Hey conservatives, can we stop "owning the libs"?

Look, I get it. It was 2016 and you guys inexplicably won the 2016 election and you needed a reason to celebrate. But this wasn't so much celebration as it was being the asshole fans who riot after Game 7 and rub their opponent's nose in it. This shit may have been cute in the early days of the Trump administration, when we were still shocked that he won and was going to be president. But here's the thing that I think you need spelled out for you because nobody else will say it:

It's been 5 fucking years! You're not owning anybody anymore!

You can play these games all you want, but if you're still voting with the idea of "owning the libs" or "making liberals cry", the only person you are owning is yourself. This shit just isn't funny anymore. If you vote with the idea of "owning the libs" or "making liberals cry", then you're a psychopath of the Norman Bates variety and should probably be checked into the nearest mental health facility to get your head examined, because you are a danger to yourself and to others.

By voting to "own the libs", what you're really doing is electing batshit crazy politicians like Ron DeSantis, or Pete Ricketts, or Marjorie Taylor Greene, or Matt Gaetz, who enact incredibly reckless policies that do long term harm to both you and me. And of course batshit begats batshit, so our politicians that we elect now, like Marjorie Greene, will seem relatively tame to the ones who are elected 15 - 20 years from now. And these are people who you wouldn't trust to run a 7-11, let alone the entire United States Of America!

And these politicians enact these reckless policies that not only put us, they put the whole world in danger! Want proof that actions have consequences? Trump fired our pandemic response team and threw out Obama's pandemic response handbook, and ignored all the signs that a pandemic was coming. And guess what? Now we're in a pandemic! Another example? Conservatives skimp on regulations regarding building maintenance, and we had a building collapse on itself! Or on the flip side, do you know someone who was killed by a gun or was a victim of a mass shooter? Then guess what? If you still vote that way, you're part of the problem!

Let's put it this way - in the last 5 years, we've been through endless mass shootings, extreme fires, a raging pandemic, riots, floods, tropical storms, extreme climate change, wars, I could go on and on. And you know who was in charge then? It wasn't us, it was you - all you! Because you put a president in charge who thought the solution to climate change was to send nukes to the eyes of hurricanes, and you thought it was funny! He also thought it was funny to say that the reason why California was on fire was because of "poor forest management" and you bought it! You're laughing your ass off!

Because you wanted to "own the libs" and to "make liberals cry"! Ha ha, we got it! We're so owned! We're watching the deadly destruction, and you're laughing and you told us to go fuck our feelings! Not so funny when your house is destroyed in a category 5 hurricane or a forest fire, is it? Or your loved one gets killed in a mass shooting (or a shooting) because the NRA is too chicken shit to do anything about gun control, because 2nd amendment and muh freedums!!!

Politics isn't a joke, it's not funny. There are no do-overs. You can float all the conspiracies you want. Keep believing the lies and the bullshit. Keep listening to blowhards like Alex Jones and Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson and Maria Baritromo. Keep electing the way that an Australian owned news entity owned by a billionaire oligarch tells you to vote. The truth is you're not owning anyone. You're owning yourself. Because if you still listen to these assholes, after all of this, in the end, the only getting owned is you.
