So, we learned today Clinton’s not going to jail and the key provisions of Obamacare, the two most costly provisions that gave rise to all the rest of it, are likely to remain, but, just as Hillary recommended, be amended, he says.
All together now:
What The Fuck Did You Think Was Gonna Happen?
On a more serious note, for the third night in a row there are protests in major cities all over the United States. In one case, on Thursday night in Portland protestors got destructive. Without qualification, I condemn that.
But consider this. For fifteen straight months, sometimes several times a day and in front of thousands of frothing supporters, the now president elect of the United States, identified, isolated and attacked people because of the way they pray or the countries they came from. Unlike Trump supporters, apparently, these targets of his rage were not cynical enough to imagine that it was all a lie. They believed him when he said he would rip their families apart, even the families of those who have shed blood for this country. They believed him when he said he would establish a religious test for people entering this country and force people of a certain religion to register with the government. They believed him when he promised that he would torture members of that religion – in direct contravention of the laws of god, the globe and the nation – based entirely on his suspicions.
Now imagine that followers of this man are painting hateful slogans on prayer room doors, chanting hate at brown skinned school children, attacking Muslim women with iron bars. He didn’t ask them to do it, certainly. He simply fed the hate that was already there, and has said not a single word to stop it.
You keep telling me that I need to put myself in the shoes of the people who voted for Trump. I’ve been in their shoes my whole life. So now you put yourself in the shoes of the people I just described. You’d never tolerate it. That’s why you have guns, you tell me, just in case the government ever even thinks about doing to you what this man has promised to do them.
Now you and I, we know he’s a liar and a fraud, and that he was only trying to whip you up into a frenzy. But put yourself in a Mexican American’s shoes, or a Muslim woman’s shoes.
And then tell me that we all need to come together under the beneficent smile of the president elect.
Sure, the minute he says out loud, just as he has about Hillary’s imaginary crimes and Obama’s birth certificate, and Obamacare, that it was all just a con.
Soon as he does that we’re golden.
In the meantime, what the fuck did you think was gonna happen?
