Holy Fucking Hell!

Today was marked by two significant events. Really, it was three, but let’s focus on two shall we.

Senators Elect Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock

Today, two Democrats running for the US Senate won their races, beating out the incumbent Republicans for their seats and handing the US Senate to the Democratic Party, as President Elect Biden prepares to assume office on January 20th. But that isn’t the first significant event, the significant event was the fact that this happened because BIPoC in Georgia stood up and refused to be silenced anymore.

It was a great day for the Democratic Party and for America, because of people who have been historically marginalized, disenfranchised, murdered, and treated as unequal to others, simply for the color of their skin. It is no small pleasure to see a man like Senator Elect Raphael Warnock, a man of color, from the south, helping to unseat one of the greatest evils in this nation. Because of him, and also because of Senator Elect Jon Ossoff, Senator Mitch MacConnell will no longer be Senate Majority Leader, a man who spent the better part of 8 years obstructing President Obama, the first person of color to serve as President of this nation, and he will no longer be able to obstruct what is in the interests of American families, while enriching himself and his friends at our expense. I admit to feeling no small sense of glee at dreaming of this evil man shitting himself as he realized he had lost his grip on the nations throat that he has held for far to long.

The second significant event of the day came as the US Legislature began their task of confirming the Electoral College Votes for President Elect Joe Biden. But that too wasn’t significant, what was? When a mob of MAGA clad people attacked the US Capitol Building as the count was underway inside. They broke in windows, they stole property, they invaded the offices of duly elected officials. All to be heard you say? NO! This was in every way a seditious coup.

It was an attempt to infiltrate and take hostage the US Legislative Branch. To hold them at gun point, and wrest power from the people of this nation,

via their Democratically Elected Senators and Representatives, and put it into the hands of a totalitarian, authoritarian, despot, dictator named Donald J. Trump.

These are not patriots. These are not lawful acts. This is sedition. This is terrorism. This is mob rule, in the nations capitol building. Only 4 dead? Had this been BLM, it would have been hundreds. 52 Arrested? Had this been ANTIFA it would have been hundreds more. This is White Supremacy, meets White Privilege. This is why this nation is so completely fucked.

Nearly half of the nation champions the man who called for this traitorous attack on the nations capitol, a one Donald J. Trump, for no reason other than to deny reality. And we continue to bury our heads in the sand as to what is wrong at this nations core. That this has happened because this nation is so completely broken. That nearly half of this nation is without empathy, without compassion, without respect, without reason. Nearly half of this nation hates the other half so much, that they will happily watch it all burn down rather than share this nation in peace.

One part of this nation wants everyone to be taken care of, while empowering them to be their best selves, and to follow their passions, to enrich the nation be removing the shackles of our classist system of education, and freeing us from the chains of corporate tyranny in this modern age of capitalist feudalism. The other part of this nation hates the former because it means they will have to give up their hatred of black and brown people. It means they will have to give up on the lie that they are just temporarily embarrassed millionaires. It means they will have to start to recognize the inherent humanity of others and not just live in selfishness, greed, and willful ignorance.
