You’re not wrong. It is totally nuts



The Lincoln Project

 

Glenn, if you've ever asked yourself if maybe you are overreacting to something shitty the GOP freedumb mob did…

If you've ever wondered if you live in a bubble...

If you think you should follow different people online and broaden your perspective because there must be something you're missing…

Or if somehow, despite what your most core instincts are telling you, you think they're right about something and you just can't figure out what it is…

You can stop.

There's nothing wrong with you.

Your bubble might be anti-Trumpworld and you might only follow like-minded people online but you need your sanity like we all do.

And you know what? Your instinct that something is terribly broken...that the MAGA mob is doing irreparable harm to this country...damage you don't even think can be reversed in your own lifetime. 

You're not wrong.

Their thirst for power. Their desire for the spotlight.

Knows no limits. 

They have tapped into the worst, dare I say the most DEPLORABLE sentiments throughout this country, and dragged them onto center stage. This is what they are no longer bothering to hide but openly saying out loud - and legislating:

"Women, we no longer care if your pregnancy is the result of sexual assault or rape or your pregnancy might kill you. Have the baby and figure out a way to support it and no we're not increasing the minimum wage. Shame on you for being a leech on the system."

"Teachers, show your face in school, no masks allowed. We don't care if i

"Children, you're too little to make decisions. Your life doesn't really matter anyway because you can't vote for us. Most of you will make it through intubation. Tell your parents to shut it."

They. Do. Not. Care.

They don't care that states where vaccination rates are the lowest (namely the South) are also where the ER visits and hospitalizations of children are 4x the national average.

Of course they don't because that smells a lot like facts and you know they don't care about those either.

They're in fact incredibly busy not caring about you, the women you know and love, and the children who will someday (God willing) be the voting population of this country.

  • They are focusing on being "believable" - yes, Chris Christie actually said that.
  • They're focused on being electable - lookin' at you DeSantis - and it's not lookin' good.
  • They're focused on reigniting the January 6th atrocity by rebranding it and calling for another riot later this month.

Twenty years ago this month, after a rocky election and continued political divisiveness, this country came together after a terrorist attack rocked our nation.

We are not the same country today. We are weaker and if we know that, our global adversaries know it.

And I don't think we'll be able to come together again on anything until we get rid of the stranglehold the Trump GOP and their far-right maniacs have on this country. That is what we are working for and that is what we have to do. Your help is keeping us in this fight.

I'm telling you this because it is so hard to believe what is going on. Sometimes you have to pinch yourself to actually believe it.

We are right there with you. Our team is feeling it too. I can't remember when the men and the women who make up The Lincoln Project have been this furious. And they have every right to be.

And there's one thing our opponents should know by now about The Lincoln Project: The more pissed off we get the harder we fight.

I will tell you the same thing I tell our amazing team. 

This is the fight of our lives. Your anger, your disbelief, your rage is not futile. Not hopeless. It feels like it is. But let it show you just what we have to do. We have to beat these insane lunatics running our country into the ground, killing our kids, and thinking horse medicine is a better idea than a medically proven vaccine that the f'ing FDA has approved.

Rant over. For now.
