Shitting on Baltimore & the Irony in it

Standard

So, in typical fashion of this current administration, immediately after telling US congresswomen to leave if they’re going to criticize the USA, our president is SHITTING on the USA. For two days now.

Trump Baltimore Tweets Ex 3

It’s like he was so close to becoming self-aware, and then just squatted, shat, and then ate his own shit. He literally¬†just told US Congresswomen to leave this country¬†because they dared to work on education, poverty, and our general rights, then he gets on Twitter and shits all over Cummings and Baltimore. Shouldn’t he just leave?

The most ironic thing about all of this, isn’t that he’s telling a Congressman that his district isn’t clean, or that he has no idea about what a congressman, governor, or mayor do, it’s that his tweets and the poverty he’s bitching about is essentially a rail against capitalism. That’s the tasty bit. It’s not that Cummings doesn’t do enough for his district, or that he should spend more time there (spoiler: he does spend a fuck ton of time there), it’s that this is what capitalism creates.¬†

More so, has he SEEN the homeless population in say, New York? DC? Every major city? Has he visited any of the rural towns where people live in squalor? Has he looked into the apartment complexes that his son in law, Jared Kushner, owns? You know, the ones that are complaining about it being unsafe, unsanitary, and being run by a slum lord? Has he never once, in his ultra-rich-gold-toilet-having life opened his eyes and LOOKED at the world from an unbiased stand point and tried to do something to HELP Americans?

He’s so hyper-focused on the border, on keeping people out, that the only things he has time for after that is cutting healthcare for those same districts he’s bitching about. Or gutting medicare for the generation that he hopes votes for him. Or making sure that the entire lower class is demonized just for existing.

Oh. I can’t forget Twitter. He will reschedule a day for his “executive time” so he can watch Fox News and tweet in their echo chamber.

It’s shit like this that just gives me a headache. I can’t stand utter hypocrisy, and I can’t stand willingly uneducated people. I’m so tired of rich assholes telling the working-class and people stuck in poverty how much we suck, or how shitty our towns are. I’m beyond tired of the rich ruining us, and then pointing the finger elsewhere.

At risk of ending up on some “domestic terror list” for other reasons than being anti-fascist, I hope that Trump strokes out squeezing out a turd on his golden toilets.

 

Eat the Rich.

Friends & Differing Political/Moral Opinions

Standard

For about a year I kept seeing this meme float around Facebook & Twitter:
Politics and Friends

Fucking wrong. This shit irritated me any time I saw it.. because what it’s essentially saying, is that you should respect someone even if they believe in taking your rights away. That you should continue to remain friends with someone who has vastly different morals from you, or even no morals, despite the fact that it makes you uncomfortable. It essentially says that you should shut up if one of your friends believes in some horrible shit.

It’s fucking wrong.

You do not have to be friends, or hell, even tolerate someone who is morally corrupt, or actively working to/or voting for politicians who are taking away your rights. You do not have to be friends with, or respect someone who is racist, homophobic, sexist or is literally cheering on the concentration camps at our border.

You also don’t have to be friends with someone who slut-shames, someone who participates in class warfare, or someone who doesn’t believe that the poor deserve healthcare and education.

You should not be friends with, respect, or remain in contact with someone who is actively demeaning a social class, race, sex or anything of the sort. You know why?

  1. You’re enabling them.
  2. You’re letting them know it’s okay to be homophobic, racist, classist, sexist etc.
  3. Because you do NOT have to respect, stay in contact with or even be around someone who is in favor of stripping your own rights, or rights of those you love. You are not obligated to love, like, respect, or be around ANYONE. Period.

There’s a clear difference in differing opinions and having polar opposite morals.

I am friends with a few conservatives, but there is a clear understanding that A. They don’t have to be friends with me if they don’t want, and B. That their opinions do not effect my autonomy. I am however NOT friends with people who are racist, homophobic, who wouldn’t support me if I ever needed an abortion or who are blatantly classist. I will not be friends with someone who instead of talking with me about women’s healthcare rights, accuses women who need abortions of being sluts. I will not be friends with someone who believes that just because you can’t afford healthcare, that you don’t deserve it. I will not be friends with someone who hates someone else just because of the color of their skin, who they fall in love with or their accent.¬† I will not be friends with someone who supports life in jail for a woman who gets an abortion, but not only lets a rapist go free, but ALLOWS THEM VISITATION OF THE CHILD. (FUCK YOU ALABAMA).

By “respecting” someone who is literally striping the rights and lives away from others, you are just enabling them.. and thus you are part of the problem.
