I see all these tussles going on in many online groups about how “progressives need to rise above the vitriol,” and I just gotta say: That line of reasoning is one of the biggest loads of horse shit I’ve ever heard.
Anyone who thinks Sarah Huckabee Sanders is now somehow a “sympathetic figure,” merely because she was summarily run out of a restaurant “in shame,” clearly has no concept of what we’re up against, and therefore has zero value in this dire constitutional crisis; this excruciating, groundhog day nightmare that is enveloping us all like a medieval plague.
We are a nation at war. A very uncivil, civil war, one for the very soul of what this country stands for. When kids are being ripped from their parents, when hate groups, emboldened by a clearly racist Commander-in-Chief, are exploding from coast to coast, when corruption at the highest levels of our government has blown past levels never before seen, when a craven, limp-dick Republican congress is unwilling or unable to engage, when all the institutions that our Founders created so that maybe, just maybe, our fragile and noble system might survive are being shredded as to the point of being unrecognizable, forgive me that i might shed zero tears — not one — for Sarah Fucking Huckabee Sanders.
To be perfectly clear: Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a lying, treasonous, soulless minister of propaganda. She is a fetid, reeking, pus-filled abscess in the heart of the fight for freedom of the fourth estate, of civil and constitutional rights. She is incapable of telling the truth, incapable of feeling compassion, incapable of feeling empathy, and — by extension, then — incapable of even fucking feeling shame. She is the face, and mouthpiece, of fascism on American soil. This is not hyperbole.
She represents an administration that has taken hate and vitriol to levels never before seen, an administration that has turned division and hostility into an art form. As such, she – and ANYONE ELSE associated with or supportive of this regime — has ZERO standing to now suddenly request “civility.” That fucking ship has sailed. There is no more playing nice with these people. They need to be pounded into submission with carpet bombs of public outcry, with strafing runs of public shame. From every stinking trench and corner in which they hide.
And so, I’ll just say it: Sarah Huckabee Sanders can go fuck herself.
To liberals and progressives that might disagree — and I suspect there will be many — let us all remember how we so coveted the words of former First Lady Michelle Obama, that marvel of class and humanity; “When they go low, we go high.”
We did, and now here we are.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the rest of her lot — those that would dare stand in front of a nation of battered and under-represented, true, real, ACTUAL Americans and defend the indefensible, on a daily basis and devoid of reason or charity or anything remotely resembling fairness or goodwill – should face much more than merely being temporarily deprived of a bacon fucking cheeseburger.
They should face a lifetime of shame and reckoning, and be judged by history as exactly as they are: a cancer to the soul of a fragile nation.
