Let the rot fester and keep trivializing it and I'm sure it will go away on its own.
Here's the thing, Even moreso than the events of 9/11, this event was objectively trivial. But this statement is not meant to minimize the deaths of 3,000+ people nor the very real threat of well-armed fascist mobs mobilized to actual deadly and destructive ends..
But even moreso that the events of 9/11, the overreaction to this event among almost every single person I know is quite real, palpable, and at least to me personally nerve-wracking. My friends do want to kill those disrespectful yahoos. Or at minimum, they, like you, want to break into a happy song and dance anytime they hear about anyone who so much as dared to question our sacrosanct voting machine tallies losing his or her job and/or getting his or her social media account banned.
This has been a complete and total lockstep reaction among my liberal friends (in other words, all of my friends). So while I totally appreciate the sentiment, I don't think that it needs to be stoked any further, at least among its intended audience.
