It might be sunny, it might be cloudy, really it’s hard to tell. A little of each, maybe.
I am struggling for insight today, as the horrors of the terrorist attack and attempted coup are revealed, one by terrible one. This is where allowing people to fictionalize reality leads.
And that’s where we’re going today, then. Do not allow others to choose the words to describe reality. Too easily, terrorists become “protesters,” and an insurrection a “riot.” Clear-intentioned antifascists become meaningless “antifa,” which also allows room for the cutesy name of “profa” for fascists (or pro-fascists, but that is just painfully redundant. A person in favor of fascists is a fascist).
Suddenly no one knows who the bad guys are. Spoiler alert, it’s always the fascist.
The group that has gotten everyone to call them “pro-life” has executed prisoners at an incredible rate and just tried to murder members of Congress, killing 5 people, and failing to kill more not for lack of trying. The pro-police, Blue Lives Matter, thin blue line “just comply” crowd beat a police officer to death and sent something like 50 more to the hospital.
Stop letting them control the narrative. Challenge it every time.
