The truth is that being a ridiculous, bad white person pays dividends. Chances are if you are one you’re at least middle class, you have an enormous right-wing media ecosystem telling you you’re perfect and marvipoo. You have a credulous MSM hanging on your every word and sanitizing your every absurd grievance. You have an entire political party ready to chuck the current system of government for you. You have people across the political spectrum willing to cape for you. You have many in law enforcement policing selectively for you.
You can go and disrupt school board meetings, scream at children in masks, accost low-wage POC working retail…and not get your ass curb-stomped.
The assholes are ascendant. There’s no better time to be a sociopath and plague-spreader. Because no one with any power is going to push back on you.
