I’ve been on a tear lately about how much the rhetoric or narratives that define our politics don’t line up very well with reality. Our cities aren’t ablaze, black Americans today aren’t victims of genocide,” opposing masking protocols doesn’t make you Rosa Parks, Joe Biden isn’t so impaired he doesn’t even know he’s alive,” protests that are fiery” aren’t mostly peaceful, Antifa goons aren’t Biden voters,” Section 230 doesn’t allow Mark Zuckerberg to break into your home and make a sandwich out of your liver, etc.
