What I'm seeing on social media

Max Stearns


Trumpers are claiming the election was stolen.

That the media rigged this.

That elections aren't called until the very last challenge is vetted.

That the process of mail in ballots was illegal.

That the actual ballots cast for Biden/Harris were made up by non-voters.

That the counting only stopped when Biden emerged on top.


Trump's strongest backers are claiming they were misunderstood.

That there was a hidden side of Trump only they somehow saw.

That the left is intolerant.

That the Democrats are lawbreakers.

That SNL isn't funny.


This all deserves one response.


Silence.


Those advancing these claims will have to calm down for one reason. Our system is not founded upon lies and distortions. Trumpism is. But Trumpism is not our system. It was a temporary virus that people of good faith have to let pass so the health of our nation can be restored.
