So I was chatting with a friend about a mutual friend who posted on Facebook that anyone who attended the protest in DC should be fired, and how there should be social media efforts to “name and shame” anyone who was in DC under MAGA auspices. So I was saying I thought that was taking things a bit far. I mean, rioters are one thing, but people who were just there because they support and believe Trump should be fired and vilified on social media? I think they’re misguided, but that seems really extreme to me. There were tens of thousands of people there who protested peacefully and went home. Plus, it will just drive discourse underground if we ridicule people simply for being MAGA fans. Anyway, this friend LIT into me, basically accusing me of supporting the destruction of democracy, being insensitive to the loss of life, etc etc. It was insanity. It just feels impossible to discuss any of this civilly or rationally.
