The results of the 2016 election are still raw for a few zany characters in the community that rival the cat and mouse pathological tug of war involving the emotional bloodbath of an epic breakup, where reality remains a one-sided unresolved nightmarish grasp at desperation in attaining some semblance of a lingering closure.
For a group in the Seattle region, the intensified unbalanced emotions stemming from President Trump’s successful ascension to the White House, has led to a series of deliberate and aggressive actions that are ensconced within the envious compartments of the extreme.
In the “you just can’t make this stuff up” news story of the week, a woman, who endured a bout of self-proclaimed phantom PTSD stemming directly from the election results, made the conscientious decision to directly combat her regressive despondence, in forging a part activist and part support group (coming to a local ale house), fueled by a hate for Trump with the goal of removing local republicans politicians and ultimately the president from office. According to the Seattle Times, the beleaguered voter and countless others across the nation, suffering from the latent hangover as victims to the uncontrollable in life, are part of the disconcerting and growing “Indivisible” national movement, where the trollish tactics of online and social network commentary take on a real life form, and blind activism and public demonstrations target specific individuals, rather than broad issues.
Basically, the Seattle area chapter has been engaged in tactics that rival stalking in the incessant harassment of republican politicians, methods of coercion that echo the sentiment of the modern university progressive, and the general playbook of paid protesters responsible for a complete absence of dialogue, by completely shouting down any differing opinions. The al a carte menu of forceful annoyances, includes non-stop phone calls, constant emails, demonstrations at local political offices, personal engagement of the enemy at local events, and behaviors that certainly puts decency to shame. How a full-time employee is able to balance a 40 hour- workweek worth of specified political activism into a normal schedule borders on the surreal. The subject of the article, an employee at a rather large tech empire based East of Lake Washington, allegedly reached such an negatively charged raw adverse reaction to Trump’s nomination, that emotional breakdowns were typically part of her nightly routine to achieve sleep, and spewing the hate is therapeutic. The $100 question is, who is ultimately funding the organizational effort of these fine Americans?
While the Indivisible vigilantes facilitate anger and contempt as the driving force for widening the political chasm of society, local democrats still consider the group to be fringe entity, and worthy of caution, rather than collaboration. It’s always easier to make acquaintances with a hornet’s nest, or in this case, a time bomb of a fragile emotional balancing act, waiting to explode as someone delves into criminality.
