From yesterday’s Washington Post:
A longtime Post subscriber in Virginia, one of my regular correspondents, had something to say about that in a recent email about the appointment: “Does she understand — really understand — that . . . the United States is on track to become functionally an authoritarian White Christian nationalist state in the very near future? And if the answer is ‘Yes,’ what is she prepared to do about it?” “Right now,” he added, “nothing else signifies.”
It isn’t just some crank in Virginia. The people who have all the power in the world – the Bezoses, the Wall Street, all of them – this is their animating emotion.
If you go to any place where progressives congregate online, you’ll see that they are downright desperate. Their mood is very dark. The tenor of the vast majority of conversations is that they are two seconds away from permanent Nazism. This mood of fear and desperation is being stoked by the oligarchy-owned media, as you can see in the example above.
You think they won the election and should be at least somewhat content. But to them, the existence of a single person who thinks differently is a complete loss. It’s truly a totalitarian mentality. A single dissident means they are on the verge of losing everything.
