Aftermath and Genie Out Of The Bottle


The Trump victory, which I still cannot wrap my head around, has raised up a new minority: narcissistic sociopaths have now gained presidential status in America.

Trump's victory was due to the fact that a majority of Americans, a majority that likely includes narcissistic sociopaths, are infantile-thinking so-called "christian" fundamentalists who cannot stomach the idea of same-gender marriage, abortion or birth control, and to whom transgender is akin to something Dr Frankenstein might create; 
And don't forget the Duck Dynasty americans who proclaim their right to own assault weapons and the bottom feeders who thrive on apocalyptic and conspiracy theories. 

And lets's not forget the anti-science, climate change deniers, anti-environmentalists who wouldn't think of living without their latest cell phone, 500 inch HD TV, or pharmaceutical to enhance their manhood. 

Oh, and the progeny of immigrants who feel threatened by immigrants, and people living on pensions with paid for health care who apparently don't need social security or affordable health insurance. 

And the openly racist and closeted racists who want to make America White again. 

ALL OF WHOM THINK THEY HAVE SOMETHING PERSONALLY TO GAIN FROM MR. TRUMP IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

God, I didn't think there were so many of you. KNOW THIS: Trump has gotten what he wanted. HE DOES'T NEED YOU ANY LONGER.

P.S. It sure was nice being married to my huband for the past two years. I expect our marriage will be annulled at the first possible opportunity by the do-nothing congress and new know-nothing president, but our loving relationship of 28 years will continue to survive.

P.P.S. Damn, I forgot about the Pence in the background...you bet his right-sided, fundamentalist, anti-gay, racist ideology will be steering the Trump ship - scarier even than Trump alone.

Beyond the damage Mr. Trump will inflict on the nation, even if Trump proves to have cunning business skills and an ability to "fix" many of the government's shortcomings along with his Republican Congress, his campaign, his vulgar, hateful rhetoric and his throwing flesh to the rabid dogs has given many of his supporters "permission" to use targeted, vile, hate speech and even to take their anger out with actual violence on anyone who is "other".

This is the genie that cannot be put back into the bottle. This is the legacy of Donald Trump's campaign. This is the future of the Republican Party. Consider the post by Blaise Navarro, below:

Dear America,
As I got off work and went to The Bourbon Pub for a minute to greet friends and catch up on the election results the following happened.
I went outside to smoke a cigarette and people passing the bar on the street were jeering at my friends, acquaintances, and strangers. What were they saying? Things like, "Worried, faggots?" Or "Get ready, fags." Or just flat out screaming, "Faggots!" And then just continued walking. 
In the 8 years that I have been a regular patron of the French Quarter gay community I have never heard or experienced that on Bourbon St.
I know LGBT rights were not the only thing on the line in this election. I know its selfish to assume as much. What is not selfish is knowing that as the end is drawing near in the results my life and the lives of others in many minority communities are at risk. This freely expressed hatred is the monster that is being unleashed. 
So thank you. Thank you for the intolerance. Thank you for the ignorance. Thank you for the bigotry. Thank you for the hatred. Thank you for making it possible for people to no longer fear repercussions. Thank you for the fear that I and so many others will now have just to walk down the street.
Sincerely, fuck you!

It's too bad about your marriage, Frank. But I'm sure your relationship will survive.

It will probably take a long time for the Ku Klux to find you boys up there in them mountains, if you're careful.

All I can say, Frank, is I'm glad there are people like you in the world. I'm with you all the way.
