Apparently, the punditry thinks we should be happy simply because the Democrats avoided being completely wiped out in the midterms. Sure, we're relieved. People seem to have indeed cared about reproductive rights and even the preservation of democracy. But we're not going to celebrate just yet. Why? Because the Republican Party is still controlled by election deniers and want-to-be fascists who are Hell-bent on minority rule and white supremacy in this country. Do you honestly think one midterm election is going to stop these people? They are already going to challenge several election results, and one of them is only 5,000 votes behind in the race for Secretary of State in Nevada. More than 150 Republicans elected to the House are election deniers, many incumbents among whom voted against certifying the 2020 presidential election. The MAGA base is sending racists and militant right-wingers to intimidate voters and polling stations and drop boxes. The right is openly suggesting some political violence is justified as they project their constant lie about being "the real victims here." That only magnifies as we approach a presidential year, especially if the former guy is their nominee. Actually, political violence is just as possible with someone like Ron DeSantis, who is really just D***** T**** with a political resume.
