in Politics

We are now in the aftermath of the 2016 Trumpsterfuck. And though I am not really a cynic, I know because the human condition craves peace of mind, people will start to drink the Kool-Aid pretty fast. Normalizing and thus legitimatizing Trump has already begun. “Oh no he’s not going to do what he said, he didn’t really mean that.”

As Maya Angelou said, “When people show who they are, believe them.”

Resist co-option and normalization. When he does the late-night talk show circuit, and you start laugh at Fraudster-Elect’s jokes, your signature starts to form on what just under half the American public has given him license to do.

Remember this is a man who wants to ban people of a certain religion from entering the country, cleave families apart so he could ship “illegals” over a wall he wants to build. He said through appointments to SCOTUS he would repeal Roe vs Wade and said on record he thought women should be punished for having an abortion. He is a a climate change denier and supports all the Republican measures to limit rights for LGBTQ. If you accept and normalize his behavior, his racist and sexist views, which are well-documented, you lower the bar for social and environmental progress and freedoms every day.
