The liberal sensitivities are shaken up by the attack on Capitol. But the attack was nothing more than a spectacle. It did not have any potency of successful power seizure. It is funny that now a reactionary gimmick is now portrayed as the historic attack on great American democracy. In truth, the common people of any political inclination see the Capitol as an oligarchic institution. So the attack should rather be seen as infighting between the liberals and trumpists.

@aseem It's all a big meaningless spectacle, like Wile E. Coyote running into thin air. The real elections happened when Sanders and Warren lost to Biden. I don't quite understand why the republicans aren't happy about Biden being the president, but then again, they call him a socialist.

@aseem Well at least for sure it made the US seem really silly looked at from outside, if nothing else.

@sotolf How do you hide some part of the toot?

uspol 

@aseem There is a button down when you write that says 'CW' you click that and write a title in the box that shows up, and then it's hidden, usually used to hide stuff that some people may not want to read :)

@aseem @sotolf Fosstodon's code of conduct requires us to use content warnings for everything that may be controversial. That's why you may find lots of toots with US politics (uspol) CW these days because of the elections and the riots/coup.

@hurtado @sotolf Okay. I will use it henceforth.
