Ok, guys. I went dark not only because I was studying German like a mofo these past couple of months but also because I wanted to wait to write after this election season was over.
Well it is over and about 25% of American voters chose the orange butthole to be the next President. To the 47% of eligible voters who couldn’t be bothered to vote – fuck you – but this post is not about those fuckwits, but the ones who voted for the puckered orange butthole of malignant narcissism.
In the first time in nearly 3 decades of voting, I will say, unequivocally, that he is NOT my president. I didn’t like either Bush but they were my – our Presidents – but this thing is not and he never will be. I was one of the 93% of African-American women voters who voted for Hillary Rodham Clinton. I will hold on to that, even as I’m deeply hurt and ashamed that my home state of Pennyslvania, the gotdamn birthplace of our nation, FFS, decided this complete ball of hateful incompetency would make a good POTUS.
And I’m done crying.
To the white Americans who voted this piece of shit into office: this is all on you now (I believe over 50% of white women and over 60% of white men voted for this POS). You can hem and haw (the media! the FBI!), but this is all your fucking fault. You did this. And you are no better than him. You voted for (just to name a few):
Sexism (including rape, sexual assault and harassment of women)
Classism and Social inequality
Democracy and Freedom. Against the principles this country was founded on – these include, but are not limited to, freedom of religion, expression and assembly. These tenants are the foundation of our Republic and you voted against that. Just making sure we’re clear.
You did this. You broke it and I blame you, and I will hold you accountable for the demise of our Republic. I don’t want to hear about “emails” or “I Just didn’t like her” or her husband was a “sleaze.” There is no valid reason except rabid racism and sexism as to why you would choose Cheetolini – an admitted sexual predator and business and tax cheat – over someone who is smart, immensely qualified and experienced. No decent white person (and there are obviously many) who is not a racist, bigot and/or sexist asshole would ever, in good conscience, vote for this man. That is the truth, so if you did, you are a racist/sexist piece of shit just like him. Or, if you are a woman, you are also definitely a racist and a sexist and, in addition, a self-loathing piece of shit -just like him.
No, no, don’t try to weasel out of it now even as you celebrate the occasion of shooting yourselves straight between the eyes – don’t try to tell me that you were unaware of his ties to the alt-right or that he was endorsed by the KKK or his anti-semitic taunts or that he believes women are just objects to be used and discarded at will. Or that he didn’t really “mean” all that he has said and done. Or that evidence of his vile racism doesn’t go back decades. Don’t tell me you didn’t know he’s been attacking President Obama for years about not being a “real” American with his Birther lies. You sat by while the Republicans obstructed and attacked President Obama at every turn. You didn’t care, because you agree with him and reveled in his filthy, disgusting, hateful bile. You called yourselves Christians and then proceeded to go against every teaching of Jesus Christ. (Did you forget that Slaveowners were nominally Christians too? Well I didn’t). You are hypocrites of the first order.
You told yourself he was just “tapping into” a “populist,” “anti-establishment” sentiment. GMAFB. Spoiled little dumb rich boy who inherited Daddy’s money is about as establishment as you can get. And you fell for it, hook, line and sinker; just as long as he kept reinforcing your deluded sense of white privilege.
For 18 months, hell, for years, you heard it all and you embraced it, endorsed it and waved it away as “boy talk.” You think black people didn’t know what you meant when you said “well, I like him because he tells it like it is.” Oh, yea, we know exactly what he meant and what you meant. You meant that you like that he says out loud what you truly feel about your fellow black and brown and gay and Muslim and Jewish, etc., citizens. You like that he makes fun of people with physical disabilities and that he thinks a woman’s worth is tied solely to whatever she can do on her back (but only while she is “hot” and under the age of 35, natch). You like that he promises to give you “your” country back to you, presumably from all those nasty women and coloreds who have taken it away from you.
You know what, I saw those rallies and I heard people screaming their slurs and their bile and their threats. I won’t bother repeating them here. A lot of them were what I have come to know from my years coming of age in the 1970s and 1980s in Pennsyltucky – not very bright, ignorant, usually fat*, typically ugly*, losers who can’t compete on the global stage and cling to their whiteness because they have nothing else to offer the world. No honor, no character and no compassion or heart. People who know that the color of their skin is the sole advantage they have in this 21st century economy, because they know they could never compete (let alone win) on the global stage that is, more and more, rapidly becoming a reality. But I actually have more respect for those people. At least they own their racism and are unafraid to shout it from the rooftops and wave their little Confederate flags. They’re gross and stupid, no doubt, but at least they have the courage of their fucked-up convictions.
But the ones who I truly despise, the worst of the worst, are the cowards who should know better, who do know better, but don’t care to and don’t care – about anyone but themselves and the maintenance of their white supremacy. The ones who are willing to burn down our democracy so they can prolong the status quo of white privilege.
Y’all people make me especially sick.
And when your orange Gropenführer (TM, Internet) fucks you over (because like all dictators he will), I will laugh in your face and tell you I told you so and that it is all your fault that you’re suffering. I just hope that me and mine aren’t dragged down with you.
Oh, and one more thing. You may have won this battle, but we’re going to win the war. Women aren’t going back to the times when they could be raped and beaten with impunity. Black people aren’t going to the back of the bus. And gays aren’t going back in the closet. If you, the GOP and der Gropenführer think we won’t fight tooth and nail to get our country back from your evil clutches, you’re stupider than I thought.
So bring it on. Oh, and, fuck you very much.
*Normally, I don’t go after people’s physical appearance, but since Cheetolini has lived his life judging women by their appearance, I feel it’s fine for me to say that I’ve noticed again and again just how frankly unattractive his supporters tend to be. All that hate must be bad for the skin. Just sayin’.
