As you can imagine, I’m not happy about the elections. I’m glad there wasn’t as much violence as I predicted, though I think if Hillary won things would be much worse out there. Y’all know how angry mobs carrying firearms can be.
Naturally my first impulse was to hammer out a bunch of nasty things about the unsavory people who voted for him, but in the middle of it I thought, “Why resort to insults? Isn’t that what Trump supporters do?” Yes! I should strive to be better than that. Here’s some of what I almost posted:
Not everyone is upset at Trump’s tiny-handed rise to power, of course. After all, he and the GOP went out of their way to include all the lovely colors of the shit-tinged Republican rainbow. White supremacist douchenozzles! Anti-woman fuckfaces! Homophobic shitmonkeys! Extremist Christian troglodytes! Self-hating gay Republican dipshits! Tax-dodging billionaire asswipes! Sscience-denialist fucktards! You name it, they’ve got it. If you’re one of these types or even just leaning in their direction, you’re A-OK in the GOP’s book and you’re bound to be super jazzed with what the new regime comes up with next. Your generous vote will allow him and the GOP live out all their fascist fantasies in the new American theocracy, even though they’ll probably end up fucking you over as well. But at least ya got revenge on them libtards for electing that black guy, right?
Whew, I’m glad nobody will ever read that! I’ve decided not to insult his supporters in such a manner…because that would be distasteful.
Instead, why not look at the effect Trump has had on America in these few days after his election? His supporters are already out there working hard to bring about the change they feel our country needs. So in the spirit of uniting us as Americans, here are some of the deeds Trump has inspired so far.
Calgary filmmaker Chris Ball said that he was watching the election results when supporters of the Republican candidate began to lob epithets. ‘We got a new president you fucking faggots,” they said, Ball told Metro Calgary. When Ball left the bar alone later in the night, Trump supporters followed him to an alley way and assaulted him, Ball said. The last thing he remembers before awaking bloody on the pavement was having a beer bottle smashed over his head. Friends took him to the hospital.
But wait, there’s more! These

…and on and on and on.
But seriously, folks… This harassment and violence will continue in Trump’s name for years. He’s encouraged it and made it part of his platform, after all. He’s empowered bullies and worse, reframing the worst aspects of human nature as patriotism. It took him almost a week to finally come out and half-heartedly tell them to stop, but he wasted almost no time getting on Twitter and pouting about all these anti-Trump protests springing up around the country which are, as we all know, totally legal (minus the idiots who are breaking stuff and hurting others). We needed to elect a leader, but all we got was a whiny little bitch with Putin’s hand up his puppet ass.
So yeah, I’m still bitter.
I’ve been watching the overwhelming torrent of anguish and despair from all over the internet and social media as people begin to realize the horrific things that will be coming from our newly-Republicanized government. People are losing their shit out there. Kinda like how conservatives freaked out when we elected Obama…except this time there are real and rational reasons for being upset. (Eight years later they’re still waiting for him to take away their guns and turn this country into a Muslim police state. I guess he still has a few weeks left to do all that, so stay tuned.) This time the rights of innocent people really are in danger of being snatched away: womens’ rights, healthcare, marriage equality, religious freedom, immigrants’ rights…it’s all on the chopping block. It’s like Christmas morning for these white supremacist Alt-Right twats.
If you’re not a straight white Christian male, your hard-won rights are now hurtling towards a cliff. They’re going to roll civil rights back 40 years in this country. It’s going to be ugly. So prepare yourselves, folks. That whole election circus was just the opening act of something much, much worse. I really, really hope I end up being wrong, but right now things are looking grim as hell.
I’ve also been reading some interesting stuff about why people voted for him in spite of his bigotry, in an effort to better understand it, but this is all I can squeeze out for now…
