Question: How did the election of one guy undo the moral and ethical fiber of america? Over night we went from more and more states permitting marijuana and same sex marriages to the streets being filled with swastikas and hate.
We are all being had. Still.
Trump wasn’t elected by the misogynists and the skinheads. (Well not ONLY the Misogynists and Skinheads) but by People that were tired of hearing the same Political machine, the same rhetoric, the gut instinct that maybe Hilary’s public persona wasn’t what she was really like behind the curtain. (I voted for Hilary…mostly because I didn’t think Johnson stood a chance.)
But more than 50% of the nation voted for ‘anything but the status quo’.
They didn’t suddenly become white supremacists, and you suddenly don’t need to fear walking home at nite. If you do, you most likely live in a bad part of town and had to be just as careful last Friday as you do today.
Which brings me to my theory:
The media is righteously pissed that America still voted in Trump, despite their best efforts.
And now they’re taking every opportunity to have a temper tantrum in public, and the people that normally do shitty things like riot and loot and sew dissent are using that platform to do the shitty things they did last week, to more people.
As far as those that say “You’re just a middle class white guy, you can’t possibly understand.” Back the truck up. I volunteer, I teach children, I work to make the world a better place and goddammit, that didn’t change with the residents in the Whitehouse.
