Some people ask us, "why the hell do you tweet when you get so much hate in return?" While those on the right often claim that there is a nefarious plot and "dirty democrats" or "Soros" money behind each of our tweets, we find such accusations amusing. Typically, those who resort to such tactics lack valid counterarguments to our posts. Instead of engaging in a constructive discussion, they attempt to discredit our ideas by insinuating that they are not our own but rather paid propaganda. Such allegations could also stem from a satirical video, which Infowars and Alex Jones disseminated years ago:
I will NEVER forget the awful dread Ii felt on Election Night in 2016 as Trump was declared the winner. Dread so strong I cried. I don’t even have kids. But I know kids, and I am a woman, live in a state where whites are outnumbered by Hispanics, and where gun ownership was already unfettered. Where militias and the KKK still flourish. A complicated panoply of emotions from which I viewed the election of a well known racist grifter who (for decades) grabbed women by the pu**y and regarded them only by appearance. Who welcomed foreign adversary help in his campaign and threatened his competitor with jail during debate. All I saw was a stage set for disaster. For ALL of us. And it ain’t over yet. We are LIVING that dread I felt 7 years ago (you guys more than most!).
Keep writing, keep Tweeting. Whatever. It. Takes. ✌🏻
