“Greatest country in the world”
My mother is a US resident, and recently had to request that her doctor wear a mask when she went in for a checkup. He told her that the virus isn’t real, BUT! that it will go away after the election, because it was created by THE REST OF THE WORLD to make Donald Trump look bad so he would lose the election.
It’s totally ridiculous, but it’s actually quite frightening how Trump & Friends © have succeeded in normalizing Doublethink (like in 1984). It’s frustrating and disappointing. Any sort of humane future is turning out to be quite an undertaking…
In its own way, Lemmy is part of that better future for us.
Okay sorry to hijack your thread!
The amount of times I have heard “It will go away after the election” is too damn high.
