Catching Up: 2019

“The Republican Party has become the most dangerous organization in world history.”
—Noam Chomsky

These were put up in LA and the San Francisco Bay Area in late December, 2019. Although a lot has happened since then, I can't say much has changed. If anything, the Republican party's gotten worse, and all these signs are just as true now as they were then. Depending on your criteria, they've tried to illegally seize power 4 or 5 times since losing the election in November  2020.

Donald Trump is far from being the first person to claim he won an election he lost, nor the first to make the claim with absolutely no evidence to back it up. I do believe however, that he may be the first person in history to lose an election and claim victory with absolutely no evidence whatsoever, who honestly thought it would just be given to him on the strength of his say so. Perhaps historians could prove me wrong on this, but I believe Donald Trump has cultivated a sense of entitlement unequaled by any historical figure going all the way back before Rome, the Greek City-States, the dynasties of Persia and Egypt, the Minoans, Assyrians, Babylon... all the way back to the very Dawn of Civilization.
