That is a line from a poem I wrote. I thought I posted it on here, but it seems I didn't.
It came to mind when I was in a rare political discussion on my cousin's facebook page. He is a fairly well known musician, so obviously, the
discussion was all anti-trump in nature. Would be like here, but OPPOSITE and most people are saying things against Trump.
Well, anyway, someone typed something that reminded me of one of my poems. I said something like 'some seem to have taken the opportunity to be
hateful but some don't even know they are doing it, like sleeping people.' I then pointed out that it was different from opposing sides saying the
other was 'asleep' . That this was really like sleeping people. They repeat the same sentences in answer. The same talking points over and over.
That would lead one to think they are bots. We have had extra accounts here or trolls, but I haven't seen a bot since a long paragraph of nonsense as
a thread. Here I am about 100% certain the people that exhibit this behavior aren't bots. In fact, most are long standing, fairly active to active
members. They are just in some sort of trance. They can keep this up about 24 hours a day, too.
Keep in mind, I DO NOT mean this to be directed at all fans of Trump. There are some I have just seen a singular objective and repetitive typing
I have kept track. There are some that answered at ALL hours of the day. Made new posts at ALL hours of the day.
I find this to not be possible. I have been online on here at times for 5 hours straight (on a few rare occasions when a big news story happened) if
not at work and find others making threads or posting 15 hours straight or 20 hours straight.
Here is my asleep and awake definition. People have to sleep at some point.
Some people aren't. Or they are bots. Or they share accounts. But they type the same exact same things with the exact same wording, often.
This is the last verse of the poem this all reminded me of. It is about a person with multiple personalities. It goes through all of them and and
you realize it is one called Charla that is speaking.
"But we're way too strong to be scared,
And cunning too.
They can't get us, and neither can you.
We sent Trina out to be with you,
so sure you were you were safe.
She came running back
in so many tears,
This time she'll hide for years."
It was written with many meanings, but the singular unending push to end any argument against Trump...'they can't get us and neither can you'..
reminded me of this. Deeply.
