Silent No More

I stand firmly AGAINST the white supremacists and racists and their ilk. There is NO place in America for this sort of ignorance. If you write back to defend these Neanderthals, I am not your friend. If you support the cause of these racists, unfriend me immediately—I am not your friend. Are we clear on this? – Kevin McQuade

Hey kids,

The above quote is from a Facebook post from one of my former college professors.  It is exactly what I wanted to say, but he said it first and much more eloquently than I would have so I included it here and have given him the proper credit.  I am giving Sir Griffin the day off, although his foul language would be most appreciated and accepted on this day.

I have stayed silent for way too long.  Anyone who knows me already knows that I am a proud liberal, a pacifist and a feminist.  I stand for equality for all and Saturday hit me quite hard.  Let me share the story before I berate you assholes that caused this.  And by “assholes who caused this” I mean (and I will not back down or apologize for this) all of you dumbfucks (Sir Griffin wrote that) that voted for and/or continue to support the white supremacist in chief, aka Herr Drumpf.

blues-brothers-quotes-the-blues-brothersI awoke on Saturday completely oblivious to what was going on.  The only TV viewing I did was my normal Sportscenter.  I received a text from my aunt asking if I had seen what was happening in Virginia.  I said no and she replied that there were demonstrations in Charlottesville.  Again, I thought little of it at the time because despite me vehemently disagreeing with Nazis (or as we call them in America, republicans) I know that they have the right to march and protest just like everyone else.  In my mind I was picturing the scene from The Blues Brothers in which the Illinois Nazis were marching whilst getting yelled at, and ultimately forced to jump off a bridge, by protesters.  As Jake (John Belushi) said “I hate Illinois Nazis”.  This is what I thought was going on in Charlottesville.  When I saw what was really happening I just could not believe it.  It was truly disgusting.

Many of the white folks doing Nazi salutes & shouting anti-Semitic slurs in Charlottesville claim to follow a Jewish Rabbi named Jesus. How? – John Pavlovitz

There has not been a day since last November that I have not been embarrassed and ashamed of Drumpf and his followers.  I have not woken up once felling good about my country.  I remain ashamed and embarrassed of the good old USA.  It is not great and Saturday proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

I don’t need to go into all of the details because by now you know them all.  Briefly, a bunch a white supremacists marched on Charlottesville chanting racial  and anti-Semitic slurs.  There was violence, injuries and murder.  It was the exact opposite of what makes America great.  They carried torches and it looked like an old film from Nazi Germany. Take note that these are the same people that bitch and moan about a black man exercising his first amendment rights by protesting silently and peacefully, yet that when they violently protest they think it is acceptable. Violence is never acceptable.

You cannot tell me that this is not a direct consequence of the actions of Drumpf.  These people made no secret that they were Drumpf supporters and if you cannot see that then you are blind to all the facts.  White nationalist and piece of shit David Duke was interviewed at the event and said “We are determined to take our country back…we’re going to fulfill the promises of Drumpf…that’s what we believed in and that’s what we voted for”.

First of all this is not your country.  I don’t thing Duke is a Native American so STFU asshole.  Second, if it was not clear to you last year that Drumpf was a racist it should be absolutely 100% clear to you now.  This is his base.  These are the assholes that voted for him.  Maybe you do not consider yourself a racist, but if you voted for him you definitely showed the world that you are okay with racism.  You, whoever you may be, sicken me. That Drumpf sticker on your car tells me all I need to know about you.

And what about Drumpf himself?  This was the perfect opportunity to disavow himself from these maniacal assholes.  Did he do that?  What do you think?

Nazis are a lot like cats.  If they like you, it’s probably because you are feeding them – John Oliver

Nope, that slimeball, asshole, piece of shit fuckwad did not do that.  Instead he said some BS propaganda that tried to sound like he was against what happened, but then added it was “bigotry and violence on many sides”.  NO IT WAS NOT YOU USELESS & LAZY SON OF A BITCH!!!!!!!  It was a white nationalist rally.  A rally of the klan.  People carrying flags with swastikas and confederate flags.   These are the people 62 million of you deplorable ass hats voted for.  Drumpf himself just told police that police brutality was acceptable.  He told people at his rallies to “beat the crap out of them” and he would pay the legal fees.  This pathetic excuse for a man has no morals and has incited violence hundreds of times.  Should we really be surprised that his followers are now rising up to act like him?  To create the violence he has proposed?

Without a doubt these people are domestic terrorists.  No wall would have kept them out. No Muslim ban could have prevented this.  Is Drumpf going to ban all racist white guys? Of course not.  (I realize that today he came out and said racism is bad, but he sounded completely unbelievable as he read his scripted response and well, too little too late. Any human with an ounce of compassion would have denounced Nazis immediately not two days later. Go to hell you pompous ass)

Look, I despise Drumpf with every fiber of my being and right now I despise all 62 million of you morons that cast your vote for hatred, bigotry and racism.  I think you are all stupid.  I don’t care if you are my oldest friend.  I don’t care if you are member of my family.  I don’t care who you are, but please know that I have no respect for you and I want nothing to do with you.  I just cannot look at you the same way ever again.  You are as guilty as Drumpf.  You made this happen.  You could have prevented it, but your inability to vote for a woman or your inability to get actual facts before casting a vote or your inability to see that man who made fun of a disabled reporter was unfit for any public office made you guilty as hell.  Do I care if you hate me now?  No.  Do I care if my Facebook friends list drops to zero?  No.  If I didn’t care about this country I would not be making such a fuss, but I cannot deal with you, whomever you may be.

Yes, I am angry.  My country has been taken over by bigots, fools and racists.  Any day now Drumpf could obliterate millions of innocent people.  That’s on you.

Namaste
