups for 48 hours and deprecated all of my group posts for a month.

I’d be amused at the comic absurdity if I wasn’t already so full of rage that I can’t see straight.

Facebook enabled the organizing of right wing Christian nationalists and white supremacists that allowed the 30% of the U.S. population who supports such things to find each other in their little hidey holes scattered around the country. It enabled them to undermine democracy, to elect an incompetent, repulsive game show host and pretend billionaire President so they could manipulate that feeble, orange glob into filling the Supreme Court with their hand-picked fellow zealots who are systematically undoing 75 years of progress in human rights and enabling the transformation of this republic into a theocratic oligarchy.

But when I say I’m too old to fight back that’s against community standards.

Fuck this timeline.
