Silly Site o' the Day

So some idiot ultra-nationalist media person claimed earlier this week that "the left" (like he'd even recognize the real left, most leftists today are centrists at best but the bar has moved so far yadda yadda) is gearing up for a civil war today. Wait a minute, aren't liberals (and again, real liberals are somewhat to the left of today's version, but the bar has moved so far yadda) the ones who don't know how to be polite, unlike those lovely folks who support Nazis and call the cops on black people on golf courses and chant "Lock Her Up" and don't care about asylum-seeking immigrant families being torn apart at our border? Well, in any case, the nutcases are assuming civil war, so a bunch of folks took to Twitter to write "Civil War letters home" about today's supposed insurrection. Well worth reading when you're in your hot dog and/or hamburger coma.
