Slow news day yesterday, huh? Just kidding, I didn’t do any work after about 2:00 pm here and was glued to Twitter yesterday. On one hand, I’m not surprised at all–this is what liberals were worried about in 2016 and we got laughed at and called snowflakes–and on the other hand I’m still shocked at the utter confidence of white men not even trying to disguise who they are as they attempt a fucking coup.
Absolutely unbelievable footage in this Vice article: Storm the Capitol as a White Man and You’ll Get It (A Selfie With a Cop)
Hey Alexa, what is white privilege?:
‘White privilege is storming the capitol building and not getting shot’.

(Not only did this guy somehow not get attacked or killed by the police, he get a fucking interview with the New York Times)
2016: it’s only four years, how bad can it get
