I’m a borderline communist but there are facts and very real feelings that manifest themselves in behaviors that need acknowledging. There are some horrible truths about so-called liberal and progressive politics that need saying. And when I do on certain spaces, liberals will attack ferociously even as we agree on the larger principles. I feel they need to protect the narrative more than they do the truth, which is just as dangerous — if not more so, than arriving at conclusions based on erroneous facts.
I don’t know where this is all going to end, but your kicker was spot on. The tension is building, winter is coming and this will probably not end well.
