One of the most aggravating genre of Blue Check Liberal dumb hot takes is the attempt to shame — or whatever — this or that MAGA person who says something seemingly very stupid in their never ending quest to “own the libs.” But the jokes on them — 99% of the time, MAGA people aren’t dumb, they’re craven. They know exactly what they’re saying and “owning the libs” plays amazingly well with the base.
The point is — autocracy, the ultimate in “owning the libs” — is very, very, very popular in the United States at the moment. To the point that a surprisingly large number of MAGA people are chomping at the bit to use their AR-15s to murder people like me in cold political blood.
But the key thing to remember is — when the moment comes, we’re going to become an autocracy….or we have a civil war. And it won’t be the Reds who start it, but the Blues. I keep saying this over and over again an no one listens to me. My point is — why would Reds start a civil war when they can get everything they want peacefully through the courts, politics and Constitutional shenanigans?
Blues, meanwhile, are slowly being strangled by the ascendant Reds and THEY really do have every reason to leave the Union en masse.
Anyway, the point of all of this is, we’re fucked. Get out of the country if you can. The America we all assumed would always be there is slowly dying before our eyes. And the only question at the moment is do we settle into something along the lines of Hungary or do we go full Nazi?
Only time will tell.
