So, great work fediverse, you've shown you can be as toxic as the site you're making so much fun of.
I can't specifically comment on US politics as I don't follow it closely.
I can see that social media sometimes contributes to polarisation. The Fediverse should be better than that, but this episode should act as a warning. Sadly, I have an image of the villagers being roused and getting out the pitchforks & flaming torches.
