    Hold on, what? Was the FBI under Hoover 'just us'? Was Nixon using the power of the presidency to harass people 'just us'? Are executive orders, regardless of which side you are on, 'just us'?

    Are cops 'just us'?

    Hell fucking no. We have a whole Bill of Rights to protect ourselves from 'just us.'

    Just us.

    And whatever we're willing to tolerate from ourselves to assuage our fears.

    I cannot understand your view of government and personal liberty. Mind boggling.

    We elected Nixon.

    We relied on Hoover to keep us safe from radicals.

    Were they from outer space?

    They're us. They're Americans, chosen and sustained in government by other Americans.

    Chosen mostly out of selfishness and ignorance and bigotry and fear, sure.

    But that's us, too.

    I've read that hospital staffers say they have never seen some of those women who took the grinning group photo with #MoronPresident.

    Joseph McCarthy was also an American... but at some point "At the last, sir, have you no shame?" took him down.

    We are what we tolerate. It things are intolerable, protesting and fighting to change it are bone deep American values as well.
