To those that voted for Trump, I get that people wanted change. You apparently wanted it badly enough to suffer the consequences of that desire. Well maybe those of you that voted for Trump won’t suffer but so many of us will. It is already happening. As if racism and misogyny wasn’t prevalent enough already in many parts…lets just set that fucking powder keg on fire and see what happens. But seriously, what did you think was going to happen when you elected a misogynistic, sexist, racist, hate filled narcissist to the highest office in our country. When you hold up as a role model someone who brags about assaulting women, makes fun of the disabled, and bullies all who disagree with him, what do you think is going to be the result? Oh, maybe you didn’t think past your own agenda. You want what you want so badly that you don’t care who gets hurt in order for you to have it. Well people are already getting hurt and he hasn’t even taken office yet. Suicide hotlines spiked right after the results were broadcast. Racism and violence is already happening, sanctioned by Trumps own hate filled tirades during his campaign. The fucking KKK is throwing him a parade. That’s certainly a burning cross red flag right there. WTF!? How many women will likely be assaulted now that our commander and chief has bragged and laughed about doing it himself? Really!? Seriously, did you think this through at all!? This is the first time ever that a man has been elected president that exhibits openly and without apology everything that a worthy president should not be! Well whatever happens now going forward, you must accept responsibility for your part in it. You will wear the Stain of Shame for the acts of inhumanity that are already happening as a result of who you elected.
Into the Fire
I know why people are apathetic…
because the pain of helplessness
and futility is simply too much to bear.
better to navigate this plain in an
altered state until we can make what
ever kind of exit is possible.
Caring would require doing the hard work…
facing challenges…being committed….
and getting your heart broken when you
have to witness inhumanity.
I will choose the forging (every time!)
and I will emerge a sword.. for justice!
