Diary 206

Saturday, October 10th

A couple of people have asked why I put the ‘president’ in speech marks. This is because a true president is someone who fulfills a certain role effectively, with dignity and intelligence. The present incumbent does not do this. The title does not match the actions, any more than being born a nobleman makes one inherently noble.

It’s worth remembering that the domestic terror groups (like the so-called weapon-toting Proud Boys) are actually frightened.  So are the Bible-thumping militants. If they really thought they were the majority then there’d be no need to try and intimidate the rest of us, or attempt to kidnap the Governor of Michigan, or suppress voting, or any other silliness.  They know they’re outnumbered.
