Tipping point breached. Maybe.
#VIDEO Violent protests erupted across the United States late Friday over the death of an unarmed black man at the hands of police, with murder charges laid against a Minneapolis officer failing to quell seething angerhttps://t.co/mmJrfLjUJy pic.twitter.com/4fh8fr6HPU

I hate to be the bearer of really, really bad news, but I’m pretty sure the future history books will say that 2020 was the first year of the Second American Civil War. The COVID-19 Pandemic, the lockdown, the tanked economy, the shit show president, the tabloid media, and the innocent black man murdered by a cop on camera, plain as day, have all contributed to a perfect waltz of WTF in America, and now I’m pretty sure we’re all fucked.
I feel like a race war could start next week, followed by ANTIFA VS Proud Boys pay-per-view, a then maybe Melania Trump sex tape, and let’s just throw in Eric Trump announcing he is transgendered for good measure. I mean, why not? We do, after all, live in a world where honest-to-God monkeys broke into a lab in India, stole mother fucking samples of actual blood that was positive for the COVID-19 virus, and then promptly escaped because they’re fucking monkeys for chrissakes.

Furthermore, Donald Trump recently advocated murdering people for stealing flat screens, plus the illiterate orange fuckstick announced he was going after Twitter because they finally called him on his dangerous announcements? Oh, and let’s fix one big problem; let’s stop calling Trump’s communiqué “tweets.” It allows him the luxury of being fucking mental because the word ‘tweet’ is a silly, stupid fucking word. These are real statements from a sitting president, one who uses Twitter like a gay meth-head on a monster cock, ready to unleash a tidal wave of filth and degradation, directly onto the faces of every last American citizen.
Oh, I almost forgot; CNN headquarters in Atlanta was attacked by a large group of demonstrators and a Black Lives Matter flag was raised in front of the building. Finally, Trump has something in common with BLM – a mutual disdain for CNN, albeit for entirely different reasons. Either way, whenever Trump and BLM are on the same page, it’s a good bet the universe is about to collapse onto itself, so buckle up kids because I think this is where the dangerous sects of the left and right provoke each other to behave like idiots, dragging all of us down into their irrational game of chicken.
Allow me a brief moment to point out a very key detail to everything I am telling you; I know fuck all. You have to admit though, there is a slew of potentially transformational things happening simultaneously, and none of us know how to competently traverse these dangerous, shit-infested waters.
Oh, and hey, a New York City police precinct was breached by protestors last night. How fucking brazen is that? Around the same time violence erupted in Houston between police and protestors, and of course, there was more violence and rioting in Minneapolis where George Floyd was clearly murdered in plain view by Officer Derek Chauvin. The casual manner in which Chauvin killed Floyd added a nasty, sociopathic flare to the incident, crystallizing my personal view that in all likelihood we actually exist inside the bad acid trip of some random hipster who has been tripping balls continuously for 4 years. Shut up, it’s possible.
So come on you dipshits, we are all on borrowed time here, right? Deep down you feel it too, I know. Can somebody please tell me how this all ends? Is some uniting figure going to bridge the gaps between the right and the left, and holy shit did you just laugh really hard too because there are zero unifying leaders today and real unity is a pipe dream in America? Yeah, me too.
Since I am not a for-real political nihilist, I am ultimately compelled to leave at least a paltry amount of space for hope; the possibility of immediate peace, a loosening of the grip polarization has on us, an awakening across the spectrum that we are completely and utterly leaderless on this planet. The world is run by gangsters, fraudsters, cheats, and villains. And that will never, ever change, kids.
Still, I hope Officer Chauvin is convicted and spends at least 25 years in prison, but I doubt that will happen. I hope Trump resigns so he doesn’t inflame the entire country via political stunts and provocative outbursts, but I really fucking doubt that will happen. I hope the second wave of COVID-19 is minuscule, but I fear it will be twice as big as the initial outbreak. I hope I’m wrong about that one.
I hope some of the people who are angry for legit reasons don’t squander all their political capital on fires, violence, and chaos. I am legit hopeful on that last one because I see men like Killer Mike striking the right balance between understandable emotion, and a viable strategy forward for black communities, something that can uplift people and won’t provoke the state into behaving tyrannically, resulting in further chaos and suffering.
Drop everything and watch Killer Mike’s speech in Atlanta tonight. I don’t agree with him on all of his politics, but that doesn’t matter tonight. He’s 100% right about how to handle protesting and how to change the system… and it isn’t burning your city to the ground. pic.twitter.com/VzDNMTM0wH

Aw come on, cheer up. Remember, you are living in an era where anything can happen!
Hypothetically, maybe Trump has a heart attack, becomes a martyr of sorts, causing a cascade of joy and goodwill around the planet, so powerful that even the most fervent MAGA enthusiasts buy into the notion that Trump’s abrupt expiry is all part of God’s plan to bring peace to the world! Yay!
Now, I am certainly not advocating for anything bad to happen to Trump, I just really enjoy the classic story where the hero fucking gets it in the end, like a boss, instead of some cuck who’s too much of a pussy to man up and die for his country.
But I digress.
So in the spirit of not expediting The End Times, how about we sane folks all agree to ostracize everyone on the fringes, the lunatics who view political opposites as the enemy, the ideologues who dehumanize the other side, the reactionaries too unhinged to be reasonable, the blowhards too enraged to listen, and the zealots too radical to trust. Fuck all of them for risking our lives over politics.
That’s all I got. Good luck, fuckers. You’ll need it. We all will.
