I had unfriended someone I knew from high school right after the 2016 Election results.
We were not close friends but we were brought together in camaraderie as fellow track runners.
We did not keep in touch. I would not see her again until 25 plus years later after graduation when she came to my home with her young daughters to get a haircut from my partner.
I unfriended this person because she would not ever listen to facts. She believed a Muslim was waiting around every corner waiting to blow us up.
I told her once I needed to take off from work to keep up with the fact checking.
I always called her out and she never once posted a real fact.
She aided in the fear mongering. I wasn’t having it. It’s just not worth it to feed facts and show people in black and white the details and where they are wrong and have them still not believe you.
But the internet threw up and she ate it.
I was reminded of one of our exchanges recently when a post popped up on my “See my memories” notifications on Facebook:
There is plenty of back and forth and other friends chime in and then at some point we went on with our day.
A year later it pops up and I comment :
I unfriended her last November.
I suddenly felt the frustration again and so this was my reply:
I have respect for people who are worthy of it. I don’t give it freely to the Dunning-Kruger population of Hooterville.
I do think less of you and all trump supporters.
You all bought into his lies and you accepted the unacceptable.
Your vote says to your daughters – a man can grab you by the vagina, hoo-ha, meat socket, whatever the kids are calling it these days, and can still be president.
You are telling your child it’s ok to be touched down there by Trump or any candidate.
Experience and hard work ?
Why bother? – not necessary anymore.
Maybe your daughters will take after the immigrant that’s supposed to live in the Oh So White House and pose spread eagle and naked with cooter showing for days on an online site or print publication and then some day marry rich because that worked well for Malaria – or however you spell her name.
Lady my ass.
Good luck with our educational system.
Betsy DeVos has no formal education on education .
Kids will barely graduate and come out dumb as dirt. Your kids probably think Betsy DeVos sewed the American flag and think Betsy Ross is a supreme.
Your daughters will grow up thinking that ham is a color and won’t they be so excited to show you that they can count to potato
It’s is now okay to make fun of the handicapped because bullying is acceptable and gets you elected.
So what if Johnny killed himself because the kids were mean – what-evs, who cares.
You can still be president
But first you have to hate the right people.
We can now freely discriminate and alienate people that live by a religion that you don’t understand, because for some reason or another you people think that your religion is the only one that should be respected.
You also have to hate blacks and the rapey murdery Mexicans. I hope the ones you encounter in everyday life speak only Spanish because it really bugs your type if Consuela doesn’t speak English.
Ya’ll say things like,“Speak American” , as if that was a language.
Do you remember how worked up conservative “patriots” got over the Coca Cola commercial during Super Bowl XLVIII? I do.
They were outraged because “America the Beautiful” was sung, in many different languages. Beautifully, I might add.
They were so vile and nasty and racist about the whole thing.
They were so upset that the song was not in English only
“They done blasphemed our anthem !”
Imagine their faces when they were told that “America the Beautiful” is not our national anthem.
Looks like DeVoss doesn’t have to work too hard.
How embarrassing for you people. You claim to be patriotic and shit red white and blue ( I would have that checked out by a real doctor) but then you don’t know what our National Anthem is<
Go ahead…… what is it………. I got time………………………………………………..today is good.
Here’s a clue : It rhymes with Czar Dangled Tanner. ………
Aw come on trumpsters………ring a bell?…………………………anything?
The United States of America does not have an official Language. Consuela can talk about cucarachas and frijoles all she wants.
Let’s build a wall. Good one.
If that was ever a smart idea – don’t you think it would’ve been done?
And who in the hell would we get to build the wall?
I doubt some lily-white millennial wants to apply for the job – but they sure will bitch about it when they see an immigrant doing it.
Your type thinks Mexicans are stealing your jobs.
Well, they are.
If you are a housekeeper, day laborer, busboy, or your field of expertise is preparing elote outside in the Texas heat by the front doors of a Michoacana Food Store or pushing the paletta cart down the scorching streets of Oak Cliff.
It’s a very stupid idea to get rid of undocumented workers. Why? They pay taxes that’s why.
Every tax season, millions of undocumented immigrants file their taxes with the federal government — even though they could easily get away without doing so.
Undocumented immigrants pay $12 billion of taxes every single year.
Donald Trump may not have paid federal income taxes for 20 years, but the undocumented immigrants he rails against certainly have.
You all think they are all on welfare and that they should go back to their country. How stupid are you?
I know of an immigrant living in the White House right now that is sucking up your tax dollars. Why don’t you tell her to go back to Slutsylvania?
Best of all – there are “alternative facts” now, so when your girls get married they can still tell their betrothed that they are “virgins”.
But the main reason I have no respect for your kind is the HYPOCRISY
I do not tolerate or respect HYPOCRISY
You little bitches with your, “ The election is over – he won, you have to accept it and move on…..”
