Partly this is the fault of the Republican nominee, who is constantly lying to them. But it's also the fault of the Republican Party they themselves made, which is a conspiracy of millions to ignore the uglier facts of life in the 21st Century: racism, environmental decay, gun violence... and the political and economic breakdown we're witnessing all around us.@trever_talley You will cry in a Wal-Mart next to immigrant families buying soda.— Paul Bibeau (@paulbibeau) October 7, 2016
These people are beyond statistics, beyond arguments, beyond facts. You won't reach them with appeals to reason. You must strike them a vision of what Camus called the Absurd, which waits for us all on every street corner. You must remind them of the existential horror that is our lot.@Suzzequ1Sue Immigrant hordes are waiting for the Democrats to burn your home to the ground so they can put up an abortion clinic. #Doom— Paul Bibeau (@paulbibeau) October 7, 2016
The only way any of them will come back to the light is by facing the cold fear we all face, which has the power - on any given day - to destroy us or to restore us to our senses.@HarrietTubman52 They don't wish you Merry Christmas while you shop, because everything fails and sputters out in the end.— Paul Bibeau (@paulbibeau) October 7, 2016
Is it worth it? Is truth, or even the pathetic attempt at truth, worth it, when it comes at such a price?@HarrietTubman52 @realDonaldTrump Nothing will follow you. You will forget and be forgotten. Your tangerine Jesus won't help.— Paul Bibeau (@paulbibeau) October 7, 2016
The only response is that the attempt at truth is what we do. It's what makes us people.
Does the universe, with all its stupid russet-colored cruelty, care? No. But what of it?@trever_talley Trump will shame you in front of your friends and then take your money on his infomercials.— Paul Bibeau (@paulbibeau) October 7, 2016
We care. Telling Trump supporters that they live in a universe of bewildering pain in which honesty is the only possible redemption, however provisional, is our work. It's the only chance we have to salvage dignity from this.@Suzzequ1Sue Your emoticons are as sad and ineffectual as your blind optimism. #Trump will be crushed like your dreams.— Paul Bibeau (@paulbibeau) October 7, 2016
