“After all, some smug, pretentious, solipsistic, raging pseudo-intellectual might castigate and excommunicate you for having jumped aboard the anti-Trump bandwagon (how gauche! how plebian!).
And then where would that leave you?”
“I’M sick and TIRED of violence…I’m TIRED of hate, I’m TIRED of selfishness, I’m TIRED of EVIL. I’m not gonna use violence no matter WHO SAYS SO.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
YES. WE GOT IT. WE GOT IT. TRUMP SAID TERRIBLE TERRIBLE THINGS.
But slow down. We have a civil war in the United States, more or less, about whose violence is worse, and whose hate is more hateful. It’s a COMPLEX situation.
Watch this video, below, in its entirety. If you do not oppose the violence you see, then this website is not for you. I can’t say whether I am ‘solipsistic’ (don’t even know what that means,) ‘smug, pretentious’, or a ‘raging pseudo-intellectual,’ but this I know: I oppose tyranny. I oppose bullying. Above all, I oppose fake reality–mass media distortion, brain washing, mind control, and propaganda. Those are my issues.
I am not “ex-communicating” anybody, but rather seeking a community with a shared ethos of opposition to violence, as trendy as it is right now to endorse violence, since Trump is the worst person we’ve ever had to deal with on our planet. He hasn’t killed anybody but you know, words are the new mass murder.
It is widely, and wrongly assumed, that those who have not worked up a frothing hatred of Donald Trump, are racist, evil, stupid, blind, deaf, and political descendants of the Third Reich–or worse. Nobody ever stops to think they may be concerned with another body of hate and distortion. We can’t all be looking at the same thing all the time. One worries you more, one worries me more.
The platform that opposes Trump is soaked with hate. They have a long and unapologetic record of criminal abuse and vandalism: The elderly, children, teenage girls, even a disabled boy, beaten, in some cases almost to death, (on video) for their support of Trump. I saw one today which shows a Trump hater setting a trump supporter’s hair on fire with a bic lighter. This is all part of the new “normal,” and even the new “right on.”
The first such video I saw was a homeless woman viciously attacked by Trump haters, as she tried to protect his star on Hollywood Boulevard. I’ll post it, if you don’t believe me. In fact, I did post it. And as I posted these things, I assumed people who know my essential way of approaching things would understand that my dissent and opposition was to this new mass hate that so quickly became culturally romanticized and endorsed. This disgust on my part was conflated with a support of Trump.
I have consistently despised tyranny, violence, abuse and degradation.
So what about when Trump commits it?
Please listen: I am going to address Pussy Gate. I am going to address his supposed attack on a disabled reporter. I am going to address his quote about Mexicans. Some things were very strange, some inexplicable, some unforgivable, and some not bad at all, but wildly distorted. But Trump has been President since Friday, and today is Monday, so there is no way he is the reason our lives are impossible. If you refuse to give him a chance, then you are declaring war on the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of hundreds of millions of Americans–all of them immigrants. You’re not attacking Donald Trump–you are attacking hard working people who presently have the first ray of hope for their lives they have had in many years. Hope that was snuffed out by 9/11, and the Globalist PC Warring Reich that used it to justify its destruction of civil, economic, medical, discourse, press and countless other liberties in this country. 50 Million Americans on food stamps. 55,403 deaths from opiates in 2015–roughly the same number of dead from then entire Vietnam war. 20-22 veterans commit suicide every day. Rates of autism and infant deaths from vaccines higher than any industrialized country.
Trump has been President for 3 days. If things are WORSE in 6 months, I will swiftly admit it. But right now I find it malevolent to deprive all Americans of their dignity just because they are choosing hope, for a better America, for their children and grandchildren.
Racism is a luxury only those who can already keep roof overhead can afford. Most Americans are wondering quote simply if they can hope to get a job, pay a mortgage, put food on the table, and keep their kids safe.
I suggest you talk to Trump supporters. They’re everywhere. Ask them why they voted for him, and tell us what they said.
