So, a week after election day, social media has (almost) gotten back its sanity, huh? This year’s election has definitely brought out the monster in many people: you’ve got supporters wishing for women to be gang raped, for families to be murdered, and for people’s brains to scatter on the sidewalk. And of course, there were also those who were so quick to insult and denigrate others (and then post Bible quotes later on!). And all these for what? To “defend” their candidates against those who do not share their political views! Social media has revealed much about the candidates and, un/fortunately, about friends, relatives, and acquaintances as well. I wonder how things will be in 2022.
