Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
I am tired. I have been tired since that miserable creature was elected.
I knew trouble would come today. The creature told us it would.
But I am appalled by the severity of what happened in D.C. I am appalled by the lack of preparation. I am appalled by the violence. I am also appalled because I know that if those criminals had instead been #BlackLivesMatter protesters begging for their civil rights, many would have been shot and killed, and their bodies would have been desecrated. Those who weren't shot and killed would have been beaten and hauled off to jail.
The Metro Police fought hard and valiantly to protect the Capitol. Why hadn't the National Guard already been called out to assist when the creature said how big this day would be? Why? Why? Why?
I thought arrests of these insurrectionists would take place when the police received the assistance so desperately needed. Instead, some morons left and those who remained stood around while the cops watched them. They violated the 6 p.m. curfew. They acted violently and posed an obvious threat. Yet they had nothing to fear. The vast majority are Caucasian.
And the creature loves them. He said so. He loves them. They're special.
The kiss-ass senators who committed to trying to overturn election results have backed away from that position. Why did they ever make that commitment? They are the creature's accomplices in terrorist acts. Mitch McConnell will continue his reign unabated.
The light that reaches me is the election in Georgia. It can't be wiped out by this day.
I have been let down––personally––by the police in Jacksonville, Florida, and by a hospital emergency room. I don't know if I'll write about it because it was horrifying.
And now I have been let down by today's insanity.
I am lost and alone. I'm in too much pain to cry.
Infinities of love,
