Who said trump was an “authoritarian?” I’d be laughing at that assertion too, as he is clearly no authority figure. Also, you sound pretty paranoid. Who’s making hundreds of false accusations? Who’s threatening to take your voting rights and property away? Who’s planning to put dozens of people in prison “as soon as they are in power?” Ohhh — right… this is the thing y’all are afraid will happen. Like, if POC were to ever take over majority status in this country. And the deep unrealized fear that they’d possibly do to “us” everything we ever did to “them.” Thing is, until you start listening — just listening — to people who look less like you, who act, think, and believe differently than you, you’ll never be able to escape from the chokehold of fear that the supermajority GOP has so carefully and intentionally placed around your necks.
