I ran across this diatribe on social media, here are my viewpoints on this.
Statements from the original poster are in red to represent the Republican and purple to represent my statements.
I am not a Democrat or a Republican. My political views are my own and may overlap with common Democratic or Republican values, but that DOES NOT MAKE ME OR YOU ENEMIES!
“I never dreamt that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here.
I lived in Europe during the Bush Jr. years. Don’t worry; it’s an enriching experience to live in another country. You might like it.
I was happy that I only had to deal with the second-worst President in modern U.S. history for a couple of years.
Cue the Republican outcry for being a traitor that didn’t force themselves to live in the United States for their entire life.
But today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same. I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life so filled with hate that they will agree with opinions that, if they were in their right minds, they would never express as their own. It’s absolutely unbelievable. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone…..then I saw this and I think that it’s pretty close to describing how I feel.
Yes, and the evil is Trump. It’s unbelievable that a President has been able to install lackeys in top-level Government positions that will do his bidding. AG Barr is frightening, he will do whatever it takes to maintain control of the United States for Trump, mark my words.
What’s confusing is that you don’t understand why family and friends are hostile towards you. The fact that you are supporting a Fascist that has no problem sending his goons to attack U.S. citizens, lies incessantly, and runs roughshod over The Constitution might be the reason.
I’m not starting a fight, but it is something to think about. This may open up a ton of outraged comments by some. Many who will argue how “wrong” this post is. My suggestion, save your time and effort! You’re not changing the reality of what we are living by trying to somehow justify this insanity. Nevertheless, I couldn’t resist because we are becoming the Twilight Zone. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!
Be honest, you are starting a fight, you know this is inflammatory and again Trump and his supporters are causing the inflammation.
I suggest using Parler; you can have a safe space full of Groupthink all to your own.
If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.
You are not required to do anything and you are projecting.
Try asking yourself these questions
- Is letting men or women make their own choice of how they show up in the world hurting you?
- Are you clutching your pearls at night with a fear that some man that identifies as a woman might steal them?
- Will someone die?
- Seriously, what is the huge problem you have constructed in your head?
Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
It’s the law to provide census answers already. It’s not difficult for the Government to verify if a census entry is from a U.S. citizen and discard the entries that do not show up as real people.
People can put false information on the Census and will face a $100 fine. That’s Orwellian enough, why do you want more Orwell? I thought most Republicans were for less Government involvement, why aren’t you?
Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.
Illegals aren’t voting in our elections; you were told by Trump that they are, and you believe him. Consider yourself played. Why care in the first place? It’s not like we can’t use math to add a small margin of error to census reports and call it a day.
It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.
Ignoring bounties on U.S. soldiers should be an impeachable offense. I thought Trump was the biggest supporter of the troops in U.S. history. Why aren’t you outraged that a sitting president didn’t do a damn thing about a real threat?
Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.
Seriously?! Do you think this is a reason to leave a country? Do you need a safe space little Trumpkin? How old are you, twenty?
Why not complain about the fact that men must die for their country if they are drafted but can’t legally drink a beer before dying?
People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.
Did you get a bill in the mail to pay for slavery reparations?
Inflammatory rhetoric is outrageous, but harassing people in restaurants is virtuous.
Are you trying to say that Trump Republicans don’t harass other people? Did you know that some U.S. Government representatives, like Moscow Mitch McConnell, don’t host town halls? It’s likely that people are doing the only thing they can to get their message sent to their representatives. Think about it.
People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.
Who’s paying for anyone’s college debt? I know I’m not, are you?
Let’s not talk about the fact that the price of college has increased eight times more than wages.
Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.
Here we go, another xenophobic statement from a Trump Republican. People are flooding our country, bringing diseases contrary to popular Trump Republican beliefs. I suggest reading this study from The Lancet, which is an international group of scientists that has been creating publications since 1823. I suggest you believe them instead of Trump, but I’m sure you will ignore advice from experts as Trump does.
Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.
Oh, I see, those guys with big guns meant to kill you are a welcoming party. Got it.
$5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.
Let’s see, one will kill people that are fleeing hardship, and the other will save people from dying. Would you like a sickle to go with your apathy and complete disregard for human life?
What kind of comparison is this anyway? It doesn’t even make any sense.
If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
Yep, you’re in your twenties. Go back to school, this is fake news.
People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President
So, you’re xenophobic and you’re also against the advancement of women in the United States. What a sad life you must live to be full of so much hate for people that aren’t like you.
We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.
There are 50,000 registered socialists in the United States, which is 0.15 percent of the population.
Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
I agree someone isn’t being held responsible for what they are doing right now.
Criminals are catch-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.
I bet you catch baby fish and don’t release them.
And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”?!
Sometimes, but you are a xenophobe and would like to hold women back from positions of power.
Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it’s racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right, where darkness is light and light is now darkness.
You’re right, and Trump supporters continue to prop up a man with only one moral, ME FIRST. No proof exists that the coronavirus came from China.
Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water and sinking fast. The choice is yours to make. What will it be? Time is short, make your choice wisely!”
Feel free to copy and paste. I did.
So did I
